Overview

About the property

6 bedroom (8 beds) luxury villa located in Punta Cana Resort & Club.

Welcome to Villa Blanca – your Caribbean luxury home with Famous Gourmet Chef - ERIC GREENAWALT!

Villa Blanca has been renovated in the fall of 2016!

This 10,000 sq. ft. (929 m2) luxury villa is located in the exclusive gated Puntacana Resort & Club, home to celebrities such as Julio Iglesias, Mikhail Baryshnikov and the late Oscar de la Renta.

Villa Blanca sits on 1.5 acres of land with gorgeous views of the La Cana golf course; a 27-hole championship golf course designed by P. B. Dye, with 4 oceanfront holes and 14 holes with ocean views. The private beach club with swimming pool, restaurant, bar and the renowned Six Senses Spa is just 400 yards from the villa. As a guest staying at Villa Blanca, you will have full privileges to the Puntacana Resort & Club. Please ask for more details.

The villa rental includes a 4 person in house staff including our Gourmet Chef, a butler, a maid and a gardener.

Our Gourmet Chef, Eric Greenwalt's motto is: “Life is too short not to eat well”.

For the last 6 years Eric was the exclusive chef for Elton John and Brad Paisley along with their families. Eric has also cooked for the Dalai Lama, U2, Beyonce, Madonna, Romeo Santos and many others.

Eric has trained and worked under Master Chef Alfonso Contrisciani, Chef Georges Perrier, Chef Steven Pyles, Certified Master Chef Fritz Gitschner and Chef Daniel Boulud. He is well versed in all kinds of cousin and he will cater to all allergies like Gluten free, vegan & vegeterian etc.

As you arrive at Villa Blanca through the lighted entry columns, you drive over a quaint wooden bridge with ponds and manicured gardens on both sides. The 1st guesthouse is located to your right and offers a spacious accommodation with a Queen bed and a full bathroom. The 2nd guesthouse, which also has a Queen bed and a full bathroom, is located on the back of the villa with a view towards the golf course.

The main house has two levels, and as you walk through the impressive entrance, you will immediately feel the warm, tropical breeze welcoming you home. Although the villa does have a/c in every room, you will notice that the structure and location invites you to open up the doors and to let the ocean breeze sweep through.

On the first floor you will find the spacious kitchen, a formal dining room, a sitting area and TV room with a large flat screen TV.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms. The grand master bedroom (1,000 sq. ft.) has a King size bed and a large walk-in closet with make-up counter. The master suite also features a large in-suite bathroom.

The 2nd bedroom has two Queen beds and a spacious bathroom.

The 3rd bedroom has a King bed and the 4th bedroom has two Queen beds. These bedrooms are located on the left side of the upper floor with a shared bathroom between them. The bathroom connects to both rooms and is shared between the two rooms, but each bedroom has an entrance to this bathroom directly from the bedroom.

Outside, you can enjoy the BBQ dining area, which has two beautiful stone dining tables and cast iron chairs that were handmade in the Dominican Republic. There is also a very comfortable outdoor lounge/living room, which is the perfect place for you to enjoy a cocktail at the end of the day.

During the day, you may lounge on the upstairs sun terrace or around the large, round swimming pool while enjoying the view of the golf course.

While you are staying at Villa Blanca, you will be pampered by Gourmet Chef and serviced by your very own butler, who speaks English and Spanish. He will tend to your every request. You will also have a maid to take care of all your housekeeping needs.

There is currently some construction in the neighborhood, which may give a bit of noise in the daytime between 8am-5:pm (not on Sundays).

About The Owner

The property is owned by IVI Club and operated by Palmera Travel.

Property Manager is Anders Bogebjerg

The Owner purchased this villa in 2013

Why The Owner chose Dominican Republic East

My name is Anders Bogebjerg, and I am the property manager of Villa Blanca. I am a professional (PGA) golf player and former European Junior Champion from Denmark. Before moving to Punta Cana, I was playing golf professionally in Scandinavia and Europe at Challenge Tour level. From 2000 I began working in the traveling industry every winter season for Danish traveling agencies as a golf pro, representative and destination manager. In 2002 my travels took me to the Dominican Republic, where I settled down and took over Palmera Travel together with my wife, Rawnie Hansen. We have been living in Punta Cana full time since 2005, where we specialize in customizing vacation packages for travelers from around the world. In 2008 we started managing luxury vacation properties, which is where our focus currently lies.

