“Location, location, location”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I stayed in The White House, Oxford for two months in the summer of 2013. The two double and o e single bedrooms were perfect for when my sisters came for short stays. There are also two attic bedrooms suitable for children.
The house is very well appointed including a good kitchen with everything you would need. An ensuite and a main bathroom is perfect.
But, it's the location of the house that was the standout feature for me. Bus stop just 100 metres down the road, a great convenience store nearby, and a fabulous easy walk into the city centre passing through fields (with cows) and a running weir. The house has a rear garden that could be lovely with a little attention and a separate dining room for great informal dining.
British free to air television is quite poor so connection to a basic pay TV package and a bigger TV would put this holiday let into the excellent range.
Owners are very helpful and friendly, they went out of their way for me.
I loved my stay at The White House and plan a revisit.

“Good rental property, perfect for groups”
Reviewed March 22, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We booked this property for a friend's hen party and it was perfect. Close enough to town to walk in (had we wanted to!), good bedrooms, very clean and spacious, even for a group of 7. Only criticism is that we were told we couldn't use the two showers at once which slightly defeats the object of having two... Anyway, apart from that was just what we needed.

“Very comfy and homely - great value”

This house is fantastic value for money as it has five bedrooms so if you are travelling with a large family or group of friends it is ideal. There are plenty of bathrooms too!
The kitchen is the best room in the house - beautifully decorated with everything you need. Our favourite feature was the large fridge/freezer with ice and water machine! The washer and dryer are useful as is the dishwasher.
There is also a large garage which is particularly useful in Oxford as parking in the area is a well known problem!
The owners/landlords of the house were very helpful and everything we needed/requested was done for us quickly and nicely.
Its about a 25 minute (picturesque) walk into town, or about £7 in a taxi - so pretty good location.

Danke sehr für die Rezension! Es freut mich sehr, dass euer Besuch so erfolgreich war!

Auf Englisch // In English:
" We are a family with 3 teenagers (Girls) and we spent 10 days here. The property had lavish rooms, a well laid out kitchen and 2 bathrooms (very important with teenagers!). We cooked a lot, and there were many large pots available. The Wifi worked wonderfully, as well as the heating. The rubbish system was explained well. In around 10 mins you can reach the periphery of the centre of Oxford on foot. In around 25 mins you can reach the High Street. The Parking is good. Hanna was very friendly and helpful. There was a lot of information and flyers in the house, with tips for excursions in the local area. We enjoyed the trip very much and we can fully recommend the house."
