About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8. PRICED IN US$. Sea and marina views

PHOTOGRAPHS ALL TAKEN NOV 2017 Over 3000 sq ft one of the largest condos with 3 spacious bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, all luxuriously furnished. LARGE TERRACE. Patio furniture to enjoy lounging and dining outside. Gated access directly to poolside, private beach and gardens. Every attention to detail to ensure a luxurious and special holiday. VIP meet and greet directly from your plane, through immigration to awaiting luxury car, via local super market to the door of your holiday home. Personalised holiday tours, sports and recreational itinerary. Daily maid service when using 3 bedrooms. Professional chef to come to the condo to cook to your personal taste. Enjoy traditional Spanish paella, French cuisine or local caught fish cooked in your own home. We purposely chose imported European furniture as the heavy wood furniture more commonly used tends to be not comfortable and looks less than fresh after a very short period of time. We have given the Caribbean flavor by adding lots of colorful local art. Particularly advantageous is the peace and quiet of this location. The poolside attendants will provide a cushion for your sun bed. The beach is totally private and there are no vendors pestering you, this happens all the time at other locations including the most exclusive hotels. Don’t confuse quality with other nearby locations. PUNTA PALMERA half left as a building site, very little beach area and unkept. FISHING LODGE and ALSOL no beach area, 45 min walk to AQUAMARINA side. SOTOGRANDE CAP CANA half is Alsol controlled all inclusive and out on a limb. GOLDEN BEAR may have sea views but nowhere near the beach. ALL INCLUSIVES are fine for teenagers or 20s but do you really want poor quality food, substandard drinks, kids drinking shots in the pool for hours at a time getting drunk. Our condo is for families and adults wanting a quality, tranquil beach holiday with luxury, security and peace. If you book in advance we will remain in contact with you before and during your holiday, always available to answer any queries. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like, we are here to ensure your holiday with us is the best yet! Communication is the key!

About James & Sandra

Living in southern Spain and travel all over the world. Found this bit of paradise some years ago and love coming back time and time again. The children love the freedom that the security at Cap Cana gives them. Scape Park and their VIP Beach at Juanillo provide great entertainment for all the family, including assorted water sports, zip lines, dune buggy rides, nature trails, cycle hikes etc. Our children have so many friends from Cap Cana which they keep in contact with on Facebook. The weather is always a comfortable heat and Cap Cana in particular has very few poor weather days in a year. Put simply we find it a perfect holiday spot. The main words to describe are safe, secure and private. This is a quiet location.

James & Sandra purchased this condo in 2010

Why James & Sandra chose Cap Cana

Direct access with no lifts and no stairs was a criteria not only for small children but thinking of adults wanting to return to the condo throughout the day for a drink, a meal, a book etc. Being able to walk out at night safely and not to far in high heals to go out for dinner. Teens being able to just go to the nightclub without being worried about their security. Luxurious facilities including the gym, golf, spa etc. Lovely shopping malls with all excellent brands and quality. Just a short 5 minute drive from the International Punta Cana airport. This airport is connected with many major cities in the US, direct flights from South American continent and fabulous connections from all over Europe. PRIVATE BEACH FACILITIES, no sellers!

What makes this condo unique

Totally unique is that only our ground floor condo has direct access to the beach from the terrace and water views (marina and beach) from every room. I loved decorating the property with a modern look importing most of the furniture from Europe. Having experience of renting out other properties I knew how important the little additions are like proper hairdryers, safes for valuables, good size walkin showers (unique to our property), plenty of cutlery, glass wear and crockery so you don't have to keep washing up. We offer hotel like service with daily cleaning, cook assistant, concierge service. Everything for you to truly enjoy a relaxing and luxurious holiday. The condo has all details of where to eat, where to visit, all sporting facilities, beauty parlour etc. There is something for everyone at Cap Cana.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I would absolutely recommend your lovely condo to future travelers. All six of us were very comfortable. You were so wonderful to work with and everything was just as promised.

