I am a very adventurous, entrepreneurship, kind of person. I like riding bike, kitesufing, beach, flying, traveling.
Francisco was a great and welcoming host. The apartment is modern & clean. I stayed there on a Sunday to visit the local carnival and Francisco was so kind to drop me off at the monument where the festivities take place. Thanks for everything Francisco!
Francisco's place was huge and immaculate. The photos do not do it justice. It was an amazing room in a great neighborhood and Francisco was really nice. He even picked me up from the airport and offered to drop me off at the bus station at the end. next time I am in Santiago, im definitely staying with him....hes a great guy
Warm (website hidden) our host who picked us up by car at the bus (email hidden)ry pleasant and energitic. He found the time to explain many useful détails and took us on a trip to the countryside one qfternoon.
We had a large room and a private bathroom in his superb apartment with use of the kitchen in an elegent distrit . We enjoyed our stay and the company of Francisco.
My girlfriend and I stayed with Francisco for 2 nights during our 11 night trip to the DR. His apartment is conveniently located 15min away from Santiago International (STI). He was a very informative, kind, and generous host, who picked us up from the airport and made us feel welcome by helping us with questions and giving us a tour of his neighborhood. He brought us to his delicious restaurant which is a very nice place to become accommodated to Dominican food and night life. He was also kind enough to help arrange taxi services, and introduce us to his friends. He and his friends speak English very well, and the two of us enjoyed sharing travel stories over beer and food.
His room was a private room with double bed, and had access to a bathroom. There is not a lot of table or desk space to really unpack for an extended amount of time, but his room is comfortable and clean, and is perfect for a single night. The bathroom has a nice shower and is also very clean. We left Francisco's apartment to travel to other cities in the DR. Luckily his apartment is located very close to the major bus stations. It costs about 500pesos to get from the airport to Frank's house, and about 150pesos to get from Frank's house to the bus station by taxi.
Frank's apartment is the next best thing to a hotel room.
I just can recommend to choose staying at Fran´s house. He is so nice, helps you with everything you may ask for (picking up from the airport, sightseeing, Internet...) and you can trust in him to have save and great time in Santiago. Beautyful house in a quiet and nice area of the city and to say it in his words: my house is your house - makes you feel welcome and you can have a very good time here...
Thanks Fran :-)
For anyone interested in a visit to the Santiago area they should contact Francisco. He has a beautifull home in a great location that is close to everything. He has excellent English for those of us who are not fluent in Spanish. He is very easy going and flexible to work with.
My only regret is I couldn't stay longer.
