About Wendy Diaz

We are a family of four living in the city; we have this beautiful beach home to rest. We rent it out when we're away. We prefer families or quiet couples, we love children and the apartment is on the first floor so elders or people with any physical challenge can easily access property. Catholic family with Catholic values.

Wendy Diaz purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Wendy Diaz chose Villas Del Mar

This is the best money can wake up to the sounds of waves in your room, the breeze is so warm and good blowing by the terrace you will never use the a/c walk 5 steps outside the terrace and you're inside a turquoise infinity pool that makes your sight get lost in the ocean right outside that has a PRIVATE beach away from the crowds. Relaxation and complete peace is the reason why you should be coming to stay with us!

What makes this apartment unique

Private beach; huge pool, Jacuzzi, BBQ, children welcome, 1st floor (no stairs separates you from pool or beach) Fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher and washer/dryer to make daily chores a breeze.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We loved the people, the history of the island, the Caribbean food and the condo. I personally hope to return within the year..."

Fabulous week in Juan Dolio!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Wendy's beachfront apartment. This was our first trip to the Dominican Republic, and staying in quiet Juan Dolio was just right for our family of 4. The AMAZING view, with steps to the pool and beach was one of best parts for me. With a quieter surf, we were able to snorkle all around the reef right in front our lodging. We enjoyed walking the beach both directions, and ate dinner at a different restaurant each night. We connected with Underwater Emotions in Boca Chica and had 3 different dive days, and the scuba experience was fantastic with Gabi & George. We also drove in to Santo Domingo and walked around Zona Colonia--wish we would have had more time to explore this charming and historical spot. I brought home a beautiful larimar necklace.

The apartment was comfortable, we had hot water for all our shower needs, and used the kitchen for breakfast and snacks. Peter, the on-site security and maintenance man, was always available and helpful. We felt safe and secure, 24-7. We would love to return!

Long walks on endless beaches; would have been nice to NOT have pool maintenance construction but that won't affect people going there now. Convenience of markets close by as well as restaurants. Took a bit of time to sort out wifi and tv....Pedro, the building supervisor was very helpful and the security guards were very pleasant.

Great place to stay in Juan Dolio

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at this apartment and it was wonderful. Everything that you need is there. From washer & dryer to all kitchen small appliances and utensils. The views are awesome and there are restaurants and small grocery store within walking distance. The complex has a 24 hr security guard as well as a resident expert named Pedro that can help with any questions. For excursions and airport transfers we use Dominican Quest. We will definitely stay again.

really lovely place

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely property. The proximity to the beach and the ease of access from the living space to the pool and from the pool to the beach is ideal. The guys who provide security and services were very kind and effective. The apartment is bright and airy and well equipped.

Previous reviews as well as people in town advised against traveling by foot along the road that leads from town to the residence at night which is inconvenient and limiting. I will add that the few times that we did walk along that road at night nothing happened.

We did find the apartment a bit musty initially but that the must went away pretty quickly when the shades were open allowing for light, and fresh air. I mention this not to discourage people, but to assure them that if they find the place musty at first not to worry.

Communication with Wendy was smooth.

This is a really nice place to stay, family friendly, beautiful, relaxing and well located.

Owner's Response: Thank you for having taken the time to review our lovely property. I know you guys enjoyed your stay a lot as you told me over the phone. Sometimes it´s so hard for people not finding anything wrong at our piece of paradise that they have to give a 4 star review (like the teachers at the university...) so I understand your 4 star review ; )

Great apartment on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Could not ask for a better spot. Spectacular views of the infinity pool and beach. This is a first floor apartment that is merely steps from the pool. Spacious 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath, full kitchen and large balcony to enjoy the views. Just a few minutes walk to restaurants and grocery store. The owner Wendy was very nice and a pleasure to work with. The onsite building superintendent Pedro was very helpful and will assist with things like bottled water purchases and trash disposal. Apartment complex is gated and has 24 hour security guards that are very friendly. The WiFi was also important to us to keep up with online classes. I have stayed in other locations in Juan Dolió where the WiFi was spotty at best but Wendy's apartment has exceptional service that even extended out to the pool area. This apartment was the perfect size and location that my family was looking for. Will definitely stay again.

Nearest Airport
30 Kilometres
Nearest Beach
Car: recommended

Juan Dolio, is a lovely small beach town for those who seek a quiet vacation by the beach with the comforts of home. Nearby you´ll find:


Located within 5-10 minutes drive we have: two golf courses (Metro Country Club and Guavaberry Country Club),


We have a water park called Los Delfines located just 5 minutes drive west from apartment...check it out!!


The impressive 'Cave of wonders' that goes down almost 800 meters


In Boca Chica, located just 15 minutes driving west from apartment you´ll find tons of activities right on the beach (water sports, horses) located right at the Pier of Hotel Don Juan in Boca Chica (fees apply for spending a 'day pass' and using the watersports of the hotel)

For those with a taste for deep sea fishing:

1) I found this tour operator offering deep sea fishing

Email or call them and make sure to tell them you will be in JUAN DOLIO, next to Capella Hotel, they should pick you up.

2) At the Pier of Hotel Don Juan in Boca Chica (15 minutes drive west from the apartment) call the hotel beforehand and ask them how you can arrange a fishing day or other water sports...I know they offer 'day pass' They have a lot of water sports, please call them directly

3) Directly in Casa de Campo, 45 minutes drive east from apartment. A bit expensive...but please call so they can inform you.

For those interested in Scuba diving:

Neptuno Dive is right next door to the apartment by the beach! one wall divide you from them!

Also, guests would take tours to go to Puerto Plata, to visit wonderful 'Ocean World' to swim with Dolphins! :

A wonderful excursion that can only happen during the months of Feb-march is whales watching!! The whales come to the warm waters of Caribbean to give birth, this happens in Samana:


Santo Domingo is the capital city and has world class malls, bars and restaurants, is pretty much like Miami. I have prepared an itinerary for visiting Santo Domingo which you´ll find in the manual. Here´s some info. about Santo Domingo shopping and restaurants:

World class stores in Santo Domingo are located at: AGORA MALL, GALERIA 360, SAMBIL SANTO DOMINGO, BLUE MALL.
