Description

The space

If you'd ask people from Helsinki where in the city they'd like to live if they had the choice lots of them would name Siltasaari... but there are only two houses located at this amazing spot of the city!

Our beautiful 2-room apartment is situated by a calm bay in the heart of Helsinki, on Siltasaari spit in Hakaniemi, between city centre and Kallio.
From here you can easily reach the city's sights by foot. The cathedral is within a five minutes walk, as well as the university. The port and the Esplanade, Kiasma museum of contemporary art, shops etc. are within a 10 minutes walk. The university's beautiful botanical gardens are just on the opposite side of the bay. The main railway station is only a 15 minute's walk away.

The apartment is very bright and cosy. The sun rises on the kitchen's side, so you can enjoy its first rays during breakfast in our large and well equipped kitchen. In the afternoon you can take a rest by the old fireplace on the canapé in the sun-flooded living room and watch the sunset on the seaside from the higher-up alcove bed (1m60).

You can also take bright midnight walks around the bay where people pick-nick in the evenings. In winter time you can have an unforgettable stroll on the frozen sea just in front of our house and take a hot shower with cozy heated bathroom floor when you get home.

If you stay over Thursday you can privately use the houses sauna on Thursday evening from 8 to 9pm and have a cooling beer at the mini beach in front of our house.

There is a second sofa-bed (1m60) for two located in the spacious kitchen. Perfect accommodation for a family, friends or two couples!
Dogs are very welcome, we have one too. Unfortunately cats aren't because of allergies.

The apartment is equipped with a washing machine, a dishwasher, a hoover, a hair dryer, an iron, quality speakers for your own music, a guitar, lots of books in English, French, Finnish and German and a pétanque boules to play at the bay.

Guest access

Guests have the whole apartment at their disposal.

Interaction with guests

We are travelling but try to answer possible calls and mails and assist you when help is needed. Anyway, there will be detailed instructions for everything, plus our recommendations of what to do in Helsinki and in the neighbourhood!

The neighbourhood

The apartment is uniquely located: on a spit by a quiet bay between the city centre and trendy Kallio, the former industrial and working class neighbourhood, nowadays full of bars, restaurants, clubs and a lively arts scene. Next by is the old market hall of Hakaniemi with all the fresh produce possible. Supermarkets, alcohol-store, pharmacy, post office and bank just around the corner.

Getting around

Airport bus 615 drops you off right by the apartment on Hakaniemi square. This is a junction: all the eastbound buses from the city stop here, all the westbound take you to the centre. Most of the trams go by here. Railway station is within 15 minutes walk and 5 minutes with a bus or a tram. Anyway, you can walk everywhere.

The appartement of Rike & Saku is really nice and well placed. We moved only by walking to visit Helsinki. During the evening, the appartement view of the see is just amazing! We will not hesitate to come back here if the occasion happens.

We had a great stay at Saku and Rike's place. They were very responsive to our requests and questions although we didn't have the pleasure to meet Saku and Rike in person. The location is very central and public transport is easy to get to. Would definitely stay here again!
