The listing description was very accurate. We loved the ability to walk 10/15 steps to the listings private beach. We loved the open air kitchen and seating room and this served as the central gathering spot for the entire family of 6 (3 kids, mother-in-law, and my wife and I). We appreciated the daily cleaning, washing towels, and really whatever was needed by Rafalina. The water was always hot and sheets were always clean. The grounds were always kept by Alfonzo that served as the guard and grounds keeper who stayed onsite. Not really sure why we needed a guard because everyone was so nice and we didn't have any issues. Alfonzo also sprayed the property for bugs everyday which helped the "noseeums" stay away. The kids really enjoyed taking him dinner every evening and he too seemed like he looked forward to it. The location is ABSOLUTELY perfect. The house is perfectly situational next to the Blue Island restaurant. This restaurant is owned and managed by the the owners of the house, Carl-Phillpe and Natalie. This restaurant is the BEST restaurant for miles around. My family would eat and drink next door almost everyday. I loved the fact that I could walk next door and lounge around while the staff would bring me just about anything that I wanted. It gave us the experience of being at a resort without all the people. Many times we were the only ones in the entire restaurant. PS the mojitos were fantastic. The other place you MUST go is the pizza place. The best pizza we have ever had and margaritas are fantastic. I can't go without mentioning the people that support this home. Kleiby is your right hand person when you visit Punta Rucia. He will do anything to make your stay more comfortable. From the moment he picks you up from the airport to the second he drops you off he is the go to person for your stay. I would view him as your complete concierge service. Fishing, snorkeling, manatees, walking a remote part of the beach, grocery shopping, local market visits, and whatever you need. He is an amazing person! If you decide to visit... be sure to ask him if it is a good idea to snorkel in high winds... I think not. Out last night we invited Klaiby and Rafalina and their entire family to eat with us. That was the highlight of our trip. They were all very appreciative and warm especially given the language barriers. Lastly, Carle Phillips and Natalie were also fantastic people. My wife accidentally hurt her back and they helped get her medicine.
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was clean.
I was happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This was a nice condo. If we were staying long term we would definitely stay here again. With 3 older kids with us, it did get expensive eating out, so an all inclusive resort would have been better this time. The management group was wonderful! They helped us to get our Wi-fi working, scheduled taxis to and from the airport (and even waited with us for the driver to get there so he knew exactly where to drop us off at). The covered balcony was wonderful to relax and watch the waves of the ocean. The grounds were very well kept. If you use a rental company, Go punta cana real estate is the company to use!
