Overview

About the property

Three ensuite large bedrooms, two terraces, jacuzzi, pool, golf course view

A spacious, comfortable, and relaxing atmosphere in the heart of a lush Caribbean resort: 20 minutes from Las Americas international airport, and 50 minutes from Santo Domingo, this tastefully equipped fully furnished penthouse offers something for golf players and beach lovers alike.

Very bright and with high ceilings, the apartment is stylishly decorated with Italian designer furniture. The apartment has cable and plasma TV, DVD player, WiFi nternet access, air-conditioning and ceiling fans in all rooms, a large terrace with dining area, sun deck and private jacuzzi accommodating 6 persons. Each bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom. Cleaning, cooking and laundry servives are included in the price. Baby sitting services are available upon request. Free access to four bicycles and parking space for two vehicles.

Located within a small friendly compound with a swimming pool, residents are free to use the Guavaberry Golf and Country Club facilities. These include an 18 hole golf course designed by Gary Player, tennis courts, polo course and equestrian centre as well as a private white sand beach in Juan Dolio.

Perfect for families, couples or a group of friends. The place is very well connected with a doctor’s clinic, pharmacy, and super market 5 minutes away by car. Surrounded by exotic birds and wildlife, you can benefit from the peace, quiet and safety of a gated community and also savour the local flavours of beach clubs and restaurants nearby in the Juan Dolio area. Santo Domingo is only a car ride away and there are several local cultural attractions nearby.

The 4 bicycles at your disposal enable you to enjoy the 14 km Guavaberry natural reserve by biking on the golf course course shaded paths. Our terraces' hammocks invite you to just take a book or enjoy the amazing greenery and bird life of the place, after a day on the beach.

The outdoor grill area is ideal for group party, and Carina, our full time maid is an excellent cook and can prepare the most delicious caribbean food. She is also a very nice and patient babysitter in case you would like to enjoy an evening or day out.

An interesting feature of our place is its spacious leaving room and its particular atmosphere. It is furnished and decorated with original paintings and Italian design furniture. Each bedroom has a special character and, as everything in the apartment, they are immaculately clean.

The kitchen is functional, spacious and well equiped.2

About Rosemary

I'm from the Dominican Republic and for the past 20 years I have been living in Rome, Italy, with my husband and two daughters. My favourite flowers are Roses and I cultivate them on my terrace here in Rome. I love gardening. I like dancing and yoga too. I often visit museums and exhibitions and I paint as well.

Because of my studies and work I have lived in Sweden, the US, Guatemala and Vietnam. I am a very social person, I love parties, meeting new people and spending time with my family. My family and I love reading and we have many books for our guests to enjoy. As a host, my wish is for people to feel at home during their visit and as I travel a lot, I know the importance of staying somewhere comfortable and clean with a warm welcoming environment.

Rosemary purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Rosemary chose Dominican Republic East

I love this property because it gives me and my family the opportunity to enjoy the Caribbean paradise in a secured place and with the highest comfort possible.

What makes this apartment unique

The unusual architecture as well as the location was what attracted us to purchase the property. The high ceiling of the penthouse provides a feeling of a cathedral-like space while the large terraces add a comfortable and relaxing area for dining, enjoy the jacuzzi and sunbathing. The view of the golf course is open and the big threes and greenery surrounding the property along with the song birds that populate the area enhances the feeling of peace and tranquility. For gofers, we offer reduced tee time prices. For beach lovers, our placee offers easy access to white sand beaches and diving facilities around caves, fantastic coral reefs, and proximity to natural reserve the islands of Catalina and Saona ...

Car: necessary

take the motorway from the International Airport Las Americas towards San Pedro de Macoris / La Romana. 17 km before San Pedro de Macoris, turn right and follow the signs to Guavaberry Golf and Country Club.

Las Cuevas de las Maravillas with its extraodinary geologic formations are worth a visit (half hour away by car). Bayahibe and Isla Saona are a nice day trip - there you can visit the Saona nature reserve and bathe in its pristine beaches and natural pools. San Pedro de Macoris is a few minutes away by car from the apartment, this town is known for its colonial architecture and world-famous baseball players.

If you come in February, you can experience the unique Dominican carnival as well as go whale watching in the Samana area. The capital, Santo Domingo, the first city of the new world with its old town and rich cultural history is 45 min. away from the apartment by car. There you can visit Columbus's house and the oldest cathedral in the Americas. Juan Dolio, the town closest to the apartment (7 min. by car) has many nice bars and restaurants. We recommend the Wood Cafe which has excellent fruit juices and live music on saturday evenings. Cafe Bistro has good pizzas and live music on fridays. A nice place on the beach is Cafe del Sol where you can both eat and bathe in comfortable chaise-longes by the crystaline water.

Stunning Condo on the Golf Course

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse is in the Guavaberry Country Club Resort property. It is very spacious with high quality finishes. The ladies are available to cook the most delicious Dominican meals. You can go for long walks on the practically empty golf course. It is about a 20 minute drive to the beach. It is a 40 minute drive to get groceries and 60 minutes to Santo Domigo. If you want a quiet relaxing time than this is the place. You should be able to speak a little more than basic Spanish.

Graduation Vacation Trip to DR

  • 3 of 5

I must say that the Penthouse was breathtaking. The two ladies Carina and Viola were fantastic. They were so attentive and so caring we could not ask for more of them. The Penthouse spacious beautiful, clean, overlooking the golf course. I personally would only recommend this property to travelers that want to get away from the daily routine of city life. If they would want to go to relax and enjoy quite time. I would not recommend the property for children nor young adults. If you don't have a car it is impossible to get from point A to point B without a car. There are no amenities for children only bikes. Nothing to do inside the compound for entertainment. The nearest place for entertainment, restaurants its about 25 to 30 minutes away. We had access to the Guavaberry Country Club to say the least it did not meet our expectations. Other than that the Penthouse is beautiful for relaxation, you get a cook and cleaning lady. They both are great cooks and just overall amazing ladies I will miss them.

Thank you.
