About this listing

The apartment is bright and quiet, only 30 mins to the city centre. Big kitchen, bedroom, living room, lots of books and a lovely view.

The space

The apartment is 52,5 m2, so there's lots of space. Every room has three big windows, which means that even during the dark Finnish winter months the rooms are bright. This is my own apartment, so I can recommend staying here with my own experience: a very calm and peaceful neighbourhood and house. Perfect for chilling out, reading, exploring Helsinki and so forth.

Guest access

The kitchen comes with a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, blender, espresso and water kettles, gas stove, electric oven and tea and coffee. There's also a dining table and a stereo to listen to some music or radio while cooking.

The bedroom has a double bed, with bed linen and towels included, a reading lamp and lots of closet space.

The living room has a tv and dvd player (lots of dvds, too), a desk, sofa and record player. There's wifi in the apartment.

The bathroom is quite small, but has everything needed: a hot shower, washing-machine, basin and a big mirror.

Interaction with guests

I won't be in the apartment when you stay there (I'm probably travelling!), so you'll have all the privacy you need. However, even if I'm abroad, you can always contact me by text message or email. I have friends living nearby, who can also help with emergency situations. If I cannot give you the keys personally, one of my friends will do that. I will leave detailed instructions about the flat and everything you need to know!

Other things to note

Since the building is located on a hill and there is no elevator, this apartment is unfortunately not suited for people with special needs.

The apartment is lovely and clean. It has got everything a person needs for holidays and more. I did not have any problem finding it, because Vappu's instruction are very good and you just can not get lost. I liked the neighborhood, it is very green and quiet. Vappu is very friendly, nice and helpful. Karmen

This is a nice apartment in Roihuvuori - a great location with an atmosphere somewhere between urban and suburban. It's a quiet area of blocks with a nice courtyard for the kids to play in. Plenty of little walks and the Japanese Garden nearby, and only a few minutes from the sea. The nearby restaurants and cafés are cheap and pretty good, and the buses to the Metro are frequent. The apartment is very cosy, clean, and quiet. We enjoyed staying there and felt at home immediately. We'd definitely stay here again.

Comfortable flat in a nice suburban area. Near a small forest, beach and grocery stores. 10-15 min walk to the nearest metro station. The metro to city center takes about 15 min.

She is the best Thank you :)

Staying at Vappu's was exactly what we wanted to experience: it is a peaceful and cosy place out of Helsinki that you can easily reach by public transport and after a short walk through the amazing woods of Helsinki. And when you're in, you feel fine and quiet, as there is everything you might need. Furthermore, Vappu is an excellent host, she gave us lots of advices on how to reach the house and move around the city, she also waited for our late arrival! We are grateful, and would definetely stay here again!

I'm a friendly postgraduate student living in Helsinki, Finland. I have lived in Scotland and Canada and am used to travelling and meeting people from all over the world. I prefer travelling with a low budget and an open mind, so that I can get to know local culture and people. Ecological values are also important to me.
