Depending on the time of year, please do not feel offended if I say no to a 4 week stay. Short stays are more welcomed.
***Just to make it very clear to the paying public - Homestay will not reduce the price of your booking and deposit paid if a guests pulls out :- for example, your original booking is for 3 guests but 1 pulls out, the total price for 3 will not be discounted to reflect the price for 2. Homestay will change their policy on this at the moment, so it is up to me, the host, to refund the difference. I do not agree with this policy but then again, Homestay doesn't support the guest/host.******

Access to the garden is via the house, at the back of the kitchen, so no side entrance access.

Homestay does not allow the host to write a review of their guest, so this is my way of warning future hosts of a nightmare guest.

I can highly recommend staying here and Michelle is warm and welcoming host.
The house is furnished to a high standard, the room was excellent with a nice comfortable bed, mirror, flat screen TV with Freeview, fast wireless internet, side table, lamp and a pull out desk. You get your own key for the room so it's good to know you possessions are secure.
It's also nice and quiet so don't let the nearby rail track put you off, you can hardly hear the trains go by. Various useful items such as hand wash, tissues, a hair drier, handy wipes, a mirror were also thoughtfully provided. There is a modern bathroom next door.
A good breakfast was provided with tea and coffee and you can cook in the modern, well equipped kitchen too.
There is a nearby supermarket and many varied take-away shops nearby in Clifton Street. The Newport Road retail area is within walking distance.
It's also easy to catch the Number 11 bus into the city from the end of the street.

Myself and my sons Chris & Martin cannot thank you enough for your hospitality Michelle. Staying with you certainly helped our evening in Cardiff be a special one. Thanks for our Sunday morning breakfast, just what we needed for our journey home. I would recommend your rooms and will for sure stay again next time we are in Cardiff. Thanks so much Kevin
Michelle is a great host, knows a lot about the area and very accommodating.
We had a fantastic first stay through Homestay, Michelle was a fantastic host, very friendly & welcoming. The room was lovely with the most comfortable bed ever!!!! We wouldn't hesitate to stay again & would definitely recommend to friends xx
Could not fault!
Had an excellent stay and will definitely visit again - FAR better than paying for a hotel!
Warmly welcomed with food and water upon arrival and shown to our room where we watched the first game of rugby before walking to the stadium for the second.
A conversational host who shared our rugby excitement and kindly gave us pointers for the best watering holes in town!
In the morning we were fed to the brim and felt very much at home - so much so, we stayed a few hours longer than planned before continuing our travels.
Thank you Michelle!
More than happy to recommend Michelle to prospective guests.
We had a lovely stay with Michelle who was so welcoming and helpful and she played along with the surprise for one of our guests. Accommodation was good and the beds were so comfortable (even more of an effort than normal to get up!). Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. No noise at night - difficult to believe we were such a short distance from city centre. Thank you Michelle.
very simple: ... good location, good price, good room very good host
Fabulous host Michelle couldn't have been any more accomadating , nothing was too much trouble, both rooms clean and comfortable excellent breakfast , we shall definitely return
Made very welcome a comfy bed and a good breakfast plus free parking about a £ 6 taxi ride to the city centre .
Michelle was extremely pleasant and friendly. I turned up late one evening (as arranged) and she was very understanding and helpful. The accommodation was very adequate and value for money is really great!
