About the property


Welcome to Lake View Villa, a fantastic 8-bedroom villa with private swimming pool and Jacuzzi located at Cocotal Golf & Country Club in Bavaro, Punta Cana. The villa sits on hole #1 of the golf course, overlooking the lake and green and is just a few hundred yards walking distance from the golf clubhouse where you’ll find a common swimming pool area with kids’ pool, exotic Bali beds, bars and restaurants.

Lake View Villa is located on a quiet cul-de-sac and welcomes you through double front doors straight into the spacious and bright living- and dining room area, from where you have direct access to a large terrace, pool area and tropical garden.

The living room is the place to lounge and entertain; it has a 60-inch flat screen television with cable TV and large, roomy sofas where you can relax and feel at home. The dining room is set up with a large square dining table with room for 16 persons – or you can choose to dine outside on the terrace.

The spacious kitchen is fully equipped and designed for a real chef – which comes included in your villa rental. Your chef will prepare all of your meals as requested and planned prior to your arrival, so you have less to worry about during your vacation.

2 of the bedrooms are located downstairs with direct walkout to the pool and garden area. Upstairs you will find 3 bedrooms on one side of the villa and a master bedroom on the other side of the villa. The master has a large balcony with incredible golf and lake views. The last 2 bedrooms are located in a separate guesthouse - one bedroom downstairs with direct access to pool and garden and another upstairs with a balcony. All bedrooms can be set up with either 1 king or 2 twin beds and have ample closet space as well as its own private bathroom.

The Lake View Villa comes with its own full-time French GOURMET chef (He has worked in Michelin Star Restaurants). We also have 2 maids and an English speaking butler, so you don’t have to lift a finger and can just focus on relaxing and having a good time.

The villa is conveniently located by the main entrance of Cocotal Golf & Country Club. Across the street from the entrance (within easy walking distance), you will also find the Palma Real Shopping Village, which has lots of shops, restaurants & bars (incl. Hard Rock Café, Outback Steakhouse, etc.), a supermarket, a nightclub, and more. This is one of the most attractive places to go out in the evenings.

Please note that the Lake in front of the villa cannot be used for any water activities, such as swimming, boating etc.

As a guest staying at Lake View Villa, you have privileged access to Jellyfish Beach Club & Restaurant located on the beautiful Bavaro Beach (approx. 5-7 min from the villa). Roundtrip transportation is included throughout your stay (must be pre-booked and subject to availability. Your villa manager can book the transportation for you). Jellyfish is one of the most famous beach clubs in Bavaro, its facilities include a restaurant & bar and a beach lounge – with the best view of the ocean!

About Anders Bogebjerg

My name is Anders Bogebjerg, and I am the property manager of Lake View Villa. 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.

Anders Bogebjerg purchased this villa in 2015

Why Anders Bogebjerg chose Bávaro

We manage several properties in the area , and when we came to see the Lake View Villa, we fell in love with the place. We love the villa and the unique location and the views, so we took it over and started the complete renovation of the place. Initially it was a 6 bedroom, but we have built a new guest house in the garden with an additional 2 bedrooms, making it an 8 bedroom villa. We have tried to keep the whole renovation of the property in a modern beach-like style, all in white/black with a few touches of color here and there.

An Outstanding Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to the DR with 15 of my friends to celebrate my 40th Birthday. I started planning this girls trip a year before arrival and the house manager, Bodil, did an outstanding job over the course of 12 months helping me with important decisions to ensure a successful trip.

We have never stayed at such a wonderful house!!! The online description is extremely accurate. The house and surrounding property is very serene, clean and is furnished with everything vacationers might want. We were able to have our professional photoshoot at the house and the pictures are perfect with the beautiful villa in the background.

The staff is top notch - Butler/House Manager -Jose and Bodil, Chef - Bernard and Maids - Maria. The staff was such a joy to work with and very accommodating. Bernard created amazing food for my cocktail hour, a special six course dinner and cake for the birthday party. I could go on and on about the service and how much I enjoyed all of the staff. Bernard was in the kitchen all day preparing wonderful meals. Jose ensured we had transportation and he exceeded our expectations.

