Ask for meals like pizza to be delivered.

Interaction with guests
Over the past years, Don and Diana are proud to be part of the exclusive 5% “SUPER HOSTS” for our area. We have lived in Las Terrenas since 2002 and are happy to share our helpful experiences and advise. At the same time, we know when to be hands off and we will respect your privacy. It is important to note that we live on-site. Our home has a reception area, so you will feel at ease stopping by to talk with us. In a rare occasion if we are not home, we have a caretaker and his family that also live on site. Jean Claude speaks Spanish and basic English. He is also available to help you. A very comprehensive “Guest Book” is in each home. There you will find many answers to frequently asked questions and information about excursions,

About the neighbourhood
Residence Monte Placido is conveniently located. We are a short five minute drive to the nearest beautiful beach, and a fifteen minute drive to the busy Caribbean town of Las Terrenas. We love our little neighborhood because we are away from the hustle and bustle of town. In a pastoral setting you really get the feel of living in the Dominican Republic among the charming native people. It is relaxing on Monte Placido. Each house is very private with the terraces facing out to the sea and spectacular views. The gardens are beautifully landscaped with a huge variety of tropical plants. Birds love it here and their soft singing is heard throughout the day. Shiva's Yoga Studio is a special spiritual place. It has a life and energy of it's own with plants spontaneously growing out of rock c...
Getting around
In our opinion and to fully enjoy Samana and discover its pristine beaches and tour the sites visitors should have their own mode of transportation be it a car or ATV or scooter or motorbike. For those on a budget and that may not want to rent. From MONTE PLACIDO residence it is easy to use public transport.
