I stayed here the first two weeks of May 2015 the apartment is as pictured in the photos and Mr. Petteri is a very pleasant and helpful man to do business with. The apartment is simple but sufficient and located in a convenient location (near a major supermarket, restaurants,banks and the old city tourist attraction) its gated and comes with a parking space. The surrounding area is safe and quite. If you are a person who requires modern luxury this place is not for you. Overall I was satisfied and would consider staying here again. Thank you Mr. Petteri for allowing me to rent your space. P.s. the maid does a great job of keeping the place tidy. She cleans twice a week and her service comes with the rental.

During my recent trip to Santo Domingo I stayed at Mr. Petteri's apartment. First, Mr. Petteri is very honest, friendly and answered all the emails immediately. The deposit was returned as agreed, no questions asked. His apartment is very comfortable, clean and has everything you might need for a short or long stay. The location is excellent, within walking distance to El Malecon, Hotels and Casinos and about 15 minutes walked to the Colonial Zone. There is a nice and inexpensive restaurant across the street and many fast food restaurants, supermarket and many small markets within walking distance. His apartment is in a very safe area and has 24 hours security and also gated. I will stay here during my next visit..

“Good Deal”

I stayed here in November of 2014 for 5 nights. Previously I had stayed in all inclusive resorts but wanted to do something different this time. The apartment is a good size for two people. It was clean and there is gated entry with 24 hr security. It is in the middle of a neighborhood with businesses and other apartments. I did not mind the room being on the fifth floor but you do need to consider this.

I could walk to several restaurants, markets, and the waterfront within 25 minutes. I ran the air conditioner every day for several hours and at the end of my trip my electrical bill was only $10! The bed was a little hard for me and my back.

I used the washing machine and it worked very well.

Yliniitty Petteri was very helpful in trying to help make sure all my needs were met. Jose the cab driver was very helpful as well.

It helps to be able to speak some Spanish in this area as not to many people speak English.

I enjoyed my trip and would stay here again.

I stayed in the apartment for 6 days. Everything was as expected, very clean. Petteri was very nice and professional. The apartment was cleaned while I was gone and later in the week Petteri came back to bring clean towels. This was much appreciated. I will definately be renting again.

“Absolutely Fantastic and relaxing”

This property was everything I desired and more.
The apartment itself wa s very clean, comfortable and a great size for a single person! The pictures are up to date and true tee presentation of the apartment.

There are 2 units in the building owned by the proprietor Petteri . The apartments are on the 4 and fifth floors respectively. Be ware this is a walk up and there are split stair cases plus the lobby floor so it really feels like much more than just 4 or 5 flights. All the appliances and furnishings in the apartment are clean and work well. Petteri it's time for a new iron...lol
There was much too much noise each morning because of the construction going on, all sides of the building. The cable, Internet and inverter were superb and worked well the entire 6 weeks. All appliances worked well and consistently. The mini balcony was great!

Petteri, the security mans maid were all fantastic and extremely helpful. The 2 security persons always offered to take my bags and packages up to my apartment or went to the store if I requested. The maid came every Tuesday and Friday and did a marvelous job of cleaning and maintaining the apartment. The neighbors accepted me and were very friendly as if I were a permanent resident. Right around each of the corners are restaurants, bodegas and colmadas able to fill all your needs.

Petteri the owner is the only second to the apartment itself as the crown jewel of this rental. He was available by phone or email if needed and was only a few minutes away if he needed to come in person. He knows the area and the country well and was able to provide valuable insight and suggestions as needed. He is not overbearing, nosy or a bothersome renter but is very respectful, available and hands on as you may need or not.

This rental is great for singles who want to be close yet far away enough from the Colonial zone to really relax and enjoy yourself. Only a few blocks from Playa Guibia for morning exercise on the free Public City Beach. Only a 25 peso ride from the zone or a 15 minute walk if you like.

I highly recommend this rental because of the quality of the rector and the rental itself! Fantastic location and very reasonable cost for what you get!

The place was better than I expected. It was very clean and comfortable, equipped with modern appliances and plenty of hot water. It also had backup electric power, Great location, close to everything, grocery stores, banks, and many restaurants. Petteri, the property owner, is a down to earth individual, he was always available to help. I trully enjoyed my stay at Catalonia 3/Santo Domingo Apts.
