This is a family house. Owner Federico lives upstairs of this duplex style house. He uses the same entrance to the house as the guests, but the only part of the house he shares with the guests is the kitchen, more specifically the fridge and the microwave to reheat food, as he does not cook at all.
No parties or events.
House is for the guests exclusively.
The house accommodates 4 people, but an additional child can easily sleep in the master bedroom's queen bed with parents.
Small children are not allowed in the Jacuzzi nor on the Rooftop Terrace WITHOUT parent supervision.
Small children should also be under supervision in the dining room because of a decorative glass table. Glass is not permanently attached to the columns.
Please refrain from loud noises and be considerate towards the neighbors.
PS : Federico, the owner, works M - F from 6 AM to 7 PM and even some Saturdays.

I'm a native of the Zona Colonial, currently living in the concrete jungle called the Big Apple. This is our family house. We always look forward to visiting DR as it is our refuge from the high stress of living in NY. Beautiful vibrant colors of the house soothe and enliven our senses. We put so much attention to the details in the house to make us feel good and relaxed in every corner of it. Gorgeous azure color of the Caribbean Sea lets us forget about grayness of the city we live in. My brother Federico will be hosting you, he lives upstairs and will be assisting you while staying at the house. He only speaks Spanish, but Marnie speaks okay English and helps him run the house since he usually leaves for work at 6 AM and returns at 7 PM on weekdays and some Saturdays as well. He is quiet and extremely private, you would not even know he is there. Please cherish our beautiful house as you would yours, we infused much love and thought into its complete renovation. We wish you a wonderful time in Santo Domingo and hope our vibrant home will help you make unforgettable memories of Zona Colonial. Enjoy!
Rafael purchased this Apartment in 1970
Why Rafael chose Ciudad Colonial
This house is a project of love. We designed it for maximum comfort, ease and soothing of the senses. The vibrant colors inspire positive thoughts and bright mood. We put attention to details and renovated everything from the kitchen to jacuzzi and air-conditioned bedrooms. Artwork on the walls is original, and we also preserved my late Mom's mirrors and chandeliers. We hope you'll enjoy and cherish it as much as we do.
