The Space

Hi. We have two rooms available for rent in our big 5 bedroom family home. We have one lovely double attic room with a very comfortable kingsize bed, ensuite shower and loo, this is very private, has black out blinds and a good nights sleep is pretty much guaranteed! Also for rent one single room which has use of the main bathroom (contemporary design) which has a very large shower and bath (this is only shared with our kids). Both rooms have a nice feel to them as they are bright, with character furniture and have nice views onto local gardens.

The house has a big sunny open plan kitchen- living room at the back. This opens out onto a decking and the garden beyond (with rabbits Jack and Milly running free!).

We will give you a key to come and go as you please. we've got maps and info here about the city and will give you the low down on the best bars and restaurants in town.

The house is spacious having 5 bedrooms and 3 reception rooms and is in a quiet residential street. We have ample parking and are 30 secs from the bus stop which takes you directly to the town centre. It is walking distance to pubs, parks and shops. We have Chapter arts Centre round the corner which has a great selection of beers, films and theatre events. We are spoilt for parks being between Thompson, Pontcanna and Victoria Parks. You can walk through Bute Park to central cardiff with its bars, shops, the museum and Cardiff Castle. We are also walking distance to the Millenium stadium for rugby fans! St Fagans open air museum is a short bus ride away.

We offer a simple breakfast of tea, coffee, juice, cereal and toast.

We are happy for you to use the fast broadband wifi (throughout the home), washing machine and Kitchen. We want you to be relaxed when staying.

  • I've been in Cardiff with two friends for the rugby match. Had a fantastic staying at Jem's home. Jem is a friendly fellow who loves to entertain his guests in his tremendous open space living-room where you can enjoy energizing breakfasts facing the beautiful wall-wide window overlooking the glorious backyard, or having a tea comfortably seated and rewarmed by the fireplace.
    Rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. Don't hesitate to explain to Jem which kind of accommodation do you need and he'll arrange perfectly every solution for you. It was nice to meet his sunny wife Fran and his clever and sporty son Louis, unfortunately Ella was staying at a friend but we're sure she's as lovely as the rest of the family. The house is perfectly located, at a walking distance from the buzzing city centre (beautiful walking throughout parks and suburbs) we didn't need to move the car to reach Cardiff Castle and the Millennuum Stadium. We'll definitely recommend this accommodation, and hope to be with you again in the future. Thanks, Riccardo Luigino and Simone

  • This was my 1st AirBNB experience and for sure will not my last!
    Jem & his family were amazing hosts and the whole time I was there felt at home & comfortable... My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer!!
    I will definitely return to Cardiff in the future and hope to stay with Jem's family again!

  • Jim and his family are cut from the same cloth as legends. They have a lovely house, lovely family and the en-suite guest room was just perfect. We had a little break away in Cardiff, and Jim could not have done much more to make us feel more welcome. There is a lovely walk into Cardiff along the river, and there are plenty of things to do in Cardiff!

    I would definitely recommend this Jim's place to anyone.

  • Jem is a host everyone can only dream about. He is kind, polite, super-friendly and helpful person.

    Staying at his house was a true pleasure that my Mrs. and I will never forget. Thanks a lot, Jem!

  • Our first AirBnB experience was a great one!
    Jem has a lovely home, our attic room was spacious and airy with a great en-suite shower and toilet.

    Unfortunately we only had a brief meet up with Jem as he was off camping but glad we did. 3 miles out of town but easy to get into the city centre and on one day we had a lovely walk through the park by the river to town. We will return... if he will have us :)

  • A clean and comfortable room in this lovely family's home. Welcoming and friendly hosts. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
    My first experience with airbnb; this sets a high precedent!

  • Jem is a great host, personable & really welcoming - as are the other people in his family I bumped into!
    The loft is superb for the under-slept - quiet, & nice comfy bed. I really enjoyed the stroll into town along the river through the park. Would definitely recommend staying here!

  • Jem and Fran were super-friendly, helpful, non-intrusive. I had a conference in Cardiff, was traveling with my 13 year old son. As my son said, "they treated us like friends or family, in the best way, not like "renters". The room is, as they say, spacious, airy, private, quiet. You will enjoy your stay!!

  • This is a truly great place - friendly, lovely bed, plenty of space etc. It's the kind of find that originally gave air bnb it's great rep. Wonderful

  • We didn't meet Jem, but the rooms were very comfortable, family really nice, and the location was quiet yet convenient to the bus. Jem was great at communicating. Recommended

About
We are a creative relaxed family. Fran and I are both choreographers working in theatre and dance. Our active kids are Louis (12) and Ella (9). We are a happy family who live life to the full. Our airbnb income is saved for travel and five years ago we all went to India for five weeks. Next year its South East Asia. I particularily enjoy hosting as my mum used to run a B and B when I was a kid so I grew up with guests around the dinner table.
