Holidays up from the first moment

For a good reason, Kaidan Kiho holiday homes can be considered “all-inclusive”. We carefully listened to our guests’ requests and adjusted our services as well as the equipment of our holiday homes to them.

What other holiday home allows you to start into your holidays just as you like right after arriving? You might take a nap – fresh linen has been put on your bed. You might also make yourself a tea or coffee – the respective equipment available. You might like a match and make a fire in the sauna oven, fireplace or barbeque hut. The firewood is ready and waiting for you. The sauna towels available make the pleasure perfect. You may row the boat out onto the lake or make of the use its readily loaded electric motor. Fishing can be started at the private beach.

And when your holiday comes to an end you don’t have to clean up – we’ll do the final cleaning for you.

Additional services

As additional service, we offer the famous smoke sauna at Kaidan Kunkku, which can be used until early in the mornings. For all holiday homes, a whirlpool – optionally self- or readily heated – can be rent.

Furthermore, there is a sauna on the beach, a barbecue hut, electric motors, bathrobes, bicycles, ski boots, and Karaoke equipment. The woods and the lake offer great opportunities for various activities. Fishing trips to Saimaa including fishing permit and trips to the surrounding landscape can be organized in accordance with the guests’ special requests.

At a little extra fee, landlady Leena serves breakfast, coffee or meals previously ordered right at the holiday home. It is an adventure watching your host Esko making grilled salmon on the open fire in the barbecue hut or taking a look at the nets underneath the icy surface in winter.

And when your holiday comes to an end you don’t have to clean up – we’ll do the final cleaning for you.

Suomen kartta

You don’t have to waste your precious holiday time on “inspiriting” the holiday home – instead, enjoy your stay up from the very first moment.

Eco-friendly luxury holiday

Enjoy eco-friendly luxury holiday homes: Welcome to pleasant holidays or unusual congresses at Kaidan Kiho. Relax with a clear conscience in luxury holiday homes – we observe ecological aspects in their planning and their upkeeping.

The building materials were primarily chosen for their eco-friendliness – the holiday homes’ technological installations were selected on the same base while ensuring unaltered convenience. 


Esko’s family has been living on the Tuukkala farm since 1710. Leena and Esko have now been running the farm since 1986. The dairy farm was turned into a tourist business after the Kaidan Kunkku holiday home had been completed in 2005. Within just a few years, the farm was converted into a B&B and the cattle were abandoned. In winter 2013, the tourist business was extended by 3 new holiday homes – Kilpikonna, Valmuska and Hapero. In 15 driving minutes distance to the farm, there are now 4 holiday homes. Kaidan Kunkku‘s barbecue hut was built from timber formerly used for buildings demolished on Tuukkala farm. At the end of the 19th century, this building was used as a dairy. Originally, it used to accommodate a bakery in the center of Ristiina. The Ristiina region has verifiably already been populated 5,000 years ago. This is shown by the prehistoric petroglyphs of Astuvansalmi, which are half an hour to drive on country roads.