The bedrooms are perfect and the beds are comfortable. What more could you want. I also had positive online interactions with the owner and financial manager. For those wanting to just get away from it all and rest, this house would be great. We have recommended this house to family and friends. In summary, I cannot say enough about this wonderful vacation home away from home. We plan to visit again and use other properties from this owner. Anders - your staff is a class act! Please send my regards. Thank you again! Aretha (AJ)

A 4 night trip with 15 of my friends and family for a bachelor party/golf trip to the Lakeview Villa was simply not enough time, we are already planning our return trip ASAP. I did not expect that organizing a trip with this large of a group would be so easy. Helena & Bodil were outstanding and made sure everything was taken care of, explained and follow up on prior to our departure. My friends thought I was some sort of expert trip planner, little did they know, I had the best coordinators taking care of us. I thought we were in pretty good hands before the trip...I had no idea it would get even better once we arrived and met the Lakeview Villa staff! From arrival to departure we were provided with the best private luxury experience hands down! Chef Bertland's meals were absolutely amazing, he catered to all of our needs, even as going as far as making sure we have extra lunch and dinner left over each for late night trips to the kitchen. The Sunday BBQ spread to watch the NFL playoff games was truly epic, the only time I will taste wings that good, is when I go back to Lakeview Villa to get some more of Chef Bertland's food. The maids were extremely nice, made us feel very welcome and at ease. Jose, the villa manager was the trip MVP. Anything and everything we asked him for, was happily taken care of. He helped organize all of our tee times, and at a moments notice since it was hard to leave poolside in this luxurious villa. Jose even went as far as reaching out to me after we checked out, later that night, to make sure everything went OK with the group getting back home safely. You can't teach Jose's customer service, he's the best on the island!! epic views, epic food, epic service, do yourself a favor and book a trip asap to Lakeview Villa, you will NOT be disappointed.

Expert staff + beautifully appointed house + sunshine = great vacation!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The 7 fellas golf trip has called Lake View Villa our base for the past three years. There's a reason why we keep coming back and staying here. The combination of very comfortable rooms, a spacious house inside and outside, a staff that is attentive to every need, and a chef who will thrill even the most discriminating pallet makes this an experience worth enjoying. Since our last visit, Sonos was added making the sound experience inside and outside even more integral to the experience. Next year we are back to 8 guys and will be comfortable and spoiled, just like we want. A must stay for groups or families!!!

Lake View Villa Review

  • 5 of 5

The house is v close to the large pool which is part of the golf club-a great asset for kids (and also adults). The favoriate day for the whole family was the boat excursion. So fun the closest beach is jellyfish beach- about 5-10 Min away. V nice and good restaurant there. Jose, the house manager, was wonderful The chef, Bertrand, was excellent. The whole family enjoyed his meals and he graciously accommodated 2 pestararians and a glutin free nephew ea meal.

Amazing Staff & A Great Time

  • 4 of 5

This is our 6th Annual Thanksgiving Vacation this by far has been our 2nd best. From the moment of booking with Bodil and speaking with Anders personally regarding my desires. I was well taken care of and was able to plan a Holiday dinner for 22, Family picture, Private Catamaran, and Dirt Buggie Adventure. The house was large enough to host 22 people for Thanksgiving Dinner. The staff at this property was AMAZING!! We did not feel watched or overcrowded by them. Chef B prepared brunch & dinner w/ dessert...Oh My Gosh everything that came out the kitchen was delicious. Our family staying on another property wanted to take him. The concierge Jose was The Best! Very informative of the island and things to keep everyone busy. He went above and beyond to ensure we needed for nothing. The housekeepers were very kind and promptly cleared tables and kept everything tidy. They really made the stay a 5Star.

I would have given this property a 3 star because the house lacks the luxury it deserves. The palette of the property is white but it is all IKEA furnishings and linens. This property, its location, and cost one would expect a bit of luxury. A white palette is hard to keep sparkling white and unfortunately it makes one think that items aren't clean. Nonetheless, my family and I had a very relaxing and pampered holiday vacation.

Outstanding from arrival to departure!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year to the Lakeview Villa - hard to believe but this years Villa exoerience was even better than our last years trip. This is due to the outstanding Villa staff.

Outstanding support from Jose the House manager- His 24 Hr service could not have been any better. Jose is always one step ahead of what ever you need. Chef Beltran out did himself again with his expert cooking and those 5 star desserts. Our Golf trip ran like clock work. Thank you Anders for making our booking EZ and stress free. We can't wait to return next year.
