For more information about using and renting the wood-heated hot outdoor tub please see Kivikoski Hot Tub. When using the hot tub, please remember always to fill in the tub and only after that to set fire to the hot tub stove!

The holiday home has two saunas

The holiday home features two saunas; a wood-heated sauna in the main building and a separate panoramic sauna by the river. The cottage sauna is included in the rent. The glass frame sauna by the river can be rented at 45 euros per day. For more information on the use of a riverside sauna from the Kivikoski sauna- link.

From the main building sauna there is a path to the beach with a pier. The pier has a bathing ladder. The river flow is weak, so swimming and bathing is comfortable. The river bottom in the end of the pier is muddy, but next to the pier there is a small sandy beach and the swimming area there has a sandy bottom.


Kivikoski holiday home offers opportunities for boating and for fishing. Rowing boat is included in the rent at no additional charge. The river flow is weak so rowing and canoeing on the river is also comfortable. By the river you can get the sea. The sea can be reached via a manually operated river-lock.

The Kivikoski holiday home is suitable for holidays also in the wintertime

Kivikoski holiday home is ideal for holidays and accommodation for all year round. The river often stays open until the end of December, and what’s more awesome than taking a dip in the refreshing river water from the moist warmth of the sauna. The river is often frozen in January, but if you want, you can make an opening into the ice at the end of the pier.

Customer feedback from Kivikoski guests

“This cottage is really beautiful. The house is wonderful and the interior very nice. We immediately felt at home. The cabin is close to the river and the cabin has a hot outdoor tub, a glass sauna, and a wood-heated cabin sauna. We had a barbecue outside. We had a wonderful evening and a lot of fun. The beds were very comfortable, we slept great.” (German customers, 10/2022)

“Great area, with beautiful landscape and a beautiful pavilion with an electric sauna. The double bed is in a separate house. If a larger group is staying at the cabin, a separate sleeping shed is ok, but for two with a dog, it’s disturbing because all the nice things like sauna, fireplace and kitchen and shower are in another building. (Russian customers, 01/2020)

“A relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting. The indoor sauna was spacious, atmospheric and it got warm quickly. The dining table was large and the couch was spacious. The courtyard was really beautiful and quiet. The kitchen had bad pans and knives. There was too little space for winter clothes. Sleeping in the loft required a bit of agility. ”(Finnish customers, 02/2019) Following this feedback, a new frying pan has been purchased for the cottage. There was already a knife sharpener in the box.

“A great option for a winter holiday. The cottage is a former hunting lodge brought from Russia. Cool taiga style of huge logs. This is not for lovers of white-washed walls and urban comfort. But everything you need in the cottage is present, including a dishwasher and washer. There are two houses. The main building consists of a living room, kitchen, bedroom for two, toilet, wood bath and two bedroom beds on small lofts. And the second building is a small one with three beds and a toilet. There is an electric sauna with glass walls by the pier. Suitable only for relaxation and for those who do not like high temperature. It has a maximum of +50. There is a gas grill for meat – a great thing, especially in winter. There is a faint noise coming from the nearby highway, but it’s absolutely not critical. The only disadvantages in my opinion, this shower located directly in the sauna is not the best solution, especially when a large company. And in a small house it would be nice to install a warm floor in the living room instead of radiators.”(Russian customers 01/2019)

“The cottage was just like in the pictures. Minna could not come to the cottage, but another representative of the rental company took care of it. We enjoyed the cottage very well. The indoor sauna was really nice and the fire was warm. Communicating was easy and quick. The keys waited on the spot, so it was easy to come. The only thing that hindered was the prices of additional services and if it had been cleaned (about 160 €), bed clothes (15 € / person) and the hot tub (70 € + 70 €) then the price would have almost tripled. These yes read in the announcement, but still hard prices for additional services. All in all, the cottage worked very well in our use. ” (Finnish customers, Air BnB booking 10/2017) After this feedback, the cleaning price is dropped to 95 euros.

“Perfect place! Many beds. Very cozy. Gorgeous location. Two saunas. Fireplace with gazebo. Propane grill, chic. I liked everything very much. Only one of the minuses, a mouse came at night.” (Russian customers 01/2017)

“Great experience, great cottage, enviroment, services, and very good attention from the owner.” (Spanish customers AirBNB 10/2016)

“This Kivikoski cottage was the first cottage that I will take my family too. The buildings were well taken care of and the lawn had been cut. The beds were decent. There were plenty of dishes for cooking. The sauna in the main building was spacious and the glass sauna was a unique experience. Also a campfire and a generous terrace area was nice, the weather was nice, and we were able to take advantage of terraces. This was the first time we enjoyed the Hot tub very much. But the knife sharpening device would be useful and also instructions with decent pictures about the hut tub bottom valve would be useful.” (Finnish customers, e-mail feedback 09/2016)

“Minna was helpful and kindly answered my questions. The place was a cozy and clean, and foreign guests fell in love with the cottage. Sauna, boat and river were awesome combination. In other words, the location is really good. Of course, the neighboring house is very close but since you can not see the cottage from teh yard, it does not bother. Beach electric sauna did not work properly or we just did not know how to use it.” (Finnish customers, AirBNB 07/2016)

“Genuine wooden cottage, which has plenty of cooking and kitchen utensils. Lovely sauna. The cottage loft bed is just under the roof. Loft is accessed by a ladder. To my 5-year-old boy the loft was an interesting place to play at. Wi-Fi works without a password. But the dishwasher did not work immediately. To make it work, you must turn the faucet over the sink. In the technical specifications there was an e-mail address and the answer from the Director came almost immediately.” (Russian customers 01/2016)

“Everything was set-up as requested. Sauna, hot outdoor tub and the cottage where nice and warm. Super nice cabin that easily accommodated 5 person in the main cabin and there would have been room for 2 or 3 more people in the small cabin. Place was easy to find, just few km of from the highway, but still quiet and calm environment.”(Suomalaiset asiakkaat AirBNB 10/2015)

“Everybody were happy! Great location. Expressive natural wooden cottage and a hut were an aesthetic pleasure.” (Russian customers 10/2015)

“We had a lot of fun at Villa Kivikoski. The house is cozy and comfortable, and the place is perfect. The reality exceeded our expectations. Thanks a lot! We will definitely recommend Villa Kivikoski holidays to our friends.”(Russian guests,, feedback by e-mail 08/2015)

“Stylish and functional. Well-equipped. Water plants should be taken away from the end of the pier.” (Finnish guests, 08/2015)

“Excellent holiday. Beautiful views, and a good location close to the E18 road. ABC supermarket nearby. Cottage in a sheltered place. Mushrooms, berries, fishing. The neighbors within sight. Cozy comfortable home by a river and all city amenities.” (Venäläiset asiakkaat 08/2015)

“I fell in love at first sight! New Villa Kivikoski is definitely the most beautiful cottage I’ve ever seen.❤ The cottage is small but the space has been brilliantly used. Sauna is a big plus!” (Finnish customers, Facebook 04/2015)
