About Sveta Melchuk
Hi, we live in Montreal, Canada and we are tired of the cold and the snow! My husband, Avi, is a general contractor and master renovator and I run a Home Staging/Decorating business. We have 4 kids (well, teenagers and almost adults :)) which still keep us busy! Between us, we speak several languages - English, French, Russian, Hebrew and we are in the process of learning Spanish. Our family loves to travel, especially to warm destinations as we definitely lack the warmth and the sun here!
Sveta Melchuk purchased this villa in 2012
Why Sveta Melchuk chose Las Terrenas
It has been our dream for a while to have a place somewhere warm and close to the beach. In 2010, as we vacationed in the Dominican Republic, we heard about a new residential project in Las Terrenas. We went there for the day and fell in love!
We decided on this particular project because of its location, proximity to the beach and the quality of construction.
Our dream has finally come through and, every time we get a chance to go to our little paradise, we enjoy Las Terrenas more and more. We know you will too!
What makes this villa unique
We fell in love with the European feel of the village first, it's French and Italian ambiance, restaurants and, of course, the beaches!
The location is great, it is a very small community (only 12 owners) and our house is NOT a condo, it has a house feel and is very private.
We followed the construction step by step through regular email and photo updates from the builder and we visited during the construction. We were able to add and modify some features in the house to suit our needs and taste to make it more functional for us and our guests. When the house was completed (in December 2012), we spent 2 weeks there, setting the household up and decorating it. We wanted to insure that our guests will lack for nothing!
We come to LT regularly and make sure that the house is in the very best condition and nothing is amiss. We treat our guests as we would like to be treated.
Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I stayed at Villa Shalom for 2 weeks in June. We had a fantastic time and we highly recommend staying over there for the following reasons: 1- The villa is newly constructed--everything is new and clean. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances in excellent condition. The washing machine was much appreciated. 2- The villa's location is excellent--everything is within walking distance. The beach is about 2 blocks away; the fishermen's villa about half a mile; and the main grocery store, Lindo's, about a mile away. 3- Communication with Sveta, the owner, and with the local rental agent, Florence, was extremely reliable. Sveta is not only prompt in her responses, but she is sweet and courteous as well. 4- We LOVE Las Terrenas. If you love walking, exploring local culture, eating local food, oh, and fantastic French pastries, Las Terrenas is the place! We think Las Terrenas is the future in the DR and we highly recommend that you go there and stay at Sveta’s lovely and conveniently-located villa.
