About Laurina Holte

We are a retired couple who fell in love with Punta Cana, and after an extensive search found Villa Mare. We immediately decided that this would be where our vacation condo would be. We now have three condos in Villa Mare.

Laurina Holte purchased this Condo in 2008

Why Laurina Holte chose Bávaro

This is more like a Villa than a large, multi-family apartment building. It has only 14 units. We liked the perfect location across from the beach, the spacious and beautifully landscaped exterior, the generous size of the units, and the convenience to restaurants & shops and a gym.

What makes this Condo unique

Quite, comfortable first-floor condo with a large terrace to relax on. All windows and terrace doors are secured with iron bars. You can cook in the spacious, well equipped kitchen or walk to nearby restaurants. The beach is 25 meters across the road. Our able administrator will help you select tours, or you may select a tour company from a list which you will find in our condo, along with restaurant information, golf course information, etc. Our administrator is very friendly and is always willing to help our guests. There are no hidden charges.

                                                                  Michael B.Rockford, Illinois

                                                                  Loved the location, extremely close to the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. Laurina, is great to work with and any issues are addressed quickly. The condo has everything you would need for a short or long stay. The grounds are beautiful and the staff there (Wendy) is very helpful and nice. This was our third winter in the DR and I'd have to say this stay was the best.

                                                                  Very Comfortable, Great Location!

                                                                  MICHAEL G.

                                                                  My wife and I stayed at this condo recently (mid-January) and thoroughly enjoyed it. The owner (Laurina) went above and beyond to make sure we had all the information and help we needed to ensure the stay was enjoyable. The place is just as advertised. It is very comfortable, clean and well stocked. It is just a few steps to a nice, sandy beach that goes on for miles. When heading to the beach for a walk, you can take your pick on going to the left or right and then be able to walk for miles along the shore. It is great because either way you go it is a most enjoyable walk and there are shops, restaurants and bars each way if you care to take a break and enjoy some food and drink along with an ocean view. A few minutes (or more) at the pool is also enjoyable in that it is clean, comfortable and away from the busy beach scene. It is also very enjoyable to talk with the other folks staying at the complex to share stories and points of interest, including recommended restaurants. Many are down there for extended stays and can provide some insight into life in the DR. Bars and restaurants are in easy walking distance, and cabs are readily available if needed. We would certainly go back again. Many thanks Laurina for sharing your place with us!

                                                                  You and Cindy are the ideal guests. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo and the surrounding amenities. We hope that you will stay again. We welcome you back.

                                                                  With kind regards,


                                                                  GREAT PLACE TO ENJOY AND RELAX

                                                                  Charlie B.GREEN VALLEY, AZ

                                                                  A very comfortable, secure, and well equiped place to rent. The owner Laurina went out of her way to assure that we were well treated and she lived up to every part of the agreement. The administrator (manager), was equally helpful and professional. The permanent residents (neighbors) were very friendly and helpful. The security guards not only made you feel secure, but they also were helpful. I have nothing negative to say about Villa Mare. I will probably return. Charlie Backman

                                                                  I am happy that you had a wonderful experience while staying at our condo, and the neighbors enjoyed having you there -- had so many nice things to say about you. We look forward to hosting you on your return.

                                                                  Nancy J W.Beulah, North Dakota

                                                                  My husband and I stayed at this beautiful condo for a week before my Nephew's wedding. We we so pleased with how clean and comfortable the condo was. Very safe, The Morning Guard at the gate was so helpful, pleasant and a great singer, Wendy the grounds keeper was very helpful also. Everyone is so friendly and we were pleased that there were a variety of restaurants, convenience stores, etc within walking distance. The beach is right across the street, so white and clean. The water was so warm and comfortable. Great walking along the beach. Very safe.

                                                                  Thank you Laurina for allowing us to stay in your home for a week. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our property! We would love for you to visit again. We are very proud of the condos which we own in Villa Mare, and are happy to have guests like you to enjoy them.

                                                                  Beautiful, quiet & safe two bedroom, two bath condo

                                                                  We had a wonderful time staying at the condo, the grounds keeper Wendy was very helpful with questions and would bring us water when we needed it. The daytime guard was wonderful, would watch the place very closely and would sing while touring the grounds. The public beach is conveniently located right across the street and a large variety of restaurants & convenience stores are all within walking distance. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who asked.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

We take great pride in taking care of all our condos at Villa Mare, and the groundskeeper ensures the grounds, the pool and the osmosis system are well maintained. Please come again.

                                                                  Home away from Home

                                                                  Gemma G.

                                                                  Great Condo! Nice smaller complex, quiet setting compared to a large resort. We enjoyed our two week stay @ Laurina's condo, 4 adults. Great location, right across the street is the beach & there are two small markets within walking distance to get all your groceries that you need. If you want to go to the two larger malls & grocery stores it is very easy to hop on the bus & go whenever you want for 30 pesco's, all kinds of restaurants also within walking distance, no need for a car. Anna was waiting for us when we arrived to let us into the Condo & give us a detailed tour, we contacted Anna with some questions & she replied right away, great to know she is there to help out if you need anything. Appreciated Laurina's immediate response to our questions. Wendy, the maintenance man, and the guard at the gate (can't remember his name) were there around the clock to meet us every time we went in & out of our complex, felt very safe. The Condo has all the supplies that you need, felt like home. The Grill or BBQ was a nice addition to the property, we used it just about every night. The pool was not working when we arrived but after a few days they had it repaired & we used it every day, nice to sit around & visit with the other guests at the complex. The Beach is great & right across the street, easy access, loved it. The condo does feel alittle dark, but that is due to the heavy curtains in the living room, would suggest they be updated along with the sofa in the living room. This place has a huge terrace which we used all the time, would be nice to have a small outdoor table & chairs out there so you could eat outside, & would be nice to have beach chairs. Would definitely recommend this condo & if we return to the Dominican would stay here again. Thanks for everything

                                                                  Owner's Response:
