“This penthouse rocks!”
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Boston
Let me first by saying if you are wondering whether the pictures actually look like the place you would rent, the answer is no because the place is even better in person! When John says he has the Penthouse, he has the Penthouse! We stayed in two of our three nights there because the place was so awesome. We brought the party to us and it was a blast. From the Jacuzzi and music system to the bar set up or delivery of food and beverages to our front door - this apartment blew away any hotel and for the same price or even cheaper! We had three guys and that came out to about $85 dollars each. Our group was on the fence about whether to do the "Night Out On the Town” with John and I am glad we did. All the below reviews about him being well connected in Santo Domingo are true. We were whisked in to each club with hugs and handshakes, no cover charges and VIP treatment. If the club was dead that night, we were off to the next place. If we had done cabs, we would have spent more than hiring John. Do it your first night - it will be well worth it and you will have a lay of the land. I have rented apartments from Medellin. Columbia to Las Vegas and could easily give this apartment an overall 9 out of 10 score. The only drawback is the apartment is on the fourth floor and there is no elevator, but then again we ended up walking off all the Presidente beer we were drinking. We will return to Santo Domingo and won't stay anywhere else!

service was very attentive and helpful. the suite was very comfortable, clean and spacious plenty of room! close to everything that you would need while down there but private enough to relax and get away from it all.

This duplex penthouse is what made my trip to Santo Domingo memorable. I've rented in Santo Domingo before and this is by far the best apartment I've been in. I didn't even use the master bedroom, the bedrooms upstairs have queen beds with private baths in each and they open up onto a huge living area and a huge jacuzzi. Great for single guys and not tacky for families. John is also great, always has great recommendations for restaurants, bars, etc. He is multi lingual and that was great having someone that speaks english. I will be coming back to Santo Domingo and I can't imagine renting anywhere else.

I had an amazing time during New Years, the best part is that the apartment was exactly what I was looking for and even more, it had a jacuzzi with a waterfall, hammocks, a bar, good aC, state of the art everything, a cell phone, free calls to the us, comfortable beds and soft sheets, it was a little paradise inside of such a nice little city. Not to mention the most attentive service I've ever had from an apartment owner, John, all of his recommendations were on point and he checked up on us every day to make sure we were having a good time. Did I forget to mention the strobelights? Hahaha. I highly recommend this apartment and I will definitely be back with more friends soon.
“Santo Domingo Dream”
Reviewed on VRBO
My family stayed at this condo during our recent trip to the Dominican Republic after stumbling across the listing on flipkey. Everything that was written in the description and shown in the pictures was absolutely accurate, we were even more impressed when we arrived and found other cool stuff that we didn't know about before: The optional dance party light, super comfortable beds, Spanish and English Cable TV with all the movie channels, a local cell phone ready to use. John was more than helpful in answering our questions, and concerns and had every thing ready to go for us when we arrived. One small detail that I really appreciated was his information binder that had all the WiFi Codes, Security Codes, and Rental Details. Also, he had maps and information, recommendations, and menus for nearby restaurants. Also, I highly recommend the private chauffeur service. Our driver, Dani, took us everywhere we wanted to go, picked us up from the airport, waited while we shopped at the grocery store, and the souvenir market, showed us places that weren't in the tourist book, negotiated baseball tickets, and even made massage appointments! He was like our personal concierge! We didn't want for anything! Our every need was taken care of. I would absolutely recommend this property to any one visiting Santo Domingo. In fact, if we are fortunate to go back to the Dominican Republic, we will definitely stay at this property again.
“Excelent place to stay!”
A Tripadvisor verified reviewer from Toronto, Canada
John is a real hospitality professional. Runs this place as a five stars hotel. Daily cleaning service, welcome information brouchure, optional driver, etc. Location is great even though you may need a taxi to go places. (PH is in a very exclusive residential area. This is not a commertial area) I will come back very soon.

“A wonderful Experience”
Reviewed on HomeAway
The upstairs, which contains the couch and different places for guests to sit down, complete with a bar, jacuzi, hammocks, compete with sliding doors which gives one the feel of being outside in the wonderful outdoor climate, was like being in a surreal place- a type of heaven on earth that really lent itself both to relaxing as well as using it as a mini dance floor. The place was extremely well designed- there is no doubt that John carefully selected each fixture, ranging from lamps, pictures, furniture, to apartment layout itself. John always answered his phone and promptly responded to concerns. I envy his ownership of the penthouse,and frankly if I was him I would live there myslef and rent out his personal residence. The amenities and sheer spaciousness of the penthouse helped make my birthday celebration one for the ages. I would highly reccomend everybody to stay there.

My two friends and I rental this apartment for 5 days and had a great time. The pictures are exactly what the apartment looks like. The place was great to hang out and for small parties. The apartment was very clean, the maid was great and the owner John was very good as well. John was around just enough to help you, but not enough to make you feel that he was bothering you. This the the nicest apartment I have rented in DR in all my many years of travel there. The one and only drawback to the apartment is the location. While there is a great supermarket very near the apartment and some places to eat, the apartment is not very near all the action, i.e. bars, old city and discos. Cabs also had a hard time finding the address. However, all in all, this rental is a great value for the price and I am pretty sure that it would be hard to find an apartment that is as modern and clean as this one. The hottub was also great to hangout around and talk.

This property is everything the pictures displays and more!!! Very spacious and accommodating for those who like to live it up while on vacation. The owner John is top notch!!! He took care of us from the time we landed until the time we departed. The Penthouse is located in a quiet neighborhood and it was close to the grocery and nearby casino. Loved to open-air bar near the upstairs bedroom...this place was made for entertaining and we made sure we enjoyed every bit of it!!! John please let me know when you get the new property set-up...my buddies have been bugging since I gotten back...they will be ready to go full tilt next summer. Sorry for the delay with my review...I was still recovery!!! Take care and see next year!! Thanks.

Had a great time in Santo Domingo at this luxurious penthouse. I've been to many nice hotels and beach villas, but none that has the personal service you receive from John and his staff. John spends a great deal of attention ensuring that you have everything you need - from cooking services to taking you on a city night tour. With this type of VIP treatment, I will certainly be coming back again soon. My only regret is having to write this review knowing that this property will book up quickly. When I find a good thing, I try to keep it a secret. I'm sure you will feel the same after your stay - you won't be disappointed. Everything listed about the property is as advertised and other reviews are spot on.

I stayed at this fantastic property in June of this year and had a wonderful time. I normally travel to Santo Domingo once every month on business and would usually stay at one of the premium hotels located in the city. This time around I decided to stay some place that was a little more private and conducive to entertaining. All I could say is that it was more than I expected. The place was well appointed and is exactly as shown in the photos on the website. John the landlord was very professional; from the time the booking was made until my departure. He was also very accommodation and was always there to answer any queries that I had. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique experience in Santo Domingo.
“Top Notch Personalized Service and Comfort in Santo Domingo”
Reviewed by Mekka from Arizona
Starting with the reservation, John was very diligent. He is not only charming but an extremely responsive property manager who provides top notch personalized service for his clients. His vast experience in multiple successful entrepre'neurial endeavors is perfect for the array of services he provides you in Santo Domingo. He is fluent in Spanish which comes in handy if Spanish is not your first language. He has a wide network of business owners around the city and the beaches who provide the same high quality service for his clients. A driver meets you at the airport with your name on a placard and takes you directly to the property where John meets you and gives you a detailed tour of his penthouse suite. The house is fully furnished with durable furniture throughout and really setup for a party or as they say down here - fiesta. There is an abundance of natural and fan ventilation, ACs in every room. Free Wifi, a land line and a complimentary cell phone for your use during your stay. (you might have to add minutes to the cellphone) Any US cellphone works down here and is easier to use. Make sure you get a global plan to avoid roaming charges for voice. You should be able to get away with data though..John has the beat on whats going on in town and even provides a "night out on the town" for a fee. I highly recommend this. He runs the place with his sister-in-law who will cook breakfast, lunch, or dinner for a fee cheaper than dining out. She also cleans the property with pride, like it was her own. John was very prompt in responding to issues we had with the house. TV's not working, light bulb going out, the Jacuzzi not getting hot enough, issue with power generator for example. The location is close to a supermarket and several mini-marts so that you can stock up the fridge with whatever groceries you need. Bottom line if you dont stay in a hotel and need to have a non-contrived experience in Santo Domingo, this is the place to be.

