I am from Oxford and I love to travel. I usually make at least 3 holidays a year. Last year I travelled to Colombia, Bhutan, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, France and Mallorca.
Karen was very welcoming, and very helpful with communication on the run up to our visit. The house itself is very well finished and furnished and feels very homely, ideal for exploring oxford. Would love to stay again.
I recommend very highly and would definitely choose to stay here again. Karen is a very welcoming hostess and communication was prompt and efficient. I slept extremely well - the bed is very comfortable, the room is quiet and I had exclusive use of a bathroom which has both bath and an excellent shower. The house is pristine and charmingly decorated and I loved its location on Osney Island. It took me about 20 minutes to walk to the Radcliffe Camera from here - I appreciated being able to use the streetplan of Oxford which Karen provided,
A very cosy home and so close to the centre of Oxford. We had everything we needed to make our stsy so comfortable and Karen had left the house stocked with food and drinks.
A shame we couldn't have stayed longer. Thank you Karen
The house is perfect for students such as myself who attend the business school. The home is incredibly clean and welcoming. Karen goes out of her way to make things right. It definitely feels like home away from home. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need make yourself at home. It is only a 15 minute walk from the business school and in a very quite area.
I would highly recommend anyone looking for temporary accommodations in Oxford to use this as your first option.
Karen was very welcoming and helpful - keen to make me feel comfortable and at home. The flooding in Oxford over the night I stayed added a bit to the adventure - she's got good water barriers all organised, though, so there was never really any danger of getting soggy feet!
Thanks again Karen.
Karen was lovely and very helpful. Her place is both elegant and cosy. We had the bathroom all to ourselves and loved the decor everywhere.
Things went very smoothly and we loved our stay, we'll be back!
We stayed at Karen's house with 3 adults and 2 children over the New Year and found the house ideally situated and the house/host very welcoming. There were a number of possible changes that we had to make to our booking and Karen was very flexible and helpful. The house was lovely and clean with plenty of fresh towels and coffee and tea available for when we arrived, our host had also left detailed information so we could work all of the electrical/heating appliances. Karen had also left us a printout with recommendations of places to visit and eat in Oxford. I would definitely recommend Karen's house to anyone wanting to visit Oxford especially families and we all felt very at home in the house. Thank you Karen for our enjoyable stay.
Had a great break away at Karen's house. Stayed over the Christmas period and was a fantastic place to have Christmas dinner all together. The pub around the corner, the punter, is really nice too. Very easy to walk into town, either along the river or through the city. Had a great time in Oxford, very relaxing!!
Karen gave us a lovely welcome and the weekend worked really well for us as an extended family of 6 (grandparents, parents, a toddler and baby). Karen warned us about the steep stairs which could be a hazard to less careful little ones or less agile older ones. We loved the well equipped kitchen, good bathrooms and extremely comfortable beds. The close proximity to the city centre meant that the parents could walk to their friends' wedding at the Ashmolean, my niece at Wadham could easily join us for lunch at the local pub and we could explore Oxford from our base. Karen provided a cot for the baby, showed us where the nearest playpark was and organised parking permits. A great multi-purpose stay in a cleverly renovated house.
We had a really nice staying by Karen's house, it was quite, comfortable, very well designed and very close to the city centre.
Even if we hadn't the opportunity to meet her, she prepared everything to let us enjoy Oxford at its best.
Karen was a very pleasant and considerate guest. We would happily welcome her to stay in our cottage again.
