About Judith, London

Judith has a passion for interior and design of a luxurious quality, where there is no compromise. Travelling throughout the world and discovering Liepaja, located on the beautiful Baltic Coast line was a dream come true. This love of Latvia brought about the opportunity to create stunning high standard apartments where discerning travellers can have the opportunity to experience Latvia as well as have the comforts of 'home'.

Why Judith, London chose Europe

Judith and Ashley purchased two apartments and made them into one large, three bedroom apartment. It is in the heart of the old town of Liepaja and across the road is the canal and Liepaja Yacht Club. Next door is the newly build Great Amber Concert Hall.

The apartment is filled with light - from the north and south and gives a beautiful sense of calm and tranquility. The four storey Russian style building is soon to undergo a transformation of the exterior and interior. Entering the stunning apartment is like walking from Russian soviet time, through a time warp into a contemporary, luxury interior. Like Latvia, it is full of contrasts. This is what is so special about this beautiful town, on the beautiful Baltic coast, sandwiched between Estonia to the north and Lithuania to the south.

What makes this apartment unique

Large new interior, ideal for people who love high-tech gadgets, such as remote controlled blinds (shades) and a selection of light mood selections. You can relax on the wonderful Italian leather couches and watch the huge Full HD TV with surround sound cinema experience, or listen to music in any of the bedrooms. Each bedroom is equipped with DVD players and audio docking systems of the highest quality. Ample dining room sits 8 people and each bedroom has its own DVD players. HD channels and Blu-Ray movies are available for the home cinema. A selection of DVDs, Blu-Ray and CDs are available also.

My stay in liepaja was great

  • 5 of 5

Was a perfect place to visit. Calm city and beach. The beach was as long as the eye could see, and almost no turists.!

Nice place for your wallet, and the trip to Karosta with the ghost of the old cccp stil hanging around made it complete.

The host was also exellent.

The flat was over the top regardig to all the facilities.

High tech luxury in Liepaja, Latvia

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with five friends in a really sophisticated,high tech apartment in a Soviet-era building in Liepaja on Latvia's Baltic Coast, early in Spring 2010. The owners have created a really unique experience for their guests and work extremely hard to ensure that your every need is met.

The 'all-singing, all-dancing' shower in the Master ensuite is impressive. With a light-show, music and every concievable computerised programme ranging from a Scottish mist to full blast downpour!

The apartment is equipped with a 'Home Cinema' complete with an eclectic range of Blu-Ray DVDs, 3-D films and Satellite TV which you watch on a giant screen complemented by an superb sound system. The guest bedrooms each have their own I-pod docking station and TV on which to watch DVD's.

Lots of attention to detail has been paid to making sure that a touch of luxury awaits you in Liepaja, which is a really interesting seaside city with a fascinating past, great beaches and a musical heritage well-worth exploring. This apartment is in an ideal location near the canal and promenade.

The only down-side is the entrance to the building, since this does not reflect the luxury and style which awaits within but the owners are actively seeking a resolution to this.

Wonderful luxurious apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this luxury apartment with 3 friends for 1 week at the end of August 2009. It was an excellent place to stay and it is in the very heart of lovely Liepaja. The nice seaside park and the baltic coast are only a 10 minute walk away.

The property was very clean and well equipped. We were made very welcome on arrival and some food items were supplied to get us off to a good start.

There are plenty of good restaurants nearby. Our favourite was the Maja Restaurant.

Lukseriøs og veldig smakfullt. Høy standard.

  • 5 of 5

Leiligheten ligger i et fint område ved kanalen. Gangavstand til en stor Rimibutikk med stort utvalg. I tilknytning til denne er det flere hyggelige butikker å stikke innom. Leiligheten er veldig fin. Store flotte soverom med høy standard. Flott stue med der det er hyggelig å sette seg ned etter en opplevelsesrik dag. Det er flere gode restauranter i gangavstand. Vi fikk anbefalinger fra Judith og alle falt i smak. Utleier var veldig behjelpelig i alle henseender. Det gjorde at vi fikk mange gode opplevelser. I tillegg til at det er en flott leilighet vil jeg fremheve at Judith skaffet mye nyttig informasjon i forkant og under oppholdet. Vi følte oss veldig godt ivaretatt.

Vi benyttet ofte en veldig fin sykkelsti fra leiligheten og til stranden. I nærheten av stranden er det en utrolig fin park. Der trivdes vi.Byen er koselig og det er veldig rent

over alt. Hyggelig sted å være.
