Overview

About the property

Condo 2 Bedrooms + Sofa Bed, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6. The view? You won't believe it

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 (1,722 square foot) 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 our on-site manager can 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. You can choose to have a meal delivered or your own on-site concierge can 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 (and there are delicious leftovers!).

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. Our on-site concierge is available to assist with all of your booking needs. She knows the area well and speaks fluent English. You will also be working directly with us, the owners (Andrew and Jean). 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, the on-site property staff is available to help with any questions you might have. Of course, we will always be on hand to assist as well.

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.

About Jean and Andrew

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

Why Jean and Andrew chose Uvero Alto

We chose this property after looking at many properties in the area. This condo kept calling us back time after time. We had to listen and, ultimately, 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 hands down, and that's just the beginning. We have watched the area blossom over the years & looking back, have absolutely no regrets (only gratitude!). Those are the reasons we bought it and why we love coming back. The other reason is the breathtaking scenery, beauty and friendliness.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing Ocean view, Coconut palms can be seen while you relax on the roomy second floor terrace or take a leisurely stroll on the beach. Good food nearby.

This place has a lovely private beach along with a panoramic view of the mesmerizing, turquoise Ocean. You would never guess it is a popular vacation spot.

The large infinity pool is situated in a lush, fresh environment with lovely views of the beach & Ocean.

Perfect stay, much better than a resort.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Jean's and Andrew's place in Uvero Alto, DR. The condo is perfect, with great view of the beach and everything you need to spend a relaxing vacation. The grounds and pool are kept in perfect shape, and the beach in front of property is awesome. Jean and Andrew's description of the property, beach, etc is dead on, there's no surprises. We were a 7 adults, and spent a spectacular week in comfort. The ladies that cooked for us were fabulous and their dishes delicious. We felt safe walking around making two trips by foot to town, once thru the beach and once thru town, no issues whatsoever. We highly recommend this property and will return soon.

The Cunha Family.

Peace, tranquility and beauty

  • 5 of 5

We cannot rate Jean and Andrew's condo highly enough, they have both been amazing with correspondence and information. The condo is beautifully equipped, the complex is clean, safe and friendly. All the staff are over and above board friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

The view is to die for, the peace and tranquility is amazing what more can you say!!!

Just some tiny things that just a niggle, which is no way Jean and Andrew's fault, they tell you on numerous times to stock up with food if you require on your way to the condo from the airport, where their lovely driver stops at. Of course we did get enough for two days, however as we did not hire a car after then there was no where to purchase food, unfortunately we had to get a taxi back to get more provisions!!! If only we had taken more notice of Jean and Andrew's advice!! I found that the water pressure in the bathroom was poor, but was told that unfortunately due to the hurricane that had just devastated the place previously this was to blame. We had mixed weather the first couple of days, so bear that in mind if travelling in October, as I said now of the above is any reflection on Jean and Andrew's service or condo, just pointers on what to anticipate, we would go back tomorrrow! Thank you for letting us stay!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words & great feedback. We so enjoyed hosting your family & are thrilled you had a lovely vacation (in spite of the sparse provisions). Thank you for bringing the water pressure to our attention as well as for your understanding of the culprit (Hurricane Maria). Fortunately, everything is back to normal. We do try hard to prepare our Guests for what to expect upon arrival. I'm so sorry you were short on provisions. Had I known, I would have directed your attention to a few other options that are in the documentation: Having a local chef brought in to cook an authentic meal (the groceries are purchased for you), having meals delivered, several restaurants within walking distance or purchasing a day pass to one of the all-inclusive resorts, several of which are within walking distance, on the beach. Of course, they don't take the place of stocking up at a grocery store! I hope it was at least an adventure! Many of our Guests do not rent a car; however, if you rent a car, the options are endless. Changes we make are based on valuable feedback such as yours; hence, my documentation will be reviewed and changed so as to make it even clearer what to expect. Again, thank you for the great feedback. You and your family are always welcome!

Simply stunning!

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely amazing property in a dream location - right on the beach and just steps away from a gorgeous infinity pool within lush gardens. Beautiful Balinese beds and ample sun loungers meant finding the perfect spot to relax in the sun was never stressful - such a welcome contrast to All-Inclusive resorts! The condo itself is an absolute 'home from home', beautifully decorated, well equipped and with so many thoughtful extras provided by the wonderful owners, it really does make for the perfect holiday. The whole complex is immaculately maintained and felt very safe with discrete and friendly 24-hour security. The airport pick-up & drop-off service (which includes a stop off at a big supermarket on arrival) was absolutely invaluable. We enjoyed home cooked evening meals on the balcony overlooking the ocean...even cooking and clearing away was not a chore thanks to the amazing view! This was our first trip to the Domican Republic and we can't imagine any other location or accommodation ever quite matching up to this.

Perfect vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as described and more! Very thoughtfully pulled together with details included-kitchen has all needed pots/bowl/storage items, beach towels, etc. Condo itself was spacious, clean and comfortable. The beach front area was perfection and most days were spent there. We rented a car to have flexibility for day trips and dinners out. Snorkeling at public beach at Catalonia with dinner at Jellyfish was great. Three of the 5 of us did a day trip to Catalina island (thanks to Marcia for arranging that trip!). Authentic Dominican dinner was delicious with a lot of leftovers. The property is top notch and I highly recommend this to anyone. Andrew and Jean were/are great hosts with the best info for planning a trip. Thank you!

Most Serene Place in Punta Cana

  • 5 of 5

This property is gorgeous and the pictures truly don't do it justice. Every detail is taken care of from airport pickup to excursion planning. Jean and Andrew are fabulous hosts, and Marcia at the Management Office is incredibly helpful and kind.

I had the unfortunate incident of falling & breaking my foot at a restaurant, and Marcia went with us to the medical center so there was no language barrier as we don't speak Spanish. This kind gesture was over and above, as we were at the medical center for several hours.

We have been to Punta Cana 8 times prior to this visit, and we will never stay in a resort again where the crowds, noise and timeshare hunters can seriously ruin your vacation.

This property is literally on a private beach, and most days we were the only family on the beach.

We did rent a car for the week and took advantage of the Dominican meal cooked in the condo, which was delicious and pampering.

Thank you Jean and Andrew for your wonderful hospitality and allowing us to stay in this paradise location. We will return next year!

Owner's Response: We were truly bummed when we heard about your accident. It is quite a testament to you and your family that you were able to find enjoyment in spite of it! I'll pass along your kind words about Marcia and the Mgmt. They were very concerned and wanted to do everything possible to help. Like you, many of our Guests had the all-inclusive resort experience first and came back for a different experience with fewer people and more privacy. Your attitude was amazing and we are thrilled you are coming back!
