Villa in Los Corales Bavaro Punta Cana
The Villa is located in a fully-gated resort style beachfront community with 24-hour security. Parking spaces are provided BUT a car is definitely not needed in this walk around community.
50+ recent groups of guests have left very favorable reviews - check them out!
It is our sincere intention to NOT just rent you a wonderful home in a fabulous private beachfront community in a perfect location with tons of inexpensive restaurants. NO! we want to help you plan out an incredible vacation. Hence the hospitality documentation. Please read on.
This is NOT an all inclusive. BUT we have more restaurants than most all inclusives -( 5 within the community and more on the beach in front) Everything is provided! Most people eat breakfast and lunch in and go out for dinners which are very, very reasonably priced.
If you are planning a wedding at any of the following locations - this can be an ideal solution: Los Corales is bordered by Now Larimar, Secrets, Paradisus Bavaro, Melia Tropical & Barceló Bavaro to the immediate right. All are within a 15 minute walk up the white sandy beach.
Los Corales private beach is the envy of Punta Cana. You can enjoy a full service beach with beach chairs and thatched palapa (shade). You can enjoy Spa Quality Massages in private Cabanas here – very relaxing.
Water Sports – All of the water sports are right in front of you on the beach. Pirate Cruise, Spa cruise, Sunset Cruises etc. Parasailing, water skiing, jet skis, speed boats, catamarans, wind sailing, windsurfing, ultra light plane rides, – it’s all here and I will provide you with their websites and contact information.
The pier where most of the day cruisers begin/end is at the edge of our private beach.
There are 6 very nice but affordable restaurants (D’Angelos, Trunco Beach, and El Portioco, a new mexican restaurant, & JOY ) within the community and several more on the beach in front and within a short 15 walk to the right or to the left. ( Hurrican, Tocs, Bali Cana's, Onno's, Captain Cook, Beach Party, Jellyfish, Langosta Roja - to name a few). In addition there are another dozen restaurants within a short 8 minute walk off the beach that offer a grand variety of different cuisines. Some of the top rated restaurants in Punta Cana are located here inside or right outside of our community. I provided detailed information on these restaurants in the hospitality section which automatically unlocks as soon as you book your trip. Interestingly enough, most of these restaurants are VERY inexpensive- (less than $10. For a platter).
I include nightly specials, entertainment options nightly, menus, and even information about hiring our cook, additional maid service, getting fresh caught fish from the fish vender, fresh fruit from the fruit truck, & even professional massages at the house on a massage table for $25. - I did all the research & made the connections so you don't have to.
The community provides its own fitness center - Estudio Fitness where you can have your own personal trainer or join a number of fitness programs. Also El Gym offers short term memberships and has a full complement of exercise equipment.
The natural center is our community Spa which offers traditional Chinese medical treatments which include Massages, Reflexology. Physiotherapy, Acupuncture, on-site or on the beach for your convenience.
Access to the community pool is also provided . It is set in a delightful garden setting about 100 yards from the house.
Plaza El Dorado is a short 5 minute walk away. There you will find 2 well equipped grocery stores, a great bakery, El Gym, a pharmacy, and a wonderful sports bar with nightly entertainment and billiard tables. There is a money exchange here and another in the shopping center next to it.
Plaza Turquesa is across the street from El Dorado . there you will find another 5 great restaurants, an ice cream parlor and another grocery store. The location couldn't be better.
Night Life: ask me – From beach parties to Karaoke to Latin Dancing lessons, to live music to Night Clubs – it’s all here. We don't lack a night life!
Concierge Service: Our driver, can pick you up at the airport for a small fee and take you to San Juan Mall where there is a HUGE grocery store. There you will be able to buy fresh meats, deli items, snack items – whatever food/liquor is needed. Also stop at the ATM at Banco Popular there and get pesos.I recommend 10,000 pesos which is roughly $210. USD. It's the most cost effective way to spend money.
We have a cook who can make wonderful Dominican Style food upon request. She gets excellent reviews. check them out!
We have a cleaner who can do additional cleanings upon request.
Life doesn't get better!
Upon arrival, you will be introduced to the beach attendants & shown the property by our property manager Eugenie. She lives about 100 yards away, and has been a property manager for 12 years. Eugenie, with her slight British accent speaks English, Italian and Spanish. She is very well organised and very responsive to any question, or situation that should arise. In addition, there is the onsite property management office of Los Corales and a team of workers from security guards to housekeepers to plumbers and electricians that are all housed here in Los Corales to be sure your visit here is just what you want it to be. You will be well taken care of!

