The SpaceThis 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 AccessThis 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 GuestsYou 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. Getting AroundThe location of the building is ideal, since it’s situated in a quiet, serene neighborhood of (mostly) wooden houses, but is located only 2,5 km from the city center. The river Aura is only a couple of blocks away, and you can walk along it all the way to the city center, surrounded by the iconic river view. There is a bus stop just one block away, with buses passing by every few minutes to take you to the city. The nearest shop is about 400m away. Other Things to NoteThere is free parking space available on our yard. 2 persons + 1 child fits in the sauna building quite comfortably.
