Welcome to our home!
Our house is a charming single family home, with some "country romance". You can combine your holiday in a city and still enjoy your own peace at our house. In downstairs we have a (open) kitchen and a living room with a fireplace, toilet/wc, sauna and two porches. In upstairs we have two bedrooms and a small toilet. The other bedroom has a normal double bed and the other is our kids room with two beds. We also have sofa-bed in the living room, and air-mattresses to accommodate few extra people. We have a lovely yard with outdoor furniture and BBQ. If you wish to stay at our home in the winter, we usually have lots of snow which you can rarely see in the center. We have lots of children's toys, dvd's and all the things you could need.
We live in a peaceful area in northern Helsinki. You can reach the center of Helsinki conveniently with public transport, either by bus or by train. Within walking distance there are 3 grocery stores and playgrounds for kids. The area is very green and full of outdoor activity possibilities. Only 10 min drive to nearest shopping mall and spa. 15 minutes to Airport. There are also other interesting places to visit very near, especially with kids (airport for light air crafts, domestic animal farm, swimming lake with services, Heureka science center).
We have internet connection you can use if you have your own computer with you. Parking is available at the front of the house. You manage your stay without a car, but if you like to explore the surroundings (other than center) we recommend to rent one.
Linens. towels. kitchen utilities are included.

My name is Katariina, I live in Helsinki with my family: husband Olli and two lovely boys Pyry (6) and Pessi (3). I'm a social scientist who started recently as an entrepreneur. I (and we) love to travel and to meet new people from all walks of life. We are new to airbnb, but we have done home-exchanges during the past 3 years and loved every exchange we've had.
I'm super active, positive and outgoing "girl" who loves sports and discovering new challenges in life. On the other hand, sometimes the best thing I know is my own sofa and a good movie. I love cartoons, and now, as a mom of two small boys, I have a good excuse to watch them whenever I like. One of the most wonderful things in life nowadays is exploring the world with kids and just learning stuff together.
As your host, we try to do our best that you feel welcomed, and provide you with as much information we can. We are tidy and respectful when staying in others home, and we hope the same from our guests. Our home-exchange guests have enjoyed their stay and our hosts have given us positive feedback since our stay in their home. Feel free to contact us in any matter!
