About Anders Bogebjerg
My name is Anders Bogebjerg, and I am part "owner" of Palmera Penthouse. 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 bought Palmera Travel together with my wife, Rawnie Hansen. As the years went by, our company grew and expanded into Group Palmera. Today, we specialize in offering luxury vacation rental properties and customizing vacation packages for travelers from around the world.

Why Anders Bogebjerg chose Bávaro
I love the location of this condo, the beach and the views from the rooftop terrace! When we took over the condo, it was an older unit that needed some work, so we did a complete renovation of the place. Initially, it was a 4-bedroom condo with a lot of wasted space and a roof that wasn't used for anything. We decided to transform it into a 6-bedroom and take half of the space of the rooftop terrace to build 2 additional bedrooms and a bathroom up there. We managed to transform this property into a modern beach-like condo and decided to keep the decor very simple with all white/black furniture with a few touches of color here and there.
What makes this Condo unique
Palmera Penthouse is located in Los Corales in the heart of Bavaro. You are within walking distance to so many restaurants (including the only vegan restaurant in Bavaro!), several bars, bakeries, cafes, mini markets, etc. Apart from that, you have a private beach area with private beach lounge chairs that belong to the condominium.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had a family of 8 stay at this property and we all got the all-inclusive package. The staff including the villa manager (Alix), the housekeeper (Flor) and the chef (Roidy) were all amazing. They each went out of their way to make sure our family was enjoying every aspect of our vacation.
Dream Bachelorette Party Getaway!
My friends and I had an absolutely amazing stay at the Penthouse Palmera. Anders and Bodil provided very responsive communication from the time of booking up until arrival. Viviana was a superb coordinator on the ground and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. The penthouse is spacious, clean, and very well decorated. The location is simply blissful as it is situated on the beach and near great restaurants in walking distance. Its also a very quiet and relaxing area. Spectacular service all around!
We had such a great time- accommodations were wonderful and we were taken care of at every step of the way! Location is close to beach, restaurants and shopping. We were sad to leave -would go back in a minute!
The property and staff
The property is well maintained and very clean. The staff and manager are excellent. The location of the property is stepped away from beach and all good restaurants and also very safe, secured in gated community.
Beautiful property! 30 seconds to the beach with excellent customer service - property mgmt & housekeeper & chef (I hired the chef for the day and totally worth it)
Few minor things to be aware of but not a big deal. Internet and one of the showers hot water weren't working the first day but as soon as we raised the issue Viviana took care off it. Also, alcohol in the house is pricey ($50 USD for a 12-pack of beer). It's best to make one trip to Jumbo and stock up on the alcohol and food. Overall great experience and enjoyed by entire group. Would most definitely stay here again.
Hi Cindy, thank you for your wonderful review. I am happy you had a great stay. I just wanted to clarify regarding the price of the 12-pack of beer that you mentioned. I see from your checkout bill that we only charged you US$ 1.93 per beer / US$ 23.16 for 12 beers, including our standard 15% shopping fee. You had some other beverages on your bill and for the total, we did charge you around US$ 50 - however, not for the beers alone! Cheers and we hope to have you come stay with us again soon! Best regards, Anders
We had a very good stay at this beachfront villa. We were an extended family of 8 and the accommodations were more than adequate in terms of size. Here are the positives: Two of our primary criteria were location and security. In terms of location, the villa is only a 30 second walk to the lovely Bavaro beach. Also, there are many good restaurants within walking distance both in the small town of Los Corales (e.g., Citrus, Wacamole, Diala's, etc.) and on the beach. In terms of security, the villa is in a gated area with security guards on patrol. The beach is great --- a long stretch of white sand. Yes, seaweed has been washing up on shore, but not enough to detract from the experience. My wife and I enjoyed the sunrise over the water nearly every day. Spectacular! The staff, Viviana (the Villa Manager) and Flor (maid) were fantastic. Viviana is very gracious and more than willing to help by providing very good information and advice. Flor is a very pleasant and conscientious person who was very kind to my mother-in-law who, due to her age and health, spent a lot of time in the villa. The villa itself is spacious and we really enjoyed spending time on the rooftop terrace in the mornings and evenings. The only downside (and the reason for 4 vs. 5 stars) was the fact that the plumbing was less than stellar. Two of the toilets had some issues and the water pressure was sometimes low --- and a few times non-existent. I'm guessing this might be more of a reflection on the water in the local area, not just this villa. It would also be a good idea to have a few more basics available (e.g., sugar for coffee/tea) that folks are likely to need right away. The bottom line, however, is that we enjoyed our villa experience and recommend this property to others.
Located close to nightlife and clubs like the famous Coco Bongo nightclub. Punta Cana is the “tourism capitol” of the Dominican Republic. Located on the southeast coast of the Dominican Republic, this destination is most famous for its world class beaches and championship golf courses. There are also plenty of fun excursions and activities available in the area.
