Karmen's place was in a fabulous location not more than 150 meters from the beach. Very clean and private, this was a great choice for our family while in Samara. Karmen was so friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would stay here again for sure. Thanks Karmen for offering your hospitality for our vacation.... More

But I checked out after... More
