We had a great weekend in Victor's and Larisa's downstairs apartment. It is very quiet and cozy... even though it is not a full apartment (kitchenette, etc,) there is ample amenities to accommodate your necessary needs. There is a panty closet packed with anything you would need for comfort, fresh coffee for the coffeemaker, and the Larisa informed us there were a couple of stocked waters and microbrews in the fridge for our enjoying for our arrival. Our hosts were accessible throughout our stay upstairs if needed and always left the light and driveway gate open for us if we came in late. Easy drive to either ferry stop to the city, good eats in town... It was a fun weekend. Thank you, Victor and Larisa!
My wife and I just returned from an incredible 3 day Memorial Day weekend stay at Victor and Larisa's home.
Victor and Larisa were extremely warm and welcoming hosts and as the other reviews mention, the accommodations are outstanding. We loved the sauna and shower/steam room.
The location is great for exploring upper New Jersey. We spent some time in Asbury Park (only a 20 minute drive south) and one day took the nearby Seastreak ferry over to NYC and back.
Because the weather was cold and rainy during our visit, we didn't get to enjoy the beaches as we had hoped to, but were able to find quite a few hidden gems in the area. Be sure to visit Carton Brewing Company (only 1.5 miles away) for a tour of their brewery and a generous tasting of their beers.
My boyfriend and I stayed with Victor and Larisa for a long weekend to enjoy the beach and get away from NYC. The house and neighborhood are lovely and the private section of the house they make available is fantastic. We bike a lot so the location was perfect for easily getting around and the path to town and Sandy hook is beautiful. We will surely be back!
Victor and Larisa were the perfect hosts. The shower in their place is outstanding. Would definitely stay there again.
Genial todo! Tanto Victor como su esposa son encantadores. Nos han acogido estupendamente. El apartamento esta muy bien. En la parte trasera hay una especie de terracita donde esta la barbacoa y da a una especie de bosque muy tranquilo. Tienen aire acondicionado, fundamental para el calor del verano. Hemos pasado un fin de semana magnifico.
Es conveniente llevar coche o bicicleta aunque nosotros nos hemos movido en taxi para ir a la playa (Sandy Hook) y no es caro ($15-18).
Viktor could not be more welcoming nor more helpful. Fabulously hospitable, charming, entertaining and a through-and-through stand up guy and an old school gentleman. His house was constructed for a well known rock star - and the apartment you rent comes complete with a pool table and a sauna - for your exclusive use. And a hi-tech shower that will blow you away. The sofa bed is comfortable, the decor clean - wood floors throughout - there is a HUGE amount of space - even a private outside area with grill. But the star is Viktor. And his family. You will not be treated better anywhere.
My boyfriend and I went for a relaxing beach getaway and that's exactly what we got. Their house is beautiful and the beach is less than 10 minutes away. They went out of their way to set up the room very nicely...had every item that a hotel would have and more. They even had champagne waiting for us in the fridge and menus from local restaurants and a map of the area for us. Their shower was also amazing. Victor and his wife were very welcoming and gave us a tour when we arrived and were available whenever we needed them. We would definitely love to stay there again!
the place was great. We brought our bikes on the ferry and biked all over the coast. and when we got back to the house got to enjoy the awesome set up the Pasilis's have for their guests. Including the couple of beers they had waiting in the mini fridge they have for your use and the amazing shower that will make you not want to get out.
If i end up visiting atlantic highlands again... I'd love to come back to this place.
What a lovely weekend away from the city. Easily accessible by ferries from NYC, you can even bring your bike - making the beaches of Sandy Hook easily accessible if you don't have a car. The apartment is most comfortable, clean, roomy and private. A back deck view of the little wooded valley is peaceful and relaxing and there was even a bbq for my use. Victor and his wife were most hospitable. I hope to visit again!
Very nice people from Russia via the USA. It was fun having them to stay. Left the room very nice and tidy.
lovely people - welcome back!
Victor is a very sympatic, friendly and uncomplicate guest. He left the apartment proper and in best conditions. You are always welcome again in Voltaire Apartments.
