What an amazing find. We spend a lovely weekend in this apartment and would never stay any where else in Oxford after this. We were three friends meeting up from various areas of the UK somewhere unknown to us all and it was just lovely.
We arrived just as it was dark and the little street was bustling from the two pubs and there was a string of fairy lights lighting decorating the proceedings. We fell in love before we even got out of the car. We were warned that parking could be tricky, I guess we were lucky as we parked around the corner over night and then were able to move the car to the free space the following morning for the rest of the weekend.
The apartment itself was brand new and decorated flawlessly with lots of great finishing touches. There was tea and coffee provided and even a pint of milk waiting for us, just such a nice touch. The bed rooms are both of a lovely size and very comfortable, we all slept very well. The first night we used the kitchen and stayed in to eat, it felt like a home from home.
Although we did wander around the city centre on the first day, on the second day we didn't leave North Parade Avenue, out of complete choice. We visited a café, the pub Rose and Crown and the Indian restaurant. Quite an indulgent little street, and there are more places to eat that we didn't have room to go into.
We didn't have to get in the car all weekend until the drop off back to the train station, such a brilliant location for the university parks and the city centre.
The owner was in touch with us making sure that we were sorted and was very nice to us as we were leaving. (a tiny bit late) And the chocolates on arrival went down very well with a lovely cup of tea.
The only negative is that we stayed for 2 nights, we all could have stayed there forever.
What an absolute find! Great apartment, fantastic location. Plenty of space for two couples.
The apartment was really clean, everything was perfect. Would highly recommend.
Looking forward to going back! A massive thanks to Caroline and Alan for all the information and tips, made our stay all that much better.
