Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Uvero Alto - Las Dunas Condominiums

Condo 2 Bedroom + Sofa Bed, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 7

Consider our piece of paradise, your piece of paradise. My name is Jean, and my husband Andrew and we happily invite you to enjoy our quiet, secluded, Caribbean getaway condo nothing like the common tourist resorts and packaged experiences.

As featured on House Hunters International, our roomy second floor condo is perched just above the beach, the ocean's edge murmuring less than three hundred feet from your private terrace. This is the real Caribbean, the real Dominican Republic: casually, easily enchanting. Perfect. Dreamlike. No need for anything loud or over the top. The beach and the breeze are more than enough.

Nevertheless, our apartment is new, tasteful and lovely, with all the comforts you might expect at a high end resort, but without all the people or puffery. It has two delightful master suites, each laid out to best capture the magic the Caribbean delivers day and night. One has a king size bed and the second suite has two queen size beds. The couch pulls out to a comfortable queen size bed.

Wake up in the morning and enjoy a sleepy, unobstructed, unpopulated view of Caribbean paradise. Sleep with your terrace door open and feel the ocean breeze through the screen. Listen to the lulling ocean waves breaking on the beach. Live simply. Dream. Be.

In the evening, enjoy a cocktail on your private terrace. It's wonderfully appointed and roomy, and nobody would blame you for just sleeping there, right above your beach. Relax in a magnificent and expansive infinity pool. Gaze at the star-filled sky and take a stroll on the white sand of your private Caribbean beach. By the pool there are comfy lounge chairs, beach lounge chairs and palapas. Everything you could want. Nothing more.

In the daytime, watch your children play in the sand or in the shallow children’s pool. Beach toys are happily provided. Lounge by the pool and sip fresh coconut juice with a view of the beach and Ocean or enjoy your own private indoor Jacuzzi, which magically has a perfect view of your beach.

Whatever time of day you choose to walk out to the beach, you'll never encounter more than a handful of people. You'll never have to jockey to claim a chair for the day or sit chair-to-hair with dozens of tourists. This private, groomed, palm-topped beach is wonderfully your own.

The condo is a 20-30 minute, scenic ride from the airport, away from the hustle and bustle of Bavaro - but close enough to drive. Or you can phone our on-site manager and arrange an airport pick up and rental car at competitive rates. Alternatively, you can take a taxi in the evening if you want to go to a club or casino.

This is a gated community with 24/7 security ensuring privacy and safety. Regardless of how you get there, you will be warmly greeted!

From your door, you're within walking distance of 2 local restaurants, 2 gift shops filled with works from local artisans, and you are right around the corner from a convenience store with groceries and ATM. Your own on-site concierge can also arrange for authentic food to be cooked in your kitchen by a local chef at a very reasonable price. It's an experience you'll never forget.

The apartment has everything you could want: 600 thread-count linens, spa-quality towels, free, high speed internet access, a phone available with free calls to the US and Canada, a cell phone with $20US prepaid minutes that you can travel with, stereo/CD player, ipod port, DVD, large flat screen TV, DVR, a fully equipped kitchen, water dispenser and door-to-door delivery of bottled water, dishwasher, washer and dryer, microwave, convection oven, George Foreman grill outside and inside, games, cards, books, and much more.

And if you start to think you might just melt away for over-relaxation, all manner of activities can be arranged on-site: golfing, snorkeling, dune buggies, massage, windsurfing, glass bottom boat, para-sailing, fishing, ultra-lite flights, horseback riding on the beach, 4-wheeling, swimming with dolphins, a trip to a large and brand new supermarket, shopping trips and more. ??You will be dealing directly with us, the owners (Andrew and Jean), for all of your booking needs. We have enjoyed the condo many times and are happily prepared to answer any of your questions. Whatever we cannot answer, we will quickly find the answer.

Once you arrive at the condo, we'll be available to help with any questions you might have, as will our on-site property manager.

We'd love for you to experience and enjoy the real Caribbean the way that we do, and we've done everything possible to create a space where that can't help but happen. So hurry down. We promise: you'll never be the same.

About Jean and Andrew

We are the condo owners, live in Texas and are excited to share our beautiful, comfortable, magical place with you. We took our time furnishing this condo and focused on the small details that make it extra comfortable like pillows, beds, towels, etc. We have stayed in it many times and have furnished it based on our own needs during rain and shine. We love to cook so the kitchen is furnished with state of the art appliances and most everything you need to cook a delicious meal. We have traveled all over the world and this place continues to call us back. We hope you enjoy it!

Jean and Andrew purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jean and Andrew chose Punta Cana

We chose this property after looking at many properties in this area. We kept coming back to this condo and just fell in love with it. It is a magical place to unwind and relax. Since we are worldwide travelers, we have had the opportunity to compare it with lots of other places. On a scale from 1 to 10, it is a 10 and that is part of the reason we bought it and love coming back. The other reason is the breathtaking scenery, beauty and friendliness.

What makes this condo unique

Relaxing, Private, People very friendly, Directly on white sand beach,Beautiful ocean view, coconut palms can be seen while you relax on the second floor terrace or walk on the beach. Good food nearby. A book in the condo lays out where to eat & what to do to choose from. A 'real' vacation for singles, marrieds or families.

