We loved this place!! Booked as a winter vacation for my wife and I and our 4 grown kids. The condo has enough room to interact as a family, but enough space to have some quiet time if you need it. All linens including beach towels were furnished. Chris had a well stocked kitchen with enough pots/pans to cook if you want. He has obviously gone out of his way to try to provide anything a group traveling may need, down to beach chairs and coolers.
The condo is located in a great complex, very safe and quiet with a nice pool. The beach is a 2 minute walk through the complex. The area has many restaurants/bars, shops and groceries within blocks and are easily walkable. There is a fresh fruit truck that makes it's way around the area. Ask the locals and keep your eyes open for it.
Chris (condo owner) is great. He's very helpful and responsive but doesn't hover. We traveled into the country on Christmas Day. A few days prior to our arrival, he contacted us and asked if he could put some groceries in the condo for us since the stores would be closed when we arrived. He was waiting for us when we arrived and exchanged our money at a better rate than what was given in the local area. When we left, he change the money back to US dollars. While there, he drove us to the supermarket for groceries to save us some $$$! I can't say enough great things about him. We would definitely stay in this condo again!!!
We had a truly wonderful stay with Christopher. He goes above and beyond to make sure his guests feel welcome and at home during their stay in the Dominican Republic. Not only did he help us with transportation to and from the condo, he took us grocery shopping, helped us get our money changed over, and gave us all kinds of useful suggestions for the best places to visit in the neighborhood. The condo itself was really clean and felt like a place we could settle into for our visit. It's location is ideal as it's just a short walk to both the beach and a number of restaurants and shopping facilities. As if all that wasn't enough, Christopher worked diligently to help us book excursions during our stay. We really appreciated his time spent getting us the best experiences at the lowest possible prices. Stay with Christopher! He's the best!
Excellent location, walking distance from the beach and restaurants, drugstore, bakery and shopping mall. Chris is an excellent host, always available and willing to help. The apartment is very comfortable and totally furnished.
Will visit again.
This spacious and beautiful condo is situated right near the beach with gorgeous views from each balcony. I loved the courtyard, pool, and additions such as a pool floaty and cooler and chairs for the beach. Also having a bbq and the hammock on the rooftop terrace was fantastic! Christopher is a great host and communication was flawless. He picked me up from the airport and took me to a large market to stock up on groceries along the way. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will certainly be back! Thanks again Christopher :)
The place is literally 1 minute from the beach. The roof patio and balcony is a great addition to the perfect place itself. Everything is clean. Parking with security is on the area. The pool is very clean. Small local groceries and restaurants are nearby. But the most important part is the host - I mean, superhost. He helped us getting around and doing groceries. As well giving us tips what to visit and where to eat. We had problems with cash withdrawals, I guess we were not the only ones, but Chris helped us lending some cash. The host is an additional star to this place. Would recommend to anyone. Best value for money.
The moment this listing appeared in my search, I had a good feeling. Great communication throughout the booking process with excellent tips and suggestions. We had him pick us up from the airport and even though our flight was a bit delayed, he went out of his way to ensure his schedule matched ours. Not many hosts are like Christopher - amazing service! The unit itself was clean, spacious and quaint! The neighborhood has all your necessary stores, restaurants, cafes, beach, pool, and of course sunshine! We highly recommend the french cafe just down the street! There was not a moment when we did not feel safe. This listing is a rare find!
This condo was great. It was in a quiet location, it was very clean and within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Chris picked me up at the airport(even though it was 11:00pm at night), took me to the condo and explained everything. You couldn't ask for a better start to vacation. To top it all off, Chris ended up taking me on two different excursions. These were both off the beaten path and definitely the real Dominican Republic. I would stay at this condo again in the future.
