Property Reviews 
Quiet and Cozy
Susan K. from York, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2014
We had a fabulous time in Oxford & thoroughly loved the Pride & Joy cottage. If possible, we'd love to come back next year. I got to visit the Mystery Loves Company shop but didn't get to the museum. We also enjoyed the Pope Tavern & Scottish Highland Creamery... on more than one occasion! Neighbors were warm & friendly. We were happy to meet so many other dog lovers. The cottage was charming & impeccably clean. We needed customer service once & they responded quickly & efficiently. A PERFECT vacation. As far as recommending it to others... I'm not sure because I want to keep this my little secret :-) I'm kidding. I'd recommend this trip to anyone!

good choice for little kids
A guest from Springfield, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014
House was clean, well-appointed, and in a very quiet little neighborhood. Great choice for families with small children, as the folks that own this house have a few - several baby gates available, as well as lots of child-friendly plates/cups/silverware, booster seat, etc. Bunk beds have a nice high rail, and I felt comfortable with my 3 and 5 year olds sleeping up there. The TV turned right on to Disney Junior, and my kids had a blast taking a ride around the block in the wagon that was in the yard. Recommend the owners put black-out curtains in the bedroom with the bunk beds though!

Stayed for 6 days in July, 2014
We had a great time in Oxford over the 4th of July weekend. The accommodations were very nice and comfortable and the weather cooperated. We hope to return next year. Our only recommendation on the house in that the WiFi was a bit spotty, but other then that, it was great!

Great place to get away...
A guest from Hackettstown, NJ recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2014
This cottage in the village of Oxford has been a favorite place for us to get away in the early spring for years. This house is our choice! Great little town on the Tred Avon River to walk the dog, outstanding seafood restaurants and best of all ESVR is great to deal with!

Stay at Pride and Joy Cottage
Gene T. from Fairmont, WV recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in December, 2013
Cottage was wonderful and very well accommodated, although there is only one television. I would suggest that the owners add at least one more to a bed room. Oxford is a very tiny town and with just a convenience store and a few pubs but it is surrounded by water in three directions. My only negatives about the stay were twofold: we had intended to do some Christmas cooking baking and there was no electric mixer. We would have brought our own but the management company suggested one was available--it wasn't. In regards to check out, I tried to leave the key in the lockbox but the code I was given was only valid for one day and no one answered the phone at the management company. These were small compared to the quality of the house. We would definitely stay there again.

We had a wonderful weekend in Oxford! The house was in immaculate condition, and it was so charming and very well-appointed. We loved that we could walk across the street to the Oxford Inn for dinner and drinks. We enjoyed every minute of our time at Pride and Joy Cottage. Thank you!

Decorator's Dream Cottage
Sharon S. from Mahwah, NJ recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013
We were delighted with the ambience of the cottage. Every room was immaculate and well appointed, cheerfully and seemingly professionally decorated with colorful walls, comfortable furniture, good lighting, and well appointed kitchen and bathrooms. We especially enjoyed discovering all the crab decorations - on the walls, the dishes in the kitchen, and even on one of the shower curtains. We were 4 people (sisters) and the bedrooms were comfortable, even the room with the bunk beds. We loved the porch and sat out there one night enjoying a thunderstorm from the cozy rocking chairs. The kitchen was well stocked and immaculate. We enjoyed the living room, the dining room and the kitchen for meals and chatting. The location was right in town and we rode our rented bikes everywhere. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who appreciates cozy ambience, professional decorating, and easy access to everything in Oxford. The Eastern Shore Rental staff was accommodating and professional. Oxford is a quaint historical town worth visiting.

Cute Intown Cottage
Roberta W. from Laytonsville, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our getaway to Oxford! Our cottage was charming, everything we needed. We even overcame the Wifi not working for the weekend, thank goodness for hotspots on our phones. The house has lovely decor, location is perfect for walking and really comfy beds. Two suggestions: bathtubs are slippery, need safety strips and the one TV is really small, maybe an upgrade is in order. Thinking about coming back in the Fall!

