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.
Victoria has a beautiful home. The bed is comfortable, and there is lots of light. The flat in conveniently located to the bus stop, grocery stores, and the High Street. There are also several good restaurants nearby. As a host, Victoria was very accommodating. She made arrangements so that we would be able to store our luggage a couple hours prior to check-in. She also left some tea with cream and sugar for us when we arrived. I would highly recommend staying in this flat.
Victoria är en fantastisk värd som verkligen fick mig att känna mig välkommen. Alla praktiska detaljer (check in/check out, etc) fungerade mycket väl. Lägenheten är fint inredd och har allt man behöver. Den ligger centralt med bara några minuters promenad från centrum. Jag kan verkligen rekommendera att hyra Victorias lägenhet och har själv redan bokat den igen.
Fantastic flat within the centre of Oxford, everything was in walking distance. The flat was clean and tidy. Victoria's instructions were very clear and the user manual was very useful with suggestions of what to do in the surrounding area. The flat is situated at the top floor with no lift access so just be aware if people in your party have difficulty getting up and down stairs. Parking was great!
Loved the flat, loved the area. Had a great night in Kazbar following Victoria's recommendation.
Everything was as described and photographed. Fruit, milk, bread, water left in the fridge which was a lovely touch.
Would definitely book this property again.
This flat is simply gorgeous! Full of light, spotlessly clean and - importantly - large comfy bed. Everything you need for cooking and making coffee. Victoria was very available by phone especially at the crucial moment of getting into the flat. Breakfast had been laid on for us, she was an excellent and friendly host. I had a brilliant one night stay here with my friend and we had a night out in Oxford followed by a lazy lie-in the next morning - check out is a very civilized 12 noon. Highly recommend! We hope to come back....

Victoria was an excellent host. She communicated before and after we arrived, allowed us to drop out bags off early and made the whole process very easy. Her flat was great and provided a convenient walk into Oxford. Loved up to the pictures and would highly recommend.
