My husband and I live in a quiet house 10 minutes walk from the train station, 5 minutes from the Park & Ride, and 20 minutes from the town centre (regular busses will get you there in 5 minutes). We have a spacious, light double bedroom available, with an en-suite shower room and small fold-out desk. We are happy to share details of places to visit in the town's historic centre, or walks along the nearby river and around Oxford's beautiful Port Meadow (just 10 minutes from our doorstep).
We speak English, Dutch, French, and German and welcome guests from all over the world to our home. We do require guests to be able to speak one of these languages at a level that allows for basic communication with us - for example, it is important that we can agree on a time for you to check in.
Occasionally, guests who are new to Airbnb have been surprised to discover that we also live in the house. To avoid any misunderstanding, please note that this listing is for a private en-suite bedroom within our home. You are most welcome to make light use of the kitchen and downstairs living area, but do be aware that we live here ourselves.
We look forward to welcoming you to our home!
I'm a writer who's lived in Oxford on and off since studying here 2004-7. My husband and I moved back permanently at the end of 2016 and we're enjoying the city more than ever!
