Warm and inviting home run by people who obviously enjoy hosting guests. Visiting Homestay was like visiting relatives I just hadn't seen in awhile. Rick and Diga were such wonderful hosts that I extended a night and returned to Homestayfor my last night in Riga. Travelling as a single woman (who also happens to be gay), the friendliness and tolerance for differences demonstrated by all the guests and the hosts was a rare and welcomed experience.
The tram station is a 3 minute walk and Old Town is roughly a 15 minute tram ride from the house. In the opposite direction the "open air museum" is a 10 minute car ride, and there are several beaches to choose from within a 10 - 15 minute car ride as well.
