Interaction with Guests
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)
Excellent location in Oxford. Walkable (30 minutes) in to the centre of town and all the colleges, but in a quiet area with good unrestricted parking. Plenty of buses a few minutes walk from the flat if walking isn't on the cards. The room is lovely - clean, comfortable and as pictured. Donal was an amazing host - very welcoming and genuinely interested in making our stay a good one, without being intrusive. Can't recommend enough. Thanks Donal. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Enjoyed our stay in this lovely city! Donal was very nice and accommodating. It was great to have the use of our own bathroom, including shampoo and toothpaste :) he also provided a nice breakfast for us and was happy to answer any questions we had about traveling around (quite a quick bus ride to Oxford center where the colleges are). Comfortable bed, too! Recommended!
Wyjazd do Oksfordu był moim pierwszym kontaktem z Airbnb i choć na początku miałem pewne wątpliwości co do wyboru, muszę przyznać, że rozwiązanie to jest jak najbardziej konkurencyjne dla zakwaterowania w hotelu.
Zacznę od gospodarza - Donal jest sympatyczny i gościnny. Żeby uniknąć trudności, jeszcze przed moim przyjazdem przesłał opis lokalizacji, w której znajduje się jego mieszkanie.
Podczas pobytu, Donal zdaje się być niezauważalny :-), więc można odnieść wrażenie, że całe mieszkanie jest do naszej dyspozycji. Pokój jest przyjemny, łóżko jak najbardziej wygodne, a łazienka wyposażona w niezbędne kosmetyki - prawie jak w domu.
Codziennie rano, na dobry początek dnia, w salonie czekało przygotowane śniadanie
Chociaż mieszkanie położone jest poza centrum, dojazd jest łatwy i szybki, a sama okolica jest bardzo przyjemna - wieczorem można nawet zobaczyć kaczki biegnące ulicą przed oknem, zapewne wracając do domu. Po całodniowym zwiedzaniu, widok taki to miła odmiana.
Podsumowując, wszystkim wybierającym się do Oksfordu, gorąco polecam tę propozycję i sam nie omieszkam z niej skorzystać podczas kolejnego pobytu!
Donal welcomed us warmly when we arrived and prepared breakfast for us in the morning. The room was cozy and quiet, very clean, the bed is very comfortable and the whole apartment is well equipped with everything one could desire. Public transportation is available in walking distance, but we enjoyed walking into the city center.
I would definitely book again ;)
What an absolute pleasure! Such a beautiful apartment and a wonderful host. Donal made us feel very welcome, and suggested great places to eat and pubs to visit (not to mention he provided breakfast for us!!) The location was perfect, a 30 minute walk along the canal which is absolutely beautiful. Thank you Donal for allowing us to stay in your home!
Staying at Donal's was my first AirBnB experience and it was great. Donal was friendly and helpful, the room and bathroom both great, and the breakfast very good too, with much more choice than I expected. Next time I'm in oxford I'll definitely stay at Donal's.
The room and the bathroom are cozy and comfortable. What surprised us was the bountiful breakfast. Thank you for your preparation.
