If you love Punta Cana and all-inclusive resorts aren’t your thing, you should definitely check out the Playa Turquesa Ocean Club. Located on Bavaro Beach, this condominium complex is a piece of heaven at an affordable price.
I found this particular condo on VBRO.com. It’s owned by a Canadian couple who purchased it after having visited Punta Cana and falling in love with the area and its people. This pet-friendly unit has a truck-load of amenities: 2 swimming pools (including one with a swim-up bar;) 2 children’s pools, wifi, satellite TV, 24-hour security, close to shopping, and is only 20 minutes from the airport.
The price is fantastic: During high season, you pay $845 per week/$1500 (U.S.) for two weeks, which includes cleaning service. For an additional fee, a English-speaking transfer service to and from the airport is provided.
More photos and customer reviews are available at VBRO.com.
This is definitely going on my bucket list.
