The things people say count for a lot – when we are praised, we have to admit it feels good, and we try to put things right when people tell us that we need to improve. Here are some comments which we have received from students, parents and those at our partner colleges.
Outstanding facilitiesLiving at Sharon’s house has been great: outstanding facilities, accommodation, cleanliness, proximity to uni and city centre and the environment in general. Sharon has thought of everything to make it as comfortable as possible for me, and that is what makes this place so great to stay at!
Жить в доме Шэрон - одно удовольствие! Благоустроенный особняк, очень удобно, уютно, чисто, близко к университетам и центру города. Студенты окружены заботой и уходом. Шэрон позаботилась обо всем, чтобы сделать моё проживание максимально комфортным и приятным.
A professional teamAt the beginning of my journey in England, I was a bit scared and unassertive, because my English was not that good and being away from my parents in such a young age was not easy to me at all. However, the lovely, elegant and vivacious lady, Sharon, treat me as not only the tenant, but also a part of her family as she taught me the British culture and show family love to me. Furthermore, she cared about my well-being and gave me a lot of supports when I had to deal with difficulties in college life. She made everting felt like home and I really did changed positively under her affection.
Her team is professional and spectacular as they have been in the accommodation industry for a long time, which implies that the team has got many experiences. The choices of those flats are various, the layout of rooms is reasonable, and furniture is neat. Moreover, meals provided are made with good quality of food materials and rooms are cleaned in a fixed period. I believe that the team is one of the best people could find in the town.
这是我的亲身经历，我愿意在这里给大家分享: 我是一个来自中国广州的留学生。当我第一次到英国牛津留学的时候，大概是4年前吧，我很有幸得和Sharon的家庭一起居住并生活，直到我离开牛津的那一天。 在我刚到英国的时候，我有一点不自信并且有一点害怕，因为年龄还小，很舍不得离开自己的家，再加上当时自己的英语也不太优秀，我害怕自己会有语言障碍，难以和他人沟通。但是，在和Sharon，这位友好，优雅和热情的女士，居住了一段时间后，我发现她不仅仅把我看作是一个租客这么简单，而且还把我当作是她自己家庭的一部分，去照顾我和关心我，并在我遇到困难的时候帮助我，支持我。她对我所做的一切让我感觉到自己之前的顾虑是多余的，并且让我对牛津这个城市不再陌生。现在再回忆起这段宝贵的经历，我发现自己真的在她的影响下，性格变好了许多。 Sharon和她的团队在住宿这个产业已经驻足多年，所以她们非常有经验，同时也很专业。她们在牛津提供很多不同的房子，这也意味着她们能提供多种多样的环境条件和住宿条件。每个房子里面的房间布局都很清晰，合理，并且家具都很新，价格也很合理。想租房子的同学们，大可以考虑她们所提供的的房子。虽然我的经历有点特殊，因为我当时是和她们一起住，这意味着我住在她自己的房子里，但是她出租的这些房子我都去参观过，并且我个人很了解Sharon的为人（真的非常友善），所以我在这里向你们推荐她们的团队和房子，因为她们是在牛津城里最好之一。 谢谢你们愿意花时间读完这篇文章，希望我能帮助到你们消除一些潜在的顾虑。 陈钧泰
Approved by Royalty!The flat we rented from Sharon was my sixth student accommodation rental and by far the easiest and least stressful. Not having to organise internet and television is fantastic, as is the weekly cleaning service, which means that they don't end up living in squalor (!) and I knew beds and towels were being changed regularly! It's easy to get hold of Sharon and her team and everything was straightforward to organise. I am hoping that any future students will end up in Oxford so that I can use Sharon's services again!
All is good!Amanda is perfectly happy in her house and I am totally confident and comfortable with her being there. All is good (in fact, her house is really wonderful!!) Thanks!
Reassuring & supportiveSince I first knew Sharon in 2005, I have been heartened by her realistic approach to our students. She is aware they can be homesick and may be isolated so encourages them to engage with their new surroundings and fellow house mates. Students find her approachable and supportive as she offers constructive advice. Parents who contact her are reassured by this and many will call me to ensure rooms are available for their student children for subsequent terms.
Top qualityWe have used the accommodation provided by Sharon for 10 years. This has ranged from host families to managed residential accommodation and she provides us with top quality accommodation, food and service. No problem is too small for her and problems are all resolved very quickly. We look forward to working with Sharon for many years to come.
Care, concern & respectIf I were asked to judge a good host then Sharon is the criterion. What she offers is a positive term of reference that I use when meeting other hosts. Her room rents are not the cheapest in Oxford, but factoring in facilities and support, I have no hesitation in recommending her to student parents. Sharon’s professionalism, care, concern and respect for students and their welfare is invaluable.
Amazing accommodationLuxury houses with the added benefit of being fully compliant with current council regulations. Every property is managed and has a current HMO license, regularly inspected to ensure each house is maintained to the highest standard. Amazing accommodation in great locations close to the city.
Really happy tenantsI have worked alongside Sharon for many years now (since 2008) and her properties have always been kept to a really high standard and quality throughout. Tenants are always really happy in her properties and often return to stay again.
Cheerful & conscientiousIt has been a delight to work with Sharon – she is always cheerful, conscientious and extremely concerned about the welfare of our students. She and her family have been wonderful hosts to several of our students, and we are very grateful to her.
Immaculately cleanWhen we recommend Sharon to one of our students I know they are going to get well looked after, with high quality accommodation. Sharon’s properties are unique – furnished to a very high standard, well maintained and immaculately clean. Her team are all focused on taking care of the student – I am confident our students will feel at home, feel safe and will love their room!
Bright and cheeryBright and cheery accomodation of a superior quality, perfect for my international students to live in as a home from home. Service provided by Sharon and her team is exemplary, with any issues resolved quickly and any questions responded to promptly. I would happily live in one of these residences myself!
