Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
The house is a nice 70's building with quiet and nice neighbours. It has a leafy garden and is located within walking distance from the city center and bus station as well as Lake Vesijärvi, Sibeliushall and the Sports center.
The studio is spacious with a separate kitchen and a big glazed balcony. There is one 120cm bed and one foldable firm sofa bed that sleeps one - owner tested for comfort.
Our home is decorated with art and design pieces from mostly local artists whom I support or have worked with. We also have an ever-changing collection of designer prototypes, as this is our area of expertise.
You are welcome to use the kitchen and washing machine. You can also treat yourself with all the books, magazines and games, both in Finnish and in English.
There is wifi at your disposal and big desk to work on.
Linens and towels are provided, plus spares. We wash all linens with eco-friendly detergents.
Shampoo and bodywash is also provided.
The house has free parking space, and a locked bike storage.
I live and work between London and Finland. Thats is why I would like the space to be accomodated while we're away.
For this reason also, I am currently unable to stock the fridge with breakfast things for you.
Grocery store and a pub (a quiet one) right outside the house. Also good service with the local buses to city centre and railwaystation.
We would love to welcome young families to stay. The flat is suitable for young ones and we can provide the basics plus some toys, just let me know beforehand what you might require. Please note that I currently don't have a cod, a high chair, or microwawe oven, but those can be arranged if needed.
