Spacious comfortable apartment in great position

5 of 5
We stayed for a week over Christmas. The flat is spacious and comfortable. It is 5 minutes walk to bars, restaurants and shop of Summer Town, Oxford. It is a couple of minutes walk to bus stop for regular buses into the centre of town if you don't want to walk. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

4 of 5
The owner Jacintha was very welcoming & supplied us with milk, tea & coffee etc as well as some delicious croissants, thank you. Stayed for a week Nov/Dec 2016. Very clean, heating, dishwasher, washer/dryer, Wi-Fi all worked very well. Large TV. Bus stop outside front door. Deposit returned promptly. Enjoyed our trips into Oxford & visited several of the collages, the Bodleian was very good.

We had a very pleasant stay in this cosy bungalow. It was very clean and the kitchen furnished with all basic appliances and utensils. Great WIFI and heating system. I cannot find anything negative about this property. An overall great experience.. I would definitely book this bungalow again if I visit Oxford again. Well done to the owners.
