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..."

really lovely place

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely property. The proximity to the beach and the ease of access from the living space to the pool and from the pool to the beach is ideal. The guys who provide security and services were very kind and effective. The apartment is bright and airy and well equipped.

Previous reviews as well as people in town advised against traveling by foot along the road that leads from town to the residence at night which is inconvenient and limiting. I will add that the few times that we did walk along that road at night nothing happened.

We did find the apartment a bit musty initially but that the must went away pretty quickly when the shades were open allowing for light, and fresh air. I mention this not to discourage people, but to assure them that if they find the place musty at first not to worry.

Communication with Wendy was smooth.

This is a really nice place to stay, family friendly, beautiful, relaxing and well located.

Owner's Response: Thank you for having taken the time to review our lovely property. I know you guys enjoyed your stay a lot as you told me over the phone. Sometimes it´s so hard for people not finding anything wrong at our piece of paradise that they have to give a 4 star review (like the teachers at the university...) so I understand your 4 star review ; )

Great apartment on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Could not ask for a better spot. Spectacular views of the infinity pool and beach. This is a first floor apartment that is merely steps from the pool. Spacious 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath, full kitchen and large balcony to enjoy the views. Just a few minutes walk to restaurants and grocery store. The owner Wendy was very nice and a pleasure to work with. The onsite building superintendent Pedro was very helpful and will assist with things like bottled water purchases and trash disposal. Apartment complex is gated and has 24 hour security guards that are very friendly. The WiFi was also important to us to keep up with online classes. I have stayed in other locations in Juan Dolió where the WiFi was spotty at best but Wendy's apartment has exceptional service that even extended out to the pool area. This apartment was the perfect size and location that my family was looking for. Will definitely stay again.

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.

JUAN DOLIO
Car: recommended

Juan Dolio, is a lovely small beach town for those who seek a quiet vacation by the beach with the comforts of home. Nearby you´ll find:

GOLF:

Located within 5-10 minutes drive we have: two golf courses (Metro Country Club and Guavaberry Country Club),

WATER PARK WATER SPORTS :

We have a water park called Los Delfines located just 5 minutes drive west from apartment...check it out!!

CAVE EXPLORING:

The impressive 'Cave of wonders' that goes down almost 800 meters

WATER SPORTS:

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

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.

2) At the Pier of Hotel Don Juan in Boca Chica (15 minutes drive west from the apartment) call the hotel beforehand and ask them how you can arrange a fishing day or other water sports...I know they offer 'day pass' They have a lot of water sports, please call them directly

3) Directly in Casa de Campo, 45 minutes drive east from apartment. A bit expensive...but please call so they can inform you.

For those interested in Scuba diving:

Neptuno Dive is right next door to the apartment by the beach! one wall divide you from them!

Also, guests would take tours to go to Puerto Plata, to visit wonderful 'Ocean World' to swim with Dolphins! :

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:

CAPITAL CITY TOUR:

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:

World class stores in Santo Domingo are located at: AGORA MALL, GALERIA 360, SAMBIL SANTO DOMINGO, BLUE MALL.
