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.
