Welcome to a centrally located large 42 m2 studio 7 minutes walk from the railway station and 2 minutes walk from the congress center Paviljonki (you can actually see it from my balcony). Mattilanniemi campus and main campus about 2 km away.
The building is situated between two parks, the main one being a popular summers day destination for locals. You can bathe in the sun, climb on a wall or go for a swim. The small beach is only 2 minutes walk from my home: you can easily go for a morning swim and then come back and have a breakfast.
Free wifi (now upgraded to a more reliable and faster -> Speedtest shows 30 MB download and 11 MB upload speed), coffee and tea included! In the summer time you're also welcomed to sample my mini garden; I'd appreciate if you could water it, though. :)
You can also use the washing machine and of course all the kitchen appliances (toaster, microwave oven, blender etc.).
Unfortunately I don't have parking space. Jyväs-Parkki parking garage is nearby for visitors with a car.
Interaction with Guests
I'll be out of town while your visit but you can phone me if you have any questions.
My home is located in a newly built area of central Jyväskylä, only 500 meters from the center. It has a beautiful park, easy acces to other parts of town and of course the lake - of which there's a view from my balcony. The building itself is 10 years old, and in a good condition.
Railway station is only 5 minutes away and the trade fair center (and Rally center) only 2 minutes away. Two grocery stores (Siwa and K-market) is only 200 and 400 meters away and Alko (Finnish alcohol store) just 10-15 minutes away.
Other Things to Note
The balcony is a great place to chill out and watch the view over the lake.
Please check in before 5pm so that I have time to catch the train away from town.
No smoking please.
Risto was very welcoming and friendly. He told us everything we needed to know about the apartment. The apartment has everything you need and the location is perfect! We loved staying here and would definitely recommend this place.
I felt very welcome at Ristos place. It was a really nice place to stay. I can give my deepest recomendations!!
Voor ons was het onze eerste kennismaking met Airbnb, en zeker niet onze laatste.
Toen wij in de studio kwamen voelden we ons direct zeer welkom. Risto had er rekening mee gehouden dat wij later aankwamen, door alvast wat eten in de koelkast klaar te leggen. De kamer was netjes en de bedden opgemaakt. Onze dochter, die in Jyväskylä stage loopt, kon alle dagen gezellig bij ons blijven in de studio. We hebben gebruik gemaakt van de sauna en het beschutte balkon (met geweldig uitzicht over het meer) gebruikt om af te koelen, heerlijk!
Een echte aanrader om naar toe te gaan, echt maar 10 minuten lopen naar het centrum!
De enige kanttekening die ik heb is dat er geen makkelijke mogelijkheden zijn om te parkeren (we hadden een auto gehuurd). Parkeren moet in een parkeergarage of aan de rand van de weg met een parkeerkaart (elke 2uren verzetten). Op zich niet erg maar het zou wel prettig zijn om de parkeerregels van te voren te weten.
Het zou ook wel duidelijker mogen zijn wat er van ons verwacht wordt, we hebben de studio schoon achtergalaten, maar hadden we ook het beddegoed en de handdoeken moeten wassen? Misschien is dit onze onervarenheid maar toch.....
Voor ons de eerste, maar zeker niet de laatste keer dat wij geboekt hebben bij Airbnb.
Great place! Great host!
Risto is a very nice and considerate host, with a sense of humor. He had a local map and a bus schedule for me before I arrived, as well as an umbrella (because the weather report showed rain throughout the week). He provided all the necessary information about the apartment and its surroundings, and politely responded to all my questions. So he made me feel like a real guest at his place.
The apartment is in a beautiful location by the lake, even with a view from the balcony. It is nicely decorated, and kept in great condition, very clean. And the sauna is a real treat! This was my best airbnb experience so far. Thank you Risto! If I were to go back, I’d definitely want to stay at your place again :)
Risto's apartment was fantastic. Clean and well presented. Worked out really well during the WRC Rally Finland. It was so close to the service park and the centre of town. Easy to access the main roads and drive to various stages from the carpark. The in room wi-fi worked a treat. Highly recommended.
Probably the best private rental I've ever had. The apartment was spotless and the location and apartment are second to none
Absolutely amazing! Beautiful flat, lovely area, great trip! (I even had a swim in the lake). Thanks Risto! Mx
I'm a guy from Finland who loves to travel abroad - especially when the weather starts to turn too cold for me. I love good food and exploring cities on foot. I also like nature.