This impressive residence offers spectacular never ending sunrise to sunset views, including not one, but three large outdoor decks perfect for sun-bathing, relaxing, or enjoying the rooftop Jacuzzi with a friend, or lover. ;-)
There is an extraordinarily good Wi-Fi system in this house. Most Punta Cana rentals share Wi-Fi with many other apartments that degradates to an unusable extent as the users increase. NOT HERE. OURS is dedicated and YOURS alone. Use the BLAZING 24mbps dedicated WIFI system to stream video onto the apple TV or Skype family or friends back home.
You’ll enter the residence via the main balcony where you will delight in the beautiful garden setting that you are immersed in. The two ceiling fans always generate a balmy breeze. People all seem to love to sit in the outdoor living /dining area on this balcony and look at the view, read a book or chat with friends. There is also a large wooden table which seats 8 comfortably and a comfy U shaped sofa. It is a great spot for appetizers or cocktails. It’s also great for coffee and congregating in the morning.

Additional maid service is available daily for a nominal fee.
Lots of high end appliances help you feel like you never left the conveniences of home.

This deck is a popular get away spot during the day to get a little sun. There’s an umbrella in case you don’t. This deck is also great in the evenings. We put 4 rocking chairs here. Once people get in those rocking chairs – they don’t get out for a while. Everyone really loves it.

About Pat Fahy
I live in Philadelhia USA in the spring and summer months. I start to migrate back to Punta Cana in the fall and winter spending about 50% of my time there. I own part of this company and work remotely via the dedicated high speed internet service which goes through out the Villa. I stay there when it is not rented. I have rented numerous apartments in various areas of Punta Cana in the last few years. It has certainly given me an appreciation for the home that I own in that location in that community on that beach. It is simply an extraordinarily good combination.
Pat Fahy purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Pat Fahy chose El Cortecito
I searched for 20 years and visited 30 islands in the Caribbean to find this property. I owned it 10 days after I first saw it (April 2012). I love the stable warm weather. Punta cana temperature range is between 69 - 92 degrees farenheit. I love the 35 miles of white sand beaches and 30+ golf courses. I love the private gated beachfront resort community. It is very beautifully kept by its on-site staff. It is QUIET and peaceful. I love the amenities: Beach Bar for snacks and drinks, 3 restaurants within the community and 3 more on the beach in front. I love the private beach which is the envy of all of Punta Cana with full service lounge chairs waiting for you under a Cana Palapa, I love the Los Corales shopping area just outside the gates of Los Corales Villas with 10 more restaurants, pharmacy, 3 modern grocery stores, sport bar - fun entertainment ( DJ's , Karioke, live singers) Honestly you just cant beat the combination of this location, this beach, this community and this house. That is why I bought the property and I am very happy to find that my guests think so too! If you have any doubts - read the guest book as you walk in the door.
What makes this Villa unique
This is a spacious villa with 5 outdoor balconies. So there is plenty of space to congregate or get away to. Each of the balconies has beautiful views. The dedicated high speed WIFI is much faster and much more reliable than standard Punta Cana WiFi. There are small desks in each of the 3 master bedroom suites so you can do a little work or Skype with family & friends. The rooftop deck features a custom made mahogany bar that is great for cocktails in the evening. There is also a Jacuzzi to relax in. The sun deck above everything is fantastic by day or night. On one side you can watch the people parasailing in the Caribbean sea and on the other side you can see the mountains in the distance. I love the freedom that guests have here. Guests tend to stroll back and forth to the beach from early morning to early evening as individually desired. There are so many restaurants and things to do so close by - it is simply wonderful.

