The space

The house is on an island with no public transport to take you there. Hence depending on the sea ice the house may not be accessible at all between November and April.
An atmospheric log cabin on one of the 40,000 islands off the South Western coast of Finland. A 4km motorboat ride from a marina (Kasnäs) which is a 2,5 hours drive from the centre of Helsinki or the Helsinki airport.

There's a twice daily bus connection from Helsinki and the airport to Kasnäs.

The island is about 1000 metres long and 600 metres wide and is shared between 7 holiday homes, none of whom is visible from the house.

There are no roads on the forested island and the only way of access is by boat (private or taxi) or by foot/ski's during the winter months when the sea is frozen over.

The house consists of a large living room/kitchen space, 3 bedrooms (one with a separate entrance, a washroom with a hot water heater and a sauna. There is no running water but the rain and sea water is sufficient for washing and the drinking water can be picked up in containers from the marina.


Indoor fireplace

Dear Tapio, We had an amazing long weekend on Batskarat (see photo). We particularly liked the Buster M, the collection of National Geographics, the sauna and French Scrabble. We had no luck fishing unfortunately. The manual was a great help, we left the house and boat the …

Wir haben eine ganz wunderbare Zeit in Tapios und Anjas Haus verbracht. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, wenn man die begrenzten Möglichkeiten auf einer "einsamen" Insel bedenkt. Von der Sauna aus hat man sogar einen Blick aufs Meer... Zu beachten gilt allerdings, dass die Ins…
