Thank you, I was more that satisfied the the apartment and transfer service from and back to the Odessa Airport. The apartment was just as pictured, clean and comfortable. The location was very well situated. When I arrived in Odessa the driver (Sergey) was waiting for me and he had made arrangements to bring my friend to the airport to meet me. Sergey even called my friend the day before I was scheduled to leave to be sure I remembered the time we had to leave for the airport. When it was time to leave he was at my apartment before sunrise and had me to the airport in time for my flight. The car was clean and in top condition, I enjoyed the ride and conversation with Sergey, he a great representation of your business. I know that I will be returning to Nikolaev and would NOT consider using another service. Thank you for having a part in making my trip to Nikolaev so enjoyable.
