Pictures do not tell the story!
Second bedroom is about 6sqm. No soaps or shampoos. Massive cleaning fee, yet, you have to ensure kitchen is left as it was found. NOT worth the cost. I will not return to this accommodation.

Very nice and clean little apartment close to downtown Oxford. Had almost everything you need, even a little apartment-size washer/dryer. I think it was newly refurbished, so did have a couple of things missing: no pepper in the pepper shaker, no spices in the spice rack, and it could use a couple of small furniture items to set things on like suitcases and bathroom towels in the bathroom, but other than that it was a wonderful stay and I would definitely come here again. Owners are gracious and helpful.

Far from city center
Very far away from the city center, about a 30 minute walk. Apartment and staff was nice. One bedroom was very, very, small, basically a closet with a bed in it, had to climb on the bed in enter the room. Some mold in the bathroom. Not the best, wish we stayed closer to the city.

The property is situated in a convenient location for transportation, and groceries shopping. The property staff was nice, responsible and assessable. We had a few issues with the flat and they sent a handyman the morning following out check-in night. The property was clean and well stocked with linen and paper supplies. Kitchen is stocked with necessities like utensils, not a lot but meets daily needs. Our major complaint is that the place is not well maintained. We had the following issues which were unresolved as of out check-out day: 1) designated parking space was occupied by other cars. I thought this should have been resolved by out second night of stay. 2) the laundry washer was not operable. Coin operated launderettes were inconvenient and expensive in the neighborhood.
