“Great apartment! 100% Reccomended”
Very confortable, clean and with all you can possibly need during your vacation. The apartment is nearby downtown, and has a drugstore, ATM, food markets and public transport within three blocks. The área is quiet, safe and clean. This apartment is perfect for families. Mr. Miles was great, I want to thank you for trusting us. Mr. Angel, see you soon bro. :)
“Great place to stay.”
The apartment was clean and had every amenities we could need. The neighborhood was quiet and the neighbors friendly. We were minutes away from the colonial zone and a park near the Caribbean Sea. But what made our stay great was the help and hospitality shown by Angle and Myles. I would recommend anyone looking for an apartment while in Santo Domingo to book with Angel. Regards
“Nice, safe apartment in Gazcue district of Santo Domingo.”
The apartment is a nice, safe 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment in Santo Domingo. There is one master bedroom with airconditioning, and a second bedroom with a ceiling fan. The plus to this apartment is the owner angel Zabala. He will go out of his way to make sure everything you need is there, and to fix any problems. I had an issue with the stove not working, they had turned off the gas to the building. Once that was fixed, only one of the 6 burners would light without a match. Not a big deal. There is a washing machine in the apartment, but I had to go buy clothes pins to hang my laundry to dry. I left them there so there should be clothes pins there now. My only other issue i was not happy with (and it was probably my fault for not reading the contract closer) is there is an extra charge for electrical usage. Angel will show you the meter reading when you check in, and again when you check out. but there is no form ahead of time which explains the rate you will be charged and what you are allowed. At check out angel wrote down numbers on a napkin and told me I owed him 1300 pesos (about $30-35 dollars us). I was there for 2 weeks. One week by myself and one week with a friend. I am not sure what would have been an acceptable electric bill, because we were not in the apartment that often. It was not a great deal of money, I just do not like surprise charges when you check out. And knowing a rate ahead of time would have been nice. Angel was very nice and helpful though. He does not speak much English, so be ready to work on your Spanish if you are not fluent. Myles is another person who assisted with the rental and he speaks fluent English and Spanish so he will assist you also if you need anything and do not speak Spanish.
Response from the owner Thanks for your good review. We are glad that you had a positive experience and will try to address the issues you mentioned. We now have air conditioning in both bedrooms and hope to see you back again if you return to Santo Domingo.
I'm from the Dominican Republic and just went to visit my family and wanted to stay in the city close to my family, after reading some reviews I decided to book this place and I was not disappointed with it! First I have to begin giving props to flipkey, Its my first time using the website and I found it very easy to use and secure. Now Being Dominican and taking my daughter with me for the first time I was worried about the security of the place but after getting there I realized there was nothing to worry about. The apartment itself is very secure and there is a security guard(who was very nice to us)at the entrance of the apartment. The pictures shown are very recent, so there are no surprises when it comes to the looks of the place, everything is just like the pictures. they have air conditioning in only one of the rooms but they have two fans for the other room and that one can be used in the living room as well. the kitchen has all the appliances needed and angel will even have some of the basics like sugar, water,plates, napkins, paper towels and toilet paper for the bathrooms at no charge. there is hot water if needed, cable tv,etc. I was there for 2 weeks and didn't have a complaint once! Angel was very nice and helpful the whole time, he wanted to make sure we didn't have any problems while staying there and even thought they have a washer available he gave us extra towels, sheets and rugs in case we needed them. All my emails were answered by Miles who was very nice and professional. They both went the extra mile to make sure we had a great time in Dominican. I would definitely book this place again and will recommend to my friends! Thank You Miles and angel!
“Best place to stay in Santo Domingo!!”
I have been to Santo Domingo before and stayed in the Colonial Zone - and can now say that anytime I go back, I will rent from angel! The apartment was beautiful and exactly as stated in the description. The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and secure. We are two american girls that came in town and the area made us feel very comfortable walking around and finding everything we needed. When we arrived we were greeted by Myles and angel - who were more than helpful to us. They provided a map of the neighborhood and marked where things were (super market, restaurants, etc) and even gave us some recommendations of other restaurants to try. On top of that, they drove us to the super market so we could pick up some groceries. I had been researching places to stay online and it always pointed to the Colonial Zone. That area is nice to visit, but I didn't enjoy staying there because it was too busy and being from another country and female - we got too much attention that we did not want. Gazcue is beautiful and I would recommend it to my family and friends and anytime I go to Santo Domingo- this is where I'm staying! A close taxi ride to anywhere you want to go - and the doorman can help you get a taxi or anything you need. Looking forward to our next trip! Thanks angel and Myles!
“We were extremely comfortable from the moment we arrived.”
From the time I began inquiring regarding this apt in Gazcue I received immed responses to all my ques from the owner, Angel Zabala. He was so accommodating. As a courtesy he picked us up at the airport & took us back @ the end of our stay, free of charge.The apt was very clean, comfortable & home-like. The furnishings were lovely & the beds comfortable.It looks "exactly" as the posted pictures. We were extremely comfortable from the moment we arrived. We esp enjoyed the balcony as there was always a wonderful breeze. We never used the air cond as we were comfortable with fans & open windows.If you want a warm shower (elec is expensive there) you just turn on the wall switch for the hot water tank 30-40 min prior to your shower. I was very happy to see there was a 4 cup electric drip coffee pot there (was not listed under the kitchen items on the website)as I am a huge coffee lover. A 5 gal water jug was supplied on the kitchen counter with a pour spout and a pitcher of cold water was in the refrig.for us. He called us several times that week on our international cell phone to make sure we were comfortable & if we needed anything! Mid-week our water jug was getting low & the next day he came & set up a new one for us. What great service! The kitchen was amply supplied for 4. Dish & bar soap, shampoo, paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, kitchen & bath towels were supplied as well as drinking water as mentioned. The apt complex is very lovely & well kept. Beautiful view of the flowers from the balcony. A security person is always present at the gate.The residential neighborhood was quiet & peaceful & we felt perfectly safe. We were within walking distance to Zona Colonial & visited there several times. Our family gives " two thumbs up" to our stay there & to the thoughtful, personal & accomodating host, Angel Zabala. We would definitely stay here again vs any hotel room. Muchas Gracias angel...till we meet again. Sincerely, Dave, Louise, & Amanda S.
Response from the owner Thanks for your kind words, since I wanted to be sure you felt comfortable and safe. For me it was very comfortable being with all of you, just like family. And, thanks for taking me out to dinner! Hope to see you back in the DR again! Angel
“Wonderful place to stay”
This is my third time trying out rentals instead of hotels. Angel's property is, by far, the best and most comfortable stay that I have experienced in Santo Domingo. Every detail of the property was carefuly prepared and tastefuly done. It was a great location in Gazcue. Quiet, but yet close to everything. The unit was equiped with hi-speed wi-fi, cable tv, washer, fully equiped kitchen, and very comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. Many thanks to angel for his hospitality, and I definitetly hope that the property is available on my future trips to Santo Domingo.
“My home away from home!”
My sincerest thanks go out to my host angel for providing that extra personal touch of care to ensure my comfort in his apartment. His service and the apartment itself made me feel right at home from the start. The apartment complex is quiet and well-maintained daily. Neighbors are considerate and friendly. The apartment interior was very comfortable, casual and extremely clean, while also providing everything I needed to enjoy a home cooked meal with friends at the more-than-ample dining table! I would not hesitate to recommend this host and apartment to anyone making a trip to Santo Domingo. I can't wait to return and enjoy this as my little home away from home!
