I am 43-Year-old mother of 2 kids. I live down town Helsinki. I love travelling and sharing my apartment will nicely help me with my travelling budget. Next step Sydney!
Taru's apartment was just perfect!
She left us anything we needed, the place was clean and nit.
The apt. is very lighted and very big and room for our stuff wasn't an issue. Shower was perfect as well as the kitchen.
The apartment is located at a nice quite area and still pretty close to the center.
I will definitely come back again if ever be back to Helsinki.
We have only great things to say about this apartment. It was situated near city centre and for us in a perfect location. It was modern, roomy, had lots of natural sunlight and had a great feel. We would definitely stay here again given the chance. Also the host Taru was very nice and made us feel very welcome.
Great apartment which is an easy 20 min walk from the main station. Light, bright & airy although you may need an eye mask for the twin bedroom is you are sensitive to light in the summer. There are also 3 flights of stairs to bring your luggage up with no lift. Easy access to a good supermarket as well as deli arcade. Taru was a friendly & helpful host. Highly recommended!
Great apartment and good location. Taru was helpful and showed us some good restaurants in the area. Good choice!
You can't find a more perfect and convenient place to stay and explore Helsinki than Taru's flat. It had everything we needed: 3 bedrooms, huge living/dining room, a full, well-stocked kitchen, great bathroom and a little balcony. Yes, it was 4 floors up, but 2 of us in the party are over 60 and the steps were fine. The flat was just around the corner from easy public transportation and a walkable distance from the ferry from Tallinn. Also, just around the corner was a fun flea market that appeared everyday! Taru was welcoming and helpful. We felt very much "at home" in her home.
Great location, beautiful apartment and friendly host - doesn't get better!
A nice and clean appartment. Spacy living room. All electrical equipment (tv, dvd-player, dishwasher, washing machine) was fully functional. Enough kitchenware. Bed sheets and towels were present. The Wireless funcitoned well (even for Apple users). Taru was friendly and helpful. The appartment is at about 10 minutes walk from center of city. Nearby are many groceries, open till 23 hours. Different tram stations (6, 8 and 9) are nearby as well. Bus and train station is about 15 minutes walk.
Spacious and (even in winter) bright apartment with everything you need. We, an extendet family of 6 with one child, felt comfortable and home. Enough space in the appartment to go out of ones way if necessary.
We had really friendly contact with Taru, who was pretty accomodating respective arrival and departure times, keys etc.
A clear recomendation for anyone, that wants a good basis to discover Helsinki.
Very nice apartment - well furnished and equipped. Everything seemed easy to use - like shower, oven, TV etc. We had trouble to pick up the wireless internet so instead connected by cable to the kitchen router box. We were a family of 5 with 3 teenage kids and we felt we had plenty of space. Be aware it is a top floor flat up at least 4 flights of stairs. It is quite central- about 20 minutes walk from central station. Supermarket is very close - 5 minutes away and quite possible to walk to ferry to Tallinn.
Beautiful light-filled apartment owned by someone who clearly enjoys art and design. It was a delight to return 'home' after a very full day.
Apartment is fitted out with everything necessary for a comfortable stay and Taru was generous in making it all available to her guests.
