Elisa was a great host, she picked us up and took us to the closest train station every time we went to Helsinki (last train at 11 pm just for info, don't count on staying out late in Helsinki if you choose this lodging, and a taxi is just astronomically expense). The cottage was simple but everything we needed. We had to walk uphill across the garden to get to their house to use the shower, toilet and kitchen, which I had not necessarily anticipated, but it was a very friendly atmosphere, and Elisa was always ready to help. May I suggest dry toilets (an outhouse) for future guests, the toilet is a bit far to go. Elisa has a dog and two cats, who are adorable, and the grounds are beautiful, in the middle of a forest literally, nature all around you. All in all, a great experience, recommended if you are on a budget, love nature and rustic settings, and don't mind really being a guest in someone's home, as you use the facilities inside their house. Elisa, once again, is lovely and so helpful.