Just perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything my family and I wanted and needed from a pool in the front yard, ocean only steps away, security, beautiful sunrises, restaurants within walking distance, parking spot for our car... and so much more!! Sandra was more than helpful throughout our stay and helped us coordinate cleanings and private dinners. We would come back here in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: And we would love to have you guys back soon! I really love it when I hear people like yourselves making the most of our place and the surrounding areas. Hearing that you took a trip to Saona as well as a visit to Santo Domingo really is wonderful! You arrived just days after the hurrican Irma had devastated neighbouring islands, I am so pleased that it didnt affect our side of the island at all and you were able to enjoy it all to the full! Look forward to your next booking! Thanks for being such great guests!. Sandra.

Great views, Good potential but few hiccups 3.5 stars

  • 3 of 5

The owners of this VRBO were very helpful before our stay in Cap Cana and assisted us in the VIP service from the airport (you are greeted outside the airport - not inside as advertised) to Supermarket and to the rental. When we arrived at the lobby it took over 30 minutes to get a key as no-one had called in ahead of time, the lobby or I couldn't get ahold of Edward or the owners but I finally convinced the worker at the front with an email showing my email confirmation from I recommend renting a car as this rental is on a very quiet side of Cap Cana and only 2 restaurants are in walking distance. Taxis can be used for the Cap Cana area for a very small fee but I would have preferred to have my own vehicle.

Rida was wonderful coming in at 9 am for us and making breakfast and cleaning quickly - She stays as long as needed but we only requested her for couple hours.

The patio doors to the beach/pool didn't lock correctly and could be opened very easily from the outside. This meant I had to have our valuables with me at all times, they say it's very safe but not taking chances with passports and cash. I told Edward but they were unable to fix the doors before we left so even though we had a 3 bedroom place both my kids slept with me... In another country safety is of the upmost importance and it isn't good enough to be told it's safe, doors should lock, period.

This is my first VRBO experience so wasn't sure what to expect. None of the bathrooms had any hand soaps, there are plenty of towels though so don't waste the luggage space. Be prepared to pick up soaps for 4 bathrooms if you plan on washing hands. Also, pick up toilet paper, napkins and paper towels, trash bags etc...(all necessities)

We also had the owners schedule a photo shoot/commercial on the patio during our stay which was odd and we were assured no one would enter the rental and Rida would be there during. Not sure if they entered but am sure Rida was not there and the patio was in disarray and left for us to clean up. For a luxury rental night I expected more. Besides all the hiccups - location was beautiful, beach stunning, pools were great and apartment was clean. The people of DR are wonderful, happy and very helpful. Would return to this beautiful island, not sure as VRBO

Owner's Response: I am really saddened to receive this review and first of all please accept my apologies. I will of course address all these issues with the relevant people. I am always keen and request all our visitors to make sure they download whatsapp and make sure that not only do you have direct and immediate contact with me but also with Rida and Edward. Unfortunately, you are one of the few if not only visitors that did not do this so I was unable to contact you or visa versa. I am particularly horrified to hear about the disturbance of the photoshoot which I only agreed to as I was assured that you were happy with it. I would not have allowed this if I had known you were not in agreement. We did not receive fees for this and certainly it was not in my interest to upset you over that. Again had we been able to be in contact then I could have made sure that did not go ahead. The doors have been fixed and all new locks put on. We do have a fixed safe for your valuables. I understand the locks on the childrens bedroom worked fine so there was no need in this very secure location for your children to sleep with you. I do apologise but wonder why you didnt complain to me at the time so I could ensure immediate repair. I did not receive any communication from you even by email during your visit nor after. I can only apologise and assure all our future visitors that every point in this review will be looked into and put right in future. I dont mind receiving criticism but I do ask that we be told immediately so that we can put things right to ensure a perfect holiday. Holidays are important and it is our endeavour to create the perfect holiday.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Sandra was so helpful ahead of our stay helping me plan events and restaurants around my mother's birthday celebrations.

The apartment is very spacious and each large bedroom has full ensuite and TV. There is also a cloakroom. The kitchen was pretty well equipped. The view is fantastic and easy access from the patio gate to the pool and beach beyond. API bar a 3 minute walk although occasionally the bar staff come by on bikes to take drinks orders.

