Couldn't fault the host or the accommodation. We received a lot of great recommendations of things to do and places to eat etc. for the area and had everything we needed in the apartment. Couldn't ask for more.
We really enjoyed our stay at Jonny's place in Oxford and found it just as he described in his write up. He was a very helpful host and gave us information about places to see, places to eat, and transportation in Oxford. He was always prompt to get back to us with responses to our questions. There is a bus route a few minutes walk from his place that will take you to the heart of Oxford.
Følte oss velkommen. Leiligheten svarte til forventningene og lå i et forholdsvis rolig strøk i en grei distanse til (website hidden) og pen leilighet med effektiv planløsning. God informasjon om leiligheten og utleiestedet fra utleier.
The flat was bright and clean as advertised. Jonny provided supplies for breakfast which, though we didn't need them, are a useful bonus. I would definitely recommend this place.
Jonny was a fantastic host, leaving suggestions for things to do, and responded immediately to any questions I had. The apartment is beautiful with a great kitchen, if you like to cook. While it is a tad outside of the downtown area (about a 12 minute drive), the location is still great and the apartment is worth it. Jonny told me about a running trail down near canals which are very close to the apartment, and the trail was beautiful. I recommend it if you enjoy running/walking/biking. I will definitely book with Jonny again! :)
Such a lovely flat! My sister and I had a fantastic stay. Everything was close and we loved seeing Blenheim Palace. Thank you so much! Plus, the beds are super comfortable!
I have stayed at Jonny's Oxford flat on numerous occasions. Every time things work flawlessly. Jonny is a great host, punctual in providing information and the flat is great. Its sunny, smart and roomy
About the Host, Jonny
Hello there. I am an inveterate traveller and since I am a teacher of history in Oxford, UK, I am fortunate enough to have the time to wander around the world visiting galleries, museums and assorted places! I enjoy hill walking, mountain biking and play hockey in my spare time. Having stayed in many soulless hotels over the years I am now a big fan of Airbnb.
If you are a visitor to Oxford and would like advice about places to see in the city or in the surrounding countryside and suggestions about where to eat and drink, I'll be more than happy to give some pointers and insights! Please just ask me.
