Travelled as a group booking. Huge opportunity roam outside, in community areas and your own room [which are all very roomy]. Home style cooking provided by hosts primarily from their own farm or at least locally. Your hostess will certainly look after you.
If you need to escape from the noise of the city, stress of the job and cares of the world, come here and be renewed. The air is fresh; the land is peaceful; the rooms are large, modern and comfortable (we stayed in a renovated building across from the main house); the meals are delicious; and the hosts are gracious. We only spent a single night but could have easily spent a few days reading and relaxing. There's not much within walking distance but then again that's why you're here! A 3km walk through the woods will take you to a small harbor, a a small café that is open sometimes and a swimming spot.
Spent one night there, only good vibes, cosy, warm and welcoming. Nice breakfast in the morning, lovely friendly owners. Definitely recommend! Quiet and peaceful place. Interesting authentic design of the room, ours was African ) transparent door into bathroom though )) who cares
We planned to stay in historic house of Aavik but instead ended up across the road in a modern and beautifully decorated guest house from the same owners. Exotic paintings from Armenia and tapestries from Africa and Asia blended nicely with Estonian wood and embroidery. Dinner was superb and breakfast was to dream for. Cozy atmosphere, nice conversations with owners made our stay very very pleasant. We will be back
We have had an overnight stay in Aavikunurga for the second time. It is a great and peaceful place to stay. There are different houses and chalets available ... also a completely need house with rooms in the upper floor and the breakfast room below. Great people, great place, great breakfast ... always good to be there!
We arrived late afternoon between lunch and dinner time, starving and looking for a beer or wine to relax after a long day biking. The hosts scrambled up some salad, home caught fish, and red wine as in impromptu meal in the beautiful garden. Our room, in the stinking cute thatched roof building was large and comfy. Dinner that night and breakfast the next day offered many delicious hot and cold items served in their new dining hall. Eggs, cereal, breads, fish.... Grab a sauna if you can - they just need a few hours notice to heat the building. The new dog was adorable. Con: wifi not available everywhere due to the thick walls!
We stayed at the guesthouse for three nights. We picked it because it was relatively close to the ferry (35 minutes), yet not too far from the main attractions and Kuressaare (about 30 minutes), and it was very reasonably priced. The guesthouse grounds were idyllic. Our room was spacious and clean, it had a very comfortable bed, nice toilet facilities, and the shower had plenty of hot water. Our room was on the ground floor of the main house, with a private bath and shower (some rooms had shared baths). It had recently been converted into a bedroom. Prior to that it had been the breakfast room, which accounts for its spaciousness. There was a small kitchenette in the adjacent common room, with a refrigerator, sink, electric water kettle, and a supply of dishes, cups and utensils, so it was easy to keep breakfast and picnic supplies (although breakfast was also served in the new lodging facility across the road). The best part of our stay were the conversations with the owners (all three generations). We learned so much about not just the island, but about Estonia and Estonians, insights that can only be gained in this kind of informal setting where we're more like guests than customers. A few very minor negatives - We did find a couple of spiders in the bedroom. Yes, we're in the country and spiders do come with the territory and should be expected. We were hoping to see a moose in the nearby woods, but never did; the wi-fi did not reach into our room because of the thick stone walls, so we had to go outside to receive it; and the drain on the shower wasn't working right - the owner explained that it had just been installed, we were the second people to use it, and the contractor would be called in immediately to correct it. In any case, they were attentive and concerned.…
Wonderful to be able to return after a two year gap and find everything as perfect as it was the first time. Gorgeous gardens, fab food, especially the fish caught and smoked by the owners. Very friendly owners who speak excellent English. A good base to explore Saaremaa Island either by car or bicycle. I would especially recommend a trip into Kuressaare to look at the fantastically preserved medieval castle and to Koguva for the traditionally preserved fishing village. Estonia is an unusual holiday destination but a worthwhile one. Can't recommend this place enough!
We spent there only one night and was pity that we couldn't stay longer. Staff is very friendly, territory is beautiful. Dinner and breakfast was cooked from fresh homemade food. We felt free there with our dog (animals are allowed and welcome)! Highly recommend for family rest.
We extended our stay to two nights. The garden is beautiful, the lodging is nicely furnished and the breakfast was exceptional. Really good value for money and run by very nice people. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would be keen to revisit.
