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. 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, right off the best beach of Las Terrenas (Playa Las Ballenas), within small and secure residence (only 12 owners) and our house is NOT a condo, it has a house feel and is very private. 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. Our rental manager is very thorough, speaks several languages and ensures that the house is always well kept for your stay!

Petit coin de paradis
La villa est très bien située à quelques minutes de la mer dans un endroit charmant,tranquille et très sécuritaire.De plus une personne est toujours disponible sur place pour répondre à nos questions et aider en cas de besoin.Nous avons loué pour 6 semaines et vraiment c’est le paradis.La villa est super confortable.Tout est conforme à ce qui était écrit sur le site Homeaway.La propriétaire est d’une très grande efficacité,pas de problème pour la rejoindre..Une place à ne pas manquer.merci pour tout.Claire et Alain
Merci Claire et Alain! Cela est un plaisir de vous recevoir et j’espère que vous reviendrez!
We had a great stay. As a family of 4 it was a good size for us and we loved the location. We ended up using the air conditioning at night despite the warnings of the high fees. The $60 was well worth being able to sleep at night(14 nights). We definitely would stay here again.
tout était comme sur le site , aucune déception , vraiement un bel endroit
a notre arrivée Alex nous attendait , nous avons fait le tour de la propriété , tout en nous expliquant comment ca fonctionnait
nous étions a 300 metres d'une tres belle et immense plage , nous nous croyons seul , malgré qu'il y avait beaucoup de personnes
d'excellents restaurants a proximité
aller faire nos course , n'était pas un probleme , 15 a 20 minutes a pieds
j'ai du poser une question a Sveta par courriel , réponse en 15 minutes , ce qui est a mon avis mieux que dans certains resorts
en résumé les points négatifs sont plus nombreux dans notre vie quotidienne , que ceux que nous avons vécus a Las terrenas
en terminant , merci Sveta de nous avoir fait connaitre ce coin de paradis
Merci beaucoup d'avoir pris le temps d'écrire. I am very happy you had such a good time at our villa and we try to provide the best client experience possible as we understand that your vacation time is precious :)
Hope to see you again!
J'espère vous revoir!
Could not choose a better place to stay !
The Villa Shalom is as described, we felt like home and secure all the time. Nice patio surrounded by marvelous plants and birds song. Everything went fine, no trouble to get fresh water or gas. We went to the village by foot for our shopping and got delivery at home, we included (supermercado Pola or Lindo). A couple of minutes walk to the pretty beach of Las Balenas where you can rent a chair in some places. The owner, Sveta, answer all our questions promptly before we left and still in our stay. Her representative at Las Terrenas was also quite friendly.
One of these days we will go back to that lovely place !
Many thanks Sveta
Thank you so much, JD and F! I am glad you enjoyed it as much as we do and you are welcome back anytime!
Sehr schönes Appartment in 4-Parteien haus
Die sehr schöne und sehr gut ausgestattete Wohnung ist unweit vom Strand gelegen. Durch die 24/7 Bewachung und das abgeschlossene Tor, welches miteinander Fernbedienung geöffnet werden kann, ist es sehr sicher. Der Stromverbrauch war, da wir die Klimaanlage aus und die Ventilatoren genutzt haben marginal. Der Kontakt vor Ort war sehr gut und das Ein- und Aus-checken hat bestens geklappt. Die Internetverbindung ist gut.
Die Betten sind auch sehr gut. Insgesamt hat es uns bei Sveta sehr gut gefallen und wir können die Wohnung nur weiterempfehlen.... Vielen Dank!!!
Oliver und Daniela
