Contemporary Colonial Villa with traditional, natural and organic local materials. This is an impressively restful 10,000 sq. ft. Villa built on a 21,000 sq. ft. lot right on the golf course.
QUINTA ESENCIA integrates the scenic Punta Cana environment with multiple elements such as natural rocks, local coraline stones, exotic woods, banana and mango trees, etc. This will make you feel comfortable while surrounded by pure nature.
The villa is located within the luxury Punta Cana Resort & Club on the east coast of the Dominican Rep, home to no other than Oscar De La Renta, Julio Iglesias and Mikhail Baryshnikov.
It provides the sort of exclusivity and privacy travelers need. As a renter of the villa, you will be able to access the world renowned Hotel Tortuga (Punta Cana Resort) and enjoy their restaurant, bar, golf courses designed by P.B.Dye & T.Fazio and all resort amenities such as the amazing Six Senses Spa, the tennis courts and the Beach Club. Safety is a priority with security guards on duty 24/7 throughout the gated community of Tortuga Bay and the along the beach.
La Cana Golf Course: The magnificent oceanfront views of La Cana Golf Course will captivate the most discerning golf design connoisseurs, while its well-fortified greens challenge the game’s toughest competitors. After one round, avid enthusiast and casual player alike will understand why Golf Magazine has compared La Cana to Pebble Beach and declared it the “number one course in the Caribbean.”
Designed by P. B. Dye, La Cana boasts fourteen ocean-view holes with four playing right on the water’s edge, and its state-of-the-art Seashore Paspalum grass allows for maintenance with minimal environmental impact. No player can take a golf vacation to the Caribbean without testing his or her chops on this stand-out course.
Corales Golf Course: Start with a cliff-top setting overlooking the Caribbean Sea and add the land-sculpting skills of Tom Fazio, and you're almost guaranteed a compelling trophy course. Corales doesn't disappoint. With six holes along the water -- including the closing three -- Punta Cana Resort's newest layout has become a must-play since opening in April. Accessible only to guests of the Punta Cana Resort and community residents (such as designer Oscar de la Renta and crooner Julio Iglesias), Corales is a beautiful beast. Buffeted by coastal breezes, the roomy layout is pure eye-candy from start to finish, with terrain that's blanketed with ponds, coconut palms, sand expanses and an array of stylish Fazio bunkers. Most unforgettable, however, is the finishing stretch of holes, collectively known as 'El Codo del Diablo,' (the Devil's Elbow). The muscular 461-yard 16th heads straight to the sea, while the 214-yard 17th edges it. But the showstopper is the 448-yard 18th.
Punta Cana Resort & Club: Located on the Dominican Republic's eastern coast and ten short minutes away from PUNTA CANA International Airport, PUNTA CANA Resort & Club offers the ultimate in luxury, service and adventure. From the vibrant PUNTA CANA Hotel or the exclusive Tortuga Bay, the only AAA Five Diamond hotel in the Dominican Republic, a secluded enclave with impeccable service and decor designed by Oscar de la Renta, travelers will find an array of amenities sure to satisfy even the most discriminating tastes.
Also set within the 26 square miles of lush Caribbean landscape is an elite residential community: The Estates at PUNTA CANA Resort & Club. Seamlessly incorporated into its paradisiacal setting, the Estates is comprised of four private neighborhoods, including Tortuga Bay, Hacienda, Arrecife and the most exclusive community, Corales.

Great location and nice indoor outdoor living
We had a fantastic time. The pool is beautiful and the view of the golf course (#6 Tortuga on the Le Cana course) is awesome. The staff is absolutely fantastic, especially Henry who helped with everything (he even climbed a tree to cut down fresh coconuts). The food that Ana prepared was amazing.
Wonderful Vacation Home
Our entire family, consisting of four generations ,ages 93 to 3, spent seven days here the week before Christmas. It could not have been more perfect. My communications with the owner were very, very pleasant. Francisco could not have been more helpful and patient with all my questions and frequently provided advice and recommendations that improved and added to our already wonderful visit.
The property was exactly as depicted. It was up to date, clean, tastefully decorated, and comfortable. We enjoyed it almost as much as our own home.
I cannot end without mentioning the staff. They were wonderful. Even though our Spanish was limited, there were no problems communicating and in fact, some laughs about what we thought we were saying and what we actually did say!! Henry, Anna and Carolina took excellent care of us and were a delight to be with. They went over and above what we expected to make us feel at home. Anna's cooking was simply amazing. I think we all gained weight but couldn't resist her meals.
We certainly plan on another vacation there. 5 stars is really not enough to describe this property and staff.
7 Star Stay! Definetley comming back!
We had a wonderful stay at the Villa, it is situated on a private and picturesque location and just a minute away by golf cart from one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches that we have ever been too!
We were one family with two kids, niece and grandma looking for beautiful beaches (no rocks, sugary sand) and golf and this place fit the bill perfectly! This would also be an ideal rental for up to 8 golfers.
