Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Sitting on the balcony our 3rd floor apartment affords you a gorgeous view of the calm Caribbean. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The building is new and well taken care of. There is a swimming pool and jacuzzi, chaise lounges, outdoor tables and chairs and kayaks. The master bedroom is spacious with a king size bed. The guest bedroom has two queen size beds and the children's room has two twin size trundle beds to sleep four. Central air conditioning. The beach right out back is maintained by the grounds-keepers. Snorkeling right off our beach you will see sea spiders, small tropical fish and sea urchins. The building boasts a small gym with treadmills and free weights. The building, Aqua Tower has a website which you can find on line.

Our apartment building is very family friendly. Most of the units are owned and used by families that live in Santo Domingo who come to spend the weekends at the beach. It is perfect for small children, as the pool is shallow and there is a swingset in the sand. The family atmosphere is welcoming, but we would not want to have renters who will play loud music or be partying. All of the proprietors in the building have an agreement to keeping the atmosphere familial. If this sounds like it suits your needs, we'd be happy to rent to you.

About Jennifer Willner

Jennifer is a school teacher and Ianir is an entrepreneur. We have two lovely daughters: Mikaela is fourteen and Arielah is nine. We are an international family and are currently living in Santo Domingo, where we have a house. We use our Juan Dolio apartment about twice a month. We LOVE to travel, meet new people and explore new places. We also love to enjoy our life here in the beautiful Dominican Republic. We appreciate good food and drink, interesting conversation, good books and spending time with our family and friends. We have lived in numerous countries and moved back to the DR because it is the place that we most love. We'd love to share this special place with others.

Family-friendly, comfortable, with great view!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 and my mother-in-law had a great 8 nights at Jennifer's place. First, the view from the balcony is great to wake up to every morning and relax to in the evening. We enjoyed the private beach area for night time strolls and snorkeling (best spot is off to the right near the bent coconut tree and off the end of the concrete jetty).

The condo is filled with families with kids and all were super friendly. The staff were very helpful though most did not speak much English. New Years eve there was an informal party and they shot fireworks right off the pool area - great way to kickoff the new year!

The condo is very roomy and clean. It is not luxury, but full of family comfort. With any area of high humidity, some things show rust, but the unit is in fine shape. We cooked quite a few meals and for breakfast (as we often find outside the US), free range eggs has the bright orange color yoke and taste so much better.

Jennifer was super responsive via WhatsAp even though she was on her own vacation elsewhere. She was full of great suggestions and were quick to answer any questions.

I would suggest a car to get the most from your stay - there isn't too much within walking distance. Juan Dolio is equal distance to Santo Doming and La Romana/Cayahibe and convenient to both areas. Zona Colonial is a must - we enjoyed Pat'e Palo (the oldest Tavern in the new world) and the popsicles at Paletas Bajo Cero are the bomb! The Three Eyes park and the Botanical Garden (esp the Japanese Garden) are also worth a visit. The Chu Chu Colonial is a nice relaxing overview and we enjoyed making our own chocolate bars at the Kah Kow chocolate workshop

We also enjoyed the rum tour at Ron Barcelo just north of San Pedro de Macoris - very informative and excellent rums. Altos de Chavon at Casa de Campo was decorated for the holidays and when the lights came on in the evening, it was magical. The Caves of Wonder was worth the short 1 hour visit and while they officially say no photos, the guides were tolerant if you snuck a few in without flash with your phone. 8-)

We went on the Seavis Nature Complete tour and it was excellent. Really good snorkeling off Isla Catalina and a River cruise up Rio Chavon, and then visit the their Tanama Jungle Ranch. We drove to their office in Cayahibe, but they can also provide transport for additional fee from Juan Dolio.

For a relaxing and fun family vacation, I would highly recommend Jennifer's place!

Perfect Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for my family and I to relax and enjoy the island life. Not only was the view fantastic and the beach spectacular the apartment itself was clean, well equipment for cooking and relaxing. The building staff was very helpful with ordering food and recommending places to visit and shop. It is a home away from home!! Oh, I cant forget to mention the private pool and beach!! WOW. I will be booking here again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at this beachside apartment. The view out to the sea is spectacular. The beach itself is small and quaint which made me feel like it was my own little piece of heaven. The pool is large and great for kids....not to mention the relaxing hot tub. But for someone looking to workout the facilities on the first floor allow that option. The apartment itself was clean and larger than I expected. The balcony was my favorite place to sit in the evening. This place was everything we hoped it would be!

Wonderful Apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Jen's place was fantastic! It is much bigger on the inside than you would think, and can comfortably sleep 6. The apartment is very clean and modern but is decorated so that you truly feel like you are on a tropical beach vacation. The pool and private beach are the absolute best! I would highly recommend staying here. I know would again for sure.

Beautiful, spacious apartment, with amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is right in front of the beach, so the view is spectacular. The pool and jacuzzi were also a highlight of our stay. The apartment is very spacious and is well stocked. It has a very homey feel and even had toys for my daughter to play with. Nearby there are many restaurants, shops, and markets. Amazing place, we had a great time.
