Beautiful garden apartment with everything you need whether visiting Cambridge for business or pleasure. I was in Cambridge spending some time at Homerton College also taking a short break. There is an excellent Italian Bakery for delicious coffee, breakfast and lunch, a great fish and chip shop and one of the best Indian restaurants we have ever been too all in short walking distance. It's a pleasant 15-20 minute walk to the center of Oxford past any shops that you might need. Grantchester is a short drive away (if you are fan of the TV series) with a beautiful walk across the Cam and a couple of wonderful pubs. The apartment is spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. There is a wonderfully comfortable bed and living area! The on-site parking is a real plus too. We couldn't have asked for more and will definitely be returning!!:):)
A friend and I stayed here over the last weekend of January 2017 and it was fantastic. This accommodation is a simple walk from the station, and by extension is an easy walk into the city centre (20-25mins from property to centre, 30mins maximum if you walk particularly slowly). The pictures on here don't do the accommodation justice as I was pleasantly surprised that it looked even better in person. The kitchen is well equipped, with dishwasher, washing machine, toaster, kettle and tea/coffee/sugar. We really appreciated the pint of milk placed in the fridge on our arrival that allowed us to have a cup of tea without having to go find a shop right away!
The landlady was very pleasant and informative prior to our arrival when asked about boardgames at the property as well as any good walks for the time of year. She was also very understanding of our slightly late check-out/departure for which we are very grateful.
In total there are three rooms. Two of which are the bedroom and ensuite bathroom, both well finished. The bed is king-size and very comfortable. The third room is the kitchen/living room/dining room. This is also well finished and very modern. The garden looked great too, though it was a shame we didn't really use it due to the time of year.
Would definitely like to come back again some time, preferably in the summer months!
Anyone querying the need for the deposit. It's a nice modern place in a great location and with good facilities, leave it in the same state you received it/with respect.
Stayed in this property for 4 nights in May 2016. Very well presented and in first class condition. Short walk into the city centre, with shops, restaurants and a cinema close by. The garden area makes a stay here much more enjoyable than being in a high rise apartment property. Can thoroughly recommend. Owner was very helpful throughout the booking procedure and the stay, in a very unobtrusive way.

I have stayed twice at Levada House within the last month for over a week and both times have been amazing. When travelling in from far away places, all you want is to be met by a warm and friendly owner, a very clean and well equiped flat and a comfy bed to sleep. Levada house definitely fulfilled my every need. The location is ideal with a supermarket, restaurants, Post office, Italian deli, dry cleaners, Pharmacy, News Agents, a gym and Cinemaplex which are all within minutes of the flat. It is also conveniently located very near a bus stop that takes you directly into the City Centre.
Thank you Kerrie for being so flexible about my check in time and for the lovely chocolate treat too. My daughter and I have truly enjoyed staying at your place and will definitely be returning in the very near future.
All the best.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, bright and tastefully appointed. The bi-fold doors opening out to the private deck and garden made the place feel very homely. The attention to detail - from the quality of the bed linen and provision of kitchen/food essentials to the lovely flowers - was greatly appreciated and made for an extremely comfortable, stress-free and enjoyable stay.
With a bus stop situated moments away from the house, the location of Levada House proved to be very convenient for getting into the city centre. On weekdays we did notice the traffic outside quite early in the morning; I suspect we were more aware of this as we live in a much quieter residential area - but after a few days we soon acclimatised and it wasn't a huge concern for us.
Our host Kerrie was a pleasure to deal with and communication was fast and efficient. Kerrie has thoughtfully provided for all the needs of her guests in a warm, welcoming space. I would heartily recommend Levada House - be it for a short or long-term stay - for visitors to Cambridge.
