We are a fully retired active 70 year old well travelled couple who walk a lot. We have just finished a 2 month holiday in Hua Hin Thailand and we have started investigating our next 2 month winter holiday away from the UK next year in the Dominican Republic. Most probably in Punta Cana or any adjacent area. We are not quite sure of the topography of this area as we have only been to the Dominican Republic once before when we stayed at the Jack Tar resort in Puerto Plata in March 2006. We have not fixed the dates yet, but we are flexible from 15 January to 15 March 2014. We are looking for a high quality self catering villa/apartment/condo call it what you like.
We have the following requirements:
- Must be in a quiet area where we will not be disturbed by traffic noise.
- Private pool.
- Close to a nice beach with sun bed availability without having to get there at 6.00 am to stake our claim. This is where we will most likely do a lot of walking, up to 5 or 6 miles per day.
- Close to shops for self catering needs (breakfast/snacks) although we will most likely dine out in the evenings, 90% of the time.
- Close enough to a local town where there other forms of entertainment in the evening, where we do not need car rental to reach it. In other words we do not wish to be isolated.
We have a lovely house in the UK and value quality accommodation at a reasonable price and will look after what we rent as if it was our own. We are looking at paying no more than $2000 (£1350) per month that is of a good size (not cramped for 2 months) for 2 of us and would hope that this price would be negotiable (downwards) as we are considering a 2 month stay.
If anyone has suggestions and wish to contact me privately I do not have a problem with a genuine behind the scenes approach.
