Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Cozy and welcoming. I stayed here while looking for a rental in Cambridge. Glo was very welcoming.

    January 2014
  • I had a lovely stay at Glo's place while doing research in Cambridge. It was a short bus ride (bus #2) or a 30 minute walk across the green to campus.

    I just wish that I had been there in the summer so that I could sit in her beautiful garden. So I'll just have to return then.

    Response from Glo:

    Thank you Rainy. Come back soon.

  • I had a very pleasant stay at Glo's lovely house. Glo was a very friendly and helpful host and welcomed me with a big smile and a cup of tea.
    The house is well located. By bus or by feet you can easily get into the center. But I would recommend a walk - in this way you discover all the beautiful little places Cambridge offers :-)
    Thank you for everything, Glo! Hope to see you again someday :-)

    November 2013
  • Glo was an amazing host. Very friendly and helpful :)
    Her house was easy to reach from the centre, closed to the river, public transport and local supermarket.
    Thanks Glo for your hospitality. I really enjoy staying at your lovely house. Hope to come back and visit Cambridge again one day.
