We always travelled with our friends and their kids.
We could never find a property that had identical master bedrooms and always had to draw who will get the lesser room..... our home is perfect for two families.
We have two identical master bedrooms as well as two additional bedrooms with two queen size beds each.
The beach and pool are right in front of the apartment, the marina with it's restaurants and boats is a 2 minute walk. A Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, Punta Espada is a 5 minutes drive.
WE ARE MEMBERS OF THE CLUB AND OFFER GUEST PRIVILEDEGS TO OUR GUESTS, INCLUDING REDUCED GREENS FEES.
WE ARE MEMBERS OF THE CALETON BEACH CLUB (RUN BY EDEN ROCK) AND OUR GUESTS ARE WELCOME (FREE).
We love taking evening strolls in the marina to see which boats came in and look at the catch of the day.

we looked for a beach property that will be easy to get to and will have a lot of direct non-stop flights from many locations. we looked for a property that was close to the airport but RIGHT ON THE WATER. the resort had to have a golf course, tennis and it had to be the IDEAL WHITE SAND CARIBBEAN BEACH YOU DREAM ABOUT!!!! we found it all in Cap Cana. The golf course, Punta Espada, is a Jack Nicklaus signature course and in 2009 became the number one golf course in the Caribbean. The course already hosted the PGA Champions tour twice. we love it! our kids and grand kids love it and you will too!!!
our last guests had to take a container of sand from the beach to prove to everyone how white the sand is!!!
We took a leap of faith, 2 families travelling with 2 infants and a toddler travelling out of the country, but we couldn't be happier with our stay at the condo. The owners made everything easy and were very welcoming and accomodating. Anything that we needed during our stay, the owners were available day or night to help. The grounds were amazing and the ocean and pools taken right out of a postcard. The condo was first class and had every amenity, even for young families (cribs, beach toys, etc). One morning we realized we left our new camara at the grounds marina restaurant, and we were scared we lost all our personal baby pictures. To our relief the wait staff had secured it for us and we got it back that evening. We can't wait to go back.
The Podell's were outstanding to work with from start to finish. The concierge picked us up at the airport (three children 12, 11, 7), and we headed to the supermarket. In 30 minutes we had our necessities for the week and were off to the resort.
Upon arrival, we were provided a brief 10-15 minute review of the property (bars/pools/cabanas) and walked up to the condo. We were greeted by Selene(maid) and all groceries were unpacked and luggage was in rooms. Great start to the vacation!
Visiting in mid/late July, be aware this is NOT their busy season. This laid back season appealed to us. Within this property, near the marina, we had no crowding issues and easy access to the two best restaurants within walking distance for dinner. The beach at the property was white sand and clear water...seaweed was around but not abundant. We used a different beach at Caleton.
The condo was incredible with four bedrooms (2 with 2 queens and 2 with Kings). Tons of space and screened porches. We never saw an insect at the condo! Every room was spotless. The TV in the living room could probably stand to be upgraded, but we watched very little TV during our trip. The condo offers 4 1/2 bathrooms and tons of space. My wife and I had plenty of privacy as the kids loved their own half of the condo! Selene showed up daily and washed towels, dishes, bedding, and cleaned. We didn't utilize her for cooking, etc. as our focus was on being at the beach/pool all day. She was fantastic and every towel and beach toy possible was provided.
CapCana offers $3 cab service to any place within CapCana! We utilized their membership and the $3/ten minute ride and used the EdenRoc facilities at Caleton Beach every day. This resort is on par with some of the finest resorts we've ever seen. Pristine beach (think Siesta Key and Turks&Caicos clear), free towels, cabanas, etc. Enormous infinity pools at Eden Roc, cabana service for lunch/drinks, and a nice "pricey" restaurant on site. Service was top notch and the Podell's had our name on the list and we were treated as regulars.
Make friends with a cab/mini van driver and call when needed (we used Clemente for every ride)
Prepare for pricier meals on property, normal for resorts.
Went to village for Italian at Mamma Luisa's, twice (top 5 Italian ever and half price of IL Cappuccino on site)
U.S. Currency works fine, just know the conversion.
Scape Park, just do ZipLine and head back to beach.

