Vastly was incredibly responsive right from the start. Quick to reply. Very interested in helping make for a great experience. His description of the nearby attractions/activities/resources was one of the most highly motivating reasons for choosing his apt. Location is beautiful...literally right on the beach/oceanfront within a condo community. This one is gated and security guard monitored so felt very safe and private enough. Top floor apt with balcony/upper deck was great. Resorts offer many non-motorized water sports activities but limit to one hour usually. Within easy walking distance had access to shops along beach offering same - went kayaking in ocean. Could've done parasailing, windsurfing, paddle boards etc if we'd had time and desire. Vasiliy coordinated a snorkeling excursion with a tour operator - matched lowest price we'd gotten during our beach walks. For experienced snorkelers, Catalina trip not so impressive (and for those with families of younger kids or of certain values/perspectives, the dancing entertainment during the boat ride got a bit too on the racy/adult side for a bit)...but beach was beautiful, buffet provided. But, we really appreciated how VAsiliy worked to help us find options for what we were looking to do. There's shopping within walking distance of 5-10min for groceries and also restaurants (food at Citrus was awesome, service a hair slow though). Wish we could've made it to Captain Cook's for fish...Vasiliy recommended but they happened to be closed on days we were there. With a car there's two malls/plazas with more grocery options and/or shopping if needed, within (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) minutes. Vasiliy strikes me as a very honest, hard working, high integrity guy. He stayed in communication as much as needed helping us to arrive when getting lost in rental car on trip to apt. Same with making sure we made it on to transportation for snorkeling trip. If we're back where he's got properties you can bet we'll be looking him up for options. If you're getting a car, make sure to download or get an area map beforehand to help with directions. My (Hidden by Airbnb) Maps didn't end up working and we got lost on way in. Get used to saying "Hola" ...people are so friendly in Dominican. And, as with any beach destinations you have to be ready to politely say "no gracias" to the periodic beach vendors while taking walks. Great weather, awesome water and beaches, can do as much or as little as you'd like, much much less expensive route to take than all-inclusive resort (and without gaining the weight that comes with all-you-can-eat and drink offerings), felt very safe walking to nearby shops/restaurants outside our gated condo area. Overall great experience. Thanks Vasiliy!
We stayed in Vasiliy's penthouse for 5 days and it was truly a great experience. All together we were 7 people and fit very comfortably in the apartment. Vasiliy's penthouse was very nice and clean. Close to restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacy, and best of all the beach.
Vasiliy is a great host as well. He made us feel right at home from beginning to end. I strongly recommend Vasiliy's place. I was extremely happy with my decision to stay there. Thank you Vasiliy!!
everything about the experience was 5 star. the host went out his way to arrange pick up for us from the airport and even offered to arrange transportation for our departure flight. the place and rooftop was amazing. beach literally right there. safe and secure area with great restaurants in the area. communication prompt and extremely responsive.
Vasiliy is an amazing host. He makes sure you have everything you need in order to get to the place and was very specific and nice when showing us around the place. He gave us great suggestions for places to go nearby in order to get the most out of the experience. Overall, he is a great host and I highly recommend him.
We recently stayed at this spacious pent house suite in the heart of Punta Cana. Vasilly was helpful from beginning to end. He hired transport for us which worked out perfectly. He checked in on the first night and chatted with us on the phone to make sure everything went well. He also let us know of places to go to for food and entertainment. He also stopped in one night to fix the microwave which was not working. During his visit he was very welcoming and heart warming. We (group of 9 young adult girls) felt like he was a very trustworthy person almost like our father. He told us about the night clubs and even hired a taxi for us that very night so that we could hit the town. At the end of the trip our transport arrived right on time as well! This place is conveniently located to the beach and near by restaurants. We really loved the food at Citris the food was so delicious!!! If booking excursions this place is also very close to a pick up spot that most places will pick up! We really enjoyed our stay in Punta Cana and felt very safe thanks in part to Vasilly and his crew.
Increible penthouse al mar! La terraza del techo es super amplia y tiene todas las comodidades para hacer un barbeque. El espacio del departamento es perfecto y todo lo recibimos ordenado y extra limpio. El lugar siempre tiene vigilancia y seguridad. Restaurantes y supermercados cerca. Excelente ubicacion!
Vasiliy's property is very clean and well-stocked. Very close to beach and good restaurants. The upstairs lounge area is excellent for relaxing in the cool breeze. Vasiliy is a motivated businessman and seeks to make guests as comfortable as possible
We booked this luxury suite from Vasily , what a great experience him and he's wife where so helpful and guided us the whole way there. During our stay they had given us great tips that made our trip even better . The suite was supper clean and a couple min from the beach.