Rida, the cleaner was very efficient. The Aquamarina were friendly and generally helpful.

Even at peak New Year it was not that busy and after three days it was very quiet again. Just a shame that there are no restaurants open the the marina area- I guess there are not enough visitors to make opening commercially viable. We enjoyed meals at La Palapa, La Mona, Blue Marlin and the Spanish restaurant at Sanctuary Town. We also hired a chef one evening who cooked for us which was a novel experience and very tasty.

We hope to return in the not to distant future. Thanks very much.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review and I was pleased to be able make your birthday celebrations extra special for your mum. The marina is due to open two new restaurants this year. I guess the manana syndrome has set in and sadly they didn’t open before Christmas as planned. I too hope they open soon, but there are a total of 35 restaurants, bars and cafes open in Cap Cana currently so plenty still to visit. The chef has worked well for a number of our visitors and buying fish off the fishermen at the marina dock side is also a great hit. I look forward to welcoming you and your family again soon, Sandra

Wonderful place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cap Cana during the 2017 Christmas break. The unit was lovely but it was the support coming from the owner, Edward, and Rida that made the trip truly outstanding. It you want peace and quiet this place is great and if you want action and fun then this is also great as Cap Cana and overall Punta Cana provide for all of the above. We spent days at the pool and beach and Api's Bar/Grill and we also did a segway eco-tour, took surfing lessons, zip-lined at Scapepark, took a boating excursion as well as went golfing at Punta Espada during our week stay. I highly recommend having Rida come daily to help clean and we really enjoyed having a chef come in for a couple nights when our activities went into the late afternoon. Overall, a beautiful place with lots of to do and outstanding weather. I also enjoyed the work out facility only being 2 doors down from our Aquamarina unit.

We had a great vacation at CapCana. We loved to property. The room was a short distance from the pool. The pool was very private and loved the resort entry. Everyone one was helpful and friendly. The local restaurants were great. Got to know the owner and manager. Can't wait to go back. Weather was warm and tropical just like we liked.

Owner's Response: Dear Denise and super Family! Lovely to have you to stay in our beach front condo and am glad you found everything as expected. Another 5 star review and a family who we look forward to greeting next time. Did you know for any bookings made this month for next year recives a 15 per cent discount, and for returning guests we will match the price given for their visit this year. We definitely look forward to seeing you again soon! API beach just a short stroll from our place is a great hit with many of our guests. Did you know if you catch your own fish they will cook it for you! May be that's one to try next time. Many thanks for taking the time to give us a review. Sandra.

Great for a family stay

  • 4 of 5

Property location can't be beat. There was virtually nobody at the complex so it was extremely quiet, which was great. The pools are fantastic and the beach is beautiful and sandy. The unit is literally steps away from the pool and beach. You will definitely want to hit the large Nacional grocery store, as the restaurant selections are very limited and expensive. Very peaceful, spacious bedrooms and spacious unit with great outdoor seating and dining option as well. The owners were very helpful and responsive and the daily cleaning lady, Rida, was very sweet and will help with all of the kitchen cleanup, laundry, etc. The unit needed a little attention but was in working order. Great experience, we would stay again.

Owner's Response: Dear Nicole, Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write your review, and your constructive mention of small but nevertheless irritating things that required our attention in the apartment, these have now all been attended to, so I hope our next visitors find the place in 5 star condition and we earn a 5 star review which is important to us! I apologise for these not being done before and am glad they were minor enough for you to not mention until your departure. I can appreciate when dining out as a family with children that waterside restaurants can seem expensive especially when compared with home cooked meals. But I think most of the beach restaurants have hamburgers, salads and other light meals for between 8-15 US$. Of course the restaurants in Las Canas (US$3 taxi ride) are cheaper as they are in Punta Cana Village but then you are not on the water's edge. I always find having a mixture of eating out and at home is a good balance. I am pleased that you had a good and relaxing holiday and hope we see you again in the future.
