We spent a week in December 2016 with our kids ages 11 and 5 in Villa Falcon at Monte Placido. To start with - villa Falcon has the best view ever. It was beautiful to sit in the balcony and watch the lush countryside, the blue ocean, circling turkey vultures and feel the cool breeze. It was especially great for...

Rained prior to arrival so trip up hill was challenging but once you drove it one time it was not a problem. Owners could not do enough to make sure your stay went well, gave great advice on places to dine and sights to see. Will definitely be staying there again, This location was close to everything and so scenic.

Management response:

Our guests appreciate our pastoral setting and only just minutes away from town center and close tot the beaches

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...

How to get there
Airport: Samana (AZS) 25 miles - Santo Domingo (SDQ) 100 miles: 40.0 km
If you fly into Santo Domingo airport you can take a 10 minute taxi ride to the bus stop at the entrance to Highway 7. There you can take Transporte Las Terrenas. The 1:40 or 3:00 PM bus will pass through Las Terrenas and take you all the way to the Village of La Barbacoa. You tell the driver to stop at Colmado Nene (on your right). At that corner you will see the sign 'Calle Luna'. From the stop at the Colmado it is a 10 minute walk to Monte Placido. Usually, we pick you up at the Colmado. The bus will cost $350 pesos a person (about $8 dollars).
