It was exactly what we needed

  • 4 of 5

The flat was in a great location, we had quick access by food or car to every thing we need or wanted. The hosts were very helpful, curtious and welcoming. I would recommend it to any one, in fact we would choose it again if we return to Cardiff.

Perfect for exploring Cardiff, a gem of a place to stay. Would definitely highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful welcome from Mary & her husband. A comfortable, warm, well equipped apartment. Perfect for a long weekend for a group of "girls". Easy 20 minute walk through a lovely park to town & quick, cheap taxi ride back if needed (when lots of shopping done!). Good places to eat close by as well as in town, check out Trip Advisor for the places over the road. Cardiff a lovely place to visit, don't be put off if there is rugby on as the atmosphere was great, although we watched the game from the comfort of the apartment & the friendly pub opposite! Recommend to look for tucked away parking in the streets behind the property as not all permit spaces. A safe, friendly feel to the location. Few shops opposite for essentials, not far from a big Tescos on the drive in; good bike shop opposite too!! If you are considering this property...do it, it's great. Enjoy

The property is in excellent condition and very well equipped - worth every penny.

  • 5 of 5

The property is cozy and well-equipped with furnitures, kitchenware, and other necessities. We felt right at home the moment we stepped into the property. The owner was very welcoming and helpful too. The property is suitable for both short and long term stay. Overall, we left feeling satisfied and well-rested.
