Helena (and her cat) made me feel perfectly welcome and happy for my entire stay. And it was a long stay, for which I am eternally grateful! All the amenities were perfect and the breakfast provisions were great. The cat was also delightful! Highly recommended for anyone visiting Oxford.

I had an excellent stay at Helena and Jeremy's--my second in two years. Both are kind and hospitable while the property itself is very well located with easy access to the town centre as well as to Wolvercote, Port Meadow and the Thames Walking Path. Outstanding in every way.

I stayed for one month and enjoyed very much my time. When I arrived, Helena and Jeremy were away but, their neighbour Helge welcomed me. They are excellent communicators and pleasant people to be around. The house is spacious, clean and very well equipped. There is a garden to chill out. It takes about 20min to walk to the center and there are plenty of cafes and shops within walking distance. It really worked for me because it was quite and away from crowds. Staring a day with their breakfast was a real bonus!! I highly recommend Helena's place. Thanks, Helena for hosting me. It was my pleasure.

I spent two months at Helena's place and I really enjoyed my stay there. Helena and her husband are very friendly and welcoming, and they want you to feel comfortable. If you need anything, you can just ask as they are always willing to help you. Also, their house is spacious and well-equipped, with a beautiful garden. It is very close to the bus stop and within walking distance from shops, restaurants, pharmacies, etc. Last but not least, Helena's husband will have delicious homemade bread ready for you every morning. I would highly recommend this place!

I stayed with Helena and Jeremy for 3 nights. And this was indeed one of the best airbnb experiences I've ever had. And it's not only due to the house itself, which is absolutely beautiful and cozy, but also due to incredible hospitality and kindness of my hosts, Helena and Jeremy, whom I am so grateful for making my stay at their place so wonderful! Thank you very much indeed! To the prospective guests: do not hesitate, just book this amazing listing. The neighbourhood is extremely quite and you will definitely have a tight sleep, the breakfast with home-made bread and delicious Frank Cooper's "Oxford" Marmelade will serve as a tasty start for your day and I'm sure, Jeremy and Helena will be more than happy to help you if you have any questions about Oxford, for they are so kind and pleasant persons to talk to!

Helena User ProfileHelena is a superhost.

I am a university lecturer and married to Jeremy who is a property consultant. We have four children who have all grown up and left home. They visit from time to time at weekends, but as we have 6 bedrooms, there is plenty of room for everyone. We love gardens and gardening as you can see.
