Guestbook comments from the owner

We've rented a number of vacation spots before in France, Mexico and New York. This was by far the best equipped -- after groceries we were all set for the week. I'll happily recommend it as a vacation spot to friends and family.


> Sincere thanks as well for all the little extras -- from access to the cell phone, to dvds to watch to help with the oven.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to stay at Sam and Bonnie's beautiful condo for 3 weeks in February 2016. We can't say enough how great Sam and Bonnie are. They are so helpful and very easy to work with. The condo itself is our favorite condo we have ever stayed in. The condo is very clean, has a beautiful deck overlooking the pool and the ocean. We don't care for air conditioning, so we love the beautiful breeze coming thru. We never even considered running the air. The beach here is amazing! We would highly recommend this condo to a friend or relative. Thanks again to Sam and Bonnie for allowing us to enjoy their wonderful condo!

Amazing Location and Condo

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Bonnie and Sam for letting us enjoy your wonderful property for a great three-week vacation for the last three weeks of January. The description in this listing is very accurate and the location is great, clean, and very enjoyable. We met a lot of friendly people during our second stay at Stanza Mare and they made our vacation even more enjoyable. The pool and beach are beautiful and the restaurants surrounding the condo are great. We had fresh bread and pastries from the local bakery every morning. The condo itself was also great and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the free internet to stay in touch and remind us how cold it was back home! We did not have any problems during our stay. We will definitely be returning to Stanza Mare next year. Thank you also to Linda and Vincente for looking after our needs while there.

Bonnie and Sam are very friendly and made sure everything was going well during our stay. Booking and corresponding with them was very easy and quick. The washer and dryer were very useful, even though we did not have to use them very much. The breeze at night was great and made sleeping so much easier. We never needed to turn the air conditioning on. Car rental is not required, almost everything you need is within a short walking distance. For grocery shopping, we took the local bus (30 pesos per person) and went to the large grocery store at the San Juan mall, taking a cab back to the condo with our groceries. Even our kids enjoyed the bus ride. People on it are friendly and very well behaved. The pool is nice and clean and the ocean is beautiful and warm. The condo has everything you need and has a great view of the ocean (and pool) from the balcony. The beds were comfortable and the safe was very useful for our valuables. The condo is highly recommended. A definite 5-star experience.

Beautiful, hassle-free condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo housed myself, my husband, and another couple. It was the perfect space for all of us. Stanza Mare, the condo residence, is beautiful. The pool is refreshing and the beach is just a minute walk. Beautiful beach, nice sand, good waves... some vendors on the beach but out farther. If you just relax on the chairs (provided) you won't get bothered.

The condo had everything you might need for a comfortable week stay. Stocked kitchen, even some snacks and alcohol already there. Close to food and super markets and excursions. We didn't have a rental car and it was not needed the whole week.

Absolutely a Fantastic, Memorable Condo which we will revisit in the future !!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent 10 days at this condo and we can not say enough about how happy we are that we took the trip. Sam and Bonnie were very quick to respond to our questions as was their Property Managers on site. Linda and Vicente are absolutely genuine, wonderful people who make you feel like you are coming home.

There was actually 2 bathrooms instead of the 1 listed and that was a welcome surprise. The view you see in the photos is truly the view you wake up to. Everything you could think of is in the condo. I had brought a hair dryer, curling iron, etc ... no need, already there. Bags to go shopping, rain ponchos, etc... no need already there. The condo is on the 4th floor and my legs after 10 days are looking pretty tan and lean :)

I was concerned about Security on the property for we had never been to the Dominican Republic and all of my worries were erased once we arrived. The grounds have a gated guard station which honestly I'm glad it was there but I realized after a couple of days it really was safe to walk to the neighboring restaurants just fine. The beach area is wonderful, it is spacious, clean and its roped off so the local vendors don't cross it to sell their wares. Mind you once you walk across the rope then it's fair game for "Hey Lady, come see my shop" which this is their livelihood and they are respectful when you say no and no thank you.

If you are interested in the excursions that the area has to offer you must speak with Linda & Vicente Rivera (LVR Excursions) also the property managers for this condo. My daughter and I had such a great time and they definitely know the ropes :)

The BEST part of our vacation to the Dominican Republic!

  • 5 of 5

My 22 year old daughter and I traveled to Punta Cana, DR for the first time last month (March 2015). We stayed at this condo for 6 days and loved it so much. These photo's don't do it justice. It is actually nicer than you see here. Particularly the pool area.

The condo was comfortable and had all the amenities. The breeze kept the temp very comfortable and we rarely used the air conditioner. The property managers, Vicente and Linda helped us so graciously and were SO very friendly to us. We will consider them friends for life. Vincente knew the the area very well, so he was able to give us excellent directions to where we wanted to go. He even loaned us snorkel equipment at n/c for our day to the Indigenous Eyes Eco park - Blue Hole which was the best swimming ever!

There are several markets and a nice strip mall just a couple blocks walk away, so you can access anything you might need. I felt very safe walking in this area and that was even at night. This is a gated community, so there are also security guards to let you in and out and that patrol the area regularly.

The large bottled water for the drinking fountain in our unit was only 2.00 US dollars to replace. We are big water drinkers and only went through 3 of them during the 6 days that we were there. Very nice feature.

This was truly a place of healing for us. These condos are right on the ocean. So peaceful. Our favorite thing to do was to just sit on our look at the view. The para-sailer's go by quite frequently, so you will see the colorful balloon that is in this photo often, which we personally liked. There are free lawn chairs for you both at the pool and on the ocean beach and plenty of thatched hut coverings for shade. You may want to note that there are party boats that pass by, occasionally, but we personally never found this to be a problem even though we are very quiet people. On Saturday night, there was a live band close by, but they stopped playing at 11p.

Sandy, the owner of this condo, was very expedient in communicating with us when we were in the decision making process of renting it. We would definitely come back here to this exact condo unit if we re-visited the DR. It feels like home to us. We even liked our stay here at Stanza Mare better than the All-Inclusive Luxury Resort that we went to for 4 days after we left!

This unit is a jewel, reasonably priced and worth every penny of it.

Great condo - great view

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Punta Cana for a 2 week vacation after Christmas; we are so glad that we choose this condo. Although we have been to Punta Cana a number of times in the past this condo was the by far the best equipped unit that we have rented, there was everything you may need (it was like being at home).

The breezes on this 4th floor unit meant that the use of a/c was almost unnecessary and the view across the pool and out to the ocean was so nice. This condo had everything you may need for the beach from koozies and insulated glasses and mugs for your favorite beverages to large towels, folding chairs and 2 lounge chairs at the beach for the exclusive use of the renters of this unit. The master suite (also with a great view of the pool and ocean) was so nice with a very comfy king-size bed, TV and DVD player (with a large library of movies). The loft bedroom also has a TV and is very spacious, great for kids or adults.

Booking and corresponding with Sam and Bonnie was excellent during the booking process and after (even during the stay). The property managers live on site and are always available for any questions or concerns you may have. As Wi-Fi is not the best at the complex it was so nice that this unit had their own Wi-Fi, a very nice extra.

The stay was absolutely amazing and we highly recommend this unit for your vacation.
