Overview

Punta Cana Condo Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 1 Bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, 2nd floor, Sleeps 4 with sofa-bed

Tropical Tranquility is the name we chose for our condo because it is away from it all. A calming place where Mother Nature comes to rest! If you're looking for natural beauty and serenity, this is where to find it! The destination of “Punta Cana” is generally composed of the several tourist friendly towns, along with many all-inclusive beach resorts. We are located in the peaceful suburban condo complex of White Sands, which is about 3 miles from the often noisy, crowded ‘downtown’ condo complexes. It is quiet, peaceful and the perfect runaway from life.

Open one of sliders onto the very large covered balcony and look out over the stream below while enjoying the gentle ocean breezes. The view from the balcony is to write home about. You can watch for over 21 different species of birds as you look out over the lush tropical setting. You won’t worry about other condo rentals looking into your balcony as our unit faces a retired golf course for ultimate privacy. Sit and relax at the new porch furniture; cook your meal on the gas grill; enjoy a book; smoke a cigarette or cigar; sit by candle light and listen to the sounds of nature. Courtesy local cell phone and wireless internet are yours to use with your personal electronic devices such as iPad or laptop to stay connected to home via facebook and emails. Store your devices and valuables in the high tech electronic laptop safe while you are out and about.

Enjoy new living room furniture including new sleeper sofa, as well as dual zone central air conditioning with separate settings for living room/kitchen and for the master bedroom. Or turn on the ceiling fans and open the screened doors to let the warm tropical breezes in. This oversized 1Bedroom/ 2 full bath condo is well equipped with everything you need. Quality finishing materials abound the condo, like the granite counters, marble floors & solid hardwood throughout with a large back balcony accessible from 2 sets of sliders. This condo is located on the second floor and sleeps four.

Our condo is family owned and managed by an English speaking Property Management Company, who are very conscientious of your stay. They will assist you with very personal treatment and are always available to help.

Your 6 minute walk to our private beach is through the clean, safe, well maintained and lighted paved path of the Punta Cana Princess resort. You will not be exposed to stray dogs or street peddlers. Our White Sands private beach is beautiful, wide and full of tropical palm trees you can set under and relax with complementary use of lounging beach chairs. It is no wonder that some of the more upscale resorts are neighboring our beach! Too many water activities to mention.

If you need a change of pace from the beach, our condo is located in the building directly next to the beautiful and recently renovated pool and cabana area. Go ahead and relax on the lounge chairs and be sure to bring your cooler full of drinks and food before going to work on your tan. Here you can move your lounge chair under the large shaded cabana area when you need a break from the tanning.

The nearby towns of Bavaro, Cortecito & Los Corales are the towns with many locally owned businesses just outside the nearby all-inclusive resorts. Other amenities including restaurants, nightclubs, & casinos, the Cocotal Country Golf Club & the Palma Real Mall; home of the Hard Rock Cafe Punta Cana, Outback Steakhouse, a movie theatre, Intl. brand name stores, wine-tapas, sushi, pizza, & tons more are a short (car) drive away! At the new San Juan Shopping Mall you'll find a grand supermarket, several brand name stores, a Pizza Hut, IMAX theatre & more. Public transportation to & from Bavaro, Cortecito & Los Corales is available.

Prepare your own meals and drinks after visiting the local Super Pola grocery store. Sometimes a comfortable air conditioned taxi ride to a local restaurant and home again is what you need to cap off your day. If so, the taxi stand is a short 2 minute walk from your front door. You can also walk next door to an area resort and purchase a buffet dinner for about $20. Since you are a guest of ours at White Sands, these resorts (Punta Cana Princess, Ocean Blue and VIK Resort) allow you to purchase a day or night pass to their facilities for discounted rates.

It is recommended to fly directly into Punta Cana Intl. Airport (PUJ) & prearrange with us transportation with a driver who knows the area well. Most public taxi drivers are expensive and only know where the resorts are & not the names of condo communities.

We have lots of ideas for things to do while you are on holiday. Let us know your interests so we can suggest some tours.

I would go back to this spot. It was quiet, beautiful and well kept. Cindy and Art were very helpful and friendly. We felt entirely at ease here. Most days we had the pool to ourselves. The walk to beach was short and the beach was great. We made use of the nearby resort for a couple of dinners which were excellent. So nice to just spend some peaceful days enjoying this pretty place. If I had to make one suggestion, it would be to add a decent CD player stereo. Otherwise, all our needs were met.

