About Monica Paiewonsky de Almanzar

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

Why Monica Paiewonsky de Almanzar chose Las Terrenas

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Amazing Place, Amazing Family Time

  • 5 of 5

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.

Villa Mo reveiw

  • 5 of 5

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 house near beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house! Big, clean, and nicely decorated.

Monica was super friendly and helpful. She arranged tours for us and drove us to places including a fish market on a beach. The fish and shrimp we bought were so good!

I would love to go back there someday.

Beautiful, peaceful and overall perfect

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house lies perfectly situated in the safe and enclosed compound of El Portillo. Waking up here and looking out of the window to see a beautiful an pristine Beach was a pleasure everyday of our stay. The house was very clean and decorated very tastefully in a Caribbean-island-style, it mixes perfectly modern amenities with a traditional style. The staff was always helpful and ready to fulfill all our wishes.

The close, but not too close, distance to the town of Las Terrenas allowed us also to enjoy its charm to the fullest.

Our stay was wonderful and very enjoyable, would definitely stay at Villa Mo next time we are in Samana, and would certainly recommend it to all my friends and relatives.
