About Nadya Shorrock

My name is Nadya and I´m 36 years old living in Sydney, Australia. My husband, the interior designer and I had renovated our apartment in St. Petersburg on Dec, 2009. Since then we moved to live and work in United Kingdom and eventually have immigrated to Australia. We take pride in our properties and are responsive to any of our renters needs. Now my mother, the key holder is taking care of our apartment. Since she is local, she deal with our guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. Our properties are fully furnished and have all the amenities of home!

Nadya Shorrock purchased this apartment in 1999

Guestbook comments from the owner

Highly recommended

Hi from Germany,

we stayed in this nice appartment for the New Year's celebration for 10 days. It is located in a lively district and we were able to discover the downtown by walk, although the metro and bus stops are just along the street. Inside it is really spacious, clean, quiet, the kitchen is fully equipped.The owners provided us with good advices about the sightseeings and local matters we were interested in, they stayed in touch with us during whole stay and were friendly and responsible, the deposit for the flat has been returned to us the very next day after our departure ( they were ready to return it the same day but we didn't have time for it before our morning flight back.)

We highly recommend this cozy appartment to people travelling to St. Petersburg, thanks to finding it we were relaxed and enjoyed our trip. Should be wonderful to stay there during the summer time, as the view from the hall windows are going straight to the Neva river and even when the bridges up you should be able to walk back to the flat as it is in center. Totally recommended!

Thank you one more time Nadia, Marc and Evgenia!

Good holiday in St. Petersburg

  • 4 of 5

We are stayed at this apartment with our two sons (17, 13) for just ten days in August 2012. The apartment is spacious. The owner was friendly and responsive to questions before and during our rental. We stay there again if we are travelling through.

A very comfortable place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

An excellent experience from the moment I enquired about the availability.

This apartment was exactly what we were looking for. It was in a very desirable location, clean and spacious. The natural light and view was wonderful. Close to transportation and within walking distance of most of the historic city sites. Nadya and Mama Zenya were very considerate, friendly and helpful. The booking and check in processes were pain free. Excellent customer service. Nadya even arranged for a taxi to pick us up at 5am to make our early morning flight along with the few other transfers during our stay to Petergoff and Tzarskoe Selo for 6 of us, at a reasonable price.

The apartment itself was gorgeous with all the comforts of home. In some ways I felt like we didn't take enough advantage of the kitchen, washing machine and infrared sauna but for a group of six people, renting an apartment where we had a common area was a great thing to do. In terms of cost, I found it very reasonable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there & would recommend as an excellent experience.

Would definitely stay there again. Perfect for a city vacation.

A good place to stay in St. Petersburg

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as described, though the building itself was somewhat run down. The elevator was very old and noisy, so we always walked up. Everything was clean and worked well, and our landlady was easily available and very helpful. She spoke only Russian, but her daughter in London was easy to contact and took excellent care of all details. For example, she found a very safe and reliable driver to take us around to some of the more distant sites, as well as to and from the airport.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to explore this beautiful foreign city. Some knowledge of Russian is a major advantage, as few people speak English or French.

Owner's Response: Steve and family, Thank you for the kind words. It is always special when we receive such positive reviews. The building itself is on the state heritage historic buildings register. You will have seen the brass plaque outside the main entrance. It was once home to the main architect of St. Petersburg. Although it is a great honour to live and stay in such a historic building. It also means that the common areas and external fascias have to be renovated to exacting and original specifications. The State Heritage Council have undertaken it on themselves to ensure that the restorations are carried out precisely to these specifications. The latest news is that the building is on the program for this year and work is due to commence late 2012. So when you return to stay with us again next year, you will experience the glorious restoration for yourselves. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and you are always welcome. Best regards, Nadya

We had a wonderful time and the apartment was perfect for the four of us to have some privacy and relax after walking to see the nearby sights all day. Zenya the grandmother is just a peach and made sure we were comfortable and knew how to use the apartment amenities. Transportation arrangements were made for us to and from the airport and to sight see one day with Alex who was always prompt and congenial. Coffee shops nearby, small grocery stores right outside and excellent restaurants for the evening meal. We ate at Serafino right down the street. Everything is close enough walking that my 11 and 12 year old had no complaints to be out and about. Thank you Nadya!

very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

Excellent appartment:

It is very well located not far from the center and very close to the metro station (this is important in St Petresburg because the stations are far from the others).

It is modern and clean inside, on the 6th floor with a lift.

There are plenty shops around opened 24H.

The accomodation organised concerning the taxis from and to the airport have been efficient and for a good price.

I recommand to stay in this appartment in St-Petersburg, well located and very convenient.

Central apartment in the heart of the city overlooking a beautiful tree lined boulevard, which runs down to the river Neva. The boulevard is flanked by restaurants, bars and convenience stores. It is in the heart of the embassy area with its many tree lined pedestrian boulevards and close to Tauride Garden, Neva, Fontanka water way and the sights of St. Petersburg are all within easy walking distance. The tube station is close to hands but not really required as this property is within close walking distance to all the main architectural delight which St. Petersburg has to offer. We are located in the historic city centre. Choosing to stay with us, you will extricate your self from the noise and uproar of Nevsky Prospekt, the endless stream of people who always tend to the main road of the city, the area where it is difficult to find good grocery stores nearby. For these qualities, our area was chosen by numerous consulates and appear to have quieter, more peaceful and secure living.
