Our home

I live in a 50's apartment building built for Arabia ceramic factory workers in the zany and respected design years of the 50's. The building is quiet and neighbours very helpful. My apartment has 2 bedrooms, one with a king size futon and other with a loft bed that suites for two smaller kids, one teenager or a medium size adult. Possibility to have a sofa bed underneath the loft bed.
I have a small but convenient and equipped kitchen with a table for two. In the spacious living room I have a bigger dining table for 6 person, at least. The bathroom was remade 6 months ago and so was the buildings wonderful Sauna, that is for your use, privately, every Saturday evening for two hours. Outside the living room is a balcony, headed for east, the beautiful morning sun. Nice possibility to have breakfast in the sunrise and watch trams passing slowly by.

Who we are

  1. I am a TV-producer in my late 30's. I live with my teenage daughter and a pilot fiancé. I practically spend all my time in the neighbourhood of Arabia, everything exists here I need including a nice gym and a Yoga studio. I work a lot and want to travel when I have free time. My fiancé's job as a pilot gives me a chance to see the world more frequently. I'd love to have people around the world as my guests!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Arabia is named after a world famous design ceramic factory that still functions in tis area. Of course lot's of interesting design outlet's around the corner : )
This district is also full of wonderful nature within a city: parks, oak forests, a waterfall, Viikki nature reserve for bird lovers and the seashore just 5min walk from my apartment. Because we are so close to the centre (6km) trams take you to the centre in 15 minutes. In the neighbourhood buildings can be found nice cafes, lunch restaurants, a small shopping mall, bakery etc. Even Arabia is a serene neighbourhood, vividness bring multiple art schools that exist here, everything from Aalto University’s Cinema and Design apartment to Jazz and Pop conservatory. This building has it's own garden with a sand box and swings for children. Also table and benches for having lunch outside. Next to our building is a beautiful park where I tend to spend my days off.