This is our 7th trip to the Dominican Republic, and we love golf. Punta Cana, I believe has 2 of the best golf courses in the world, Corales and Punta Espada, so immaculately manicured, I can't even describe! Also they have very little play and usually there is no one ahead or behind your group. La Cana course, which the Villa is situated on is also a superb Oceanside option.
The home is truly gorgeous, the art work throughout is impressive, the pictures do not do it justice! Ample places to lounge around, just relax and do nothing. The pool is a perfect place to spend the afternoons and at night we would all gather and watch a movie in the separate living room with large HDTV. Great family time with no distractions form cell phones or social media, (Don't get me wrong, its all available on the free high speed internet, but we chose not to use it too frequently).
The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated! With only six of us there was ample room for all. The AC worked perfectly fine and kept us cool during our stay.
I saved the best for last, the STAFF! Henry (butler/driver/concierge), Anna (Chef) and Carolina (house keeper), they made our stay quite memorable and we felt at home during the entire trip. It was a sad moment on departure day, we felt we were leaving family behind! They were always attentive and ready for every need or wish we had, yet they were never in the way or obtrusive, silently working behind the scene. We never went out for a single meal, we enjoyed every meal at home! Breakfast was the best, in the outdoor dining area, everything was delicious and ready on time as per our request. They were accommodating to our dining times (late lunches and dinners) and to our meal preferences since we had two vegetarians in our group. Henry went above and beyond for my Mom's 77th birthday, she had requested a carrot cake which Anna could not make and without informing us, went to a pastry shop in town and got the carrot cake and surprised us later that evening with flaming candles, et. al. That moment was priceless for us!
Amazing Property, Excellent Service
This was my very first experience with homeaway and I feel spoiled! From the property itself, to the staff and the location, everything was outstanding. Everything was exactly as described. I went down to Punta Cana with 3 other couples and we had a wonderful experience from the beginning , and they accommodated us really well even though it was last minute. The mansion is stunning, the location is magnificent and the surroundings are beautiful. It had lots of very spacious rooms and common areas, with an amazing pool area and outdoor lounging areas. The common area is large, and so many different dining and living rooms, some outdoors, some indoors with A/C.
Our room was on the second floor, it was spacious, with lots of light, and blackout shades which were godsend. It was very comfortable with my own bathroom. A very quiet place to sleep and recharge the batteries, but also a great location to explore the resort. It is easy and close to walk down to the beach from the property, for a lovely walk along the water, it was a very relaxing place. We also needed a place to work with our laptops and the large living room with A/C did the job perfectly, and hi-speed internet was a blessing too.
It was very clean, and the staff was ready to make our beds while we were having breakfast. They were also very helpful with anything we needed during our stay, offered tips on fun things to do, and the cook knows her stuff ;)
Highly recommended, believe me you won't be disappointed. I would happily stay there again, and would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone!
LUXURY VILLA FOR SURE! AMAZING STAFF DELIGHTS!
This home has a beautiful floor plan that is exceptional for any family gathering. Each of the bedrooms were beautifully appointed and had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and provided a great night's rest. The common areas had plenty of seating for a variety of outdoor experiences. There were wonderful outdoor spaces for one to sit and read or gather as a group to talk or enjoy a meal together.
The swimming pool was a true delight. Big enough for lots of people to float around and enjoy umbrella drinks while the kids play Marco Polo.
The staff who runs the house went above and beyond to ensure that everything we needed was taken care of. Henry the Butler is a master of all things and made sure that all special requests were taken care of. Carolina handled all things for comfort such as turn down service each night as well as pool amenities such as towels. Anna, the chef is incredible. From breakfast to dinner, she will delight you with flavors that will satisfy the most discerning eater. S he also is great with kids meals!!!!
I cannot say enough about the positive experience we had on this vacation. We would highly recommend this luxury villa for your next experience in Tortuga Bay Resort / Punta Cana.
Amazing time in paradise!
We spent 4 days in this marvelous villa and we had an unbelievable time! I went there with my parents, my sister, my wife and my two daughters. We all loved it as it was literally 1 minute by foot from the beach. We enjoyed very much the walks in the morning on the beach next to the Tortuga Hotel. That beach is literally deserted ALL THE TIME and it was there all for ourselves. We loved Playa Blanca and the lagoons which were out of this world. The staff in the house was very courteous and cooked quite well. The only drawback was that we needed to provide our own food and had to go to the supermarket to get groceries. It was about 10 mins away from the house but still, who wants to go to the market on vacation... ;-) You can send the butler to get it but it’s hard to explain exactly what you want. All in all, amazing time. Oh, and the restaurants in the complex are really nice but not worth the money. I would recommend to eat in.
Playa Blanca, a very well known beach in the Punta Cana Resort and within a 5 minute golf cart ride from the villa, is famous for Kite Surfing and many other water sports. You can bring your own gear or rent it there. Classes are also provided at a small fee. A boat can also be rented. Six Senses Spa is located on the Beach Club.
