4 Bedrooms, 6.5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 4 -18

A very large 5 building villa compound (approx 8,000 sq. feet) overlooking the par three 7th Green of Cap Cana's prized Jack Nicklaus golf course, Punta Espada, where the PGA Champions Tour has been held for three (3) years. There are Southeastern views of the ocean and Trump Farallon Mountain to the West. The 5 buildings consist of the main building with a large Great Room (Living Room, Foyer & Dining Room), Large gourmet kitchen, 2 en suite servants quarters and laundry/utility room and a half bath. One of the servants quarters is available for extra staff and contains bunk beds and air-conditioning. The other servants quarters is home to your very own live-in maid. A cook/ nanny/ butler/ driver, as well as additional servants can also be obtained if needed.

The other 4 villas are en suite master bedrooms. 2 of them have 2 Queen Size beds.

Villa / en-suite Bedroom Outline:

1) One King Bed & Full Size Sofa Sleep

2) Two Queen Beds

3) Two Full Size Bunk Beds (Twin-over-FULL)

4) Two Queen Beds

One has two bunk-beds with full/double size lower beds and a bathtub shower. The remaining villa is the grand master bedroom with a living area with a pull-out sofa sleeper and direct views of the 7th Green and Ocean.

In the center of the property is a private gunite swimming pool, oversized Gazebo and then a gunite Hot Tub and large deck overlooking the 7th Green and Ocean to the South. The property is situated on a 20 foot bluff so the views are panoramic while providing privacy at the same time.

The grounds were customized with ramps to allow for wheelchair accessibility around the villas, pool, gazebo and hot tub deck.

A four seater golf cart is also included (as well as the live-in housekeeper).

This house sits on the prestigious and exclusive Jack Nicklaus Punta Espasa golf course. The resort is 30,000 square acres. You can chip onto the 7th Green from the backyard. Cap Cana also boasts the largest inland Marina in the Caribbean.

About Gary Bierfriend

We love going to the Ocean-View Golf-Front Cap Cana Oasis Villa with our family and friends. We average about 12 weeks annually at the villa with our three young girls. Accordingly, it is maintained and upgraded as custom HomeAway from home, second-home; rather than a mere rental property. We often fantasize about relocating from the Hamptons' to Punta Cana. We know the resort and area very well.

Gary Bierfriend purchased this villa in 2008

Why Gary Bierfriend chose

It's the Pebble Beach of the Caribbean but much easier to get to with more reliable weather :) ... The flights from NY are 3 1/2 hours and the resort is ten minutes from the airport. The convenience of being in the Caribbean in a pristine area is incredible. We are overlooking Jack Nicklaus' 'Signature' Punta Espada trademark Bear Paw Hole (7th Green) with Ocean views on the horizon. It's a quick five minute scoot over to the private beach club on our fun golf cart in which our eldest little daughter drives us. The staff is wonderful and the weather is great year-round.

What makes this villa unique

Golf Front View - 7th Hole (Bear Paw green's)

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

This was one outstanding vacation at the villa. Starting right from our arrival being greeted by Daniel the chef (not a cook) every meal breakfast, lunch and dinner where better than the last. Miguel the butler was there whenever we wanted. All done with a smile. Luz the housekeeper was never disappointing. The villa was always spotless and clean.

The villa itself was spacious and met all of our needs. The pool, the cabana, the bedrooms all spacious perfectly appointed.

When we left we felt as if we where leaving family members.

We will be back.

What a time was had!!!

  • 5 of 5

Four couples, six nights, pure enjoyment. We could NOT have had a better time. The villa is just so comfortable, so relaxing. We had Chef Daniel onsite for our stay, and he was truly magnificent. Alejandro, the property manager, was always in touch, making sure our every need was met. Every aspect of this trip was exceptional. Thanks, Gary!

