Groundfloor in a privat house; 2 privat bedroom, privat WC, privat bathroom & wooden sauna, privat entrance, shared kitchen & terass. The other bedroom walkthrough from the other. 120cm bed, sleeps 2 persons + sofa. Wi-fi, cable TV, exercise bike, free parking.
For relaxing there is two terasses and a garden with sunchairs and a hammock and a gas bbq grill. (Not winter).
My house is 2 km from citycenter, 400m from busstop with buses that goes every 20 min weekdays, every 30 min sat/sun.
2 bikes is included. If you have a drivinglicence a car is possible to rent for short daytrips, for a minimal fee.
The neighbourhood is very peaceful on a street with houses built in 1946-50. There is a grocerystore on the same street, but the restaurants are in the citycenter.
Our kitchen is available for the guests to use at any time. I usually make my meals at home, so with little planning, dinners could be prepared by the house, if so desired.
You couldn't ask for a better host, Dick is a really really nice guy.
I can only recommend him and his place. The place is nicely located in a quiet area in walking distance from Turku Centre (2km). The place is fully equipped with everything you would need and the bed was excellent. Dick even got bikes you can loan - however i preferred to walk :)
Best thing was Dick offered to pick me up at the airport and drop me off too, for a small fee, even though it was very late and early flighttimes.
If I go back to Turku, I know where i'm staying next time also :)
Thank you for your hospitality and for making me feel very welcome in your home.
Dick's apt is comfortable, really well located and sooo cozy. He's a great host who peaked me up at market square and explained me everything I need to know about Turku, transport and so on. The house isn't in the city center, but it isn't big and you can easily get there by regular bus or by bike Dick offers to his guests.
Pay attention on the facilities in the house, everything included: sauna, terrases, a car can be rented. Strongly recommended, perfect for 2-3 guests.
Me and my family had the most wonderful time in Turku and most of it thanks to Dick and his hospitality and generosity. Showing us around town, offering his vehicle and spending time to make our stay the best as possible. I highly recommend the sauna at his place! Turku is a beautiful city with lots to offer, and let's not forget the Moominworld which is the perfect activity for people with kids! Many thanks to Dick!!
Dick is a great host and we've had the most wonderful experience in Turku. Thank you Dick so much!
His cosy house feels like home. Besides the 120 cm bed it is a perfect home to stay. With the two bikes you are in ten minutes in the centre.
Dick's apt was very well located, comfortable and clean. Dick was very helpful and such a nice person. I really enjoyed my stay in his apt and will have no doubt in returning there and/or recommend it to friends! Thanks Dick!
We couldn't have imagined a better arrival in Finland! Dick heated up the sauna and within an hour from our arrival we were enjoying this wonderful Finnish delight, cooling down afterwards with a cold drink looking out over the beautiful garden behind the house. Dick is a wonderful and thoughtful host. We joined him on the sun deck for a drink and had a lovely time talking to him. The house is beautiful and the accommodation clean and comfortable. Dick also made sure we had some information about the things to see and do in Turku. So we were very happy about our stay at Dick's and would recommend it to everyone traveling to Turku!
Dick welcomes you with open arms, smile and is ready to share his ideas to help you visit Turku and the area.
The place is nice with a quiet garden, a very good wood sauna, convenient kitchen and even a piano !
Thank you Dick for your welcoming heart and à bientôt !
Dick made me feel very comfortable. He came to pick me up at the ferry terminal and showed me how to get around the town. His place is charming and I will never forget the sauna that he prepared for me. He took the time to let me know about Finnish culture and food. I would highly recommend him as a host.
