A quiet, beautiful, well furnished condo
We couldn't have had a more relaxing time. The condo was spacious, very, light and well furnished. Yurbi, our maid, came in six days a week at 8:30 AM, made breakfast, cleaned up last night's dishes, made lunch, with enough leftovers for dinner, clean the apartment, made the beds and did the laundry.
The condo itself was very well-managed; the pool was spotless, as were the common areas. There were a number of good tourist oriented restaurants nearby. My only regret and the only thing I would change is that I would have gone to some of the native restaurants in the area. If you want more traditional, local foods, turn right on the main road, in the direction away from Puerta Plata and head to the village of Maimon. If you have a good local cabdriver, who point out the best places to go.
Thank you so much for a wonderful review. I’m glad everything was great for your relaxing holiday. Yurbi our maid is such a treasure. Thanks again . Johanne
This was a wonderful condo to stay in. It was quiet and very peaceful. Decor is as shown(very nice) and view was gorgeous from our favorite spot..the main balcony where we enjoyed our meals. A little tricky to find initially, but once found..easy to repeat. Yurbi, our maid, was a delight. Kept place spotless. Very friendly and willing to attend to our families needs. Pool was refreshing and empty the entire time of stay. Enjoyed the local attractions in nearby Puerto Plata, and especially enjoyed Playa Sosua and Cabarete (~ 1 hr+ away). Thanks to Johanne for having us on our first trip out of US. Recommend this place to any intersted in staying away from the busy, active town, but not far from Puerto Plata as well.
Thanks Kirk for the kind words. I’m so glad you had a great holiday. Yes our maid is one of a kind. I look forward to you booking another quiet time away from busy life. Johanne
"You need to experience Johanne's hospitality "
My wife Deborah and I are wrapping up the best two weeks we have spent in the Caribbean. This is our first time renting, previously haven always gone all inclusive and are more than happy with our decision to rent this condo. From the start and during our stay Johanne has been hands on to ensure our stay has been care free and as comfortable as possible. The description of her condo on this site and the reviews from other don't begin to do it justice, believe me you will not be disappointed. Our stay included the Easter week end which gave us a great insight into the local culture with local gatherings and party's on the beach as well as at pool side. The only down side to offering this review is that I fear too many other people will want to come here which may jeopardize our chance for furture bookings. Without hesitation we certainly echo the sentiments of the previous reviews and encourage you to experience it for yourself.
Thanks so much Mike and Deb for all your kind words. I'm so glad you had an amazing time at our condo and in our area of POP. I try hard to make our renters feel like it is their home for their stay and to have as much amenities on hand for them. I look forward to your future stay and will give you other suggestions of site seeing. So much to see and do all within a few hours. Safe travels , thanks for renting. Johanne
Incredible vacation - we didn't want to leave!
I am still having withdrawals that we had to leave! Just seeing the pictures on the property listing makes me sad that we aren't there anymore. The description is incredibly accurate - the view is amazing and having the doors during the day open makes for an incredible ocean breeze with the relaxing sound of waves. Having the water cooler with a 5 gallon jug of purified water was a life saver - we filled a few water bottles every day before going on outings. The washer and dryer were SO NICE. We would throw our beach towels into the dryer as soon as we got home and the maid would do other laundry. We came home to the US with NO dirty laundry. How incredible is that?!
I know when I scour VRBO to look for places to stay, its hard to decipher things about the pictures shown. To help you, I'll add some comments about things in the pictures on this listing. The coffee table in the living room was huge and we had all of our games for the kids, trip info, books, etc on there. We used it heavily. The master bedroom is really like triple the size of what the picture seems to portray, so we had a large space for our suitcases. Both bedrooms have huge closet spaces too. So we had tons of space to spread out.
We flew into Santiago (STI airport code) which is a longer drive than the closer airport (~1.5 hours). However, flying into that airport was much better airfare for us so that is why we did that.
The typical day was sleep until 8:30am, wake up and relax while maid cooked breakfast. Then, eat breakfast on the balcony and stare at the ocean. Head out for some kind of adventure. Come back around 5pm (sunset ~6pm in the winter) and enjoy just hanging out at the condo the rest of the evening. We relaxed, read, played games, and enjoyed TV-free time as a family.
