I and my wife stayed in Elianne house. This house view was amazing for us. House location is very nice. Because this is not city center. But more comfortable location and every day saw the whole of sea and took tram 4 line and just spent 10 min to go city center. When we got 3 days ticket, which is including all transformation like bus,metro,tram as well as ferry. If you want to stay long day. I recommend this house. 집의 위치는 중심에서 10분정도 트램으로 이동하면 있는 한적한 바다 근처 집입니다. 집은 2층에 있는데 뷰가 엄청 좋아서 완전 만족했습니다. 교통도 트램4번을 타면 중앙역,백화점까지 근방가서 좋구요 무엇보다 제 와이프가 저는 조용하고 한적한 동네를 좋아해서요 진짜 핀란드 인들이 사는 지역인것 같아서 좋았습니다.교통동3일데이 겟을 구매하시면 버스,메트로,트램 그리고 수오멘린나까지 페리로 다 이용가능하고 숙소에서 트램4로 5분거리에 있어서 아주 좋습니다~^^

The apartment was just as expected: clean, very nicely decorated, well equipped and in a great location, with a balcony overlooking the sea and only a couple of minutes from the tram and a local supermarket. Elianne was very helpful and she lives literally next door. It is in a quiet area but only a few minutes by tram from the city centre. The sauna in the apartment was a great bonus and we used it several times even though it was summer. We would have no hesitation in staying there again and would recommend it very highly.

This was our first air b n b experience! We will certainly be doing this again with such a superhost. The private sauna worked a treat both nights where we could relax after a long day walking and sightseeing in Helsinki. The apt was modern and clean. It was lovely to have breakfast on the balcony and Elianne made life easy for us with supermarket and gave us great privacy. 5 stars.

We booked Elianne's place nearly 5 months prior to our visit. Elianne and her husband Kaj were very friendly and nice, and gave us prompt response every time we contacted them. The place is as lovely as mentioned in other reviews - close to the centre on foot, also has a tram station just 3 mins walk from home, lovely sauna, perfect balcony (great place to have a beer after the sauna), comfortable bed.. I don't think I could ask for more. :) Elianne was like a friendly auntie who I would like to visit again. Thank you for everything. Kiitos!!

We had a great week staying in Elianne's comfortable, clean apartment. The view from the window is wonderful, we loved watching the ferries coming in every morning and the sauna was a very welcome way to warm up after a day sightseeing. The apartment is conveniently situated for getting into the city centre, either walking or on the Number 4 tram. We also found the airport taxis to be a great way to get to and from the airport and very reasonably priced. Elianne was a fantastic host and always responded promptly to any questions we had. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Helsinki for its location, facilities and welcoming hosts.

Next door neighbor, living here at this waterfront condo with my husband & co-host Kaj, since 1982 and loving it! I work in public broadcasting since 33 years, now semi retired. I frequently enjoy theater, seminars, and concerts - also in my personal favorite place to travel; Stockholm. Other favorite activities of mine are cooking, my book circle. In summer I spend time at our "mökki" lake cabin, - i.e. more or less one big sauna - swimming, cooking in the fireplace, reading and gathering bilberries, mushrooms and peace of mind in the forest. Swedish is my mothers tongue and the minority Official Language of Finland. I have an Authorized Translators degree of Finnish-Swedish, I'm fluent also English and understand German, Norwegian and some Danish.
My guideline in hosting is to offer such an accommodation as I myself wish for: delightful, central and yet seren, comfy and well equipped - also with the smallest necessities like tape, pen and post its and - of course: wonderfully clean.
