Punta Cana Villa Rental Photos and Description

De-stress in a Private Seaside Paradise!

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.


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!

Fantastic memory for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We've rented houses in Costa Rica, Roatan, Europe, and US. This was one of our favorite.

The location is very convenient to the beach, desired activities and Punta Cana airport. Having 3 masters was perfect for our group of 3 families, with the boys and girls sharing the 4th and 5th BR, respectively. It was especially nice that each BR has its own bathroom.

Lorenzo is a great host but I think he'd agree with me that the real difference maker at this property is Julianna. She removed the stress that can easily happen when you have a large family group staying together for a week if cooking and cleaning on your own. We had all our meals, except an occasional lunch at the beach, at the house and Julianna never disappointed. Her paella is as good as we found in Spain last year (requested it twice) and she made a wonderful ceviche with fish we caught during our stay.

Only caveat is that while each bedroom has AC, the common rooms do not. Even so, I'm very happy we choose this house.

Punta Cana Karma

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely! The open air design allows you to enjoy the environment without suffering the heat. The bedrooms are pleasantly air-conditioned to allow comfortable sleeping. A easy spot to settle in while you seek rest and respite from day to day life.

The beaches are nearby and easily accessible by golf cart. The restaurant at Playa Blanca is a perfect way to break up a beach day with a delightful lunch. La Yola is also a spot to venture out to, but pricey for what it is.

All of this is packaged and delivered with the tender care of the owner, Lorenzo Caimari and the cuisine and resident coordinator, Julianna. Lorenzo takes intentional steps to make sure that your arrival and your stay is without incident. Julianna is in residence to be sure that your needs are being met. My best advice to you is to engage Julianna to prepare dinner for you. She prepares the most delicious and inspired Dominican dishes as though you are her family. With loving care. You won't find food like hers anywhere on the Island.

All said, this is a marvelous place that you can relax and enjoy this beautiful island and you are guaranteed to return to your own reality with a new perspective.

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 8, ranging in age from 8 to 72. This home was perfect for us. Our hosts, Lorenzo and Daisy, were very accommodating and helpful. Everyone had their own space in a comfortable and beautiful house. Juliana is the best! She cooked for us every day but one and every meal was delicious. We enjoyed the beach, the pool, zip lining, a charter boat cruise, the ecological center, golf and the dolphin park. The people in Punta Cana are friendly and really lovely. Three of us speak Spanish but you can easily get by if you don't. We are planning on coming back to the house in the future.

A trip to remember!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time celebrating my parent's 50th wedding anniversary at Lorenzo's beautiful home! We are a family of 10, ranging in ages from 76 to 12 years old who spent a week in this delightful home. The home is welcoming, well-cared for and provided a great place to vacation and spend quality time with one another. The location of the home is convenient to the beaches, golf, the clubhouse/spa, restaurants and the marina. The golf carts were a perfect way to travel around the resort. We had Juliana cook 5 of the 7 days we were there and she does not disappoint. Delicious food that all of our family enjoyed! She is a must for cooking during your stay. Lorenzo could not have been more kind and accommodating, from our airport pick ups, to providing information regarding the area, to trips to the grocery store; he provided warm hospitality and was a gracious host. Thank you Lorenzo! We have so many fond memories and beautiful pictures of our stay that we returned to the U.S. with!

Unbelievable trip and the week of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here in June 2016 and it was fantastic! Rooms were actually better than the pictures represented, and having the extra space for our family of 11 was extremely advantageous over an all-inclusive. Having our own home allowed us to eat meals and spend some real quality time together — yet retreat for private down time, restrooms, or showers when necessary. Quiet, private, and spacious are words that accurately reflect this property, with clean and high-quality as assumed bonuses.

Lorenzo (owner) and his help picked us up promptly at the airport then checked on us on a regular (yet not intrusive) basis throughout our start. He was likable, friendly, and accommodating from beginning to end — giving us advice on what we should go and do and what we could expect to spend. Julianna (chef/host) was absolutely AMAZING and every meal was nothing short of extraordinary — we only spent a week with her yet considered her a part of the family by the time we left.

Home is located only 10 minutes south of the airport in a secure community, and a short walk to the golf clubhouse, larger pool and beach. Complimentary shuttle from the clubhouse was regular and convenient, running all the way north to the Westin, another beach and even groceries in town if necessary — and a shorter distance to the south to an awesome ecological park and marina.

We took in a few local excursions (dolphins, buggy rides, parasailing, snorkeling, etc) which we were able to get via the complimentary shuttle or transportation directly from the house. We weren’t sure how often we would use the house pool given it’s size, yet it seemed that everyone spent some time just floating, relaxing or even jus cooling off a bet — a bigger plus than we anticipated. The larger pool and beach at the clubhouse is something we utilized periodically, and the extra space there provided a nice scenery change when we needed it. We didn’t golf, but saw three separate nine hold courses that looked extremely nice — and not crowded.

Really can’t say enough about this place, the staff that helped us, the area in general and the time that we had here — truly the trip of a lifetime and highly recommended!!..

We would also recommend Thom’s Tours and their 4-pack of parasailing, snorkeling, sharks/stingrays and a private beach — very fun, especially for the adventuresome crowd!!
