Gotta be honest, it was just ok...
There were things that worked well about this property, and one significant one that didn't, which was that one of the showers didn't drain, so couldn't be used, but you didn't know that until you were in it and wet. We made it work with one shower, but we had paid to have two. To their credit, they said it was repaired while we were out, but I didn't want to risk another half finished shower, so continued to use the working bath. The home also had a stuffy smell, covered by a strong smell of house cleaner, which we tried to air. Generally, the house was clean but really could use a good deep cleaning, including a mold spot on the ceiling in the non-working shower. The mattresses are very firm, almost like a futon style pad, which wasn't terrible for some, but for older individuals, or those who have sore backs etc., this was uncomfortable. Generally, the home served us well enough for our short stay. It was nice to have so many bedrooms and the doors opening onto the back patio were lovely. Lots of natural light and all the basics provided, with a full working kitchen and good communication from the managers. With a little TLC, this one could be great.
Thank you for giving us a shot, and even more for leaving us this review. I am sorry to hear of your experience in my home. This is not the usual standard I keep my home to and there really are no excuses. I've looked into the general maintenance issues with the StayBeyond team to get the home to a great standard once more. I am sorry again that you did not have a positive experience during your stay but I do hope you will consider staying in my home again now that the issues are being dealt with.
Parking was really difficult as only 2 hours available and residents only parking over night. 1 banister spindle was broken on the upstairs landing so I was worried about my baby falling through. The shower on the top floor didn’t drain very well and is at risk of flooding over.
Comfortable condo in Oxford
We had plenty of room for the four of us in the Stratford Townhouse. Three levels, four bedrooms, comfortable beds, great shower and bathrooms, reasonably well furnished kitchen, nice quiet neighborhood. I would give five stars except for the great difficulty in finding parking. There are no spaces available near the house as permits are required for over-night parking. We finally found a space several blocks away.
It's always a pleasure seeing you.Thanks so much for your beautiful review! I fully appreciate your comments about my properties and services. We do hope that we gain your best choice when it comes to looking for a staycation. We're happy that you're happy, and we're looking forward to your next visit.
BEAUTIFUL LARGE HOUSE & FANTASTIC LOCATION
This house was absolutely perfect for the 6 of us! (but sleeps more if necessary!). It's a beautiful house and it has a lovely homely feel about! It feels like the owner wants you to have a comfortable stay as it is perfectly kitted out for your needs! And very importantly the location is awesome- easy walking in to oxford city centre but local pubs/ bars nearby aswell There are details about where you can park your car as it is unlikely to be outside the house but either you can park nearby or in the carparks from the details they supply you! We would all very highly recomend this home!
