    Looking for a small clean apartment in the colonial zone for a year lease.

    Does anyone know who I need to contact?

    Listin Diario usually has the best real estate listings..

    If you do not have a Dominican guarantor, it will be harder for you to find an apartment... so if you can get that lined up first, it will be easier for you.

    There are some folks here who live in the Zona and may know of places so keep posting and asking......

    yes.. but the search for specific neighborhoods does not work so you have to just look for the Zona or Gazcue...You are not going to find a lot of listings for the Zona since there really are not that many apartments for rent there. More family homes and hotels.. There are some that are furnished and geared to expats but I found that they were very small and expensive compared to Gazcue.

    There are some posters here who may help you out in the Zona if you keep pestering them,..,

    But really

    IMHO Gazcue is a nicer place to live.. more room to walk, nicer sidewalks, better services... and only a ten mionute walk...

    But you really have to WALK it,, or drive it ,. to figure out the neighborhoods because they change block by block]

    I would recommend Hostal Plaza Yu on Pasteur off Santiago for a month,, it is a nice family run place with studio apartments complete with all appliances, very secure, away from the hustle,.. safe to walk and close to good public transport.. Just nest in there for a month.. get your good shoes and map and the Listin and walk about...

    that is the best way, I think

    Thanks for all the helpful information.

    Is IMHO Gazcue an apartment building or an area? If it is an area, can you recommend a good building there?

    I checked listin Diario and there is no listings for Zona or Gazcue.

    Is there a better way to search for these apartments?

    Default Gascue

    Gascue is a neighborhood, just west of the colonial zone. You also might try looking in ciudad neuvo neighborhood also. Ask in the colmados for a "corredor" who might help finding an apartment.

    Gazcue is an area/ section. IMHO is an acronym for In My Humble Opinion.

    Good luck.

    IMO opinion like anything else you need to be on the ground. Setting up viewings from abroad is not going to work and probably pointless. Get into an Aparthotel and spend a week checking out what you want. Most places for rent have signs on the balcons so just take your celular and call the apartments you like the look of. I don't like agents in Santo Domingo, I have founf them to be less than helpful and work you from the crap upwards until they strike something acceptable for you, instead of giving you what they probably already know you are looking for, and they are more expensive than going at it with the landlord directly.
    Just be careful doing it that way and try to be sure you are completely aware of what is expected of you annd what you are entitled to.
