“Great beachfront condominium!”

person found this review helpful

Everything about this rental was as described in owner information and all other reviews I've seen posted. If you prefer a condo over an all inclusive this is the Way to go. Ilia, the owner, could not have been more helpful or responsive. The condo is spacious with great balcony and amazing view. The beach in front of condo is beautiful and chairs were plentiful. The area felt safe and super convenient to have small market and several restaurants right outside of the condo complex.

“Very impressive!”
Reviewed 20 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

people found this review helpful

Myself, husband, and 2 young children spent almost a week at the condo, and loved it! Before booking, I was going back and forth on what's better staying at an all inclusive where we are crammed in one room but you have food and entertainment included, or doing the condo where you have the space but on your own for the other things. We decided that space was most important to us, and booked the condo as it's a nice hybrid.

The complex where the condo is situated is big, and nice. The condo itself is beautiful! Nicely decorated with white modern furniture. The kitchen and living room have an open floor plan, the balcony overlooks the ocean, and all 3 bedrooms are a comfortable size. The condo also includes beach towels, and beach toys (a must with kids). Also the maid comes every other day, which is nice because it didn't make me feel like i had to do all the cleaning while on vacation, but also for the owner, I'm sure it helps in keeping the apartment as clean and in as good shape as it is.

The night we got there was our travel day, so we pre arranged for Mary to cook for us. Best idea ever! The food was delicious, and well received after a long day on the road. Tip- we asked our driver to stop at the supermarket before getting to the condo, and bought the big items like gallons of water (you'll need this!), plus other basic for the week that would be to heavy to carry on you own. The area outside of the condo within 5 minutes walking distance also have bakeries, restaurants, and a small grocery store.

During the day, we alternated between spending time at the beach, the pool, or inside the condo (to escape the heat). One day we did a water catamaran excursion with Hispaniola Aquatic Adventures (look them up, and thank me later), and they were fabulous! The condo and the water excursion made our trip.

The owner, Ilia, is also very responsive. You never know what you're getting when you book online, or whether the reviews you're reading are legit, but those concerns quickly disappear when you realize how responsive Ilia is. Even while on vacation, she was able to get back to us with a few minor question that we had. Overall, we loved our stay, and if we're back in the area, would stay here again!

“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

This was our first trip to the Dominican Republic. Having used Flip Key several times in Europe and the USA I felt confident in booking this condo. The apartment and the location are perfectly represented in the add on Tripadvisor.

This place is amazing. It has a huge balcony with great furniture that allows you to stare out at the sea and fall peacefully asleep. The kitchen is well equipped and we used it daily. Each bedroom has an air conditioner as does the great room. We used the bed room air at night and left the doors and windows open for the rest of the house.

There is a small market accessible from inside the gated community. It had everything we needed except fresh fish. We never did find this however, there is an outstanding beach front restaurant next door that will sell you grilled grouper, plantains and a rum n coke for $10 USD. It is only open during the day but great people and great food. Outside the community just a few steps are several restaurants and bars. We found Citrus to be very good and had dinner there three nights.

We signed up for a couple of excursions. I found them both to be very reasonable. A highlight is a cruise to Isola island for $50 each. An all day excursion that includes snorkeling, a great barbecue lunch, visit to a shallow bay to relax, beautiful jungle like atmosphere, beaches and all you can drink rum.

Be prepared, it is very very hot away from the sea. It is the Caribbean also so if you have no Latin American experience it is not so clean as say south Florida. Punta Cana is not too bad but Santa Domingo compares only to Mumbai in my experience. Just an FYI for those who might expect the streets to be pristine.

There is high end shopping and very affordable shopping as well. I think the San Juan mall Polo and Guess stores are priced the same or less than those in the USA. There is a very high end mall adjacent to the Hard Rock / Outback restaurants. It was very expensive.

To close, the value received for this rental was outstanding. Lilia took very good care of us. She arranged safe reasonable driver for us and responded in minutes to every question we had via whatsapp. The home is very luxurious, the price is great, the beach is fantastic. I highly recommend this for a beach vacation.

“Wonderful Property and Experience”
Reviewed 7 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed 10 days at this beautiful condo. Everything looked just like to pictures and the beach is incredibly close.

