About Carl-Philippe Mangones

We've been married for 9 years and have a wonderful baby girl of 8 years of age. We love the water and enjoy our weekends on our boat!

Carl-Philippe Mangones purchased this villa in 2014

Why Carl-Philippe Mangones chose Dominican Republic North Coast

This was love at first site! We first bought our boat in 2012 and in 2013 we bought our first house on the beach (Villa Mango).

A year later, we found this great opportunity to buy our second house. We jumped on the occasion and remodeled it by today's standards, this was certainly the second best real estate decision we have taken in our 9 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.

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

Have traveled all over Central America and a lot of the Caribbean, and this has to be my favourite spot. The house is great, the local people are wonderful, and the town is great. As the other reviews state, truly relaxing place and a great way to experience the Dominican Republic.

Great house. Excellent people

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mango was the perfect place for our vacation. The house is nicely laid out and 70 ft from the beach! The town of punta rucia is small and very friendly. We enjoyed walks along the beach, strolling down the unpaved main street and meeting the people of the town. Great communication from the owners and the caretaker, Alfonse, did his job perfectly. If you are looking for a restful vacation in a quiet town. I highly recommend villa mango or villa gabi!

We had a fantastic time! The location, house, and amenities suited us to a T. The property was more than adequate and extremely comfortable. Customer service exceeded our expectations and I can't imagine being any better taken care of. I highly recommend this property and would love to return in the future. We went to Manatee Bay, Playa Ensanada, Paradise Island, 27 Waterfalls, and Playa Encuentro (for surfing). We also enjoyed sunsets and walking the beach at Punta Rucia. We splurged and went to the Punta Rucia Lodge for our last night's dinner. Everything was spectacular!

Great time in Punta Rucia!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little gem away from the hustle and bustle of all inclusive resorts. Located off the beaten path (literally), this is the perfect place to unwind with the sun, sand and ocean. The house is exactly as shown in the pictures...which is definitely not always the case but in this case it was exactly as described. We opted to have Philippe and Natalie pick us up from the airport and they were fantastic. They provided us with the 'lay of the land' while also stopping for us to shop at a supermarket. It was great to be able to get a lot of information from them about the house and the town. There are 3 or 4 restaurant choices in the area and all of them were good. But nothing compared to having the 'maid' cook for us one night. It was definitely the most delicious meal we had the entire trip and we would definitely recommend it! Another must is to rent their boat (with captain)! We went out in the middle of the ocean where the water is crystal clear and only 4 ft deep and swam (walked) around. Then we continued on to a little private island (just 3-4 huts) and relaxed with a few Presidentes that we brought in the cooler (cooler on the boat / ice and beer we brought). It was amazing. All in all we had a great time relaxing by the pool, at the beach (which is literally across the street) and unwinding over a much needed week in this little paradise and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about it.
