FRONT LINE SPACIOUS 2 BEDROOM CONDO ON PRIVATE QUIET BEACH, FREE WIFI

Punta Cana Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom Front Line Beach Condo

As seen on House Hunters International this true front line unit is right on the beach. If you weren’t relaxing on your spacious, second floor terraza you would be standing in the sand with nothing but palm trees and breaking surf in front of you and a gorgeous infinity pool with spa to the side.

If you enjoy staying at the end of the road in paradise this House Hunters International model unit boasts breathtaking Caribbean vistas with completely unobstructed views. Watch the surf break from your 300 square foot terraza, Living & Dining rooms, Master bedroom and even the kitchen sink! The second floor location, along with full window and door screens, lets you fall asleep surrounded by the sound of waves.

This richly detailed, 1720 square foot unit, has two Master suites. See palm trees from each and every room. Sip cocktails on your 300 square foot private terraza. Most importantly, being truly front line, you will feel the ocean breeze day and night. AC is provided but we believe you will soon fall in love with and prefer the palm tree rustling sea winds.

This exclusive, gated community of only 30 units, has a well cared for private beach so there is no need to stress over finding a beach chaise or a shady spot. 24/7 security means constant peace of mind. In fact, there is nothing to do but endlessly relax. Enjoy your children playing in their own shallow, private pool then later watch a sky full of stars.

Inside you will find a fully equipped apartment with AC, ceiling fans, 2 separate showers, full size washer & dryer, gas stove, oven, fridge, bottled water dispenser, 42” TVs with Cable, DVD/BlueRays, radio/CD player, alarm clocks, security safe, microwave, cookware, fully loaded kitchen and bar dishes, coffee maker, blender, rice cooker, waffle maker, toaster, hair dryers, iron & ironing board, linens, towels/beach towels, children’s sand toys, board games, video, music & book libraries. FREE fiber optic cable WiFi provided inside the unit. Also free WiFi by the pool. Free MagicJack phone calls to USA and Canada.

Experience the scenic 24 mile drive from the Punta Cana airport to Uvero Alto on the new 4 lane highway which makes the drive fast, easy and safe by rental car or arranged pick up to arrive at a place full of comforts and few distractions so much quieter than overcrowded Bavaro yet near to a convenience store, bank, artisan souvenirs, restaurants and a water park. You can choose to never leave the beach or head back toward the casinos and night life if you prefer.

If you are looking for more than lounging with a good book and snorkeling right outside your door the onsite manager can arrange golfing, dolphin swims, boating, fishing, dune buggies, windsurfing, para-sailing, horseback riding, massage, shopping trips and more.

This is a NO Smoking unit.

About Denyse Gantenbein

We are a Canadian and Swiss couple who live in the United States but love to travel whenever we can manage it.

Denyse Gantenbein purchased this condo in 2012

Why Denyse Gantenbein chose Punta Cana

We love the friendly Dominican people. They are always so happy and fun. We have seldom met such consistently nice people in all of our travels.

What makes this condo unique

Las Dunas is small and personalized. Everyone is friendly and social yet it is quiet enough to have the beach or pool all to your self at times.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Late in writing a review, wife and I took our two kids (13 and 16) on spring break. I can't really say anything more about this place than what has already been mentioned, we thought it was great and would go back for sure. This unit sits right on the beach, the beach is perfect, the pool perfect the property well maintained and the unit was just as described.

The only thing I would add is that you are in the DR, not the US/Canada it is a third world country so keep that in mind. I was also advised not to rent a car and attempt to drive while there, I did just that and was glad I did. I will admit that driving in the DR is an adventure, not many rules of the road but the DR people are use to that so it's not a big deal. I would be more worried driving around Chicago any day of the week than I would driving from the airport to this unit.

Stunningly Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
According to our 16 and 20 yr old daughters, "Best family vaca ever!" and our whole family agrees. The condo unit is exactly as advertised and is in impeccable shape and nicely furnished, including the books, games, and toys for the ocean. The location cannot be beaten. The grounds and pool in the complex are beautiful, well maintained, and offer stunning views of the sea from ever angle. This area of Uvero Alto is not yet as heavy developed as Bravaro and Punta Cana making for a very relaxed, quiet stay. We walked up the beach to the Sirenis resort area and it was so crowded we had to pick our way through the beach chairs and people. At Las Dunas, we virtually had the beach to ourselves. There are also guards on site 24/7 who do a great job keeping an eye on the comings and goings at the complex - very safe area. The views from this unit are the best in the complex as it is front and center overlooking the coconut tree lined beach. Angles from the second floor offer the perfect views (third floor units are somewhat obscured by the tree tops).

Rafael and Marcia, on-site mgmt staff, are very helpful and run an excellent operation. Their recommendation for restaurants and activities were spot on.

The beach is beautiful and the Atlantic here is clear and perfect for snorkeling. If wading just watch for the coral and stay to the sandy bottoms. If snorkeling, follow the terrain of the coral to see the most fishes. On one of our outings we found a perfect conch shell on the open sandy bottom in about 12 feet of water. Best free souvenir we could have hoped for.

