Arik Shtern founded the company after living in United States for almost 20 years. “As an Odessa native, growing up in Odessa and seeing it transform from a bare Soviet resort city with dismal tourist infrastructure into a wonderful destination it is today is a fantastic feeling. Numerous visits back to Odessa in the late 1990s have prompted me to start the company as I found hotel prices to be exuberant and offering mediocre services, while the short term apartment rentals offered incredible value with absolutely central location. They sold themselves, yet the agencies offering them lacked professionalism and ethics required for any high quality business.
