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 Gourmet Chef!

Villa Blanca has been renovated in the fall of 2016 & 2017!

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.

Why The 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.

Perfect family vacation at Villa Blanca!

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational family of 8 adults and 3 children stayed for 2 amazing weeks at Villa Blanca and it was absolutely wonderful. The villa is so beautiful and very spacious. The best part is definitely the swimming pool and adjacent outdoor lounge where we spent most of our time. The bedrooms are super comfortable and everything is kept nice and clean my Maria (the maid).

We ate like royalty every day thanks to our fantastic Chef Axel and the delicious food he served - in abundance! And our super butler, John, served delicious piña colada by the pool and our gardener, Fernando, was kind to get us fresh coconuts several times during our stay.

The location of the villa is perfect. Just a 5-7 min walk and you're on the beach by the golf clubhouse. We had a couple of golf carts to drive around the resort and could easily go over to Playa Blanca... I enjoyed morning walks on the beach and watching the sunrise over the ocean. The resort where the villa is located is very safe and clean and it was fun to walk around the neighborhoods and check out the million dollar mansions!

I would definitely recommend Villa Blanca for a family vacation, leisure or even a golf vacation.

Wonderful 50th anniversary celebration.

  • 4 of 5

The property was lovely - clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated with comfortable beds. The pool area is beautiful and was in constant use. But, the staff, John, Axel, Maria, and James were over the top and felt like like family. The were attuned to our every need. The meals were outstanding and Axel provided lots of little extras - snacks around the pool, fresh pineapple juice for pool-side cocktails, and freshly made guacamole. If he heard us mention something, it appeared. James made arrangements for anything we wanted, including transportation for my sister and brother-in-law to come from another resort to have dinner with us at the house. They did not want to return to their resort. John and Maria meet our every need before we even knew we needed something.

Thank you to everyone for making our 50th anniversary celebration an event we will always treasure.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our kids and another family. Everyone absolutely loved the house. We spent a ton of time in the pool, and ate in most of the time due to the great food provided by the chef, Axel. The beach is a very easy golf cart ride away. The location of the house is perfect and the house itself is just beautiful and very family friendly. The staff makes it even better. Highly recommended!

Villa Blanca Luxury

  • 5 of 5

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)

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Hi Stephen, 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
