About the property

6 bedroom (8 beds) luxury villa located in Punta Cana Resort & Club.

Welcome to Villa Blanca – your Caribbean luxury home featuring Famous Gourmet Chef William Dobson!

Villa Blanca had been renovated in the fall of 2016!

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.

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 Queen bed and a full bathroom. The 2nd guesthouse, which also has a Queen bed and a full bathroom, is located on the back of the villa 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.

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.

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 Gourmet Chef - William Dobson (more info here: 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 all your housekeeping needs.

There is currently some construction in the neighborhood, which may give a bit of noise in the daytime between 8am-5:pm (not on Sundays).

Additional services, which can be provided (subject to availability and extra charges):

Private airport transfers from/to Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) - approx. 1.5 miles from the villa

About The Owner

The property is owned by IVI Club and operated by Palmera Travel.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2013

Why The Owner chose Dominican Republic East

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.

Beautiful Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were welcomed by the butler, maid and propert manager. Everyone was nice and friendly, the fact that our butler was able to travel with us was helpful because most locals speak only Spanish and he was able to translate to make sure no one was getting over on us. The villa offered a chef that cook 3 meals a day for a little as 26$ a person a day!! How wonderful is that...the Villa has a coordinator that will book all your activities and transportation for free so there is no need for a travel agent when booking a trip there. The villa was nice and clean at all times and everything is changed out by the maid everyday as if your were living in a hotel...the property was well kept by locals who came to clean the pool and do yard work...the Villa also has a guest house and pool house outside with 3 bathrooms and each room inside the house has full bathrooms...this is definitely the perfect vacation spot for a group trip with friends and family!! I would definitely book again and again!!

Amazing Amazing Amazing - Service & Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 9 covering three generations, there was not one person who was not blown away by the beauty of Villa Blanca/Arreciffe, but it was the wonderful staff that made the entire trip just exceptional. From the minute you arrive, Manuel the house butler made us feel like we were as special as the property itself. We did do the all inclusive options with full time chef, and everything was terrific. Again though I just cannot stress enough how exceptional Manuel was to our entire family as he made the trip perfect! The rooms are large and well appointed, the pool and outside living room were of the highest quality of any resort. The location was not far at all from the beach, we enjoyed the view of the golf course from the very many different vantage points from the house, balconies and decks. I highly recommend the property, staff and management, just easy to deal with and they think of everything! This is what a vacation is supposed to be: relaxing, exceptional location and service, perfect!

Thank you from the France Family!

A group of 8 college friends (from the 70s) and spouses spent 6 nights at Villa Blanca in June. I agree with everything all the other reviews said. This villa was absolutely fantastic and so spacious! We just loved it! I will quickly repeat what was important to us (and it's mostly a repeat of the other reviewers comments). The entire house was air conditioned - there was never a hot sweaty moment for anybody. Ali, our butler, was fantastic and very friendly; he was always there to take care of whatever we needed. Bertrand prepared all of our meals for the entire stay. He's a fantastic chef, and his food was absolutely the best; and there were always leftovers. He even shared a few of his recipes when we asked. His specialty is pastry -- so beware!! Our deserts were quite delectable! Sonia kept the house very tidy and washed lots and lots of our clothes and even more pool towels -- everyday! Fernando was also there every day (maintaining the grounds), always ready willing and able to help. He even helped blow up our pool rafts when we first arrived. And he also brought fresh coconuts and chopped them open so we could enjoy the milk and fresh coconut meat. The golf carts are a definite must! Seriously. We rented 2 which served our 8 people quite nicely. And we used them everyday - trips to Playa Blanca beach and La Cana beach. We also rode around in the evenings before dinner with the intent of exploring every inch of Punta Cana Resort - it's a huge place. One thing we didn't do, but plan to do next time is take the shuttle to the shopping center and ecological reserve. We talked about it, but just never followed through. The guys fished one day, and Bertrand cooked their catch that night and again the next day - using different and delicious recipes for each meal. At the end of the trip we were all in agreement that we definitely want to come back - and the sooner the better. No kidding, this place is the real deal!

Hasta la próxima: Anna and Marvin; Rose and Pat; Charlie and Tiffany; Lois and Ronnie

An Exquisite Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at this property was wonderful. The villa is beautiful, with air conditioning in every room, a gourmet kitchen and fully stocked bar and fridge, and your very own pool overlooking the golf course. Decor was sleek and modern but not cold. There were several beaches nearby to choose from -- we loved the La Cana beach and the grill for a quick lunch. The maid was great - kept everything clean for us and always had towels available. The butler was also terrific - friendly but professional and great with the little one (one and half year old). I cannot recommend this villa enough. The week was wonderfully relaxing and I didn't want to come home. A couple helpful tips -- get the optional golf cart. There is a ton to do around the resort property and the golf cart was beyond convenient. Also, there is a shuttle to the different hotels, the shopping center and the ecological reserve. Get the schedule at the Westin front desk at the beginning of the week and save on cab fare!

Amazing experience in Punta Cana

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the amazing Villa Blanca couldn't have been better. The home itself is spectacular and could have held several more couples very easily. The furnishings are very tasteful and modern. Much time was spent in the pool and on the covered lanai. The whole house stereo system was terrific. Needless to say, having a butler like Ali, was the icing on the cake. Not only was he so professional, he was very interesting and engaging. We enjoyed getting to know him. The management company was terrific as well. Having a 6 course meal prepared by a Michelin rated chef was the perfect way to end our trip. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who appreciates luxury and exceptional service.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was one thing to see the photos on line and another to walk into Villa Blanca. The house is spectacular and spacious and the photos don't quite do it justice. In addition to three generous bedrooms upstairs, there are two separate guest houses (one in front and one in back of house). One of my favorite things to do each morning was to open all the doors to the house and let in the breeze and sunshine. There is also a lovely outdoor cabana-like living room beside the pool; this became a popular place to escape the sun and read a book. We visited the house with three teenage children and we spent a lot of time enjoying the pool, as well as, playing golf, tennis, spending time at the beach club, and driving the golf cart. The highlight of our stay was the staff at the house; there was a maid who cleaned our living spaces daily and a butler who served/cleaned our meals and was our point person. What was extra special is hiring a chef; he shopped for our groceries and cooked all of our delicious meals. Our family would often congregate in the living room each evening to enjoy each other's company and dinner would magically be served in the dining room. We originally intended to go to a restaurant on our last night, but asked our chef to stay and he cooked our last meal! Overall, this vacation was incredibly relaxing, our accommodations spectacular, and staff were friendly and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend this spot to fellow vacationers/travelers!