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

Villa Blanca is the place to go for complete relaxation. First, you are in the best of hands from the management and the staff. Anders and James made sure that we were well taken care of and went out of their way to make us comfortable. John, Junior, Maria and Fernando catered to our every desire. They were a pleasure to have on-site. We can't say enough good things about everyone.

John was very attentive to everyone's needs. He was always cheerful and ready to help. Juniors meals were fabulous! Starting with unbelievable breakfasts all the way through delicious dinners, Junior hit it out of the park! As like John, Junior was always smiling and ready to accommodate any requests we had. Maria was very pleasant and saw to it that we always had plenty of towels and clean laundry. The kids enjoyed playing a little soccer with Fernando and appreciated his help opening coconuts.

The house is fantastic and provides alot of space for large groups. It perfectly accommodated our group of 12 (7 adults and 5 children). The interior of the house was clean and with new appointments. The outdoor space is great and opens up onto the second hole of La Cana golf course. The children loved swimming around the island in the pool and the adults found the cabana to be the perfect place to find some shelter from the hot Dominican sun.

We really enjoyed our time at Villa Blanca and will definitely return! Thank you to Anders, James, John, Junior, Maria and Fernando for making our stay so wonderful.

Fantastic Stay at Villa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

No complaints! From the pre-arrival coordination, to the on property service, and the condition of the facilities everything was top notch (and as advertised). We received attentive service from Chef, Johnny, and Bianca while on property; everything we asked for was accommodated without hesitation.

Very highly recommend Villa Blanca.

Villa Bianca

  • 2 of 5

I went to Punta Cana with 9 members of my family. We were not given an opportunity to walk through the property upon arrival. Yet, upon check-out, we were told that we owed $1500 in addition to the agreed-upon rental for the week to pay for "damages." I am certain that we did NOT do anywhere near that much damage IF we did any at all. The primary "damages" listed were water damage on a couch and pulls on another fabric and even if we had done that damage, the cost they are asking is outrageous. The property manager complained about the demanding nature of the prior residents, who probably did the damages that we are being charged for. I will never go to another Homeaway.com property if the managers don't rescind these charges. The vacation was otherwise terrific. The chef and butler were marvelous, but this "after-charge" has left a very bad impression.

Owner's Response: Hi Brenda, First of all, we are happy that you had a terrific vacation and that you thought the chef and butler were marvelous. We are very sorry that you were left with a bad impression due to the after-charges which were necessary for us to apply, due the damages that had occurred during your family’s stay at the villa. We do give all our guests the opportunity to walk through the property upon arrival to inspect everything. Even if we do not physically walk through the villa with you, we certainly hope and appreciate that any damaged items (furniture, etc.) that you find in the villa upon your arrival are immediately reported to the villa staff in order to take this into consideration. When you filled out the check-in form upon your arrival, you would have seen the note on the form specifically asking if you had any comments about damages upon check-in. You did not add any notes for us to take into consideration at the end of your stay and your checkout. With regards to the costs, we did the best we possibly could to get the best and lowest price to fix the damages in order to help you as well. In fact, we had over USD 3,000 in repairs to furniture after your departure, but we tried to be fair and help you by only asking you to cover half. Please note that we do go through the villa after each guest, and any new damages are charged to the last guest and not to the next guest coming to stay at the villa. If you should decide to go with another rental property in the future, we do hope that you will take the time to walk through the property to make a thorough inspection, note and report any damages that you see – just like you would when you rent a car. Should you decide to come back and stay in one of our villas, we will certainly do our best to assist you with this in any way that we can. Thank you.

Beautiful Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were welcomed by the butler, maid and propert manager. Everyone was nice and friendly, the fact that our butler was able to travel with us was helpful because most locals speak only Spanish and he was able to translate to make sure no one was getting over on us. The villa offered a chef that cook 3 meals a day for a little as 26$ a person a day!! How wonderful is that...the Villa has a coordinator that will book all your activities and transportation for free so there is no need for a travel agent when booking a trip there. The villa was nice and clean at all times and everything is changed out by the maid everyday as if your were living in a hotel...the property was well kept by locals who came to clean the pool and do yard work...the Villa also has a guest house and pool house outside with 3 bathrooms and each room inside the house has full bathrooms...this is definitely the perfect vacation spot for a group trip with friends and family!! I would definitely book again and again!!
