Complete paradise
Breathtaking doesn't even begin to describe this property. My entire party was blown away when we arrived. The pictures on this site do not even do this place justice. The view is absolutely amazing. We were even greeted our first morning by a huge full rainbow over the ocean. The entire house is spacious, luxurious, well designed and decorated. We were simply in love and wondering why we didn't plan our entire trip staying in this house. The house is very close to Playa Cozon which is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. It is also close enough to Las Terrenas to take advantage of the ammenities there but far enough away to feel like you are in secluded paradise. The caretakers of the property were so helpful and sweet. It was nice to know that they were there. I really can't find enough wonderful things to say about this property! We might have to come back to the DR just to stay here again! My only tip would be that this property would not be good for anyone with smaller children. The living room literally opens onto the pool. Nothing divinding the two. I have two small children that were not with us and several times commented how scared I would have been if they had. But hey this is the kind of place you come for relaxation without children!

Spectacular view and relaxation.
This house is 100 times better than staying at any hotel, it has all you need even your own personal Chef! It is spacious, inviting and the pool has a way of keeping you in day and night. There are many places to visit, and all within minutes by car and one hour at the most when going to Samana, Limon Waterfall is a must.

Heaven
The minute I arrived with my boyfriend at Jan and Scott's villa, I fell in love with the Dominican Republic all over again. We had not come to Las Terrenas since the new airport and highways opened: it is so easy now to travel from New York. This was the perfect romantic getaway: tranquility, peace and beauty. The view is absolutely stunning, the house charming with a perfect spot for every moment of the day, Bienvenida and Rafael are so kind and helpful and the location ideal if you want to be close to town -a short 10mn drive-, or the beach -a 15mn-walk-, while at the same time being isolated, as if in your own little heaven. Next time we come, I am not looking for any other place than his paradise villa!

great vacation spot
The Mashek home is beautiful, comfortable and well-taken care of. We are accustomed to self catering, but here, if you prefer, most everything will be taken care of. I believe most people would be perfectly content lounging here by the pool- for days. However, one of the best beaches in the world is a 15 minute walk away. At night, we would lay out under the stars and find shapes in the clouds. As a family of three, we only required one bedroom, but the layout of the home affords plenty of privacy between the sleeping areas, and capitalizes on the outdoor living spaces. There are three separate bedrooms that can be utilized, so a couple, or two or three, or two families with kids can all enjoy this home Bien and Rafael are very hospitable and kind. Bien will cook a great meal for you. The owner, Scott was on the property while we were there, and we enjoyed his friendship and guidance about all things local. Some practical tips about here and D.R. in general: This home is within 20 minutes beautiful drive from aZS airport should you arrive there. It's best to know some spanish. Having a quad or a scooter, is helpful. We spent half a week without our own, which was fine, but with a quad, we enjoyed all the more. Las Terrenas is a lively town not too far away when you want to enjoy it , but it is also just far enough away. At the nearest beach are two mostly-empty resorts with resort - type amenities if you want to enjoy them. But adjacent is practically empty beautiful beaches for your sole enjoyment if that's more your thing. And, of course, the house is so comfortable, the view spectacular, and the pool so inviting that you won't even have to leave.

A little piece of heaven
Went there for a weekend, but wish I could have stayed longer. The house is gorgeous and the view is spectacular. A well thought design and distribution of the house, with an open living room with the pool just in front and out, to have a midnight swim watching the stars. From every room you have a beautiful view of the Coson coast line and beach. Well located, close to all the attractions in Terrenas. A must visit place I will surely repeat.

Unique vacation experience
My family and I (including 3 kids age 8-14) rented the house for one week during spring break in 2012 and one of the best vacations ever. The house is very unique with its outdoor living space and absolutely beautiful. The view of the atlantic and some small islands out the back over the pool is spectacular and the amenities are comfortable and nice. The infinity pool is fantastic. The kids loved swimming up to the edge of the cliff, and had some great jumping pictures with the palms and ocean in the background. Bien and Moreno are as helpful and nice as can be. Bien is a very good cook - definitely ask her to cook some local meals for you. Her cooking is better than the restaurants! Las Terrenas, and the Samana Peninsula, are a great place for a vacation. The beaches at Playa Colon and nearby Playa Bonita are top notch with very low crowds, and the beaches in Las Terrenas are excellent if you want more action, like restaurants on the beach. We hardly saw any tourists. The new highway from Santo Domingo makes the area accessible by car in about two hours. You'll need a rental car to see the area. The house would not be good if you have small kids (the bedrooms are separated by stairs and the pool area) or do not appreciate a few lizards and frogs in the outdoor living area (we liked it). If those aren't issues for you, you'll never forget this vacation!

our paradise hideaway in Las Terrenas, DR!
we have been to this amazing house a couple of times and are planning our 3rd stay for our summer vacation. we are so excited! this home is stunning. it is so comfortable to be in and such a joy to hang out and laze around in the sun or in the shade overlooking the gorgeous view. there are many days where we have not wanted to leave the house, it's heaven to be there... Scott and Jan are super friendly and if you ever have a chance to share a beer, do so. they are great company and have lots of great insights to the area for you to visit. Bien is a darling and will cook you up a delicious meal if you ask her. Moreno and his family who live on the grounds are super lovely...Israel their son, is great company for any young kids who visit!

You Gotta See it to Believe it!
We have been going to Villa Mashek for the past 5 years and we love this house! Our daughters really look forward to going back every time. The view overlooking the water from the living room is amazing. It is like being in paradise. The staff that work there is very helpful and they go out of their way to make you feel at home. There is a cool four wheeler they have for a small fee for you to ride around town. I highly recommend this place.
