About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Location is the best thing about my house. It is walking distance to the historic Oxford square (1.5 miles) and 2 miles from campus as well. It is a great house for folks who like to be in and around the action. We have a fenced in back yard and pets are welcome free of charge. If you would like to have a cook out the back deck will be ideal. I have the house professionally cleaned before each rental and make sure to have some beer or wine and fresh cut flowers waiting on our guests. It matters to me that you enjoy your stay.

Keywords: renovated, close to square, close to campus

About Heather Outlaw

I am a Special Education teacher at Lafayette Upper Elementary School. I lived in Oxford for most of my life. My family moved here when I was 10 years old from Cheraw SC and we have been here ever since. I have 2 nieces and 2 nephews that I adore along with the rest of my family. We love Oxford and Ole Miss. We work together to ensure that our rental home is in top shape for football season.

Heather Outlaw purchased this house in 2002

Why Heather Outlaw chose Mississippi

This house is all about location. My bought this home as a second home. We have managed to keep the renters in the family. First my sister rented the home and now it is mine. I live here with my two small dog Lovie and Lollie. The house is located on a large lot with a fenced in yard. It is located at the end of Garfield. It is close to everything with plenty of space and privacy.

What makes this house unique

The main attraction to my house is the fact that it is close to everything you would want to do in town.

Great house with a great deck

  • 4 of 5

Overall we thought the house was great. We were in town for a football game and the house was close to the stadium as well as the square. The large deck outback was great at night as we were able to relax and enjoy the weather.

Perfect headquarters for a football weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group of three couples stayed here for the Ole Miss-Arkansas weekend.

I thought it was perfect for a football weekend.

If you want a Holiday Inn environment, book the Holiday Inn. It's an older house, obviously decorated and maintained by young men. Nothing frilly or fancy. The furniture all about comfort, not looks, and the pictures on the walls are old album covers. Good big screen TV for football. Made the guys feel like we were back in college.

It is very clean, we were accompanied by our wives, they are very particular about that. The cleaning met their stringent standards. They were very comfortable with the house.

The house was fine for three couples, we had plenty of room and were very comfortable. The back deck was great for am coffee and for grilling. The back yard is crazy big. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet.

The location was the best thing . Its an easy, pleasant walk to the Grove and the Square.

No parking, no designated driver. You'll end up going out a lot more and having a lot more fun since its so easy to get around.

The owner was very reliable, easy to work with and left us wine, beer and cookies No complaints,

In the interest of full disclosure, we did see one cockroach in the kitchen Friday night. We had just arrived and may have let it in ourselves while bringing in the suitcases. We did not see another one the whole weekend, I'm am pretty sure this was an isolated thing and not a problem.

Overall, really liked the house and would strongly recommend it for a football weekend. If it is still available in two years when the Hogs come back, we will definitely try to get it again.

Oxford Stay

  • 4 of 5

Listing and photos were accurate. Property was clean and well maintained. Was a bit surprised to discover owner just moves out for the duration of rental and leaves all his personal items in house. Would recommend at least clearing out a bit of space in the closets. Also surprised when we came home one night and owner's roommate was in the house because he was unaware of our rental. That said, the owner was extremely helpful and went out of his way to assist us. The back deck was a pleasure, and the bird and squirrel watching a delight. Thanks for a great graduation weekend.
