About the Homestay
Our home for the last 14 years is in a desirable, quiet suburb with great transport links to the city centre. The bus stop into the city is 210metres away and the stop coming home is just 140metres. Buses run every 10 minutes and take 20 minutes to the centre (Westgate Street/Principality Stadium). The train station is 500metres away. Trains run approximately every 30 minutes and take 8 minutes to Cardiff Central. We have a large forecourt and can offer off street parking for a car or small van.
The house is very large internally and you would have nearly exclusive use of a spacious bathroom and also nearly exclusive use of a superbly comfortable lounge and TV. The bedroom available is set apart from the other bedrooms on the 1st Floor. It is a cosy double room.
It is just my wife and I who live here full time. Our adult son and daughter are away most of the time and would use another part of the house for their brief visits home.
The kitchen and laundry room would be available subject to co-ordination.
There is a large sunny garden available for sitting out in.
My wife speaks French fluently. As a couple we enjoy going to the cinema/theatre and dining out. We both cook and have a passion for good home cooked fresh food. My interests are mainly golf and rugby, whilst my wife enjoys tennis, yoga, pilates and walking.

We had an excellent stay. Stan was a great host who made us feel totally at ease in his very comfortable home.
I unfortunately became quite ill while touring Ireland and called off my visit to Wales at the last minute, to fly home instead where I now am enduring pneumonia. I really enjoyed my contacts with Stan Jones and hope to meet his family in the future. He was very gracious about my last minute cancellation which I so appreciate. Linda
