DREAMS DO COME TRUE !!!! It was always our goal to semi retire in this place we call PARADISE.
Monica Paiewonsky de Almanzar purchased this villa in 2010
This land was my grandfather's farm since 1937. My father, a agricultural engineer, came to live here as a newlywed in 1953. During my early years, my family lived here, where there were no roads, electricity or water supply. We came by boat from Puerto Plata or crossing the mountains by horses, a real experience for me and my sisters. After going back to Puerto Plata for school year, we always came back and spent all summers, and special ocassions. My most wonderfull memories are of this place and I made my dream come true when it was the right time to build our house and live here all year round with my husband, after my own children were grown up. This is the real Paradise on earth.
Very Short walk to a almost private beach, no crowds at any time, Fresh Seafood every day, Wonderful to relax, Very Tropical Landscape.
Need nightlife? Las Terrenas Village with its wonderfull restaurants, night clubs and bars.. 4 kms from Villa
We stayed for New Year's Eve with all the family. Enjoyed the wonderful beach and the wonderful place.
Muy agradecidos del personal en la Villa, sobretodo Yani.
Excelente Villa Mo.
I mean it, the best holiday EVER!! And I have had a lot of them. We always visit a different country in the Carribbean for vacation, and always take a house through VRBO, but never has every single expectation been surpassed. The location, comfort, privacy, food, beaches, locals, wind (I am an avid kiter) ..everything was wonderful. Monica and Yanni are so kind, hospitable and generous of their time. On the rare occasions that we left the property, we enjoyed the surrounding area very much but we really just did not want to leave! We did a very enjoyable horse back trip up in to the hills to visit 'el limon' waterfall, and Monica was so kind to drive us there and to negotiate with the guides for us. We were always so well taken care of! 6 stars out of 5!! Miss you Monica and Yanni xxxx
Our family recently spent an incredible week at Villa Mo over Spring Break. The house was spacious, comfortable and breezy and the beach access was perfect. The beach is beautiful and private so there are not many reasons to leave the property. The small pool was perfect for the kids. Monica was wonderful, warm and hospitable. She is discrete but was always available if we needed her or had any questions. She was resourceful and helped us plan our activities, transportation and restaurants reservations. She made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. Yanni, who helps around the house during the day and prepares the food is great. The rooms were always promptly done up in the morning and the food was well prepared, delicious and ready on time. The town of Las Terrenas is less than 10mins away by car and easy to access. We look forward to many more vacations at Villa Mo!
We’ve been travelling a lot around the world, and we must say we’ve found a real gem which is the villa MO. The place is worth a five stars hotel: secluded, comfortable, clean, peaceful, decorated with taste, a pleasure for the eyes. We’ve been struck by the configuration of this big and nice house, completely open to the outside and the trade winds. The outdoor living room was indeed our favorite place from where we could enjoy the pleasures of life while keeping an eye on the kids playing in the swimming pool. A paradise for the kids who had all the lawn under the coconut trees to play and the beach a few steps from home with a clear and calm ocean perfect for swimming. The beach is also a very good spot for kite surfing.
Last but not least: Monica the owner and Yani the cook who are indeed lovely persons always responding to all your needs but never intrusive. Yani is a great cook, we have enjoyed every meal she was preparing, always smiling and singing. A million thanks to them both, they are great people with a very sharp sense of hospitality.
We began our trip by learning... no rental car was there which we had two confirmation emails for. Suggest planning to just skip driving in this country. Monica was helpful when we had to drop our bags off since we had a change of initial plans. Right off the start her kindness helped to ease the hearts of us weary travelers. We had a great time learning more about the area, Samana is a beautiful city, the private island we took a boat for lunch was worth it, the four wheelers to see the coffee bean farm, tobacco farm, etc. was such a memorable part of our trip. We also had a nice fire on the beach one evening. Watching the kite surfers on the beach in the afternoon was relaxing -- what a workout that appears to be. From Yanni cooking to Monica's help with the market, places to go, setting up taxi cabs, etc. we were more than taken care of. The Dominican Breakfast we had -- was amazing and we are still trying to make it back home. Great stay for the time we were here! Walk to town on the beach....see the area... take it all in... and enjoy it!
This year, our family decided to "skip" Christmas and opted for a week in the Dominican Republic. Villa Mo was a GREAT choice. From the minute we arrived, we were greeted warmly by Monica and Yanni and made to feel like special guests. The fully equipped villa is lovely and a beautiful beach is just steps away. The meals that Yanni prepared for us were amazing and we never had leftovers! Monica was so helpful providing guidance and ideas for activities and sites in the area for us to see.
The day we left, I actually cried- I did not want to leave. I felt so relaxed and happy during our stay and I give 100% credit to Monica for making our "Skip Christmas" vacation a holiday to remember. I can't wait to come back and make this an annual trip for our family. Thank you Monica and Yanni for a truly memorable and wonderful vacation.
Nuestra estadía en Villa Mo fue excelente, excelente playa, arena fina, Monica es una excelente anfitriona, todo muy detallado, un servicio de mucama y cocinera muy buena. La villa fue muy pacifica y lejos de todo ademas de hermosa. Planeamos volver pronto.
