We stayed 4 nights at Auri's cottage. We enjoyed the great view, the proximity to Rovaniemi and the sauna. When we rented the cottage, we assumed that we would be able to cook at the cottage which is partly true since there is a microwave oven, a coffee maker and a small fridge. But there is no stove. We should have checked it better. It is our own fault. But without a stove you become very creative so everything went well. We used the sauna which was great. We didn't had the chance of meeting Auri but Auri's mother was there to greet us even though we arrived late 23:00.She was very nice to us and even offered us some food and hot beverages!! Thank you Kirsikka! Nice little cottage with a great view on the lake!

The best host in the world! Auri's mother Kirsikka took us on a boat ride, helped us with the fire for our sausages and offered us a relaxing sauna at the end of the day! She was lovely and made us feel home many, many kilometres from our actual home. A great experience!

We had a wonderful time at Auri's place. The house is located in a very beautiful setting in immediate proximity to a lake. Her parents, who stayed close by, we very hospitable and caring. They even invited us for dinner with a selection of traditional local snacks. There is also a lot to do and see nearby (polar circle, Santa Claus Village, etc.). You also have access to a boat anf fishing. We can recommend it.

我一直非常向往芬兰的森林、湖泊、桑拿、永不下沉的太阳和仲夏的狂欢,非常感谢房东的小木屋圆了我的一个芬兰梦!当我们从35的成都来到只有20的罗瓦涅米时,真的体会到有种别样的夏天叫做芬兰。小木屋隐藏在森林湖泊间,我们穿梭林间,如同森林里的小矮人,还与两只2只可爱的糜鹿不期而遇。小木屋如同童话中森林精灵的家,全木结构,推门进去全是森林的味道。此时的罗瓦涅米一天24小时清亮如白日,金色落日就这样一直停在森林湖泊尽头的天际,仿佛时光停滞,任人摆拍。桑拿是芬兰的国粹,到了芬兰不蒸桑拿,就像到了成都不吃火锅一样奇怪。小木屋里的桑拿房让我们体验到了100%绝对正宗的芬兰桑拿。半夜零点,在白夜的召唤下,我们在接近80的桑拿房里蒸得浑身通红,这时来到湖边将冒着热汽的身体投入到清凉的湖水的那一瞬间,仿佛听得到皮肤发出舒服的叹息声。我们整日在林中漫步,在湖中泛舟,在岸边烧烤,边蒸边海聊,下湖戏水,就是舍不得入睡,这里真的是越夜越美丽! 非常棒的民宿! 满满的的惊喜和意外!非常感谢房东的悉心接待,特意委托朋友开车来酒店接我们,路上专门带我们去熟悉附近的超市、公交站等,并作了详细的房屋使用介绍,为我们安排回程的出租车,还为我们准备了新鲜的水果。总之这是一次非常美好的居住体验!超级推荐朋友们也来感受感受。

I am a finnish 29 year old world traveller currenly living in California with my husband. I have a passion for traveling and discovering new cultures. I have lived in 9 countries so far and our journey is just in the beginning. My parents with who'm I rent out our summer cottage share the same passion for traveling and cultures, so Airbnb is just the right place for us to share this passion with others and meet like-minded people.
