My cousin and I stayed at the condo over New Year's and it was the perfect size for us. The condo is nicely furnished and the two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms in both were great for two girls. The pool is a bit small but really we went for the beaches - we spent all our time on the beautiful white sands :) We did prefer the beach closer towards the supermarket. We loved that we could walk to the beach, the supermarket and restaurants for dinner. Napoleon & Jacquelyn went above and beyond to help coordinate our visit - they are a model of what you'd like from a Homeaway host! They helped us with recommendations - Citrus was lovely (especially the sangria) as well as Chez Mon Ami (where we had NYE dinner). We also really enjoyed their recommendation for a bar to have a cocktail - Onno's - where we celebrated Nicola's birthday! Everywhere they recommended was great. We did have to figure out how to get to the mall to use an ATM - there is not one in walking distance. If you are not renting a car then I would definitely recommend having cash on hand as some restaurants and the activities required cash (not credit card). We really enjoyed the day trip out to Saona Island - truly beautiful, like a postcard! My favorite part was the "natural swimming pool" which is a large sand bar where everyone just hangs out. Also I wanted to say that Alejandro (the driver) and Cynthia (the property manager) were both fabulous! They were very friendly, always willing to answer question and they helped us out alot! All in all it was a wonderful experience because Napoleon, Jackie, Alejandro & Cynthia made it so easy and stress-free! Huge thank you to you all!
The villa is wonderful - has been renovated just before we came, so all the furniture and electronics are new. The owner has put a lot of effort to make it look and feel comfortable. The kitchen equipped with all the kitchenware you may ever need, so those who like to cook can do so.
The owner tried very hard to take good care of us through his property manager who was very nice and helpful. We would definitely recommend this property and the owner to anyone who are interested in vacationing in Dominican Republic. In terms of comfort, privacy and value, staying in this villa cannot be compared with staying at any hotel.
The only negative points have to do with the town and the country itself - namely, pretty primitive infrastructure, to speak of. If you are traveling with infants and elderly persons, as we did, you need to be prepared to use taxi to go to and from the beach or anywhere else - $10 each way, if not far, and of course much more if you go to the airport or to see places. So for the active adults, with or without kids - who don't mind to walk 5-10 min in hot weather to the beach or to a restaurant, this is really a wonderful place to stay. We did not try to rent a car. Probably it would have made it much easier to manage the old lady and the infant, but we were not sure about renting a vehicle in an unfamiliar place.
Ask us about booking various excursions and tours! These tours include Saona Island, Swimming with the Dolphins, Dune buggies, Horseback Riding on the Beach, Santo Domingo City Tour, Zip-lining, Wave Runners, etc. Tour Transportation is provided to and from the excursion!
