My husband and I loved the 4 days we spent with Diga and Rick in June 2014 . The house is beautiful and set in a large garden district so it's quiet and peaceful and the short tram ride into town gave us charming overview of the Latvian capital. Rick really goes all out for breakfast and there are always... More

Me and my husband are doctors from India. We visited Riga for a medical conference. I am very glad that my husband arranged for us to stay with Diga and Ric. He read some fabulous reviews on Tripadvisor. Homestay turned out to be our most delightful experience in Riga. We were warmly welcomed by Ric and Diga to their pretty... More

Everything and more is true about staying with our incredibly lovely hosts Diga and Ric at the Homestay. When we arrived late on a Friday night we were charmed by our spacious, and beautifully appointed and individually outfitted room: A nice, big and comfy bed, a huge day bed, dresser, wardrobe and a little quaint table for two. The room... More

Overall-good experience. Absolutely beautiful house and very helpful once I was there. However, service when I was booking/planning was less than great. Seemed like they didn't really want guests at all. Long delay in responding to emails. Phone number and email address from site didn't work, etc. But was I was there, very hospitable and helpful environment. Another minus-it's not... More

Had we gone to an ordinary hotel, we wouldn't have learned half as much about Riga as we did by staying with Ric and Diga. Warm, hospitable, helpful - it was like visiting an aunt and uncle, but without the familial obligations. Thanks to our hosts, we left feeling like we'd got a sense of the history, culture and values... More

As a family of 4 we spent 4 nights at homestay, and found it very welcoming and comfortable. The hosts went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed, and the rooms were simply gorgeous- the adjoining rooms are great for families. Lovely breakfasts and friendly pets. 30mins by tram out of town, it has a lovely... More

Situated in a beautiful area a short cheap and easy tram ride from the beautiful town centre of Riga, be careful not to confuse the district and actual park both named Mezaparks when getting off at the right tram stop. The place was lovely, very friendly people, I learnt a lot about Latvia and its history and culture in the... More

We stay at Homestay for 8 days, through the week of the Latvian Cultural Festival. Ric and Diga welcomed us warmly and opened up their entire house for our use. Sampling wine & cheese on the patio was nice. Ric was always up early to prepare a custom breakfast for quite the group of us. Both Ric and Diga were... More

Before I went, I was having a bit of hesitation too myself, whether staying in a B&B called "homestay" will be of much fun. That doubt vanishes the moment I walked in. It's located in a beautiful park with forest, lake and beach. It has large and clean rooms. Diga the hostess is extremely helpful in giving us advices on... More

Thanks to RIck and Diga we had a fabulous stay in RIga. Through them we were able to see more than just the tourist highlights and gain some insight into Latvian life and geopolitics. The accommodation and breakfast was excellent and the efforts that both hosts go to make the stay in RIga something to remember. Enjoyed the walk around... More
