This is a unique opportunity to experience the Finnish way of living. Our sauna building was originally built in the 50’s, but has been fully renovated in 2014, most of it by Seppo himself.

The space

This is a unique opportunity to experience the Finnish way of living. Our sauna building was originally built in the 50's, but has been fully renovated in 2014, mostly by Seppo himself. We wanted to preserve the genuine feeling of the era the sauna was built, and have used recycled and authentic materials. The sauna works with proper firewood, not with electricity, and we would be happy to show you how to light a proper Finnish “löyly". Apart from the great atmosphere, one of the benefits of a real firewood sauna is that the heat of the löyly is more tolerable by being softer and more humid, making it an ideal experience for guests who are not used to going to the sauna.
The house has everything you need, including basic kitchen appliances (coffee maker, electronic stove, toaster, cutlery etc.) and we also provide towels and bedsheets.

Guest access

This private sauna building is ideal for maximum of 2 guests at a time (or 2 adults + 1 child). It comes with a fully furnished bedroom (including a sofa bed with a mattress, kitchenette, small mudroom and an authentic (non-electric) sauna with a warm-water shower and toilet. This cute room also has a small fireplace (not usually needed since the building also has electric radiators).

The kitchenette has a hotplate, a microwave, a fridge and is fully equipped with cutlery, plates, mugs etc.
If you wish to do some laundry, you may use our washing machine for an extra fee of 3€/load. We provide laundry detergents for your convenience. If you're staying for a longer period of time, we offer you one free wash load per week. Ask for more information! :)

In addition to the kitchenette, there is a kitchen table and chairs in the room. For entertainment, there is a flat screen tv in the room and you are of course welcome to use our WiFi connection during your stay.

There is a small patio right outside the building, and you are also welcome to use the larger patio which belongs to the main house. Barbecuing is possible on the larger patio until late autumn.

Interaction with guests

You will have plenty of privacy at our residence, but we will of course be happy to help you with anything that you need help with during your stay, so if you have any questions at all, feel free to come and ask! We live in the main house built in the late 1800's, a few steps from the sauna building, so we are nearly always at your disposal if you need anything.

Other things to note

There is free parking space available on our yard. 2 persons + 1 child fits in the sauna building quite comfortably.

Wireless Internet
Free parking on premises

We also hope that you will treat our accommodation with the same respect you'd wish your guests would show at your home.

Everything was great. I"ll probably will stay again. If you stay in this great place, use the bikes that owners suggest to use. It is so much convenient and wonderful to reach everything by bicycles.

The accomodation in Pirjo and Seppos little cabin was perfect! They have a separated cabin on their property which consists of everything you need - bed, kitchen (stove, microwave, fridge, coffeemaker, ...) and living room in one room and the bathroom including shower plus the greatest thing - the sauna! It was all prepared when we arrived, I wrote with Pirjo on airbnb and she left the key in a small safe, attached to the cabin. So we could actually check in whenever we wanted. There was some bread and cheese in the fridge, fruits on the table and coffee and teas. All Information you need when you arrive are written in the front pages of the guestbook, which is also filled up with lovely entries from all the guests. The bicycles are pumped and ready to go and after our first biketour through Turku we also found the sauna prepared, so we only had to light the firewood and wait some time :) All in all it was a very very comfortable stay, Turku is a nice place to bike around and the museums ships and the castle are totally worth visiting :) When coming back to Turku, we would most probably go back to Pirjo and Seppos little cabin :)

We loved our stay at this cottage in Turku! The hosts are wonderful, the location ideal (it's walkable, yet in a quiet neighborhood), and the sauna is an added bonus. We recommend staying here, and would love to visit again some day in the future.

Pirjo and Seppo have a cute little cabin with a very modern bath and sauna inside. All rooms were very clean and we found everything we needed. The bikes are very useful to go to the city or Ruissalo. The hosts gave us a lot of tips what we need to see. We enjoyed our stay very much. Did we mentioned that the sauna is so great?

The sauna cabin was part of what made our trip to Turku as wonderful as it was! Everything was comfortable and clean, there were toys for the baby and some snacks waiting for us when we arrived. The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet and green and a nice walk from the center, along the river (or a short bus ride). Pirjo was very kind and helpful to us, and gave us tips and recommendations. We were sad to leave and if we ever come back to Turku, we will definitely want to come back to this cabin!

I had a great stay in the sauna cottage. It is fully equipped with all needed and I enjoyed the sauna a lot. That's great to be able to use the bike to discover Turku city which is really nice. Pirjo and Seppo gave me a lot of useful information and I didn't get lost thanks to them :) thank you very much! I would definitely recommend this airbnb, that's the best place to stay in Turku!

Nice, quiet 'getaway' little out of the center, but with the bikes it is just a few minutes. Hosts were so kind and helpful with anything and the location is in a nice, quiet, green part of town close to the river/city canal. Highly recommended!
