About Diana Case
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, shopping and bus schedules.
Diana Case purchased this Villa in 2002

As an added little gift, we provide a simple breakfast for your first morning. In your home you will find coffee & tea, milk and sugar, banana bread or croissant and a complimentary 5-gallon bottle of water. We also offer an on-site convenience stand to purchase missing last-minute items: an assortment of beverages, beer, rum, wine, snacks. The Maid works in the mornings M-F. Linens, including beach towels are provided. Bath towels are changed every other day and the bed sheets once a week.

A watchman works every evening (except Sunday) and during the day on weekends. Snorkeling equipment and beach chairs are available for use. Wi-Fi is free. Monte Placido is proud to be “GREEN”. We have both solar power and city power. If all else fails, we also have a large back-up generator. You will never be without electricity here! PLEASE TAKE DRIVING DIRECTIONS EVEN IS YOU ARE TAKING A TAXI FROM THE AIRPORT. DO NOT ALWAYS DEPEND ON GPS
What makes this Villa unique
MONTE PLACIDO is on a hill top overlooking the ocean. The residence is gated and safe. We always enjoy the nice cooling Trade Winds from the Atlantic and therefore have very few mosquitos. We are not ON the BEACH; however, we are centrally located to the many beaches in the area. Drive down our hill and you are in a typical Dominican Village. We love it because you get the feel of the local culture and charming, friendly people. An elementary school is in our neighborhood. If you feel inclined, they are so very happy to accept donations of easy reading books in Spanish or other school supplies. Rancho Playa is also in our neighborhood very close by. They offer horseback riding excursions up the mountains and to the beaches. A short walk down our hill to the main road you will find public transportation. A "Guagua" pick-up truck goes back and forth to Las Terrenas about every half hour dusk to dawn. Hop on and ride for about one dollar. We also have a trusted “moto-concho” driver. We can call him to bring you back and forth to town on his motorbike(s). Taxis are also available. In addition, we have a friend with a pick-up truck that you can reserve to take you to town and be your designated driver. At the same spot on the main road you can get a bus to and from Santo Domingo three times a day. It is an easy airport trip. Many of our guest take a short taxi ride form the airport in Santo Domingo to the bus station for TRANSPORTE LAS TERRENAS. The bus costs RD$400 (about $8 US) and will stop at our corner on the main road 3 times a day. We will be happy to meet the bus at Calle Luna and bring you up our hill. Although guests have been able to manage using only public transportation we recommend that you rent your own vehicle so that you are free to explore the Samana Peninsula. The main road system is safe and in good condition and a 4x4 or SUV is not required.
