6 bedroom (8 beds) luxury villa located in Punta Cana Resort & Club.
Welcome to Villa Blanca – your Caribbean luxury home with Gourmet Chef!
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.
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 King bed and a full bathroom. The 2nd guesthouse, which also has a King bed and a full bathroom, is located next to the swimming pool 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, games, Nintendo Wii and books. SONOS sound system is available and guests can connect via their own smart phone by downloading the SONOS app to play their preferred music.
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.
All bedrooms have flat screen televisions with cable TV.
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 your personal 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 cleaning the villa and making the beds.
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).

Why Owner chose Punta Cana
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.

Villa Blanca Luxury
Our group was thrilled with the accommodations and services offered at Villa Blanca! The villa itself is exquisite - elegantly and luxuriously furnished, with private suites. We really enjoyed having the Chef prepare delicious gourmet meals for us on most nights. We had a range of seafood, Italian and Dominican specialties - all were scrumptious. The location is terrific (in the Punta Cana Resort area, quiet and close to fine dining) and away from the noisy tourist areas.
The Villa Manager looked after all of our requirements, and the Staff on site took great care of us.
HIGHLY recommend this Villa for a luxurious vacation!
Perfect Family Vacation (8-10 people)
Villa Blanca was a perfect spot for two families (4 adults / 4 children all under 10yrs old) to spend a week of vacation. It would also serve very well for group golf vacation (it's on the 2nd hole of a golf course). Heck, with two unused bedrooms we could have invited a third family.
The backyard/pool area was spacious enough for everyone, the beach a short golf cart ride away (the kids loved driving golf carts), and the area had numerous fun excursions (check out the ecological reserve! we also enjoyed the Bebe Catamaran trip).
The Group Palmera people were awesome in helping plan our vacation from start to finish, including day-trip excursions (thanks Janet!). Everyone we encountered upon arrival at Villa Blanca was committed to ensuring we had the best possible time (thanks Stig, John & Co).
We would highly recommend the chef, butler, and maid service. The staff was great and we ate like kings/queens all day everyday (the food had a very local flavor/presentation). Not having to worry about cooking or cleaning for everyone was a major plus. The property has a small wine refrigerator with quality wines available (about 2x US retail prices) which we felt was a nice add-on for our dinners.
There were two small negatives. First, building construction is occurring on both sides of the property. The construction was infrequent and not loud while we were there (it was not intrusive). However, the construction is certainly something to be mindful of. Second, the master bedroom shower wasn't working for our stay. Hopefully, that was just temporary.
I will definitely recommend Villa Blanca to friends. I hope to be back again soon!
Thank you for your amazing review and for choosing Villa Blanca for your family vacation. We’re very happy that you enjoyed your stay at the villa, the area and the service provided by the staff. I just wanted to reply on a few of your comments in order to clarify for future guests. WINE: Villa Blanca actually has a quite large wine fridge (in the kitchen) that fit about 150 bottles. It may not always be FULL as this depends on the guests, but it can be re-stocked as desired. Yes, wines are (unfortunately) expensive here as everything needs to be shipped in from e.g. the States. We do strive to always have a nice selection for our guests. CONSTRUCTION: The construction on both sides of the villa is going quite smoothly and (as you mentioned) the noise is not intrusive so our guests can still enjoy a relaxing time at the villa. SHOWER: As far as I understand from the villa butler, he called our maintenance company as soon as you reported that the shower in the Master Bedroom wasn’t working and they came to fix it shortly immediately. In any case, it has been resolved now.
Thank you again for your amazing review and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Best regards, Anders
Villa Blanca was absolutely perfect! The house is even more beautiful in real life. We had the best stay and everyone was so wonderful and helpful. The food was delicious.
It was absolute paradise and I hope to be able to return!
This is a palace with everything you need.
We loved this place. The management staff (Janet & James) before and during were always there for our every need. The food was awesome (Thanks Chef Axil!). John and Maria were amazing as well with making sure we had everything all day to maximize your experience. Use of golf carts made everything so close. Beautiful beaches, shopping and boat excursions were conveniently close. Highly recommend for anyone.
Dreams do come true!
