  • Description


    We are a family of 3 women - Ingrid [ my mom], Edīte [ me] and Gabriela [ my daughter]. We are both working adults, splitting our lives between our flats in Riga and our house by the beach.

    Our property on the beach is rather large and has been in our family over 20 years now. We have a seperate guest house with sauna, which we have been renting out during summer, to help us with some of the property managment costs.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I work in events managment, so summer is very much my busy time - I attend a lot of festivals and organize some too. We are well traveled, multi-lingual family. I myself have lived abroad for more than 8 years and we are active in another rental community.

  • Help


    We are looking for a skilled person or two to help us with general property maintenance before summer season approaches. We need to rebuild the fence, plant some grass, tidy some branches, etc. Depending on the time you come, different needs might be a priority. During June-August, I would appriciate some help with my 3 year old daughter, as I can work from home, but need someone to take care of her while I work.
