About Diana Case

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.

Come and join us, relax and enjoy!

Diana Case purchased this studio in 2002

Why Diana Case chose Dominican Republic

We chose this property for the spectacular ocean view to the north, and the virgin mountain view to the south. We preferred it to beach front because the breeze keeps us cool and there are hardly any mosquitoes. It is a sort ride to the beach and only fifteen minutes to the town of Las Terrenas. We like living in the quiet countryside better than hot, noisy town. We also like being among the friendly Dominican people.

What makes this studio unique

The most unique benefit is that the owners live on site and are available to help you. We enjoy sharing our experience and advise on what to do and how to get there. Shiva's Cave Yoga Studio is also an outstanding asset which was recently featured in "In Samana Magazine".
