Descripción

El alojamiento

This room is beautiful: Great light, fresh and airy. It is modern, clean and private. It has a views across the city of Cardiff - as well as the Victorian garden. Guests can enjoy high quality cotton bed linens and comfort. There is also plenty of space and storage.
Please note it is a single bed. I don't seem to be able to change the bed type on the Airbnb description. For extra guests there's also a very large sofa in the room - so two people can easily sleep up there.
Guests are welcome to relax and access the extensive literature on the book shelves throughout the house during the stay. Wifi is available and is free. As is Netflix. There is also a desk and ergonomic office chair in the room should you require. Extra guests can also be accommodated. Please discuss with me.
Please note that the room has it's own staircase leading up and away from the rest of the house - from the upstairs floor landing - which leads up and onto it's own mezzanine floor - comprising sitting room area and bedroom; plus desk and chair area and clothing / dressing wardrobe storage area. For guests wanting black out in terms of light coming from the Velux windows I will provide an eye mask that blocks out all light.

Servicios y zonas comunes

Guests have access to their bedroom, the bathroom, dining room, kitchen and the wonderful Victorian back garden. Guests may use the kitchen facilities for food prep / white goods use etc. There is a dining room which again the guest can use. Wifi is free. For occasional use, the living room has Sky TV. Netflix access is also available free of charge for laptops / tablets / phones etc.

Atención a los huéspedes

I will welcome guests (or very occasionally make alternative arrangements) and I am more than happy to stay in touch via text / social media etc. if and as required. I will also be present at the end of the stay if required - although I am happy for guests to pop the key back through the front door letterbox, once they have locked the front door, upon exiting at the end of the stay, on check-out.
I will be available at all times for any questions or queries either by telephone - or in person - as I work freelance from home. So this really does suit someone who will be out of the house a lot during the day.
I can also supply guests with all info on local attractions and getting around :)

El barrio

Roath is a sought-after area of Cardiff; and is a nearby suburb of the city. Enjoy fantastic restaurants, coffee bars, cafe's and bars at a range of prices on Wellfield Road (9 minutes walk and towards the stunning parks) also the route to the fantastic green spaces in and around Roath, including Roath Park Boating Lake.
The top of Albany Road hosts Milgi Lounge - a must for vegetarians - and and our vegan restaurant - Anna Loka - that is doing really well on Albany Road- booking a must!
City Road offers a plethora of world cuisine and is fast becoming one of the most vibrant parts of the city (move over Brick Lane) ;)
Art galleries and spaces are a plenty (including Gate Arts Center 5 minutes walk away) and of course the MADE in Roath arts festival.
We also have Street Food festivals, NoFitStateCircus, Vintage festivals, Galleries, Boutiques... the list is endless - and of course as mentioned, beautiful Roath Park Boating Lake is 15 minutes walk away. Also the Botanical Gardens for the green fingered, (12 minutes walk) and Recreational Fields (8 minutes walk) and Tennis Courts, Basketball, Badminton and Bowls facilities also nearby.
Farmers market (Saturday AM) selling wonderful and local organic produce.
Roath also boasts its own artisan bakery, as well as a Welsh bakery (Parsons) on Wellfield Road.
The local community center is great for exercise classes and is open to all. PLEASE NOTE Despite gorgeous green spaces and great cafe bars and restaurants this is an urban area, 15 minutes walk from the city center. So please ensure that you are comfortable with inner city living.

Cómo moverse

Excellent transport links via buses (5 - 10 minutes city center) to city and Heath hospital and Park Place (University area) and trains to nearby breathtaking coast and country attractions. Small boat from Cardiff Center to Cardiff Bay in Summer. Penarth is a beautiful seaside town (with lots of boat trips to nearby sanctuary islands for birds and wildlife) and is 16 minutes away on the train. Garth Mountain and the surrounding countryside is 25 minutes away on the train. So basically you have the joy of the city - and the seaside - and mountains all with easy and excellent reach. The transport links here are second to none and cheap.

Otros aspectos destacables

Please note that I have a cat - Mr. Socks - who is a VIP of the house - or should that be VIA?! So if you don't like cats - this is not the best place for you to stay. Best suit someone who wants to be out and about, exploring the city of Cardiff and the breathtaking coast and country; OR someone who is working in Cardiff, as I work freelance from home during the day.

