About our home

**Looking for a swap for Easter 20, open to all e.g. Copenhagen, London, Amsterdam, Paris, mountains in Norway...**

Helsinki is a trendy destination for tourists:

Welcome to our beautiful two bedroom home (107m2) in the heart of old Helsinki. Perfect for families with kids. The house was built in 1893, so we have high ceilings and decorative fire places. Our home has just been renovated with new flooring, kitchen, bathroom (more photos to come). Our children are 14, 12 and 3 years old so we have toys and games to choose from (X-box, legos etc.). The inner court is full of toys as there are many families living in this house with small children. Overall the neighbourhood is really nice with good services within 5 minutes walk; a bakery, wine shop, grocery stores, a deli (, Hakaniemi market hall, nice restaurants and bars.

No need for a car. Public transportation works well and the city center is in a walking distance also many islands can be reached by public transportation.

Some of our guests have also visited Tallinn and St.Petersburg and if interested in nature have a look at this nature park http://www.nationalparks.fien/repovesinp.

More about us

  1. We're a family of five with three children Elli 14, Anton 13 and Risto 4. We travel solo, duo or with our friends.

  2. Ville works in forestry and Niina creates food concepts in her own company Nordic Breakfast. Niina has started a food store called Anton&Anton ( that is located just few blocks from the flat. Go and grab your scones and fresh juice from the deli!

  3. We enjoy good food, chilling with friends, biking around and traveling. Summertime is spent in our summer home (especially July) so the flat is at your disposal even if we would stay in Finland. Renovating our summerhouse, gardening and boating are our main summer activities. In winter we like to go skiing. Always open for city breaks when decently priced travel expenses. Copenhagen is our favourite!
