Decks for new apartments

Enjoy the fresh sea air and the sounds of the ocean from your private deck. All of our new apartments (Standard Studio Apartments, Deluxe Studio Apartments, and Deluxe One-Bedroom Apartments) now have private decks. Take in the sight and sounds of the sea from your deck in our Deluxe Apartments, or peace and quiet in the courtyard from our Standard Studio Apartments. Now that the decks have been built, private hot tubs for the Deluxe apartments are coming soon! Each Deluxe apartment will have its own hot tub on the deck. Our older apartments, the Standard One-Bedroom Apartments, don’t have decks, but they have plenty of space inside.

We have now opened our latest addition to Bakki Hostel and Apartments, three new Deluxe One-Bedroom Apartments. Featuring all-new construction and sleek Scandinavian design, these apartments are perfect for couples or families. The spacious bedroom features a large double/king size bed or two single beds, a wardrobe, and a flat-panel TV with Roku. The living area has a sofa that opens to a double/full bed, a dining area, and another TV with Roku. In the kitchen, you will find an induction cooktop, toaster, Senseo coffee maker, kettle, built-in refrigerator, and microwave. The bathroom has a spacious rain shower.

Bakki Hostel open house a great success

On May 14, 2015, Bakki Hostel & Apartments opened the doors to the brand new hostel for an open house. Over 100 guests attended, where the slide show of the building’s 70-year history was made to a standing-room-only crowd of all ages that filled the space. Not bad for a small hostel in a town of 500 people! We were overwhelmed by the support from the community and proud to show what we have accomplished since tackling the construction in this part of the building last autumn (the apartments have been open for booking since last summer). We are putting the finishing touches on the place and will be opening for business soon!
