The space

A large warm and quiet room 3 min. from the Kandalaksha train station.

The building was constructed in 1939, and the apartment itself and your room is a bit of a time capsule from 1970s. But bedding is clean, water is running, and the toilet works.

No mice. No roaches. One very quiet and not too smelly dog.

Good WiFi. Access to computer can be arranged.

Guests are welcomed to use the kitchen and washing machine.

Several good stores and inexpensive cafes nearby.

Hosts are well connected locally and will be able to answer many of your questions related to Kandalaksha, the Kandalaksha Nature Reserve, and places along the south edge of the Kola peninsula.

Film makers, do-gooders, or journalists or others who come here for a reason are especially welcomed.

$25/person, no extra fees.

Disclaimers and warnings:

The apartment is rundown, So is the building and the entire city, as well as this whole part of the world. Water reeks of sulfur. The window view is gloomy. Hosts, while helpful, are asocial types and won't engage in friendly chat.

House Rules

No smoking indoors in the only rule I can think of. Ours is a very easy household. Think of us as ageing hippies.

The stay was really nice and everything went smoothly. The room was cozy and nice. Paul was very friendly to arrange me a meeting with a local to talk with and get to know Kandalaksha.

Павел - отличный хозяин, большое ему спасибо за приём! Терпеливо нас дождался, хотя мы приехали рано утром вместо обещанного вечера, всё показал, всё рассказал. Нам очень понравилось, атмосфера в квартире крайне положительная, много интересных книг на полках :) Paul is a nice host, we're very grateful for a warm welcome. He patiently waited for us despite the fact that we were 12 hours late. Everything is very nice, the atmosphere is welcoming, a lot of interesting books on the shelves :)
