Comfortable Stay in a Warm and Inviting Home!

  • 5 of 5

I started looking for hotel rooms 6 months in advance for a football weekend in Oxford! I couldn't find one hotel, but it was a blessing in disguise. This beautifully decorated home turned out to be so much better and had more to offer than any hotel room. I couldn't get a restaurant reservation either , so we used the grill and had a steak dinner for my college son. The kitchen is fully equipped and I felt right at home. The beds were extremely comfortable and the location is close to campus for game day. Whitney was very easy to correspond with, and she helped me with all of my questions. I would highly recommend this home !!!!

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

It is very hard to find hotel rooms in Oxford when its a busy weekend on campus and this was a great alternative to a hotel stay. The lovely welcoming home was just minutes from campus and all of the activity while still being in a quiet residential neighborhood.