Just a 5 minute walk down the beach, Seafood Paradise is not to be missed. Freshest seafood you can find anywhere - caught in the early morning, served same day. Prepared and cooked while you sit and relax while taking in the trade winds and ocean views at this thatched-roof, beachside oasis. Be sure and congratulate Rafael, the owner, on becoming a new padre - daughter was born during our visit.

We highly recommend this property to anyone and look forward to returning as soon as possible.

A little slice of Heaven on the beach

  • 5 of 5
Our trip was fantastic in large part to this beautiful rental. The entire family thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the place We have stayed in many places throughout the world but this view and accommodation stands above.

As several of the reviews have said my camera could not adequately capture the beauty. Distance to beach is measured in feet. Any closer and you would be in the water. I would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone who is tired of the same ole same ole of “All Inclusive” resorts.

The rental unit itself is immaculate with all of the modern conveniences. The master bedroom has stunning views. The deck is perfect for morning breakfast, afternoon naps, and an evening glass of wine while listening to the ocean. The beach is pristine and private. With only a few units in the complex it will feel as if you have your own private beach and accompanying pool.

Enjoy!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I have completed our search for the perfect vacation spot! We have visited 6 Caribbean Islands and have never desired to return to one like we do now after staying at Las Dunas. Here's some details of why we feel that way... first the condo is very comfortable. Everything from pillows, linens, and furnishings are top quality. The view is going to leave you breathless. The stay was effortless because we took advantage of all the owners great advice! We visited the local restaurants on the beach and had Virtudes a local lady come and cook for us one night.She was a joy to have in the condo and watching her prepare our dinner. I suggest you have her come at the beginning of your stay because you will have lots of yummy left overs to snack on. Then, Marcia & Rafael who manage Las Dunas were so kind and their ability to speak English helped us on occasions. Our vacation had started in DR 5 days prior with us trying out an all-inclusive for the first time. This was so disappointing, but our vacation ended with the remaining 5 days being perfection. We were so relaxed the entire time. We had our taxi driver stop at the grocery store on the drive from hotel to condo and wait while we got breakfast stuff, alcohol and snacks. Then for our dinners we walked to places on the beach. We went to Seafood Paradise on 2 different occasions and it was incredible. We had lobster, shrimp and fish all fresh caught that day. A little further back off the beach was a mini market and bank which was a convenience. we always felt safe. We only left the area one time and that was to visit Don Lucas cigar, rum, and chocolate tour, which is free and they come to get you. Sweet Marcia can arrange it for you. They have a great selection of gift items and I wish I had known before I purchased some things from beach vendors but it is good to share the love among the locals. Our suitcases were overflowing though! I just have to say that with the kindness of everyone and the wonderful location of this condo it was our best vacation ever. We were there to celebrate our 25 years of marriage and we have taken many vacations over the years. So a big thank you to Denyse (owner) for all the extra care you give to making your guests stay so memorable. Your place is special and you know we will be back!

Owner's Response: Congratulations! 25 years is a wonderful accomplishment and it sounds like you bring joy with you everywhere you go.
The new 'Elysio' restaurant a little further up the beach is worth the scenic beachside walk.

It was as everyone (almost) described...

  • 5 of 5
There are few words, if any, which have not already been used in the positive descriptions of this Condo... and my wife and I fully agree with those reviews... Thank you Denyse for making our stay full and complete! Yes there were a few bumps with the water pressure – but a quick call to the site manager and things were much better for us. The local people made us feel very safe as did the local security onsite. Let's see... the view, the wild horses, the quiet beach, the local cook we hired, the other guests that we occasionally came across, everything was as perfect as could be expect. If you do make the short trek to Macao beach for the day – bring a bit of cash for the restaurant that is in the farthest corner of the beach itself – it looks like a local shanty and is – but I asked for a tour and was satisfied with the cleanliness – it was after all, basically an outdoor BBQ! The fresh fish (caught within minutes or not much more old) was cooked with a local flavor & cannot be described – it must be experienced. Enough babbling... more to the point, my wife and I have been going to all-inclusives for almost 10 years now. This was our first try at this type of trip – condo rental - and my wife's stipulation was she was not to cook... vacation after all... well, after about 2 hours into our two week vacation we are now sold on this type of venue. Denyse had most everything you possibly need – and provided a list of the minor necessities you might want to bring. Personally I brought some of my favorite spices. The only thing I will suggest that the condo could use is a BBQ – propane or charcoal – no matter. Denyse, my apologies for the late post of our trip. Thank you again Denyse for providing us with an excellent place to rest, relax and recharge.

Owner's Response: Thank you. Since your stay in February the complex has installed a new "Water Pressure Tank" and repaired the pumps and cistern. We have replaced our filters and sink aerators, installed a new kitchen tap and a new larger inline hot water heater and 2 new German brand 'Grohe' shower heads that cost over $100 US each.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful location if you like to be outside of the hustle and bustle of things. The place is just as described. We had some trouble with water pressure and hot water but Denyse and Raphael worked quickly to resolve it. They were wonderful to work with and were very concerned that our stay was satisfactory. We went on a day trip with Seavis that took us to Saona island that was wonderful. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a boat trip.The view from the condo was breathtaking and they beach and pool were never too busy. We would stay here again if returning to the Dominican! Thanks for a great vacation, Denyse!!
