While we were initially quite concerned when we drove into a parking area with a crumbling wall and overgrown weeds, we were even more freaked out when we came to the very, very old staircase to the apartment building. But when we entered the apartment all our concerns subsided. The apartment has been remodeled and decorated in a lovely, modern style, with all the amenities we needed (though we never were able to light the stove without almost burning off our hands as there was only a small lighter to light the gas). The apartment was spacious and perfectly laid out. The location of this rental is ideal- just steps to Old Town Vilnius, and even closer to the historical fortress museum. Jurgita made it very easy to access the key and was available via phone and text throughout our visit. The only cons: the neighbors seem to be out at all hours of the night- talking under the windows (the first evening it was warm so we had to leave them open), the church clock chimes about 30 times every morning at 7:45 am (no idea why!), and there is construction going on outside the building which was noisy. I think some ear plugs would have been good to have if it had stayed warm at night-but we closed the windows after our first noisy night. We loved Lithuania and hope to return someday soon.
We loved staying in Jurgita's amazing apartment. We were three adults and two small children, ages 2 and 4. Jurgita was very accommodating to the children, as she had a crib for our 2-year-old and lots of toys for them to play with. Her apartment is incredibly well designed with beautiful furnishings and all the conveniences one could want. She was really helpful and available for any questions we had. The apartment was in a great location, had parking, fast wifi, and even a washer and dryer. We loved it so much that we'd love to come back and stay for longer in the future :)
A very well appointed flat with a great lay out that is just five minutes walk from the old town attractions, restaurants and shops.. The flat also benefits from having a large balcony which is perfect for sunnier days.
First of all Jurgita organized a pick up from the airport - awesome... albeit when dropped off at the barrier to the block it was a little confusing as to where the property was, after a quick phone call, we were soon shown by her assistant to a secure entrance, up a quaint internal staircase and then 'wow' we walked into the stunning apartment...
There was even freshly cooked delicious bread waiting for us on the kitchen island!!!
Toys put out for my daughter, firewood stacked for the fire... Then, just a stone's throw around the corner 'the old town' in all it's glory.
Thank you Jurgita - A stunning apartment, a stunning town, a great New Years - and boy... I defy anyone to go to a city where the NYE's fireworks are better - go and you'll see what I mean!!!!!! Quite simply, a great stay - 10/10!
