We spent five weeks here in December/January 2014/15. The house is impeccable in every way - beautifully clean, well equipped, and superb location. Close to the shops, pubs and restaurants of Jericho and a short walk into Oxford and the train station, this house is in an absolutely ideal location. We had a five year old with and he had no problem with the stairs (despite not being used to stairs at home). Liz was always very helpful and came to our help quickly whenever we needed it. We will absolutely be staying here the next time we visit Oxford.

“Cozy Flat in a peaceful location”

We rented this property simply because it is close to our children's boarding school. The check in/out was very easy. Parking is on the street with provided parking permit. There is a small convenient store just around the corner. Owner (Liz) was very attentive and helpful. During our stay, there was slight problem with electricity which was fixed the following morning (much faster than some luxury hotels. The beds were comfortable. Bathroom was nice and clean with plenty of hot water. All in all, I have nothing bad to say about this property.

“Charming property in vibrant area and close to city centre”
Reviewed 17 October 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My family and I rented this property when we went to Oxford for my graduation. One key reason being its proximity to my college and we liked the personal look and charm of the property. We where not upon arriving as the pictures provided by the manager provide a accurate image of the property.

The house itself is a small terraced house on a quiet street. The house has a nice little garden with with a terrace, which we enjoyed breakfast on everyday as we were very lucky with the weather. Further there is a nice living room and kitchen down stairs, which are tastefully decorated and have maintained a rather personal style. The upstairs have a modern bathroom as well as the master bedroom (which have a walk in closet) and the second bedroom. The beds where comfortable, although the duvet were too thick for the summer weather (although the very warm weather we experienced is not the usual so they may be useful the rest of the year). The second bedroom may be a bit to small for some likening to share, but me and my sister, both being adults, managed to share it well, although cupboard space is limited so we had to hang some of our clothes in our parents room. The property is well equipped and in good standard (apart from the iron which might need clean up). Only real catch I can think of is the rather steep staircase and small hallway which may be troublesome for anyone with mobility issues as both the bedrooms are upstairs. So overall its a very charming property which well covered my family needs for the week we stayed in Oxford.

The property is placed in North Oxford about 15-20 minutes walk from town, which is good as it takes it a bit away from the very busy city centre. This however does not mean that you have to walk a long way for dinner in the evening as you can cook in the apartment or go to one of the many restaurants that are in the local area, as Walton Street with its many good restaurants are just around the corner.

Overall a excellent place to stay in Oxford.

Lovely property in a perfect location, close to many bars and restaurants. Owners were very helpful. Much better than any hotel for our purposes. We parked the car up and didn't need to use it again. Proper little home from home in a fantastic area of oxford, would definitely stay again!
