One of three guest bedrooms in a relaxed family house in the countryside on the outskirts of Oulu. 12 minutes drive from the airport, 25 minutes from Oulu centre, a short walk to the beautiful Varjakka Harbour and swimming beach. Ideal for taking a relaxing break on a road trip from Helsinki to the North.

The space

The Nature Room is a spacious bedroom on the ground floor with a comfortable double bed and an old writing desk with drawers. The corner windows give a great view of our neighbours' horse - who is very gentle and friendly. Its the best place in the house for watching Northern Lights when they appear. It's called the Nature Room after the artwork on the lilac wall which is taken from a Finnish animal atlas.
There's plenty of space to add a single bed or floor mattresses for children.

Guest access

You'll get a key so that you can come and go at any time. The bathroom (toilet and sink room, to be accurate) near this room is the one that we usually use, but if we have guests, we swap to a different bathroom, so you can use it whenever. There is also a large shower room that you can use. There is plenty of parking space.

Interaction with guests

We work from home, so we are around most of the time and available to help out. We have two children and sometimes things get a bit noisy, but they are generally very well behaved. The benefit of this is that - if you're bringing kids with you - there's plenty of things to keep them entertained like the play house and sand pit in the garden and stacks of books in various languages.

Other things to note

YellowBerry House gets its name from the berry bushes in the yard. We have two pairs of sea buckthorn (tyrni) bushes that produce bright amber berries that are rich in vitamins, and our raspberries are not pink, but golden. My wife and I are artists and have a pretty relaxed approach to life. Guests are welcome to hang out as much as they like. We provide basic breakfast of porridge and coffee, Finnish-style.

my wife and I run a small dance company based in Oulu, and sometimes need temporary accommodation for our dancers. (Check out to see the kind of work we do) We also travel internationally for performances and workshops, AirBnB is usually our first port of call when travelling. I've stayed in brilliant AirBnB properties in Tokyo, Prague, Paris and Berlin, amongst others.
We have a pretty big house in the countryside and have renovated three bedrooms for visitors. Everybody is welcome.
