We have a lovely private room in our clean modern quiet apartment. Very quiet location; bars/restaurants just around the corner; central Oxford only a few minutes walk away. Excellent transport links to London/airports, coaches stop right outside.
We have a very comfortable single guest room/study available in our lovely central Oxford apartment. The room is equipped with a single bed, new pillows and fresh linen, a good work desk, chair, shelves and drawers. The apartment is clean and modern with two bedrooms, a bathroom with full-size bath, a large combined dining and lounge area, and a new fully-equipped kitchen. There is free wireless internet (WiFi). And there are plenty of books and DVDs to keep you amused!
Guests are very welcome to use more or less the whole apartment. In addition to the guest bedroom, guests may also use the living room/dining room, the kitchen - and, of course, the bathroom. (The only room guests can't access is the master bedroom.)
The apartment is in an extremely central and convenient location, just off St Clements. The diverse restaurants and bars of East Oxford are only a few minutes away; and it's only a 10-minute walk from the apartment to the city centre. There are three excellent restaurants within thirty-seconds walk of the apartment (one Italian, one Indian, and the third specialising in seafood). Everything you need to enjoy your stay in Oxford!
The apartment is very quiet, set back off the main road overlooking Angel and Greyhound Meadow and the beautiful grounds of Magdalen College. At the bottom of the garden there's a footbridge over the canal that takes you into the meadow - perfect for a pleasant stroll (weather permitting!). You can even sample punting - that quintessentially Oxfordian pursuit - with punts available for hire less than five minutes walk from the apartment!
The apartment has excellent transport links. There are 24-hour coaches to London and its airports that you can catch right outside the apartment. Similarly, buses to and from Oxford city centre and the train station are only a 60-second walk from the apartment.
Other Things to Note
We've both lived in Oxford for several years, and have been involved with the University as students and lecturers for just as long. As a result, we have really good knowledge of the city and the University, and we're eager to share it with you to ensure you get the most out of your stay!
Great time at John's, kind and friendly Home. Good location and really quiet. Recommending it!
John and Vanessa have a small, but very cosy room in their perfectly located apartment very close to Magdalen Bridge. Guests can use the whole apartment including the large and nicely decorated living room. Unfortunately I did not have time to interact with John for a longer time but he was very friendly and welcoming and very flexible in accommodating my arrival time.
John was an excellent host and v friendly and helpful even though I turned up late. The flat is immaculate, the bed comfy and the place is really quiet. Its also close to Greyhound meadow so I had a lovely walk to college along the Cherwell. Hope to stay again when I am next in Oxford.
John was the perfect host. He waited for me to arrive, greated me with a cup of tea,and provided directions by foot and by bus. He took time to look up bus route times and showed me maps. I never lost my way, which was really important as I was on a tight schedule.
John and Vanessa's apartment is in a gated complex in a cul de sac. It is a second floor walk up. It is very quiet (I slept with the window open). The bedroom is small (one person), but has a nice sized desk. In short, it was the ideal place for an overnight or short stay, particularly if you are coming in from Heathrow, as they are right around the corner from one of the Heathrow bus' stops.
Lastly, John is a delightful interlocutor. You will enjoy spending time with him.
This was my second stay at Vanessa and John's. I had once again a really good time. Everything was perfect.
Vanessa and John are friendly and welcoming hosts, the room is clean and comfortable and had everything I needed on my short visit to Oxford. Highly recommended.
Lovely people, lovely home! Vanessa and John's home is extremely clean, accessible, and the room is definitely private and well appointed.
I really enjoyed staying with Vanessa and John and I wish them all the best in the future (particularly with a little one on the way!)

I'm an environmental geographer, currently reading for my doctorate. I am Australian and live between Sydney and Oxford, spending a good deal of my time reading - either on the beach (Sydney), in very old libraries (Oxford), or researching at field sites in the Pacific. I share the apartment with my partner John, an academic lecturing in political and legal theory. Originally from Glasgow John has lived in Oxford for 11 years. He has a ridiculously good memory, knows way too much about cinema, and is just all round good fun.
