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.
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.

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.

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.
There is free parking space available on our yard. 2 persons + 1 child fits in the sauna building quite comfortably.
Kindly note that we wish you are a non-smoker, or at least refrain from smoking as long as you are staying with us.
We also hope that you will treat our accommodation with the same respect you'd wish your guests would show at your home.
Hello! We are Pirjo and Seppo, an active married couple who live with our chubby cat, Pottu, in the beautiful area of Vähä-Heikkilä, in Turku. In our free time, Seppo likes to renovate pretty much anything he can get his hands on, and Pirjo spends most of her time cleaning after his messes :). We are very sociable and our hobbies include occasional dieting and barbequing the rest of the time!
