A wonderful welcoming house on an exceptional property in a 5 star resort. The house provided privacy and comfort for all while the common spaces invited conversation and socializing. The fully equipped kitchen, complete with charming housekeeper, is open to the outside and pool area so that the flow is terrific. It is a treat to bicycle or walk around the entire Punta Cana resort and the golf course is one of the best. The exquisite beaches are very close and the spa is top notch. In addition, being close to the airport is very convenient and allows you to make the most of your vacation. I can\'t wait to return next year.

Pack your bags with your most comfortable resort wear, toss in some bathing suits and coverups, include a few outfits for some special evening dining adventures and enjoy a luxurious holiday in this beautiful villa. Minutes from the airport, it is every bit as lovely as the pictures you see online, but even better to be there. The listing description is accurate, the property is gorgeous, both inside and out, and with daily maid service you\'ll have nothing to do but relax outside under the well-appointed terrace sipping your favorite drink as you enjoy this beautiful pool and golf course. I actually took my swim goggles and found the pool large enough to swim some laps ... one of my favorite activities while there. The outood shower and jacuzzi provided some extra fun as well. Using a golf cart, you have access to the golf club (beach, huge swimming pool, spa and restaurant), marina (restaurant), and nature preserve (lovely freshwater swimming adventure). With a rental car you can expand your activities if you like, but I have to tell you that I was quite content within this fabulous gated community. This certainly is a luxury villa, with bright blue skies during the day and soft, starry nights at day\'s end. I loved Las Palmas. Come see for yourself!

Home is as nice as seen in pictures. Maid was great. Best part was the ease of communication with stateside manager/owner who assisted in making our vacation as smooth as possible! Very detail oriented and much appreciated. Owner Response: Our goal is to not only have the nicest villa for rent in Punta Cana, but also to offer the best possible service for our guests so that their vacation can be truly stress-free and memorable. Thanks so much for the kind words.

Villa Las Palmas is an ideal vacation house. The villa, grounds, and location are truly perfect. The rooms are fabulous and the layout gives everyone a lot of privacy. There\'s also great staff, including an amazing chef. The beaches are very close and are some of the most beautiful I\'ve ever seen (and I\'ve seen gorgeous beaches). And great golf courses. Fabulous week -- can\'t wait to come back!

This was a dream vacation. The villa was beyond our wildest expectation. The pictures are incredible on line but the warmth and character of this property is breathtaking. I travel extensively and have always done 5 star hotels but no longer after this amazing experience. The property was only minutes from the airport with impeccable security & convenience to La Cana & Corales Golf Courses. Corales was the best golf experience anyone can imaging. Also, Six Sense Spa was incredible after each round. Mode of transportation on property is on golf carts so access to golf, dining & spa simple. The attention to detail and follow-up throughout the entire process was second to none. Property management was detailed and extraordinary pre-arrival to departure. We began each morning with a swim in the infinity pool before enjoying breakfast pool side. Service staff was phenomenal as they met every request. I will definitely stay again and share this piece of heaven with family & friends in Punta Cana.

Dear Jan and Cindy, The 5 days that we spent at your beautiful, luxurious home account for one of the best vacations that we have ever had! The beaches are pristine, the infinity pool at the back of your home is a wonderful place to relax morning, afternoon and evening! Best of all, for us, were the three rounds of play at La Cana Golf Resort. 14 of the 18 holes have water in play with spectacular views of the ocean. The golf course staff are all so personable and friendly. This is a first rate vacation site for beach lovers, golfers, and everyone who wants to escape, relax, and have fun!

It;s been a long time since I was happy with the entire package!! Tremendous home, overwhelmeing service, perfect beds and more Golf than even I could handle. All within the development. Thanks for giving complete satisfaction to my group of 8 and with any luck we will take advantage of this environment again. The home is exquisite and was even better than the pictures showed. The space allowed for great lounge area and yet we never fell on top of each other. The custom shutters kept it dark when we needed rest and the sunlight in when we needed vitamin sun... I would give a solid reference to anyone who would be interested in the Home... Beautiful and Thanks again!!!!!

