Guest access

Self-service breakfast and full use of fully equipped kitchen. There is a washing machine with drier, ironing board etc

Interaction with guests

This is pretty much up to you...some people become involved in the family side of life in Jericho and others prefer to stay quiet and private but there is always a good interaction in the kitchen area.

Other things to note

There is a special filtered water tap so you can re-fill your bottle. I have a hair dryer and shampoo/conditioner for you if required.

House Rules
Check in is anytime after 2PM

Everyone expected to behave extremely well! In fact, I like guests to feel at home but to respect the house and any other guests. Also they need to be clean and tidy up after themselves if they use the kitchen. I clean the kitchen and bathrooms very frequently so they are always fresh.

I loved my stay at Alison's. She is a wonderful host - warm, welcoming, generous, interesting and funny. I felt at home from the moment I stepped into her lovely home. The room is on the top floor and has one of the most comfortable beds I've slept on - the claims are true! I loved looking out at the Oxford roof-tops, changing skies and birds through the window. Super-quiet location - I slept with the window open. The house is so close to amenities (a lovely restaurant on the corner, which I’ll have to try on my return!) and to the city centre… yet in such a lovely, residential and safe street. Location could not have been more ideal. In summary, I couldn’t rate this weekend stay highly enough. I would go back just to sit at Alison’s kitchen table and dive onto that French bed again! If you like to feel safe, relaxed, comfortable and at home, don’t think twice about booking in with Alison. If you have the great pleasure to share a cuppa and a chat with her, the trip alone would have been worth it :) *Thank You*

Alison greets you very warmly. Then, you'll find a nice, clean, and very uniquely decorated flat in the heart of Oxford. It's quiet and the other guests you'll meet here will be incredibly friendly.

The location is excellent, within 5 to 10 minute walk from all spots including the coach and the train stations, the key buildings and the oldest universities. Alison's hospitality is very friendly. The room is impeccable and the bathroom, though small is perfectly functional.

Alison was very friendly and welcoming! I loved the vintage french bed and the white linnen and Alison even brought me flowers from her own garden! She was so kind to offer me her bike which was extremely useful. Cannot recommend Alisons home more! Thanks a lot

Alison is a wonderful host. I had a slight hiccup in my previous stay (pre-checkin) in the same town because of which I was a bit skeptical about my next stay. But what a turn around. She was so helpful in every way whether you want to know about the town/locality or things around the house or any other information during your stay. Its surely a home away from home. Thank you, Alison!

Dynamic, artistic mother of 4. Now hosting with my two sons Frank and Fred.
Our guests are very important to us and we like to respond quickly and positively to on the spot issues and to deal with anything that is not as you had expected or to cater for your particular needs as best we can. We all really enjoy the interesting people who pass through our house and many of them return, which is particularly nice and indeed most gratifying.
Much of my time is spent in the Algarve as I have a daughter farming there and I like to help. We are shortly going to be putting some rooms on Airbnb and there so look out for them!
