Vlada saved my entire shoot. My original location fell through the night before my shoot and Vlada went above and beyond to set me up at her home. I am SO glad she did because it was better than I could have hoped for. The home is stunning and the private beach is a slice of heaven. I am so grateful for all that she has done and could not recommend booking here more.

The house is beautifully organized and the owner Rick is just the greatest. He is very helpful and knows so much about production. He will inform you of all the necessary information in advance to help you out. Definitely, I would like to work here again with Rick :)
