DREAMS DO COME TRUE !!!! It was always our goal and dream to semi retire in this place we call PARADISE. After 30 years, it became a reality.
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 chilhood years, my parents lived here, when there were no roads, electricity or water supply. We used to come here by boat from Puerto Plata (North part of Island) or crossing the mountains (in Samana) by horses, a 4-5 hours ride, a real challenge and experience for my older sisters and myself.. After going back to Puerto Plata for school, we always came back and spent all summers, and special occasions here. My most wonderful 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, our mother and daughter Shitzsu dogs, Ali and Gia, after my own children were grown up, independent and away from home. IT IS OUR REAL PARADISE ON EARTH.
A very short walk- 1 minute - to a almost private beach
No crowds at any time
Fresh Seafood every day at our local Fish Market in Las Terrenas
Wonderful to relax
Very Tropical Landscape.
Need nightlife and other activities? Las Terrenas Village, 5 km away from the Villa, is a very unique, bohemian chic experience with a big mix of local Dominicans, Americans, French, Italian, Spanish, German and other Europeans living here full time, this makes the town of Las Terrenas an upscale Caribbean experience with amazing fine dining in wonderful restaurants along the coast, night clubs, bars and amazing bakeries where you can find very good fresh baked bread and pastries.
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.
You could not pick a better vacation house than Villa Mo. I have stayed at numerous Caribbean beach rentals, but they all fall short compared to Villa Mo. The house is open and inviting, room to be with a large group, or you can find a private nook. The outside is part of the house with wrap around decks with great views of the ocean. The bedrooms were spacious with great en suite bathrooms. We brought our 14 month old son, there was a crib for him to sleep in and the house was baby friendly. You could also enjoy the house adults only! Yanni is such a treasure, her cooking is delicious and she is incredibly sweet. Monica is a wonderful host, she goes out of her way to make sure your stay is perfect. The beach is great, easily accessible with nice sand and blue water. The pool is also a great feature. The only thing you will want at Villa Mo is a longer stay!
I don't really want to write a review, because if I am then honest then it will encourage people to stay here...and I want it for myself!!
Oh well, against my better judgement;
Monica is a wonderful host, always in the background respecting one's privacy but happy to help out on a moments notice. Yanni, cook / cleaner, feels like a member of the family to us after two visits to the property..although she seems to have trouble finding the butter every day, so if you stay (and if your Spanish is good) then ask her where it is will you??
Villa Mo is quiet, peaceful, happy, and a 45 second stroll away from the beach. Walking, Kiting, Kayaking, Sailing and some OK snorkeling all within walking distance. We rented a kayak from the resort 1/2 mile down the beach for $10US / hour. Surfing beaches are a short dive away, as are diving trips, fishing trips etc. This was our 20th trip to the Caribbean! ... and without a doubt the most relaxing and enjoyable ,not to mention excellent value for money. Thanks Monica and Yanni, we miss you, and see you again at Xmas!!. xoxoxo
We have stayed in Villa Mo for 7days and had a terrific time. The owner Monica is very helpful and friendly. The villa was clean and had a good location. The beach was 50 seconds away from Villa and almost a private beach. You can not imagine the beautiful color of ocean and also see the tropical fish around the coral reef. The cook and helper, Yani was a great and her dishes were extra ordinary. We over ate each time and still miss her taco! I highly recommend Villa Mo and you would not regret to choose it for your vacation!
First time staying at Villa Mo and it was the highlight of my Dominican Vacation. Let's start with the location of the villa as per my brother it takes 53 seconds to get to the beach (he recorded a video from the house to the beach). A great location only minutes from town. The owner and her beautiful dogs were there to welcome us and her staff was so amazing always making sure that we was happy at all time and cooking some amazing food. My family and I are going to come back soon to Villa Mo and would tell all of you guys out there to stay in this villa and see what I'm talking about.
Amazing home with all the amenities that makes for a perfect, relaxing vacation. Our 2nd time to stay at Villa Mo and even better than the first time. We especially love the beach location and the pool. Its pure paradise! In the house, each room is decorated with love, care & design details that make you feel special throughout your entire stay. The staff at Villa Mo is top notch and makes everyone feel at home. Yanni is well organized and is a sensational cook! We enjoyed every meal she made and now it is back to diets for us all. Thank you Monica for opening your beautiful home to share with us!
Great home and a great location on the beach. The house isbuper. We loved so much!!!
