The house is located in a quiet cul-del-sac off Botley Road. It is just over 5 minutes′ walk from Oxford train station (1 hour journey to London).

I love cooking and baking. If you have any special dietary requirements or if you have any food allergies, please let me know!
The kitchen is fully equipped and you are welcome to use the kitchen to cook if you wish. I only ask that you please leave the kitchen as you found it after using it - clean and tidy!
Interaction with Guests
I live here so you will meet and see me, and I am more than happy to help and do what I can to accommodate your stay. Most of the time I am away at work or out running or at the gym so you will have your own space and privacy, but feel free to chat with me if need be!
The house is in a superb location to explore the city and all it has to offer for the perfect and picturesque visit.
It is located in a peaceful and calm neighbourhood with easy access to many amenities and attractions close by.
The house is a 15 minutes ′ walk to Oxford City Centre where there are plenty of shops and cafés to enjoy, as well as the historical sights of the city including the Ashmolean museum, The Randolph Hotel for its famous cream tea, Christ Church College, Oxford University and the surrounding colleges.
It is a 13 minutes ′ walk to Gloucester Green Bus terminal, where there are frequent buses direct to London, Gatwick, Heathrow, Stansted and Luton airports.
The Thames path is next door to the house where you can walk or cycle and enjoy the views and maybe stop for a spot of punting!

My partner and I stayed at Juan's recently when we attended a wedding in Oxfordshire. He was very accommodating and allowed us to arrive earlier in the day to get ready. We also arrived back in the early hours, which Juan was happy for us to do (we did try to be very quiet and respectful!). The bedroom is just the right size and the whole house was clean and homely. Everything was well organised and clear. I didn't have any problem with the shower height, but I'm only 5'1"! Lovely cake for breakfast in the morning too. Thanks Juan!
This was a beautiful experience! The host was very accommodating; went out of his way to make our arrival worry free and gave clear instructions on the services and expectations. I would definitely stay here again. As advertised, it is an easy walk to the train station, which is another easy walk to most of the interesting sites (and sights) in Oxford. Five Stars!
It was a pleasure to stay in the house, which is situated in a charming district in walking distance from the center of Oxford. Our room was nice, clean and quiet. Juan is a friendly and hospitable host and a splendid cake baker:-) We enjoyed our stay and have nothing to complain about.
The Neighborhood was very quiet and residential yet we could walk everywhere. Juan made it very easy for us to get into the house and be comfortable. The orange cake that he baked freshly for our breakfast made us feel very welcome. The room setting was comfortable and there was a lot of information about what to do in Oxford. All in all a positive experience.
Juan was a great host. The room was clean and cozy, we had everything we need for breakfast. He gave us all the details about how to get to his place from the station and apart from this he gave us info about good places to eat near the house. Close to the train station and the neighbourhood was quiet and nice.
Juan's house is a great place to stay! The room is clean and spacious, as well as the kitchen and garden. Juan is really easy going, and flexible with check in and check out times. It really is just 5 minutes walking from the city center.

About the Host, Juan
I am an active, sociable and healthy person who loves sports and cooking!
I enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds. I love travelling and miss the sun and sea from my home country of Spain (hard to get a tan in the English rain!)