I would Recommend to book your trip with them to have a good experience from getting of the plane to the hotel and during your stay it was all so Perfect and we are so glad we found you guys .
We loved our host and our villa. We had an amazing time the entire trip. When we needed Vasiliy he was there and we truly appreciated that, because we had so many questions. The kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms were spotless and we had all of the necessary supplies to live accordingly. Our host provided us with various options for trips and activities and the prices and tour guides were amazing. I would definitely recommend our host as well as our villa to family and friends!!
he was awesome and made it very easy for us
place is very nice
and the location I great
This is a great rental! One block away from the beach and walking distance to restaurants and market. My friends (Group of 7) and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was worth it compared to staying at a resort. The cost was about the same but the privately and freedom was priceless.
Vasiliy communication was superb! Before, during and after. Responded within minutes which was greatly appreciated.
The rooms are clean and spacious, the private bar area on the rooftop is amazing. I would recommend this place for anyone that is looking for an alternative to a hotel/resort at an affordable cost.
My friends and I only stayed for one night before arriving to our resort. Visit it was very responsive before, during, and after the trip. The place was very nice just as the pictures depicted. His wife even left each of us cute little souvenirs for us! There is also a pool with no time restriction, like many hotels and resorts. It's walking distance to the beach, stores, and restaurants. The rooms were clean and spacious, the private bar area was amazing too. We also enjoyed stargazing on the top floor, the view was beautiful. I would recommend this place for anyone that is looking for a easygoing convenient stay.
This place was absolutely amazing!!! Very true to it's pictures and description. It was located just minutes from the beach, great restaurants, and lively bars. My friends and I could not have asked for a better place to spend our Punta Cana vacation at. When we first arrived we had some trouble locating the property, (GPS was leading us to the wrong place), we contacted Vasiliy and he walked us through every step until we arrived to the home. Once we got there we were welcomed with snacks and fresh fruit, as well as a lovely sign. Vasiliy made us feel at home the entire time we were there. He was very helpful in suggesting places to go, and helping us find the right excursions to participate in. Vasiliy's attention to detail is admirable and is really above the standard. I would recommend everyone who wants a worry free vacation experience to stay here. Vasiliy not only took great care of us during our stay, but also had souvenirs for us upon departure. I have stayed at many places around the world including 5 start hotels and resorts but the level of detail placed on our stay at Vasiliy's is unmatched.
Our stay was wonderful! Vasiliy was an excellent host who went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of. His place was very nice and close to the beach and markets as described. Our group of 7 loved the space! It was great for group gatherings and fully functional.
Vasiliy has been a great host, no doubt! I was initially skeptical about staying in an apartment, and not choosing to stay in a resort, specially with water, mosquito concern. Also as me and my family don't speak Espaniol, I had concerns about communicating with people, and get things done. Vasiliy helped us in every step, was present personally to help us when needed. His apartment is in excellent condition, and matched everything according to description, pics! No mosquito at all, free of charge 24/7 drinking water supply... He responded to texts within minutes if not immediately, even when we needed drinking water at 9 pm. He has 2 excellent managers who are competent, fast to resolve issues. I could write a long essay, but in short, my family was able to enjoy the 4 day stay in a way which we couldn't if we stayed in a resort! We could experience local people and their life to some extent. The place is safe. And we strongly felt it was only possible for the excellent service with personal touch from Vasiliy and his team! I strongly recommend his place to adventurous tourists, and wish Vasiliy all the best!
Over the years, I've stayed in a lot of different places. This experience, for me, is most definitely in the Top Five! Upon making the reservation Vasily was very professional and responded back via email and text right away to our reservation. Couple of days before our reservation Vasily texted me to make sure we had all the information and to ask if we needed transportation from the airport to the apartment. The morning of our reservation he contacted me again to find out if we were on our way and about what time our arrival would be. He suggested once we arrived to meet him at the apartment to go over some details. Vasily was very courteous to our feelings and our time down there. The apartment itself was very clean. The living area was very comfortable, but one of my favorite features was the balcony with the confy rocking chairs. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom were very spacious. We had a great time and it was conveniently located close to the beach, restaurants and stores. Vasily came back the day of our departure to make sure we had a good experience and also brought some souvenirs for our family, that was extra especial. We would love to come back again soon. Thank you Vasily!
Vasiliy was extremely accommodating, sorting out all our transportation needs and giving great recommendations on activities. He was an absolutely wonderful host with great knowledge of the area and would highly recommend anyone to stay with him.
Our host, Vasiliy, was always in contact making sure everything was going smoothly, as well as recommending places to visit and restaurants to eat in, he always made sure everything was perfect and always had solutions to problems we faced. Vasiliy's crew was very nice, they were there waiting for us when we arrived and made sure we had everything necessary. The house had space, and was cleaned while we were there. We had to trouble getting around, just meters away from the beach made it easy to enjoy water activities.
