“Perfect apartment in a great location”

The apartment has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Cardiff... and the view from the terrace is something extra. Hosts are very helpful. Thank you Charles.

“This modern gem on Cardiff Bay was a great find”
Reviewed September 20, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife and I were visiting Wales for the first time. We were fortunate to find this property because both Alyson and Charles were delightful. They couldn't have been more helpful in helping us with everything from greeting us at the apartment, which had very secure access) to helping us unload the car and suggesting places to see in the area. The Cardiff Bay location gets you away from the hustle-bustle of downtown Cardiff which is a mere 15 minute drive away. Cardiff Bay had great views and restaurants, with nice "short walks". The apartment was well furnished with all modern appliances. The rooms were spacious and the private deck, dircctly over the bay was enormous. We enjoyed cable TV, a CD player and free use of Wifi. Towels and linens were large, rather new, and very comfortable to use. A Coop to pick up provisions was a mere 3 minute walk. We would stay here again and highly recommend this apartment to anyone else. It was a great value, very clean and well-kept.

“Lovely apartment in a great location”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

After a few trips abroad this year we decided for a 7 day break in South Wales and used Cardiff as our base. We were not disappointed with our choice of this apartment, The booking was easy and hassle free, Charles and Alison were lovely and answered all our questions promptly prior to us arriving. (they were very flexible with our arrival and leaving times)
The apartment is on the 1st floor overlooking the Roath basin with a large decked terrace and the views are stunning. it is very spacious and well equipped with sky tv, towels and bedding.
the parking is secure and you have your own parking bay and the complex security is very good.
The apartment is located in a quiet area and is a short 5 minute walk to the mermaid quay. The Quay is lovely with many restaurants, cinema complex and boat trips.
For those people who like walking the city centre is only a 25 minute walk and the walk around the bay is recommended.
Thanks to Charles and Alison for making our break hassle and stress free.

“Great location”
Reviewed August 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a comfortable, well equipped, modern apartment of the type that have sprung up all over the Cardiff bay area. There are two things that earn it the 'excellent' rating,firstly the location. Far enough away from Mermaid Quay to be quiet and tranquil, yet only a few minutes walk away from it, looking out over the water where swans glide and sea birds dive. Secondly the huge decked lounging and eating area, which is unique to this apartment. Though we had mixed weather we did get a few opportunities to take advantage of this and sit outside with a drink, which was lovely. The owners were helpful and friendly and we would love to stay there again.

“An Excellent Choice”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We enjoyed our stay in this waterfront apartment very much. On arrival we were made to feel very welcome by Charles and Alison. During our one week stay we had told them that we would be having 2 guests for an overnight stay and they were thoughtful enough to make sure that there would be an extra secure parking space for them which we found very helpful.

The apartment was clean and comfortable and had a wonderful terrace with views over the waterfront. It was very quiet and in a nice location within walking distance to the centre of town. We can highly recommend it.

“Excellant waterfront appartment at cardiff Bay”
Reviewed May 18, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed in this apartment in Cardiff Bay for a week and found it to be in immaculate condition, extremely comfortable, secure and spacious, with, beautiful views over the bay from the deck, lounge and bedroom. It was a very pleasant walk along the waterfront to the shops and restaurants in Mermaid Quay, and to tourist attractions such as the Millennium Centre and the Dr Who exhibition. Also transport links to Cardiff City were virtually on our doorstep. as was a small supermarket.
Our host Charles went out of his way to make us feel welcome, and his personal and friendly assistance to us .made our stay especially memorable.
We travel regularly and found this week in Cardiff Bay to be one of the more enjoyable and relaxing of our holidays away.

“Wonderful place to stay in very convenient location”
Reviewed May 7, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

With only minutes to walk to Mermaid Quay with lots of restaurants, a comedy club and a waterbus stop, a bus stop for rides into the city right outside the door and a huge sun terrace, this is the perfect place to stay for discovering Cardiff and its surroundings. The apartment is even nicer than on the pictures, everything is immaculately clean, TV with Sky programs, comfortable bed and couch and have I mentioned the wonderful terrace? Charles welcomed us on arrival and gave a very thorough description of everything, and both Charles and Alison came to say goodbye which we considered a very nice touch. You will find everything you need to cook and eat in, Tesco, CoOp and Sainsbury are right around the corner, but there are lots of very nice eat-out-opportunities in walking distance, too. Unfortunately the weather was not warm enough to spend a lot of time on the terrace, but we had breakfast there once and it was just wonderful. Sightseeing recommendations: Cardiff Castle, Tintern Abbey and Big Pit at Blaenavon - all very unique in their field.
