About Jim Novack

I am a Californian that currently lives in Madrid Spain and 5 years ago was introduced to the paradise on earth that is the Dominican Republic by my close friends that live there. After enjoying year after year of wonderful vacations with them and my family, we decided to invest in a luxury property in Samaná and later purchased the penthouse apartment in Sotogrande at Cap Cana. As an engineer, I am a sticker for details and understand that vacations are meant to be fun and trouble-free. Let me know what you are looking to do and I will advise you of your choices, regardless of whether you decide to stay in our unit.

Jim Novack purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Jim Novack chose Punta Cana

Cap Cana is a secure, access-controlled luxury resort that was built at the height of the tourism and real estate boom on a truly unique stretch of 5 miles of white powder beach. It is unlikely that such an opulent and well-planned development will be matched for decades to come. Cap Cana is the best of US-oriented luxury and convenience, but minutes away from all the natural and unspoiled beauty of the Dominican Republic. You can golf, horseback ride, rent quads or buggies, zip-line, dance, drink or just rest on truly virtual-reality perfect beaches that test your senses as to whether it is real or your imagination...

What makes this apartment unique

Punta Cana Airport is 10 minutes away by taxi, world-class Jack Nicklaus´Punta Espada Golf Course and Golden Bear Lodge, deep sea fishing, scuba, horseback riding on the beach, buggies through the Dominican countryside, night life, restaurants, and above all the sweetness and willingness to please of the Dominican people who routinely answer with a smile whenever you ask, 'A la orden' (as you order/wish)...

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Just want to thank you for use of your place, it was just what we needed. The whole booking procedure was effortless and the place was everything that was disclosed. The workers at the resort were so polite and friendly. The unit was clean and its view was tremendous. He sat out every night and took it all in. The Sotogrande was very low key and quite which made for a perfect retreat. I will advise this place to my friends and family. Thanks again

My boyfriend and I spent 4 days at the condo. It was perfect. We spent a lot of time on the terrace overlooking the water. I would recommend this condo to anyone wanting a relaxing getaway in DR. Absolutely gorgeous!

Comfortable, quiet, well appointed

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in the relatively small and very quiet Sotogrande resort within the larger Cap Cana resort complex. Access to Cap Cana is closely restricted, so it's very secure and private. Sotogrande is a very nice resort, although with limited amenities--only one restaurant, plus a snack bar and a bar at the pool. Everything is very scenic and well maintained, and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. Interactions with the owner, Mr. Novack, were all very helpful and pleasant. Coffee on the balcony in the morning looking out over the pool and the Atlantic were always a good way to start the day.

Other resorts in Cap Cana are a short cab ride or bike ride away, and add options for restaurants and bars. We particularly enjoyed Juanillo's Beach, located next to Sanctuary Resort just to the north of Sotogrande, just 5 minutes away. There is a good open air restaurant there, a lovely beach and bar service--it's a good way to spend a day.

Note that access to other resort areas, outside Cap Cana, can be challenging unless you have are visiting a guest there. All the resorts control access closely, so getting to the beach in other areas can be a challenge.

There's a good grocery store (the Nacional) at Punta Cana village, and some banks there as well for safe ATM access.

Warm, inviting, excellent value!

  • 5 of 5

The place was lovely, bed quite comfortable, big bonus was the spacious outdoor patio where we star-gazed nightly. When you live in a city environment, nights are never so black and stars never so sparkly. As well, the HUGE infinity pool was perfect for uninterrupted laps, and the pool staff were delightful and accommodating. Took a day trip to Santa Domingo that was very interesting but since it was a trip to relax, read and catch-up on work, we mostly enjoyed the pool, beach and porch and REALLY appreciated the fact that this was a quiet area. Next time we'd skip renting a car--we'd just pay the large cab fees. We found it too stressful to drive (our navigation decided not to work until the last day) but that's just us. If you plan to do much exploring, a car might be a good thing to have. Would defn. come back.

A must.

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing atmosphere. Lovely decorated condo with great view of court yard, large pool and ocean. The property was well maintained and very clean. I would highly recommend this property, and we were very pleased with our interactions of the owner. We primary enjoyed the large pool for swimming, and thoroughly enjoy the entertainment pool activities and the staff.

My husband and I just got back from spending a week at this condo and we could not have loved it more! It was our first time using VRBO and we weren't sure about the whole experience but everything worked out well. There was a little miscommunication with Xiomara, the property manager, about our arrival time, but our key to the condo was waiting for us at the desk and we got moved in fine. We were very impressed with the views from the condo from our first sighting and it never failed. The condo is beautifully furnished and wonderfully located on the end. The property staff are very friendly and helpful and eager to please. The pool is fabulous and we used it everyday, usually after spending the day on the well kept beach. Nothing was crowded and it was very peaceful--just as we like it! We did not do the all inclusive, making our own breakfast and lunch. Dinners were out at one of the several restaurants found within Cap Cana, and twice at the resort. We rented a car but are re-thinking that for the next time we visit---AND, we definitely will be going back! Hopefully, next year at this same time! I would not hesitate to recommend this condo to friends and family. We feel we got lucky to find this condo for such a great price at such a beautiful location! Our first visit to the Dominican Republic was wonderful and we WILL be back!
