    Comfortable rental homes in Helsinki

    Helsinki is a beautiful and lively residential city. Modern Helsinki, the capital of Finland, plays a key role in Finland's business and economy, which is why there are many jobs in Helsinki. Helsinki is an international, open and secure European capital with a good location on the Baltic Sea.

    Helsinki has been awarded the World Design Capital Award in 2012 and UNESCO's City of Design in 2014. Around the world, Helsinki is known for its innovation, high-tech achievements, seaworthiness, architecture, cleanliness and security. The Cathedral, the Market Square and Suomenlinna are some of the city's most famous sights.

    Sea and nature

    In Helsinki, the sea is everywhere, and the outdoor islands are open to every citizen. The islands are easily accessible by ferries and the sea beaches are at the guests' disposal. Nature is also close to downtown, and the 1000-hectare green park stretches from Töölönlahti to northern Helsinki. Each residential area in Helsinki has its own outdoor areas, so the natural ambience of the city is maintained throughout the summer and winter.
    Good public transport and excellent services

    Helsinki is a good place to live as the city offers its residents well-functioning public transport and good services that are easily accessible from all over Helsinki. For example, children's day care, schools and health centres are close to everyone.

    Even if your own home is located further from the centre of Helsinki, the train, bus, metro or tram can be reached quickly. Urban planning has also invested in light traffic routes, so many Helsinki residents make their commute by bike.
    Lumo rental apartment in Helsinki

    Helsinki will find a suitable home for everyone. Apartment living is a Helsinki-style way of living, but it is also possible to live in suburban houses in the suburbs. If you want to live right in the centre of Helsinki, you will often have fewer living quarters than the more remote ones. Helsinki rentals are located around the city, and Lumo rentals are available to single, couples and families.

    Helsinki has many new development areas, but there is also more construction in existing residential areas. Your Lumo rental home in Helsinki can be located in an old 50's traditional stone house, a modern new apartment building or anywhere in between.

    Downtown Lumo Rentals

    There are several Lumo rental apartments near the centre of Helsinki. For example, Punavuori, Töölö and Kallio are the most traditional residential areas in Helsinki. Each of them has its own atmosphere that is unique to the place. Pasila is located a few minutes by train from the city centre, and is also a popular residential area for those who want to be near the city centre.

In addition to its maritime location, Kalasatama's and Hernesaari's trump cards are in the immediate vicinity of Helsinki city centre. The traditional Lauttasaari Island just south of Helsinki is also a popular residential area, and Lauttasaari Lumo Rentals are well located for services. Merihaka is a traditional residential area especially for students to rent and the tram to the city centre takes only a few minutes.

    Cozy rental accommodation by the metro line in eastern Helsinki

    Vuosaari, the largest residential area in Helsinki, as well as Rastila, Kontula, Itäkeskus, Herttoniemi, Vartiokylä and Roihuvuori, are located close to the metro line in eastern Helsinki.

    Green suburbs in central and northern Helsinki

    Central and northern Helsinki are attracted by their beautiful parks and good outdoor areas.
