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.
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.
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.
My family and I stayed at the villa for a few nights in July during our 2 weeks stay in the Dominican Republic. It was unanimous that this was our favorite location during our entire trip. The villa is gorgeous, the views are spectacular and the in house service is friendly and helpful. The best part and most memeorable part of our trip was returning to the villa after sightseeing and going for a swim while taking in the amazing views. We definitely plan on returning very soon!!!!
The house is very well located, very welcoming, very quiet, we feel immediately at home. It's a very beautiful place. We highly recommend this house. We were very happy to find always Bien and Rafaël for any issus and it was a pleasure to have always a house very clean. Thank you so much. We were confidente with them. La maison est très accueillante, très calme, on se sent tout de suite comme chez soi. Une vue exceptionnelle, avec une piscine superbe. Nous recommandons vivement cette maison. Bien et Rafaël sont vraiment disponibles et serviables. Un grand merci.
We spent a wonderful week at this villa in the Dominican Republic. The pictures online are accurate and reflect a well cared for and ideal home for our stay. The view is amazing and the pictures do not capture the relaxing feelings you get sitting on the couch or while swimming in the pool looking at the ocean and the palm trees below you. All rooms are well appointed and the beds were comfortable. There is a full kitchen at your disposal. There is no ac but that is a part of the charm. The fans in each room kept us cool. The bedrooms are screened and we never had any troubles with bugs at all during our stay, inside or out! The area is still developing but we found many good food and drink places in town. There is even a grocery store in town and was easy to find on google maps. Go to the beach! it was amazing and no one was on the beach. There was a great food shack called LUIS and it was great! We were really able to relax and unwind and just enjoy the view and pool. The onsite care takers were great. Bien kept the home clean and her husband kept the pool clean. They do not speak english but were able to communicate well with my broken Spanish and hand motions. We really feel that our two children will enjoy coming with us next summer. The beach and the coral and the waves were amazing! The hosts were great! They answered every question resolved any issue with ease to help us prepare easily for our trip. Thank you to the Mashek's for sharing their wonderful home with us! We look forward to returning again next year!

Spanish: Villa Mashek, hermoso lugar, tranquilo, acogedor, un lugar excelente para disfrutar y descansar. Bienva y su esposo Rafael, excelentes anfitriones, y la comida sabrosa. En cuanto a la Villa, todo perfecto: las habitaciones, los baños, la cocina y la piscina perfecta. Gracias Scott, estoy segura que mi familia y yo volveremos pronto, quedamos maravillados. Saludos, Aleida.
The villa was perfect for our family of four which included two teenage sons. Bien and Rafael are wonderful, warm people who went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. Bien cooked dinner for us two evenings and the food was outstanding. Scott was extremely helpful and accommodating from stocking our groceries to arranging quads and recommending activities. The villa is incredibly beautiful, with comfortable open-air living room, cozy bedrooms and gorgeous baths, well appointed kitchen and spectacular views. We felt at home immediately. It was the perfect spot for some much needed R&R. We will return! Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise!
As per the website description, the pictures do not make justice to Villa Mashek in Las Terrenas. The place is unbelievable and the view is truly breathtaking. Since our first night at Villa Mashek, Bienvenida and Rafael (villa’s caretakers) made sure our stay would be a great and unforgettable one. The villa is very comfortable and the open space makes for amazing views, a comfortable and fresh environment. Villa Mashek comfortably accommodates 6-8 people and there is plenty of room to relax and unwind. Should you decide to leave the Villa, the proximity to the town of Las Terrenas made it very easy for our grocery shopping and beach outings (about a 5 to 10 minute drive). The people in Las Terrenas were friendly and willing to help us out in any way. My favorite spot was Luis' restaurant. This restaurant reminded me so much of home, as the menu was laid out in a cooler for our picking. The food and service were amazing. Everyone enjoyed this lunch and the Pina Coladas inside the actual pineapple.
I can't speak enough of Benvenida and Rafael. They were very hospitable, friendly and attentive during the entire week. They made sure the villas, as well as our entire group, were taken care of. They are truly genuine and humble people and I can see why you chose them to be the caretakers of your property.
I can’t speak enough of the amazing time I spent at Villa Mashek. The only recommendation I can provide is to experience it for yourself.
The area has kite surfing,deep sea fishing, sailboarding,'quad'/4 wheel trails,coffee and cocoa farm tours, contact me for an extensive list of activites in the area.
