Las Olas is a fantastic beachfront condo in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic located in the Perla Marina gated community. The condo is ideally situated between the town of Sosua and Cabarete which offers a peaceful and serene atmosphere for those looking to just relax and unwind, and only a five minute drive away from the lively waterfront restaurants, night clubs, and casinos. For those who love snorkeling, scuba diving, sun tanning, great food, and great weather, then you will love the convenience of being close to it all. No matter what kind of traveler you are, there is something for everyone.

Cabarete, Dominican Republic is home to Kite Surfing, known for it’s friendly locals, and feels just like home from the minute you arrive!

Our Las Olas condo was newly renovated from top to bottom in late 2009 and no expenses were spared in the design and re-build of this modern oasis. All stainless steel kitchen appliances, top of the line 50” plasma TV, new air conditioning units, plush pillow top mattresses, and special window treatments have been added for the comfort of all guests staying at our Las Olas unit. Located on the top floor (3rd) of the Las Olas building you will always enjoy the view of the ocean and sound of the waves.

Free parking is also included in the unit.

About Jeanelle Robles

We always planned on having a home away from home somewhere on the beach. Our entire family, including our 2 young sons love spending time swimming, playing in the sand, exploring nature and learning the culture of the Dominican Republic. We were very lucky to find our condo, and it was an absolute joy renovating it and making it feel like home. We want all of our guests to feel like their home every time they visit our Las Olas condo.

Jeanelle Robles purchased this condo in 2008

Why Jeanelle Robles chose Dominican Republic

We chose Cabarete because there is something magical about it. It's a different way of life down there, and we have a hard time leaving anytime we visit. Las Olas was our perfect choice because of the semi-private beach - we are ocean people and we love spending our entire days lying out in the sand and playing in the ocean. Knowing that our beach is only used for residence of Perla Marina was fantastic! Also, we felt extremely safe, and that is our number one priority especially since we travel with our kids all the time.

What makes this condo unique

The view from the balcony sold us completely on the property. You can eat on the balcony rain or shine and always watch the waves and hear the amazing sounds of the ocean. We loved that it was not near the busy streets and tourist beach, since we're the type of vacationers who like to relax in peace and quiet, but have the option to easily be where the party is.

Wonderful beaches, views, breezes and location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three glorious months in this condo. It was a perfect place with beautiful views, a nice beach out front and the constant sound of the waves. It was beautiful and quiet. Great walking trails along the beach, a great local store a short walk away along with small restaurants. It is not necessary to rent a car. Public transportation is available on the highway where the store is located. Jeanelle was a wonderful owner to work with and quickly replied to my many questions. There is a lovely small resort with yoga and a spa very close to Las Olas. We loved our stay and will likely return.

Amazing Stay in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Jeanelle and Craig's apartment for over three months, and we are sad to realize that are time here is coming to an end. The apartment is both tastefully decorated and comfortable for our family--we have two boys under the age of 5. The apartment complex, Las Olas, is well maintained and very private, but only minutes to the towns of Cabarete and Sosua. Las Olas has a beautiful pool shaded by almond trees, and has its own access to a secluded beach.... it is truly beautiful here. We have found the grounds keepers and the private security guards to be exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the property manager has been very responsive as well. This a special place--we can't recommend it highly enough!

Phenomenal!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in Jeanelle's and Craig's condo was the best decisions we could have made for our Vacation in the DR. The pictures, as beautiful as they are, hardly do it justice. The Master bedroom is huge! I loved cooking in the kitchen and ate every meal on the deck. We also felt so safe. We were never concerned about leaving our door open or unlocked during the day when we went to the beach.

We were a little concerned about needing to drive but we were so glad to have our own vehicle. Driving did take some getting used to but we got into the swing of things pretty quick and much preferred having the freedom and comfort of our own vehicle.

The semi-private beach in front of the condo was one of our favorite places to hang out, The water was safe and waves were so fun to play in. It was also such a welcome break from the hustle and haggling of the beaches in Cabarete and Sosua. We also loved walking or jogging the beach trail toward Cabarete. It enjoyed drinks and some fabulous dinners at the Natura Cabana only a couple minutes walk from the condo.

We had a couple minor issues, one with the TV and one with the A/C in the master bedroom but Martin, the manager at Las Olas was fantastic. The issues were responded to and remedied very quickly.

As you read this you are probably in the process of reviewing dozens of potential properties for your vacation. We could not recommend this property highly enough. For the location, quality, comfort and price we couldn't find better. Just sayin'.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful place for 4 weeks. And just to state it up front - we did not want to leave. The Cabarete area is fantastic, beautiful beaches and lots of stuff to do. For Kite boarding and Windsurfing this i paradise.

The apartment if really nice. Very clean and spacious. Fantastic balcony with a view of the sea, every meal was enjoyed there. The area is gated and the service is good. We had cleaning two times per week which I would recommend if you use the beach a lot (Sand).

Jeanelle is the most helpful person you could imagine. She made us feel very welcome and provided us with all the information we needed. I can only recommend this to all, you will not regret it.

Just as reference point, we usually stay in 4 - 5 star hotels both on business and vacation.

Look No Further For a Condo in Cabarete

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Las Olas condos which is located between Sosua and Cabarete in the Dominican Republic. We stayed for six weeks in what we feel may be the best location if you're looking for apartment living in the DR. The condo itself was well situated, equidistant between Sosua and Cabarete (no more than a ten minute drive from either location) on a pretty much private beach. Puerto Plata airport is very close (about 20 minutes by car). The condo is modern and very well equipped with everything you'll need in the kitchen. The master bedroom is huge with an extremely comfortable king size bed and very good bedside reading lamps. The master bath has a walk in shower which was perhaps my favourite part of the condo (aside from the comfy bed) and the guest bath has a tub and shower. There is more than ample storage in all rooms in the condo and the guest bedroom has two single beds and is spacious as well. There's a beautiful terrace from which you can have a meal or simply watch the waves crashing in. Richard Hunt, the on-site property manager was extremely friendly and helpful and could be called upon for assistance at any time of the day or evening. Las Olas is located in a very safe upscale neighbourhood so there is absolutely no worry about safety. A local grocery chain called Playero is located in Sosua and it has everything you could want. If you want to go further afield to Puerto Plata (about 25 minutes drive away) there's a very large store (similiar to Canada's Superstore) called La Sirena. I would recommend a car at Las Olas, however, you can easily get around using the local minivans called guaguas for about fifty cents a ride. The guaguas will pick you up on the main road which is about a ten minute walk from the condo's location and drop you off wherever you like either in Cabarete or Sosua. I would definitely recommend Las Olas. The price is right and the owner, Jeanelle, is a sweetheart to deal with. She answered every concern either by phone or email absolutely immediately. Take my word for it, you should go here!

Cabarete is a laid back Caribbean beach village conveniently located only 20 minutes away from the Puerto Plata Airport on the north shore of the Dominican Republic. It is the perfect place to go for those who enjoy both the relaxed and adventurous lifestyles. Cabarete is spread out across the center of a gorgeous, semi-circular beach of golden sand.

For over 20 years Cabarete has hosted international windsurfing competitions and in 2000, kiteboarding started to take off as well, with the town hosting international competitions every year since. Cabarete is considered by many to be one of the top places in the world to windsurf and kiteboard, but there is so much more. You can surf, mountain bike, horseback ride, go canyoning, or just simply lie back on the beach and enjoy the sun and waves.
