Nestled on a towering hillside overlooking the north coast of the Dominican Republic is a vacation destination that makes even your wildest dreams seem tame. Our Golden Dolphin estate is situated on hundred acres of private Caribbean paradise. It all adds up to one unparalleled, unforgettable getaway.

Our expansive estate offers everything you need for a truly exquisite escape. Exceptional service and amenities, a spectacular and secluded location, exciting activities both on-site and in the surrounding area and the most precious luxuries of all — total privacy and the freedom to do exactly as you wish.

Golden Dolphin Villa features two magnificent buildings. The Main villa features 17,000 square feet of living space and the pool house features an additional 5500 square feet of living space.

The two buildings are rented together, so you will never have other guests around you, to ensure your total privacy.

The estate is located in the unique, rural community of Cabrera on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, and offers visitors several of the islands most pristine beaches with a true Dominican charm.

You won’t find any megaresorts in Cabrera, but you will find plenty of natural wonders and activities to enjoy over the course of your visit. Cabrera itself is a rustic oceanfront village known for friendly locals who enjoy relaxed island living.

About Anders Bogebjerg

My name is Anders Bogebjerg, and I am the promotions and sales manager for Golden Dolphin 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.

Anders Bogebjerg purchased this estate in 2001

An unforgettable stay at the Golden Dolphin

  • 4 of 5

This is probably one of the most unique villas that I've ever stayed in here in the Dominican Republic. The GOlden Dolphin is a totally cool place and very comfortable. I loved the huge balcony overlooking the lush grounds, the ocean and the small town of Cabrera. The breeze from the ocean makes the temperature so much more bearable than you can imagine and you don't even need to use the a/c.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The showers are a bit outdated, but at least water pressure is good. The staff is so excellent. Our chef cooked us fresh lobsters the first night and they were delicious! The only thing we were missing was a pool by the main house, but we could easily walk to the pool by the "pool house" (they said, however that they're going to build a second pool by the main house). A cool feature is the spa (!) where I got the best massage I've ever gotten here in the Dominican. Charlie, the villa manager, took us for a day trip to Las Terrenas...which is a gorgeous place. Playa Grande beach and golf course is also pretty close by.

As this is a big place, I would recommend for family/friends getaways or reunions ... You'll be well taken care of here.

WOW what a place! Fantastic place, great staff and food!

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual family vacation at the Golden Dolphin Villa, and everyone said that it was the best trip ever.

Normally we stay directly on the beac, but this year we wanted to try something different. After seeing the Golden Dolphin Villa and speaking to Anders about the place, we decided to book. Best decision ever!

The villa is just out of this world, a true Mansion!

Situated on the top of the mountain, we had the most amazing views of the landscape and the ocean. The staff in the villa was just fantastic, and catered to our every need. Charlie the villa manager on site, was hands on, and made our trip. We just had to ask, and he would make it happen.

One of the highlights was the baseball game at the villa. We had the two teals of locales come to the villa, and we got to play on the teams with them.

The food in the villa was spectacular, well prepared, presented and always tasteful.

The pool house was a great place to hang out during the day, and just relax and enjoy the nature.

We will take our family back to the Golden Dolphin villa again next year, as this was by far one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had.
