I will be present when guests stay and I am happy to interact with you as much as you want me to. Also, if there is anything you need to improve your stay, do let me know.
The apartment is in a new residential development situated by the canal in Summertown. The Summertown shops are only a short 3 minute walk away where you will find a range of quality shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. There is also a leisure centre in the area that has a swimming pool, gym, squash courts amongst other facilities.
There are also a variety of local walks onto small nature reserves and Port Meadow in the nearby area.
Summertown is excellently located just 2 miles from the centre of Oxford. The easiest way into the city is by bus with the nearest stop being only a three minute walk away at the Summertown shops. The bus service runs every 5 minutes in and out of the city with the journey taking about 5 minutes.
Alternatively, if you are feeling energetic you can take a scenic walk along the canal that will bring right into the city centre in about 30 minutes.
Access to London from Oxford is also quite easy with the Oxford Tube running regular buses that will get you into central London in just over an hour at reasonable prices, single £15 or return £18. The Gloucester Green bus station in Oxford has buses that leave regularly to Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. Oxford trains go directly to Paddington station in London.
No children (I have nothing against them it's just that my apartment is not really a child friendly environment)
Thanks Donal. Really enjoyed our stay. We had the ideal experience with everything you'd expect and more from accommodation and a host.
The house is beautiful. Everything is very clean. Donal is a very friendly person. We enjoyed staying at his place. He is also very kind to prepare such a nice breakfast for us. We really appreciate it.
We had a great first experience using this website. We were visiting Oxford to see our daughter. The unit was set up perfectly for us. We can say our host communicated perfectly prior with us. We were coming all the way from Australia, it was home away from home. Thanks Donal.
Extremely welcoming and friendly host. This has to be the tidiest property I've even been to. Local amenities just a few minutes walk away.
Great value for money. Will certainly return when next in that part of Oxford.
Donal is a very friendly and welcoming host. He communicated with us promptly on all our queries. Everything in the unit was very neat and clean and Donal even set a breakfast for us every morning. The Summertown location is ideal and Oxford town is easily accessible from the unit.
