Sherri was very welcoming, showed me where everything was, made me feel at home, the house was immaculate, warm, the neighbourhood is very quiet, about 15 minutes cycle or bus ride from City centre.
Sherri was a welcoming host and teh room was well furnished and very clean. A nice place to sty.
The House was very charming clean and neat with very beautiful decoration. It is everything in the descriptions and more!
My room was really warm and cosy made me feel like home. I liked the fact that I had my own private bathroom.
Sherri the host is a wonderful person, on my arrival she gave me very helpful pointers how to tour Cambridge. Sherri gives you your space but she is there when in need. I had very interesting conversation with her one night, she is filled with spirituality and experience. I am so glad I got to meet her.
My experience was a very pleasant one. I wanted to stay at a place near girton college and it was 5 min walk from there in a very calm neighborhood. At the same time it is just 5 min walk from the bus station that takes you to the city center within 10 to 15 min max.
I highly recommend anyone to stay in this beautiful house.
If I get to visit cambridge again I would definitely stay again at Sherri's, if she is still there.
Sherri thank you for making my stay such a pleasant one. I wish you the best of Luck in every step you make.
Lovely house and lovely person. Sherri is a very kind and generous woman and the room is neat, clean and attractive. I was staying for a few nights and Sherri kindly offered to organise my laundry which I thought was a kind thing to do. The first night there was Halloween. It was interesting to hear children coming to the front door and saying 'you should knock on this door as the American lady is lovely and will give you chocolate.' This says it all!
Lovely peaceful location which was the perfect place to retreat to after two full-on busy days. Appreciated having my own private bathroom.
