I stayed here with my three daughters (teens) in mid October. The house absolutely exceeded expectations and the pictures are accurate. It is a lovely property and quaint area. We were able to figure out the buses on our own with the help of some friendly locals. I would have loved a little more detail about transport since we are from the US and did not bring a car. I fear we may have caught our hostess, Dominique, at a bad time, as she was not very welcoming to us. It is always hard to know what a person might be dealing with but we just felt like a hassle for her. Only for that reason, I probably would not stay here again.
Lovely, comfy one-bedroom apt. was truly like a home away from home with charm to spare. After using HomeAway for the past 7 years in the states, this Oxford gem was our first foray abroad and did not disappoint. From the quick, convenient booking process, the easy directions and apt. access and the property itself, we couldn’t have been happier. Considering we booked last minute the night before, Marc was very receptive, pleasant and made everything nice and easy. We loved the unique third floor “Witch’s Hat” turret architecture and cozy layout. Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, dining ware and everything else needed for a short stay. Plenty of towels and bathroom amenities including a hair dryer which was a bonus. Queen size bed was extremely comfy and a lovely little vanity highlighted the bedroom. Living room is small with a comfy couch to sit and watch tv and is connected to the quirky dining area in the “Witch’s Hat” which overlooks the street. Quick, 15-minute walk to Oxford town center is a plus for exploring the University and enjoying the local pubs, eateries and shops, as well as a 30-minute walk to the train station. Also very easy to catch a local bus along the main road which runs in front of the apt. to the train station or town. Would recommend to other travelers and hope to return in the future!
