Interaction with guests
I like to exchange emails or speak on the phone to my guests before and once they've booked to make sure they'll really enjoy their stay with us. The flat is our holiday home and we want you to love it like we do. I live in Oxford with my young family but have a lovely lady called Helen who helps me with the cleaning and changeovers and who is the local emergency contact. I post instructions and keys out to clients and am always happy to answer any queries you may have. I have a comprehensive visitors guide in the flat but am happy to give you advice on local attractions and days out etc.
