“Perfect. Everything we wanted & more. Great apartment & great location.”

As a large group of friends traveling together we really appreciated the mixture of communal and private spaces this lovely apartment has. The layout of The White House meant that we could eat and chat together in the large main areas when we wanted to socialise or find a quieter room to relax in. The kitchen is spacious enough that even with far too many cooks we still managed to all get along. The rooms are in great condition and it's really quite well placed for getting into the city centre. The neighbourhood seemed relaxed and a little slabbed area out the back is a nice sun-trap. I would recommend this property to anyone. The owner is very lovely and easy to deal with and they provide a little welcome pack showing the local facilities. We all agree that it made our trip so much more fun and hassle free and we all wish to stay here again in the future.

“A fabulous home walking distance from Oxford centre”

Just had a great 3 nights stay at the White House.
Everything as described, Hanna was great throughout, her communication was excellent and
Met us at the home on time.
The house was extremely clean throughout.
The beds were really comfy too!
It is a lovely 15 min walk through the countryside jnto the centre of Oxford! There are several little shops nearby for supplies and the Londis is a two minute walk way, very handy indeed!
Really quiet and safe area, no problems with parking at all.
There were only four of us, so it was huge!
The only improvement would be a larger TV, not that we were in much, but for the size of house a larger TV is needed! Although the little television did work just fine! The wifi was great also!
Would stay here again if visiting the area for sure!
Thanks Hanna for letting us enjoy your property, if we come back to this area, we will definitely get in touch!

“Great location, lots of space for everyone, and great features!”
Reviewed March 7, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

White House was great home base for us while attending family wedding. Seven of us gathered from across Canada and California. Location and house just what we'd hoped for and as described. Pleasant, short walk to downtown (cows and ducks included), convenient bus and taxi service, plus used parking spot for rental car too. Kitchen well equipped (we entertained other out-of-town guests) and glad to have laundry too. Hanna was great, providing extras when asked. We enjoyed back garden space too as weather was lovely.

Layout of house was good for people on different schedules, and comfy space for family meals. Truly enjoyed our visit. White House allowed us to comfortably stay together, while exploring Oxford and area. Thanks, Hanna!

“Oxford area delight”

We booked with fairly short notice but we really lucked out with the White House! My husband and I, along with our daughter and her fiancé and another friend all traveled to Oxford for a long weekend. The White House provided us with lots of bedrooms and a large comfortable living area and kitchen. The large master bedroom ensuite had a tub, perfect for soaking in to get rid of the London grime. Another bathroom with a shower was also on the second floor and a toilet on the ground floor. On the top level were two more bedrooms, perfect for young children, for a total of 5 bedrooms.

We had taken the train from London, so took a taxi the night we arrived but after that walked each day into Oxford, approx. 20-25 minutes and even walked to the train station on the day we left, a bit of a longer walk but doable.

Oxford is an amazing place to visit and the White House a great place to stay while visiting.

We stayed with six in the house, plenty room for everyone. It's a very clean and light house. We all enjoyed our stay, in a very quiet environment but very close to the city center. A nice 10 minute walk trough a park will guide you to the lively city. Our next stay in Oxford will definitely be here again.

“Location, location, location”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I stayed in The White House, Oxford for two months in the summer of 2013. The two double and o e single bedrooms were perfect for when my sisters came for short stays. There are also two attic bedrooms suitable for children.
The house is very well appointed including a good kitchen with everything you would need. An ensuite and a main bathroom is perfect.
But, it's the location of the house that was the standout feature for me. Bus stop just 100 metres down the road, a great convenience store nearby, and a fabulous easy walk into the city centre passing through fields (with cows) and a running weir. The house has a rear garden that could be lovely with a little attention and a separate dining room for great informal dining.
British free to air television is quite poor so connection to a basic pay TV package and a bigger TV would put this holiday let into the excellent range.
Owners are very helpful and friendly, they went out of their way for me.
I loved my stay at The White House and plan a revisit.
