The area does not have that many attractions but the surroundings them self are really beautiful. There is a partial view to the sea and the shore is about 100 meters away.

Eero's father met us at the parking and showed the apartment, answered all our questions. He was very friendly and hospitable.
The apartment is cozy and comfortable. It is equipped with all one may need for a short or a long stay. It is also free parking space near the apartment. There is a supermarket in a few hundred meters walk from the house.
Eero was very welcoming. While he was showing us around the aparment he shared some tips about what to see and we told us interesting stuff about Finland.
The apartment was awesome, comfortable and spacey. We enjoyed the built-in sauna, an extensive range of kitchen tools and TV with cable. It felt like home, with all the table games and books present. It was cosy and I will sincerly miss spending those four days at Eero's place.
The neighbourhood is very nice and quiet, makes for a very good relaxation. Even though not centrally located it has a very good and fast connectivity to other parts of the city through bus lines. Tip: check the schedules online or take a picture of the schedule announcement at the bus stops beforehand and exit the house just in time for the bus. Transport usually follows the schedule very strictly. The big grocery store was just around the corner, very convenient. We rented a car for a day and managed to park it not far from the house, thanks to Eero's recommendations.
Peaceful and ideal location. Great apartment. Wonderfully helpful host. Recommended (highly).
The apartment is really nice (especially the sauna!!), located in a quiet area. It's easy to take a bus to go there. Eero made his best to make things convenient for us (check in, check out). We highly recommend this apartment if you want to stay one or more night(s) in Turku!
Notre passage chez Eero s est très bien passé, tout avait été prévu pour notre arrivée, et Eero s est adapté a nos horaires pour nous accueillir .
L appartement est un peu excentré mais très bien desservi par les transports (bus), à seulement 1 min a pied des arrêts de bus , et juste a côté d un supermarché.
Nous sommes très contents de notre passage a Turku et recommandons ce logement !
Eero and his brother were very nice. The area is quiet and feels very safe. The apartment matches the description. We enjoyed the sauna in the apartment!
A good place to stay.
