“Marvelous place with the best host in the South of Finland”

I was lucky to spend some wonderful days on Jaakko place in Kirkkonummi on the South of Finland. I was very pleased to start discovering of Finland from this secluded and totally natural corner of the world. The calmness of the place, the breathing of the sea, snug rustic house create the fairy atmosphere of the timeless and eternity. Special and grateful feelings to Jaakko for making this real and for the incomparable help starting from the very beginning and till the minutes of our departure, for the support with any transportation questions, for the transfer from and to Helsinki by car and by boat, for the very comfy and healthy sauna, nice and cosy room and just for the involvement and readiness to help at any time.

Wow, what a place! We had the most fantastic stay here, totally tranquil and relaxing and some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. Jaakko was the most fantastic host, helped show us how to light the sauna, picked us up from the station, always available to answer questions and give you the 'real' Finland experience. He took us out on his boat around the archipelago which we highly recommend, truly beautiful and perfect way to see a part of Finland away from all of the tourists! Carlos and Sophie, the two family Rottweilers are lovely company too!The only reason for the less than perfect review is that the cabin would really benefit from some TLC and upgrading so the stay is a little more luxurious and a little less rough and ready. Absolutely recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all!

We were in Southern Finland for one week and had booked this cottage for a two day break between hotels in Helsinki. It was easy to get to by train and Jaakko met us at the station, there was a market nearby were we were able to get what we needed for our two night stay. The cabin was spotless, the amenities were all included and jaaakko could not of been more helpful. The location was beautiful, very private, if we ever go back to Finland we would stay here again.

to sumit up: It was great staying in Jaakko’s place! This cottage is a cute perfect finnish „Moekki“ (cottage) for a relaxed stay in the nature, and it offers good privacy.
It’s just a short ride out of Helsinki (35min), but you are completely in the nature and the beautiful country side of the area Kirkkonummi and close to the the half island Porkkala.

The interior of the cottage is nice fresh-bright and clean, has everything (kitchen utensils) you need to handle a meal is there.
The view through the panorama window on the sea is great, really relaxing, just as nice as the terrace. The Sauna is perfect even by the finish standards: New, with a warm shower, a window with view on the lake in which we jumped after the sauna to refresh. Jakkoo provided clean towels and bathrobes and all kinds of shower gels/shampoo/lotions were in the sauna/shower.

We used the BBQ to grill some sausages on the terrace. And Jakkoo also offered us to take us with the boat out into the archipelago, which we would have done absolutely, if we had one more day, but unfortunately we had to return to Helsinki.

It’s a great relaxing place, which I can recommend to everyone who wants a nice relaxed time in Finnland, just a short ride out of helsinki (even if you do not have a car: Jakkoo told us, he would be glad, to pick us up at the trains station of Kirkkonummi, if we did’not come by car). But I’d recommend to come by (rental) car, so you can make some excursions in the surrounding area (the half-Island Porkkala is beautiful, for example)
Bring some beers, some food and sausages to throw on the bbq. And you will have a good time.
