Our homely apartment is situated in the district of Katajanokka. Katajanokka is a small peninsula on the shadow of the famous Uspenski Cathedral and home to Helsinki's icebreakers and the Tove Jansson park.
It's a super peaceful neighborhood, only a 20min walk from the center or 5mins by tram. Our house is small enough for an individual or couple, but big enough for families (toys included)!
This is the place we live all year round. We are a young family with 2 small daughters. If you are travelling with a small family, our place is perfect for you: there will be toys, books, cribs, bathtubs aplenty for your little ones. If you travel alone, as a couple or group, we have tried to make our home comfortable and practical as possible.
The whole apartment is for you. You also have access to the children's playground outside the building.
The place is probably available whenever we are travelling or on holidays. But we will be reachable and keep in touch with our guests so that their stay is perfect. We will always have someone of trust nearby for anything you need.
- To ensure we keep the floorboards squeaky clean for our guests, we have a no-shoes policy inside our home.
- We understand that accidents happen. But we do ask that you please let us know when they do, especially if it involves the wooden floors. Chances are we can fix them as effortlessly as possible which also means better chances of having your full security deposit returned too.
- Our upstairs neighbour is a bit sensitive to banging noises. We kindly ask to keep things on the quieter-side after 9pm and try not to bang the floor or doors. You are most welcome to play music or the piano, but please try to keep the volume down, or use headphones.
- Our house keeps very warm and cosy during winter! The radiators automatically adjust to the keep a certain level of temperature. If you feel too hot, it's ok to open the window, but only do so for a short period of time. If you keep it open for longer, the radiators will just start pumping out more heat, so it would actually not help.
