Échanges avec les voyageurs
We will be present (living upstairs) at the listing during your stay and often using the living room during the evenings. We will be able to give you advice and instructions about Oxford and Headington.
As we do NOT do "Instant Book", we have control over who stays here, so you will NOT be disturbed by noises from other/inconsiderate guests in the middle of the night. Having the right sort of guests staying in our home is more important to us than just making as much money as possible.
We can offer self service "continental" breakfast with cereal fruit toast etc & occasional smoothies and eggs.
After getting up two steps at the front door, the bedrooms and shower only bathroom are all on the ground floor. So whilst not specifically set up for easy access, we might be able to help you. Please contact us with your specific needs

Guy and Sarah have been airbnb hosts since August 2014, (and as airbnb guest where we have done 5 in USA) We have also hosted paying guests for the last 6 years using a different scheme. We have also hosted guests who pay for their stay with their labours instead of money.
During September 2013 to August 2014 we travelled the world volunteering for our food and accommodation as we went. So we have seen both sides of the host/guest dynamic. As such we are very aware of what makes considerate guests and considerate hosts. We are mature and flexible and welcome communication to keep things working well.
We are normal approachable easy going people and both have blank Disclosure & Barring (Criminal Record Check) Certificates
