About Carl-Philippe Mangones

We've been married for 7 years and have a wonderful baby girl of 5 years of age. We love the water and enjoy our weekends on our boat!

Carl-Philippe Mangones purchased this villa in 2013

Why Carl-Philippe Mangones chose Puerto Plata

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 7 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Private escape to Paradise!

  • 5 out of 5
Carl-Philippe and Natalie were so greatly accommodating and helpful right from the start of our vacation. The house was beautiful and right on the beach. We were struck by how clear the water was in Punta Rusia and the beauty of the white sand beach. The house has pretty much anything you need for a getaway, snorkeling gear, sand toys, boogey boards and the like. The hammocks and tree swing were great for the kids too:) We were especially impressed with the staff and how friendly and helpful everyone was - they really made us feel like part of the community (Alfonso,Alphie,Milagros,Keivi,Rafelina, and our extra security, Pierre) The experience has been so amazing the entire family joked about not ever having to leave!

Thank you again and know that if in the future we choose to come back to Punta Rusia we will certainly stay here!

Paradise has been found !!!

  • 5 out of 5
Paradise has been found !!! On a scale of 1-10, we undoubtedly give Villa Mango a 15 !!! To say that our time at Villa Mango was better than we ever imagined, is an understatement…….and we were lucky enough to get married in this paradise. We have traveled extensively and Villa Mango falls into the rare category of “We Must Return”…..there are only two other locations in the world that hold this distinction (we typically visit a location once and opt for a new destination on our next trip). We were already talking about a return visit as we boarded our flight home.

Please note, Punta Rucia is a very small town that truly offers an authentic experience (it is not a resort town). In our book, this is a plus. We gladly did without the shopping malls, Starbucks, crowds, night clubs, grocery stores, etc. For this reason, have the owners pick you up at the airport (fly into Puerto Plata) and take you to the grocery store before traveling to Punta Rucia. Once you find yourself at Villa Mango, you’ll realize simple living takes all of your worries away.

The owners, Carl-Philippe & Natalie, are people of integrity, respect and kind hearted. The photos and info on Villa Mango’s profile is an accurate depiction of the accommodations/area. They were very helpful and accommodating from the moment we inquired about staying at Villa Mango.

Here’s a summary as to why Villa Mango is PARADISE !!!

- Villa Mango is literally right on the beach (it’s a very quiet and clean beach with warm, crystal clear blue waters). You get to enjoy this ocean view as you look out nearly every window in the house, as you dine in the covered eating area, as you swing in one of the two hammocks. Eat at the neighboring cafe.
- Punta Rucia has not been spoiled by tourists, so you’ll experience an authentic part of the Dominican Republic.
- Villa Mango offers the best in beach living (the house & grounds are extremely clean, hot water, AC for a charge, well equipped kitchen, BBQ, comfortable beds, etc).
- There are water activities galore and priced economically (stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, boogie boards, snorkeling, SCUBA). You can also rent bikes. For free, you can use Villa Mango’s boogie board and snorkeling gear. We rented SUP boards, kayaks and a bike from nearby Villa Rosa .
- The staff and owners will take exceptional care of you. However, they are very respectful of your privacy.
- The people of Punta Rucia are extremely welcoming and kind.

Paradise!

  • 5 out of 5
My daughter and I had a really awesome time at Mango Villa!! We stayed for the 1st week of April and the owner of the property, Carl-Philippe was so friendly and attentive. Before we ever arrived, Carl answered all of our many questions by email, always responding within a day at most. He was incredibly thorough! We foolishly decided to fly into the Santa Domingo airport and drive across the country because it was cheaper. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT DO THAT! Driving in the DR, especially Santa Domingo, is insane. We do not recommend driving at all. Carl so graciously offered airport pick-up service had we flown into one of the closer airports, but we decline which was a big mistake. Although we made this mistake, Carl was quick to offer his assistance and send a driver to let us follow him back. This was a life saver! When we arrived at the house, several staff people were awaiting, including Alfonso who lives in a house on the property and tends to any issues that arise. The staff were amazing, I cannot emphasize this enough! There was also a staff person named Kleiby who was a wonderful person, driver, tour guide, and boat driver. Getting to know the staff was a highlight of the trip. The house itself is exactly as described. It is a peaceful, beautiful, private home directly on the beach. We would spend our mornings and evenings sitting out on the upstairs deck enjoying the serene view from above. The house itself was well maintained thanks to Rafaelina, the housekeeper. The biggest highlight of our trip was the fact that we had access to Carl's boat and Kleiby our own boat captain to take us to Cayo Paradisio. There really are no words to describe the beauty of this small island 20 mins from our backyard. Be sure to bring bread (or anything) to feed the fish as hundreds of beautiful fish will eat out of your hands. Kleiby even took me on a snorkeling tour all the way around the reef which surrounds the island.

If you are looking for shopping, and tourism nearby, this isn't your spot. The nearest grocery store and tourist like town is about an hour and a half away. Plan to grocery shop on the way from the airport as restaurants in town are very limited. There is a big BBQ, which makes for a delicious home cooked dinner.

If you are looking to detach from reality in a remote exotic location, this is the place for you.

Thank you to Carl and Natalie, and to his awesome staff, Kleiby, Rafaelina, Alfonso, and Josue for an great vacation!

Great visit, wonderful place!

  • 5 out of 5
All previous reviews are accurate. The owners bend over backwards to ensure your visit is all it should be. Staff where great, accommodations were as advertized and the restaurant next door was a godsend. They deliver and ran a tab for us. Paradise Island was a must visit but get there early as the crowds can be overwhelming but worth the visit. The Playa Ruis is a must visit, the food and grounds are breathtaking. We ate out most nights and have found good local eateries. Weather was perfect, not humid but warm and the water clear. Thank you Phillipe.

one of kind....

  • 5 out of 5
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.

Relaxation Away From It All

  • 4 out of 5
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.
