Our grandmother’s (we call her “Mo”) house is located in a seaside resort town Palanga on the west coast of Lithuania, well known for its lively spirit, clean sea and pristine beaches.
The wooden house is over 100 years old and represents an authentic architectural style typical of Palanga. To better accomodate our guests, its 4 rooms (accomodating 2 to 4 people each) were recently renovated – taking care to retain the house spirit and historical context.
There is a shared shower and toilet inside, and another toilet in the summer house outside. The summer house also has fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, two tables and plenty of chairs which can be also taken outside.
The location is very central, just off the popular pedestrian street Basanaviciaus which is full of restaurants and bars, and close to the main Vytautas street. It’s within minutes of walking from the best white-sand beaches, local amenities & most sightseeing, including parks, museums and the local market (for more tips and suggestions, see our guidebook).
The place has good connections and is easily reached by both public and private transport. The main bus station is 20 min away by foot, the closest train station is Kretinga (10km) and Klaipėda (25 km), the main port city. Closest International airports: Palanga/Klaipėda PLQ 7km, Kaunas KUN 245km, Riga RIX 265km.
Despite central location, the place is quiet and peaceful.
There’s a beautiful garden, ladden with apple trees and tended flowers where you can relax and enjoy lazy afternoons. The summer kitchen is basically equipped, and there as well is a small grill. There is a shared combined toilet and shower in the house, as well as washer sink and another toilet outside.
If you arrive by car, the safe parking is free of charge.
Interaction with Guests
There is someone from the family to meet you and show around. Our family is rotating through the summer, and while the younger generation can speak several foreign languages, out parents only speak Lithuanian and Russian. But don't worry - they will be able to communicate the important points, and if needs be we can aways help them via phone!
From time to time, we love gathering in the garden and having a healthy lunch together with some friends or guests. House is traveler and animals friendly, comfortable and safe place to rest. We are looking forward to accommodating you throughout summer and beyond.

Other Things to Note
Note that there is one toilet/shower inside the house shared by all guests. There is another sink outside, and second toilet in the kitchen house.
Grandma who used to own this house for decades, has recently passed away so it's the next generation that is looking after it. We live downstairs, while the four available rooms are all upstairs and have a separate entrance, plus a set of keys each. In summer (June-August), there always is someone from the family to meet you and show around.
The clean bedding and towels are provided.
You are free to come and go any time between check-in and check-out (both at 12 am), but common sense applies - there may be other people renting rooms and you are expected to respect their privacy, keeping the noise down from 10/11pm. Guests are allowed during the daytime.
As there is only one shower on the floor, please try to minimise your showering time during busiest morning hours as to allow other guests to be able to use it.
Liebe Aiste, vielen Dank für Eure Gastfreundschaft und die schönen Tage bei Euch! Obwohl Palanga wirklich sehr touristisch geprägt ist und im Sommer vor Menschen überläuft, findet man hier Ruhe und echte litauische Gastfreundschaft. Das Haus ist sehr ursprünglich und typisch. Die Einrichtung ist zweckmäßig und ordentlich. Obwohl wir uns das kleine Bad mit den anderen Gästen geteilt haben, war alles stresslos und sauber. Der Garten und das Gartenhaus mit der Küche stehen den Gästen offen. Die Gastgeber waren sehr herzlich und um unser Wohl bemüht. Fazit: sehr empfehlenswert! Liebe Grüße Miriam, Ilona & Lara
Had a great time in Palanga. This place is about a block or so from the Main Street with all the restaurants which lead directly to the beach! Everything is in walking distance. Aiste's parents are great- very hospitable and caring people. We arrived by taxi at 12:30-1am and they were waiting at the door to greet us! The place is very clean, the beds are comfortable and the rooms are big.
We had a lovely stay. Beds were comfortable and the house is very close to the beach on a quiet road. Aistes parents were lovely and very accommodating although speaking mostly Lithuanian.
Excellent séjour et accueil très chaleureux par Aiste, son mari et son père dans cette maison familiale. Hébergement idéalement placée pour l'accès à la plage et la zone touristique de Palanga.
Our five-day stay with Aiste and her parents was truly wonderful. We were met with an exceptional friendlyness and warmth that touched us, and made this our favourite place to stay for our two-week Lithuanian holiday. The garden is also truly wonderful, and a perfect place to relax, in short but safe distance from the main street. So although the rooms are basic, they are clean and comfortable. And imagine getting freshly ironed bedsheets made of nice, thick cotton!
The shared bathroom was also nice and newly renovated.
We highly recommend this place, and we'd love to come back!
Aiste was very helpful, and although she could not be there when we checked in her parents were there to help us. We found them to be lovely people and very accommodating. The neighbourhood is safe and very close to the main part of town. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying with Aiste/her family.
I saw Aiste only after some days and for a couple of minutes. But here parents are amazing and the host is wonderful. Location is very good - near the sea, near the main tourist street and not so far from main street of Palanga. Me and my family will recommend host for our friends.
