About This Listing
This stylish town-house apartment has recently been fully refurbished. It is 40m2 and has been beautifully arranged to take full advantage of the space and light. The apartment consists of an open plan kitchen/sitting room, a bright double bedroom and a modern bathroom. In the living room, there is a futon-sofa which unfolds to become a comfortable, full-sized double bed. A single inflatable mattress can also be provided, which takes the total number of guests accommodated up to 5.
The bus stop serving the Oxford Tube, National Express, Express London and Airline coaches is right outside our house - it is called the 'St Clements' stop. The flat is situated on the 2nd floor and, as in most traditional town-houses in the area, there is no lift. There are 34 stairs to negotiate.
Guests have access to a parking space and two bikes with helmets are also included (please let us know if you wish to use them during your stay). For the families with small child I could offer a cot and a stoller/buggy. For your comfort, you will also find in the apartment:
- fresh towels and bed linen
- hair dryer
- shower gel and shampoo
- tea, coffee, sugar.......all the kitchen contents are at your disposal
- Wifi internet
Interaction with Guests
Unless you wish to meet the owners in person, you will be free to enjoy your stay from beginning to end in complete privacy.
St Clements/Cowley is a vibrant area full of restaurants serving fantastic food from all over the world - Italian, Indian, Chinese, Spanish, Jamaican, Turkish and British are just some of those that can be found a stone’s throw from the apartment. In addition, there are plenty of lovely cafés, bars and quirky shops to while away a spare moment.
The flat is located a minute’s walk from a Sainsbury's supermarket, should you wish to do any food shopping.
The flat is very close to the centre of Oxford, just a minute from the river (where you can hire a punt in the summer) and some of Oxford’s most famous and striking colleges. After a 2 minute walk which takes you across the beautiful 18th century Magdalen Bridge, you’ll find yourself on the historic High Street. Walking is the best way to get around and explore Oxford, or you can get the full experience of life in Oxford as the residents and students do: by bike.
The Oxford tube, National Express, Express London and Airline coaches stop right outside our house – the stop is called 'St Clements'.
I expect our guests to be responsible and respectful of our apartment and its contents, as well as our neighbours’ peace of mind. Extra guests will only be permitted if the owners are notified and give their consent – this will be monitored. Smoking is not permitted in the apartment.
A special request: please take extra care with the wooden floor, especially with heavy suitcases and high heeled shoes etc., as the wood scratches easily. Please do not wear shoes inside the apartment.
Other than this, it is just a case of using common sense and treating the apartment with the same care as you would your own. If you see a plant, for example, we would very much appreciate your watering it.
Please remember to take the rubbish out after your stay (bins are outside in the rear of the property or look through window).
Place dirty dishes into dishwasher, tables in the cupboard on right.
The location is amazing!
The apartment was clean.
However, the two bedrooms are a sleeping sofa in the living room and a bed in the foyer.
Also the sofa didn't have any linen or bedding.
food form the former guests was still in the fridge.
Overall, ok place to stay as a young couple.
From Arrival to Departure I had excellent contact with Victoria (we did not meet her). Everything is clear and she also gave me the opportunity to leave my bag a little longer after check out. The apartment is small, yet very nice. We got the chance to take coffee and make feel at home. For a short stay 1/2 nights it is a good stay for 3 people. However, if longer I would only stay with two as the sofa bed was not as comfortable as the normal bed. The location is near the centre (10/15 min walk) and the bus right in front of the building. However, during the night there is a lot of noise from cars and people heading back home. I would stay here again for a short stay.
Victoria is an excellent host providing lots of information on her property before hand, toiletries and local knowledge on restuarants.
The flat is in an excellent location for exploring Oxford and we felt very safe. The facilities were excellent, clean and the flat is bright and airy. The view up St Clements Road is wonderful. Having a car park was fantastic!
I recommend this flat to anyone wanting to visit Oxford.
The flat was clean, tidy and in a convenient location. Victoria was a great host. Good communication and accommodated our specific needs. Thanks very much
Everything in Victoria's lovely flat in Oxford was exactly as described! She was even helpful in advising me how best to arrive from the airports in London. There is actually a bus from both Heathrow and Gatwick that leaves you directly in front of her apartment. Once there, it was clear right away how central it was. I could walk anywhere I needed to get to. Bed was comfortable, living room was welcoming, and the kitchen had everything you could need. Looking forward to my next visit to Oxford and my next stay with Victoria!
Victoria is an excellent host. She wasn't there when we stayed at her flat but she thought of everything you might need. We had some wash machine issue and she reacted quickly to fix it. I'd definitely recommend her houses to my friends.
