Our home is a clean and bright family home with wooden floors, a peaceful garden and sunny kitchen. We're on a friendly street lively East Oxford - just 2 minutes walk from cosmopolitan Cowley road, 2 minutes from the river and 15 minutes walk into town. Come and love it too!

The space

Our bright and sunny home is a peaceful and welcoming space - yet is minutes from anything you could possibly need.

The downstairs is an open plan, bright space. The front of the house is the living area, with two comfy sofas - one which is a large futon that turns into a comfy double bed - a wood burner, and a dining area with a table that can seat up to 6 (as we only have 6 chairs!).

There's a glass walled room with a skylight ceiling which is currently set up as a playroom.

Our kitchen is the place we spend all our time. It's a large, bright and airy space with walnut wood work surfaces, everything you'd need to cook with, and skylights and windows allowing the light to pour in. There's a small sofa that you can sit on while others cook (!) or watch the clouds above go by through the skylights.

The kitchen opens onto the garden, with patio doors leading onto the decking. The garden is a peaceful haven despite being close enough to Oxford city centre to sometimes be able to hear the church bells from the colleges! It's not immaculately polished but it's a lovely space to enjoy the English sunshine (when we have some!), picnic outside or just have a cup of tea under the apple tree (as long as it's not the autumn when apples might be falling off!).

Upstairs there's a family bathroom with a freestanding bath, newly installed shower and toilet.

There's a front bedroom with a kingsize bed, large wardrobe and windows overlooking the Victorian terraces and the street below. There's also our baby daughter's nursery room which we aren't planning to be used, but can be made into a single room on request.

Up another flight of narrower but proper stairs there is a large double room with a skylight and large windows overlooking the gardens of East Oxford.

Guest access

It's our home so we'll have things around that you can help yourself too. All we ask is that you look after it like you would your own house!
We do have some toys - a growing collection for our currently 4 month old daughter - and books etc that you are more than welcome to borrow, as well as a picnic hamper, all the kitchen utensils you could ever want, and many more things in between!

Interaction with guests

We will be around to welcome anyone who comes to stay as much as possible and give them some tips on the local area, show them how things work and generally check you're settling in ok. We've been lucky enough to travel quite a lot ourselves and love meeting people from down the road or across the seas!

If we can't be there in person ourselves for some reason, my lovely mum lives around the corner so it'll be her instead!

Other things to note

This is a terraced house so please be aware of our lovely neighbours.

We have bicycles if you want to borrow them.

We visited Oxford for 4 days in August and spent then at Cassie's place. The house is beautiful and very clean. The bedrooms are large and the place was like in the pictures and even better. Everything we needed was available. The house is located around 5 minutes walk from the central Cowley Street and around 15-20 minutes walk from the very center of the city. So the location is very good. Cassie was great: available, nice, communicative and very ready to help. We lost/forgot our back-pack and she made all efforts to get it back to us. We highly recommend the house for a family visit. Cassie - many many thanks!!!!

We loved Cassi's place. It was warm, bright, and the perfect location to meet all our needs while visiting relatives in Oxford. The bus stop was around the corner to link you to wherever you want to go, the grocery store was a short 5 block walk, restaurants were all within walking distance - coffee shops, pizza, all sorts of ethnic foodie places. But best of all was the home environment. Not only was it a great place to come home to after a long day of touring around, but it also was a great place to host our grandchildren for an afternoon. The garden is absolutely gorgeous and just the right size for a set of 4 year old twins and a big sister. We had alot of fun together and this home will be forever in our pictures of the great time we had in Oxford in 2017.

We stayed here for our daughter's graduation and loved every aspect of it. We were a party of 6 and the house accommodated us comfortably. It has a lovely garden even though we didn't have time to use it. The house is in a brilliant location and yet is very quiet. It is light, airy and stylish and has everything you could possibly need. The private car parking space was a real bonus. Finally Cassie was a very friendly and welcoming host and we can recommend the house without reservation.
