Terry Absalom purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Terry Absalom chose El Cortecito
This condo is much more than a rental unit. It was our home for more than 5 years. We put a lot of time and energy into making it as welcoming and comfortable as possible. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Spacious and convenient
I stayed at Terry and Jeffrey's condo with 3 other people for a week's long vacation. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms was so convenient, especially when staying with three other women! Although I always bring my own towels and washcloths, there were plenty in the condo for use, as well as a few beach towels. The balconies were also very nice. There is a gas grill available for use, although we did not use it. Our only complaints were that the water pressure was low upstairs and we came on a week when there was a malfunction with the water heater, so we did not have hot water for our stay. There are AC units in each room, which cool down the rooms pretty fast, and do not need to be turned down too low. I had mine on intermittently because the bedroom would get too cold! There are also ceiling fans and standing fans in the condo to help circulate the air.
Jeffrey and Terry are very responsive if there are any issues or questions. There is a property manager, Jose, who also lives in the complex. He was very helpful in figuring out issues as well. Ellis, who works as security and groundskeeper at the complex, was also very helpful in helping us get rides, giving directions, and bringing up water. He also helps us with our bags when we arrived, which was very helpful because we tend to overpack and the condo is located three flights up.
The location was very convenient, however, most of the taxi drivers and excursion drivers are unfamiliar with the location. Luckily, it is next to several major resorts and landmarks. We met our taxis next door at the RD68 hotel because they have a large sign on the front, and it is directly across from the entrance to the beach. I would recommend walking down a little further to Los Corales Village Beach or Bavaro Beach, it is a little nicer than Playa Dona Mathilde, and there is much more space to settle down. Playa Dona Mathilde is in between two resorts, who have security patrolling the beach front, and there is not much room to settle down.
Apartment was truly amazing couldn't ask for anything more! I will def use this apartment again
Great property, Great Location!
My family and I loved this property! We are a famity of 4 and this condo had more than enough space. The kids stayed upstairs where there is a balcony. We sat on the balcony a few nights to talk about the days events and one night caught a fireworks show from a resort on the beach!
The TV room was another end of the day hang out spot for us. It has AC and we enjoyed a movie on the big screen a few nights during our stay. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook.
The market and restaraunts were a short walk from the condo. We even took a taxi to the San Juan mall area were we had lunch and did some grocery shopping at Jumbo, a large grocery store.
The on site manager and maintenence personnel were a valuable resource during our stay, always helpful with anything related to the property and help navigating the area.
Lastly the amazing beaches of Punta Cana! We visited 3 beaches during our stay, all within a quick walk from the condo. The longest walk wasn't over 10 mins. We spent our beach days on Los Corales, Bavaro, and Playa De Matilde.
Overall, this property was in a great location and allowed us to immerse ourselves in the culture while still being on vacation. Book it, you won't be disappointed!
Felt right at home
We really enjoyed our stay at Terry and Jeffrey's place. It's on the 3rd floor, so we took full advantage of opening the balcony door and windows to enjoy the breeze and save money on electricity during the day. (Suggestion: a net on the balcony door would be great, as that's the only place mosquitos can get in easily at night, so we had to close it by late afternoon.)
The condo is comfortable, modern and has most of the essentials we have at home. The property manager, Jose, was very nice and responsive, and so were the owners, whenever we had a question, suggestion or concern.
The beach was just a few minutes away by foot, so we could go on daily walks and swims. The mini-market next door had a few basics for the first morning, but we rented a car, so we got much better prices and selection at Jumbo supermarket 10 min away. We even discovered an amazing Russian massage therapist, Yelena, in the massage spa office next door (part of RD 68 hotel building, separate entrance). Her price was super reasonable and she's got golden hands. Note her English is very minimal, but I am sure you can explain the essentials. If you go, tell her Tatiana is missing her already. :)
If staying in the area again, we'd definitely consider staying here again.
This was perfect for us. Great location and the condo itself was equipped with everything and more.
Will definitely be back!
Really nice apartment (we were 7 people and was big enough for all of us), located close (3min walking) to a nice beach.
We travel around Bavaro, Macao and Bayahimbe and the Beaches were impressive.
Thanks to Jeffrey and Terry about the explanation of how to arrive, was easy thanks to them.
I strongly recommend the apartment
