About Carl-Philippe Mangones

We've been married for 9 years and have a wonderful baby girl of 8 years of age. We love the water and enjoy our weekends on our boat!

Carl-Philippe Mangones purchased this villa in 2014

Why Carl-Philippe Mangones chose Dominican Republic North Coast

This was love at first site! We first bought our boat in 2012 and in 2013 we bought our first house on the beach (Villa Mango).

A year later, we found this great opportunity to buy our second house. We jumped on the occasion and remodeled it by today's standards, this was certainly the second best real estate decision we have taken in our 9 years of marriage.

This is truly a unique paradise far from the big crowd!

What makes this villa unique

Beach House right on the bay, with protection from the Atlantic big waves. This is the perfect spot for the family and small kids to enjoy the tranquility of calm waters. Punta Rucia is still a quiet and secret touristic site away from the big crowd. This is a small town where everyone knows each other by name and live in harmony. This is truly the perfect spot to disconnect and have true relaxing vacations.

Great Villa - Fabulous People

  • 4 of 5

We stayed the entire month of January 1017 at Villa Gabi. The villa is comfortable and looks exactly like the pictures.

Staff - FABULOUS!! Warm, welcoming and they took excellent care of the villa and anything we needed. Kleiby, Melatise and Alfonso couldn't have done more to make our stay any better.

Beach - Just a few steps away is a beautiful, swimmable beach and a day resort with plenty of beach beds/chairs, drinks and food. They were extremely accommodating and the prices were great.

Villa - Actually a bit nicer than pictured, housekeeping daily, grounds maintained daily, security all night. Not that you need security. It was safe and you are more likely to get mugged in Hawaii than here. We enjoyed it.

Negatives - Only one and that is more comfortable furniture in the living room would be nice. If you have more than a couple people there really isn't any comfortable seating as the sofa is small and boxy and the other chairs are like director's chairs. Also, mosquito nets on the beds would be a must if we were to go back.

AND - the mosquitos. Brutal. Bring lots and lots and lots of repellant - You'll need it.

Overall it was a fantastic experience and we would highly recommend this villa. The local people are wonderful and we made lifelong friends. Worth every penny to stay here.

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

Have traveled all over Central America and a lot of the Caribbean, and this has to be my favourite spot. The house is great, the local people are wonderful, and the town is great. As the other reviews state, truly relaxing place and a great way to experience the Dominican Republic.

Great house. Excellent people

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mango was the perfect place for our vacation. The house is nicely laid out and 70 ft from the beach! The town of punta rucia is small and very friendly. We enjoyed walks along the beach, strolling down the unpaved main street and meeting the people of the town. Great communication from the owners and the caretaker, Alfonse, did his job perfectly. If you are looking for a restful vacation in a quiet town. I highly recommend villa mango or villa gabi!
