About the property

Be part of the Adventure with your Family

Hello! I’m Lorenzo, the owner of Villa Can Nico. And this villa saved my life.

The short version of the story: I was on the way to work one morning when sharp pains shot through my chest, announcing a heart attack. Afterward, my doctor strongly recommended I quit my stressful job or risk heart attack #2. I listened!

That is why we turned our dream home by the sea and golf courses in Punta Cana—built from my own architectural designs—into a place we would share with others: Villa Can Nico.

And let me tell you, I have loved every minute of this new life! It is a pleasure getting to know our guests and helping them enjoy our villa (we have a spotless 5-star record from 35 guests and counting!).

I greet everyone personally at the airport. And if it’s not too late when they arrive, I offer a tour around the Punta Cana Beach Resort and the many activities and amenities you can enjoy on-site—like golfing, three nearly deserted private beaches, the fitness center, water-skiing, horseback riding, and a lot more (keep reading!)

Who knows, maybe you too will fight off a heart attack by spending a relaxing week on the beach here in paradise with the ones you love!

Here are some of our favorite features of our Villa Can Nico:


The guests tell us the private beaches at Punta Cana resort are astounding, and they are! Nowhere have we found beaches this serene, peaceful, and nearly empty much of the time. And one beach, Playa Serena, is located just 300 yards away from Villa Can Nico. Take a short stroll and the beach is all yours.

These beaches are wonderful for kids, too, with gentle water and soft sand. We even provide the bucket and spade for building sandcastles at Villa Can Nico, as well as other kid-and-baby-friendly items like a 2 high chairs, 2 cribs, and toys for the pool and beach so you can pack a bit lighter.


Thanks to the flawless weather in Punta Cana, we created a space that blends indoor and outdoor spaces. Guests love the open-air rooms, interior patio bursting with lush tropical landscaping (palm trees included) and a gazebo at the center of

the villa with a sparkling pool—a place that will quickly become the most popular spot in the house.

Each of the 5 bedrooms open to the outdoors with large windows and sliding doors framed in white curtains that billow on a breeze. The furniture and décor in these bedrooms and throughout the villa are beautiful—but not so swanky that you don’t want to touch them. Take off your shoes, relax and get comfortable.

There are even two outdoor showers, one with a Jacuzzi, so you can commune with nature while you get clean.


No only do you get the comfortable, barefoot villa experience at the house, you also get all the perks of the Punta Cana Resort.

This includes 7 (seven!) different restaurants, an ecological park with naturally crystal clear freshwater lagoons, fitness center, tennis courts, and most importantly (in my opinion), simply breathtaking golf courses. Of course, others would disagree with me and say the gorgeous private, pristine beaches are by far the best feature. I’ll let you decide for yourself!


Our housekeeper and personal chef Juliana is a true treasure—check out our reviews for proof! We are so lucky to have her here at Villa Can Nico. She will keep the place spotless for you and prepare her gorgeous, authentic meals for your family and friends—best enjoyed out on the gazebo dining table in the warm Caribbean air , and just for 80 US$ a day for the entire group.


We would love to meet you and host you here at Villa Can Nico. Please contact us to book your dates or ask us any questions about Punta Cana or our villa. We’re happy to help!

One of the reasons we choose this property for our vacation was all of the wonderful reviews. It is my pleasure to add to these reviews. We spent a week at this property with two other families. We were greeted at the airport by Lorenzo and upon arriving to the house were treated as family, not just guests. Lorenzo took us to the store with Julianna to get our first round of groceries. Julianna is WONDERFUL and worth every penny. She knew just what to buy and served every meal with love. We enjoyed getting to know her each day. She cooked all of our meals (breakfast and dinner) except for one dinner. We went to Playa Blanca for dinner one evening. It was nice to do once but we were so glad to have Julianna as eating out gets old. Lorenzo is a wonderful host and called most mornings to see if we needed anything. I often texted him throughout the week with questions and he responded instantly. The house itself is gorgeous and very spacious. With a group of 10, a house can instantly feel small but this house gave us plenty of room to spread out. Though we were by the pool most of the trip. The Country club is right across the street with a beautiful beach, pool, and bar. We spent a lot of time there as well. They have kayas and paddles boards available which we all loved. The golf cart that came with house was great and gave us the ability to explore the repsort. We rented an extra cart for our large party. I highly reccommend going to the Ecological reseve....beautiful lagoons to swim in!!!! This was a highlight for us. You are able to drive the golf carts to the Westin and Playa Blanca but carts are not allowed to go to the store. Lorenzo was able to take us to the store a second time in the middle of the week. We also did the Safari Outback tour which was a very fun day trip. Other than that we RELAXED! The weather was beautiful and we coulnd't have asked for a better vacation. Thank you Lorenzo and Julianna for a very memorable trip!

