Lovely single room near Roath Park - suitable for females

We offer a friendly family home to share with my two daughters who are good fun and nice to be around. We're in a superb location with rapid transport links to the City with a train station just 1 min away, as well as the finest Victorian park and lake five minutes away. Roath Park hosts a huge variety of birds and wildlife, it is wonderful all year round with boat hire, a cafe, rose gardens and a Victorian glass house.

The house is cosy yet spacious and we would welcome you to share all the amenities, including the hammock in the garden!

You'll have your own fridge and cupboard space and you are able to make full use of the kitchen providing you load the dishwasher after you've eaten! I would be happy to provide week day evening meals at an additional price.

Ideally looking for a Monday to Friday let rather than full-time, so please get in touch for discounted part-time rates.

About the Area

Our home is in a wonderful area just a 5 min walk from the beautiful Roath Park Lake, which is one of Cardiff's highlights. We're in a quiet residential street, just one minute walk from a train station, which will get you into the City Centre in 5 minutes. There are also NextBike stands at the end of the street should you wish to cycle anywhere, (first half hour is just £1). There are a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs within walking distance and the area is very green and pretty.

    A most pleasant stay from start to finish. Paula went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable and that all my needs were met. Everything is as described ...I took the bus, I took the train, I walked around the lake, and yes...I enjoyed spending time in the Hammock!
    You will be welcomed as part of the family, but your privacy will be requested as well.

    Thank you so much Paula for my daughter. Staying with you was great for Nadège. Your welcome and kindness were appreciated . It was a real relief to know she was so happy to stay with you.

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.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). 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?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
