Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, Kitchen Dining room, Bathrooms, and Courtyard - All yours.

The location of my place is just the best!! - Everything you need is closeby, just walk there in a few minutes. My place is just 3 minutes walk from the restaurant voted the 2nd best in the world, 1 minutes walk from the Grafton indoor shopping centre with a vast array of shops and a multi-screen cinema complex. There's a fantastic choice of restaurants and pubs less than 2 minutes walk. Midsummer common is 2 minutes walk and so is the River Cam. You can watch rowing, or walk further up to watch punting and take part yourself. Cambridge University colleges are all around, you'll love the fantastic Cambridge atmosphere as soon as you step out the door, its buzzing! - Yet inside is quiet and tranquil.

Many places, say they are central, but my place really is. Cambridge University is all around me. Jesus college and Christs college are less than 5 minutes walk, Sidney Sussex, Emmanuel are a little more, Trinity and Kings, about 10 minutes, even closer are Parker's Piece, Christs Pieces, Midsummer Common, The River and Jesus Green (all less than 5 minutes). Also nearby are numerous free museums and you have a huge array of quirky restaurants and coffee houses. Supermarkets such as Waitrose is less than 3 minutes walk and Tesco and Sainsbury's a little further, ideal for getting supplies. Opposite the property is the beautiful Christ Church with regular events and music. Just around the corner is a wonderful traditional English Gastro Pub with modern tasty food options and lots of beers and wines. There is a multi screen cinema complex less than 2 minutes walk.

There's access to a fully fitted kitchen with cooker, fridge freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, dishwasher, washing machine, dining table and chairs, a rear courtyard which is a sun trap, downstairs toilet, upstairs bathroom with bath and powerful shower over, toilet and wash hand basin, plus of course the two bedrooms. You have use of a comfortable sofa in the main bedroom to relax and watch the television.

WiFi is very fast and the carpets are thick and sumptuous. The mattresses are thick and extremely comfortable. Main bedroom has double bed, smart HD TV with internet, chest of drawers, sofa, bedside tables and lamps and all the usual stuff to make you as comfortable as possible. The other bedroom has a single bed and a fold up bed if needed, wardrobe with hangers, armchair and TV. There's a vacuum cleaner and iron and ironing board you can use. You have access to both of these bedrooms. WiFi is available for as many devices as you want to connect and it's very fast.

This is a fantastic neighbourhood consisting of local residents mixed with Cambridge university students. Bicycles all over the place add to the character, this is inside the inner ring road so once you are here you have everything you need on your doorstep. Its an extremely safe and tranquil area, with no crime at all. The street is quiet and a church is opposite the property, but you only have to walk to the end of the street and you will find the buzzing atmosphere of Cambridge all around.

About Graham

I have lived in Cambridge for the last 7 years and I love it. My place is in a fantastic neighbourhood consisting of local residents mixed with Cambridge university students. Bicycles all over the place add to the character, this is inside the inner ring road so once you are here you have everything you need on your doorstep. Its an extremely safe and tranquil area, with no crime at all. The street is quiet and a church is opposite the property, but you only have to walk to the end of the street and you will find the buzzing atmosphere of Cambridge all around. I am so lucky to have purchased such a lovely place in such an amazing location, its so good that I want others to have the chance to experience it and this wonderful city.

Comfortable stay in a very good location

  • 5 of 5

Graham is an excellent host. Although we did not get a chance to meet him, we received excellent instructions about the property and all questions were quickly answered. I was truly impressed with the ongoing information sharing. Any messages I sent were quickly answered.

The property is comfortable and convenient. It is just a short walk to the university and the town center. I was there for a conference at Downing College, and the walk was only 10 minutes, tops. The bus stop is only about a block away. It is a short bus ride to the train station. Grocery and other stores are very short walk from the front door. We found everything we needed at the shops just a couple of blocks away.

I highly recommend this rental. I will look here again if I return to Cambridge!

Perfect location in Cambridge Centre

  • 5 of 5

Up to date apartment with all conveniences, including microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and more. Obviously the place has recently been refurbished and is very well turned out. The location is extremely close (1 min) to Grafton Centre with one of the best shopping areas in Cambridge, yet lies in a very quiet street opposite a nice church in a safe area. If you feel like it you can walk into the historical part of Cambridge with the colleges etc. in 5-10 minutes, or you can do the scenic route walking along the Cam river past Midsummer Common and Jesus Green. Graham is very friendly and always available for communication. He makes sure that you know everything you need for your stay to be a good one.

perfext location

  • 5 of 5

We waked everywhere since the location is amazing. We walked to the river to go "Punting", walked to shops and restaurants and also walked to the swimming pool which was fantastic. We spent loads of time in the park at the tennis courts and our kids played football at the park. Best location.

unkompliziert und alles super außer Platz für Tisch in der Küche

  • 4 of 5

In der Küche ist zu wenig Platz für den Tisch und man muss sich etwas einfallen lassen, damit man zu dritt um den Tisch sitzen kann. Wir haben den Tisch vor den Unterschränken neben dem Ofen platziert damit wir zu dritt sitzen können.

Die Lage des Hauses ist sehr gut. Man kann fußläufig in die Stadt gehen ca. 15 Minuten, zum bahnhof sind es ca. 25/30 Minuten und das Waitrose w/ Brot bzw. Brötchen zum Frühstücken sind nur ca. 5 Minuten entfernt.

Graham ist sehr nett sowie zuvorkommend/hilfsbereit und antwortet sehr schnell auf Anfragen.