Would definitely recommend for anything planning a relaxing holiday.
Vasiliy's penthouse was amazing! We came to get away have a relaxing week at the beach, and we got all of that and more. The apartment is exactly like the pictures and we really loved the second floor deck! It has a great view and hammocks, a jacuzzi, a stereo to listen to music! Vasiliy went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed and was available for questions anytime of day. This was definitely one of my best airbnb experiences and we had an amazing time. Thank you Vasiliy!
Vasiliy was very helpful and tried to contact us often to make sure everything was going well. We had plenty of room for all 6 adults. The penthouse was close to the beach, restaurants and stores which was wonderful for us walking around. The view from the top level was awesome and the bar/spa level was perfect for our grilling and partying. We had a wonderful time an really enjoyed ourselves.
I couldn't have asked for a better host and a better apartment! vasily went out of his way to make sure we have to the best trip and experience possible. the penthouse is in a perfect location and is so spacious and well kept. the roof was our favorite part of the house.
For those who wish to experience Punta Cana without the all-inclusive resorts, Vasily's place is a little piece of paradise. We especially loved the rooftop and hammock and spent many hours there. As 4 New Yorkers who do not have a large kitchens and outdoor space at home, we took full advantage of the upstairs grill - Vasily's manager helped us find a vendor who provided door to door delivery of wonderful fresh seafood.
The house is just a short walk from the beach (where a lovely beach bar has chairs for guests to use), 2 small super markets and other convenience stores. Vasily helped us arrange taxi when we needed to venture further.
Vasily was very communicative and helpful. There was a small glitch with his local manger on the first day, but Vasily and his wife was very quick to help fix it and make our stay very enjoyable. We would certainly stay here again when we return to DR in the future.
We had a great stay in the penthouse apartment. It has a huge rooftop relaxation area, with views over surrounding area. In the evenings you can enjoy the soundtrack of the neighbouring resorts evening program. 🙂
Turquoise Beach (yeah, a very precise name) is a very short walking distance away and is picture perfect, not too crowded and with beach chairs available from the beach bar.
Walk the other way and you'll find a nice little village center with supermarket and nice restaurants.
Vasily and the property managers Artem & Tanya were very helpful and helped us to arrange also shuttle to airport.
Great place, clean, comfortable with a really nice rooftop deck very close to the beach. Vasiliy was really attentive, checking in periodically via (Hidden by Airbnb) to see if we needed anything. Highly recommend
We had a great experience with Vasiliy and his team who went way beyond their way and helped us getting oriented in Dominican republic, the apartment is clean spacious and the terrace is a great cherry on the cake 😉 I can fully recommend Vasiliy and his team.
My family and I had an amazing stay at Vasiliy's home. We stayed 5 nights at an all inclusive and 3 nights at Vasiliy's and wish we would have done it the opposite. The rooftop is beautiful and we spent all our time up there. Vasiliy and his friend went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. They were very prompt with all correspondence and helped us with our various needs. I would highly recommend anyone traveling to Punta Cana to consider staying at Vasiliy's home. The beach is a block away and a handful of restaurants are only a block away in the opposite direction. If I ever find myself in Punta Cana again, I know where I will be staying. A+
Host was excellent and responsive in timely manner to any problems.
Vasiliy's assistant was wonderful, pleasant and helpful
The apartment was so nice and espacious! We had a lot of fun. It was very well located. Everything was so clean and welcoming! My best rent so far! Will be definetly going back!! Vasilly was always on call and very atentive, very nice and acomodating!!
Location is amazing. Delicious restaurants half a block away, fruit stand half a block away, small shopping center a block away, beach a block away.
Host was incredibly helpful. Very patient with his time, explained all the ins and outs, scenic destinations, etc.. He also has two associates (Artem and Tanya) who drove us around all of DR for a very reasonable price, and showed us places that we could have never gotten into as tourists. Forget the touristy excursions; just hire Artem and Tanya. HIGHLY recommend!!
House is very spacious, rooftop area perfect for a summer grill. Kitchen fully stocked, plentiful towels, everything was just peachy.
We had a great time a Vasilly's place over the Christmas Holiday. The condo is centrally located in Putna Cana so walking around is easy. The condo is very clean, modern and well equipped. It is also very big. Easily would fit 3 couples or a large family. The one thing i would suggest is make plans ahead of time for getting to a beach club. The only public beaches we found that we could walk to are not as nice is the ones you have to walk by to get there. We had a car so we easily drove to some of the private beach clubs. The highlight of our stay was Tonya and Armeta. They work for Vasilly and were very accommodating. The gave us a tour and were always available to answer questions.
