The Experience

We have a Brazilian sweets business out of our apartment in Santo Domingo. We mainly need help with content creation for our social media (photography, making reels, planning our weekly posts), if we have high demand we might teach you to make the sweets, package them, some logistic processes, and help out with clean-up. Most days are pretty chill around here. Gift-giving holidays are more intense, and we might ask for extra help.

Where do I even begin? I think the fact that this was my second time with the home in less than half a year is proof enough of how this experience was! Audrey, thank you so much for welcoming me yet again and giving me a chance to indulge in the culture and give it back in some way! You're super awesome and you already know it! From clicking photos with fake laughs to enjoying real gigs, we had a great time. I've said it before and I'll say it again, YOU made it feel like HOME!! I can only say that anyone will be incredibly lucky to have you as their friend and host! Will be back! 🫶

Incredible experience, definitely worth the trip. Audrey was not only extremely kind and helpful, but she also ensured we had the chance to immerse ourselves in the Santo Domingo lifestyle. Good accomodations and good people.

Let me start by saying this: I HAD AN AMAZING TIME! It was so fun to work with Audrey and learn about her brigadeiros business. The work itself was so fun - helping them showcase their exquisite craft to the world through Instagram. Both Audrey and Carl were so chill, respectful, and friendly. I feel like we're a big family already! I totally recommend this to everyone who likes to be creative and can help capture the essence of their business. You get to express Santo Domingo - trust me, you'll always have something to explore! I'm already wanting to come back!! Much love to you ❤️

This was such an amazing experience. Both Audrey and Carl are so welcoming and they are more than willing to take you around Santo Domingo to explore. Definitely ask about all their food recommendations because they have some good ones! During the time the host are working, you are more than free to go explore by yourself which I did by going to a national park or sitting at a coffee shop. A truly amazing and eye opening experience!
