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

Great for Families with children

Inside Gated Residential Area

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.

Mi lugar preferido!

  • 5 of 5

Para mi familia, Villa Mo forma parte ya de nuestras vidas. Allí nos sentimos recibidos como parte de su familia cada vez que visitamos. Las atenciones de sus propietarios, asi como del servicio es excelente, siempre con una sonrisa en sus rostros. Una de las mejores playas justo en el frente de la casa, para disfrutar en familia. Cada vez que llega la hora de irnos, ya estamos pensando cuando será la próxima oportunidad para volver.

ALL THE WONDERFUL REVIEWS ARE TRUE!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week-long stay at Villa Mo and I have to say this is the best family vacation we’ve had to date. My husband and I (along with our 5 teenagers) couldn’t believe how lucky we are to have found this home. Read all the wonderful reviews because they are all true – the house, location, safety/security, privacy, beach, proximity to town, host (Monica) and cook/housekeeper (Yani), etc. The home is a 200-step/1-minute walk to the almost private beach. The beach cove is located between the all-inclusive Bahia Principe Resort El Portillo to the right, and Coson beach to the left. Entrance to the El Limon Waterfalls is just a 15-minute drive. This is the first vacation I’ve had wherein I could honestly say I’m 100% fully rested!

We can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Villa Mo from Boston with our 5 children (ages 11, 10, 8, 2 and 3 months) and our parents who met us there from Florida. We cannot say enough good things about our stay there. Monica was welcoming and on top of all of our requests (even coordinating with us in advance to have groceries ready for our arrival) and our cook (Yani) and all of her helpers were just outstanding. Their food is delicious! The house is gorgeous (less than a minute from the beautiful, quiet and almost private beach.) We enjoyed the quick tour of the town (and getting fresh fish from the fish market) where Monica took us on the first day. We are already looking forward to coming back to this beautiful piece of paradise!

Gorgeous house with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

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!