Stay in Los Corales Villa was wonderful!
The property is in a nice gated community, very quiet and beautify kept. Close to a wonderful beach and all the walk to restaurants we ate at were good. The community pool was never packed and a nice alternative to the beach.
The house was spacious for the 6 adults in our group. The kitchen could use some updating, but we didn't go there to cook. We followed Pat's recommendation for keeping the house cool and only used the air conditioner a few times keeping our electric bill down.
Pat, the owner was very helpful from the time we reserved her house to check out. Yves the driver she recommended was the best. All of the people we interacted with were helpful and friendly. I would stay here again if I come back to the DR.
The Kitchen did need some updating and we already replaced the refrigerator and next we plan on replacing the stove. It is fully functional but not as aethetically pleasing as we would like. Toaster Oven/Convection oven Coffe pot, microwave all work fine. we painted.
I am alwys happy to answer questions before during and after your vacation. to me being a host is more than giving you access to a lovely spacious house in a wonderrful location on a great beach. It really is about helping you to plan to have an incredible vacation with your family and friends and create wonderful memories.
Wonderful location, weather and house for a family.
Pat arranged transportation for us so no need for a rental car. Pat was very responsive to our needs. We had a wonderful family vacation.
Thank you Pat for a great vacation destination.
Thank you. Hosting your extended family was a real pleasure.
We worked everything out together. From a grandad's birthday cake to a port a crib for the grandchild born exactly a year before.
It was a great experience !
Nice Big house in a perfect location
We ( 3 adults & 3 kids) had a lovely stay at Pats House in Los Corales. Very nice and safe area with the nice Bavaro-Beach, restaurants and small grocerystores in walkingdistance.
Pat is a very serviceminded host, who listens to your questions/complains and tries to fix it right away.
We can only recommend her 😊.
Isn't this what a good hostess is suppose to do.
Listen to your questions and help you create a wonderful memorable vacation that your family will cherish for many years.
I am so happy that we succeeded!
Perfect for our family wedding!
We had 3 adult couples plus 2 adult children staying for the week and this rental was perfect! We had about 25 people over for a catered rehearsal dinner comfortably. The area is safe and walkable. Restaurants and small mercados were abundant. The Jellyfish Restaurant is close and offers a perfect wedding venue. We had ours at Dreams and wish we had learned about the Jellyfish first! Platinum Shuttled (Henry and Claudio) helped transport people at other resorts to us. Beach is close and beautiful! The unit isn't pretentious but comfortable. Pat is the consummate hostess as well. Loved our time and was sad to say goodbye. Things were very walkable but we did enjoy having a rental car to explore beyond the resort area. We did Saona Island (Living Punta Cana Tours-Salvadore was awesome!). We also had a phenomenal trail ride at Gabi's Ranch. She rides on the beach and a mountain ride. The mountains were gorgeous! Enjoy!
Overall the stay was good.
Property could use some upgrades in the WiFi and the televisions. A couple televisions didn’t work. Louis was very attentive and pleasant. With upgrades, next time I️ could go with 5 stars.
Oh I feel really badly about this. I texted you on the very first day of your vacation to assure your satisfaction but did not hear back. I wish you had replied and told me . I would have talked you through how to fix it.
Perhaps you only logged into 1 wifi system- there are 3 extenders for the wifi because of the concrete walls which are typical of Caribbean housing– instead of logging in separately to all 4 wifi extenders – that instruction is in the hospitality document.
I feel really bad about this because My house has 25MBPS dedicated wifi.
I have never heard of anyone who has wifi that is dedicated to their house alone with speeds anywhere near that - most rentals here in Punta Cana share their wifi with the entire community and the speed is ridiculously slow . My WIFI IS ONE OF MY MAJOR SELLING ADVANTAGES
Also everyone else has only 1 TV with all Spanish programs and I have 4 smart TVs which allow you to get English programming from the USA.
I take pride in offering a far superior rental experience and I was there at the house just before you arrived and everything was working perfectly.
I feel really badly that your experience was not absolutely perfect. I am going to buy another smart TV to put in the 4th bedroom so ever bedroom has a smart TV, It will be installed shortly
Pat Fahy - owner
Great family vacation!
The information packet that Pat provided was great! Eugenie was very prompt responding to questions and minor issues and very helpful.
We are a family of 7 adults and 3 children. The villa was perfect for our family. It was great that each family had their own bathroom. We loved that it was close to the beach and also close to many restaurants. D'Angelos Pizzeria is steps away and delicious! We ate there 2 nights. We enjoyed several nights up on the rooftop deck and the view of the stars was superb!
If you are a big group planning a trip to Punta Cana, this villa is a great place to stay. I would recommend the Dolphin Encounter, the Sea Pro snorkeling excursion that goes to the nurse shark and stingray exhibit, and Monkeyland. All were well worth the money!
Thanks Pat and Eugenie for a very memorable vacation!
