A PIECE OF HI-STORY
In the interior we aimed to preserve the authentic elements (parquet floors, fireplace, wooden wall panels), combining them with minimalist Scandinavian influence.
We built the space that we would like to call our home and that meets the needs of student living.

Short - term contracts.
No need to sign a year-long contract and pay for the months when you are not there or risk losing your security deposit.
Our tenants are mostly short-term international students who come to Riga for an exchange program for 1 or 2 semesters.
The minimum rent period is 1 September - 31 January or 1 February - 30 June. You can move in earlier or stay longer if you wish. Preference will be given to tenants who choose to rent for 2 semesters.
Your flatmates will be students like you from all over the world, who come to Riga to study for their degree or on an Erasmus exchange programme.
We aim to select people from as many different countries as possible to ensure that you will get a truly international experience, learn new languages and get to know other cultures. We try to avoid having one nationality prevailing for reasons of inclusion and better shared living experience.
> Terbatas Street is one of the most popular promenades in Riga - great for shopping, eating and drinking out.
>10 minutes walking distance from the Old Town.
> Well connected to public transport links and a bike path.
Weekly cleaning of the common areas.
Even though you will be expected to upkeep your living space, you will not have to worry about scrubbing the shower, the kitchen sink or other nasty places, as our dedicated cleaning-lady will take care of them on a weekly basis.
Plan your budget with a peace of mind.
The fixed monthly rent price covers all costs: water, electricity, heating, internet, TV and weekly cleaning of the common areas.
There are no hidden costs, no agency fees.
If you did not bring your own bedding, you can rent a set from us. The bedding set includes a duvet, pillow, duvet cover, pillow cover, bedsheet and 1 towel. You yourself will be responsible for washing it as often as necessary.

OUR TENANTS SAY
"I came to Latvia for the first time on my Erasmus exchange and the apartment was the perfect fit. You live with other exchange students, the place is modern and spacious with great space in the living room for doing things with your flatmates and having friends over. The location is also perfect being walking distance away from everything that's important. The landlord is extremely helpful and very professional. I highly recommend staying here."
"Great apartment, clean, with great open spaces. The room (at least for mine) is spacious and comfortable!
The location is great, close to Old Town and with great access to a range of public transports.
The kitchen and the living room have an appropriate size.
Very good apartment."

"I moved in Terbatas during corona situation started and Zanete was really accommodating with me. I had such a great time here in Latvia and the flat was very nice : modern, luminous and clean. We had a nice time with the neighbors upstairs also. Comparing to others flats i saw in Riga, it is one of the best conditions!"
- Marie from France
"For my Erasmus Semester 2020 I contacted Zanete one week before moving in and she organized everything quickly and well. In the flat I immediately felt comfortable and at home for the following 5 month. Me and my flatmates had a lot of fun nights in our kitchen and a lot of movie nights at the couch with the huge tv!"
- Maja from Germany
"I moved to Riga for my Erasmus in January 2020. Of all the owners I contacted for accommodation, zanete was the kindest, most organized and quickest I could find. The apartment in the center of Riga is very spacious and has a wonderful kitchen where I shared many dinners with my super nice roommates. The organization of the bathroom with two showers and two toilets also worked so well that no one ever had to wait for his turn. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I recommend this apartment to anyone looking for accommodation to spend their Erasmus in Riga."
