About Scott Raymond

Retired Canadian Architect. Bought in Russia because I worked under contract there for one year. Fell in love with this city for so many reasons. You will understand the reasons once you visit ST Petersburg. Then you will also have her in your blood! This city is really breath taking. At night it an absolute jewel, sparking, and powerful. You will feel the pulse like no other city you have visited before! The River tours are spectacular so be sure to engage one while your on Nevsky Street as they ALL depart from Nevsky, just up the street from our Condominium. I have traveled the Planet but St Petersburg is very different, so refreshing, so unique, so classy, and so engaging. Get ready for the experience of your life!

Scott Raymond purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Scott Raymond chose St Petersburg

Bought in St Petersburg because this city is so unique in so many ways. It is Paris and Amsterdam under the same cover. Sidewalk cafes, people, sights, sounds, Rivers, Churches, Museums, Architecture, so many topics. All so outstanding in this amazing city. White nights in June wow what a spectacular sight. So much to see and so much to do! But most important to me was to in right in the middle of the action cause I do not like to commute. Did that in Canada and don't want it anymore. So I bought on the best Street in Town, on the Best Block in the City. Heartbeat of St Petersburg! It is easy to be swayed by a lower price for accomodations, don't do it. The commute in St Petersburg will Kill you. You will spend all your time commuting in lieu of touring. You already do that at home, don't do it on your vacation!

What makes this apartment unique

Most important while I am on Nevsky Prospect, I am inset in a courtyard so it is quiet at night and you can sleep. Beautiful garden and huge trees in front of my apartment for spectacular view Night lighting on the Courtyard and just sensational. You can visit everything from this location within minutes without wasting your day and time getting there! I know I keep commenting on our location, but it really is one of the most important aspects of Visiting St Petersburg! Most important your going to be SAFE here. Nevsky is by far the most heavily police patrolled Street in the entire city. It is the major tourist zone so your always in one of he best locations in town. Most important: I am a veteran in Petersburg living here for 11 Years. I have prepared a 'Insiders List' which is at your computer work station when you check in! It is going to save you so much frustration! It is going to tell you How, where and when to go to everything depending on the time of the day. Also listed is a super gym close by where it is state of the art and you can pay to enter by the day! You are going to be educated from the inside so the Taxi drivers don't kill you on price, and you know the secret as to how Russians get Taxi's at Half price or less all day everyday! Saint Petersburg Insider List Your most powerful tool on your vacation! Also remember if you need 2 Bedrooms or need to sleep 6 Persons we have a alternate Option! I can set you up with 2 Persons/ 4 Persons/ or 6 Persons!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great value, comfort, and location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are just finishing five nights at Nevsky 84. This has been an outstanding experience. The location is about as good as it gets, with the Main Street of Nevsky literally steps away. But, because the flat is in a courtyard, we were spared the noise of the busy street.

Inside, the flat is as described, and quite comfortable and clean. Hardwood floors are much appreciated as there are no lingering odors or critters hiding in carpet. Spacious, open concept sitting room and kitchen. Two bedrooms with double (maybe queen) beds, but only one has a window the outside. The bathroom is split, with the toilet separated from the shower, making it easy for couples to "multitask".

The local property manager was very helpful and responsive.

We would certainly stay here again, without hesitation!

It as as described

  • 5 of 5

We spent New Years,2012/3 here. Agree with the other reviewers. The apartment is as seen in the photos. Location to The Hermitage, restaurants, grocery store and myriad shops as described.

Two comments may aid you ; unfortunately we were not aware that the water is not potable and the apartment is on the fourth floor after long flights up.

In the winter be prepared for very cold, snowy and VERY Icey walking, but beautiful lights and stores and New Years in Palace Sguare are special.

We found the apt to be just as described and photographed: the location was excellent, the apt was spacious, cheerful and clean, very modern. The owner was very helpful, we used many of his suggestions, and the management agency there was also very helpful.

Perfect Central St. Petersburg Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolute find on VRBO. The apartment was just as advertised, it was clean, well stocked and in a safe and secure building. The owner put me in contact with a local agent who was able to arrange my pick/return at the train station along with tourist visa paperwork. The transfers and paperwork went like clockwork.

The apartment was equiped with wireless which worked without issue. All and all the location and accomodations made for my quick trip to St. Petersburg all that much better. Oh, the insider tips that were sent to me, were indespensible and really gave a me head start on learning a facinating city and the immediate area in a short amount of time. I am looking foward to returing to this wonderful city and would highly recommend this property!

