Cozy, chill and colourful place. Well equipped and good for couples, friends and families. Nice and calm neighborhood Pitäjänmäki-Tali and great connections to Helsinki city centre.

The space

Great connections and public transportation to the Helsinki city centre. With the Bus that leaves from around the corner you reach the centre in 15-20 minutes. Valimo railway station is also close.

Our apartment is in the nice and calm neighborhood Tali, where lots of young people and families live. Nearby there are many nice public parks - one with a small river and a waterfall only one minute walk from the the door - playgrounds and sport facilities. This is a perfect spot for outdoor activities but has great connections to the city centre too!
A big grocery store, kiosk, liquor store, gym, Chinese restaurant, a local bar and hairdresser are all really close by. You can also find pizzerias, restaurants and a library.

Our home is definitely suitable for everyone who wants to stay in a cozy, chill and colourful place. It is a good alternative for different travel groups and couples, but if you happen to have small children then this is a extremely good deal for you. Everything you need is near and we also have some gear you might need during your stay (for example high chair, a bed for a child and a potty).

The kitchen is wide and include everything you need for cooking. You can also use our toaster, electric kettle, coffeemaker and microwave. Plus we have a dishwasher, which makes your living much easier! There is a round table in the dining area, so you will all fit around it.

Our stay was very nice, the apartment was fine. Until after we left I would have rated it as excellent. Some days later Ruut send me an email to say everything was fine. Then one saying we'd left a Polar chest strap and should she post it. Then it got strange. She seems to be saying that because we left the strap, the entire flat was contaminated and needed redecorating - including books... A very strange experience ( and no, there was no mess and no smell and I cleaned everything thoroughly before we left )

We've spent almost two weeks at Ruut (and Jakob's) place and we had an excellent time. The apartment really felt like a home with nice personal touches (a hammock on the balcony, nice children's books for our daughter to leaf through, a sauna in the building etc.) The location seemed to be a bit out of the way beforehand, but the bus and local train-connections to the city centre are excellent and frequent. Right across the street there is a big supermarket with generous opening hours, which is very practical. Otherwise there are not many facilities in the direct vicinity, but a great plus is that nature is never far away (e.g. the small park with the waterfall, nice forests and a tiny, but tidy beach within walking distance for warmer days. Contact with Ruut was reliable and clear. Jakob and she are a very friendly, helpful couple and the one time during our stay we had a question, we got an answer almost immediately. In other words: highly recommended for a small family such as ours who does not have to be right in the middle of city life all the time.

Ruut's apartment is very cosy and beautiful. We felt welcomed all the time (although we only met Ruut once, at our arrival). The neighbourhood is very pretty full of trees. At our arrival, Ruut offered us an ice cream (very good actually!) and we chatted for a while. She's very sweet and willing to help (she gave us lot of recommendations what to do and where to go). I can only recommend to stay at her place - there's good public transport from and to the city and the apartment itself is just perfect. We had the best time in Helsinki!

Ruut is a really friendly host and we were warmly welcomed. The public transport towards the center is fast and easy and the apartment is perfectly situated to explore the city! The flat is pretty spacious and you'll find everything you need! We had a nice stay there and would book it again without hesitation!
