About Rebecca Draper

We are a Canadian couple with two young sons who have purchased this condo for a family vacation getaway. We look forward to many years of happy and relaxing times at our condo in Playa Turquesa.

Rebecca Draper purchased this condo in 2010

Why Rebecca Draper chose Bávaro

We love this location because it is a short ride from the airport and because there are so many amenities within walking distance. This allows us to enjoy our vacation to the fullest without having to spend alot of time, money, and energy dealing with transportation issues.

What makes this condo unique

We're so happy we chose a ground floor unit. It is much more convenient just to step off the patio to walk down to the pool or beach rather than having to deal with elevators and walking the whole length of the building just to access our condo. Also, being close to the commercial section of the complex allow us to quickly pop out to the restaurants and the supermarket for our morning cappuccino or any last minute supplies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was great, well furnished and clean. Rebecca, the host, was really nice and helpful and provided us with a lot of information about restaurants and activities in Bavaro and the area. The apartment is situated close to the beach and next to bars, restaurants, and grocery stores. I highly recommend this place, especially if you are looking for a more authentic experience rather than being stuck in a resort :)

Pack Your Ear Plugs!!!

  • 2 of 5

First let me state the positives......the owner was very responsive through the booking process and was very helpful with recommendations of restaurants, grocery stores, making arrangements for transportation to/from the airport and things to do. The property managers on site were very nice and responsive whenever we called them also. The unit was clean and the property overall was kept up nicely. Loved the beach bar.....the food was great and the staff was fabulous. Very close to grocery stores and lots of restaurants within walking distance.

Now for the not so good: The unit is located directly across from the main gate/entrance, very close to the road and bars across the street. There was live music and/or a DJ every night until 3 or 4am. Even with ear plugs I could not sleep. It sounded like the party was in the bedrooms. Then the construction noise started around 7am. It was not the relaxing vacation I needed or wanted. Also, we had to kill what looked like cockroaches every night in the unit. I realize we were in a tropical place and bugs come with the territory, but it was not acceptable to us. This unit is on the ground floor so that might have contributed to the issue.

We have stayed in several condos at Playa Turquesa, this one is by far the best and most comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This condo is well equipped and maintained. Large nicely furnished patio just steps to the pool. Very convenient for shopping and close to many excellent restaurants. Would be ideal for anyone with mobility issues or small children in strollers. Looking forward to returning to this beautiful condo!

Upon our arrival in Punta Cana, we were met by Michael who drove us to Playa Turquesa complex as well as giving us a great tour of the immediate area (which was extremely helpful to gain our bearings). Galya was waiting at the condo with a big infectious smile to show us the condo and answer any questions we may have. Both were extremely friendly and helpful which put us at ease. The condo was very clean and comfortable, perfect for our small family. Being located on the ground floor made me a bit nervous as far as security and noise level, but both of these concerns were quickly put to rest by the plentiful security guards and barely any foot traffic. The condo is mere steps from the 'officina' and the staff were very friendly and eager to help in any way. Both the pool(s) and the grounds were kept clean and we enjoyed sitting poolside under the grass cabana. If there was any negative about the accommodations it would be that we would have liked to be closer to the ocean, it was a bit of a walk to reach the end of the complex to get to the beach....but once you were there it was WORTH it. Plenty of chairs, shade and security staff to insure only residents used the facilities. We will most definitely be returning, and will recommend this condo (and complex in general) to anyone who is interested.

Rebecca, I just want to thank you.....your efficient and quick communication throughout this process allowed us to have a completely hassle free relaxing vacation.

Thanks again!

Great Spring Break vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time visiting Punta Cana, but the other two times we stayed at an all-inclusive resort (without kids). This was a much more laid back, budget friendly vacation. The condo was clean with plenty of space for my husband and I and our two teenage daughters and we always felt very safe. My husband loved the gas grill on the patio. The BAM market right behind the condo was convenient and we really liked the Citrus restaurant and beach bar. The pools were great and always had plenty of chairs available both at the beach and the pool. It was never crowded. The beach is fabulous and we walked for hours in both directions. Everyone we met was very friendly. We would stay at Rebecca's place again and recommend it to others.

All the comforts of home in a beautiful condo resort

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 16 night stay at the condo. This was our second time at Playa Turquesa and we stayed right next door (which was unavailable) last year. Every thing that you read in all the reviews I will agree with 100 %. The location of the complex cannot be beat to get a feel of the culture there, but have the security and amenities of a resort. The condo is well maintained. If we had any problems we called the property manager and they were addressed within hours. Michael and Gayla are a nice and helpful with suggestions and will do everything they can to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. I would suggest if you are going there and have some difficulty sleeping that you take some earplugs or sound machine to use in your bedrooms. The music from the nearby clubs can be really loud at night as well as some of the traffic on the street right outside the complex and may keep you awake or awaken you . Outside of that, I think this condo cannot be beat. The furnishings are very nice, and the master bed is super comfortable with nice linens. I would stay there again if available. Although we are just a couple I liked the roominess that the 2 bedroom gave us and prefer it over the one bedroom where we stayed last year for that reason.

I would stay there again if available for the dates I want.