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to let you know that our stay last week at your beautiful Cap Cana Oasis completely exceeded our expectations! We searched for many months for something special to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary and your beautiful villa seemed to fit our family perfectly. The house itself is absolutely perfect and beautifully appointed. The bedrooms were immaculate and the pool and cabana areas were just splendid. Alejandro seamlessly organized our transportation from the airport and we were greeted by the always smiling Luz who had cool scented towels for us when we arrived. Miguel had the first of what would be seemingly endless frozen drinks for us and Chef Daniel had a fantastic spread waiting. We couldn't have asked for a better welcome. What unfolded over the week was very special. Your staff did more than just their jobs, they made our stay exceptional. Luz must work around the clock and do it invisibly as she was always a step ahead of us though I rarely saw her. The pool area was clean upon our waking and she cleaned our rooms daily leaving freshly laundered and pressed clothes for us every day. Miguel quickly became a friend and he too was always a step ahead. His twice daily visits to us with special drinks around the pool was much anticipated. He was so poised and perfect with every presentation it was very impressive to watch.Hiring Chef Daniel turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip. Not only was his food excellent but he has a true passion for what he does and it shows. His soups were divine as was the paella and the lobster and well, everything! With Alejandro's help my parents were surprised one night with balloons and a special cake with sparklers to mark their anniversary which was very special. Luz, Miguel and Daniel were all involved in the presentation and made it a very special moment. On our last night after dinner we asked Luz and Miguel to show us how to salsa and well we all ended up dancing-even the teenage boys which shocked us. This was truly the best vacation any of us have ever had. Many people do their jobs well but only a few do the extra things that make an experience truly exceptional. Your staff are amongst those few and are what made our visit so very special. Thank you for providing such a memorable experience and we hope to visit again soon!

A Disappointing Stay

  • 3 of 5

Wonderful house. Great nooks for quiet reading or gathering. We lived out on the gazebo & dined there every night. The staff was outstanding but communicating without knowing basic Spanish was sketchy. The property manager checked in twice a day & did our grocery shopping for a fee. A necessity since there were no rental cars available & the only means of getting around the 4 person golf cart or car service. We had a minor issue with items on receipts that we hadn’t asked for or used which was resolved. The furnishings were tasteful and comfortable but needed some TLC to refresh them. Bed pillows were a mixed bag. Cushions had sagged & were worn on the living room couch & some outdoor chairs. A huge stain on the rug in the bunk bedroom was unattractive to see. The “full” beds in that room are more like 3/4 beds & very short. Outdoor cushions on the gazebo & lounge chairs needed cleaning or replacing from stains, cigarette holes or bird droppings that were never cleaned off. Although each morning toss pillows outside were straightened out, the debris behind them remained. The house itself needed attention. Roof tiles were missing & not replaced until several days into our stay when we pointed them out. It was clear no one had noticed or cared. Mildewed wood framing under the roofline needed power washing & invited a woodpecker to pick away at it each morning. Two long metal wands for the gazebo shades were very rusty. Hot tub tiles were missing or on the bottom. We frequently stubbed our toes on a raised deck board in the gazebo and an outlet cover on the floor that had once been glued down. Looking back at the photo gallery, it became clear the photos were dated. The “panoramic” ocean view is now blocked by vegetation & new houses. While the house is a great spot for large groups who want to do nothing but hang out together, it’s quite remote but for a couple of hotels a 10-15 minute golf cart ride away, the expensive golf course & the Carleton Beach which you had to pay to use. A car trip to the all-inclusive resorts was pricey & the access was only for their guests. The Golden Bear Lodge was a ghost town & the spa permanently closed. The property manager said the caves had mosquitos. The zip-lining was over boring terrain. The weather was fabulous & we made our own fun; but as frequenters of the Four Seasons and Rosewood resorts, the high bar they set was, to our great disappointment, not matched by this home or its desolate location.

Gorgeous Property. Amazing for Groups. Incredible

  • 5 of 5

First off Gary, the owner of the beautiful Cap Cana property, was very easy to connect with and made the process of arranging a stay for 17 people completely seamless including payment/invoicing.

Not only is the property situated in a great area that is close to the airport but the staff is really first-class. From Alejandro helping arrange groceries and excellent meals to Miguel & Luz being the sweetest in making sure everyone was well taken care of.

The communal area allowed for plenty of space for different areas to hang while the dining room more than accommodated our group.

I highly suggest to hire the chef. He was unreal and very much catered to all dietary restrictions while doing it all with a smile and fun tunes.

Thank you again Gary! I look forward to visiting your home again as one of the best experiences in my 12+ VRBO stays around the world.
