A beautiful newly renovated row house apartment has a feeling of countryside just 20 min away from down town. The house was designed in the 1950's by the famous architect Hilding Ekelund. The housing company (20 houses) is said to be the first row house area in Finland. The surrounding nature is full of old trees, bushes and flowers. The flat easily fits 8 and is located on a quiet street next to Central Park close to good grocer's, play grounds, bus stops, etc. Perfect for families!

The space

Welcome to stay in our beautiful, newly renovated apartment in Maunula district, Helsinki. You're welcome to use all the basic facilities. WiFi included. If in need of bicycles, that can be arranged, too.

Our apartment has five floors with stairs connecting them (please take a look at the floor plan to get an idea). From the living room, small balcony and kitchen you can see to the beautiful garden and sky (if there are not too many clouds, this is the place to admire the moon). Above the living room there's a loft space with a small reading room and a bed.

One floor lower you'll find two bedrooms and a bathroom with a hot tub. The outer hall and the entrance are located on the first floor as well as one of the bedrooms. From there you have a lovely garden view.

In the basement you'll find a toilet, sauna and a shower room as well as a laundry room with a washing machine and lots of space to dry your washings. Also in the basement there's a quiet and peaceful guest room which easily turns into an yoga and meditation space. All rooms have beautiful, newly renovated wooden floors.

The architect is also known for designing the Helsinki Taidehalli Gallery, Olympic Velodrome, Olympic Village and Helsinki street kiosks, to give a few examples.

We had a great time in Meri's house. She was a very generous host and left us sll sorts of Finnish treats to try! We loved the basement sauna and used it every evening before dinner. The whole experience was very relaxing - it's a great spot on the edge of the forest yet very easy for the city and the airport in the other direction.

It was a very warm welcome by Meri and her whole family. The accommodation was as described with very lovely decoration. We were free to use everything available, even all the kid's toys. We felt like at home :-) The neighborhood was quiet with a lot of possibilities to go out for a walk. Public transportation to the city center was no problem. Thanks to Meri, we had a great time.

Great place to stay! Nice and quiet neighbourhood, conveniently located for families, well connected to city center by many buses. The house is well equipped, nothing was missed, it is very nice but no too fancy, so perfect if you have kids -there were lots of toys to play with. Sauna is also a good point, and the garden is right upstairs the sauna, so it is a good option to rest in he garden after sauna, having a lemonade or beer. Garden is quite small but cute, and has a grill for making bbq around a table. Accomodation is fine if you are not too picky, children slept in beds and bunk beds, which they loved, but adults in futon-like beds, a bit uncomfortable at first, but ok for a few days. Kitchen fully equipped, and supermarkets near by. The hosts were very nice to us from the very first moment we asked about the house and till the very last minute of our stay. Meri was available any time to answer our doubts or even suggesting things. She was very attentive and nice, and we found it all very easy-going. I stongl recommend Meri, their home, and the city of Helsinki. Meri, thanks for everything, hope you always have nice guests and find as nice hosts as ourselves! :-))

I'm a 30+ writer from Helsinki, Finland. Me and my husband rent our house in Helsinki usually on holidays or when staying abroad a little longer.

I have a huge respect for kind and considerate people. I always try to be one myself, too. We love renting our house and seeing, time after time, how thoughtful and nice people can be towards our home. It's amazing to connect with people around the world and have guests from different corners of the planet. The best feeling is, when you don't want to leave home but instead stay with your lovely guests and have an amazing holiday together! (But don't worry, we do always leave...)

When staying at someone else's house we try to be respectful, good and reliable guests. Berlin is our favorite city in the world, but we travel a lot in other countries, too.
