House in Helsinki, Finland

We have already booked a home exchange to Iceland for summer 2018. We'll get back to summer 2019 later!

Our house is located in friendly area in eastern Helsinki and it's a traditional finnish house from 1950's.
The house is surrounded by a nice garden, where we have good facilities for barbeque and a small playhouse for children.
We have a good variety of toys and childrend's equipment, that we are happy to borrow for all our quests.
There are pretty good cycling routes in Helsinki and we have few bikes for adults and children..
In the house we have four bedrooms , two in upstairs and two in donwstairs. There are two toilets and a bathroom with sauna. We have three tv's, one with a playstation.
Even if there is a good public transportation in Helsinki we are interested to exchange cars.
If you are interested in Scandinavia and Finland we look forward to your message.
