Words cannot express our utter enjoyment of Manny's wonderful home in Santo Domingo Este and how grateful we are to his staff (Nin (housekeeper), Franklin (groundskeeper), Rodolfo (driver) and the top-notch security team led by Rafael) for all their assistance in making us comfortable. Manny saw to it that whatever was needed was handled and/or arranged, and he was always reachable. We worked with the staff to coordinate our excursion arrivals and departures, making our coming and going from the house as smooth as glass. As in other reviews, the online photos really do not do the fabulous home justice - you must see it in person. The pool and jacuzzi (lighted at night) were very nice - never too cold or too hot. The bedding and individual bathrooms are comfortable and well-appointed. The kitchen was at our disposal (whenever Nin wasn't preparing one of her wonderful meals!), and Manny can and will arrange for anything you may need. The living and dining rooms are spacious and perfect for eating or simply relaxing and watching either TV or movies. Access to high-speed internet is provided. The sound system allows you to simply plug in a portable device and the music is sent through the outside speakers - imagine relaxing in the pool or jacuzzi and listening to your favorite tunes... There's an available grill and wet bar outside. Highly recommend this residence if you are looking for a quiet, private place to be in Santo Domingo. Manny can arrange access to a driver and vehicle should you want to go out and about, and by all means, allow Nin cook for you - her La Bandera is simply delicious! Bring your Spanish dictionary and enjoy!
