About Francisco Miraval

We are business owners and entrepreneurs, and we volunteer in community oriented projects. We now live part of the year in Punta Cana. When we are not there, we are pleased to share our apartment with international and domestic travelers. We like to relax in the Caribbean and we hope you will also enjoy the hospitality and good times that Punta Cana has to offer.

Francisco Miraval purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Francisco Miraval chose Punta Cana

This apartment is new construction (2015) , fully equipped, business ready, and tastefully decorated. It is conveniently located (about 15 minutes from the international airport and about 20 minutes from public beaches). It has plenty of free parking, it is just two blocks away from local stores, restaurants, and services; and it is 10 minutes away from major commercial centers.

We like the place because we can be anywhere in the Punta Cana area in no more than 30 minutes (with normal traffic) and, therefore, we are not restricted to only one beach or one place.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment, built in 201 5, is in Serena Village, a gated community a few minutes away (10 to 15 minutes) from the international airport and around 20 minutes from local beaches. The complex includes 24/7/365 private security, local bilingual management, two large swimming pools, gazebos and BBQ area, and free transportation (shuttle) to Bavaro Beach or San Juan Mall in the morning, returning to the apartment in the the afternoon. The apartment is business travel ready, that is, it includes an iron and an iron board, hair dryer, smoke and CO2 detector, fire extinguisher, and basic Internet/wi-fi access. (If you need to buy additional Internet access, just let us know). Also, electricity is included (normal use.) The place is ready for you and yours to enjoy a good time at a tropical paradise.

Great Service!

  • 5 of 5

Francisco's property met the requirements for our stay and was advertised as listed. Our flight got re-booked and we ended up arriving a day later than expected. Both Francisco's (owner and property manager) were very accommodating and we got reimbursed for the night we did not spend there. When we made it to the DR, we got a little lost and were in contact with Francisco the property manager. He saved the day and came to where we were so we could follow him to the property. We were very appreciative of his kind gesture. Upon arrival to the property, Francisco unloaded all of our belongings, took our children out of their car seats, and brought everything upstairs. We were given a tour of the rental and Francisco offered to give us a tour of the surrounding area. He took us to the local grocery store (Jumbo) and pointed out restaurants along the way. Francisco is more than willing to be your tour guide for the duration of your stay. Both Francisco's were very easy to talk to, kind, and always available to help. The grounds overall are very well maintained and the pool was very clean and refreshing. We recommend this property.

Great experience

  • 4 of 5

I totally enjoyed my stay at Francisco's apartment. It had everything I needed for cooking,the a/c and wifi worked great. The only issue I had was that it wasn't that close to anything. But once I rented a car it was no problem. The real gem was meeting his manager Francisco (same name different guy). Francisco took me everywhere I wanted to go and a lot of places I wasn't aware of at all. Which made for a great trip. I felt like I got to see and learn about the island in a way I never would have without him! I enjoyed meeting some of his family and will always think of the time I spent with them with fond memories.

Perfect Option out of the resort!

  • 5 of 5

If you don't want the exorbitant cost of the AI resorts this is definitely the way to go. The apartment was exactly as described and super safe. Francisco Miraval is an excellent host. He is very quick to respond and offers great advice and suggestions! There is a small device in the apt that you can carry with you everywhere which provides free WiFi (so don't pay for one from the rental car company). We bought beach toys and left them in the closet for other kids to play. There is a free shuttle bus that takes you to Jellyfish beach, which is superb but we had a car so we did not use it. You can park your car at the end of the road anywhere along and use the restaurant lounge chairs and umbrellas (buying a beer or water bottles from them is kind of expected but not forced.) Francisco's Sidekick, which happens to be another Francisco, is a native Dominican that makes sure the apartment is ready for you but he can also literally do anything for you; Grab water, drive you around, help with the groceries, babysit, etc.. If he offers you to Visit to his home town in Anamuya please say yes! Let him cook for you and take you down to the cascadas where you can meet the "behind the scene" DR. It's a 40 minutes drive toward the beautiful mountains!

The swimming Pools are gorgeous, clean and illuminate at night, which the kids thought was so cool! Outside is Veron, you can drive 3 minutes to get "Bon" ice cream and try Dominican Food and the many dance clubs. This was and amazing trip and not having to worry about our stay at this apartment was priceless. Thank you to both Franciscos :)

Owner's Response: It was truly a pleasure to have Catherine and her family at our apartment in Punta Cana. And we sincerely appreciate her kind words in the review. It is important to know that good communication before and during her stay was a key element to properly prepare for her visit. As Catherine mentions, our apartment includes wi-fi, free shuttle to/from the beaches and a shopping mall, two swimming pools, and other amenities. But we focus more than anything on people having a good experience. We are happy Catherine and her kids did enjoy the stay. Our sincere gratitude to her. Finally, yes, there is another aspect of the DR (away from the resorts) you can also enjoy and visit when you stay with us, Thanks, Catherine, for mentioning that,

Serena Village is a clean, new, and safe apartment complex. It is a nice family oriented environment, with easy access to the airport, beaches, and shopping centers. It is walking distance from local distances and close to a hospital and pharmacy. Even so, the environment is quiet and peaceful, with a mix of both local and international residents.
