Description

The space

Beautiful authentic 1920's Cottage with private beach, large dock and big grass yard. Possibility to rent motor boat or light sailing boat.

Guest access

You can use sauna all day, we warm it normally around 5 pm. Lawn is ok for eg. little football game. Parking is about 50 meters from the house, if needed you can drive to the house to leave/pick up your stuff.

Interaction with guests

Our family might be staying in the main house within eye sight of the cottage and use the beach and sauna as well. We promise not to bother you. However we are happy to help you with house,sauna,grill facilities and guide you with nature related questions fishing, picking berries etc....

The neighbourhood

Malmsjö bay is very safe waterway since it is quite far (2nm) from open sea, it is also good for beginners in boating now rocks in the bay area. Our premise is part originally fisherman's cottage premise from 1850's. Nature is really beautiful and quit there is no car traffic sound, so you can hear birds flying ;-). In July you might sea some people in the opposite side of the bay since that is holiday for Finns.
The house is in really quiet environment, you can only hear, boards flying, waves hitting beach. Occasionally you here someone talking across the bay. Be careful with sound levels since water carries sound quite long distances.

Getting around

House is in the countryside so a car/bicycle is a must. If we stay at the house nearby loan/rent of car can be negotiated. We can also offer you ride to/from the city/airport if needed. Nearest bus stop is about 3 km from the villa.

Other things to note

There is running water in the house, but no shower. Sauna is available for use. Sauna is not in so good condition, but we use it. Shower possibilities in the main house. Inn the hallway/glass veranda there is a cabinet with green door, there you can find vacuum cleaner, same gaming devices and fishing gear.
In living room there is big white tiled stove/fire place which keeps house warm during winter and really cold days, be careful not to heat it during summer, since it stores heat for two days.
In the dining room there is smaller green tiled stove which keeps heat only for few hours so we recommend to use that in summer months.

Bobby and I we’re fortunate enough to spend almost 1 month staying at Ossi’s wonderful cottage. We came to Finland to shoot one documentary and on days off edit another. This month ended up being one of the most productive times in my life. So secluded from the distractions of the city yet only 40 minutes away from Helsinki with any technical products we may have needed. We fell into a ritual of early mornings, focused days, and relaxing evenings - the perfect combination for remaining zen with a large todo list. The first night Ossi cooked for me as I came in late with no chance to shop beforehand. He taught us the Finnish way of heating up the Sauna which quickly became a daily ritual. One day Ossi brought out his smoker and we smoked the best Salmon I’ve ever eaten. On another day Ossi took us on a boat ride showing us the Kalkstrand coast. I felt comfortable, accommodated, and inspired. Will definitely come back. Ossi is a friend and I feel so fortunate we choose his red cottage on the sea to stay in.

We really had a wonderful time. Everything was amazing and the villa was as beautiful as described at all the pictures. Tuoma's father took us on a boat ride which was a really one of the best experience. We surely come back as soon as possible.

My friend and I came here for our first time to Finland and after this great experience we will definitely be back! The location was even more stunning in person. The home was beautifully renovated with all amenities you would need (wifi, toilet, lots of outlets, tv, dishwasher, washing machine, etc.) but, it still maintained it's authentic rustic charm. This is truly an amazing place to go to get a traditional Finnish experience - sauna included :) - but, also have all of the necessities a hotel could offer. We ended up staying 3 days longer because this experience was magical! The beauty of the surrounding forest, blueberries you can pick outside of your door, fishing off the dock and swimming each day was more than we could have imagined! We can't wait to be back!

Tuomas otti yhteyttä etukäteen ja huolehti että pääsemme paikalle ja siellä on kaikki kunnossa. Mökki oli hienossa kunnossa ja siellä oli kaikki mitä tarvitsee ja vähän ylikin.
