Hi, and welcome to Helsinki. We are Apaar & Larisa and we are an adventurous, travel-loving, international couple. We look forward to meeting you!
The reservation was canceled 20 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Apaar and Larisa are lovely, welcoming hosts who are happy to help with tips for Helsinki or just sit and chat. The room itself is really comfortable, bright and well furnished, the apartment is a short walking distance from the city centre. And yes, Larisa makes a super morning coffee! Made my short, winter stay in Helsinki really pleasant.
Apaar and Larisa had a wonderful place. Larisa's sister Katrina was a wonderful lady who hosted my whole Apaar and Larisa were away. We had some great conversations about life and I really enjoyed her company. But more to the point, their place was lovely. 10-15 minute stroll by foot to the beautiful centre of Helsinki, it was perfectly located. Close to the beautiful church built into the bedrock and close to beautiful parks with waterside paths. The room was perfectly sized with wonderful views of the stars. The other amenities such as bathroom, laundry and kitchen were great and made my stay extra convenient. I am sad to have not met Larisa and Apaar however I felt comfortable in their place and from what I can gather they are fantastic people. If I return to Helsinki one day I would definitely consider and recommend a stay at their place.
We are very much enjoyed staying at that place.
While we was in Helsinki, Apaar & Larisa travelling ourselves. And Larisa's sister Karina was at home to host us. Karina speaks Russian too -) She was so kind to guide us about some nice places in the city.
They are a great hosts who made us feel right at home.
The location couldn't be better: central Helsinki.
Apaar & Larisa, Karina many thanks for your hospitality!
I recommend and I'd love to go there again!
Very highly recommended for those who are keen to visit Helsinki!
I really enjoyed my stay with Apaar & Larisa - they are fantastic hosts. I was fortunate to enjoy a Finnish breakfast one morning during my three days there, and they were very kind with their hospitality and tips and advice for visiting Helsinki.
Great location and space - it is very close to the downtown core and a short walk to catch my ferry to Tallinn, a day trip I highly recommend!
I stayed Appar and Larisa's place for three nights. The house and room were very clean, specious and warm !! Warmness is important in Helsinki !! In addition to this, Appar's personality was warmer than home !! ( Unfortunately, I couldn't see Larisa since she was on a travel ) He helped me to check information when I asked how to get the place where I wanted to visit. He also gave me some food and tea. The bed linen in a room was so Funnish, Marimekko !! The location was ideal as well, which was so close to the central. Many touristic places are walking-distance !!
Apaar's apartment was conveniently located for sightseeing in Helsinki and I had a comfortable and undisturbed stay at his apartment. Apaar was also an accommodating and helpful host, and I was made to feel welcome in his apartment. He also did a good job promoting the virtues of Nokia phones to me:-)
My stay at Apaar & Larisa's was great and I enjoyed staying in their central flat to explore Helsinki.
Even though Apaar & Larisa have not been there during my stay I had a really good time and Larisas sister Karina hosted me quite well.
The apartment is wonderful light-flooded and the room really cosy, Perfect located in the center of Helsinki! Really recommendable.
Best located and Larissa's morning coffee is perfect!
We didn't get to spend too much time with Apaar and Larisa, since they were just here on a layover, but they came and went in a nice, respectful manner.
Very nice guest, polite and communicative. We almost didn't notice them in the house and my room was left tidy. Would recommend them to other hosts anytime.
Thanks for you stay
Larisa and Apaar was here for three days in the beginning of their travel to central america, they are very calm and respectful, both really sensitive and curious about our situation here in latinamerica, we could speak about Mexico and the problems here. Larisa is a journalists and Apaar works with interaction design , I highly recommend this really kind persons to be your guests for sure !
thanks Apaar and Larisa :)
We had a great time with Apaar and Larissa. They were great fun and a pleasure to host. We went out for drinks at our local village bar and also enjoyed a meal together. They shared some of their travel stories with us and they have spent time in some amazing places. If we make it to Finland we will definately look them up! They are both very easy going, interesting and easy to talk to.
