About Theresa Feller

We are a family of four with two young girls, ages 12 & 15, and love spending time at our condo. The beach, ocean and pools have brought our family so many fun memories. We've supplied our condo with everything we could think of to make it so easy to visit!

Theresa Feller purchased this condo in 2009

Why Theresa Feller chose Bávaro

My husband and I bought this condo on our very first visit to Punta Cana. The beaches are majestic, the water turquoise and no buildings taller than the palm trees! It's so natural!

What makes this condo unique

After putting the kiddies to bed we love sharing a drink and staring at the stars on our rooftop balcony! Not many bugs since we're on the fourth floor :-)

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks Theresa! We had a wonderful time in the DR. The weather was sure wonderful. The location of your place is perfect when visiting Punta Cana. The condo is well equipped with everything needed. the beach cart and toys were very nice to have.

One of the boogie board was already destroyed when we got there which I know are not made to last forever.

I wanted to express that the taxi cab Alex was a pleasure to work with. Liz was there to welcome us upon arrival and departure, she made sure that we were set.

Outstanding Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Two of my friends and I traveled to Punta Cana together for the first time. I was a little anxious at first since we didn't go the normal route of an all-inclusive resort. Needless to say by the end of the trip that anxiety was put to rest.

Theresa and Liz, the property manager, were extremely helpful, both willing to answer questions or point you in the right direction.

The condo was very nice and up-to-date and had all the basic necessities and more. The room can get a little warm and humid, but it was livable and much better than anticipated. When there we typically left the windows and doors open that cooled the place down nicely. There was some building repairs going on during our stay and we had a few instances where the water went out, but nothing to lose sleep over. Only other thing to note is that the building is near the back of the complex closer to the restaurants so at night it can get a little loud. Irregardless of these minor things we enjoyed our stay.

The condo is centrally located to grocery stores and restaurants. Citrus, NamNam, Don Pio are great for lunch or dinner. Delia's is a great spot for breakfast. There is also a bakery across from the entrance of the complex that has amazing croissants. If you are up for a walk along the beach Balicana is a nice Asian restaurant to the left of Playa Tuquesa. It wasn't necessary to have a rental car as all of the excursions come with transport, and for all other needs you could coordinate with Alex. I also, wouldn't dream of driving there as traffic laws are more of a suggestion.

We basically spent what we would have spent for an all-inclusive package on eating out various places and excursions.

If you are looking to do any excursions I highly recommend looking into going using the El Tour Caribe travel agency. The owners Lise and Edwar live in Playa Turquesa. Additionally, Julie who works in the office is a great resource. Highly recommend to bring cash to cover excursions to avoid fees. This isn't an issue when dining out and such, as those fees are automatically included, typically 18% city tax + 10% tip. Although, the 10% tip is much of a tip if you use credit card to pay.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this condo for a week starting 07/02/17. It sits a short walk away from the beach but close to its own pool. We were near the Bam Market for alcohol and groceries etc. Right outside the 24 hour guarded gate are many restaurants, pastry shops, a cigar shop, and of course smoothie huts that serve delicious and healthy drinks. Plenty of friendly moped drivers are nearby for easy and affordable lifts. There are some close by bars that serve awesome food and drinks. With our air conditioner on and a fan blowing, we did not hear the nearby entertainment-music as bad as some others have posted. The owners of this condo were fantastic to work with and the decor shows that they really care about their condo. We washed and dried our clothes in this condo as well. When we boarded our plane back to the U.S., we felt like we were truly leaving paradise!!!

Nice Condo, Decent Complex

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a nice experience at Playa Turquesa. The condo is well-maintained and cleaned. One of our surprise favorite features was the balcony hammock. Of note, the credit for AC doesn't get you far. We came in just shy of having to pay an overage fee -- and we didn't use the AC excessively. That said, the condo complex could use some updating. The chairs and cushions were worn and could use a cleaning. But, the real standout of the trip was Liz, the property manager. She was kind, helpful and patient.

Expectations met and more

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the condo along with another couple to celebrate my birthday, what an amazing time we had and the condo provides you with anything that you can possibly need, Theresa has thought of everything and the property manager Liz is the most lovely woman she is amazing and she even bought me a bottle of champagne once she found out it was my birthday. The stay here epitomizes the meaning of "Home Away".

The Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful condo with our 3 and 6 year old boys, and it was the perfect home away from home. Theresa did an amazing job of answering all of our questions while we planned our vacation, arranged transportation to and from the condo from the airport, provided us with priceless tips and advice, as well as having a beautiful condo with everything you need! Liz is such a wonderful person; when we arrived at 2am from 2 long days of traveling with young children she met us with open arms and was such a pleasure. She helped us with everything we needed and is the icing on the cake for this rental. The condo has lots of beach and pool toys and a beach cart, which is perfect for packing all of your items and heading to the beautiful private beach. There were numerous delicious restaurants within walking distance, just plan for a nice relaxing evening and don't be in a hurry. Edwar and Lize live in Turquesa and provide a fun full day snorkeling tour on the Caribbean Sea, which we highly recommend. Thank you Theresa for providing us the perfect place to spend an unforgettable vacation!

Can't Wait to Return

  • 5 of 5

I am not sure that I can add much to what has already been said but I will give it a try. The location of the condo is perfect. It overlooks the 2 nice size salt water pools (unheated) and the complex is on a private beach. In addition, it is easy walking distance to a number of restaurants, a small supermarket, and to a wonderful fruit/smoothie stand right across the street. The condo is roomy particularly given the outside lanai area and then the penthouse area on the rooftop. It had everything we needed and more. We took full advantage of the grill on the lanai as well. We did not rent a car but used Alex when we needed to go somewhere. If you plan any excursions the companies will come and pick you up at the complex so you really don't need a car. Teresa and Liz were both great and ready to answer any questions we had. We had an a/c issue in one of the bedrooms on the day we arrived and Liz had it fixed the next day. Bottled water is available so you don't need to worry about that either. You may not appreciate this but you are on a private beach which has security and which prevents people from bothering you selling you stuff as happens on some of the other beaches. I cannot say enough good things about the condo, Bavarro Beach or the Punta Cana area in general. If you don't know any Spanish you can get by but it is helpful. One tip - the nearest ATM is about a 5 to 10 minute drive so make sure you have enough money as some places don't take credit cards and sometimes the Internet is down so they don't work. Teresa has a safe in the condo which is very helpful. This was a perfect vacation and we plan to return next year to this same unit.
