I have lived and worked on the river cam for nearly 20 years, as a boat builder and more recently as ships captain for a local passenger cruiser. I travelled the world when I was 21 but now find I generally visit Catalunya for holidays to see friends from university. I have worked for your space apartments who provide a similar service to air bnb although on a much more industrial scale, so I know what makes a good stay for guests. I offer a unique product at an affordable rate and consider service to be paramount. If you have anything you would like to know about me or my houseboat please ask.
