About our home

My house is my pride and joy. It's spacious, comfortable, tidy and smoke-free. I have spent many hours repainting and decorating it. It's a typical Victorian house with, on the ground floor, a large living room overlooking a quiet street and a dining room and kitchen (both blue as is my door) overlooking a patio and large garden where I grow beans and peppers, as well as many roses and hydrangeas. Upstairs, the main bedroom overlooks the street and the bathroom and guest bedroom overlook the garden. I'm two seconds away from the liveliest and most international street in Cambridge but the house is quiet. There's a piano in the dining room, the most comfortable couch in England in the living room (most of my guests end up taking long naps on it) and books everywhere (except in the bathroom!). I'm looking for one-week swaps, preferably in Italy, by the sea, but I'm open to other destinations too. Don't hesitate to send me a message if you're interested and/or have any queries. I look forward to hearing from you!

It takes a five-minute walk to get to the station from my house and a fifteen-minute walk to the city centre. And it's two hundred metres away from the best pub food in Cambridge: the Kingston Arms.
