Great place to stay, the photo's don't really do the place justice. Great location quiet and very safe and within a short walking distance of the main attractions and shops in Melville. Roman and his partner were great hosts, good communications and very helpful. We would recommend Roman and his house.

Everything about our stay was perfect! Roman is a great host and even came to our rescue when we accidentally left a set of our keys inside! The accommodations are perfect for a family or a business trip! What a great airbnb success! Thank you for everything Roman!