I rented this apartment with two other friends and had a great time. The apartment is amazing! It is modern, has air-conditioning, and has a power generator so that everything works all the time (loss of power is common in the DR). It is perfect for fiestas. Aside from the apartment, the service was excellent as well. The maid worked around our schedule and took care of everything. Authentic Dominican meals were prepared for a modest price. The concierge service that John provides was great too. He was available all the time, and got us whatever we needed. He is very friendly and provided personalized service. I highly recommend this vacation rental and would use it again for sure.

"I have been traveling regularly to Santo Domingo for years and have stayed at most of the top rated hotels and some apartments. This trip, I decided to try something new as what I saw on the pictures looked very nice and exciting. Well, it was as advertised, only better. What a place! The penthouse is luxurious, very well appointed and very clean. Everything seemed brand new. The first floor is very tastefully decorated. But what a treat when I got to the second floor and saw the big, wooden high ceiling family room with this stunning bar opening on the jacuzzi in the open terrace with BBQ, shower, bamboos and sugarcane leaves. The very exotic open deck is totally private and when in the hot jacussy looking at the stars you just feel as you were on the beach. I had a hard time choosing between the leopard and zebra bedrooms but I went for the black and white. My friends and I had a few BBB parties, complete with drinks, music videos on the big screen flat TV and we forgot all about NYC where I live. The owner, john, was very nice and very helpful. He checked a few times to make sure everything was to my liking. Talk about service, he came over in five minutes at 10.00 PM to show how to use to jacuzzi heater after I could not get it to work! He also treated me with maid service on Sunday which was not part of the deal. Nelly, the maid, was very sweet and did a great job. Location is in an excellent and safe neighborhood, in a very quiet street, walking distance from a good supermarket and the Dominican Fiesta hotel. All I can say it that it was a perfect experience and a great deal. I actually saved money by entertaining in the family/open deck top floor instead of going out to restaurants and bars. John is an former executive from five stars hotels and it shows. From now on, this is the only place I will stay at when visiting Santo Domingo."

Me and my homies went to santo Domingo from april 7 to the 17 of 2011. The condo was as advertised. We spent most of our time watching the large screen tv in the open living room on the second floor/roof deck which was awesome. There were some minor things wrong with the apartment but nothing you couldn't forget about. Like in one of the bathrooms the shower handle would not stay in the right position, it was too loose and fall to cold, so you had to hold it. Minor things. But other than that, the place was awesome. And the landlord was cool, he would check up on us to see if everything was to our liking. There was Internet, he gave us a cell phone, which we lost, but paid for a new one. Like 30 dollars, no problem. The only thing you have to worry about is the cab drivers. Jean will hook you up with a good taxi guy, and keep his number cause a lot of the taxi guys did not know where there condo was so just make sure they know where they are going.

I was going to Santo Domingo for a mixed business/pleasure trip and stay at this penthouse. It is just gorgeous! Had a really good time and very close to lots of the nightlife sights! Thanks to John that has been very helpfull !
This is my first stay in this penthouse and my friends and I loved it! The penthouse has two floors. It is huge, very comfortable, well equipped, nicely furnished and decorated. The top floor with a very high wooden ceiling looks like a villa by the beach. The Jacuzzi and outside terrace are spectacular (we did a lot of grilling on the outdoor BBQ). The location is excellent, only two blocks from the very nice Dominican Fiesta hotel which has a day pass that allows you to use all their great club facilities (exotic gardens with a big lap pool, tennis courts and gym) for a low fee. There is also a supermarket nearby. The services that John, the owner arranged for us were top of the line, particularly, the private chef services (excellent cook for a bargain price) and the night life tour we took with my friends, what a blast!. John is on top of everything and was always ready to get us whatever we needed. Would surely recommend it to anybody.
