Beautiful and bright, cosy 60m2 flat located by a bay in the heart of Helsinki. 5-10min walk to the cathedral, port, esplanade and shopping streets.
Lovely sea & sunset view from the living room and alcove bed. Nice big kitchen, dishwasher & washing machine. Private Thursday evening sauna included!
Public transportation (metro, trams & buses), restaurants, cafés, bars, galleries, shops, market and everything you need just around the corner in a lively though quiet and friendly neighbourhood.
If you'd ask people from Helsinki where in the city they'd like to live if they had the choice lots of them would name Siltasaari... but there are only two houses located at this amazing spot of the city!
Our beautiful 2-room apartment is situated by a calm bay in the heart of Helsinki, on Siltasaari spit in Hakaniemi, between city centre and Kallio.
From here you can easily reach the city's sights by foot. The cathedral is within a five minutes walk, as well as the university. The port and the Esplanade, Kiasma museum of contemporary art, shops etc. are within a 10 minutes walk. The university's beautiful botanical gardens are just on the opposite side of the bay. The main railway station is only a 15 minute's walk away.
The apartment is very bright and cosy. The sun rises on the kitchen's side, so you can enjoy its first rays during breakfast in our large and well equipped kitchen. In the afternoon you can take a rest by the old fireplace on the canapé in the sun-flooded living room and watch the sunset on the seaside from the higher-up alcove bed (1m60).
You can also take bright midnight walks around the bay where people pick-nick in the evenings. In winter time you can have an unforgettable stroll on the frozen sea just in front of our house and take a hot shower with cozy heated bathroom floor when you get home.
If you stay over Thursday you can privately use the houses sauna on Thursday evening from 8 to 9pm and have a cooling beer at the mini beach in front of our house.
There is a second sofa-bed (1m60) for two located in the spacious kitchen. Perfect accommodation for a family, friends or two couples!
Dogs are very welcome, we have one too. Unfortunately cats aren't because of allergies.
The apartment is equipped with a washing machine, a dishwasher, a hoover, a hair dryer, an iron, quality speakers for your own music, a guitar, lots of books in English, French, Finnish and German and a pétanque boules to play at the bay.
Guests have the whole apartment at their disposal.
