Rantakari Guest Reviews
“The scenery was BEAUTIFUL. And in addition to the wonderful morning views, we managed to see wonderful sunsets and sunrises + nightly lightning and good rumbles on top – in December 🙂 The only thing I missed (and only for a while), was a dish drying cabinet or rack, because I like to wash dishes by hand. But the dishwasher worked well and there were enough dishes” (Finnish customers, Booking.com 12/2022)
“Spacious cottage with wonderful scenery. A very good Finnish sauna and the possibility of ice-swimming right at the end of the pier. A spacious cabin and many nice roads for walking the dog. It was difficult to go into the opening without a ladder, but we understand that they would freeze in place in the winter when they are not used… It’s just good to remember that getting into and out of icy water without a ladder is a bit of a challenge!” (Finnish customers, Booking.com 12/2022)
“Wonderful glazed terrace for bad weather and an open terrace for good weather. You could have sat on the terrace for hours staring at the sea and watching the birds. A really good and fast wood-heated sauna. The head of the kitchen would have liked a bigger kitchen, but yes, we managed by organizing it. (Finnish customers, Booking.com 7/2022)
“The cottage was really lovely, equipped with incredibly beautiful scenery! There was no need to turn on the television, the view of the sea was enough. In the kitchen you could find everything you needed for eating and you could have a good soak in the wooden sauna. It was easy to come and be with the dogs. Will definitely come here again.
Only one car can fit in the yard” (Finnish customers, Booking.com 03/2022)
“All amenities mentioned in the description correspond 100% to reality! Thank you for a nice holiday! BBQ tools need to be replaced. A swimming ladder is needed.” (Russian customers, Booking.com 01/2020) Service response: Thank you for your feedback. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed your vacation. I’m sorry about the BBQ tools, we will get new ones right away. And unfortunately during the winter months we can’t keep the swimming ladder in the water because the sea can freeze overnight and the ice can break the ladder and the wooden pier easily. Therefore, between December and February, the swimming stairs are not in use. I am sorry.
“Very nice cottage with a beautiful view directly to the sea. Own jetty, nice wood-fired sauna, porch and large gas grill. Good condition and nicely equipped. Would love to return. Please note that cleaning is not included in the price, but cleaning items are available for those who want to clean themselves (that was no problem). Double bed on the lower floor, one double bed and three single beds on the loft. Good blackout curtains.” (Swedish customers, Hotels.com 07/2019)
