This flat was just fabulous! Very well situated, minutes away from Cardiff Bay train station and in the heart of the action on the bay. The apartment itself is well decorated, very clean and comfortable. I highly recommend this flat, if you're looking to stay in the Cardiff Bay area.

Fabulous Cardiff Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled upon arrival! So impressive, it was like staying in a penthouse suite. Public transportation, history, arts & entertainment, restaurants, groceries and everything you could need literally at your doorstop. The pier provides a wonderful atmosphere and our kids noticed the ferris wheel (seasonal) when we were landing at the Cardiff airport. A fun location that we did not expect, but so enjoyed! John, the owner was welcoming and attentive to our needs. Having travelled and stayed in VRBO in Edinburgh, Dublin, Bayeux, Paris and London on our trip - Cardiff was the 5 Star! The accommodations were the cleanest of all our accommodations, with new appliances - nicest washing machine with huge drying rack! As a family of 4 we had plenty of space. Wales is truly a hidden gem. The tourism industry has not tapped into this incredible part of the U.K. We toured castles with a tour company "Real Wales Tours", Nia Knotts really knows Wales and helped me see the parts of Wales my family is from, we booked a personalized tour. Real Wales Tours also has planned Wales tours, be sure to check their website. We took the Hop on Hop Off around Cardiff, just out front of our accommodations and toured Cardiff including the Cardiff Castle (mild lineups). The bus transit system is easy to use and the Welsh are so friendly, happy to help figure out your busing. Be sure to take the bus out to St Fagan's, a great day outing for the entire family. We can't wait to come again and would not hesitate to book with John. Too bad Canada is so far away 😢. Booking was simple and John was happy to answer questions over the phone or through email. The damage deposit was refunded promptly. Thank you John.

A lovely apartment with everything you need, very clean and well kept.

No on-site parking but 2 multistory car parks close by.

The owner John Janos very good to deal with after we had problems with Homeaway questioning our payments.

Would stay here again.

Stunning property with amazing facilities. Very spacious and comfortable and right on the bay

  • 4 of 5

Loved the property and the location. It was in walking distance of everything in the bay.

Very clean and well presented property. Will definitely stay again.

(would have given 5 star but bit of confusion trying to get the keys which was frustrating)

Highly recommend property!!!

Very comfortable and clean, with good facilities

Fooled by garage on list as you have to click on it to reveal that there isn't one and when I mentioned garage the landlord kept quiet. We did find a dodgy nabourhood to leave park in or it would have been £20 for 12 hrs in mermaid carpark.

Don't have a bath or you will have no hot water till the next day.

A bit noisy if you leave the window open, but we didn't mind.

But as a location without a car, it couldn't be better.

Owner's Response: Sorry the parking was not as expected. We always clearly state when requested that there is no specific allocated parking with this apartment in our building. However there are many options for parking directly in the area to satisfy all needs, most of them at a cost ( generally reasonable market rates ) others can be free at times. Thank you for the feedback, we will investigate as to the best parking options available to visitors.

Not to be trusted

  • 1 of 5

This property includes a damage deposit as a condition of rental. The owner has failed to return ours despite several entreaties to do so and fails to answer messages from the site. DON'T STAY HERE.

Owner's Response: Sorry I was not available to respond immediately. Due to an error in transfer the first return failed, on being made aware of this the bond was immediately authorized for payment a second time. Again sincerest apologise, no bond will be requested next time.
