Rent­ing with John Winter

Why rent from John Winter? 

Quite sim­ply, I pro­vide the best hous­es and the best ser­vice at great prices.

I have built my rep­u­ta­tion by offer­ing high qual­i­ty homes for uni­ver­si­ty stu­dents for near­ly 50 years and I strive to be the very best stu­dent hous­ing provider. I’m proud to be the only one in Cardiff with my name above the door.

My hous­es are in the most attrac­tive stu­dent loca­tions and are refur­bished to the high­est stan­dards, and because I’m not a let­ting agent — I own every house I let — my excel­lent team and I can pro­vide you the best ser­vice. Ask any of our cur­rent or for­mer ten­ants first­hand and they’ll tell you what liv­ing in a John Win­ter house is like!

I know the impor­tance of a safe, secure and com­fort­able home whilst at uni­ver­si­ty, and every­thing about my busi­ness, from the design of my hous­es to the way you’ll inter­act with my team, is focused on ensur­ing you have the best pos­si­ble expe­ri­ence of stu­dent life in Cardiff.

I look for­ward to wel­com­ing you in to one of my houses.
