Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom Front Line Beach Condo

We invite you to share our beautiful home set right in the sand of Playa Palmera Beach the jewel of Punta Cana's Coconut Coast. Live the luxury and breathtaking views of the specific condo unit that was toured and exclaimed over on House Hunters International. See why this location was the winner.

If you weren’t relaxing on your spacious, second floor balcony you would be standing in the sand with nothing but palm trees and breaking surf in front of you and gorgeous infinity and lap pools to the side.

Enjoy staying at the end of the road in paradise with breathtaking Caribbean vistas. Watch the surf break from your 300 square foot balcony, Living & Dining rooms, Master bedroom, even the kitchen sink right here! Throw the glass doors open to fall asleep surrounded by the sound of waves.

Our richly detailed, 1722 square foot home, has two Master suites. See palm trees from each and every room. Grill dinner while sipping cocktails surrounded by palm trees and ocean. Most importantly, being truly front line, you will feel the ocean breeze day and night. AC is provided but we believe you will soon fall in love with and prefer the palm tree rustling sea winds.

This exclusive, gated community of only 30 units, has a well cared for private beach offering sun or a quiet, shady spot. 24/7, not really necessary, security means constant peace of mind. In fact, there is nothing to do but endlessly relax. Enjoy watching a sky full of stars.

Inside you will find a fully equipped apartment with AC, ceiling fans, 2 separate showers, full size washer & dryer, gas stove, oven, fridge, bottled water dispenser, 42” TVs with Cable, DVD/BlueRays, radio/CD player, alarm clocks, security safe, microwave, cookware, fully loaded kitchen and bar dishes, coffee maker, blender, rice cooker, toaster, hair dryers, iron & ironing board, linens, towels/beach towels, children’s sand toys, board games, video, music & book libraries. FREE fiber optic cable WiFi provided inside the unit. Also free WiFi by the pool. Free MagicJack phone calls to USA and Canada.

Experience the scenic drive from the Punta Cana airport on the new 4 lane highway which makes the drive fast, easy and safe by rental car or arranged pick up to arrive at a place full of comforts and few distractions yet near to a convenience store, bank, artisan souvenirs, restaurants and a water park. You can choose to never leave the beach or head toward the casinos and night life if you prefer.

If you are looking for more than lounging with a good book and snorkeling right outside your door the onsite manager can arrange golfing, dolphin swims, boating, fishing, dune buggies, windsurfing, para-sailing, horseback riding, massage, shopping trips and more.

You will never find a friendlier home away from home. Let our vacation home be your home for the perfect get away experience.

(This is a NO Smoking unit.)

About Denyse Gantenbein

We are a Canadian and Swiss couple who live in the United States but love to travel whenever we can manage it.

Denyse Gantenbein purchased this condo in 2012

Why Denyse Gantenbein chose Punta Cana

We love the friendly Dominican people. They are always so happy and fun. We have seldom met such consistently nice people in all of our travels.

What makes this condo unique

Las Dunas is small and personalized. Everyone is friendly and social yet it is quiet enough to have the beach or pool all to your self at times.

Beautiful location....

  • 4 of 5

This condo was beautiful. Right on the beach with a pool. Very quiet community. We had a great time our family of 4. Only one complaint. It's far from food shopping and restaurants. 35 minutes since you're not familiar with roads. Wish I would have had someone do food shopping for us before we arrived. Other than that, it's a great value.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you had a great time. Many of our guests really enjoy being in the quieter less busy area of Punta Cana. We think driving 20+ minutes on the new highway is more than worth the crowds and overhead planes we escape. I'm so sorry that your excessive plane delays caused you to arrive too late to shop.

Great time visiting the DR for the first time

  • 4 of 5

The condo is beautiful and very spacious. We were welcomed by the management team as soon as we arrived. We always had fresh water, hot water, and the pool was amazing. The condo has the best view out of all of them, it is literally feet from the ocean. The only draw back is that we didn't have another family with kids show up until half way through our stay and that is a chance we always take. It was very quiet and our daughter was a bit bored in the front end of our trip. There are no restaurants or really anything to do. We did book an excursion with Canopy Tours to zip line and had the best experience! I highly recommend it! We rented a car which was a complete disaster. They totally rip you off. They charge for what they call mandatory insurance. So our $134 a week car ended up to be over $300. We had a tiny car which made us feel unsafe on the roads. The locals drive 100 MPH or 15 so it is quite an experience. The office rents cars and will pick you up from the airport and that is what we would do if came again. We met a couple that owns a condo here names Libbie and Berry and they were life savors! We ended up to be great friends at the end of our trip. They knew everything of what to do and what not to do. We packed steaks, chicken, pasta, etc and everything kept fine. I would highly recommend doing this! The grocery store experience is not that great. The locals really try to rip you off with everything from getting gas in our car to buying beer so just be very aware. I felt very safe in our condo, we had a 24 hour security guard. I did get a pair of flip flops stolen that I left by the outdoor shower but I was told that normally does not happen. The unit has a ton of snorkel gear and you can walk down to Dreams and they have a huge reef you can snorkel. We did this everyday! It was incredible. Also on the way back we stopped at this little shack called tropical treasures and it's literally the only thing on the beach outside of a resort. They serve no food but they do have beer and really good pina colodas. I also got a massage there for $40 and it was great. If you are looking for a very quiet peaceful vacation this is it!

Awesome condo in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time trying a condo. We have always stayed at all inclusive resorts. I don't think we'll ever go the all inclusive route again! First of all, this condo is in a breathtaking location. Right on the beach is not an over statement. When we walked in, we were blown away that the pictures we had seen on VRBO were actually accurate!

The grounds were very nice, and the pool was beautiful. Always plenty of chairs for everyone. Never had to wake up early to put a towel on a chair! The beach was one of the nicest we had ever been on. No sharp rocks.

We went on an excursion to Saona island, which I would recommend to everyone. The most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. Even walked on the beach where they filmed Pirates of the Caribbean 2! Gorgeous. Amazing snorkeling!

Denyse's helpful information gave us the courage to try renting a car, which we had never done in a foreign country before, and I would recommend it. We shopped for our own groceries on arrival, and also went out to eat at several restaurants, so you definitely need a car. Our favorite restaurant was Jellyfish.

The condo itself was great. Clean, well stocked with anything you might need. The master bed was the most comfortable we have ever had away from home. I loved having a washer and dryer right there in the condo. We definitely overpacked. The air conditioning worked great. Plenty of hot water. The balcony is huge compared to the kind you get in a resort. We spent lots of time there playing cards, listening to music, and enjoying the view. The furniture on the balcony is very nice and comfortable.

I would recommend having a local cook come in and cook you a meal. It was delicious, and plenty of leftovers.

Overall, the best vacation we've ever had. If your looking for go, go, go, this may not be the condo for you. If you like to relax, have plenty of peace and quiet, and are willing to drive a little to get back to the great restaurants, then you couldn't find a better place to stay!
