Charming and cozy newly renovated apartment in Kumpula, one of the most beautiful districts in Helsinki. A quiet yet lively neighbourhood with picturesque old wooden houses surrounded by nature, a unique village atmosphere, yet not far from the city center and with good public transportation.

The space

The accomodation is in the basement of our semi-detached wooden house. It has its own entrance and facilities so it's basically like an independent apartment. In front of the entrance there is a garden where you can enjoy your morning coffee if the weather allows :)

The accomodation is newly and totally renovated with carefully chosen materials and decorations creating a charming, warm and relaxed atmosphere with a rustic touch.

The accomodation is perfect for a family, group of friends, couples or business travellers. There are two double beds and one smaller double bed so 5-6 persons will fit in and there is also a mattress for a seventh. We can also provide you with a travel cot for your baby (also ask for other child related equipments if needed).

The accomodation of 72,5 m2 consists of:
- fully equipped kitchen with cooker, oven, microwave, coffee maker, water boiler and toaster + washing machine and drier
- one big main room with a proper double bed (140 cm), a sofa / bed sofa that can be transformed into a double or single bed (140 cm / 75 cm, thinner mattress), a wardrobe, a desk with a big computer, WIFI and an electric piano
- one small dining room with table, sofa and chairs
- one alcove with a bed (120 cm) in connection with the dining room (the alcove is separated from rest of the room with a curtain)
- a bathroom with toilet and two sinks (please note; entrance to the bathroom is from the dining room which is connected to the alcove / the other bedroom)
- two showers and a big and unique handmade private sauna!

Guest access

You have access to all the facilities in the apartment except for a small storage space. You are also welcome to use every item and product in the apartment.
The small patio with table and chairs in the garden in front of the entrance is also for your use.

Interaction with guests

Me and my family live upstairs in the same house. Your own privacy will be guaranteed but I will be at your service if needed whenever I'm at home, otherwise by phone and e-mail. I will do my best to help you out with everything. I will also be pleased to answer any questions you may have before your arrival or when thinking of making a reservation.

Other things to note

The soundproofing is not the best in this old house so you might hear some sounds from our apartment upstairs.

Our neighbours next door have two cats that like to enjoy our garden, please don't let the cats enter the apartment.

We also have two turtles in the garden during the summer, they have an enclosure so you wont have to worry about them entering the apartment :)

Perfect place in Helsinki for people who like quiet stay at the apartments surrounded by nature. Our host was absolutely amazing - very kind, helpful, met us with such a great welcome. The apartments exceptionally clean, we got everything we needed for our comfortable stay.

We were staying for five days as two couples (one with an infant of 4 months), so we used both places to sleep. The rooms were tidy, cosy and the apartment was very well equipped. Olga provided us not only with various small items (e.g. shower gel, a glass of baby food and cookies), but also with hints about traveling in and around Helsinki and has been generally very helpful before and during our stay. Granted, the layout is not optimal, when both sleeping areas are used (the restroom is only accessible through the living room, adjacent to the second sleeping area) and the apartment is not that soundproof when compared to German houses (only mentioned for the sake of completeness – was only noticeable on rare instances), the newly installed sauna and the spacious garden make more than up for these minor drawbacks. The apartment is about 5 min by foot away from the university, and 5 more minutes to a large shopping mall (with two grocery stores) and the metro station. Another small grocery store, a takeaway pizzashop and a bus stop are even closer (about 2 mins by foot). In sum, Olga has been a most kind host to us that we gladly recommend to those coming to Helsinki.

We stayed for two nights at Olga's place. It is located in a quiet and very green residential area. The apartment is recently renovated, everything is made with love and very good taste. Own entrance into the private garden. Hosts live in the same building and are available for any help. A very nice natural waterside walking area is just a few minutes away by foot. Very recommended!

Tässä paikassa pääsee Kumpulan ihanuuden ytimeen ja maauimalakin on ihan lähellä! Asunto oli toimiva, siisti ja avautui ihanasti suoraan pihalle. Majoittaja asuu samassa talossa, joten yhteydenpito majoituksen aikanakin helppoa. Meillä ei ollut ongelmia. Lasten kanssa hyvä kohde, keittiö hyvin varusteltu ja voi pestä pyykkiä myös. Ainoa ongelma ehkä se, ettei tee mieli poistua ollenkaan Kumpulasta. Tulemme ehkä vielä uudestaan!

Hi! My name is Olga and I have lived in Helsinki my whole life. I have also spent one year in France. My husband Uula and I love travelling and meeting people and friends. We are also very devoted to our beautiful house that we just finished renovating. I have hosted people before in my previous apartment and now when we have a lovely house together we want to give others the opportunity to enjoy it as well. On our travels we use Airbnb as guests ourselves and have really enjoyed the personal touch and hospitality. We see hosting people as an opportunity to provide the same. We have put an effort in making the Airbnb apartment as nice as possible and we will do our best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Welcome!
