friendly and nice person, and i have my two quiet kids in the house, they are very discipline
First and foremost, what I was looking for in my heart (and did not verbalize) was exactly what Altagracia provided ... a home! Moving, yes moving, to DR was an idea that made itself clear in January while on vacation (had ideas of moving to a latin country for a few years). A friend recommend Altagracia because of my expectations of making a smooth transition from the US into a culture where I was a fish out of water. Altagracia has proven to be an exceptional host from culture immersion to just simple conversations about life. She will make sure you understand culture, environment, people ... the way life is (Dominican style lol). Altagracia, also affectionately known as "Rosie" is able to make you comfortable even when you can't speak a word of spanish. She has a vast knowledge of everything dominican and is able to communicate the information well. If you like your independence, you got it ... if you require assistance or just want her as a guide ... she is able to provide just that! Every question I had she had either already answered through talking or she will answer as best as possible ... honest, reliable, and clear communication.
I feel my choice in Altagracia's home was a great decision ... su casa es mi casa! Her home is quaint yet spacious and is a typical dominican home (house). She has two (girls) children who are very welcoming and very funny might I add. Altagracia allows you to feelnlike family.
Her neighbors were friendly, and because I wanted everything dominican style, they even helped with learning the culture. There is even a four-legged feline friend who visits daily, however he is never a bother.
There are two bus services to center of the capital that is just steps away from her home; there is also a car service (taxi). This city is alive and there is someone always out even more so, food, music, bars and neighbors are easily accessible and Altagracia will always give you guidance!
Altagracia clearly cares for her guests and is very fair in her work ethics. She has easily become apart of my heart.
oh Charo you make me cry,!!!! LOL,
I couldn't have asked for a better host! She was so attentive before I even arrived. She called me to ask were there any special things I wanted to do during the trip and she helped me with all of them. My father stayed there as well and he was impressed by how clean she keeps her house, clean like a hotel. She also helped us with getting around the city and of course was there waiting for us when we got off the airport. I met some of her neighbors and they all have nothing but good things to say about her, and that I am in good hands.
For me this was more of a move to Santo Domingo more than a vacation, and Alta being wonderful as usual invited for me to stay with her for a few months as I get adjusted to living in another country. So for me to stay she met my expectations is an understatement. She is absolutely wonderful and genuine, I recommend anyone coming to Santo Domingo and wants a more Dominican homely feeling they should stay here!
Thank you, and Mr. Deniss too, now he is my father as well, I apreciate his words, thanks a lot.
My first trip to the Dominican Republic was an amazement. Being in the city and sharing with the people of the country was beautiful. My host Altagracia is very pleasent and beautiful in spirit. Her English is very good and can carry conversation about anything. Willing to assist you with any questions about the Dominican life and offer her assistance in touring the city if needed. If your family oriented you will feel at home in this apartment. Her daughters , friends and family are always around. However the apartment is private and cozy enough to be personal if the crowed is not your preference. Its clean, and very comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay and honestly Altagraci made it her business to see to it. I will be staying here again in the near future great experince.
O yea she can make a mean egg, tomatoe and onion amolet, man delicious. Can't wait to get back I feel at home there.
thanks joey you are a lovely god man, and I know god have good things for you in future for you and your kids, I am very happy to met you too my friend, and you are always welcome to Santo Domingo, whenever you are ready, thanks a lot, take care
The reservation was canceled 24 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I mentioned to Altagracia that I was surprised she didn't say there were two children in the house. I had not anticipated this as part of the arrangement. The girls turned out to be fun, and I'm glad they were there. Thanks to them, I met a dozen other great kids as well.This place is for the traveler who is able to relax in a home environment, as well as fit into a simple small community. I will be visiting Santo Domingo frequently in the future, and I'm sure I will be looking forward to visiting the community of friends I now consider family. Altagracia is fun and helpful.
Altagracia is a great hostess. She makes sure you get to where you're going no problem and ensures you're comfortable. Real hospitality. Home is about 15-20 minutes to city center and offers a real authentic Dominican experience.
I AM THE GENTLEMEN IN MOST OF SRA. ALTAGRACIA'S PHOTOS. I STAY AT HER HOME THREE OR FOUR TIMES PER YEAR. FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS, I CAN ONLY SAY THAT I WISH I WOULD OF MET HER ON MY INITIAL TWO VISITS TO SANTO DOMINGO. AT HER HOME, I FEEL LIKE PART OF THE COMMUNITY. FAR ENOUGH FROM THE CENTER OF THE CAPITAL AND EASY TO GET THERE BY CAR OR TAXI. AS WITH MOST THINGS, PATIENCE WILL GET YOU EVERYWHERE.
WHATEVER YOUR PLANS ARE, SRA. ALTAGRACIA CAN HELP YOU. ON A TIGHT BUDGET, SAY NO MORE. FROM SHOPPING, DINNING OUT,TELECOMUNICATIONS (HOME/CELL LINE SERVICE), BUYING PROPERTY,NETWORKING OPPURTUNITIES IN YOUR FIELD,ETC. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ALTAGRACIA BEFORE YOU VENTURE ANY FURTHER INTO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. HIGH/LOW END PRICES ON SERVICES....SHE HAS THE LAST WORD ON THE SUBJECT OR SHE WILL GET ON THAT PHONE AND WITHIN FIVE MINUTES YOU WILL HAVE YOUR ANSWER. A TRUE PROFFESSIONAL AND FLEXABLE IN HER DEALINGS. FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME REGARDING ALTAGRACIA, HER PROPERTY, OR LOCATION.
