“Visit in the middle of a storm”
This is a very nice quiet and safe place to stay. Transportation is provided and privacy is guaranteed! It was central to downtown, the tourist sites, and authentic restaurants. The apartment comes with aC and English cable... The hosting family is very hospitable and you can't beat this deal for the price.
“July 2013 experience”
Economically, safe clean environment with optional flat areas for disabled.
“Not bad but not exactly what we expected..”
Donald and the staff were nice and willing to go out of their way to help but he was also definitely trying to make a buck too. I booked a spot for $35 and then he should us a $10 upgrade in which we took. It can be a little bit of a pain with how many keys and locks you have to deal with, personally i liked it but maybe thats because my moms a prison guard. I asked him if it was loud being facing the street and he said no its real quiet. It was really loud. Luckily I can sleep through anything so I wasn't that bothered. Then we prebooked the same place (had no time to shop around), prepaid for it only to come late at night and he had put us in another spot that wasn't as nice and didn't have the separate kitchen area. I had to mention it to him to give us $10 back. He offered us a ride to our bus for $15. You can get taxis much cheaper. Summary, the place is comfy with a comfortable bed, can be loud and not the best neighborhood. Donald is nice but he is trying to make money too. Its a good price but if you search well you can find that price or better right in the Colonial Zone. Wasn't horrible but I won't be back.

“Apartment en Corales del Sur”
Very clean and save apartment complex with a good floorplan. There you`ve got all what you need for a good time in Santo Domingo. The property manager, Donald Sanchez, is very supporting, always available and well organized. A good guy with a good sense of humor. The whole family is very welcoming. If you don`t want to stay too central or directly at the beach this property complex is recommendable to most people.

“comfortable and safe”
nice condo. donald and his family are very helpful. I enjoyed my stay there. very safe(important). they call the Taxi for you,get the purified water..etc. Wifi was a bit problamatic in the begining, but at the end it was all fixed.. good connection. Hot water is also fixed. condo is being upgraded, that is good. only problem is the transporation.. you need a car, rent it from donald, or need a taxi. but you can walk to the seaside.. it is very close.

If you are looking for a simple apartment, in a secure location then this is the place for you. Mr Sanchez, was a life saver! He offers airport pick up and/or drop off service to ease the process of navigating to and from the apartment. The apartment is simple, clean and roomy. We had a full kitchen, so breakfast in bed was a must. There is a store a block away and plenty of places to eat if you have a car only a 5 to 10 minute ride away. Everyone was friendly and full of smiles. The funny thing is, after a few days there and everyone being so welcoming I felt like one of the locals. One of the best features was the on-site car rental option. I choose one of the Suv's, Mr Sanchez gave me a great deal. I loved the service. I appreciated the fact that the building was in a private locate and secure. The only feature that was slightly below a "California Girl" standand I wpould have to say is the comfort. The place is a little rugged, but still a beauty. The terrain is gravel and dirt, which means no fancy shoes when walking to ou vehicle. On the flip side, I got plenty of exercise that week because we stayed on the 3rd floor and there was no elevator. In my opinion, these were two minor exemptions.
“Perfect fo rour needs!”
We were welcomed as if we were long,lost family. Donald and his family were welcoming,warm friendly and very helpful. The apartment was just just perfect for our needs. We slept comfortably. The fan and the open windows brought enough fresh air. We were able to make our breakfast each morning and then head out for the day. The walk to the main street was a few minutes away.There we could easily catch a bus or public carro to get to town. The Colonial Zone was about 15 minutes away. Other attractions such as Los Tres Ojos or the Faro or even closer. If going farther one could just have a cab come straight to the apartment for pick up.The corner store was great for any small food item. I loved the security and safeness of the neighbourhood. It was indeed quiet.Much appreciated after a day in the busy city of Santo Domingo.
Response from the owner Thanks. You were great guest, very nice and clean. It was a pleasure hosting you.
“Great and affordable place!”
Loved the apartment. No need for aC. The fan was enough to keep us cool throughout the night. Apartment is very secure and Juana (staff) is lovely and very helpful. Will use this place again. One negative was that Donald called me the night before I arrived to let me know that the car I had reserved from him would no be available for 4 days and that no onw would be able to pick me up at the airport as planned. Would have appreciated more notice to find alternate transportation especially since I was traveling with 2 young children.
