Golfing - Golfing and more Golfing: A favorite golfing destination of former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H. Bush, the Dominican Republic has become one of the hottest spots to tee-off in the Caribbean, if not the world.

Punta Cana is known for having the most beautiful beach in the world, but a lot of people don’t realize that Punta Cana golf courses are the best in the Caribbean. They are spectacular because of the scenery and because they have tracked down some of the best designers in the world to create them.

Here golfers will find 19 courses with oceanfront fairways and dogleg lefts around swaying coconut palms.

They'll also find courses designed by legends such as Pete Dye, P.B. Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold

Palmer, Robert Trent Jones, Gary Player, Tom Fazio and Nick Faldo to name a few.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to thank you for all you did for us during our stay at Don's apartment. It made our vacation so much smoother. I am grateful you helped me with my bank problems the first day, how you and Vicente took me around to help. Fran had a great time during the snorkeling trip with Vicente. I also think that your BBQ Sunday pool parties are fun and a great way for people in the complex to meet each other.

Don, your apt is wonderful, the view spectacular. It was hard to leave the balcony to go anywhere else. The Stanza Mare complex and beach are the best on the whole Bavaro stretch.

Great Condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the condo and the hospitality of the on-site managers Linda and Vicente. We've rented several HomeAway units in various locations in the past and have never been greeted/treated as we were here. The condo was perfectly as described, and the location is ideal.

Best Vacation!!!

  • 4 of 5

This was my very first visit to the Dominican. My husband brought me here to celebrate my 40th Birthday and I must say we had the most amazing time ever!!! We inquired on several different properties and this was our final selection. This rental is EXACTLY as its listed! Images of the unit, location to the beach, furniture and amenities in the unit were exactly as the images. Don answered ALL my questions with no problem. And believe me, I had a lot of them. The kitchen was stocked with every type of utensil you could imagine! The air conditioning worked great! We were allotted a $50 electrical credit for the unit and only went over $5 which graciously the owner did not make us pay since it was only $5. We ran the unit a good part of the morning, made sure everything was off when leaving, and ran it all throughout the night shutting it down once we woke up which was around 7am. The view is AMAZING! Every morning I sat on the patio reading and praying. And during the evenings when we did not go out for dinner we grilled. The beach is about a 1 minute walk away which was very important to me! LITERALLY ..1 minute...if that! So if you are looking for close proximity, this is the unit for you!!! Plenty of chairs available on the beach. The pool on site was kept very clean and maintained daily. The only thing - the bottom of the pool is chipping so eventually I think the pool should be repaired. There was no evidence of particles floating in the pool. We did not have much interaction with Linda and Vincente during our stay however we did speak with Linda for advice on a few different options for dancing and food and she was great with giving us options. Other than that, we only saw them it passing but they were very friendly and ready to assist however they could. There are great options for food right in walking distance as well as markets so no need to worry about that. Upon arrival we went to the main market in at the San Juan Shopping Center on the way to the condo. Best place for meats and fresh veggies. If you run out of liquor, the market near by will suffice. They are actually cheaper than the market in San Juan. We did go back to the San Juan Market for more meat but caught the GUAGUA ..$1 per person each way..and they drop you off right there. You may have to wait a while for its arrival..between 20 and 30 mins. Overall our Dominican trip was amazing and our stay at Don's rental was the best decision we could have made!!!

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice, clean and in good condition. Absolutely loved the patio furniture. Wonderful location. Close to stores, the market and plenty of restaurants. The beach was fantastic. Lots of palapas available. We never had to rush down in the morning to get a spot. Plenty of umbrellas around the pool when we tore ourselves away from the beach. I would highly recommend this condo to families, it fit our needs perfectly. The property managers Linda and Vincente were available for any inquiries we had and they even arranged for transportation to and from the airport for us! One tip for Canadian travellers - purchase Dominican Pesos from your bank. There is no need to exchange to USD and then into pesos. All in all we had a wonderful family vacation and will be returning to beautiful Dominican Republic again. Thank you Don and Lynette for letting us stay at your wonderful condo.

I'd Give It 10 Stars If I Could!

  • 5 of 5

I really can't rate this place highly enough! Let me start by saying that the place is lovely--well maintained, spacious, nicely decorated. The views are unbeatable, you can see the ocean and the pool. They have wifi, TV, AC, and all the cooking equipment you could need. There are all sorts of stores, restaurants, and bars just down the street. We have 2 young boys, 3 and 5, and there was a nice loft area for them to sleep. The property is a pretty quiet one, so I hope our kids weren't too loud! They definitely had a great time, so it is a family friendly place for sure. Now beyond all that, I want to sincerely thank the owners and the property managers, Linda and Vincent of LVR Tours, for their help, generosity, and graciousness. Our flight home was cancelled due to a snow storm, and they all took very good care of us. It all turned out very well, but it is so nice to know someone has your back during a stressful time.