Treat the house with respect please.
This includes (but is not comprehensive to) no slamming of doors and no overnight guests without prior arrangement. Please see extra guest fees.
Please keep noise to a minimum! This includes not having loud late night telephone conversations and / or loud TV / laptop use etc. Not expecting you to live like a mouse of course, but it is more than possible to enjoy things like films on laptops in the bedroom - without disturbing others.
Communication is a great gift - so please communicate with me! :) Also the space is not to be used for the use of other people during the day - again without prior agreement. Please see extra guest fees.
And in most cases (unless otherwise arranged) guests are expected to be out of the property during the day.
I would also point out that guests who know to clean up after themselves are the most welcome! :) This is common sense, but includes (but is not comprehensive to) leaving bathroom and kitchen as you find it! So a quick rinsing out the shower after use - no short and curlies please for next user! The house is cleaned thoroughly weekly - but you are expected to clean up after yourself. Made a mess in the loo? There are cleaning products there for you to use! Flushable disinfecting wipes. Please don't leave your poo for me to clean up. This is not a hotel / traditional B&B. And unfortunately it appears I do have to spell this kind of thing out for some people.
Re. the kitchen - washing up dishes / cleaning up work surfaces after food prep is obvious. All cleaning materials are provided and are under the sink - don't be shy - use them to clean up after yourself.
Please do not cook meat or fish in the house.
Smoking is fine in the garden, but not the house.

I stayed in the attic, wonderful place! Luminous, spacious, original. Meryl was in all details to receive a guest: flowers, towels with shining stones stamped on them and even a bottle of water. The kitchen is full of things to cook yourself, excellent wifi signal, and a couples of stairs to keep you fit :) it's less than 10 min walking from the city center and there a lot of buses at 2 min walking. Mr Socks was very sweet and friendly, quite adorable! Good place to stay in Cardiff, I recommend it

I stayed here for three nights and was very happy. The room is right underneath the roof with two windows, spacious and comfortable. It's at the end of the stairs, without a door, but that didn't bother me. Meryl was super friendly and responsive.

Hi Alex thanks so much for your review! :) So glad you enjoyed staying in what is now being called the 'Tree Top' room - I've stayed in it myself and loved it. There's something very special about being in an attic conversion. Pleasure to host you and let me know if you're in Cardiff again. Thank you so much for the thank you chocolates!

Meryl's was a great place to stay. She was very welcoming, and a great communicator. Check-in was flexible, and I was made to feel comfortable on arrival. It is important to note that the room I stayed in was not the one shown in the pictures online. It is still a lovely room, with a double bed, sofa and desk, but instead it was an attic room, without a door and blinds on the windows. I was provided an eye mask, but its not really the same. Other than this, I very much enjoyed my stay. Her home is lovely, the bathroom very nice, and allowed access to the kitchen and lounge if wanted. I was even allowed to check-out later as no one else was arriving that day

Respuesta de Meryl:
Hi Stefan, Thanks so much for your comments. I really appreciate your feedback and loved that you felt so welcome and had such an enjoyable stay. The issue with the blinds is that I have noticed that 80% of people prefer there to be no blinds - as it's an attic conversion - and the velux windows offer tree-top views of both sides of the city. However as this is a matter of personal choice I will update my listing as necessary. As much as I would love to have a door on the attic conversion; for your own safety I am not allowed to. That is why there is separate access to the attic - via the stairs used only for that room - leading up and away from the rest of the house via its own staircase. And as you know, you're then on pretty much your own floor. Very similar to mezzanine floors that are popular with this particular period of house regards renovation. However, again it's a matter of personal choice - and as before I will be updating my room details for clarification. I thank you again for your comments and it was a pleasure to host you. Hope your back is better! Cheers and all best, Meryl

I spent three days at Meryl's place. The room I stayed in was tidy, quiet, had lots of light, great internet connection and the bed was extremely comfortable. I was afforded a lot of privacy, which was great as, in the evenings, I had some work to do. The neighbourhood great. I enjoyed wonderful Turkish food at a restaurant named 'Saray', which I highly recommend. Another convenience was the library, which was only a shot walk away. Also great, was Meryl's lovely cat Mr Socks!

Thank you Meryl and Mr Socks (her cat) for being such great hosts. The loft room was comfortable, modest, super clean, very convenient to local shops and amenities - (Birchwood Hall) for courses. Nice hot shower! Meryl and Mr Socks were absolutely lovely hosts. Meryl is super friendly, helpful, relaxed, open and good fun. It was so nice to make a new friend! :) I would definitely stay again.
