Kristine went out of her way to welcome us, as our flight arrived very late at night.
We loved the 'Man Cave' , it was a unique experience, even our Latvian family were delighted by the Bohemian decor, and the old city ambience.
Everyone wanted a 'sticky beak' as we say in Australia.
Fabulous location & very central.
Kristine was also a generous host, and made sure that we had some coffee and milk on arrival.
The beds were comfortable, everything clean and enough basics in cave to be able to make ourselves a meal & a cheese plate for visitors.
I agree with the previous reviewer who suggested bringing jumpers / jackets, as it can be cool in the cave - but not ever damp.
There were plenty of electric heaters around the place, and the lovely fire worked well, and certainly warmed the place up.
We loved the quirky lighting, a bit like staying in a night club - there were funny moments when searching for black clothes in a black suitcase in a dark corner required a degree of sixth sense.
There was also a caretaker upstairs, who helped us immediately when I managed to jam my key in the door lock.
We also liked the bathroom, it was fun, but did require some gymnastic abilities for hair washing. I also really appreciated that there were many toiletries available for showering etc.
We spent a whole week there, and loved it.
Many thanks to Kristine for sharing her Man Cave with us.
Cool cave, just like the pictures!
A little cold, and a little hard beds!
But fantastic location, and Kristine was very helpfull!
The Magic cave was exactly as described by the pictures. Wonderfull appartment, lovely decorated and with nice details and accessoires.
Perfectly located with pubs and stores in the neighborhood.
Thanks for hosting us, we will surely contact you for further trips!
We had the privilege of staying in the ManCave for two nights with my girlfriend. Kristine made us feel really welcome and provided us with all necessary information and supplies.
The property itself is quite stunning, has to be seen to be believed and is perfect if you're looking to spend some time in Riga with your special one or perhaps with a group of people. Whilst the place itself is huge and could probably house 7 or 8 people, we clearly saw the benefit of having the place to ourselves.
An unforgettable stay in a unique place in a stunning neighborhood and location. Would highly recommend.
We had a 3 day lovely trip to Riga. Kristine was very helpful and responsive to queries prior to our arrival and throughout our stay. The property is very special and the on-site descriptions accurate. Its spacious and dramatic. Probably the quirkiest property I've ever stayed in. Its an interesting experience to be in a home without any daylight - for me, I think a three night stay was enough and any longer I would be craving daylight. Having a full bath or shower a little of a challenge but it adds to the quirkiness.
Riga itself in a nice city and great for a short break. A trip to the seaside (20 mins by train) is well worth it too.
Highly recommended for a great few day retreat.
Kristine met us at the apartment and was very welcoming and friendly. The apartment is located in the old town, everything was walkable and was only a 2 minute walk to one of the main squares in Riga.
The cave itself was as shown in the pictures, it was a little hard to adjust to the lack of light but obviously we expected that because of it being a cave! We would recommend taking some jumpers with you, it is a little cold and damp in the cave. There wasn't enough hot water in the tank for both of us to take a shower so maybe bare that in mind too and make it short!
The apartment has a real novelty factor and Kristine's communication was fantastic all throughout, overall we would recommend Kristine's apartment!
This is such a special place to stay.
All communication before was smooth, easy and informative.
The place is absolutely stunning and unique. Everything you could possibly need is provided and thought about. The location is brilliant, just a short walk to the centre of the old city. Kristine was there to greet us and explain everything we needed to know.
It was a fabulous place to stay, completely recommended.
Kristine is a nice and helpful person. She answered my question so efficiency and even pick us up near the apartment when we got lost with the taxi driver. The location is excellent and just a minute by walk to the old town. The decoration in the apartment is very special and unique. It's a great experience to stay in this apartment. Highly recommend this apartment and Kristine to others.
My stay at the magic cave was, just as the name describes, magical!! I had the pleasure of meeting Kristine upon my arrival and she was more than accommodating and hospitable! The house looks just like the pictures and was such an interesting environment to stay in that really enhanced my time in Riga! A huge thank you to Kristine for putting so much work into this beautiful home!
Very good location near old town and political district. The basement is exactly what it looks like on the pictures. I only met Kristine briefly at the end of my stay. She has been very correct and helpful via phone and web though. Very clean, nice 'historical' place at top location. Excellent WiFi and no noise. Perfect as I was there for business and private reasons.
Ospite discreta, educata e si preoccupa sempre di non disturbare. E' stato un piacere ospitare lei e sua figlia.
kristine and her daughter are really nice!!!hosting them was a great experience for me!!
Kristine and her party prove to be a very good guests. As i was not able to see them at the departure time i was pleased to find later apartment left in clean and good order. I would recommend her as a great guest to anyone and hope to welcome her in Wroclaw again very soon.
great person, very nice and gentle. thalks for the CUP!
