In the center of our residence is a beautiful infinity pool with lounge chairs, a barbeque and dining area. There is a massage room and we can arrange for a massage or manicure. We have Shiva's Cave Yoga Studio on site which is open for use and fully equipped with mats and blocks. Guests will also enjoy free membership at the Las Terrenas Sailing Club.
Interaction with Guests
Don and Diana live on site. We are available to help you arrange for a rental car, make reservations, give advise, directions and share our stories and experience.
Monte Placido is on a hill top, about 15 minutes from the town of Las Terrenas and 5 minutes to the nearest beach. The residence is gated and in a pastoral setting. We love it because you get the feel of being in the Dominican Republic and among the charming and friendly people.
There is a bus stop in walking distance, at the bottom of our hill where it intersects the main road. You can get public transportation to the town of Las Terrenas. You can also get a bus,
Transporte Las Terrenas, three times a day that travels to and from Santo Domingo. The bus stop in Santo Domingo is only a 10 minute taxi ride to the airport.
Other Things to Note
We have a caretaker and his wife that live on site. Jeanette is available for hire to do some basic cooking, your laundry, and babysitting. Jean Claude speaks some English and is happy to help with whatever you need.
Your home rental includes basic maid service three times a week. Inquire if you want to upgrade to daily maid service. Pets are allowed in Villa Magnolia and Gardenia because they have a fenced in yard.
