About Wendy Diaz

We are a family of four living in the city; we have this beautiful beach home to rest. We rent it out when we're away. We prefer families or quiet couples, we love children and the apartment is on the first floor so elders or people with any physical challenge can easily access property.

Wendy Diaz purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Wendy Diaz chose Juan Dolio

This is the best money can wake up to the sounds of waves in your room, the breeze is so warm and good blowing by the terrace you will never use the air walk 5 steps outside the terrace and you're inside a turquoise infinity pool that makes your sight get lost in the ocean right outside that has a PRIVATE beach away from the crowds. Relaxation and complete peace is the reason why you should be coming to stay with us!

What makes this apartment unique

Private beach; huge pool, Jacuzzi, BBQ, children welcome, 1st floor (no stairs separates you from pool or beach) Fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher and washer/dryer to make daily chores a breeze.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We loved the people, the history of the island, the Caribbean food and the condo. I personally hope to return within the year..."

apartment was sparkling clean

  • 5 of 5

Wendy kindly greeted me on arrival, she had previously sent great information of where to go, things to see and do; her apartment was sparkling clean; the direct beach access was perfect and you may also enjoy access to the luxurious pool.

This Unit is located on the 1st floor overlooking the pool and sea with breathtaking views and can accommodate up to 8 guests; includes complementary WiFi, parking space for one vehicle.

Super safe, convenient, spacious, the view is breathtaking. This is my second time staying with this host and i will definitely be back again.

I would never rent a hotel in Dominican Republic after staying here. Thanks!

Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

Beautiful view, calm ocean with breaking wall, snorkelling, nice pool and hot tub.

Convenient location, close to Santo Domingo airport, restaurants, bank, and supermarket. Locals were very friendly and the manager (Pedro) and the other grounds workers were very nice and helpful.

Cons:

Kitchen needs to be updated, fridge constantly leaked water from the freezer, we were charged $45 US from our damage deposit for three towels that we didn't lose or take. Took several emails and two weeks to get our deposit back and the contract states that it should be within a week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! First, clients left towels by the pool and cleaning lady had to pick them up. Finally, towels were missing so we assume clients again left them outside or by the beach. Unfortunately they had to charged to be re-purchased. All this is informed to clients on the manual. Our home is more than perfect but nobody likes to be charged and perhaps reaction is just to say bad things.

Spectacular View! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful four night stay at Wendy Diaz' Juan Dolio apartment. We were grandparents, two grown daughters, two grandsons, one a year old, and the other not quite three. The apartment was perfect for our family and the location couldn't have been more wonderful The fact that the apartment is on the first floor made it especially great for us. We could walk the little boys out to the baby pool and the beach and back with no big preparation. The fact that the apartment not only has a great pool but is beachfront as well was wonderful. We enjoyed both the pool and beach whenever we wanted. Waking up to the sound of the waves and that beautiful view was amazing. We found many beautiful shells on the beach. The location of the apartment in the town of Juan Dolio was also very convenient. It was a very quick drive to the local store which had most of what we needed. We went out to eat every day as well and loved El Concon - went there three times. The apartment had everything we needed and the building superintendent, Pedro, was helpful and very attentive, answering any questions we had. We would love to go back to Wendy's apartment and to Juan Dolio on a future trip to the Dominican Republic.

Best experience

  • 5 of 5

The property is at a great location: beach right in front of the house, very convenient first floor, swimming pool is the best around the area. The beach is not the best, but it is beautiful and quite. My kids loved to play in the water. There is a very small grocery store nearby---about 5 minutes’ walk. But if you have car, you can drive about 20 minutes to JUMBO, a huge supermarket chain.

Wendy was very helpful. I lost the TV and internet in the morning; she called help and emailed me several times, and brought the services back quickly.

If I really want to find some areas for improvement, I would say that the kitchen needs upgrade. The utensils are kind of old now. Also, the TVs are very small, but who would watch TV if you have beautiful beach in front of you.

Excelente propiedad

  • 5 of 5

Una de las mejores propiedades en que hemos estado mi familia y yo. La renté por mi cumpleaños y pasamos dos días maravillosos. El apartamento es amplio y muy comodo, la vista desde la piscina con el mar y el paisaje en gneral es de ensueño. La atención de los dueños espectacular. Sin lugar a dudas un lugar para repetir.

In Boca Chica, located just 15 minutes driving west from apartment you´ll find tons of activities right on the beach (water sports, horses) located right at the Pier of Hotel Don Juan in Boca Chica (fees apply for spending a 'day pass' and using the watersports of the hotel)

For those with a taste for deep sea fishing:

1) I found this tour operator offering deep sea fishing http://www.dechepatravel.com/dominican-republic/tour/Deep-Sea-Fishing/138

Email or call them and make sure to tell them you will be in JUAN DOLIO, next to Capella Hotel, they should pick you up.

Neptuno Dive is right next door to the apartment by the beach! one wall divide you from them! http://www.neptunodive.com/main.htm

A wonderful excursion that can only happen during the months of Feb-march is whales watching!! The whales come to the warm waters of Caribbean to give birth, this happens in Samana: http://www.colonialtours.com.do/ballenas.htm

Santo Domingo is the capital city and has world class malls, bars and restaurants, is pretty much like Miami. I have prepared an itinerary for visiting Santo Domingo which you´ll find in the manual. Here´s some info. about Santo Domingo shopping and restaurants:
