We had a great stay at Jonny's apartment - it's a comfortable and well situated apartment. Jonny has gone to great lengths to be sure that the apartment is well equipped and that everything is easy to find and use, which was much appreciated! We would happily book again next time we're in Oxford!
Fantastic apartment with everything you need for a home from home stay. Jonny was so helpful and responded promptly to questions. Providing delicious croissants for our first morning breakfast was wonderful as we hadn't thought that far ahead.
I don't think it's mentioned in the blurb but there's a petrol station close by with a M&S food section. Very handy!
This was my first airbnb experience - I hope I haven't been utterly spoilt.
Immaculately clean with all you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Lovely flat and surprisingly quiet, easy to find with off street parking and very secure. Buses into town very close and routes in and around Oxford very easy. Lovely to be left a breakfast including milk and juice. Box of chockies as a welcome gift helped enormously . All very efficient and effective. Thank you.
L'appartement de Jonny est absolument idéal pour un séjour à Oxford. Calme, lumineux, moderne, décoré avec sobriété et beaucoup de goût. La résidence est sécurisée et agréable. Un parking privé est disponible. Il y a plusieurs arrêts de bus à proximité et on rejoint le centre historique d'Oxford très rapidement (environ 10 à 15 minutes), les bus sont fréquents.
Jonny est plein de sympathiques attentions (un petit-déjeuner complet était disponible pour le premier matin, de nombreux guides touristiques, plans de la ville, recommandations de pubs et restaurants...), il y a également tout le nécessaire pour cuisiner et le wifi est de très bonne qualité. Bref, tout était parfait, je n'ai absolument rien à reprocher à ce logement, je ne peux que recommander !!
En ce qui concerne Jonny, les échanges ont été très conviviaux, il nous a envoyé un guide détaillé pour trouver facilement l'appartement et pour en profiter au mieux. Nous ne l'avons pas rencontré en personne, mais l'arrivée et le départ se sont faits très simplement. Pendant le séjour, Jonny a échangé avec nous par email afin de s'assurer que tout se passait bien. Si vous passez à Oxford, réservez les yeux fermés chez Jonny!
Jonny had truly thought of everything to make our stay comfortable! Pre arrival - he was very good at informing us of details to gain access to his apartment. The apartment was well equipped and the information of the surrounding area was spot on. The place was excellent and I highly recommend it to anyone.
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.
