CHARMING OLD SCHOOL AS AN BEST AIRBNB EXPERIENCE – TURKU, FINLAND
What is your best Airbnb experience? Mine happened just a while ago in Turku, Finland.
The struggle is real when you are travelling to Turku and would want to find a unique and/or personal and authentic place to stay. The truth is that there are not so many great hotels that have a personality in Turku, Finland.
Thanks to Airbnb I found a gem!
I was holding a flower & photography workshop together with my friend Erika from Helmivillakko in Brinkhall’s manor. I needed a place to stay for one night and I was not so happy to go to any hotel chains this time.
I’ve been browsing the Airbnb website a lot but always ended up staying in a hotel when travelling abroad. This time it was an easy choice to make when I saw Saana & Olli’s house; photos of the old school house were intriguing.
Btw, this was my first Airbnb experience! And it was perfect!
Saana & Olli – the owners and designers
When you look at the photos from the house, you had to love their modern white bathroom. And I had to test their bathtub as I think it is so cool! Actually, I think the whole bathroom might be my favourite room in the whole house. I loved that modern look with lots of green plants.
Cold weather outside – it’s autumn in Finland
When I was staying it was a bit cold outside so if you’re not so used to old houses I recommend that you’ll take some warm clothes with you. I’m really used to old houses and the fact that they are almost always a bit chilly. For me, the temperature inside was really ok but I know that someone might think that it’s a bit cold.
I think the only negative thing about my stay was that I had to leave after one night and that my stay was so short. I basically just slept there, went to a bathtub and drank some tea (and took some photos in a dark Finnish evening!).
The renovated house is full of interesting details and I would have loved to photograph them all…hah hah.
I bet the place is really beautiful in the summertime as the house was surrounded by a lovely looking garden. And then there’s the river, too!
The house is not in the city centre but I found the location to be just perfect if you’re coming with your own/rented car. There’s a free parking space available which was really convenient.
I think you already guessed it but I, of course, will recommend this place for anyone who visits Turku and want to stay in a bit different place than a normal (boring) hotel room.
