About the property

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom Front Line Beach Condo

We invite you to share our beautiful home set right in the sand of Playa Palmera Beach the jewel of Punta Cana's Coconut Coast. Live the luxury and breathtaking views you'll never tire of at the specific condo unit which was toured and exclaimed over on House Hunters International. See why this location was the winner.

If you weren’t relaxing on your spacious, second floor balcony you would be standing in the sand with nothing but palm trees and breaking surf in front of you and gorgeous infinity and lap pools to the side.

Enjoy staying at the end of the road in paradise with breathtaking Caribbean vistas. Watch the surf break from your 300 square foot balcony, Living & Dining rooms, Master bedroom, even the kitchen sink right here! Throw the glass doors open to fall asleep surrounded by the sound of waves.

Our richly detailed, 1722 square foot home, has two Master suites. See palm trees from each and every room. Grill dinner while sipping cocktails surrounded by palm trees and ocean. Most importantly, being truly front line, you will feel the ocean breeze day and night. AC is provided but we believe you will soon fall in love with and prefer the palm tree rustling sea winds.

This exclusive, gated community of only 30 units, has a well cared for private beach offering sun or a quiet, shady spot. 24/7, not really necessary, security means constant peace of mind. In fact, there is nothing to do but endlessly relax. Enjoy watching a sky full of stars.

Inside you will find a fully equipped apartment with AC, ceiling fans, 2 separate showers, full size washer & dryer, gas stove, oven, fridge, bottled water dispenser, 42” TVs with Cable, DVD/BlueRays, radio/CD player, alarm clocks, security safe, microwave, cookware, fully loaded kitchen and bar dishes, coffee maker, blender, rice cooker, toaster, hair dryers, iron & ironing board, linens, towels/beach towels, children’s sand toys, board games, video, music & book libraries. FREE fiber optic cable WiFi provided inside the unit. Also free WiFi by the pool. Free MagicJack phone calls to USA and Canada.

Experience the scenic drive from the Punta Cana airport on the new 4 lane highway which makes the drive fast, easy and safe by rental car or arranged pick up to arrive at a place full of comforts and few distractions yet near to a convenience store, bank, artisan souvenirs, restaurants and a water park. You can choose to never leave the beach or head toward the casinos and night life if you prefer.

If you are looking for more than lounging with a good book and snorkeling right outside your door the onsite manager can arrange golfing, dolphin swims, boating, fishing, dune buggies, windsurfing, para-sailing, horseback riding, massage, shopping trips and more.

You will never find a friendlier home away from home. Let our vacation home be your home for the perfect get away experience.

(This is a NO Smoking unit.)

About Denyse Gantenbein

We are a Canadian and Swiss couple who live in the United States but love to travel whenever we can manage it.

Denyse Gantenbein purchased this condo in 2012

Why Denyse Gantenbein chose Uvero Alto

We love the friendly Dominican people. They are always so happy and fun. We have seldom met such consistently nice people in all of our travels.

What makes this condo unique

Las Dunas is small and personalized. Everyone is friendly and social yet it is quiet enough to have the beach or pool all to your self at times.

The view you dream of

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! The view was amazing and we loved being away from the tourist scene. We appreciated the guards help with luggage and felt very safe and secure. Marcia was great and helped us coordinate our tour pickups and arranged for a cook to come and prepare a meal in the condo. Elisa fixed us an amazing typical Dominican meal and we had leftovers for a couple of extra meals. It was a bargain! The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms updated. The accommodations were perfect for my husband and I and our granddaughter. It would have been nice if there had been a few more essentials in the kitchen such as sugar, salt, pepper and coffee filters and maybe enough laundry detergent for a couple of loads but other than that it was perfect. The sunrise on the balcony was breathtaking and we loved having the beautiful pool basically to ourselves.

Condo is as described.-on the most beautiful beach. Palm trees, yellow sand and no people. There is a wonderul comfortable balcony to sit on and watch the ocean. The ocean is perfect for most swimmers -minimal surf. Seaweed is quickly removed from the beach -while we were there it was bad on a Couple of days but mostly very clear. Infinity pool is warm and pristinely clear. Condo is well equipped - boogie boards, books and games and owner is quick to address any concerns as quickly as possible. Plenty of kitchen stuff. Well equipped although it would be nice to have had a few spices, household supplies as they do only supply the bare minimum. ( they do tell you this however)

Beds are comfortable and there is AC if you need it. We preferred to sleep with the sound of the ocean and the gentle sea breeze.

A car is essential as there are no worthwhile shops close by. A couple of mini marts about a mile away but very basic stuff in them. We had planned to self cater and a stop at supermarket on way through was easy and hassle free.

The beach is walkable for miles. LOs Dunas is flanked by two large all inclusive resorts but besides people walking along the beach you would barely know they were there.

We did one day trip away to Saona Island. It was nice to return to our private oasis and we didn't venture out much after that. Swimming, walking the beach and reading were the perfect vacation. We ate in Bavaro on three occasions. JEllyfish, Capitan Cook and Citrus. Would recommend all of them.

I hesitate to recommend as this is a hidden gem in paradise. The owner is committed to making sure you enjoy your stay - thank you for letting us share your little piece of paradise. We hope to return.

Owner's Response: I understand why you'd want to keep our 'hidden gem' hidden. I feel that way about good restaurants sometimes but thank you for getting the word out that we are a 'little piece of paradise'.

So worth it!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as described by the owners and Denys provided ongoing communication which was very helpful.

The condo was spacious, clean, well maintained and equipped with all the essentials. My favourite aspect was the unobstructed view of that wonderful blue-green ocean. Standing in the bedroom or living room, I was awestruck looking out! And of course the huge balcony had ample room for relaxing while taking in the breathtaking views. The balcony sheltered us so we even sat outside during a rainfall.

Finding a lounge chair down by the pool or beach was very relaxed, unlike major resorts where people save chairs at 7am and are crammed together. We walked the oh so soft sand, and swam in the beaches all along the area near Las Dunas. Apparently there are 30 miles of beautiful sandy beaches. We managed to see about 5 miles that we enjoyed walking along.

Taxis are pricey in the Dominican Republic but when we saw the gas prices we could understand why. We got a free shuttle from the airport to the Four Points at Sheraton Hotel and stayed overnight there. The hotel is a drop off depot so we brought supplies for a charity listed on The next morning we walked 5 minutes to a grocery store to stock up for the week. We had arranged to pay for a driver from Las Dunas condo to pick us up at the hotel at noon and he was there right on time. We didn’t have to worry about directions or driving to the condo, so it was great.

We sure appreciated all the friendly staff at the condo and were pleased that the contact person in the office was fluent in English.

A big thank you to the hosts for sharing their lovely place!

Beautiful quiet beach, lovely swimming pool, clean and comfortable condo with easy logistics. Combined with a few days of the hustle and bustle of Santo Domingo it was the perfect vacation.
