"I spent one night at Rosie's. She was welcoming, friendly and showed me around the house and the room. The location of the house is great- only 10 mins from the train station (in Mill Road area), and about 20-25 mins to the city centre. The room is on a smaller side but had a good double bed and is off the main road so very quiet. It was also nice to meet Rosie's husband and their little boy, who was very well behaved!" Sonia, who stayed in Aug 2016
"We would like to thank your family for the warm hospitality, we had an enjoyable stay! Thank you Wilfrid for being such a good host to Austin and sharing your toys!" Xinglong and Qianting, Singaporean couple who stayed in Jun 2016 with their young son
"We took Rosie and Tim's holiday accommodation for 8 days and I must say that all of these 8 days were peaceful and worth while. We have enjoyed our stay at their house for various reasons. Firstly, the cool atmosphere maintained at their house, the facilities, which they provide to the guests, its easy accessibility to the city centre and their two year old little bundle of joy (a real entertainer). I would recommend this place as a coolest holiday accommodation in Cambridge and would love to come again for another short stay." Aastha and Dhananjay, Indian couple who stayed in May 2016
"Rosie & Tim's family home was the perfect transition into Cambridge. They were welcoming, warm hosts whose home radiated with the same genuine care, warmth and friendliness with which they did. Located a short walk from the station and close to lots of local food gems it was in the perfect location. The ambience of this family is both caring and peaceful, I would highly recommend to travellers seeking a stressless homely environment." Apphia, British woman who stayed with us for 9 nights in April 2016
"Our stay over the course of 5 weeks was awesome; even with an 18 month old baby, there were no arguments about anything. The Robisons are very kind and caring as well as they help wherever they can. Communication to arrange the booking was fast and good. From the first day of arrival it felt like staying with old friends. That feeling never subsided. For us the no. 1 address for a delightful stay in Cambridge. And surely not the last." Sandra and Nathan, German couple who stayed together with their 18 month old son for 5 weeks in September/October 2015
"Rosie and Tim are very friendly, the house has the perfect location to go around and fine in Cambridge." Sabrina, Italian lady who stayed for 8 days in August 2015
"My stay in Rosie's house has been very pleasant. They're very kind and friendly. They have been very patient too because they have explained and answered all my questions in my "horrible" pronounced English. I'll come back next time when I'm in Cambridge." Maria, Spanish lady who stayed for 5 nights in July 2015. She did indeed return in April 2016!
®I had a nice stay at Rosie & Tim's home. They are a lovely family with a cute baby. They made my initial steps in Cambridge very smooth. The room is very comfortable and they are always open to help with other needs. In my first days, when family is far away, they made me feel I was not so far. I strongly recommend this family and room for temporary accommodation for people that come abroad" Roberto, Spanish man who stayed for 2 weeks in June 2015.
"This is a nice small room in a very good location, close to city centre and public transport. Hosts are a young family of three, offering everything that may be needed for a short stay, ranging from every day tools to useful information about Cambridge. A good option as a starting point for people moving to Cambridge for longer periods." Anna & Stefano, Italian couple who stayed for 2.5 wks in Apr/May 2015