I've rented with VRBO many times before and this was possibly the BEST experience ever! Beginning with our first contact by email, Roni was extremely helpful and always willing to answer all of my questions. During our stay, she called to check on us. Within a week of our departure, our deposit had been returned to us and Roni followed up with us to confirm that we received it. (That never happens.)
The condo is absolutely stunning! It is roomy, tastefully decorated, and spotless. All four bedrooms are spacious, and both balconies provide a great view of the pool and beach. The property is located in Cap Cana, a gated area that provides everything you could want... beaches, restaurants, shops, and a marina. A cab can take you anywhere in Cap Cana for $3...a great deal. the Cap Cana area of the island is simply beautiful!
Since Roni and Josh are members of the Caleton Beach Club (at Eden Roc), we were able to enjoy their private beach...it's gorgeous! Don't miss it if you rent this property...definitely a highlight of our entire trip!
You will not be disappointed by this property. We highly recommend it!
Mr. Roni Podell,
I personally would like to thank you for providing great hospitality to me and my guest. Going on vacation can be stressful but staying at your home was stress less.
The services that were provided such as a full time maid, internet access, Bose/Sonos music system, private concierge, car rental, excursions, chefs, babysitters, home spa treatments and all utilities/luxuries the home offered made our stay more relaxing and very comfortable. Roni, thank you again for allowing us to use your membership at Eden Roc Beach Club.
If you are ever in the area and need somewhere to stay, please consider this location. No other place will treat you like royalty. Our vacation was simply PARADISE.
Thank you again,
25 years ago we shared a common wedding plan date. So, we’ve always wanted to take a vacation together to celebrate our weddings. We were excited to finally plan our 25th Wedding Anniversary Celebration/vacation. We selected the Capcana Beach Condo because of the beautiful online pictures and because of the two identical master suites which was perfect for us. We had many online conversations with the owners...they were extremely helpful as we finalized our plans. Once we agreed to rent the condo the owner /VROB- Home Away provided a very convenient payment process that accommodated our needs. The Owners arranged for a concierge to be available to handle all the logistics and questions associated with our arrival. There was nothing left to do but board the plane.
We were welcomed at the airport and taken to the grocery store. This was a fun experience and a great introduction to our host location. We were then taken to the condo were we met Dorey, our wonderful concierge. She showed us around the outside of the condo and then took us to the condo. OMG...it was absolutely stunning. It was more beautiful than we could have imagined or hoped. The condo was clean, well-organized and very tastefully decorated! Our master suites & en-suites were what you would expect in a luxury 4/5-star hotel or resort. The maid that was assigned to the condo was very good at keeping the condo clean; dishes washed/ put away; beds made and clean towel/linens were provided daily. We all had our own choices for breakfast so we made our own meals...however, she made a delicious Dominican breakfast for us.
We were on-site during a time that had very few visitors. So we virtually had a private pool and private beach which was wonderful. When it was time for us to leave, we all wanted to stay longer. We certainly plan to come back in 2041 for our 50th anniversary! Finally, we left the condo on Thursday to return home and on Monday of the following week our security deposit had been refunded to my account...a very pleasant surprise. So, thank you Josh & Roni you were amazing hosts ... you provided for our every need. You made the memories of our anniversary vacation the "cherry" on our wonderful 25 years of marriage.

The property is approximately 10 to 20 minutes from the airport, golf courses, restaurants, and shopping. The condo is large, well designed, well equipped, and will handle 4 couples easily. The unit had great views of the pool and ocean. It is a short walk to several nice restaurants in the marina. For us the greatest advantage this property offered for our first trip to the Dominican Republic was the support we received from the owners and their support staff. The owners are very well organized, provided needed information, and answered all our questions on a timely basis. The owners also provided a in country support staff to take care of their guests. They provided a consignere (Doribel) to show you around the condo, make reservations for you, answer any questions, and help you with any issues that come up which in our case was lost luggage that she handled for us. They also provide a maid to make the beds, keep the place clean, do the dishes, do the laundry, and cook btrekfast and lunch if you want. The owners are members of the Punta Espada country club and the Beach Club which give you access to both. If you have golfers in the group then the head pro will book tee times at Punta Espada and other local golf courses at a discounted rate. We have been renting homes all over the world for 20 + Years for our annual family vacations and the owners of this unit rank #1 in overall service to the families renting their home.
10 Minutes to Punta Cana Airport!
Other Activities: boating, parasailing, health/beauty spa
