About Laurina Holte

We are a retired couple who fell in love with Punta Cana, and found this beautiful spacious complex under construction across from the beach, with shopping and restaurants nearby. It did not take us very long to decide to make Villa Mare our vacation property.

Laurina Holte purchased this condo in 2008

Why Laurina Holte chose Dominican Republic East

This is more like a Villa than a large, multi-family apartment building. It has only 14 units. We liked the perfect location across from the beach, the spacious and beautifully landscaped exterior, the generous size of the units, and the convenience to restaurants & shops.

What makes this condo unique

Quite, comfortable first-floor condo with a large terrace to relax on. All windows and terrace doors are secured with iron bars. You can cook in the spacious, well equipped kitchen or walk to nearby restaurants. 25 meters to beach which is across the road. Our able administrator will help you select tours, or you may select a tour company from a list which you will find in our condo, along with restaurant information, golf course information, etc. Our administrator is very friendly and is always willing to help our guests. There are no hidden charges.

Peaceful, Beautiful, Close to Beach & Restaurants

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful condo for a week before my Nephew's wedding. We we so pleased with how clean and comfortable the condo was. Very safe, The Morning Guard at the gate was so helpful, pleasant and a great singer, Wendy the grounds keeper was very helpful also. Everyone is so friendly and we were pleased that there were a variety of restaurants, convenience stores, etc within walking distance. The beach is right across the street, so white and clean. The water was so warm and comfortable. Great walking along the beach. Very safe.

Thank you Laurina for allowing us to stay in your home for a week. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Beautiful, quiet & safe two bedroom, two bath condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the condo, the grounds keeper Wendy was very helpful with questions and would bring us water when we needed it. The daytime guard was wonderful, would watch the place very closely and would sing while touring the grounds. The public beach is conveniently located right across the street and a large variety of restaurants & convenience stores are all within walking distance. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who asked.

Home away from Home

  • 4 of 5

Great Condo! Nice smaller complex, quiet setting compared to a large resort. We enjoyed our two week stay @ Laurina's condo, 4 adults. Great location, right across the street is the beach & there are two small markets within walking distance to get all your groceries that you need. If you want to go to the two larger malls & grocery stores it is very easy to hop on the bus & go whenever you want for 30 pesco's, all kinds of restaurants also within walking distance, no need for a car. Anna was waiting for us when we arrived to let us into the Condo & give us a detailed tour, we contacted Anna with some questions & she replied right away, great to know she is there to help out if you need anything. Appreciated Laurina's immediate response to our questions. Wendy, the maintenance man, and the guard at the gate (can't remember his name) were there around the clock to meet us every time we went in & out of our complex, felt very safe. The Condo has all the supplies that you need, felt like home. The Grill or BBQ was a nice addition to the property, we used it just about every night. The pool was not working when we arrived but after a few days they had it repaired & we used it every day, nice to sit around & visit with the other guests at the complex. The Beach is great & right across the street, easy access, loved it. The condo does feel alittle dark, but that is due to the heavy curtains in the living room, would suggest they be updated along with the sofa in the living room. This place has a huge terrace which we used all the time, would be nice to have a small outdoor table & chairs out there so you could eat outside, & would be nice to have beach chairs. Would definitely recommend this condo & if we return to the Dominican would stay here again. Thanks for everything

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We enjoyed having you as our guests. We are indeed going to buy a new sofa for the condo on our next trip to Punta Cana, and perhaps a table and chairs for the terrace to supplement the other furniture.

Canadian couple

  • 5 of 5

we stayed at the Villa Mare in Cortecito Beach for 3 weeks in January...Overall, it was a wonderful time. First of all the location is fantastic. The beach right across the street, easy access was great. Restaurants were close by and were very good, There are two super-markets within a 5 min. walk (visitor tip....brush up on your Spanish because non of the locals speak English)

Location cannot be beat.

The condo was spacious, a couple of small improvements could have been made, we pointed them out to the owner when we talked on the phone, but non of the issues were deal breakers. Also, security at this gated complex was 24/7 and was excellent we felt very safe.

Fantastic Vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at Laurina's 2 bedroom condo for 11 days, it was a fantastic experience. The place was clean, nicely decorated with a kitchen that included a blender, microwave, eating utensils, bottled water, pots and pans, etc. The property had a grill that we used several days during our stay to grill lobster that we bought from the guy with cooler on his bike, chicken from the supermarket and fish that we caught on one our excursions. You can't beat the location, across the street from a popular part of the the beach with a nice tiki bar that served good drinks and decent food (they were a little slow on service.). You were minutes in walking distance from the center of town that had plenty of boutique type restaurants and bakeries, supermarket and a nice gym. For those who need a mall that offered the same conveniences of home, it was a short cab ride. The cab ride was a little expensive. I would definitely recommend Laurina's condo and will stay there when I return to the DR. Laurina's onsite management team were also professional, courteous, prompt, and readily available when needed. IF you go to the DR, stay with Laurina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Paradise Awaits You!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 2-1/2 months at Villa Mare and would definitely stay here again. The condo was very well maintained and the location was perfect. The condo was within walking distance to some of the finest restaurants on the island. The beach was a couple of steps away and one of the finest beaches around. The grounds were well kept and very lush and tropical. The owner, Laurina was very helpful prior and during our stay as well as the condo administrator, Ana who was always available when we needed anything. I would recommend this condo to my friends and family because it is in a perfect location and very well maintained.
