Lovely place in a quiet neighbourhood. Matteo & Martina were welcoming and they helped me with any information I required. The bedroom & bathroom were clean & comfortable. Clean towels were provided. Breakfast with cereals were laid out at the table each morning. The bus to Oxford Centre is only 3 mins away. I enjoyed my visit.
This is a good place to stay for a couple of days while you see Oxford and the surrounding area. Mateo welcomed us and left us to our own devices, which was fine. The room was fine and the bed adequate, and it was good to have cereal and toast provided. Good for those on a budget.
We stayed three nights at Matteo and Martina's house. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The shared bathroom had a decent shower and bidet. The bus which takes you into Oxford centre is only a short walk away and very handy.
We were disappointed with the breakfast which a previous review had pointed out, but, we hoped it had been rectified.
All in all our stay was good.
Pleasant stay with a very accommodating and friendly couple. Borrowing a bike made the experience more memorable. Thanks
Dear Matteo and Martina,
Thank you so much for your hospitality and we enjoyed being your guests. Your home was very nice, clean and neat - we appreciated your kindly support to allow us to use your washer and dryer. Do not worry about the breakfast, it was a fun memory for us - next time when we will stay in your home again, we will definitely look for the food in the living room not in the kitchen room.

Matteo greeted us promptly at 6pm and showed us the room and amenities. The room was spotless (we could even see the carpet had just been vacuumed!) and bright. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed reading the Oxford book and National Geographic magazines.
Using the bikes saved us ~£14 in bus fares daily, and the trails are so beautiful around Oxford. If you've never rode alongside traffic before, don't worry - we hadn't either and drivers are very friendly towards cyclists there.
We used the kitchen to cook and the clothes washer and had no problems. To dry our clothes, Matteo helpfully provided a drying rack.
The only minor disappointment was breakfast - we were provided cereal and bread, and when the cereal was finished it wasn't replenished.
Matteo and Martina are very friendly and enjoy company. Their house is well-kept and we really enjoyed our stay!
We had a very nice and very comfortable stay at Matteo's and Martina's house in Oxford. We were made to feel welcome, all communication was excellent, everything was provided as set out in the description, the location was within easy reach of the centre of Oxford. So we would definitely stay there again!
