Apartment is located very close to the center. There is a tram stop straight above my window so you don't need to walk much to reach other part of the Helsinki. When you come from the airport you just need to take a Finnair city bus and walk 50 meters to get here. Total time is less than 30 min.

Nearest grocery store (Siwa, open everyday 7am-24am) is next to my appartment. There is also very good restaurant, Weeruska, which I can highly recommend. Linnanmäki, amusement park, and Sealife are around the corner. 5 min by walk.

I don't recommend this apartment for those who are allergic to cats. I have one and no matter how accurately I clean, there might be some allergen left. Sorry about that.

Please send me a message to confirm the dates before booking. I would also appreciate if you can tell me something about yourself.

I would be happy to help you if you want to know some particular things about my lovely city :)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We only communicated with Sari online and on the phone, but got the impression that she is a very friendly host. We stuffed up our arrival times but Sari was accommodating and flexible, and arranged another way to pass on the keys. She was also very responsive and helpful when we were lost at finding the entrance to her apartment.

    Sari's place is conveniently located near a supermarket, post office, a great local pub as well as trams that go to the Hakaniemi food market and the city centre. The bed on the ground floor is small for couples who both love to hog the bed, so the bed in the attic corner is a perfect alternative for a short stay.

    We would recommend this gem to fellow travellers!

  • It was a very nice stay for two people, close to the tramway and a nice neighborhood. Sari was a pleasant host and answer to all our questions during our stay. We loved our trip in Helsinki and will probably do it again.

  • Sari's place was perfect for us. Just enough space for 2 people. It was close enough to walk or take the tram to downtown and there were plenty of places to explore around her apartment. Sari was very organized about getting us the key and kept in contact throughout our stay. We hope to be back soon!

  • Very nice host, quick communication and the flat was very clean. There was a tram-station near the flat so it was easy to go the city centre.

  • We had a nice and comfortable stay at Sari's apartment. The flat is nicely decorated and has everything you need to cook and feel at home. The location is perfect with a supermarket and tram station close by. Would recommend this place.

  • We stayed at Sari's apartment in Jan'14. It's situated in the center of Helsinki. The apartment is cozy and comfortable. Our elder kid was delighted from the bed on the up floor :). The apartment has well-equiped little kitchen with all necessary things and devices. Unfortunately we hadn't met with Sari personally but we were always in touch by e-mail and text messages. Also there were no problem with getting the key thanks to Sari's clear instructions.
    Highly recommended!

  • This apartment was perfect for us, we felt like home there. It is really easy to go to the city cause the tram- and busstation is so close. There was just one minus for us spoiled Swiss girls ;), the beds are pretty hard, especially if two persons are sleeping in one bed, but that was the only thing we didn't liked 100%. We look back to a wonderful holiday and one positive point was definitely the stay in this apartment. Kiitos!

  • Sari's flat was so cozy, clean and simply perfect. We had our own place during our stay in Helsinki which was really great. We were sorry we didn't meet her because she was travelling but we were really surprised about how she managed everything. Definitely recommend this flat! Thank you.

  • Sari was a lovely host. Very welcoming into her cozy apartment even meeting us at the bus stop from the airport to guide us back to her place. Lots of useful tips, places to eat and a great location close to the tram into the city. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you
