Check In
  • We had a nice stay with Shan and her husband Dave. Their place was near the bus line and easy access to the town centre. Breakfast was set out in the morning. Watching the World Cup (United States lost) and Wimbledon was fun with Dave and Shan.

  • We just spent five nights with Shan and Dave and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were made to feel very welcome, with a comfortable room, nice breakfast and good company. Both hosts are very knowledgeable about Cambridge and helped us a great deal with local information. Our thanks to you both!

  • Shan and David are great hosts. Because my mom and I arrived in Cambridge late and we were really short of time they made everything easier for us and also helped us arrange a taxi when we left early in the morning. The room is really sweet, there is even a heart shape carpet between the twin beds, would be ideal for couples (my mom and I also enjoyed the comfortable environment). The bathroom is nice and clean and the shower works well, didn't try the bath so don't know about it. Feeling like home and Shan even got up earlier to prepare breakfast for us. Many thanks to you. Everything went smoothly when move in, definitely recommend.

  • We had a great stay at Shan's. Her home is lovely. Both her and Dave are helpful and welcoming. The location is ideal as it is close to the city center with easy access to the #9 and #2 bus lines. Having breakfast ready in the morning was a nice gesture. Definitely coming back again.

  • We really enjoyed staying with Shan and Dave and Louie, the loveliest dog we've ever seen. They are kind, friendly and always helpful to us.
    The house is lovely and cosy, and the location is quite good.
    We recommend that you should stay with them (if you are a dog lover, you must!).

  • Shan and Dave are friendly and nice hosts. We felt very comfortable at their home and it was clean and tidy. We could use the kitchen at any time and it was a full equipment available. They gave us a lot of great and helpfully advice. Highly recommended! Best wishes Laura and Eva

  • Staying with Shan was a lovely experience. She and her husband are great hosts, who really give you space and quiet, but conversation as well. Their house is beautiful and clean and everything was taken care of. I would reccomend staying with her to anyone!
