This is a lovely and well-equipped house in a very nice part of Oxford. My wife and I stayed here for five months in 2019 and greatly enjoyed it, and also enjoyed getting to know the fantastic hosts, Susanne and Paul. In terms of shopping, it is a five minute walk to Waitrose and a little further to Aldi, and for transport it is five minutes walk to the train station and ten minutes to the main bus station. For getting around Oxford there are high frequency buses along the Botley Road, just a couple of minutes walk away, yet the house is far enough away to not hear any road noise. The Thames path and other cycling opportunities are only two minutes away. The house is very pleasant, with modern kitchen and modern bathroom, and large enough that we were able to accommodate some short-term guests. Excellent John Gibson 1/8/2020 3:52:00 AM
We stayed here for 6 weeks in May/June 2019.

The house was perfect for us. It is divided into different levels (floors) so there is a lot of space and it never feels crowded, even with four adults staying there. It is an old/historic property but much of the interior living spaces have been recently remodeled and upgraded. The furnishings are agreeable and the place contains everything you could possibly need for a comfortable, relaxed stay. The study area on the ground floor, with two work areas, was particularly helpful as both my wife and I needed to spend time writing/working. The modern kitchen was fantastic and fully equipped. The top floor master suite was spacious, modern, and comfy.

The only slight drawback with the property was the family of wild foxes that lived in the back garden. While they were quite fun and cute to watch out the window, their presence limited our ability to fully utilize the outdoor area. It wasn’t really a big deal though because we were mostly either out exploring London or inside working and we didn’t really miss or need the garden space.

The neighborhood is great – busy, but not particularly noisy. It is an easy ten minute walk to the underground (Bakerloo Line in Zone 1) and there are convenient bus connections even closer. It is very close to central London and an easy walk to the Westminster Bridge. Despite being close to many big tourist attractions (Westminster/London Eye etc.), it doesn’t seem overly touristy -just more like a regular London neighborhood. There are a lot of pubs within easy walking distance. I recommend the Three Stags for food and ambiance, the Tankard for specials/low prices (2 for 1 burger night on Monday), and the Doghouse for a rowdier more lively vibe. There are some decent restaurants nearby; Kennington Tandoori has good Indian food. And, there is a large Tesco supermarket about 15 minutes away by foot. Susanne, the owner who handles the rental, was easy to work with and accessible. She interacted with us in a very professional yet friendly manner and overall the entire experience was a pleasant one.

So, bottom line: a fabulous house in a wonderful neighborhood with great owners. Enough said.

This is a lovely, lovely home in a very central location. As a Londoner, returning to UK for a research visit, I had thought I knew the area quite well but was pleasantly surprised with the location as it was so easy to get everywhere, by bus, taxi, tube or foot. Much more central than I had thought. The house is on a busy road hence the great bus routes, but is very quiet as set well back from the street. The kitchen is great with all mod appliances. The beautiful master suite at the top of the house is gorgeous. So much to do nearby with award winning pub for Sunday lunch, not to mention the bars and restaurants of the South Bank and Waterloo and easy to get to all the major universities, library’s etc for a productive days work. The hosts responded so quickly to a problem despite being out of the country at the time. I can’t recommend this place enough. Thank you for a great stay in London.

We stayed in this lovely home for three months, and thoroughly enjoyed it! The large study is very light and has one desk looking into the walled back garden and another looking into the front garden. The lounge is also large, the two bedrooms are very comfortable, and the kitchen, heating, washer/dryer, etc. are all very modern. The street can be busy, but the bus to the British library stops right across the street, the bus to the Royal College of Music stops in front of the house, and it is an easy walk to the South Bank. Perhaps most important, the owners were wonderful; we couldn't have asked for better hosts. Excellent Kathleen Bollard 8/19/2018 1:13:00 PM
Susanne was a friendly and hospitable host and made us extremely comfortable in her lovely, well appointed Georgian home which was as described. It is modernized in the ways that matter and Susanne thought of every detail to make her guests feel welcome and cozy, from luxurious flannel sheets to loaded oyster cards, to a well stocked and equipped kitchen and dining room. She was available to help us with any questions we had without being intrusive and was very easy to deal with. We look forward to our next stay! Excellent susan 2/28/2018 12:06:00 AM
