Owner has placed an accurate description of the apartment, it is cozy and elegant. I stayed there with my fiancé for six nights and found the place to be very safe and well attended. Only thing I did not like was that the bed was not very confortable. It is situated in a closely to everything.

“Met my expectations and needs very well.”
Reviewed 13 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Was there for the Caribbean Series (baseball). The apartment was convenient for the Metro to get to cut 3-4 km off of the walk to the stadium. Easy for taxi drivers to find after the game, when I did not want to be walking 5 km through dark streets after midnight in an unfamiliar city.

Also convenient to the Malecon and walkable to La Zona Colonia. The barbecue place next door has great chicken and rice for lunch.

Everything you need for a short or long stay is within easy walking distance.

The apartment itself was clean and comfortable. It came with WiFi access and cable or satellite TV with a wide range of TV channels.

As for service, it was better than I could have expected. As others have described, Petteri was very helpful in describing and pointing out resources in the neighborhood - such as banks, the supermarket, the calmado, the Mash Cafe next door, etc. And he was good at weaving into the conversation advise and cautionary tales about dealing with daily life in the city in a developing country.

In all, I do not know how I could have done better than to rent this apartment for my stay. I would definitely look into to renting this apartment again if I go back to Santo Domingo.

“Great Apartment”

This is the second property that I have rented with this landlord, Mr. Petteri. He is THE BEST and most professional person to deal with and has the highest level of integrity.

He goes out of his way to acquaint the renter with the property, suggest things to do, recommend grocery stores so that you are not left to figure things out yourself.

The property is exactly as pictured and is nicely sized to house at least 2 people. The complex is gated with 24 hour security and free parking is included inside the gate.

It sits a few blocks from several national government ministries. Several ATMs, modern grocery stores, the subway are a few blocks. There is an inexpensive local restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch on the same block--American fast food places are also near. The touristy Colonial Zone is a 10 minute taxi ride. The housekeeper cleans 2x a week.

+++cable, wifi, microwave, modern, close to supermarket, AWESOME landlord!

Nothing negative to report

Use caution in the city at night and take taxis to get around at night.

“Wonderful Apartment, Wonderful Host”

What a great place. It's convenient to the Zona -- about five minutes by cab, or a twenty minute walk -- immaculately kept, and well-stocked with plates, pots, pans, and air conditioning. There's a beautiful small balcony, WiFi, and a cleaning lady included as part of the cost. Can't complain about anything: Petteri was professional, courteous, and helpful, and made our stay in Santo Domingo feel very warm. Can't recommend the place any higher.

“Clean, quite and comfortable”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

I stayed here the first two weeks of May 2015 the apartment is as pictured in the photos and Mr. Petteri is a very pleasant and helpful man to do business with. The apartment is simple but sufficient and located in a convenient location (near a major supermarket, restaurants,banks and the old city tourist attraction) its gated and comes with a parking space. The surrounding area is safe and quite. If you are a person who requires modern luxury this place is not for you. Overall I was satisfied and would consider staying here again. Thank you Mr. Petteri for allowing me to rent your space. P.s. the maid does a great job of keeping the place tidy. She cleans twice a week and her service comes with the rental.

During my recent trip to Santo Domingo I stayed at Mr. Petteri's apartment. First, Mr. Petteri is very honest, friendly and answered all the emails immediately. The deposit was returned as agreed, no questions asked. His apartment is very comfortable, clean and has everything you might need for a short or long stay. The location is excellent, within walking distance to El Malecon, Hotels and Casinos and about 15 minutes walked to the Colonial Zone. There is a nice and inexpensive restaurant across the street and many fast food restaurants, supermarket and many small markets within walking distance. His apartment is in a very safe area and has 24 hours security and also gated. I will stay here during my next visit..

“Good Deal”
Reviewed 1 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

people found this review helpful

I stayed here in November of 2014 for 5 nights. Previously I had stayed in all inclusive resorts but wanted to do something different this time. The apartment is a good size for two people. It was clean and there is gated entry with 24 hr security. It is in the middle of a neighborhood with businesses and other apartments. I did not mind the room being on the fifth floor but you do need to consider this.

I could walk to several restaurants, markets, and the waterfront within 25 minutes. I ran the air conditioner every day for several hours and at the end of my trip my electrical bill was only $10! The bed was a little hard for me and my back.

I used the washing machine and it worked very well.

Yliniitty Petteri was very helpful in trying to help make sure all my needs were met. Jose the cab driver was very helpful as well.

It helps to be able to speak some Spanish in this area as not to many people speak English.

I enjoyed my trip and would stay here again.
