The space

If you prefer the city area, love the sea view and parks but hate loud noises from the bars and traffic this is just right apartment for you.

At my apartment you will be so close to the real city center of Helsinki and will experience a true spirit of the City.

Within 900 meters you will find Uspenski Cathedral and right next to it are all the main tourist attractions. For example the Bridge of Love Locks, the Helsinki Sky Wheel, the Helsinki Fly Tour XD multi experience movie theater (flying experience over Helsinki), Allas Sea Pool Helsinki, the Market Square, The Presidential Palace, City Hall, The Old Market Hall, Helsinki Cathedral, the Helsinki City Museum and ferries to the Suomenlinna. All this are must-to-see as you visit in Helsinki. Right beside of these are the main shopping area and department stores of the city.

This apartment is typical modern and modest (MoMo) Finnish apartment from 80's. The floor plan is good and the apartment itself is very clean and well kept.

The apartment has two bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen, dining and bathroom with a Finnish Sauna and a separate toilet.

From the sauna and dining there is a direct access to the patio which is really nice, especially in summer time. You may take a swim at "mattolaituri" located right in front of my apartment and come back to the apartment for nice warming sauna like locals do : )

Kitchen is fully equipped with microwave oven, stove/oven, toaster, dishwasher and coffee machines.

There is a hair dryer, washing machine, clothes dryer, iron and a vacuum cleaner.

Baby/toddler items like a portable cot (with small blanket and pillow), high chair, step stool for toddlers, light buggies, few toys and potty are available if you need these (I keep these in my storage so please let me know if you wish to have them in to the apartment). These items are free of charge if your baby is included in your booking.

This apartment is perfect for a two persons who wish to sleep in separate bedrooms. Also if your family or friends are visiting with you while your rental period I have highly modular great quality beds and sofa beds for them to sleep in (but please do not invite overnight visitors more than I have beds for them and please note that parties and events are strictly forbidden at this apartment since I want to guarantee a good night sleep also for the neighbors). The rental agreement will be always made with one person who will have a full responsibility of ones quests. Sub-rental agreements with this person to the other persons are strictly forbidden.

For long term rental (rented with furniture) I am happy to give you a good offer.

Guest access

There is an 50 MB/s (also wireless) internet connection for free.
I got a private parking space for one car right in front of the apartment.
Tip! Practically all of the parking space at the city area is time limited or/and with fee. If you are arriving with a car or renting one while your stay you really need a private parking space.

Interaction with guests

Although I live in this apartment I will respect your privacy and won't be at the apartment same time with you. Help will always be available if you should need any assistance. I might need to come in to pick up some personal items but always with your permission : )

Other things to note

As you might know there are AirBnB haters around the world trying to block our home share community. So please, lets act nice, share our love and understanding to these guys and follow the house rules where ever we are : )
Arvoisat naapurit, mikäli asunnossa on yöaikaista meteliä, ilmoittakaa asiasta välittömästi soittamalla minulle. Pystyn puuttumaan vuokrasopimuksen vastaiseen toimintaan vain jos saan tiedon välittömästi. AirBNBn ehtojen mukaisesti häiriköivät henkilöt voidaan poistaa asunnosta ilman irtisanomisaikaa.
Please note that I am not trying to make a profit with my apartment, just to cover my expenses. All income after my expenses (like taxes) will be donated to well know world wide charity organisations like Unicef.

The Finns valuate their night time tranquility, especially in these most valuable areas like Katajanokka so please, you REALLY need to keep it quiet during 22:00-08:00. By discarding this one rule, according to AirBnB terms of service you have accepted, the rental agreement will be cancelled immediately.

Also what you are expected to do in most Finnish homes (mine included) is not to use shoes inside the apartment.

Jaro i is a great host, clear, detailed communication and the apartment worked really well for us. Quiet neighbors and peaceful location but short walk to tram or to town. Apartment had everything we needed. Hope to be back soon

Jari's place was fantastic. It's in a great location and was the perfect size for a group of 6 (and unlike other accommodation we had looked at provided individual beds split across 2 rooms). Jari is a great host responding promptly when we had issues and providing helpful advice for the duration of our trip.

Nice, comfortable place in a less touristy, quiet part of Helsinki. We stayed here for a conference at the Scandic Conference Center and it was perfect, about a 15m walk. Nice running/walking trail along the water there as well. Well stocked kitchen and a grocery store just around the block. Takes about a 20m walk to get to the harbor and the other big centers of the city but a tram stop is just down the street.

We really enjoyed our stay in Helsinki and felt like locals for three days! The girls loved the playground and playing with the local kids. Friendly, convenient and all very well organised. Great bars and eateries along sea walk. To be recommended.

Jari's apartment is wonderful - very family friendly, cosy yet spacious. If a family wants to share one room and have the aunt and gramdma in tow in the other room - there is plenty of space for that. Jari was very helpful with baby and toddler paraphernalia (cot, baby carriage, toddler stroller), and even had cute little dolls to welcome the children. Very well equipped for kids with toy box, and a lovely yard just outside. Well equipped kitchen too. Everything we needed was there. Jari was very very helpful throughout and before our stay. Easy to communicate. The location is perfect - just as described - about 15 mins super pleasant walk from the city centre you get the feeling you are in a village, with water all around. It's really rather nice, with such a place, not to live right in the center of things. I am sure I will want to stay at Jari's place again.

Jari's apartment is absolutely fantastic! Our first impression was bright, spacious, squeaky clean. From the flexible sleeping arrangements to the well-equipped kitchen, everything was set up for convenience. We appreciated the dishwasher, washer, and dryer during our two week stay, and we put the sauna to frequent use. The location was ideal as well; a quiet, oceanside neighborhood with a lovely park for morning walks. One morning we were joined by a family of swans with babies! The closest grocery store was just around the corner, right by the tram stop. The tram ride to the city center was less than 10 minutes. We could not have asked for a greater place to stay or a more kind and generous host than Jari. We are already looking forward to our next trip and another stay at our new Helsinki home!
