About our home
Located on the top-floor of an early 20th century Jugend style building, our 133 m2 family apartment has spacious rooms with high ceilings and lots of light and can accommodate up to 6 persons. Situated only a block away from the river Aura, this is the best location to experience the Finnish summer in the oldest city of Finland. In the city of Turku you can both visit historical sights and enjoy lively city life by the banks of Aura with its numerous cafés, restaurants and restaurant boats(!). The unique beauty of Turku's archipelago is just a few minutes' boat ride away. If you want to visit the idyllic old town of Naantali and Moomin World, it only takes a three-minute walk to reach the traditional steamship to Naantali.
In the apartment there are four spacious rooms: a living room with a view to the river, a huge dining room with a sofa bed (160x200cm), a big children's room with two separate beds (80X200cm) and a parents' bedroom with a futon bed (140x200cm). There is an original Jugend style fireplace in each room. The well-equipped kitchen offers a view to the green sports park. There is a small sauna in the bathroom and, in addition, a separate toilet. You can enter our third-floor apartment either through a beautiful Jugend style staircase or by using a modern lift at the back of the building. You can also explore the city and surrounding area by using our bicycles.
“Our hosts proposed a swap and we thought why not. Turku is a lovely city to visit every now and then. Everything worked very well, a super smooth swap. Communication played out suberbly. The home was well equiped, clean, comfortable and spaceus with great location next to Aura river. Thank you Markus and family, we would love to come again!”

“We did a simultaneous swap with Markus and Tuija. It was our first time in Scandinavia and we really enjoyed it. We felt absolutely at home in M + T's beautiful flat. Communication with them beforehand (and during) was excellent - we Skyped a week or so ahead of time and communicated via WhatsApp during our stay with various questions.
They left our home in absolutely perfect shape as well.
Altogether, a great first experience with LHS. We would swap again with Markus and Tuija in a minute.”
