The apartment has 1 bedroom with a king bed and a firm pocket coil sprung mattress. The separate kitchen is loaded with good quality appliances including a Krups bean to cup coffee machine, dishwasher, fan assisted oven, ceramic hob, combination microwave, fridge freezer and a washer dryer. The living and dining room is quirky in architecture and contemporary in design and includes a deep seated comfortable Sofa, Smart TV-DVD and Sound Bar. The bathroom includes a walk in shower. The entire apartment space excluding the bathroom is very bright and airy due to the number of windows. Cleanliness and Comfort are our first priority. We like to add some defining touches and include those little things a visitor may forget to bring with them. When travelling, often time is short, we provide the information, basics and comfort so guests may maximise their time spent in Oxford for sightseeing, business and relaxation.

Marc greeted us when we arrived and showed us everything we needed to know. He was very friendly and helpful. The apartment is so cute and comfortable. It has everything you might need! And it's only a short walk into downtown Oxford.

Marc's place is great, really well decorated, stylish, cosy and incredibly well stocked with all essentials. Would definitely go back. It's about a 20 minute walk to the centre of Oxford and has some good restaurants and pubs nearby.

Perfect stay in a lovely apartment. Marc's place is in a great location to see Oxford. It had everything we needed and was well stocked with food supplies - he even put a beer in the fridge!

This is a really lovely apartment with a great host. Marc has compiled probably the biggest guide I have seen from an Airbnb host with tons of restaurants and places of interest. Marc met us and helped us carry our bags up, which was really very nice! The apartment is very well appointed with nice towels, and linens, really awesome kitchen appliances, power converters, fast internet, a nice array of t.v. channels, and awesome breakfast. It is a bit of a walk (20 minutes or so) to most of the sites, but a pleasant one along the River Thames that we enjoyed. I would also say it is about 10 minutes to Christ Church Meadow which is a lovely park that leads into Oxford. I also really liked the architecture of the house, it felt very authentic and made us feel like locals. If you feel like cooking there is a Tesco Express just 10 minutes up the road. Overall a great stay, and I would love to return.

I had a great stay in Marc's flat - everything was exactly as expected from the listing, and the self check in and out was really helpful as a business traveller. The amenities provided in the flat are above and beyond what would be expected, which was a nice touch!

The flat was exactly how it was advertised. Marc was a lovely and helpful host. A quick bus ride or a 20-minute walk into the city. The area was fairly quiet. As this is not our first visit to Oxford and our aim was mainly library work, we enjoyed the quiet evenings at home. We are looking forward to our next visit.

We, Diane & Marc are a Mother and Son team who have welcomed visitors to Oxford for many years. Our experience in hospitality will provide guests with a professional feel and an enjoyable stay. Cleanliness and Comfort are our first priority. We like to add some defining touches and include those little things a visitor may forget to bring with them. When travelling, often time is short, we provide the information, basics and comfort so guests may maximise their time spent in Oxford for sightseeing, business and relaxation. Both of us have a passion for cooking, I enjoy gardening, being outdoors and City breaks, Diane is an animal lover and also spends a lot of time in Greece. Many years ago Diane often let out a room in our home to students. It was a great experience for us to meet people from many different cultures and its a privilege for us both to be able to continue welcoming visitors to Oxford.
