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!

Fabulous house in a beautiful part of the world.

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families staying in Lorenzo's house. Loads of room for everyone. Great location on the 1st tee, only a couple of hundred metres from the club house, beach and large pool.

Julianna and Amanda were amazing and looked after us so well. The food was gorgeous and I highly recommend that you use Julianna. Great holiday had by all. Lorenzo could not be more helpful. There If you needed him but not at all intrusive.

Highly recommend this place for a really relaxing holiday.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We went for 5 days 7 adults and 2 kids. Lorenzo and Julianna made sure we had everything we needed for a great vacation. The ocean is warm and crystal clear. The house is really comfortable, eating in the open air is a treat. Lots to do on the resort, especially loved swimming the lagoons at the ecological reserve. Thank you both for taking great care of us!

50th Anniversary !!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just celebrated our 50th anniversary and choose this property to do so. We were there July 22nd - 29th. I must say after spending many hours searching listings to decide, we made the right choice If you decide to rent Lorenzo's home you will not be disappointed in any way. We took our Son, daughter-in-law and 3 grandchildren with us and the kids said "this was the best vacation they ever had". Now coming from teenagers that is a true testament. Let me tell you two reasons why this property delivers:

first and most important is your host, Lorenzo. He begins by picking you up at the airport which doesn't sound like much but that is just the start. He then will take you to the grocery store or anywhere else to help you with your stay. He is a great source of local information and will help keep you from making mistakes. All we had to do was send him a text and he responded. The second reason is Julianna. We wanted to bring her home with us. She is there to truly make your stay wonderful. She does the normal things you would expect like keeping the home clean and picked up but we found her to be a very warm and caring person that we enjoyed spending time with. She isn't a trained chef but let me tell you, have her cook for you and you won't want to go out. We had her prepare 4 evening meals for us and each one was superb. She would go to the store with you and Lorenzo and select the food to prepare for what you want and then prepare it for you. We just asked her to make traditional Dominican dishes and we were blown away with how good the food was.

Going out to local restaurants in the Dominican is expensive and we found that Julianna's food was better easier for us and much less expensive.

Lorenzo's home is spacious and well equipped as advertised. We had more than enough space for all of us. The open living design of the home is inviting and comfortable but you have plenty of areas to be alone or private if you wish. We spent most of our time on the rear patio by the pool and had all our meals there rather than in the dining room.

You will want to make sure you visit the ecological park and swim in the clear water pools. I think the kids found that to be one of the highlights. We also enjoyed to closeness to the wonderful beach at the club just across the golf course from the house. You will find the Punta Cana resort property to be wonderfully well groomed, clean beautiful and safe. Don't hesitate. Please!!

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!
