LAS TERRENAS PARADISE

Samana Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

This is a free-standing villa located on a hilltop that is above the palm grove leading to the ocean, giving unrestricted views. It is 600 meters from the beach called Playa Coson, 1000 meters from the beach Playa Bonita, and three kilometres from Las Terrenas. The 360-degree views are phenomenal, looking over the ocean in one direction, and the mountains in the other. The private swimming pool has a 40-foot curved vanishing edge that capitalizes on the ocean view. The villa is over 4000 square feet and located on a 9500-square-meter ( 3 acres) of land. We have a full-time maid for cleaning, laundry, and cooking (if requested) as well as a caretaker for pool, building, and grounds maintenance. We have been told that pictures can never do justice to a place so beautiful, however, there are five photos on this listing if you would like to see more contact me at the email address given on this site and I will forward them to you.

Guestbook comments from the owner
in this remarkable space, you have created a harmonious melding of nature and man. The open vista gazing from the hilltop down to the azure sea below itself reinforced by the infinity pool is positively brilliant. I have been seeking this setting my entire adult life. I cannot imagine a more peaceful and positive way to start the day than in quiet contemplation gazing westward from here. I will carry this scene home with me as a delicious memory. Thank you.

We are both retired educators who have worked all over the world in our careers. We presently live in two places and travel extensively so we make the property available to others when we are not using it.

Scott Mashek purchased this villa in 2006

After living many places in the world with my job this location offered the combination of things that that could not compete with other places. It is truly a paradise.

All price ranges and variety of restaurants in the area each with its own unique ambiance. Multi-cultural community, English, French, Spanish, and Italian full time and part time residents. Many, many beaches to choose from, some with great snorkeling, others for surfing, boogie boarding, and kiting, while others as calm as a lake for children and adults to enjoy. Mountains close by for views, hiking, and exploring of waterfalls etc.

Amazing Time at Villa Mashek

  • 5 of 5
My family chose to stay in Villa Mashek for a weekend while in Las Terrenas, and we had an amazing time there. There was absolutely nothing we could complain about from the house itself, the staff and great location. The views alone are enough for one to be impressed. The home is kept in a very personable way, which allowed all of us to make ourselves comfortable and settle in immediately. The home staff were great people who helped us with every single thing we asked for. I would definitely recommend this to anybody, and we do intend to return to Villa Mashek in the future.

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Mashek for 10 days after Christmas and it exceeded our expectations despite other glowing reviews on VRBO. Villa Mashek, on a beautiful spot overlooking the ocean, is very well arranged - our family of 5 (kids aged 16, 13, and 9) were very comfortable in the house with 3 bedrooms (each with en suite baths). The house has a great collection of books, family games, DVDs - making it easy just to stay put and relax. We succeeded to lap up the tranquillity and peace. A truly spectacular beach is very accessible (15 min walk downhill). The lively town of Las Terrenas was also fun once you negotiate the traffic of motorbikes and quads. We took full advantage of local tour operators (Flora Tours was great) to explore the waterfall, national park and more remote beaches. Villa Mashek is also well looked after by the on-site caretaker who also cooks (which is nice because the kitchen takes some getting used to). All in all, a wonderful spot for a family vacation and we highly recommend it!

Second Time Visitor

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time my wife and I and her parents came home to this wonderful world on the hillside. You never get tired of the view, the pool and the smell of fresh air. The bedrooms are all wonderful but the Master is a dream. Lay in bed and look out overtop palms to the sea in the distance. The house has everything you need including internet for those who need to stay connected. The local town is charming and the beaches spectacular. The owners are a pleasure to deal with and obviously love their home. Look forward to returning next year or sooner!

Heaven

  • 5 of 5
The minute I arrived with my boyfriend at Jan and Scott's villa, I fell in love with the Dominican Republic all over again. We had not come to Las Terrenas since the new airport and highways opened: it is so easy now to travel from New York. This was the perfect romantic getaway: tranquility, peace and beauty. The view is absolutely stunning, the house charming with a perfect spot for every moment of the day, Bienvenida and Rafael are so kind and helpful and the location ideal if you want to be close to town -a short 10mn drive-, or the beach -a 15mn-walk-, while at the same time being isolated, as if in your own little heaven. Next time we come, I am not looking for any other place than his paradise villa!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5
We stood at the villa for 3 nights and it is the best place I've ever rented (we rent at least twice a year around the world). We were 8 members of our family and the villa is spacious enough that you don't feel crowed at all....but the best is the breath taking view from the moment you enter the from door. The rooms were very comfortable and the town of Las Terrenas is great for when you don't want to cook or to obtain a tour to many interesting places that surrond the area.

Thanks to Scott and Jan for having this great place and thanks to Bienvenida and Rafael for taking care of us during our stay.

April 2013 Visit

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent a week in April at Villa Mashek, and after our great experience we plan to spend more time there in the future. This is a beautiful house that is intelligently designed for the tropics. We were one family, but the place is perfectly suited for two families; the split wings on either side of the pool ensure privacy. The place is well kept, clean and spacious, and the kitchen large and well equipped. The pool is great, the 180 view is amazing at any time of day. The outdoor living room is large and comfy with cross ventilation- no need to be enclosed in this climate. For those who freak out at lizards or frogs (and the occasional mosquito)- you really shouldn't be traveling anywhere except an all inclusive resort anyway. The caretakers are wonderful people- to really get to know them some Spanish would be nice, but they will understand you. Bienvenida is a good cook, and Rafael her husband is the resident security/handyman. The best beach in Samana, Playa Coson, is a hike down the hill, about 15-20 minutes by foot, okay for those in relatively good shape, but tired kids will be unhappy on the way back up the hill. I would strongly suggest having a Quad or small car (check "SixT" car rental at El Catey Airport) for this place, as it is fun to go into Las Terrenas for restos/groceries/shopping/dancing, and this place is a bit far for regular motoconcho rides. We are reluctant to recommend this place too highly, as we want to guarantee our own spot in the future, but there we go. Really, just a wonderful place.
