Very nice apartment, very nice contact, very clean, just great :) next time i visit Helsinki, i would like to stay there again :)
One thing, though: the location marked in the map isn't very precise.
We really enjoyed our stay. Location was great. The Tram stop was a block and 1/2 away in a large square. It took us into the heart of Helsinki. Got off at the Senate Square and Tourist Information was 1 block away.
Jari sent us excellent directions for finding her unit, the apt area of the rental is a little confusing but by following her instructions we easily found the rental. It was misting and almost dark when we arrived but she had turned on the lights for us which was a welcoming site.
The unit was very roomy with a larger living room area with a comfortable sectional. Kitchen and dining area was great. We had all the appliances we needed to cook a few meals.There are 2 bedrooms and one had a nice sized closet area. Bathroom with a shower also had a washer and a dryer . Both worked well. The sauna was small but functional and we enjoyed and conveniently located right off the bathroom with the shower.
In the large square where tram stopped there was a small grocery store with eggs, milk fruit etc. Next to the grocery store was a pub but no food. An eat in or take out pizza place was also located in the square.
Best of all Jari left us a wonderful package of chocolates. Yummy ! WE enjoyed.
Thanks for a great stay.
The apartment is in a fantastic location, literally a 3 minute walk from the starting location of Tram 4 which takes you downtown in 5 min. A nice quiet neighbourhood with little traffic in the evenings for those who like to stay in and enjoy a nice sauna in the evenings. The waterfront trail is a great place to run. About 3 km from the apartment and you can follow the road through market square and enjoy great views of the skyline. The apartment itself is nice and cozy. The owner was incredibly helpful and made sure that we were taken care of during our stay. The grocery store is right next to the tram stop and is ideal for picking up stuff to cook or to try some Finnish snacks and things. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Helsinki for any length of time. I would certainly stay again next time I visit.
A great place to be in Helsinki. A very calm surrounding even for finnland. A lovely furnished appartment with a Sauna. That's the location where you can relax. 100% recommendable. I will stay here again, if I visit Helsinki next time.
