As an AIRBNB “Super Host” that live on site, we invite you to our cozy garden apartment named Gardenia. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 lofts and a sofa sleeper. The terrace has mountain view and a fenced garden with soothing pond fountain. Gardenia is part of MONTE PLACIDO, a hilltop gated residence with beautiful gardens and spectacular ocean & mountain views. The residence of six Villas has an infinity pool. Shiva’s Cave Yoga studio is on site. We are minutes away by car to beaches.

The space

Gardenia is our best value for two adult couples or large families with children. The main bedroom has a comfortable Queen bed. The kitchen is open to the living room which has a sofa sleeper. Upstairs there are two loft areas recommended only for children due to low head space. Each loft area holds a Double bed. From the outdoor terrace you enter a second bedroom with a Queen bed and its own private bathroom. At maximum capacity Gardenia can sleep six adults, or four adults and four children under 12 years. The garden terrace has a seating area and dining table that can accommodate no more than six adults. The price shown is for two guests. Please enter the number of guests in the required space. Only children under two years are free. If you are more than four guests, please contact us for discount pricing. Gardenia is pet friendly. There is a cleaning charge for your pet of $30 dollars. For pets we also ask for a security deposit.

Guest access

Guests on Monte Placido have access to the beautiful infinity pool. The pool is shared but yet very private as most guests are at the beach during the day. The pool deck has a barbeque and two separate dining and lounging areas. Inside the pool you will find a shallow area for children and a deep place for swimming. Guests love to hang on the side where the water cascades, look out over the ocean and enjoy a cool drink after a day of beach exploring. Guests on Monte Placido also have free access to Shiva’s Cave Yoga Studio which is on site. It is a marvelous place for your personal workout or we can arrange for a private yoga lesson. Under the pool cabana is our massage room. You can book a one hour massage for US $35 dollars. Guests will also enjoy free membership at the Las Terrenas Sailing Cub.

Monte Placido it's a fantastic place to choose for your vacations! We've been there for a week in February and it's been amazing!! We rented (with Don's help) a scooter to visit the nearest town (Las Terrenas) and local attractions (fabulous beaches, restaurants etc). Diana and Don are very, very nice and helpful hosts! We very much recommend Monte Placido to anyone and we'll be going back ourselves as soon as we can!!! Angelo and Teresa
Diana And Don User ProfileDiana And Don is a superhost.
Response from Diana And Don:
Angelo and Teresa opted for a Scooter as well as some of our other guests. This is an economic and fun way to get around (from $20 to $25 a day). For others that more at ease with 4 wheels, ATVs are great to explore our beaches. Cars and even beach buggies are also available to discover Samana Peninsula. We organize this for our guests and we also have the rental agency pick you up with a driver at the airport at a fraction of the cost of any taxi. This s a great option for those coming in late and want to be care free. Please inquire.

Don is very good at giving directions. The place and the view are so lovely. The town is full of tourists. I definitely recommend Diana and Don's place.

We had a wonderful trip to Las Terrenas in large part due to the great hospitality of Don and Diana and the stunning views at Monte Placido. The drive to many restaurants and beaches was short and easy. The local staff was particularly attentive and friendly- be sure to sign up for a massage from Julia; she does an amazing job.

Response from Diana And Don:
Cathy is right, we are away form hustle bustle of town in our mountain top ocean view pastoral setting and only a very short drive to the many bars, restaurants and beache(s) of Las Terrenas. Yes, Julia our masseuse has amazing strong hands. We charge $35 for a full 1 hour massage in our little spa. Manicure/ pedicure also available. Both our staff and our selves live on site to make sure our guests really enjoy their stays and relax. Thank you Cathy for sharing your experience for future guests.

Wow! What a majestic residence to stay. D&D have put a great amount of craft and detail into this property over the last 14 years. My 2 night stay here felt special. Hill Top rental off the beaten path of traditional accommodations. Not to often can you stay somewhere and gain energy back from the universe just by looking up at the stars at night... This was just what the Dr ordered :) If it wasn't the infinity pool, the Cave or the Terrace with Magnificent views it was Don checking in on the stay and offering insight on the surrounding areas for adventures. Thanks D&D great conversation on the way out .. See you next time.. Highly Recommended

What a beautiful property! Gorgeous views, comfortable villa with everything we needed, and an incredible infinity pool and yoga area. Don and Diana took great care of us, giving recommendations of things to do in town, helping us bring our things up the driveway when we arrived, and checking in frequently. They were always available for any question we had. Couldn't have asked for a more peaceful getaway weekend, and can't wait to go back!

Maria and her 3 friends are teachers/nurses and/or work for an NGO here in the DR. Let us thank them for their efforts and hard work to improve the life of many poor and well deserving Dominicans that have so kindly welcome us to their country.

Response from Diana And Don:
Thank you Eamanuel, Yes we are strategically located just East of Las Terrenas and on the way to Playas : - Moron - Valle - Rincon - El Valle These are the most pristine and undeveloped beaches of Samana Peninsula. Also and only just a 10 minute drive to the Water Falls of El Limon. For the "Eco Tourists" go hiking on the mountains on the rails just behind us.

Don and Diana moved to the Dominican Republic 12 years ago. Don grew up in Paris, France and Diana on Long Island, New York. We married in 1999 and moved to the Dominican Republic in 2002. We built Monte Placido and the six houses as a family residence. In 2011 we began our rental home business. Diana enjoys yoga. She organizes yoga retreats in what we call SHIVAS's CAVE. When Don is not gardening he goes sailing.
