About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 4, Pool, A/C bedrooms, close to the best beach

Our villa (2012 construction) is located in a very quiet and secure residential complex 300 m from the most beautiful beach of Las Terrenas, Playa Ballenas.

The complex is walled in and a security guard is on duty 24 hours. With only 3 buildings of 4 units each, it is very private and peaceful. The common pool is located right next to the house. There is ample parking inside the complex for your car or a four wheeler.

The house is 1000 sq feet total living space and a magnificent terrace with a private front and side tropical garden. A very inviting outdoor patio set will entice you to spend quite a bit of time outside, enjoying a coffee (or a drink) or just reading ...

The main floor comprises a nice size outdoor terrace, an open area for the kitchen, living room as well as dining area and a powder room. The second floor holds the 2 Air Conditioned bedrooms and a full bathroom with a shower. The master bedroom has a nice balcony overlooking the surrounding area. The master bedroom is equipped with a queen size bed and the guest (or kids') bedroom with two single beds. The top quality mattresses were brought from Canada. The bathroom is modern and functional.

Several powerful ceiling fans will keep you cool at all times - on the patio, in the kitchen, in the living room, and in the bedrooms. The 2 bedrooms are Air conditioned as well. A large TV, cable service and Internet are available in the house. There is a multimedia unit with a movie library as well. We have installed a safe in the house, operated by a code of your choice. The house lodges up to 4 people comfortably.

A super Broiler King BBQ is provided and available for your use. The house is fully equipped and tastefully decorated.

Full kitchen with a microwave and a mixer as well as a washing machine. New ventilation for the bathrooms. New cement walkway to the house. Ample storage in the kitchen and closets.

Our on site property manager will meet you, help you get settled and will assist you should you need anything. She speaks English, French, Dutch, and Spanish.

Some of the best beaches are within easy reach. You can walk to the Playa Ballenas or Playa Las Terrenas beaches or take a local motorcycle taxi (moto concho) or drive a few minutes to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world (Playa Coson or Playa Bonita). Several top notch restaurants are within walking distance as well. Pueblo de los Pescadores (Fishermen Village) holds many excellent eateries and the village has many more - French, Spanish, Italian, Dominican, French Boulangerie, Steak house, excellent pizza places, etc. You will have an amazing time at Villa Shalom and in Las Terrenas, guaranteed!

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful condo in Las Terrenas .We absolutely loved the place, the people and the lifestyle.

We found the people so caring and so helpful and very humble. Loved the beach and had many a drink at the bar. Loved Fishermen' Village and ate at the Lazy Dog and the Italian place.The French Pastry place in the Sq. was fantastic... Lee and I can't say enough about our experience.

Thank you again Sveta . We have had a wonderful time and an adventure which we'll never forget

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

  • 5 of 5

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

Could not choose a better place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

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