Wonderful family beach experience

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we hoped for and more. Punts Cana is absolutely beautiful! Dealing with Don in booking it was very easy. The condo was exactly as it was described. It was clean and well kept and completely stocked. The only issue we noticed was the loft area with the 2 twin beds got a little warm (heat rises), but the a/c units worked great! You are allowed an allowance on the electricity and we went over that limit just a little bit but it was totally worth it! There is so much to do just right along the beach there. We swam, shopped, relaxed, ate lunch, enjoyed drinks all within walking distance. There are two great restaurants a 5 minute walk from the condo. DiAngelo's (Italian) and Balicana (Asian fusion). Both had excellent food and beautiful atmospheres, located in a gated neighborhood (Los Corales) that felt very safe! Also about a 5 minute or so walk down the road is a little small grocery store where we picked up a few items we ran out of in the middle of our 10 day vacation, including more mangos!! Vicente Rivera was an amazing host and he set up several excursions for us (zip lining & Saona Island). He took us to Macao beach in his tour jeep, that was jaw-dropping Caribbean gorgeous!! We also swam in a cool, fresh water cave with him that was awesome! It felt so great to have a host who is American but born in D.R. So he speaks the language and knows how to deal with all the people there for you. We truly felt like we made a new friend in Vicente. He is a great guy and was so sweet to us and our kids! We spent time relaxing by the beautifully, clean pool that was never crowded. We also spent plenty of time lounging at the beach. Wish we would have known Spanish because there is very little English spoken there!! If was great of the driver to stop off at the grocery store on the way from the airport to get our groceries. He pushed the basket for us! So cute!! All in all it was an outstanding vacation for our family. I highly recommend it!! If you are looking for beautiful, white sandy beaches and turquoise water, Punta Cana is the place for you!!!! 😊

We rented Don and Lynette’s condo (G-405) between 14 Feb and 15 March 2015, sharing the experience with both friends and family over the duration of our stay. This was also our first experience away from the annual resort visits.

The apartment and complex itself is very clean, well-kept and secure and although we found the loft area for visitors a bit tight for two adults, the availability of the double loungers on the balcony was great and the view was fantastic. The unit has screens on all doors and windows (some do not) and the internet within the unit worked great. Water delivery to the apartment was seamless as was drop off and pick up of the laundry through the complex services.

Linda and Vincent were always available to address any and all concerns within their control and the office at Stanza Mare complex were courteous and responsive to our queries.

Literally steps from the beach, we found it very tranquil and relaxing compared to resort areas on either side of Stanza Mare and although the excursion departure point across the beach is relatively busy it did not take away from our enjoyment and relaxing visits on the beach.

Early morning visits to the beach to secure loungers was a bit inconvenient, however we always managed to attain two to four beach chairs daily. This concern was being addressed the last week of our stay with multiple palapas being built to accommodate additional chairs for Stanza Mare guests.

There area is safe and within walking distance to local stores and restaurants where you can attain all daily requirements including spirits. We were quite comfortable accessing the bus to the larger malls such a Palma Real ……….. where your shopping selections are greater. We would not recommend taking the bus if you plan on doing a lot of shopping as they are relatively small; however cabs are readily available at either mall for the return trip for a reasonable price.

As mentioned above this was our first holiday from the resorts with Don and Linda’s condo at Stanza Mare providing for a great experience. It is definitely one of the best located and maintained within the complex and we highly recommend it to any and all who wish to experience a holiday away from the resorts.

Thanks for the experience Don and Lynette, Linda and Vincent.

Golf: Golfing by JACK NICKLAUS at Punta Espada Golf Club, the first of three Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf

Courses in Cap Cana, is operated by Troon Golf and opened for play in November 2006. The par-72

course incorporates the surrounding natural beauty of Cap Cana, stretching along a coastline where

golfers on each hole look out into the blue expanse of the Caribbean Sea.

Hiring Jack Nicklaus to design three new golf courses was a stroke of genius by the developers of the Cap Cana resort complex in Punta Cana. They have given him his pick of the 46 square miles of real estate that the complex owns. Jack revealed the back 9 of his new course Punta Espada Golf Course to the world in August 2006. The course is a spectacular championship course with almost half its holes playing along or to the Caribbean. My first impression was that of the dramatic coastline and views – my second was of just how green the course is. Jack created the first course in the Dominican Republic entirely with Paspalum grass. Nicklaus says that this grass is the best choice as it is resistant to salt-water, heat and remains incredibly green and lush.

There are other numerous golf courses in close proximity of Stanza Mare:

- El Golf de Bavaro 18 holes par 72 (Barcelo hotels),

- Cocotal 27 holes par 72 (Melia hotels)

- Punta Cana Golf (Club Med, Punta Cana

- Resort & Club, Cabeza de Toro Golf (Catalonia Resort)

- White Sands Golf (Blue Ocean resort)
