A studio in a cozy Savio neighborhood in Kerava, 30 mins to Helsinki city centre and 20 mins to Helsinki-Vantaa Int. Airport. A convenient set point for getting to know the Greater Helsinki area, since both the public transportation and getting around with your own car is easy.
If you want to spend your nights in the vibrant Helsinki downtown, this isn't your choice. However, if you're looking for a reasonably-priced yet neat option with superb tranportation connections, this is your match.
My small and cozy studio is ideal for 1 or 2 guests and offers 1 queen size bed (140x200 cm). I also have a chair that converts into a bed (80x200 cm) for one extra guest (if you don't mind having limited floor space).
The apartment is well situated for public transport and that makes it an ideal base for exploring the Helsinki metropolitan area.
The apartment is on the second floor (no elevator) and has a balcony plus a French balcony, sheets, towels, coffee/tea supplies, WiFi, TV, and a free parking space.
Guests will have access to entire apartment for the whole of their stay. I am not around myself.
Interaction with guests
This is a perfect option for an independent guest who appreciates privacy. In most cases I will only meet the guests at the key reception. You can contact me 24/7 via phone and e-mail during your stay, if anything sudden happens with the apartment. I’m also glad to answer your questions and willing to give you information about the public transportation, recommend you stuff etc., before and during your stay.
Please note: I do not live in the apartment which I am renting. I'm often busy with my work and family life and have lots of other things going on. This means I’m not able to hang out and socialize with my guests. I hope you understand this and are ok with it.
Other things to note
My apartment is located conveniently close to the airport, it's only a 15-20 mins drive. The only downside to this is that you can hear airplanes landing. For 98 % of my guests this hasn't been an issue, but if you are a very light sleeper, you should bear this in mind.
I handle all my bookings and payments via Airbnb. Please do not ask to book "straight from me" - it saves everyone's time and trouble :).
When you send me a booking request (and do not book straight away): If my apartment is free, I send you a pre-approval which means I give you 24 hours to confirm your reservation. Please note that your booking isn’t confirmed until you have clicked ”Book it” in our message thread and added your payment information. Before you confirm your booking, the Airbnb calendar considers it just an inquiry, and if a paid booking comes through, you may not be able to book the dates you wished for anymore. So, when I've send you a pre-approval and you decide my apartment is the right choice for you, make sure to complete the booking process as soon as possible.
