The Madras Cottage - Bright 3BDR Home with Garden
The home has recently been refurbished and features a homely and modern styling throughout the lovely cottage. The entrance is located on the ground floor and it leads to the living room with a large TV, two sofas and an armchair, for when you want to relax after a long day of exploring beautiful Cambridge. Watching movies, reading books or playing games, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The kitchen is adjacent to the living room and it offers plenty of space for communal gathering or just to cook together. It comes fully equipped and with plenty of storage space. The dining room with a large table is located right next to the kitchen, in the conservatory area, making it a great spot for dinner under the moonlight and stars. The conservatory opens up to the private garden space. On the ground floor guests will also find a bathroom for added convenience. All 3 bedrooms are located on the first floor, featuring two double beds and one bunk bed, ideal when travelling with kids. The second bathroom is located on the first floor. The home has a lot of natural light and offers views of the private and enclosed garden area at the back of the property. The home is also provided with high-speed WiFi and offers lots of space should you want to get some work done.
You’ll have access to the house at all times. Because the home comes with key box, you’ll be able to check in any time after 3pm, but please be mindful of noise after 9pm.
Please reach out through this listing if you have any questions, as I am always on call and available to my guests if needed.
The home is located in the lovely neighbourhood in the east of Cambridge, close to many picture-perfect Cambridge University Colleges and the University’s Botanic Garden. It’s also a short distance from many of the town's attractions such as the Bridge of Sighs, Kings College Chapel, the Fitzwilliam Museum and countless other attractions, restaurants, bars, shops, pubs and coffee shops.
Given the location of the home, most of the town is within walking distance or only a very short drive away. Trains as well as bus routes closely connect Cambridge to most other cities in the UK. There are affordable Taxis and Uber as well as public transport available should you not want to walk.
This home is located right in the middle of the city, so it’s perfect if you want to enjoy the lively city centre. The home is spread across multiple levels and guests who have difficulties with stairs may find it hard to access the whole home. This home is beautifully designed, but the staircase is not childproofed. Guests who want to bring younger children should be aware that children must be supervised at all times on the staircase. Travel cots can be provided upon request but guests will have to bring their own linens.
Please, no parties or smoking. Please be respectful of the neighbours and keep noise to a minimum after 9pm. If these rules are violated we will charge guests to cover the security call out fee and any additional expenses to cover their misbehaviour.

Frequently asked questions for this offer
What happens after I make a reservation?
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Can I see my chosen accommodation in person before I sign the lease agreement?
Your time is precious. That's why we've added a virtual tour option to our platform so you can see some of the rentals listed on Flatio from the comfort of your own home.
If a virtual tour isn't available for the accommodation you've chosen, you can contact the landlord and ask them if they're willing to give you a personal tour of the rental unit.
If you move in and find that the rented accommodation doesn't match the information on Flatio at the time the reservation request was sent to the landlord, you can withdraw from the lease agreement under certain circumstances explained in this article in our help center.
Also, under our "secure move-in" policy, we'll assist you with moving to an alternative accommodation if you report within a certain period of time that the rental unit doesn't match the ad and the landlord doesn't fix the problem immediately. You can read the details in our help center.
How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancelation policy).
