    You are way too early to start this search. Too much can and will change between now and October. I would suggest you start your search in August.

    Totally agreee with you, we're having enquiries for late 2011/early 2012 already (and have been for weeks).
    Good luck with your search.
    Tropical Regards

    I agree with DMV 123. There is a big difference between scheduling well in advance on a vacation rental for a few days to maybe a month or so at most (at inflated vacation rental prices) and doing the same when you are renting an apartment for 5 months. Most landlords who are willing and able to rent a place for that length of time are dealing with residents, whether they be Dominicans or expats. They either don't know when/if someone will move out and they will have an opening, or are reluctant to commit a large block of time several months down the road for fear that they will lose out on possible long time renters in the intervening period who won't want to get into a situation where they will have to move out in a few months.

    I may be of some help for you. I’ve lived here in the north for awhile and just moved into the POP area. Made several contacts for apt all within your price range and amenities required. What I found within the price range you are budgeting for was that many units did not have kitchen appliances, as well as no basic furniture. However, I did find via a good friend a place that so far I’m very happy to be living in. It is an apt block (6 units), very central, and with excellent safety features attached. . The owners live next door and would provide a lease based on your time requirement. At present there are actually 2 units (2nd floor) that are available. They're fully furnished, 2Bdrms, 1 bath, appliances, balcony, ceiling fans, elect incl. (maxRD900), inverter for each unit. The only drawback for me is that it is cold water only, and at times the security dogs in the back. If you want, PM me and I could take some photos of my place and send them to you, as well as keep you updated on the availability.
