About Lynnette Letsky-Piombo
We pride ourselves on customer service. When we found Stanza Mare we knew we found buried treasure in this caribbean island paradise.
Why Lynnette Letsky-Piombo chose Bávaro
We picked this location over other Caribbean locations mainly because of the spectacular private beach and our ocean views... It is truly awesome. We also love the people, they are friendly, helpful and generally very happy. Punta Cana was unlike many other Caribbean destinations we have seen and we have traveled extensively in the Caribbean. The decision to purchase at Stanza Mare was made based on a number of different criteria. The first and most important being the private beach. The private beach is absolutely beautiful and is superior to any other privately owned beach front community in the Bavaro/El Cortecito area of Punta Cana. Some amenities include four great restaurants Italian (D'Angelos), Asian (Balicana), a great toes in the sand beach bar/restaurant (Soles), and Tronco Beach restaurant located just steps from Stanza Mare and from our private beach as well as a Wellness Center/Spa. Very short walking distance from a grocery store,shopping and additional restaurants was also very important in our decision making process. Also located only 15-20 minutes from Punta Cana International airport (PUJ) was a big plus.

We'll be back!
We had such a wonderful time! Linda & Vicente couldn't have been better hosts...they helped with everything we needed. They both speak perfect English, and Spanish. Linda organized our airport transfers, so that was painless. (Lots of guys will try to "help" with your bags, and some are in airport uniforms, but don't slow down for them.) We felt totally safe, and it was easy to get around the area for dining or groceries. Bella Napoli has great gelato and pizza, and everything is good at Citrus Restaurant (but it's a little pricier).
Also, we had a fantastic scuba experience with Piet Van de Ven with Global Divers/Global Dive Academy! He did my son's open water certification, then took the family out for an amazing (and very safe) diving excursion.
Our only small complaint is that it was difficult to cool the condo's loft for my kids (but we do like it very cold at night). It helps if you turn on the a/c early in the evening. We ran the a/c from about 7pm-9am, and only had a $15 electric bill. The condo has everything you need for a wonderful vacation...I already miss having my morning coffee looking out at the beach!
The condo community was safe with excellent security for the residents staying there. Beautiful views from the patio/balcony overlooking the pool and views of beach and ocean. We enjoyed the convenience of near by markets and the fully equipped kitchen for meals. If you're not into cooking, there are plenty of local restaurants just a short walk from condo. Our days were spents at the pool, beach and if you want to explore there are plenty of options. Linda and Vincent (onsite managers) were happy to answer any questions and provide information on excursions, restaurants and nearby entertainment. We enjoyed a night of karaoke at a local bar. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning made the evenings pleasant for sleeping. WIFI available and tv if you want to stay tuned into the news. Or just escape in the Dominican life and enjoy your vacation. Everyone we interacted with from the managers of the condo to the locals in the city were friendly. I would recommend staying at this condo as it met all of our needs plus more than expected!
Relaxing vacation getaway
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo. The furnishings were lovely, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed daily swims in the pool and ocean. The ocean view from the balcony was just like the pictures in the listing!
We also enjoyed exploring restaurants and shopping nearby. There are many restaurant choices within walking distance. We rented a car and explored the area a bit. Met some very friendly and helpful people.
Everything was clean and well kept, with a very nice and available property manager. Would love to stay there again!
Linda and Vicente (the property managers) were amazing in helping us navigate our way in a new country. We had our 7-year-old daughter with us and they made sure the excursions we booked were appropriate and safe. The condo was clean and had a beautiful view of the pool and beach. Two AC units cooled the condo sufficiently and the kitchen had everything needed for cooking. Only bummer was the seaweed on the beach. Ziplining tour and snorkeling were fantastic. Food at neighboring restaurants was good. We enjoyed our stay.
A fabulous getaway
We had a great time, the property managers were incredibly helpful and the condo was perfect. Beach access was the best part
Didn't want to go home!
We are a family of 4 travelling to DR for the first time. We looked into the "all-inclusive" resorts and decided that they wouldn't work for us. We are very happy to have found this condo! This arrangement was perfect for us - so much better than trying to get a hotel suite or adjoining rooms. The kids were comfortable all week using the twin beds in the loft and basically had their own bathroom. We found the master bedroom with it's sliding door out to the covered deck perfect for us. The pictures and description on VRBO are a great representation of the property and condo, but the beach/ocean view is *even better* than in the pictures!
The condo is spotless and well appointed with coffee maker, blender, and full kitchen. We enjoyed having a coffee maker to start each morning with locally grown coffee, and a blender to make our own frozen drinks with the amazing local fruit (don't miss the fruit truck that is parked just outside the front gate nearly every morning!) We also found that the pool side restaurant/bar was great for a quick bite and/or drinks! We did quite a bit of walking to some of the great local restaurants and the markets during our stay and found the area to be very safe - even at night. The Stanza Mare property is continuously manned by security guards at the front gate and the beach, and there is always another guard patrolling the grounds and pool area. We could be found chilling on the private beach or under the palapas for a few hours each day.
Linda & Vicente were phenomenal hosts! From the moment we booked our stay until Vicente dropped us off at the airport at the end of our stay, they went above and beyond to make sure we were informed, comfortable and happy. They were not intrusive at all, yet when we had a question or needed something, they were always very responsive and a delight to work with. We had lots of questions before our stay began, and Linda answered every one of them with a smile that you could feel right through email. Vicente loves to give restaurant recommendations if you ask for them, and when we did, his suggestions were spot on! He also gave us the real "scoop" on many of the excursions so we knew what to expect beyond the marketing hype. We are not particularly fond of party-boat type excursions, so Vicente even arranged a private snorkeling trip for just the four of us!
There is a very laid-back, easy-going vibe that you can't help but become part of before the end of your stay!

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.
