We have been in the formal B&B business for 20 years and ran our pwm fouir star B&B in Alaska. We were voted No. 1 for many years running and also sat on the board of both the Anchorage and State B&B assocaitons. Our last year while selling our home, we were an Airbnb host before selling our home to move on into the world. We have stayed at dozens of Airbnbs over the last year so far and this one is absolutely the best!
The home itself is a nice semi (duplex) that has been renovated by this fine young couple. The furniture and decor are modern, new, and fresh. I graded this place as upscale, not in the sense of a Five Star establishment, but because it was immaculately clean, very nicely appointed with comfy beds, and a really great bathroom. The WiFi was awesome.
HOWEVER, the most special part of this deal, and the reason for the FIVE STAR rating were Katy and Arwyn. This is the first year in the business and they are pros. They are doing everything just right. Attentive but not intrusive, friendly but not overbearing, and they were a wealth of information. We felt instantly comfortable.
They were gracious and welcoming, showed us around, offered to help with bags, offered us tea and even a beer. The kitchen is nicely equipped with an awesome stove, dishwasher, etc. All the things you would expect. I am a professional gourmet cook and I found everything I needed to make my family a few really lovely meals.
They have two sitting areas, each with a large screen TV and cable. We were able to watch the season opening of Game of Thrones! The St. Fagans National Museum and Culture Center was incredible and we would not have known about it if it were not for them. Downtown Cardiff is a 15 minute drive and they are just moments from the airport.
I know I am gushing. And rightly so. Like I said, we've stayed in dozens upon dozens of Airbnbs so far as we enter the second year of a six year world adventure. They truly deserve your business. ENJOY!!!
