It all started in 2004 when John, our founder, lived in Brazil and started to rent a condo in the Dominican Republic as a short-term vacation rental. He noticed the need for accommodations and nightlife expertise for the many groups coming to Santo Domingo to party.
He is an American citizen born and raised in Europe and a former executive of luxury hotel chain Ritz-Carlton USA and Hilton Latin America. His professional luxury hospitality background coupled with his love for the nightlife convinced him that it was a perfect combination to start a party vacation rental business in the Dominican Republic. The DR is the perfect party destination with great weather all year long, stunning beaches, attractive and warm people and a nonstop party atmosphere everywhere.
In 2009, he returned to the DR to set up a beautiful, luxury penthouse in the capital that quickly became the N.1 rated property on TripAdvisor out of thousands of rentals. He started alone in 2010 and received every group himself; cooked for some, taking care of whatever the guys needed, went to the beach, was their tour guide and of course, took them out to party.
Being a party animal with all the connections in the hot and trendy places in town assured that his guests had an amazing time. In addition, the superior quality accommodation and services focused on American guys coming to party turned a simple trip into an unforgettable party vacation. Many people became regulars and some good friends.
In 2011, our first driver, Danny, who is still with us, joined the company. In 2012, new properties and drivers when added to meet the high demand on the rental sites and our new website. John and his crew organized dozens and dozens of bachelor parties, birthday and fun trips. Bachelorette and mixed groups started to arrive as well. Check out one of the hundreds of reviews we got.
Trip of a Lifetime!
“What an unbelievable trip! First off, John is the man. For our group, it was the first time we were coming to Santo Domingo. From what we heard from our friends and what we read on the internet, a place like this can be hard to plan on our own, as you can easily get hustled, don’t know what the good places are to go to, and more importantly, pay more than you have to. By going through John, all those concerns were alleviated as he planned the entire weekend for us. This Colonial style Party House/Hotel was perfect for our group. It has 7 rooms and an amazing rooftop terrace with a view of the city and river. Next, the party minivans and drivers made the trip even better. The drivers (Danny and Angel) are fun guys, who also spoke english. They were also very organized, accomodating, and on time. They also were key in helping translate for us whenever we needed it. Having the vans with us was key, as we had a greater sense of security moving around. And lastly, the “Nightlife Tour” was a great way to see the nightlife in the city and have fun partying at all the good places in the city. John has great relationships with all the bars, which makes it easier to get in. Overall, John’s party company is the way to go for any group trying to party in Santo Domingo. I highly recommend anyone, especially if you’re going for the first time, to go through John.”

With us, you are dealing with locals who know the party business and are out every weekend, not an office who knows where and someone who has never been to the places he recommends.
John still goes out occasionally with the guys even though his 25-year-old girlfriend keeps him busy. 😂 He is still the same simple party guy who loves a good and wild time with music, friends, alcohol and beautiful friendly people, the ingredients of any great party. He will be in Mexico checking out personally all the accommodations, services and activities we offer and of course partying in the clubs.
Your business and trust made us the N.1 Party company in the Caribbean
