    Default Furniture shopping in PC

    I'm looking into buying a townshouse in Punta Cana but its not furnished. Is there a place in the area where one can buy furniture/appliances and household goods? This place is in Villas del Sol II, anyone know how far this is from the shopping area? or how much taxis cost in the area?

    Any help would be appreciated as I don't know anything about the area.

    Thanks

    I am sorry but I can't help you with knowledge of the area for buying furniture or appliances and other household goods but I would query why you are considering buying a property in an area with which you are not familiar?

    I am looking for a winter escape when I retire. This property seems to be a good deal in a fast growing area. For now I will mostly rent it out and by the time I retire it should be paid off. From what I have seen and read Punta Cana sounds beautiful and affordable. I will be visiting the area and staying at a hotel before I make any final comitments. So for now I am just researching what is available in the area.

    That makes good sense, was just trying to be protective and encouraging you to be cautious.

    Hi

    Unicane is really the only shop for all your house needs but be careful, can be a little expensive so choose wisely - they have a small shop in the Palma Real shopping mall and also a larger store on the road between the Fruisa crossroads towards the Iberstar and Riu Hotels, on the left. Also there is a rumour that Illuminair (not sure if spelt right) is coming to Punta Cana (out near the airport where the Jumbo is going I think) - my husband has looked at their shops in Santo Domingo and was really impressed with what they had to offer so things are coming to Punta Cana - it just takes a little time!!!

    Don't be stupid. Villas del Sol II is far from everything, especially from the beach. The best places to purchase good furniture for normal prices are still in Santo Domingo. If you buy a lot of things, they will carry it for free to Punta Cana the next day.

    Ilumel (furniture) and Cerarte (ceramics, bathrooms and kitchens) are supposed to be opening branches in Punta Cana. So is one of the ferreterias - (Americana?) - a department and hardware store. There are some nice looking furniture/home decor stores in Punta Cana Village IIRC.