My home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This is indeed a tranquil place in the tropics. All descriptions and pictures are the same in person you will not be disappointed. The property is indeed clean and well maintained.If there is a problem just let the management know they will endeavour to help resolve the problem. They picked me up at the airport and even took me to the grocery store which helped a lot. Your first grocery is always the biggest. If you like to walk then do take a morning or afternoon to walk into town have a look around. Most people speak english I had no problem .The beach is just a sort walk around the road near the Punta Cana Princess.If you are not wanting to cook for a $20 fee you can go into the hotel and have your dinner at the buffet. I hired a taxi and went to Higuey to see the Basilica of La Altagracia there is a tour guide and a small fee but well worth it.After that lunch at Macao Beach for fish. I would recommend this but I also would like to keep it my little secret.

A very beautiful condo in a beautiful setting !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month in this beautiful condo with a beautiful setting. The condo had everything we needed and more. The BBQ on the patio deck was used quite often. It was very clean and spacious and we loved the decor. The close location to the beach was great. What made this the best vacation we ever had was the kind and gracious help we received from Cindy and Art. They were always there to help, answer questions, take us around and give us great tips for places to go and get our amenities. We consider them our new friends. We will definitely be back to the beautiful Island of Dominican Republic. The people of this Island were very friendly and we always felt safe. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

Thank you very much,

Denise and Richard

A nice condo mismanaged complex don't recommend

  • 2 of 5

The unit was very nice and very well equipped. There was nothing missing. It was as described. Cindy and Art were very helpful whenever possible. We had absolutely no complaints with the unit.

BUT

1. We had no water for 2 days, totally unhygienic couldn't flush the toilets. We were never offered an alternative stay until the problem could be fixed.

2. The pool was clean when we arrived but turned green after 4 days. It stayed like that for two and half weeks. It was repaired a week before we left, and started clearing only a few days before we left.

3. The write up said that there were beach chairs at the beach. Unfortunately, there was a dispute between the complexes that use this beach, that left 4 of the complexes including our complex without any chairs. After a couple of weeks without chairs and a huge argument of the managers we got 8 very dirty, sagging lawn chairs for all the complexes to share with the promise that there will be new chairs by Monday. When we left there were no chairs.

4. The unit is called Tropical Tranquility and during the day it truly is very nice and quite. In the evening the partying starts at the nearby resorts, it stops by 11 but then the disco starts and continues until 3 am.

5. A car is highly recommended, although Art and Cindy offer a lift to Bavaro or the store if they are going. It is a 3/4 of an hour walk to Bavaro.

Owner's Response: I am glad these guests enjoyed our condo during their month long stay and felt it was well equipped. Our property manager was in constant contact with them during their stay. 1/2. There was a very bad weather storm that occurred during their visit. Two days worth of continuous rain. As luck would have it, during this time the condo association was in the midst of upgrading the electrical wiring at the complex. The Association turned off the power intermittently to assure no electric problems would occur and for general safety. However, problems did occur and the pool became inoperable due to the breaker for the water pumps being burned up and was repaired as timely as possible. Bottled water was always available at the condo for all their needs. 3. As is customary for me, I contacted the guests via email to assure their stay was satisfactory. The beach chair issue was noted and addressed promptly. Usable beach chairs were brought to the beach and available for the guests. Our guests did not like the condition of the chairs and refused to use them. Additionally, more chairs were ordered. 4. Music that is heard in the evening hours is from the sound system of the three neighboring all inclusive resorts. The night music never bothered other guests and this is the first objection to the music we received. When we stay at our condo, we can hear muffled music too but never did it keep us awake at night nor the full time condo residents with families. 5. The taxi stand is directly across the street (with drivers always available) and the closest town is about 1.5 miles away. Many of our guests enjoy the distance away from town. We would have advised renting a car for their needs if their intention was to travel. Our property manager, on numerous occasions asked these guests if they wished a ride to town, which we were told they promptly turned down. I do think that these guests were not satisfied with their island experience and decided to write this review. I did outreach to these guests and discussed these issues prior to posting my response, to understand that the issues noted here are corrected, but sadly there was little common ground found. It is very clear that they were not happy with this experience but decided not to tell us until they got home and received their full security deposit. I am thankful to have this condo in the DR with its imperfections and to be blessed with these types of problems!

01 janvier au 01 mars 2014

  • 4 of 5

We were there from 01 January 2014 to 1 March 2014 , and we loved the little corner of paradise, when we arrived everything was clean , the photos are real , it is a really quiet place, the birds are sung during the day and golf is closed which gives us absolute confidence , the owner is really honest he sends us e -mail to find out if everything is okay but the best people are on site , those who take care of you ( Cindy and Art ) they are amazing , they do everything to make you feel at home, they gave us a tour of extraordinary places. Our fondest memory is when Art and Cindy took us directly to the fisherman bought lobsters freshly caught during the night, it was a delight to cook lobster on new charcoal . The beach is to dream , only 5 minutes walk . I recommende to people without children, I 'd go back one day, but we love traveling around the world and I can tell you that this is one of beautiful places we've seen. Again thank you Kathryn , we will keep beautiful memories in your condo. Paula and Andrew, Canada , Quebec.
