Lue talon ohjekirja viimeistään saapuessasi kohteeseen. Se löytyy Airbnb sivuiltani sekä kohteen ulko-ovesta.

Kenkien käyttö ja tupakointi kielletty sisällä. Mikäli haluat tupakoida, toimitamme tuhkakupin ulkopöydälle.

Älä pidä hämärään aikaan ovea tai isoja ikkunoita auki jos sinulla on valot päällä, koska hyttyset tulevat sisään. Makuuparven ikkunaa voit sen sijaan pitää auki milloin tahansa koska siinä on hyttysverkko.

Vierailija siivoaa omat jälkensä ennen uloskirjautumista ja jättää asunnon siihen kuntoon kuin se oli vierailun alettua. Mikäli et jostain syystä halua siivota jälkiäsi, voit maksaa 20 euron siivousmaksun, kiitos.


Please read the house manual at the latest when you arrive at the destination. You can find it on Airbnb from my website and from the front door.

Use of the shoes and smoking inside is forbidden. If you want smoke, we will deliver the ashtray on outside table.

Do not leave the door or big windows open in the evening (dusk time of day) if you have the lights on; mosquitoes are coming in. Instead, you can keep open loft's window all the time because there is mosquitoes net.

The visitor cleans up before checkout and leaves the apartment in that condition as it was when the visit began. If you don't want to clean up for some reasons you can pay an cleaning fee of 20 euros, thank you.

A really nice little cottage. ❤️ The place was just the right size for the three of us. Quality-price ratio was absolutely on point!

Sami’s house is a good place to be during your stay in Turku. The house itself is equipped with everything a traveler could only wish about, while hitting the road. Moreover, it is cozy and tidy within a close proximity to the town center and some of the most popular tourist places to visit. The house mentioned is even greater taking into account its hosts. If you need a peace of mind and a proper rest, you can be sure that you’ll get it. If, on the contrary, you want to have a small chatter or a piece of advice, the lovely owners can provide you with this as well. Highly recommended place to stay and people to meet with.

Very nice little cottage in leafy neighbourhood, the town centre is a lovely short walk away along Turku's river. Sami was a very accommodating and helpful host and we very much enjoyed our stay.

This guest house is located in a calm district of Turku and at the same time not far from the city center and the bus station (linja-autoasema). As we travelled by bus, this was important to us. The house itself is very cosy and comfortable to live in. All the basics needed are provided. Sami and his wife are very friendly, reliable and helpful. They provided good tips about what to do in Turku. We enjoyed our time in Turku and would recommend the guest house to others.

This offer is a nice little place for guests who like a silent and peaceful surrounding. The cozy finish looking flat provides you with the basics just like a typical vacation home. Getting to Turku city is easy and quick to manage by foot. As mentioned in other reviews the bathroom is quite small, so over 1,80m or if you are heavier to kidnap it won't be fun, sorry. Sami and his wife are very friendly and easy going. We enjoyed the stay. Just a little thing for special persons: There is a kind of sweat-proved layers under the top sheet on the Mattress. As there is no real bed or construction where the mattress is laying on, I can understand the need of this plasticy sheet ( as the mattress would start to mold) but it makes it uncomfortable for persons who like a more cooler while sleeping.

Response from Sami:
Thank you for your constructive feedback! First of all, I don’t remember how tall you are, but very likely you are not much taller than me. So I wonder what your opinion that over 1.80 meter tall using the toilet room won't be fun is based on. In fact I’m 1.82 meter tall and I have not had any problems with using the toilet room. I understand that for very tall people the toilet room can be tight, but not slightly more than 1.80 meter tall. So-called sweat-proven layer which I call the mattress protector purpose is protect mattress against stains and dirt. It sounds disgusting when you used the word mold. I suspect deeply that the mattress could start to mold under normal conditions with a mattress protector or not. We want to offer our guests good conditions, so we took note of your feedback and we replaced plastic mattress protectors with breathable mattress protectors. New mattress covers are made of lyocell / cotton which breathes well and helps air to circulate and moisture to evaporate.

Kiitos paljon for the stay in Samin mökin. It was very cosy, very Finnish. He recommended restaurants and told us where to find supermarkets, busses, et cetera. He was very quick in responding e-mails and very kind. Communication with Sami was great and he took care of everything (towel, coffee, tv, internet, maps, info). Ps: He recommended Pub Niska. We are delicious pizzat! Turun linna is also great to visit.
