About this listing

The space

This atmospheric apartment is situated on a very quiet cobblestone street, just one hundred meters from the old town square in medieval Tallinn. You could not be more central.
The apartment offers a large and attractive terrace, and the main bedroom that overlooks an inner courtyard, has a large and very romantic open fireplace .
We also have a single bedroom that looks out onto the terrace, a large kitchen with dinning table and a beautifully detailed bathroom with bathtub and washing machine. It is wifi connected.
An abundance of museums, old churches and restaurants are just minutes away. The Holy Ghost church, a medieval building (parts of the construction date from the 13th century) is to be found at the top of our street, as is the Tallinn city museum, housed in a 14th century merchants dwelling. Located at bottom of our quiet meandering cobblestone way is the hotel Schloessle a 5 star accommodation.
And just in case you thought Tallinn was only meant to be visited in the summer, I would like to reveal to you that during its dark and snowy months, Tallinn is one of the most romantic cities in Europe. Candle lighted cafes, an abundance of open fires in warm and welcoming restaurants, lively bars. Fewer tourists.
Autumn also brings the Dark Nights Film Festival, an international collection of some of the best and most talked about films of the year. A highlight for all of Scandinavia, and every theater in walking distance from the apartment.
It is also signal for the beginning of the music season. A time of chamber recitals, concerts and opera.
And as Christmas approaches, so does the construction of the Christmas Market in the Old Town Square. Said to be one of the best, if not the best market in all of Europe. Unique and finely crafted gifts are in abundance, as is gluh wine and Christmas cheer.

Look no further! We had a great stay at Wayne's apt. Everything was so great and even better than we expected. Location! Minutes from train station and in the heart of the Old Town, better could be only in the Town Hall itself, and then you wouldn't have a supermarket on the same street. Beautiful, roomy apartment, with terrace and fireplace. All inclusive. Communication was superior, all our questions and requests answered right away. Very pleasant stay, highly recommended!

Hi Wayne and Anu, Tineke and I love your appartment very much. It is very cosy and has a positive atmosphere. The location is perfect, right in the old city of Tallinn. We certainly recommend your appartment!

Most perfect location to discover Tallin EVER! It's almost as if every tour we took around the old city took us back home by accident! Loved it all! And the apartment! Wow! So comfy! Thanks for all!

Wonderful and unique apartment! Everything you need is here (from nearby markets to oil in the kitchen). I'ts also warm in it if it's snowing (usually in Tallin's flats are cold). Great for travelers with a kid. Отличное место, всё есть: и супермаркеты рядом и всё необходимое на кухне, даже масло для жарки. В доме тепло при нуле, что удивительно для таллинских квартир (надо только увеличить обогрев). Очень рекомендую и обязательно сами вернёмся. Идеально для семей с одним ребёнком. Его комната будет очень уютная:)

Nice and quite flat in the old town at the most central position possible. Communcation and reception were perfect. The less good is the bad mattress in the small bed, that eventhough it is large there is no living room corner to relax, smell of smoke a little, a bit dark. Good place however although I know a better one next door.

I am an Australian writer living in both Estonia and the Netherlands. I wrote my first book while living in an old schoolhouse in the Estonian countryside. Estonia, then newly independent from the Sovjet Union, made such a deep and hopeful impression on me, that I decided to buy an apartment in Tallinn so that I would always have a home whenever I returned.
Because my work often takes me to Australia and Latin America, I am in Estonia infrequently these days, and when that is the case, guests will be received by my Estonian friend Anu Liibek.
