About the property

Spacious 1 Bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, 2nd floor, Sleeps 4 with sofa-bed

Tropical Tranquility is the name we chose for our condo because it is away from it all. A calming place where Mother Nature comes to rest! If you're looking for natural beauty and serenity, this is where to find it! The destination of “Punta Cana” is generally composed of the several tourist friendly towns, along with many all-inclusive beach resorts. We are located in the peaceful suburban gated condo complex of White Sands, which is about 3 miles from the often noisy, crowded ‘downtown’ condo complexes. It is quiet, peaceful and the perfect runaway from life.

Open one of sliders onto the very large covered balcony and look out over the stream below while enjoying the gentle ocean breezes. The view from the balcony is to write home about. You can watch different species of birds as you look out over the lush tropical setting. You won’t worry about other condo rentals looking into your balcony as our unit faces a retired golf course for ultimate privacy. Sit and relax at the new porch furniture; cook your meal on the gas grill; enjoy a book; smoke a cigarette or cigar; sit by candle light and listen to the sounds of nature. Courtesy local cell phone and wireless internet are yours to use with your personal electronic devices such as iPad or laptop to stay connected to home via facebook and emails. Store your devices and valuables in the high tech electronic laptop safe while you are out and about.

Enjoy new living room furniture including new sleeper sofa, as well as dual zone central air conditioning with separate settings for living room/kitchen and for the master bedroom. Or turn on the ceiling fans and open the screened doors to let the warm tropical breezes in. This oversized 1 Bedroom/ 2 full bath condo is well equipped with everything you need. Quality finishing materials abound the condo, like the granite counters, marble floors & solid hardwood throughout with a large back balcony accessible from 2 sets of sliders. This condo is located on the second floor and sleeps four.

Our condo is family owned and managed by an English speaking Property Management Company, who are very conscientious of your stay. They will assist you with very personal treatment and are always available to help.

Your 6 minute walk to our private beach is through the clean, safe, well maintained and lighted paved path of the Punta Cana Princess resort. You will not be exposed to stray dogs or street peddlers. Our White Sands private beach is beautiful, wide and full of tropical palm trees you can set under and relax with complementary use of lounging beach chairs. It is no wonder that some of the more upscale resorts are neighboring our beach! Too many water activities to mention.

If you need a change of pace from the beach, our condo is located in the building directly next to the beautiful and recently renovated pool and cabana area. Go ahead and relax on the lounge chairs and be sure to bring your cooler full of drinks and food before going to work on your tan. Here you can move your lounge chair under the large shaded cabana area when you need a break from the tanning.

The nearby towns of Bavaro, Cortecito & Los Corales are the towns with many locally owned businesses just outside the nearby all-inclusive resorts. Other amenities including restaurants, nightclubs, & casinos, the Cocotal Country Golf Club & the Palma Real Mall, a movie theatre, Intl. brand name stores, wine-tapas, sushi, pizza, & tons more are a short (car) drive away! At the new San Juan Shopping Mall you'll find a grand supermarket, several brand name stores, a Pizza Hut, IMAX theatre & more. Public transportation to & from Bavaro, Cortecito & Los Corales is available.

Prepare your own meals and drinks after visiting the local Super Pola grocery store. Sometimes a comfortable air conditioned taxi ride to a local restaurant and home again is what you need to cap off your day. If so, the taxi stand is a short 2 minute walk from your front door. You can also walk next door to an area resort and purchase a buffet dinner. Since you are a guest of ours at White Sands, this resort allow you to purchase a day or night pass to their facilities for discounted rates.

It is recommended to fly directly into Punta Cana Intl. Airport (PUJ) & prearrange with us transportation with a driver who knows the area well. Most public taxi drivers are expensive and only know where the resorts are & not the names of condo communities.

We have lots of ideas for things to do while you are on holiday. Let us know your interests so we can suggest some tours.

Please note: HOMEAWAY property insurance is available for USA citizens for only $59 and will cover up to $1500 damage to the condo. Security Deposit of $300 for damage is refunded in 7 days if damage free for International guests.

Quiet, Peaceful & a Beautiful Beach

  • 4 of 5

The unit was very nice! full kitchen, nice open living space. Cindy & Art were the best. They came and picked us up at the airport with a sign! That was special. They took us to the grocery store so we could shop for our week stay there. We used the air conditioning at night. Most days we walked to the beach and down the beach and up the beach. So incredibly beautiful. We spent 1/2 day at the pool in the complex, it was getting too hot to sit out on the deck area so we moved to the covered area, very nice. We BBQ'd on the grill that was on our back deck. the view of the canal and trees and landscaping was so pretty. There wasn't any restaurants nearby, we ate 2 nights at the Punta Cana Princess Buffet. You would have to get a ride to town in order to go to a restaurant or bar. We were staying for 6 days but had mainly Sunday - Thursday to go places and do things so we feel we got in some culture, a lot of beach time, scuba diving, & shopping. Kathryn answered a lot of questions for me before we got there, and I am very grateful for all her knowledge. Thank you Art & Cindy and Kathryn for making our stay so wonderful.

Vacation was very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to the beach was great. Condo looks exactly like the pictures. You will want for nothing and I mean NOTHING in the condo. Every appliance, dish, etc... even up to beach towels are in the condo. People in area are extremely friendly and helpful. We felt very safe. Even fell asleep with patio doors open, with this beautiful breeze blowing. Cindy and Art was amazing. On arrival, they offered to take us to the store without us asking. They were a wealth of information from places to eat whether it was local food you were craving, to a restaurant like Hard-Rock, places to obtain souvenirs and even how to negotiate prices. Cindy and Art are two of the most honest people, extremely helpful and does not "hover" but they are there, ready to help or give information when you may need it. It was the most relaxing vacation that we had to the point that we would want to return.

THANKS Cindy and Art for making our stay amazing and Thank you Kathryn for sharing your Tropical Tranquility with us.

great vacation!

Dear Katie!

We loved our 2 week vacation at your condo. Location was perfect. allowing us to walk a few minutes every day to a wonderful beach.

The kitchen is indeed very well equipped ; we enjoyed preparing meals, also the option to dine & wine at Princess is a huge plus. We would like to thank again to Cindy & Art for their gracious help we received . They were always there for us to take us around, and answer questions.

We will be back.

Many thanks for welcoming us in your condo. We really enjoyed it very much. It was comfortable with all the things that you would expect to see in your own apartment, close to the beach, very clean pool, a beautiful garden, coconut trees everywhere and the loveliest and kindest property manager that I have ever met, so a special thanks goes to Cindy and her husband who were always there for us.

Thanks once more.

We hope to see you again very soon.

Y &Y

I would go back to this spot. It was quiet, beautiful and well kept. Cindy and Art were very helpful and friendly. We felt entirely at ease here. Most days we had the pool to ourselves. The walk to beach was short and the beach was great. We made use of the nearby resort for a couple of dinners which were excellent. So nice to just spend some peaceful days enjoying this pretty place. If I had to make one suggestion, it would be to add a decent CD player stereo. Otherwise, all our needs were met.
