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 Punta Cana

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.

Wonderful on-the-sand condo.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this property. The photos are accurate, but they don't come near to the real beauty found there. Everything you need is provided, including the sound of the wind and waves every evening.

While it is easy to just relax and stay put, we recommend renting a car and exploring Higuey, and Play Boca Chica (especially on a Sunday). Stop by one of the many road side stands and buy the sweetest pineapples, mangoes, and bananas. Yum!!

Denyse's info packet that she sends a week or two prior answered most of our questions: when we had other questions, she was very quick to respond.

It doesn't get any better than this!

Quiet Tranquility Right on the Water

  • 5 of 5

This unit is perfectly appointed and a great place and location for families. My kids and I had a great week here and would love to visit again. The area is safe with lots of great spots close by. I definitely recommend having a rental car. Awesome vacation!

Punta Cana Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 wonderful & relaxing weeks in this spaious condo. Well equipped and spotlessly clean. The large deck provides a wonderful domain to enjoy the palm tree lined ocean as you sit in comfort under the the covered balcony. This is the quiet, natural and peaceful part of Punta Cana. The beach is rarely busy and the pool is superb in temperature and cleanliness. The owners and local staff go out of their way to ensure your stay is wonderful. Great beds and zone controlled air conditioning ensure your comfort.

Awesome Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start! Ocean front condo, quiet, relaxing, just breath taking. The condo was very clean, and well kept. The entire staff was very nice and helpful, even the security and the gate keeper. They were very helpful lining up tours for the kids, such as zip lining. One of the ladies cooked an authentic Dominican meal for us one night, that was awesome. To Denyse, the owner, who made sure

we were happy with everything in the condo, gave great driving directions, places to eat, things to do. I highly recommend anyone to stay here, you want regret it. I highly recommend renting a car at the airport as the drive is about 20 miles away. Plus this gives you so many options to go places for shopping and eating. Driving to the resort is easy and the highway to the resort is top notch. Watch out for the motorbikes. They're everywhere.

Beautiful location....

  • 4 of 5

This condo was beautiful. Right on the beach with a pool. Very quiet community. We had a great time our family of 4. Only one complaint. It's far from food shopping and restaurants. 35 minutes since you're not familiar with roads. Wish I would have had someone do food shopping for us before we arrived. Other than that, it's a great value.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you had a great time. Many of our guests really enjoy being in the quieter less busy area of Punta Cana. We think driving 20+ minutes on the new highway is more than worth the crowds and overhead planes we escape. I'm so sorry that your excessive plane delays caused you to arrive too late to shop.

Great time visiting the DR for the first time

  • 4 of 5

The condo is beautiful and very spacious. We were welcomed by the management team as soon as we arrived. We always had fresh water, hot water, and the pool was amazing. The condo has the best view out of all of them, it is literally feet from the ocean. The only draw back is that we didn't have another family with kids show up until half way through our stay and that is a chance we always take. It was very quiet and our daughter was a bit bored in the front end of our trip. There are no restaurants or really anything to do. We did book an excursion with Canopy Tours to zip line and had the best experience! I highly recommend it! We rented a car which was a complete disaster. They totally rip you off. They charge for what they call mandatory insurance. So our $134 a week car ended up to be over $300. We had a tiny car which made us feel unsafe on the roads. The locals drive 100 MPH or 15 so it is quite an experience. The office rents cars and will pick you up from the airport and that is what we would do if came again. We met a couple that owns a condo here names Libbie and Berry and they were life savors! We ended up to be great friends at the end of our trip. They knew everything of what to do and what not to do. We packed steaks, chicken, pasta, etc and everything kept fine. I would highly recommend doing this! The grocery store experience is not that great. The locals really try to rip you off with everything from getting gas in our car to buying beer so just be very aware. I felt very safe in our condo, we had a 24 hour security guard. I did get a pair of flip flops stolen that I left by the outdoor shower but I was told that normally does not happen. The unit has a ton of snorkel gear and you can walk down to Dreams and they have a huge reef you can snorkel. We did this everyday! It was incredible. Also on the way back we stopped at this little shack called tropical treasures and it's literally the only thing on the beach outside of a resort. They serve no food but they do have beer and really good pina colodas. I also got a massage there for $40 and it was great. If you are looking for a very quiet peaceful vacation this is it!

Owner's Response: We have never once in 5 years felt even slightly ripped off. The Dominicans are the friendliest, nicest people on earth which is exactly why we chose to buy a property in this country. We don't speak Spanish and yet they are truly kind and helpful. There is a restaurant just a little further down the beach from 'Tropical Treasures' and another and some souvenir stores in the other direction. There are 3 major modern grocery stores with countless recognizable North American and European brands. One has an excellent Black Angus steaks butcher counter. I would never recommend packing chicken in an international suitcase. Every rental car company in the world will also try to get you to upgrade your insurance but it is not mandatory. I was ripped off in Toronto once until I learned to say no. You should always choose the amount of insurance you feel comfortable with. It is always a good idea to check your credit cards to see what help they offer with rental car insurance. The gas station pumps are totally modern so I don't know how they could rip you off. I have been leaving my sandals by the outdoor shower for 5 years without the slightest worry or hearing of any so I’m sorry that you had bad luck. There are an extremely large number of tours available that will pick up at the complex. My guests have done dune buggy rides to Macao Beach, swimming with dolphins, catamaran party boats, deep sea fishing, Saona Island trips, market tours, zip line tours, walking miles on the beach, swimming in the ocean and pool, snorkeling in a nearby reef and inexpensive massages. There is a water park open to the public nearby. This is a small private condo complex not a giant all inclusive resort which is its best feature but you can buy a day pass to the nearby resort. As far as I can tell you don't have a single complaint about our apartment so I’m glad you had a nice stay in our home.
