    Ronda and John are great people, made you feel welcome into their home and in a nice location. Lovely people to talk too and very helpful as to where to go for food and drink, which is a 5 minute walk down the road. Would recommend them to anyone who wants to experience a great homestay.

    I stayed with Ronda just over two weeks ago. It was my first time to Cardiff or Europe solo and my first homestay experience. Right from our first initial contact online, she was transparent and open to any questions I had. Despite my crazy 24hour journey to get to Cardiff, she went out of her way to make me feel welcome and at home. The pictures don't do justice! The room was bright, cozy, beautiful and equipped with anything one could need. I would 100% recommend this homestay to anyone near or far. She is a real, genuine gem of a lady and hostess.

    I had the most pleasant time staying with Ronda and her family for my exchange semester in Cardiff!
    The room has a high quality, is very clean and spacious and I really felt at home during my stay. Ronda and her family are lovely people who welcomed me warmly.
    I was allowed to use the kitchen and laundry facilities to my liking and Ronda was a brilliant host helping me with various things.
    I can definitely recommend her and will book again when I will be back in Cardiff.
    I really cannot say anything negative as I had the best of times.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