Some of the local adventures we did - ATV "buggies" in Puerto Plata, horseback riding tour in Puerto Plata, and the cable car Telefrico also in Puerto Plata. 27 Waterfalls park is a must do - you don't have to go through a tour company either. We went to many beaches - Cofresi, Costembar, Cabarete, and Sosua. Our favorite was probably Sosua as we went on a banana boat and did a fantastic snorkeling tour from there. Massages on the beach, some shopping, eating out, etc. We took our girls to Ocean World - expensive to swim with dolphins, but our girls will remember that forever.
Absolutely LOVED our stay. Like I said, we are truly sad we had to leave. Would stay here again without a doubt!!
Amazing and exactly as desrcibed
I was one of three ladies who had the good fortune of renting this location for 2 weeks. Everything listed in the description was spot on!!
The view was beautiful, the pool quiet and serene, the waterfall in the pool blocking out any noise and leading to a feeling of tranquility. With all the rain we had it was some times difficult to tell if it was the waterfall or another shower but I did enjoy watching the rain as much as watching the ocean.
If cleanliness is next to Godliness then I must have been in church. The apartment was very very clean, the stairwells and the grounds also well kept. The day we left the maid removed everything from the cupboards, drawers and fridge to give it all a good cleaning. No detail was to small.
The maid/cook was FANTASIC. We enjoyed her famous lasagna, her coconut fish, goat stew (even for breakfast). With her help I was able to pick up more Spanish, more then the 3 previous visits to the D.R. Between the dictionaries and Google translate we found the few words we were struggling with.
Thank you for providing a very comprehensive booklet that included everything we needed to know. I can't think of anything that was missing. The extra bonus was having a local cell phone. We may not have used it much but we were able to contact some local friends rather then walking up the hill and knocking at the door.
The complex was well guarded and I felt safe at all times. When a friend came to the door he was accompanied by the security staff to ensure he was a welcomed guest.
Anyone booking this location should know that the small market 1 block over (Juan's) has better prices for some items then the large Supermarket in town. Some of the items I compared were alcohol, cranberry juice and Pringles. These items were 30 to 50 pesos less at the local market. If you pay in U.S $ he will give you change back in U.S $ and his exchange rate for dollars to pesos are as good if not better than the banks. Go early during the week if you want some fresh buns as rich as croissants.
Looking for something different to do.....head over to Ocean World Wed night for an evening of karaoke and you may catch one of the Dominican's best bachata dancers. Buy a bottle and mix, sit down and get to know some new people.
Hope to get back. I think I made a friend of the maid. Hope she enjoyed the music I played on my laptop for her to sing and dance to while we were out. Hope she is OK and safe with the flooding.
Thank you for your kind words. I try very hard to make everyone's visit special. It is very important to have the extras in the condo to make each persons holiday like home. We look forward to your return. Johanne
Amazing View and Stellar Service
My family had the pleasure of vacationing at this wonderful property for 10 days! The property exceeded our expectations and delivered all that was promised and then some. For starters the view from the porches were simply breathtaking! We so enjoyed sitting out there and hearing the ocean and feeling the pleasant breeze, both mornings and nights. We enjoyed the pool and the quietness of the property. The open and spacious layout provided more than enough room for us to be free.
Yurbi was such a viable asset to the property!. Her stellar service in preparing scrumptious meals, her willingness to help and to serve was remarkable. She made us feel so at home. Her attention to details in housekeeping and maintenance of the condo was incredible. We were able to communicate and build a sweet friendship.
This was the best property that our family has stayed and we would highly recommend staying here! We ate at the restaurant Chris & Maddy's numerous times and enjoyed our meals. We frequented the local store as well and everyone that crossed our paths, were so willing to help us!
Johanne, thank you so much for your helpfulness in making our vacation memorable. We appreciated the attention to making your home feel so much like our own!
Thank you for staying at our condo, we are so glad you had a wonderful holiday. We try and make it a home away from home. Yurbi and us look forward for you to come back for another holiday.