Don't Look Any Further...Best Villa in Punta Cana!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a girlfriends’ reunion at Villa Can Nico in Punta Cana. Seven forever friends spent seven nights at this amazing villa. We had been planning this trip for a year and in constant communications with Lorenzo, the owner. We were so pleasantly surprised upon arrival as the villa is even more beautiful than the photos. Villa Can Nico had everything we needed to be pampered and relaxed during our stay. Lorenzo met us at the airport, took us grocery shopping with Juliana who is the best housekeeper/chef you will ever meet. He was eager to answer all our questions on what to do, where to go, how to get there and Juliana was so pleasant and a delight. She lovingly prepared our breakfasts and dinners (when we were home). Most nights we spent at the resorts several bars/restaurants for happy hour and then came home in our golf carts to a fabulous dinner prepared by Juliana. The villa is beautiful, open and airy surrounded by palm trees and just a short walk to the stunning white sandy beaches that have comfortable lounge chairs under the palm trees. You won't be disappointed when you stay here. It has everything to make your vacation magical. I can't wait to return and might just retire to this piece of paradise!

the Villa was fantastic.. the owner the best. Mosquitos a pain in the butt.

  • 5 of 5

Lorenzo was wonderful. Met us at the airport and transported us to the house. The Villa was fantastic (minus a minor hot water for 1 1/2 days but corrected on Monday. Julianna the maid is well worth the extra money for her to do the cooking. She was wonderful and all her dishes were terrific. We would definitely think about coming down again and staying at the same place. The beach and golf were easily accessible. The ONLY downside was the mosquitos . You woke up in the morning and immediately sprayed yourself top to bottom with insect repellent . That was the only negative.

Wonderful Family Trip with a Personal Touch!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned last night from seven days in paradise! The villa is a like a treehouse with all the rooms open to the inner courtyard and offering views of the golf course. It's a truly unique experience. We were two families of four with teenagers, so we loved that the house provided a lounging space for everyone to be together and privacy when needed. The beds were all comfy and the rooms have great cross-ventilation so we didn't use the air conditioning upstairs. Hot showers were a plenty as well. We started our trip with a warm greeting from Lorenzo at the airport, who also joined us the next morning to shop for groceries with Julianna. We didn't really need to be there, but felt we should as we have some specific allergies. You just have to sit down with Julianna and she kind of guides you through what she thinks about making - google translate is your friend! We booked activities through TJ at one stop shopping for coordinating all activities and transport. He's great - Parasailing, swimming with dolphins and the Scape Park for zipline/hoyo azul recommended. If you like snorkeling, definitely book a private boat tour here: Lots of golf was played by the husbands and they raved about the courses. The kids mostly loved the freedom of zipping around on the golf carts - be careful though as the resort polica pulled our sons over and they got a talking to one night. One of us loves tennis and loved playing at the Oscar de la Renta Tennis Center. We also highly recommend the massages and also yoga, which takes place in a little open air hut in adjacent Tortuga Bay. Let's not forget Julianna, who made feasts for breakfast and dinner each evening! She is delightful and so sweet. She even did laundry for us several times during the week and kept on top of the towels - making sure we always had a pile of dry ones. The best was when she somehow found a few extra six packs of cervezas when we ran out on New Year's Day and all the stores were closed.....and then Lorenzo sweetly dropped off some wine as well. Another plus was the TV upstairs which got American channels - a must during the college football bowl games. Last, but not least, one of us had an emergency and Lorenzo dropped everything on New Year's Day to take us to the ER, staying with us and translating the whole time. I will never forget his kindness. (All is well, in case you are wondering.)

As a hotel industry professional I have very high standards relative to accommodations and hospitality - Villa Can Nico did not disappoint! From Lorenzo as an owner to the host that greeted us at the airport to Juliana (our "everything" for the week - chef, housekeeper, friend, etc.), the entire experience was fantastic. I could probably write a novel raving about our experience for the week, but in the interest of keeping it short and sweet we would 1000% stay here again. The key points: 1) there are three king bedrooms and two bedrooms with two beds in each of them (7 beds total) - more than enough space to accomodate 5 adults and 4 kids for the week, 2) Juliana was amazing - she cooked for us once or twice per day, did our laundry, cleaned the house daily, and was a joy to be around; housekeeping was included but Juliana is well worth the nominal (in our opinion) additional cost to prepare meals and help with laundry, 3) the La Cana Beach Club is a 5 or 6 minute walk or a 2 minute golf cart ride away - fantastic beach, food and beverage, great pool... awesome. Would recommend this villa to anyone. Thanks for the amazing experience!!!
