Wendy's beach house is a luxury. Relaxing, charming, and secluded. I truly enjoy staying in this condo. The view is amazing, the house was clean and Pascual is a nice man who diligently works around the establishment. The pool is beautiful and thoroughly maintained. Wendy gave us great selection of activities to do and restaurants to visit and their were all great. We had some bathroom issues, but that did not subtracted the amount of fun and enjoyment we had on this trip. We would definitely come again for a second or third time.
I loved Wendy's condo. It was quiet, clean and everything we needed for a relaxing few days. Very easy to find with her directions. I had a small problem with Pascual, the man in charge of the day to day operations but that was not Wendy's fault nor did it detract from the overall great experience. The pictures are accurate. The toilet in the master bath was leaking but I was able to make it work.
The only suggestion I would have is to have a few more staples available in the condo. For example, it would be really nice to have had some salt and/or sugar.
I would encourage people to stay there and I hope to be back!
Hi Kristin, thank you for your words...I´m sorry about the toilet...I believe it has been fixed already, so sorry!!! As for salt and sugar...I left coffee and sugar, I can swear it...perhaps you did not find it...I´ll make it up to you, please come back and I´ll give you one free night :D
I would like to thank you very much. Your apartment is very nice. Beautiful pool. Near the sea. Beautiful beach. We really liked it in front of you. We will come to you again. Have a nice day!
We loved this place! Beautiful beach, awesome pool, and everything that we needed right down the road. If you want to vacation in Juan Dolio, I would highly recommend staying at Wendy's place!
The apartment was ideal for a relaxed beach vacation. The building is right on the sand. The bedroom and living room open onto a private deck from which you can access a large communal deck w/ lots of seating and a gorgeous pool. From the deck you can just jump down onto the beach. Although the deck was communal, during my April trip, it was empty during the week so the whole thing felt like ours.
Fun restaurants nearby with tasty food options.
The space was warm, safe and inviting. Wendy was a really great host- she responded to all of my concerns by email before and after the trip and greeted us at the apartment on the first day. The payment (and deposit refund) was quick and easy through paypal. Staying at this place really made our trip.
Note of advice - make sure you get tips on how to get to the apartment, there's another development nearby with the same name but you won't be able to get in.
Wendy and her husband are gracious hosts. From the very first inquiry to when we left the house, she was always responsive and communicative about the house.
The pictures of the house are completely accurate. The location right on the beach with a pool CANNOT be beat. You literally walk out of the house to the pool and then right onto the beach. If you're looking for a stress-free vacation where you just lay by the pool or beach, this place is awesome. There are beach vendors who try to sell you things, so you can either ignore them or go onto the beach to buy stuff. It was nice to have fresh coconut water every day, so having a vendor selling cocos was pretty awesome.
A few tips: if you're not familiar with DR, you should probably rent a car and make sure someone speaks enough Spanish to get you around, as this is a very local location. We didn't have a car, but we did have a Spanish speaker and were able to hire a taxi for everything we needed, but had she not been with us, it may have been a bit more difficult. Also, remember that this is not a resort, so there is a chance that some things may go awry ... but there is a SUPER responsive superintendent on-site and Wendy will go out of her way to make sure whatever it is, is taken care of right away.
Overall, the staff, security and the hosts were very good to us. We are already talking about when we'll return. It's just that great!!
After a few messages with the host I should have know that this place was NOT the right choice but after reading the previous reviews i decided to book. I informed her that it would be 2 couples (4 guests) that would be staying. Her 1st question to me prior to accepting the booking was if we were "same sex" couples or "regular" couples. Well assuming a "regular" couple meant straight i informed her that we were in fact "regular" couples. She immediately accepted the reservation and then apologized and tried to justify her reasons for asking what type of couples we were.
We did arrive (all 4 of us) and the place is exactly as described. It was actually nicer then the pictures depicted. We met Wendy and her husband and they seemed like very nice people. They showed us the place and informed us of the house rules and were sure to mention the $600 security deposit (we will get to that later).
There was a security guard on premise and a few other maintenance workers. The main guy (he lived on premise) was particulary annoying in that he was always hanging around waiting for a tip every time we had a question or needed help. After the first tip this got rather old and annoying. The other maintenance worker was very nice and helpful went to the store for us and expected nothing. We did tip this gentleman well and even cooked for him.
The other people who lived at the building appeared annoyed that there outsiders staying in there paradise. Not very friendly at all which can be expected.
On the day of checkout the host was acting very strange. She made accusations that we were bringing "local women of bad reputation" into her apartment and she would meet us at 1PM to review the apartment and again referenced the security deposit. I was stunned to say the least. I informed her that we were with the same people we arrived with and that this was completely false and i have been insulted. I was unwilling to wait around till 1PM and informed the host that i will leave the keys with her staff. Again she mentioned the security deposit. I informed her that the apartment is being delivered the same way it was received and i expect a 100% refund on the security. She did not respond.
There are many options to stay in Juan Dolio. I would never stay here again. This is just my experience. Best of luck to all!
As this property is not a hotel but our family home, we have certain rules
that includes not bringing visitors, "cousins" or "girls" into the
apartment. This guest arrived with his male friend and stayed for the time
agreed upon (3 nights) and then requested to extend their stay; I accepted
right away but then I was informed by employees on premises that guests
broke the rules and were bringing girls into my home; as a result to this I
refused to extend the stay and asked them to vacate apartment and told them
the reason, even though I had to made a throughout cleaning and buy new sheets.