This past MLK weekend, myself & 11 girlfriends rented Villa Blanca for a trip to celebrate everyone turning 30 this year. The entire experience, from initial inquiry to getting dropped off at the airport has beyond surpassed my expectations and was better than I could have ever imagined. Bianca coordinated the airport transfers and all house details with us and was so helpful and accommodating during the whole planning process. There were (4) separate arrivals & departures, some traveling from other states & everything was smooth thanks to Bianca being so detailed and thorough. When entering the house we were greeted by James, John and Maria. Aside from being blown away by how stunningly beautiful the home itself was, they were so welcoming, friendly & professional and made us feel right at home the minute we got there. We ended up booking the house chef, Axel upon arrival and it was one of the best decisions of the trip. Axel worked with us to identify everyone’s food preferences, allergies and accommodated each meal based on the activities of the day. Each morning we woke up to an amazing breakfast, coffee and juices ready when we walked downstairs. There is an incredible square table in the dining room that fit everyone perfectly. I personally am a pain (vegetarian) when I asked him for something different he was SO nice and took care of me right away. All of his food was seasoned & cooked perfectly, everyone cleared their plates each meal. Thank you for the amazing food Axel!! We stayed at the house pretty much the entire trip, there’s a beach to walk to across from the golf course, though it’s very hard to leave once you get there. You have everything you need and there were so many balconies & lounge spaces all over the property which was great for such a big group. Overlooking the lush golf course you truly are surrounded by beauty at Villa Blanca. As amazing, clean and nice the house and bathrooms were, we cannot stop saying only the best things about James, Jon, Maria, Axel, Bianca and Anders. The treatment we received when we were there was better than any resort, hotel or restaurant I’ve ever experienced. They all were so friendly and sweet, laughing with all of us and ensuring everyone was having a great time during our whole stay. They really felt like part of the trip, and made us feel like we were part of the home. We cannot thank the team at Villa Blanca enough for making our vacation so special.
Property is great with a few minor flaws. It is well located - near to good golf & two beaches.
On the plus side, the chef, butler & housekeeper provide excellent service. Chef Axel prepared some great meals. The property manager followed up with our needs on a daily basis.
Apparently,the property was recently renovated after incurring some hurricane damage. There were minor leaks in the roof & windows during heavy rains. Regulating the hot water flow while showering was a major issue. The "hot tub" was luke warm at all times. Some windows in the master bedroom needed shades or curtains.
We were told that shampoos & lotions would be provided but management had to procure these after we requested them upon arrival. Not all bathrooms were supplied with hairdryers.
We normally frequent the Ritz at St Thomas but Hurricanes wiped out that facility for the 2018 winter season. Thus, we are accustomed to 5 Star treatment and this fell a bit short of 5 Star.
We loved the DR & the location of this property. It sits on the 2nd hole of the La Cana golf course & is a short golf cart ride to two nice beaches. It is a ten minute ride to the Punta Cana airport.
I would definitely lease this property again if the above-mentioned items are rectified.
Thank you for your feedback! We’re happy you enjoyed your stay, the food and service provided by the staff.
Please rest assured that we are doing everything we can to fix the minor flaws as quickly as possible. We haven’t had really heavy rains since the hurricane and none of our previous guests who’ve stayed at the villa between Sept. 2017 and Jan. 2018 have had any issues with leaky roofs/windows. But we are looking into it and will get this fixed.
With regards to shampoo & lotions being included, we apologize for the miscommunication from our team. We normally have shampoos & soaps at the villa, but not lotions. So that was a mistake from our side and we apologize for this!
There is currently one hairdryer in the villa and (as you know), your villa manager was kind enough to lend you her personal hairdryer, so we hope that helped you out a bit. We are working on adding a couple of extra hairdryers to the villa.
We are also looking into the curtains in the master bedroom to see if any of these needs to be replaced.
Regarding the “hot tub”, there is a small heater which works. However, due to the heavy rain that we had during your stay, the pool was filled up with rain water, which overflowed into the Jacuzzi. For that reason, the small heater wasn’t able to “keep up” and heat the Jacuzzi properly, because the water from the pool continued to flow into the Jacuzzi (if this makes sense).
We thank you for choosing Villa Blanca for your vacation and do hope to have you back sometime in the future. Best regards, Anders.
The villa is located approx. 5-10 min drive from Punta Cana International Airport
