About the property

3/3.5, sleeps 6-8, walk to beach, private pool, golf, tennis, activities galore!

Experience tropical luxury at the beautiful Villa Tatagua, a three-bedroom private villa within Punta Cana Resort and Club. Miles of pristine beach called Playa Serena (Serene Beach) is located just three blocks away. At the the villa, soaring ceilings and banks of windows and sliding glass doors mean that sunshine pours in, opening onto a sprawling patio and turquoise pool surrounded by palm trees that line the rolling greens of La Cana Golf Course.

Three bedrooms, each with its own en suite bath, sleep 6-8 and are perfect for families or couples traveling together.

Palatial Comfort + Plenty of Activities at Punta Cana Resort and Club

Begin the day with a dip in your own private pool and prepared-for-you breakfast on the patio, then hit the golf course for a round of 9 with incredible views of the Caribbean. Villa Tatagua is located in Tortuga Bay, an award-winning oasis of private single-family homes within Punta Cana Resort and Club.

In addition to incredible natural surroundings – Tortuga Bay is nestled in an ecological reserve – you’ll have your pick of activities: There’s a spa, horseback riding, Segway tours, kite and wind surfing, snorkeling, and tons more. At the nearby Ojos Indigenas, trails lead to twelve freshwater lagoons for a magical swimming experience.

Or let the hours pass on the beautiful, white-sand beach at Playa Serena, sure to provide hours of sandcastle-building fun for little ones. Or let us help you book a private catamaran tour, where you’ll see the wonders of the ocean close-up and personal while you snorkel in the gorgeous blue waters.

We can prepare fresh, delicious meals for you at the villa (guests rave over our local fare!) And if you feel like dining out, the resort offers several world-class restaurants. From fresh-squeezed juices and grown-on-site veggie dishes at Bamboo to grilled steaks and shrimp skewers on the beach at Playa Blanca, there’s something for every taste.

Afterward, enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sunset from the patio. Then sink into luxe, 500-thread-count sheets with goose-down duvets. Bright, generously sized bedrooms with en suite bathrooms mean plenty of privacy for everyone. The master bathroom includes a separate shower and Jacuzzi tub that's perfect for long, hot soaks.

Friendly, Enthusiastic Service + Tons of Amenities

Before retiring to live my dream in the Dominican Republic, I was a civil engineer in a big American city. I’d visited the Dominican Republic many times, always brought back by the friendly people, beautiful beaches and tropical scenery. Today, I take the love that I have for this island and turn it into top-notch service for my guests, greeting you with a basket of local fruit, a drink, and a tour of the property. And because you’re staying at the island’s best resort, you’ll have access to all the amenities that Punta Cana Resort and Club has to offer.

We’re happy to offer the following as part of the rental price:

Daily housekeeping services

Concierge services

Round-trip transportation to and from Punta Cana International Airport – just five minutes away!


Pool and lounge chairs

Fitness center

Clay tennis courts (extra fees apply)

About Eduardo

Hello! I’m Eduardo, the owner of Villa Tatagua in beautiful and tropical Punta Cana Resort and Club.

I am a retired US civil engineer and general contractor and know what it is like to live a stress-filled life in the hustle and bustle of a large city. I had vacationed in the Dominican Republic many times in the past and always found the beautiful beaches, friendly people and tropical scenery so relaxing and inviting. I always found it hard to leave when the vacation was over and couldn’t wait until I could once again return. When I retired, I decided to make a change: I turned one of my favorite vacation spots into my retirement home and am so happy I did!

I bought this Villa 6 years ago and spent several months remodeling it to what it is today…a beautiful 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath, spacious, sun-filled Villa facing hole 2 of La Cana Golf Course and a short walk to Playa Serena, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I named the home Villa Tatagua in honor of a beautiful beachfront property my parents owned in Cuba.

I have loved every minute of this new life! It is a pleasure getting to know our guests and helping them turn their dream vacation into a reality. Many of our wonderful guests have returned year after year and we have a spotless 5-star review from 20 guests and counting!

My daughter and I will help make your vacation truly memorable. Leave your cares behind and enjoy Paradise!

Eduardo purchased this villa in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Eduardo,

We are having a lovely time.

Everything is wonderful... my husband and the two boys have been golfing nearly every day and loving it! Adrianna's meals have been wonderful and Chiciquito is also so pleasant and wonderful. We watched USA vs Belgium World Cup at the Westin on Tuesday which was also fun except for the USA loss:(

Everything fantastic. My one daughter and I are going to try some shopping in the San Juan shopping center once we figure out transportation.