Ilia was easily accessible for any questions which arose and always answered back right away. Mary (the maid) was very sweet and, although she did not speak english, we were able to communicate with her without any issues. Also, the Ilia arranged for a driver for airport pickup and drop off which worked out great. We stopped at the supermarket on the way from the airport to the condo and the driver gave us his discount card for the store.

We did not rent a car and found numerous places to eat and buy foodstuffs just outside the condo complex. We went on one snorkeling excursion and they picked us up right from the condo.

Whether we were at the beach, eating out, sitting on the balcony or just watching TV, we found this vacation to be excellent and would not hesitate to recommend it to someone.

“Awesome Beach Condo”
Reviewed 21 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016
3
people found this review helpful

My family stayed at this 3rd floor condo facing the beach in March 2016. It is located in the Playa Turquesa Ocean Club gated complex in Building J. This was a perfect setting for enjoying Bavaro and Punta Cana. It was right on the beach and provided armed security, plus was right in the heart of town of Bavaro where there were many restaurants within a short walking distance, some right outside the complex.

After going through the security gate, we stopped at the main lobby and put a deposit down to get our guest cards that identified us as staying at the complex. We needed these to get back in after leaving the complex. Across from the lobby was the back entrance to the mini mart that was on the main street outside the complex which was very convenient for picking up quick items without having to go to the supermarket.

An elevator provided a quick trip up to the condo from the small, open lobby area in Building J next to the parking area. There are 3 steps or so between them, so lugging our luggage was relatively easy. There are paved paths that connect all the buildings and the pools and beach area. We had a pool with a swim up bar right outside our building which could be seen from the covered deck.

Building J was about 50-100 feet to the beach area where there is a covered beach bar with seating and where some live music would occur in the evening hours. There are ample beach loungers available in the sun, but not too many under the covering of the open beach bar.

The beach itself was pretty awesome, but had a bit of seaweed floating around on occasion. This is actually common to the area and it seemed to be less in front of the condo instead of other areas as we walked along the beach to check out the small beach restaurant bars along it. The water was perfect to complement the 85 degree (high) air temperature and sun that we had all week (aside from a couple short rain showers in the morning)

The condo itself was spacious and easily accommodated our family of 5. The beds were comfortable and each bedroom had a full bath and plenty of closed space (one with a safe). The bathroom had ample hot water as needed and decent pressure for the 3rd floor. The kitchen/ dining room/ living room main area had sliding doors that opened up to the deck with a glorious view of the beach and ocean.

The building is situated at an angle, so while affording a great ocean view, it also allowed a view of the pool area which was to the side of the building. The deck had a sofa, a couple of loungers, and a table with 4 chairs. Aside from the living room, the front bedrooms opened up to the deck also. It had shade from the deck above, and we would only get sun usually from the 2 ends not directly from the ocean side which allowed us to be out on it at anytime.

Overall, I would rate the condition of the condo as very good, and I was very pleased with it. It does have bottled drinking water, modern appliances, washer/dryer, and enough dishes and pots to cook, but we preferred to eat out most of the time. It also has a toaster oven and coffee maker for quick breakfast stuff.

There was a housekeeper that attended to us every other day named Mary. She was a very nice person and would arrive at the condo at the time we prearranged with her. She would clean, change the linens, and towels and do laundry. By the way, the condo provides plenty of pillows and plenty of towels, some that have the condo number and can be taken outside, so there is plenty of wash to do, so be generous with Mary. Additionally, you can arrange for Mary to buy the groceries for and cook you an variety of dinners, so if that is something that you would enjoy, take advantage of it.

Another great benefit is that the owner offers to set you up with a local driver to pick you up and drive you around when needed. Since we rented a vehicle at the airport, we did not avail ourselves of this option, but we are seasoned drivers having driven extensively in the Dominican. Also, she knows a neighbor that can set you up with excursions. So if you haven't made arrangements or don't know what's available to do in Punta Cana contact her.

And lastly, we met the owner after a few days there on the weekend. She is a lovely person who is very responsive and very helpful. She was able to help us get some photos that we paid for on one of our excursions when we had a problem with the delivery of the CDs. She was always in contact with us and making sure that we had all the information we needed. She was a pleasure to meet and deal with.

I tried to provide as much info as I could upfront so if you are reading this, you can get a good idea of what to expect. I would highly recommend this condo, and its setting for those that are curious as to what Dominican life is like and do not want to be contained in an all-inclusive resort. I've been there/done that and prefer to be around local people while enjoying the natural beauty the area offers. Enjoy!
