Our holiday paradise is located in a very peaceful area, 40 minutes from downtown Helsinki and 50 minutes from the airport, at the famous Porkkala peninsula. It opens towards the open seas, has 160 meters seashore towards south, west and north. The fantastic open views bring a lot of south-western winds which guarantee that mosquitoes are not frequent visitors in this place.
“I assume you all know this song by Led Zeppelin... "stairway to heaven". Look no further, you have found heaven here and the stairways to get there. We spent 5 days at Johanna's awesome place and found it to be a dream location. Leave the car behind and go down the few steps to find an oasis of everything Finland has to offer. Awesome ocean view with an unforgettable sunsets (viewable from the living room with huge windows, from the sauna or just by sitting on the rocks), complete silence (besides some fish that jump out of the water every now and then), privacy, nature (trees everywhere!), a well equipped kitchen, stuff for the kids to play in and with, and too many other things. You really don't need to get to the car and could stay here forever. Well, ok some groceries you may need. but in the nearby marina there is a little shop with basics and a great place to have dinner in the summer season. And if you really miss city life you can be in downtown Helsinki within the hour. We have been warmly and personally welcomed upon arrival and received the grand tour of the property. It's a bit bigger than our garden at home so a lot to explore. Oh, one thing worth mentioning. Drive slowly everywhere as the wildlife is amazing and you don't want to miss that or bump into the deer that seem to live everywhere on the peninsula. Unfortunately we had to climb up the stairway to return home. From now on, listening to Led Zeppelin will bring back all the great memories from our vacation. This place is going to be hard to beat... highly recommended is the only thing to finish with. Thanks for the experience! ”
