About Tom and Carol Sharpe

We are a retired and very active couple, who love Oxford and Ole Miss and want our guests to have a wonderful experience while visiting Oxford. Tom was a research professor at Ole Miss for 25 years; Carol was in small business in Columbia, Missouri before Tom brought her down to the little bit of heaven known as Oxford. We have grown children, an elderly cat, and a wonderful Bassett Hound who loves every living person and thing on this earth.

Tom and Carol Sharpe purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Tom and Carol Sharpe chose Mississippi

We built this guest quarters in 2013 primarily for visits of family and friends. It lives in a Historic Preservation District and matches the architecture of the main house, which was built in 1896. We think you will find it to be very charming.

What makes this apartment unique

The guest quarters are located just 3 blocks from the Oxford Square, which bustles with shopping, restaurants and night life. It is located on a second story and has a marvelous view of the old, heavily wooded neighborhood. It features an open living room/kitchen/dining area with vaulted ceilings and hardwood (bamboo) floors, and has a Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. The apartment is flooded with natural light during the day and provides privacy at night.

A little Gem in Oxford

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much, we can't wait to come back and visit our son again at Ole Miss. The location was prime, just blocks from the Square. It was up to date and comfortable and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly! We will definitely try and stay there again.

  • 4 of 5

Totally stocked kitchen, super clean, very comfortable bed. We were thrilled with the location..easy walk to town...my only suggestion would be for 2 little side tables by sofa & chair...there wasn't anywhere to put your "stuff". Overall we loved it!

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of a place to stay in Oxford. My husband and I have stayed in many different places, including hotels and other rentals, but this is the best because of the location to the square and to BBB (everything within walking distance to downtown area), as well as the cleanliness and comfort of the apartment. Tom and Carol were lovely, too. We will most definitely stay here again!

Location

The Oxford Square features up-scale shopping, an extremely vibrant music scene, the finest bookstore in the galaxy, a wide variety of restaurants and exciting night-life. Thursday evenings during its season, don't miss Thacker Mountain Radio--a real gem of Oxford. The University Museums contains an astounding collection of Greek and Roman antiquity, art of the South, and regular special exhibits. And if you have not been to Rowan Oak--William Faulkner's home--it is a must see!
