Nikol - Oct 2023 - VRBO

Great for family. The multistory layout of this home was great for a 3 generation family traveling together.

Kevin - Sep 2023 - VRBO

We were very happy with the house, its location, and the place in general. The neighborhood was nice and clean, and was well located to downtown Oxford.

Alexandra - Jul 2023 - VREO

Thames View was the perfect location for our family visit to Oxford – easily walkable to all the main sights, shops, and transportation, yet in a quiet neighborhood with a nice walking path along the river. Thank you!

Apr 2023

Exquisite location. Looking forward to staying again.

Feb 2023

Great location, lots space. Nice place.

Dec 2022

Brilliant! House was like a tardis: small on the outside but we opened the door, the space kept growing! Perfect for our family- of 7 adults aged 30+ so we loved the space. Furnished with good quality pieces – and beautiful art work. And books.. so many- and who has books that aren’t just show pieces these days! In heaven. Short Lets was very helpful and responsive. As for location? If you know anything about parking in Oxford( a nightmare!) , we could walk everywhere! Will likely come again as we return to the UK a lot. Only suggestion: a real paper instruction booklet! For eg the oven. A Smeg. Now that was weird and only got one working. Thankyou!

Great place to stay with 6-7 guests. Very quiet, clean and close walk to city center.

Nov 2022

We had a really enjoyable stay here with 3 generations of our family. The property is in a quiet location, with gorgeous views of the river from the living room and and top floor bedroom balconies. It is within a 5 min walk of the Westgate shopping centre which has a great selection of shops / restaurants. The main sites of Oxford are within a 20 – 30 min walk. There is off road parking for two cars. It is very comfortable, well equipped and we would be very happy to stay there again.

Nov 2022

A lovely place – very clean and well equipped and as described. There were only 4 of us so very spacious but plenty room for 7. Great location . Very quiet spot overlooking river but only 15 mins walk to centre, 5 mins walk to hop on off bus and John Lewis . 20 min stroll along river to where you can get a boat cruise. Would definitely recommend.

Nov 2022

We loved this place! It was absolutely perfect for a group of four to explore Oxford. Not only is it in a very cute, quiet neighborhood next to the river, but it was close to many colleges which made walking around to sightsee a breeze. The place was clean and well stocked. We would absolutely stay here again and would definitely recommend it! The SLS team was very easy to get in contact with when we did have questions. They made the check in and check out procedure a breeze.

Our experience was great! The apartment was clean, lighted and pleasant. The location is perfect! We were so close the some colleges, shopping center, the river, and the city center of course. Thank you for making our time in Oxford so wonderful!

Lovely house, with a view of the Thames from both balconies! Well-decorated and comfortable, plus it’s only a 15 minute walk from the train station. My group of four adults had a wonderful time.

Thames View is such a lovely home overlooking the river. Incredibly easy walk into town and close to lots of bus routes and the train station as well. Lots of space and great kitchen for cooking! Just a lovely place to stay in Oxford.

Spacious and charming house with a perfect location! We loved our stay.

This a lovely, comfortable house with great views over the rivers and meadows. It’s also in an excellent location – quiet, but within a short, easy walking distance of the town centre. We loved being there.

Feb 2022

Great home for family/ friends. Great location, next Westgate/ centre and close to walking path.

Dec 2021

We had a very enjoyable stay. It’s a great house, warm, comfortable and quiet, and we loved the cheerful and cosy living areas and the wonderful river views. Great to have 3 bathrooms. The agency responded quickly to a request for more teaspoons. The location is amazing- lovely river walks from the doorstep, and a short walk into town. Highly recommended.

Dec 2021

Great town house super close to Oxford city center. Everything as advertised. Nice setting close to water and city.

Jun 2021

Perfect location for shopping and ice skating (there is an ice skating ring about 10 minutes walk away). And we enjoyed walking around Oxford University area everyday:) Highly recommended.
