About this listing

Family home in the leafy Roath Park area of Cardiff (1.7 miles from Millennium/Principality Stadium) - Lovely deli/cafe on doorstep and just 10 min. walk to cafes/pubs/restaurants in Roath.


Security Deposit: £500
Weekly Discount: 10%


The space

We have one spare bedroom (red walls in pics) which will normally be rented out first, with a double bed and optional single cot bed, to accommodate a maximum of 3 guests.

The family bathroom is on the 1st floor just down the hall from the main guest bedroom. We do our best to limit our use of this bathroom when we have guests (kids might use toilet in the middle of the night) and we try to stick to the downstairs wet room - giving the guests as much "private" use of the 1st floor bathroom as possible.

Guest access

Guests will have full access to common areas, but we would ask to restrict any meal preparation to the microwave/kettle, due to quirks with the oven/stove - unless we're available to show you how to use everything.

Interaction with guests

We are a full family of 4, with a puppy (Sproodle, so hypoallergenic) - be warned! - with two children aged 4 and 9 living here as well. Whilst the kids are very well behaved, we do have early starts most days. Will do our best to act as good hosts and happy to provide information about the area.

The neighbourhood

There is a great cafe/deli literally on our doorstep (Deli Rouge); The Albany is our local pub (5 mins) with a huge range of pubs/cafes/shops/restaurants about a 7 min. walk away on Wellfield & Albany Roads. The house is about 60 meters from the entrance to Roath Park Lake & Gardens, and 1 mile to this end of the city centre.

Getting around

Bus stop to city centre & stadium about 40 meters away - but also very walkable or a £4.50 taxi/Uber ride away.

Other things to note

We have a puppy (Sproodle, so hypoallergenic)

It was a delight staying with Barry and his family. The room was spacious and comfortable and the house was really beautiful. Good location on walking distance from the city centre.

Beautiful house and Barry and his family were perfect hosts. The room was very comfortable with a tv, tea and coffee and anything else you may need. Great location - 20 mins walk into town and Barry gave us some tips for bars and pubs. Would definitely recommend this relaxed, very hospitable host and excellently finished room.

The home Barry and his lovely family shared with us last Saturday night was wonderful. It's a beautifully eclectic mix which gave a very warm homely feel. The bed was really comfortable and the fluffy duvets and pillows very clean and soft. The bathroom was modern and clean with a great supply of chic toiletries plus a stack of different sized towels for our use. A lockable door to the room was a great touch. We walked in to Cardiff city centre which took about half an hour then a taxi back cost £10.00. We did not have any breakfast as we left promptly. Before we left their little girl presented us with a lovely picture she had just drawn us. Very sweet. Altogether a lovely stay and I would recommend these hosts to anyone. Thanks again.

Staying at Barry's was like being home away from home. The house is beautiful, decorated with great taste and personality. It is in a quiet neighborhood with an amazing park just 3 minutes away, great to stroll around or jog. My room had a comfy bed, drawer and hanging space for clothes, and a desk. The towels were very plush. The terrace on the back is great to sit and relax. Only a 20' walk into town. Barry and his family of wife and two happy and well behaved children made me feel very welcome. I will most certainly go back and stay with them again.
