We completed a 4 night stay in this property in Juan Dolio with a group of 7 adults & 2 children. By far the outstanding service of LARRY, the property manager, is something that is not common to rental properties. We called him the first day and mentioned a few things that were missing in the kitchen (such as a cutting board, cheese grater), and within a few hours he was at the house with the items we were needing. This happened multiple times, so I have much confidence that Larry would resolve any issues you might have as well. We would return to this property.
The house has a wonderful amount of space, boasting 3 full bathrooms and a half bath as well.
The living room furniture easily seated 6 people on a typical Dominican style living room set.
The dining and kitchen set was complete for 6 people.
Queen sized beds in most bedrooms, with a King sized mattress in the master bedroom. All the mattresses were very comfortable, with pillows that were very comfortable as well.
A/C units are strong enough to keep the entire first floor cool and A/C units in the 4 of 5 bedrooms were strong as well.
TVs are older models, but the satellite package that is offered is very complete - over 200 channels with a variety of English and Spanish channels - offering feeds from NBC, ABC and CBS, as well as CNN in English.
The Farmacia Carol is a nice offering on site which carries many of the staple pantry foods, lunch meat and cheese, and things like toilet paper, disposable goods, etc. Prices are quite a bit elevated, but at least it's available.
A nice BBQ area with a lot of space for grilling.
The pool is a great asset to have on hot summer days. The beach is accessible by a 15 minute walk and is public access - so there aren't many bathrooms available or amenities of a private beach.
There is space for 10 people to sleep (in shared beds), however the 5th bedroom is very hot because it does not yet have A/C and we did not use it. The manager said that this room is currently being remodeled and will have A/C in the future.
The property itself is an older property that is being brought up to more modern standards - it's age is seen in older fixtures in the bathroom and kitchen. All fixtures are functioning, but they are old.
Kitchen is equipped with a random assortment of plates, bowls, cups, mugs - as if the collection has been built over a few years, and not purchased in sets.
Internet does not reach upstairs.
Thank you, Larry!
