We've been married for 6 years and have a wonderful baby girl of 4 years of age. We love the water and enjoy our weekends on our boat!

Carl-Philippe Mangones purchased this villa in 2013

This was love at first site! We first bought our boat last year and we were looking for the perfect place to enjoy the boating life, for us, Punta Rucia was the most amazing place to own a boat in the northern coast.

A few months later, we found this great opportunity with our teacher from Law-School that was looking for a potential buyer to sale his 40 year old weekend retreat that he had remodeled back than. We jumped on the occasion and remodeled it with today's modern standards, this was certainly one of the best decisions we have taken in our 6 years of marriage.

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

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.

What a gem. I was searching all over the world for a place where I can go and relax without the normal tourist traps. Well this is the place. The house is absolutely well kept and extremely clean. The pictures don’t do justice in my opinion. Its 200% better. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. I got to know the boat captain, his wife and kids. Such a genuine sweet people it was hard to say goodbye. The owners were great. They met us on our first day when we arrived at the house and they made us feel comfortable and welcomed during our stay. They took care of all our needs without asking for them. I was extremely impressed.
Bedroom was roomy and beds were extremely comfortable. There was a cable tv but who needs TV when you are in this house. Kitchen was fully stocked with all cooking utensils, new w/d, wifi, it had it all… my favorite thing was the grill. Handmade brick grill that can cook an entire pig if you wanted. We must use this grill for every meal. They proved real charcoal. Not what we are used to in the states the real wood charcoals.. can’t ask for anything more.
Boat & fishing:We took a ride on their boat on our second day. You must do this if you are there. You get to experience and see the areas on a boat very few visitors can. On our third day we went mahi-mahi fishing on his boat. Bit choppy ride but well worth it. Owner arranged a local fisherman to come with us and we had a ball. We caught one mahi-mahi that was about 20 lbs within I say 30 min with fishing line only. Such a beautiful fish and tasty as well. Can’t ask for fresher fish… You can actually see them swimming around the boat. Next time I will bring my own fishing equipment. You would need a casting rod/real and top water sliver floater about 6-12”. That’s all you need. If you are prone to boat sickness make sure you bring your own remedy for it. Beach:I was there mid march the water was in the 80 degrees, white sand beach, great breeze all day, every little bugs, what else can you ask for….
Food shopping:Make sure you get groceries before you get to the house. It took us about 4 hours round trip to Puerto Plata to get groceries. Locally there are hand full of resort restaurants and local groceries that have BASIC food.
Conclusion of my trip:I would definitely go back to this property. Next time I’ll fly in closer and make arrangements to have them pick us up. Perhaps longer stay. I would highly recommend this house to everyone.

Review From Louis R. on our listing on AIRBNB

  • Review Submitted: 07-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
Superbe semaine passée dans la maison de Philippe et Nathalie. Ils ont été absolument adorables de venir nous chercher à l'aéroport de Santiago au milieu de la nuit (!) et nous accompagner jusqu'à la maison. (2 heures de route). Le site est magnifique, la maison pleine de charme, le service parfait, le village accueillant.
A noter pour information:
- l'environnement est bruyant la nuit (vagues, générateur électrique du voisin, animaux de fermes, départ des barques au petit matin, ...)
- quelques moustiques
- les possibilités de course sont assez limitées dans le village. Idéalement, prévoir un "plein d'épicerie" sur le chemin de l'aller.

We had a wonderful in this beautiful home. The home is equipped with all you need and a perfect location right on the beach. The property description and other reviews are very accurate. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly, meeting us at the airport, transporting us to the property, providing fresh flowers and fruit. They also provide information on restaurants and activities in Punta Rucia. The staff that take care of the property do a great job and made our stay very comfortable. Highly recommend this vacation home.
We had a great stay and are looking forward to a return trip. Thank you Carl-Philippe and Natalie for sharing your home.

Our family had a wonderful stay at Villa Mango over the Christmas holiday. The house is beautiful and comfortable, and the beachfront location cannot be matched! The master bedroom and balcony off the living room have a beautiful view of the ocean on the second floor, and the open dining area on the first floor also gives you an amazing view of beach and ocean at every meal, and of course the sound of the waves.

We live in Santiago, about two hours away, and have been to many beaches on the north coast of the DR. The beach location is the best that I have seen thus far. The sand is white and the water is clear and calm, which is great for kids. And Punta Rucia is not a touristy area, so there are not many people on the beach, aside from those getting into boats for tours to Cayo Arena. When you step off the front step of the house you are literally on the beach, which meant that our kids could play in the sand even while inside the fenced-in yard.

The house is nicely decorated, all of the appliances/electronics and implements are very modern and well-maintained. The air conditioning in the bedrooms ensures comfortable rest at night as well. The owners were also very friendly and helpful through the entire rental process. They met us personally when we arrived at the house to give us the keys and to show us around the property.

The local attractions were a highlight of the trip. We had a memorable trip to the manatee reserve only ten minutes away and sighted around 10 manatees! We also rented the owner's boat for a private trip to Cayo Arena for great snorkeling and a tour of the nearby mangroves. We had some of the best fresh fish, pescado frito, that we have ever eaten from the restaurant next door. The nearby restaurant at Punta Rucia Lodge was also excellent.

A few pointers to keep in mind. We love the house because it is on a quiet, beautiful beach unspoiled by tourists. However, you need to be prepared to be in an area with less conveniences. If you plan to eat much in the house, you will need to buy groceries in your city of origin (Puerto Plata or Santiago), because you can get some basic groceries at a local colmado but not much. The closest gas station is also about a half-hour drive away. A backup inverter and generator ensured that we had electricity at all times, but the AC and water heater do not run on the inverter and generator. But if you want an unspoiled beach in paradise, this is the place for you!

The most beautiful house on the Beach.

This is a very charming house with an excellent location, right on the beautiful exotic beach. The owners were extremely helpful in every aspect. The met us in Santiago and escorted us right to the house with after shopping in the supermarket. Perfect! The house is right next to a small restaurant with happy and kind people and drinks are cheap! We also enjoyed the excellent service of the local crew that took care of security, cleaning, dishes and even took us on trips on the owner's boat. Don't miss a trip to Paradise Island!
Even though it is an older house, it has all that you need and we especially enjoyed the outdoor dining under roof, and the kids were happy that the house had wifi. We can absolutely recommend this place if you are looking for a vacation outside a resort and right on the beach. Thank you for letting us stay in your home!
