Rental holiday accommodation incorporating a yacht house on the Black Sea in the Crimea

The four storey quayside block is divided into four separate units that each occupy a floor. The larger two bedroom apartments are placed on the second and third floors. Single bedroom flats are below, with half of the the ground and first story accommodation occupied by a double height storage room for a 13 metre yacht.

The living spaces above the ground floor have full width bi-folding doors to provide to access to private balconies and terraces that are offset from each other to allow for privacy and varied views.

There is a shared sauna on the ground floor, a shared terrace on the second floor and a rooftop terrace that allows 360 degree views of both the sea and the Crimean mountains.
