Humble Beginnings

Shartava Street in Batumi - 2012

In 2012 our founder came from Austin Texas to Batumi for a short vacation. He quickly fell in love with the vibrant culture and community. David was a computer programmer and owner of an IT company with offices in Texas and Ukraine. But he had ambitions to exit that business and start a new chapter in life.

By 2013 his short vacation had turned into a full year of living in Batumi and testing a few business ideas with a small clothing boutique and a crypto currency startup. But it did not take long to realize real estate and tourism were more attractive.

Investing In Real Estate In Batumi

David spent 2014 to 2016 putting together a team of expert designers, contractors, and craftsmen and honing the skills needed to turn black frame real estate in Batumi into incredible works of art.

The early days taught many good lessons. During these times we learned what works and what does not work when it comes to vacation rental properties. Our experience finishing and managing hundreds of properties helped us become the #1 leading rental property manager in the entire region.

Today, we manage 90% of the most profitable properties in Batumi.

In 2017 we continued finishing black frame properties for ourselves and our clients. We named our business Batumi Paradise and opened a small office with 6 employees on Luka Asatiani Street.

By 2018 we had grown to over 30 full-time staff members and we expanded to our current office on Gorgasali Street. And we also became the top rated rental management company on Airbnb, Booking.com, and many other booking sites.

By the end of 2018 we already had over 2000 perfect 5-star guest reviews and we operated 10 out of 10 of the most profitable apartments in Batumi.

2019 brought some major changes to our business. We merged Batumi Paradise and our construction company, Paradise Building Company, into one big business. And we re-named it Ruebush Hospitality Group.

Along with our new brand and a lot more amazing people on our team, we built Seagull Beachfront Hotel and we started construction of Ruebush Gardens Hotel.

By the end of 2019 we were the top real estate company in Batumi specializing in turning black frame properties into successful vacation rentals, and we were developing our own hotel brands.

Blue Elephant Breakfast Cafe In Batumi

In 2020 and 2021, for some reason the entire world decided to take a break from progress and work. But we did not let that stand in our way.

We continued to construct our hotels, we continued to keep our properties occupied at nearly 90% throughout the years, and we opened Blue Elephant Breakfast Cafe and expanded Popeye Craft Bar.

Even though 2020 and 2021 were difficult years, we somehow managed to not only survive, but to grow.
