First time user of airbnb, really enjoyed our stay. The location of the flat was excellent, a quiet and safe neighbourhood, very close to the city centre. Cissy was an excellent host and was very prompt in responding to our emails/texts. Her partner Steve was also very helpful, welcoming and always put their guests' interests first.
I booked this flat for my parents to stay in while they were visiting Cambridge. Cissy was very responsive and welcoming. The flat is in an excellent location. The ceiling was bit low for my 6'4" father but other than that it was comfortable and well-equipped, and my parents enjoyed their stay.
We were in Cambridge for three days, Cissy's place was great, in a good location, very close to the center of Cambridge and all the shops and supermarkets. The place was easy to find and key handover was very easy so there was no need to agree for a specific time. The flat was comfortable and clean and everything was functional. Cissy was quick to respond to all of my questions and she was really flexible, allowing us to check out later than normal time even with a short time request. It was perfect for our needs.
Cissy was very easy to make arrangements with and very clear. The flat was immaculate, well equipped and perfect for our visit. The parking was easy once we worked out where on the road signs the area name was indicated and we were able to park over the road from the flat. Perfect location, great host.
Very enjoyable. Great location and great and clean flat. Cissy was very responsive to our questions. Would definitely recommend!
We were in Cambridge for two days - Cissy's place was great, in a good location and well looked after. The key handover was very easy so there was no need to agree a specific time or rush. Exactly what we were hoping for.
