Holiday Rental House
A beautiful, well-restored old country house-styled home in the Northern part of Helsinki. Peaceful and nice surroundings, with only 15 min from the airport. A large open veranda with grill, and a garden. Upright piano, fully-equipped kitchen, sauna. Family-friendly are with a next-door park with animals in the summer time. Playground, football pitch, etc. Super calm, but close to services. You could park your car in the yard. There's a but stop just around the corner, several buses stop there, that you can take either to the city center or the other way (Vantaa-Tikkurila) and also to the airport. Taxi from the airport costs only around 20-23 € and takes usually less than 15 minutes.

Un magnifique jardin (dans un quartier résidentiel arboré et calme) avec des arbres fruitiers, bien ensoleillé, à 20 minutes du Centre d'Helsinki et à 3 minutes des voies rapides qui entourent la ville et permettent de s'en échapper, c'est l'idéal. Pekka le propriétaire est charmant et très gentil, nous avons passé 10 jours de vacances inoubliables, la maison est grande et pratique avec un charme scandinave ancien qui en fait un cocon douillet. a bon entendeur...

We enjoyed the space and felt homely rather than a holiday let and everything we needed. loved hedgehogs in garden at night . bus stop around corner and shop 5 minutes walk.We preferred walking to station as getting train faster. all contact and arrangements went smoothly

My friends and I had lovely stay at this house. We enjoyed having the whole place to ourselves and we felt very much at home. There is a small grocery store just around the corner and a bus stop that makes it a really convenient spot. Unfortunately, we could not figure out how to turn on the sauna but otherwise it was a perfect stay!

It was certainly our pleasure to receive Kelsey and her friends in our house. The communication between us was easy and they treated our home with great respect. I'm still sorry that (while we were abroad at the time of their stay), I did not manage to send them instructions as for maneuvering the sauna, although I did try it (by asking our house caretaker come by, but he was unable to do it..). However, I'm glad they were happy about their stay in any case!

Despite the end of the Finnish holidays Pekka sought and found all excellent solutions to meet us in the most perfect conditions. Pekka has spent ample time to detail all the comfort he put at our disposal. The house is very comfortable and conform to its description. Access to the center of Helsinki is easy by bus (very close) or by train.
