Amazing vacation rental, perfect for families or surfers
We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers, and didn't want an all inclusive because the teens like their own rooms, we like to cook (one child has food allergies), and we wanted someplace less crowded and noisy. Rod's place was fantastic and he was really helpful. (When we arrived he met us at a grocery store, and then showed us the local sights and best beaches--we rented a car and followed him, though he had offered to pick us up at the airport.)
The condo itself is modern, spacious, and airy. Great view of the beach and pool from the balcony. Fully equipped kitchen (though no dishwasher). Great grill, we used it almost every night. There is also an office where you can book excursions and you can get picked up at the condo.
The pool is pretty and well maintained. And best of all, not crowded (we went over Xmas). There are great chairs by the pool or beach.
The beach by the condo is nice, but Rod showed us a better beach (Macao) a 10 minute drive away. It was unbelievable. We went every day for a week. The kids took surfing lessons and my more experienced husband also surfed (we rented surfboards and boogie boards there, and also bought a boogie board at a nearby store). It is an "excursion" from the resorts but there is no charge and plenty of parking for those in the know. There are some folks trying to sell stuff but we waved them away and they didn't bother us at all.
The place also comes with a cleaning lady 3x a week, who cooks. We had her cook for us and it was delicious. She can come as much or as little as you like.
The supermarket (near the airport, so stock up) had lots of American brands so we were comfortable buying and cooking the food.
Would highly recommend it and hope to be back!
Thanks Sarah and your family, you're welcome to stay with us anytime you want, even though it was the first time we've rented our apartment, everything went as smooth as can be. thanks again and hope to see you very soon
Showed up at 6 am after an overnight flight and nobody was there to let us in. Screwed around in the rain (tropical storm) for 45 minutes or so with our 2 small children and the taxi driver increasing his tab before we finally told taxi driver to find us somewhere else. After driving around for 3 hours and $160 taxi bill and not finding a place we came back and got in. Tried to put passports and cash in the safe that was there but the owner of the apartment texted me back and said the safe was for his own personal use. We didn't need it. Really, he actually said that. We could not use it b/c we didn't need it, but he needed it. Wow! The rain and pooled on the outside deck to about 3 inches on the very slippery and now underwater tile. Not safe for adults let alone kids running around. Went up the stairs to the loft and quickly found out there must not be a code for stairs in the DR. You can't walk on the outside part of the stairs b/c they will tear away from the crappy construction job and you will fall. You basically have to tip to up and keep all your weight on the middle of the stairs. My wife had enough of the place the first day and on day 2 we found somewhere else to go.
Yes reading Alan review on the apartment in Las dunas, Dominican Republic, the reason why nobody was there to let him in is because after talking to Alan back and forth two or three days prior to his check in, he decided to show up 12 hours early, had no way of knowing that he was going to be there,
With regards to the stairs going up to the loft the stairway were a $10,000 upgrade from the stairs that were originally designed for the apartment, the stairs themselves are welded stainless steel with the runners that you step on 3 inch by 12 in Oak steps, not likely going to tear away from the construction of the stairs
After speaking to Alan after a day or so in the apartment, he said that his wife was not happy with the area that they were staying because it was very quiet they wanted a lot more action and other things to do, also asked if you would return our money, I asked him to read the write-up, through home away, quiet living is exactly what this apartment is all about
Perfect place for a family vacation
Beautiful apartment with the beach just steps away and a lovely pool to relax beside. This place had plenty of room for our group of 6. We spent a lot of time on the balcony enjoying the view of the ocean. Everyone was very friendly and helpful including our host Rod and the amazing housekeeper who cooked us a very tasty meal on our first night. There are not many restaurants close by but the kitchen is equipped. We chose to rent a van and pick up groceries on the way. Really glad we had a vehicle to explore the beaches. Use the Waze App for directions. Macao Beach is close by and a definite must. We also drove to the Caribbean Ocean side and took a boat to Saona Island which I would recommend. Great place to vacation.
Thanks again for everything guys, I hope to see you again
Beautiful, relaxing, WONDERFUL place to stay!
The condo amenities had all we needed and the view from balcony was amazing. Rod, the owner, met us at Bavaro San Juan shopping center and took our groceries to condo since our rental car was packed with luggage. He showed us places to eat, shop, and messaged often to make sure all was well and was very helpful. The beach is just steps away from condo and pool was awesome and not swarming with people - pretty much had beach to myself each day and security was around all the time, but we had no peddlers around like the larger resorts do. For excursion reservations, Marcia is the BEST! We did Samana whale watching (saw 2 whales!) that included lunch and horseback riding to waterfalls and our girls (22 and 25 yrs old) did swimming with dolphins. We drove to Domincus beach to snorkel and swim, and I highly recommend Pirate Factory Rum (near Bavaro San Juan Shopping Center). We had a wonderful time and would definitely reserve this condo again on a return visit...great value and excellent service!
