About our home

Welcome to Scandinavian suburbia. Our home is a two-storey house located on quiet cul-de-sac, just 20mins by car to Finland's capital Helsinki. Helsinki is a vibrant seaside city with many parks to discover. Our home is close enough to all that the capital has to offer, but far enough to enjoy peaceful surroundings and nature paths.

Our house was built for our family in 2015, so everything is new. We have 4 bedrooms and two baths one upstairs one downstairs and a sauna. With a modern Scandinavian decor all throughout the house, you will feel very comfortable. The master bedroom, a bathroom, living room and kitchen area with a dining table for 6-8 people are located downstairs. Three bedrooms, family room/open area, bathroom, sauna and laundry room are located upstairs. We have a fire place and a sauna for cozy winter evenings.
From the living room you can walk out on the back patio that has a dining table for eight people and a three burner Weber grill for lovely summer days. High fence just built for added privacy. Trampoline for kids. Bikes for two adults, three kids.

Easy access by public transportation closest bus stop 4 min. walk, just 30 mins to Helsinki city (Finland's capital) center by bus. 5 minute walk to supermarket. 30mins drive from Helsinki-Vantaa airport. Excellent cross country skiing paths 5 minutes away(walking).
No pets and definitely non-smoking. No wild parties either. High speed internet/ Wi-FI. TV, Viaplay. Closest beach less than 5 minutes drive. We take care of our home and and hope that anyone staying here will do likewise.
If you come and stay in our house we recommend that you take a one or two-day inexpensive cruise to Estonia or Sweden to add more countries on your list, the boats are huge cruise boats and the scenery is beautiful especially in the summertime. Also recommend to take a few hour tour that takes you sailing on the beautiful archipelago of Finland.

There is plenty of things to do as we are in the capital region but also quiet relaxation for those wishing to just take it easy.
Looking for a longer stay 2-3 weeks in June 2017 to the United States preferably on the east coast Connecticut, Cape Cod area, Long Island, Massachusetts, Virginia, Maryland, North or South Carolina. Open for last minute suggestions between December 20- 7th of Jan 2017, or February 18-26th.
