About Monica Paiewonsky de Almanzar

DREAMS DO COME TRUE !!!! It was always our 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 hour 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, and 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- 1-2 minute - to the beach

Kite Surfing in front of Villa

No crowds of people at any time

La Bodega de Portillo is a small supermarket at walking distance from the Villa. It keeps it's name since 1953 when it was founded to supply the needs of all the locals in the area. It's a MUST in the area and very convenient to have a supermarket so close by to buy your groceries. They also have "delivery" service to the Villa.

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.

Me encantó visitar Casa Mo, en Samaná

  • 5 of 5

Precioso lugar, tranquilo, excelentes atenciones, casa limpia y acogedora. Muy cerca de la playa. Habitaciones amplias y cómodas. Todo funcionó a la perfección. Solo tengo una observación: Deben fumigar por unos pocos mayes y mosquitos.

Owner's Response: Muchas gracias por tus comentarios. Siento mucho lo de los mosquitos, hay demasiada vegetacion en el area y alredor de la casa, y a veces hay un poco de ellos.. pero tanto la Junta de Vecinos como nosotros mismos fumigamos constantemente.. Vuelvan pronto.

outstanding, will definetely repeat!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful open concept setting that let us enjoy the outdoors from every room. The villa is simply but superbly decorated to allow relaxation and fun. Kitchen is well stocked with everything one could need. The same can be said of the accomodations... anything we needed was available. We gladly surrendered all food preparation to trusted villa staff and were rewarded with delicious food ad well as free time to enjoy the setting. The grounds crew was helpful and accomodating. The beach is a very short walk away. We had reservations about the status of the property so soon after hurricane Maria but the property was in pristine condition.

I would return to Villa Mo in a heartbeat.

Perfect hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family thoroughly enjoyed a vacation together at Villa Mo. We stayed a week, and every day was better than the last. Three generations found something to suit their tastes, with very helpful advice from Monica. My 3yr old daughter loved the coconuts and coral, my cousins were thrilled with the excursion by boat to nearby caves, and my favorite activity was relaxing by the private pool. The adventurous can kite-surf at the beach nearby, early risers can watch stunning sunrises on the sand, and the whole family can enjoy the crystal-clear water and gentle waves. Monica is so warm and friendly, and she always knows who to call for anything you might need, including a taxi to town, and recommendations for shops and restaurants. We loved every day, and the best part was how welcome and comfortable we all felt at Villa Mo. We cannot wait to come back, and have already started planning for our next vacation there.

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.