This place has a private beach which is unusual for a popular vacation spot. There is a panoramic view of the turquoise ocean. Fully equipped apartment - kitchen with state of the art appliances, washer & dryer, big rooms decorated with real wood furniture and with an eye for detail. We loved the large, clean & beautiful infinity pool and hot tub in a colorful and fresh environment. Living room has comfortable couches as well as a comfortable & unusual 'cow chair' and ottoman since the owners are from Texas. A large flat screen TV is provided as well as a DVR, iPod speakers, telephone, internet, books and games. Buckets & scoops are provided for children to build sand castles. Master bath has large jacuzzi. Owners have stayed in the apartment many times & have added or changed things based on their own experience and comfort. Good food nearby and fabulous place for a moonlight stroll or early morning walk on the beach. Beautiful, comfortable terrace seating - great for a barbecue or relaxing with a cup of coffee while enjoying the scenery in a private setting.

I HAVE NEVER BEEN TREATED QUITE SO ROYALLY!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time. Thank you for allowing us to lease your home for this past week. The staff here is the very best that I have ever experienced in all of the times that I have rented condos/homes when I vacation. We are not a couple who really likes vacationing in a hotel – I travel a tremendous amount for my job and spend much more time than I care to in them – hallways are one of my least favorite thing ever!

The condo was so very well appointed and a better location would be hard to come by.

The fabulous lady (‘Vita’) who made our dinner in the condo was absolutely magic! The place smelled magnificent and the dinner was truly enough food for more than 3 days….cannot say enough about her. Thank you so much for the recommendation and for having such a wonderful resource.

Thank you again for being a wonderful property owner from the perspective of keeping us informed. We rent condos/homes through VRBO/Home Away for nearly every vacation that we take and have for several years. I have never been treated quite so royally.

We told Marcia that we fully intend to come back – I will keep your contact information. Thank you again.

Best Vacation in a Long Time !!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at Jeans condo with my family. Very relaxing and comfy very acupied with everything we needed. Our view was gorgeous - the palm trees and beach. If I ever go back to the Dominican Republic again I would not hesitate to stay here again. Marcia very helpful and sweet person I ran to her for any questions or concerns. Rafa very helpful and welcoming too . The only thing I do recommen is to rent a car no convenience store close by or super market. Besides that I loved every moment of our stay thank you Jean for opening the doors to your beautiful home. Best vacation in a long time.

A week of Tranquility

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a week (7/3/16 thru 7/10/16) of bliss at Las Dunas. The Condo is quite large with furnishings that are a step above. The location is a bit off the beaten path - but it was exactly what we were looking for. We both work a hectic schedule and were looking for a place to recharge. The condo, the facilities and the location are first class. Its a 30 second stroll to the pool and an extra 30 seconds to the beach. The beach is pristine and secluded.

It takes a day or two to get accustomed to the use of bottled water - but you quickly get past it. We did have the traditional dinner prepared for us and highly recommend it. Do not waste your time and money at the Hard Rock. The seafood paradise place was just OK. We went to dinner at "Jellyfish". It was the finest meal and setting we've experienced in recent memory. Sorry we did not discover it sooner. The Grocery shopping is a must as I mentioned the location as being off the beaten path. Jean & Andrew were very helpful and accommodating. We have intentions of returning.

Owner's Response: Hi Bill - I am glad that you and your wife had a good time and would consider coming back. You would certainly be welcome. Andrew and I both enjoyed your fantastic stories! Yes, it is unfortunate that the tap water on the entire Island is not safe. That was also an issue with me in the beginning but now I think it is part of the charm. Please do come back! Jean

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Jean & Andrew's condo is the perfect place to get away from it all and relax in paradise. The pictures are accurate...the view is breathtaking and the condo is wonderful. The complex in Uvero Alto is amazing..it is away from the craziness of the Bavaro beach area but still close enough to enjoy all the Dominican Republic has to offer. The condo is such a deal - to have a large 2 bedroom condo with full kitchen, balcony, 2.5 baths, washer/dryer, etc. - all in the privacy of a small condo complex instead of an overpriced hotel with tiny rooms! The beds were very comfortable and the entire condo is furnished nicely with everything you could need. Jean was incredibly responsive and helpful. They sent us tons of information on transportation, activities, restaurants, etc. We did not rent a car but instead paid the complex on-site manager pick us up at airport and take us to the grocery store on the way to condo. We stocked up for the 5 days and never had to leave the condo, which makes for a very relaxing vacation! The pool area and the beach were well taken care of and very private. We will absolutely be going back and recommend Jean & Andrew's condo.

If you are interested in a dune buggy adventure, we would highly recommend the company Fun Buggy. The buggies were way better than the metal pipe frame kind the other companies run. The owner, Kurt, is fantastic and has lived there for 25 years so he shares a lot about the history of the island and its industries (cigars, chocolate, rum, coffee, etc).

Beautiful, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We will never go back to the resorts! It's so much better to have your own place. This apartment is spacious, comfortable, and has everything you need. It is right on the water, very quiet, and the pool is perfect. It has a lovely, large balcony. Jean, Andrew, and the staff at Las Dunas were wonderful. We will be back.

Owner's Response: I am so glad your family had a nice time. Thank you for the kind review. It always makes us happy when our Guests expectations have been met especially when you arrive having already experienced an all-inclusive resort. That pretty much summed it up! As always, you were a pleasure to work with. Thank you! You are welcome back any time!!
