This is my second time staying un Punta Rucia and it wont be my last. I love the relaxing atmosphere and the closeness this house has to the beach - it's a 2 minute walk. The house is in front fo Blue Island Beach Club which has great food. The hosts, Nathalie and Carl were extremely warm and welcoming. If you are looking to a beach location to relax this is your home.
We stayed at Villa Nadine for 2 nights with a large group and absolutely loved it. Eric gave us all the information we needed before our arrival and responded promptly to new questions that popped up.
We used his recommended boat guy (Hector) to get out to Cayo Arena, and upon our return we sat down to a delicious Dominican meal prepared by Francesca, a sweet woman who cares for the property and cleans the house.
The rooftop deck was a great place to hang out and relax, listen to music, drink a Presidente, read, and watch the sunset. The property also has kayaks available for use!
The colmado (mini market) nearby has the basics and a larger market nearby had everything else. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need! There is some pica pollo across the street, a french restaurant nextdoor (we didn't try it), and a waterfront pizza place in walking distance. Playa Encenada with great fish is just up the road.
I could go on and on about this place! We loved it! One final note, there isn't a/c but the breeze is good, and a fan is every room. We all agreed we slept well and didn't feel hot at all! We are already looking forward to our next stay!