Having been to Punta Cana several times a year over the last few years, I have had the opportunity to view many of the properties in the Punta Cana Resort. Las Palmas is one of the best available for rental. The Villa is so comfortable, the Staff so accommodating, you may not want to leave. But, if you don\'t, you will miss the many attractions available just a short bike or golf cart ride away. The golfing, the beach, the natural springs, the Clubhouse Grill for a drink or lunch, the Marina for a boat ride, the Spa for a massage or facial. We arrived at the always being improved airport at 3 PM and were happily situated by the pool at Las Palmas by 3:30. The villa is moments from the airport and 5 minutes to the Punta Canta village where there is now a super grocery store with all the foods from home you could never find before. Other village favorites are Brote for bagels (as good as in NYC, believe it or not!), Mama Luisa\'s Italian (make sure to say Hola to Mama!), Il Polso Portugeuse (Just reopened recently after a make-over with excellent food and a lovely young couple who run it), and Pizzarelli Pizzaria (darn good pizza). If it sounds like all we did was eat, you\'d be correct. When not dining out, we threw several dinner parties at the Villa. Intimate dinners for four to family style sit-downs for ten. The kitchen and grill at Las Palmas are perfect for entertaining and as the weather is usually fabulous, you get to dine out under the stars almost every night. Regarding the weather, October is still considered Low Season in the Dominican Republic because of heavy rainfall, heat and humidity. Not any more! In the two weeks we were there it did not even rain once to disturb our days or evenings. All rain conveniently fell at night when we were safely in our beds! The Staff of the Villa meticulously maintain the grounds and interiors. The Owner and the Property Manager were both accommodating to our needs, and were such a pleasure to deal with that we are planning on staying in touch in the hopes of getting together next time we are in Punta Cana, possibly January 2012. Owner\'s Response Thank you for your kind words. Not only do we have a spectacular villa located in the most exclusive section of the best resort in the Dominican Republic, but we strive to provide the best service possible for our guests so that their vacation is memorable in every way possible. We are one of the very few villas who provide not only a fulltime maid and gardener/handyman, but more importantly an on-site property manager to assist the guests while they are staying at the villa. Airport transfers, car rentals, golf cart rentals, villa pre-stocking of food/drinks, chefs, butlers, nannies, drivers, golf discounts, tennis lessons, restaurant reservations, spa services and more are just a few of the many services we provide to our guests.

Perfect vacation spot! This is a perfect island getaway. The villa is exquisite -- perfect layout, giving everyone privacy. The pool and grounds are beautiful and really well-maintained. The staff is great -- efficient and very nice and the chef was outstanding! And the location -- we drove around and this is by far the best location in Punta Cana, right on the golf course and short walk to many of the most beautiful beaches I\'ve seen, plus the golf club and spa. Just sorry I could only stay one week. We enjoyed it.

I am so glad you enjoyed the chef. He is really incredible. Next time, if you wish to have a butler or nannies, we will also provide those services at a very reasonable rate. You are welcome back anytime!

Beautifully designed villa in a great location. So comfortable and quiet, highly recommend. The area is very safe and beautiful and you can spend the entire time on the resort with quite a few restaurant options or can head about twenty minutes to Bavaro with the all-inclusive resorts for more nightlife choices. We absolutely loved how the entire resort felt so private, it is very easy to find yourself on an expansive beach with no one around. Loved zipping around on the golf cart! Could not recommend this are more, and this villa was one of the most beautiful that we saw. Simply a perfect vacation.

Having made numerous trips to the Dominican Republic, I can easily say that the Las Palmas residence is probably the finest in Punta Cana available for rental. Proximity to the golf course, a short walk to the beach and beach club, moments from the airport and village, the house itself is so comfortable and inviting that you never want to leave. The staff is excellent, attending to your every need. Las Palmas = Perfection!

What a perfect get away for a week with friends! We loved Las Palmas! The spacious and open layout of your home enabled the six of us to enjoy each other\'s company while providing plenty of personal space. Every aspect of this home was designed for comfort with luxurious detailing. We\'re already planning next yea\'s trip and will probably add two more to our group! Mornings began early for some of us - enjoying doffee around the pool or an early walk while other slept in. Breakfast in the outside dining area was always a treat - from amazing smoothies expertly prepared by your charming cook with local mangoes, bananas, pineapples to her wonderful banana pancakes topped with fresh pineapple! A late morning swim in your beautiful pool overlooking the golf course often followed breakfast. Some of us then headed to the sparkling beaches while others spent the day on the golf course. There were short trips into town for fresh fruit from a quaint stand plus a visit to the large outside market where we purchased beautiful jewelery and other items at a great price. We were impressed with how friendly and helpful everyone we met was throughout our visit. We felt really welcome in Punta Cana. We always reunited in the early evening for Happy Hour around the pool. Some evenings we then headed to one of the outstanding local restaurants, a short drive away, where we enjoyed fabulous seafood. The night usually ended around the pool where the combination of pool lighting and the star filled sky enhanced our evening swims. It was difficult to say goodbye to Las Palmas and return home to dreary weather, but great memories, my suntan and plans for our return trip keep me smiling. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home! Owner\'s Response It really is an incredibly spectacular villa and the location cannot be beat. It was designed with a tropical-Asian flair, and the openness allows for an even greater enjoyment of the beautiful landscaping, which is home to hummingbirds, woodpeckers, herons, geckos, etc. The view from the rear terrace at night is breathtaking, adn if you turn off all the pool and terrace lights, the stars and the moon shine brighter than anywhere I have ever been. Remember to use the outdoor jacuzzi and outdoor shoer next time, it also is spectacular at night. I\'m so glad to hear that you took advantage of the golf as well as the nearly deserted 3-mile long beach...pretty incredible, yes? Be sure to visit the Six Senses Spa next time... it is a high-end Balinese/Thai spa chain. For anyone thinking about renting my villa, I will guarantee that your vacation experience will exceed your expectations. It is luxury at its finest.
