Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My BF and I stayed here for 9 days and it was perfect! The pictures of the apartment are accurate and none of the space is shared. It is a very comfortable and clean home with lots of room and an ideal location. You can walk to little grocery stores, tons of shops, cafes, restaurants, and Zona Colonial historic sites.

Ernesto, the owner speaks English and Spanish. He was very accommodating. We will be back!!

Dirty place, filled with mosquitoes

  • 1 of 5

This is what I wrote to the owner at the end of the first day: "It was extremely dirty and simply unacceptable as a place to stay. There were several hairs both long and short throughout the apartment (one of which I immediately pointed out to Ruskin [the onsite manager] during our walk through and another that we found on the bed). Additionally, the bath tub in the bedroom plus the sink in the kitchen and the refrigerator were all filthy.

There were two young men helping Ruskin fix something that was apparently wrong with the tv upon our arrival and the three of them were continuously walking in and out of the apartment for well over an hour after our arrival attempting to fix or replace this tv - which we had already stated we would not be using anyway so there was no rush from us."

These things combined made us extremely uncomfortable and this place was not even close to being basically clean. I communicated the same to the owner who promptly told me he will not be issuing a refund and I should have told him earlier. We were in Santo Domingo for less than 48 hour and I was not willing to waste my trip following his people around looking for a new place or waiting for someone to come in and clean the place. The owner also stated the place was cleaned the day before we arrived....which is either false or they need to hire a new cleaning person. The place was disgusting. Do not waste your time or money, you will be sorely disappointed.

Owner's Response: I am really sorry your stay with us wasn't enjoyable. We've been renting apartments in Santo Domingo for over 8 years and your review is the first unfavorable review we've received. We take pride in our apartments, making sure renters needs are always met in terms of comfort and safety always. And just as we take pride in our apartments, we take pride in our staff. Many of them have literally been with us since the very beginning. We trust them and know they understand how important renters are to us. We have a system for checking all apartments are ready for clients. The apartment was cleaned the day before your arrival and immediately before your arrival I had the apartment double checked, which is when I learned there was a problem with the television. The gentlemen entering the apartment were acting from my instructions. That was a miscommunication. I didn't realize you had told them you didn't want the television. I told them to fix it or replace it, however I wasn't clear that it should perhaps be done once you were settled or perhaps out for dinner. Yes, we do have a no refund policy, but as I mentioned during emailing, had you giving us the opportunity to at least rectify the situation by either upgrading you to one of our larger apartments, or possibly treating you to dinner or spa treatment while we had the apartment re-cleaned to your specifications, we would have at least felt like a fair effort was made to make the best of the situation. I really wish we had had the opportunity to help make your stay enjoyable.

Excellent apartment with excellent service

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the apartment was great. The place is very spacious and has everything you would need while on vacation. The maid service is not something I needed, but could be a good thing for someone who would. The only room with a/c is the bedroom, but the design of the house is not possible to make the entire place airconditioned and it would take away from the charm of the place if it were to be completely enclosed. The location is fantastic, walking distance to anything in the Zona Colonial. I would totally recommend the property to any visitor coming to Santo Domingo. Thanks for the opportunity to make your home my home during my visit. Best regards!

Great American/Latin Style Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this property during August, 2010, for 5 days and I couldn't have asked for more from the owner and property management team. The apartment was wonderful and served all the needs for me including being in the heart of the city and the people. Also, they provided a driver who knows the city and surrounding areas that help me navigate my visit.

The security of the location was fine and I found myself freely entering and exiting the apartment into the late evening hours without any concerns.

If I schedule sometime to return to Santo Domingo again in the near future and if the property is still available for rent, there is no other place I would want to stay.

Kansas to Santo Domingo

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay for a single bachelor or couple. Excellent if you enjoy getting to know the locals. Walking distance to the sea, although I can’t say I saw much of it given all the beautiful people in the area. The apartment was definitely spacious and comfortable, very clean, and I loved sitting out at night in the Atrium.

This was perfect for my first time in Santo Domingo. I definitely feel I received more then what I paid for. The services from the Montgomery group couldn’t have been better. They were a life saver when I over slept and missed my return flight to the States. There driver Juan Guzman is a very safe and knowledgeable driver. I will stay there again in the future.

“Thanks” -Wichita, Kansas-