Best and thank you for checking in,



Thank you,
Jun 2014

It was the best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience was positive. The house is spacious and very well appointed. The garden and pool were very lovely. Within a five minute cart ride you can be on a beautiful serene beach or by a pool, enjoying your favorite tropical beverage and delicious food. If one does not wish to leave the villa, relaxing by pool in the garden is very relaxing. We opted to have two meals a day prepared by the Villa Chef, Rosa. We were delighted to say the least. Having Rosa and Edmond there daily was the way to go. Not only are they very willing and helpful, but extremely warm and friendly- like an extension of family. We cannot say enough about the trip. The area offers something for everyone. I am torn between telling everyone I know about the great experience and keeping it as a secret. We will definitely be going back.

Excellent quality villa well positioned for golf, beach and other local amenities

  • 5 of 5

The property is very spacious, well maintained and well situated. We enjoyed our stay in these comfortable surroundings enormously. We found Eduardo, the owner, extraordinarily helpful. He was always on hand to ensure everything was OK, answer questions, suggest tours, help us buy groceries and even buy us a Thanksgiving gift basket. Rosa, the housekeeper/cook and Chiquitico were always on hand to look after our every need. Rosa's cooking was excellent and provided better value than local restaurants. We enjoyed eating out once or twice with Bamboo as our favorite because of the quality but the prices were very high; equivalent to New York City. The resort is very spread out and a golf cart is a necessity to get around. Initially, we found the lay out very confusing but eventually found our way around. A resort map would have been helpful. Overall, a very relaxing and comfortable experience.

I am glad that you and your family had such a nice experience with your Catamaran Cruise and that you enjoyed Rosa's cooking! Best wishes for the Holiday Season and hope to see you all back next year! Eduardo

Punta Cana Outstanding Private Villa Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were overly impressed & delighted to stay at Mr. Garcia-Allen's private hideaway in Punta Cana, DR. This 3 bedroom villa & it's location contains all the elements for a perfect beach, golfing, & relaxing family vacation. Mr. Allen & his attentive staff addressed every need we had...from our meals, to our entertainment, to transportation, etc. The villa is kept impeccably clean, and the property is manicured almost daily. Although the in-house meals were excellent, we were able to venture off, and dine at fine restaurants, including one on the water that was exceptional. Our catamaran escapade with snorkeling was better than the Florida Keys. Thank you Eduardo for making our vacation a truly restful, and exciting trip.

A paradise in Punta Cana

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well kept and the pool is cleaned daily. The service could not be better including the food and any drinks requested. Eduardo the owner goes out of his way to take care of you and makes arrangements for any activity that you want to participate. The resort has many amenities and the spa and tennis courts are second to none. In addition, the transpotation around the resort is easy and the accomodations are first class. It is the perfect way to either relax or engage in any activity desired. The temperature was perfect and the breeze on the beach was great. The clubhouse includes beach service of drinks and food. It is extremely convenient. We could not have had a better time or expect more attention to every detail. I look forward to going back.

Your own all inclusive property!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many homes internationally through VRBO and I can assure this is excellent. Eduardo obviously cares about the people who stay at his property and will check in. Having the staff of Rosa and Chiquitico was well worth it. We only ended up eating twice out for dinner because the food at the home was so good. It was like having a restaurant in your home. I did research Punta Cana until my head hurt. I really considered an all inclusive but there were things in reviews that I just wasn't sure about - especially food. Staying here is like your own private all inclusive. The owner does speak English - with the staff you may learn to learn some frases - download Google Translate to translate from English to Spanish. I did do all my meal planning before so I would t have problems with communication and we were a group of 7 - teenagers, parents, and grandparents so there were picky eaters. However Rosa was such an excellent cook and had variety no one complained. My husband's birthday was during the week and Chiquitico got him a delicious gate. Beach and pool at the Club were fantastic. Both shade and sun. Seaweed only seems to be a bigger issue when there is a hard rain - there is a barrier although not foolproof with storms. We did the buggies and Hoyo Azul at the Scape park - Eduardo can help with transport. We did the catamaran to Saona and the natural pool with starfish. In hindsight I would have done a private tour. It was with a group with others from hotels which also led to every worker involved with the tour to have his/her handout which was overwhelming. Eduardo can help you I'm sure get you the best tours. You are crazy not to rent this place!

Owner's Response: Owner's Response: I am so glad your family had a nice time. Thank you for the kind review. It always makes us happy when our Guests expectations have been met especially when you arrive having already experienced an all-inclusive resort. That pretty much summed it up! As always, you were a pleasure to work with. Please give my regards to the abuelos, I really enjoyed talking to them that afternoon by the pool. Thank you! You are welcome back any time!!