St Petersburg Times Square location, drop dead quiet, 4th floor walkup. Stay here. Great city & apt

  • 5 of 5

From pickup by Viktor, my daughter and I had an absolutely fantastic time. St. Petersburg is Paris and Amsterdam combined, on Steroids! Apt is smack in the middle of everything. Washing machine always helpful. AC too. LCD TV but all stations in Russian. Wireless worked well for 6 days we were there, Comfortable beds, modernish kitchen. Back off Nevsky Prospekt, Left at the Burger King, can't get lost. Russians are friendly, walked around until 2:30 AM, never a problem. Public transportation for 2 to Peterhof and back $9 last Metro stop, 30 minute public bus. All on the Internet. Take the midnight cruise, see the bridges open, English one at nearest canal.

STAY HERE. VISIT ST PETERSBURG. YOU WILL LOVE IT. I WILL BE BACK!

Nevsky Prospect Apartment Advantages & Highlights

When you plan your trip here are some points that are hugely important in St Petersburg that need to be planned for: No matter whether you stay with me or elsewhere the points below need to be addressed.

MOST Important Point: This is the heart of the tourist district with two of the largest hotels in St Petersburg on the same block! The Raddison Hotel and the Nevsky Palace Hotel both right there! This area is SAFE, your not going to get Robbed in the day or night. Lots of Police here unlike anywhere else off of Nevsky Prospect where there are NO police! The safety aspect is paramount you really need to be aware of this........

Russia is the wild wild west in spite of what you read or hear! 6 Million People in St Petersburg and no lack of criminals or thieves! Very simple cheap hotels and cheap apartments are on the outskirts and your in danger as well as wasting a lot of time to arrive to the center where the site seeing is located! Careful is the word! I;m not just saying this to get you to stay with me! Its the TRUTH!

Apartment is two full bedrooms with Queen Beds in Both bedrooms, Nice Sheets and comforters, imported from USA! Super Furniture , Orthopedic Beds extreme high quality, Sofa Sleeper for 2 if needed:

Elevators in St Petersburg Nevsky Prospect district: Don't buy into the ploy apartment advertising Elevator service: When you see the elevator your not going to use it , even if it actually somehow miraculously working! Usually you find an elevator but it JUST broke Down claimed by the landlord! Elevators in St Petersburg only hold 1 Person and no luggage! NO Russians would get near an elevator in their building, they know better than to risk getting stuck in there and have to stand up for hours because your not going to be able to sit down! Worse no one cares your stuck there so its simply not worth the risk! Russians think why in the world did you use it! I'm not kidding about this!

High quality Towels to pamper yourself with after a HOT shower

Hot water is a PROBLEM IN St Petersburg and remember the City shuts down the city supplied hot water for two weeks every summer! But not problem my apartment has back up Tank for hot water just in case you need it. Nothing worse than a cold shower in Russia, you have no idea what an Ice Cold Shower feels like! Cold showers are one thing but water in St Petersburg is ICE COLD!

Nevsky 84 is in the Center of the action you don't have to travel and waste time getting there. Big time savings!

You get my St Petersburg Action list which is designed to save you a mountain of money and a double tourist sites what you will see in the same amount of time.

Supermarkets very close so you save on food and its not cheap to eat out in St Petersburg. My kitchen is fully stocked with all High Quality Cookwear, Pots, Pans, Strainers, Silver wear plates, glasses, Coffee Maker, Microwave, all you will need and not a bunch of beat up junk that got thrown in there!

Both of the most modern and ultra Super Malls are only a 5 minute walk: Nevsky Central And the Brand New Galleria You need something you will get it here lby Walking there!

I M P O R T A N T :::::: ::::: Nevsky is LOUD...(6 Lane Roadway) . But my apartment is quiet because its inset off of Nevsky in a courtyard and blocked by a building so there is NO noise! You can actually sleep at night. Whats that worth to you?

Air Conditioning is very important: Yes the temperature is nice is St Petersburg but believe me its HOT inside these buildings: No buildings have Central Ventilation so the air is usually stagnant. This makes it very uncomfortable to try to sleep. I have full Air Conditioning with Air Purification.....Clean air and perfect temperature set by you instead of the enviornment. I also have Air Exchanger so the air is exchanged every 2 Hours inside the unit. I don't know of a single other unit that has this incorporated into the apartment! Fresh Air = Good Sleep

Blinds to close out the light remember its light 20 Hours a day in St Petersburg from May to July! You can sleep!

Magnificient windows and lighting so you don't get that closed in, cramped feeling like 99% of the other rentals including hotels!

Walk out the door and 30 seconds later your arrive to the Bus Stop, Taxis Galore (But you need the Taxi Secrets featured in my insider List)

The metro (Subway) is 2 Minutes out the front door my the apartment and this is beyond important cause your going to use it!

Kitchen stocked correctly with very high quality cook wear not a bunch of scratched up cheap teflon pans burnt up! All needed appliance there: Washer There!

Airport Transfers No problem & Much cheaper than Airport Taxis!

Visa Registration we do it for you, why waste your time doing this its takes a 1 to 2 Days, let my staff do this for YOU!
