|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
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.

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
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.
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.
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.
Although my husband and I have traveled to numerous foreign countries, this was our first time to rent a condo on our own. After researching many sites and looking at all-inclusives, we settled on this property. We were so pleasantly surprised that it was just as advertised and even BETTER! Here are our observations in no special order...
* Good communication - from the moment we made the reservation, we knew the service would be good!
* Fantastic views - the balcony view is the envy of the poor folks staying at the "exclusive" hotels
* Very lovely swimming pool and outdoor areas
* Condo is well-appointed and comfortable,
* Attention has been given to all the little details
* Nice kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils
* Staff is excellent, helpful, and accessible!
* Jean and Andrew (the owners) were not only helpful from beginning to end, but after interacting with locals, we discovered they are well-respected in the community and the condo is known as one of the best in the area
* The staff provided coconuts on request and we greatly enjoyed the authentic meal cooked in our room. It's enough for many meals!
* The unit is air conditioned but we never needed it with such lovely breezes
* You'll love awakening to the ocean sounds and views!
* The full-moon rising on the water is spectacular!
* Perfect spot for peace and quiet. We did not take advantage of the excursions but chose a quiet week to celebrate our 40th. Walking on the beach was an incredible pleasure.
* Check out the many vendors before you make purchases and expect to pay less than the first price offered.
* We enjoyed Seafood Paradise on the beach but there is no sign identifying it... You need to ask around. There is another restaurant just beyond it, that actually provided transportation , right next to the Palms, named something like Caracha Machara
* Do pick up plenty of groceries unless you plan to rent a car and go off on your own.
* You will NOT be disappointed!
THANK YOU friends for sharing your lovely place with us! You were excellent hosts! I hope we get to return!
The condo was as beautiful as was pictured! We worked with several staff and they were very helpful and friendly, they went out of their way to make sure we had everything that we needed. The Beach was clean and un-crowded and we enjoyed the perfect view from the master bedroom and balcony very much! The owners were very gracious and kind and a blessing to work with, we are looking forward to returning and seeing more of the Dominican!
I'm not going to lie, when we drove up to the condo we were terrified. There are several abandoned buildings and overgrown streets on the way in. The building isn't labeled so locating the unit was difficult, plus there was a miscommunication about what day we were checking in, so the staff scurried to get the place set up as we waited awkwardly...but once we were settled, we had a great stay. We called the owner just to clarify that the dates were correct, and she graciously paid for the cook to come prepare a meal for our family (a treat that I highly recommend). The condo is well appointed with comfortable beds, lovely tropical furnishing, spa-like bathroom fixtures and a large patio directly over the beach. Although it rained almost everyday (our trip was in the middle of tropical storm Otto) we still spent a lot of time at the beach which is sandwiched between several resorts...that means that it is groomed regularly and is stunningly beautiful.
There are also several vendors along the beach. They can be quite aggressive (especially when the weather is bad and they have few patrons). Watch out! They pull you into their shops, give you "free" necklaces and then get quite hostile if you don't want to buy anything. We had a shop owner shove items in our hands, demand that we just buy "one small thing to bless his family" and then get really angry when we politely declined. Also, the mini mart down the road does not label their prices, and we found out that there is different and higher price for tourists than there is for locals...we highly recommended taking the drive to downtown Punta Cana to get your groceries.
Overall, we had a great vacation. We are going home with sunburnt skin, relaxed minds and bodies and great memories. We highly recommend this condo for your vacation!
What a great place! 5+ stars!!! We had a fabulous week, very relaxing! The pictures represent the property very well! Wonderful ocean view and the beachfront was perfect. The pool was also great! The owners and management are both great to work with. I hope to go back soon.
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.
Very Private. Spectacular ocean view from living room and master bedroom. Stress-free environment and relaxing. Stroll along the white sand beach in the moonlight or enjoy the infinity pool under the stars.
