I discovered Airbnb (Jan 2013) and am very happy to become a host.

The space

Happy guests are very important to me. Before making a booking may I request guests to have a read through my description just to make sure that what I am offering matches your needs and requirements.


The apartment is in a brilliant location right in the heart of the city. It is within 5 minutes was of many popular restaurants and bars. It is less than 5 minutes walk from Cardiff Central train station and the main tourist attractions in the city such as Cardiff Castle, the Millennium Stadium, museums, arcades, galleries, parks etc. It is a 10 minute walk from Cardiff University and a 15 minute walk from Cardiff Bay, Mermaid Quay, Dr Who Experience and the Millennium Centre. It is also conveniently located near to the central business district.

Guest access

You will have exclusive access to the bedroom and share the main bathroom.

The room contains a standard size double bed.

The room does NOT contain a TV or a fridge. I request guests not to eat or drink in the bedroom (apart from water).

There is wifi access in the bedroom.

There is NO access to kitchen or living room (the kitchen is located through my bedroom/office area). This is reflected in the price of the room.

There are many cafes and restaurants within a 5 minute walk which cater to all budgets.

I am happy to do laundry for guests free of charge. If you leave a bag of clothes outside the bedroom door I will happily wash and dry it for you.

Interaction with guests

I am RARELY at home. I am always available on the Airbnb message thread (preferable) or my mobile if you need anything. I am always happy to advise on places to visit and eat etc and will do my best to help you make the most of your trip. If I am home, I will try to meet you but please don't book with that expectation in mind.

My helper will meet you at check in to hand over the key and is on hand for you during your stay should you need anything. Ideally suits independent guests.

Other things to note

The room is available for check-in between 4pm and 10pm only. Guests must commit to an arrival time the day before as we're not at the apartment all the time and we need to schedule our day.

Check-in before 4pm is NOT possible even to drop bags as nobody is able to come to the property before then to give you access.

If you need to check-in after 10pm, please contact me BEFORE you make your travel plans as it may NOT always be possible, particularly if I am away.

If due to unforeseen circumstances you arrive after 10pm WITHOUT prior arrangement, I cannot absolutely guarantee to be able to give you access, particularly if I am away as Agatha does not live in the apartment and may not always be around later in the evening to come and let you in.


-A profile photo - head shot is fine
-A mobile number which will work in the UK- an international number is fine
-A brief description of the purpose of your visit and who will be coming

- Guests who get drunk, rowdy, unable to control noise levels etc. I only want people in a coherent/reasonable/sober state of mind entering my home.

- Hook-ups. All guests in the booking party must already be known to each other. I do not want guests bringing people they have only just met into my home.

Great central location, easy walk to all that Cardiff has to offer. Would stay here again.

Lavinia's home was meticulously clean and very cute. It was also incredibly convenient - about five minutes away from the train station and a short walk away the castle and lots of shops. One thing to note however - it is a very popular and very central area, so it can get loud on weekend nights. Bring ear plugs! However, it is a great value and is definitely centrally located.

Really comfortable flat at the centre of Cardiff. I highly recommend it!

The flat locates in Cardiff central and is accessible to shopping mall and restaurant easily. Currently no wifi and cutlery/ cooking utensils in the flat but i think Lavinia is improving the flat. Lavinia does provide car parking, car park is linked directly to the living place so pretty convenient. Overall, that was a very pleasant stay.

Really great location, in the city centre where everything is accessible. The place has basic needs for our short stay but really beautiful! We didn't regret staying and will definately return. Lavinia and Agata were really nice to us, providing great hospitality.
