Very well balanced: central location, vicinity of the supermarket, sea-resorts and other touristic facilities. Also the quiet ambiance and the eclectic style will make your stay unforgettable.

Alex is a really good host. He is helpful and hospitable guy. He helped me about many subjects during my vacation.
As positive sides, The apartment itself, it's in a good location and is spacecious. Walking 15-20 minutes, you can reach either the center of Odessa. It's not super central, but the positive side of that is that it's very quiet at night. There is a bank near the apartment and market is just two blocks away from the apartment. Kitchen is fully equipped with wares, you can cook at home if you dont want to eat at the outside.
As negative sides, The bathroom is really small as he mentioned before. For example, there is no bathroom sink inside. Therefore washing face and brushing teeth can be a little bit challenging. It is hard to have a shower even if you are a short person. In addition, apartment was dusty while I was staying and pilows looked dirty to me. Because those were like dark grey color. And there was renovation on the first floor that he didn't mention to me before I came.
My overall satisfaction is not so good. I barely recommend his house to guests who want to visit Odessa.
Жили в квартире Алекса с 10 по 16 августа 2013 года. Всё великолепно! Квартира большая, светлая, чистая, тихая, хорошо проветривается. Имеется хорошая новая мебель. Есть вся необходимая посуда. В квартире есть комнатные растения в горшках (что очень радует глаз). Квартира домашняя, нет чувства, что попал в гостиницу. Очень хорошая бытовая техника (и даже стиральный порошок для машинки). Приятно порадовало наличие системы очистки воды. Квартира удобно расположена. Очень нравилось ходить на море разными улочками старой Одессы. Так же было не далеко и интересно гулять до основных туристических мест (ул. Дерибасовская, Потёмкинская лестница и т.д.). Очень заботливый хозяин, рассказал про Одессу, подсказал куда сходить/съездить. Посоветовал какой дорогой лучше нам возвращаться домой (т.к. мы приехали из другой страны). Так же было приятно приехав домой увидеть сообщение от Алекса в котором он спрашивал как мы доехали. У нас остались самые тёплые воспоминания об Одессе, спасибо за это Алексу! В следующий раз едем опять к Алексу!
Alex is a great host, very educated man who can speak many languages :) I loved his eclectic apartment, making the best stay possible in Odessa! Great neighborhood close to everything, very comfortable and cozy, I already miss my odessa home!!! Will contact you when I come back to odessa, for sure! Take care Alex and keep in touch!
Отдохнули очень хорошо, квартира просторная, удобная по расположению (все в шаговой доступности), ничего плохого написать не могу.
Rest is very good, the apartment is spacious, convenient location (walking distance), there is nothing bad I can not write.
Alex is a very nice host. I was very pleased with the quick and friendly communication before, during and after the stay. The apartment is clean and comfortable and has a good vibe. We were traveling with 3 people and the size of the apartment is good for this. The staircase is a little demanding, this might be taken into consideration depending on the travelers. The rooms are spacious, the beds are good, the kitchen fully equipped. The bathroom is small and cute. It might be difficult to shower for not so flexible people. It has a very nice balcony with a good view.
The location of the apartment is very good. The neighborhood has some nice cafes. Supermarket and bank are very close. The whole city is very accessible with taxis, and if you manage to figure out the public transport, there is a stop nearby.
We had a lovely stay and would recommend you this apartment and Alex as a host!
Really great apartment - there was a lot of space and all of us (4 people) felt really comfortable here! Flat was clean and had everything we needed.
Also the location is awesome - historic building in historic center of Odessa.
Alex is friendly and attentive host!
Highly recommend this apartment! You won't regret! :)
Great host and really nice and comfortable apartment in a beautiful historical place! I did enjoy my stay there. Alex was very friendly and helpful.
Отличная квартира и прекрасный хозяин! Алексей ждал заранее, был очень дружелюбен, все объяснил и оставил нас в своей уютной квартире со всеми удобствами. При выселении также уточнил у нас желаемое время и приехал ровно тогда, когда и договаривались. Очень советую эту квартиру и спасибо Алексею! Было очень приятно иметь с вами дело.
