Location as well

We have to agree with the excellent reviews others have posted, and are not sure what more there is to say.
The condo is in fact very nice - with cool clean tiles and stone, and all the mod cons. From morning lattes to late night blender drinks, to anything required for meals or snacks, the unit has it. There are 2 TVs with satellite and an iPod docks. You can run the a/c or open windows (all screened, and there are windows facing every direction). The beds and furniture are all modern, comfortable, and stylish; the unit is spacious. One quickly feels very much at home there.
For people who already understand that beach house rental is superior to staying at resorts, one thing I should add regards the location. We rented a car for a week in the middle of our stay, and took the opportunity to look around eastern DR, up the coast to Playa Macao, and down to the massive developments of Cap Cana. In our opinion, Playa Turquesa has the best location of any developments we saw. The others all seemed to require a car to go literally anywhere, except perhaps the beach. A lack of commercial amenities feels lonely and uncivilized. At Playa Turquesa, as noted by others, there are very nice cafes, shops, and a good selection of restaurants nearby, several literally across the road. Picture being able to pop out for a minute and return with pastries from the French bakery, and a bottle of Bailey’s for your coffee from the grocery store because you ran out. I would not even consider another location in the Punta Cana region.
