About the property

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom Front Line Beach Condo

We invite you to share our beautiful home set right in the sand of Playa Palmera Beach the jewel of Punta Cana's Coconut Coast. Live the luxury and breathtaking views you'll never tire of at the specific condo unit which was toured and exclaimed over on House Hunters International. See why this location was the winner.

If you weren’t relaxing on your spacious, second floor balcony you would be standing in the sand with nothing but palm trees and breaking surf in front of you and gorgeous infinity and lap pools to the side.

Enjoy staying at the end of the road in paradise with breathtaking Caribbean vistas. Watch the surf break from your 300 square foot balcony, Living & Dining rooms, Master bedroom, even the kitchen sink right here! Throw the glass doors open to fall asleep surrounded by the sound of waves.

Our richly detailed, 1722 square foot home, has two Master suites. See palm trees from each and every room. Grill dinner while sipping cocktails surrounded by palm trees and ocean. Most importantly, being truly front line, you will feel the ocean breeze day and night. AC is provided but we believe you will soon fall in love with and prefer the palm tree rustling sea winds.

This exclusive, gated community of only 30 units, has a well cared for private beach offering sun or a quiet, shady spot. 24/7, not really necessary, security means constant peace of mind. In fact, there is nothing to do but endlessly relax. Enjoy watching a sky full of stars.

Inside you will find a fully equipped apartment with AC, ceiling fans, 2 separate showers, full size washer & dryer, gas stove, oven, fridge, bottled water dispenser, 42” TVs with Cable, DVD/BlueRays, radio/CD player, alarm clocks, security safe, microwave, cookware, fully loaded kitchen and bar dishes, coffee maker, blender, rice cooker, toaster, hair dryers, iron & ironing board, linens, towels/beach towels, children’s sand toys, board games, video, music & book libraries. FREE fiber optic cable WiFi provided inside the unit. Also free WiFi by the pool. Free MagicJack phone calls to USA and Canada.

Experience the scenic drive from the Punta Cana airport on the new 4 lane highway which makes the drive fast, easy and safe by rental car or arranged pick up to arrive at a place full of comforts and few distractions yet near to a convenience store, bank, artisan souvenirs, restaurants and a water park. You can choose to never leave the beach or head toward the casinos and night life if you prefer.

If you are looking for more than lounging with a good book and snorkeling right outside your door the onsite manager can arrange golfing, dolphin swims, boating, fishing, dune buggies, windsurfing, para-sailing, horseback riding, massage, shopping trips and more.

You will never find a friendlier home away from home. Let our vacation home be your home for the perfect get away experience.

(This is a NO Smoking unit.)

About Denyse Gantenbein

We are a Canadian and Swiss couple who live in the United States but love to travel whenever we can manage it.

Denyse Gantenbein purchased this condo in 2012

Why Denyse Gantenbein chose Uvero Alto

We love the friendly Dominican people. They are always so happy and fun. We have seldom met such consistently nice people in all of our travels.

What makes this condo unique

Las Dunas is small and personalized. Everyone is friendly and social yet it is quiet enough to have the beach or pool all to your self at times.

Wonderful on-the-sand condo.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this property. The photos are accurate, but they don't come near to the real beauty found there. Everything you need is provided, including the sound of the wind and waves every evening.

While it is easy to just relax and stay put, we recommend renting a car and exploring Higuey, and Play Boca Chica (especially on a Sunday). Stop by one of the many road side stands and buy the sweetest pineapples, mangoes, and bananas. Yum!!

Denyse's info packet that she sends a week or two prior answered most of our questions: when we had other questions, she was very quick to respond.

It doesn't get any better than this!

Absolute paradise...

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier staying at Denyse's place at Uvero Alto beach. The view took our breath away every day and it was so quiet and peaceful. Funny how everyone from the big resorts stopped to take pictures on this beach because it's so lovely and secluded and not crowded with a million lounge chairs and cabanas. It's a completely unspoiled view of the ocean and the palms. The condo is much bigger than I expected. So convenient to have 2.5 baths and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook if you choose to.

We hung by the pool, a little bit by the beach but it was pretty windy during our stay. I don't think it's normally this windy. We didn't have to put the AC on at all - the breeze through the condo was perfect. We loved just sitting out on the balcony and enjoying the view.

We cooked breakfast every day, had snacks during the day and went out for dinner at night. We tried Jellyfish and it was delicious. We ate at Navegante - the grilled lobster, octopus and shrimp were good...we just liked how convenient it was to walk to and the view is lovely. The beer was ice cold and they serve pina coladas in a pineapple. We ate at Capuccino Mare twice and loved it. One night we just felt like having pizza and it was great then we went back for mixed grill with meat and seafood - it was enough food for 4 people. Delicious. We also ate at the steakhouse in the Hard Rock Casino. It was very expensive but the food was nice.

We took a drive to Miches and it was so pretty. We stopped at Montana Redonda and paid $30 to go to the top of the mountain for pictures and the view. It's a pretty rough ride in the back of a pick up truck but you can always opt to ride in front. The view is spectacular!

Marcia and the staff were super helpful and very attentive for whatever we needed. We would highly recommend Denyse's place and will definitely be back. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us. :)

Building 10, Condo 2A

  • 5 of 5

You cannot say you have been to the DR if you are captured at an all-inclusive resort. Since you already paid for the food and drinks, you feel obligated to stay on the resort to get your money’s worth. This is fine if you do not want to actually experience the real country and the friendly people. But if you do want to experience the culture and the pleasant people in the DR then rent a condo and go out to eat and play.

This was our first visit to the DR and I was apprehensive concerning the local food, water and possibly the people. All of these issues disappeared within hours of arriving after eating a late lunch/dinner in Punta Cana village and graciously being assisted by locals with a dead battery of my rental car.

The condo I selected belongs to Denyse Ganterbein located in Uvero Alto. This condo has more than just an ocean view, it is literally a stone’s throw to the ocean, if you can get through the palm trees. It is in a community of approximately 5 building and thirty condos of which I may have seen 10 or less people on the beach at any given time. There is no reserving beach lounges or paying extra for a beach cabana. The staff is on the beach every day before sunrise cleaning the seaweed and debris from the day before. The condo is exactly as Denyse describes and better. Unlike the photo you see from the all-inclusive resorts of the best most expensive rooms and settling for a view of the parking lot 200 meters from the beach. This is the real thing. So if you like getting up in the morning in your pajamas and having your coffee on the patio watching the palms sway and the ocean rumble, this is your place.

This experience was better than expected. The condo and grounds are in excellent condition. Minor issues we had with plumbing and air conditioning were fixed within hours of reporting. Very quiet and peaceful location, it was like a little slice of heaven.

Great time at Las Dunas.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the beach. Having stayed at a resort last year in Punta Cana, we found this a refreshing change. The beach is quite, secluded, and safe. We rented a car from the complex and drove to Cap Cana and Blue Mall. Also made many trips into town. No driving issues at all. Great vacation!