Quick Weekend Away
A guest from Washington, DC recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013
The house is quite nice - spacious with a cute porch and yard, and comfortable furnishings. The location is great, very close to the water on Tred Avon and walking distance to the little market and Pope's Tavern. A prior renter mentioned the abundance of personal items in the home, including pictures. While there are such items, and an open owner's closet, we were left more with the feeling that someone opened their home to you, rather than a cold, never lived in rental. We did not think that the personal items were overbearing. I would definitely rent the home again.

Lovely home and location
A guest from Cranford, NJ recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in November, 2012
We had a lovely holiday at Pride and Joy cottage. We were very happy with the house and location. We had a bit of a hiccup upon check in where the management company office was not open and we were wondering how we would pick up our keys, but it was resolved quickly so was not an issue overall. Also, the TV has a bit of a trick to get it to have sound which we figured out fairly late in the week, so a specific note about that would have been helpful. Having a place where young children and dogs are welcome was perfect for us and we would definitely visit again.

Charming Cottage in a Charming Town
A guest from Norwalk, CT recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
The cottage was lovely, clean and comfortable, and the town of Oxford was so peaceful. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was great to be able to bring my dog along as well. Loved the front porch and proximity to town. One suggestion-The owners could perhaps remove more of their own personal items from the closets (strollers, child gates, etc)In addition, after shopping, there was no place to put provisions since the pantry cabinet was clearly marked "owners pantry" and was full of owner's things. So for the week the counters were cluttered with what I had bought. I have rented many homes but this was the 1st time there were so many personal items including photos of the owner's family- on the top of bureaues, etc., again limiting space. Between the items in the closets and kitchen as well as all the photos,I sort of felt I was being intrusive,rather than actually living in a "summer rental".

Great stay in a great place!
A guest from Baltimore, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012
Everything was above average and we cooked some wonderful meals! It would have been helpful to have access to spices and such as we do enjoy cooking. Rental staff were very helpful in clarifying how to use the TV and DVD player- need good written instructions! I also recommended that the screened porch could use a thorough cleaning to make it more enjoyable to use! The house and location were terrific!

Please tell the office that Tidewater Hotel does not keep keys after hours. We were told they did and wasted time after a 12 hour drive. Finally reached after hours number who was stumped too! He called back promptly that house was open. Not a good beginning!

Pride and Joy Cottage in Oxford
A guest from Lutherville, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2011
A big thumbs-up to the property manager on this one. We arrived at our rental on the evening before Thanksgiving, only to discover (at about 11:30 PM) that there was no hot water. The property manager was not able to fix the problem (no surprise, given the timing) but by 9:00 AM on Thanksgiving morning they had set us up with a different (nicer!) rental house in Oxford. So, while the 4-star rating reflects the lack of hot water in our original rental, the way Eastern Shore handled the situation gets five stars, plus.P.S. As a bonus, they found and mailed to us the two stuffed animals my five-year-old son managed to leave in the original rental.

Thanks for the kind notes. The photo you sent us of your son with those stuffed animals is very cute and we still have it displayed on our cork board here at the office. We hope to see you and your family back in the future.

Beautiful Home in quaint town
Beth M. from Burlington, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010
We spent a week at the cottage, what a beautiful home. The area is very quiet, nothing much to do in the local town, there was no public beach or swimming in the town which meant day trips each day to find things to do but it was very relaxing and the neighbors are all very friendly. As there were six of us we prepared a number of meals at the house, the appliances were top notch with the exception of the ice maker not working in the fridge. The kitchen was pretty well equipped but lacked a number of items, eg. there was no muffin pan, no martini shaker, a must for our family. If I was to stay in Oxford again I would want to rent a house with a pool, the weather was very hot and sticky and a dip would have made all the difference.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Eastern Shore Vacation Rentals LLC
Please note that the town of Oxford does have a small waterfront beach area called The Strand which is open for public swimming. There can be jellyfish in the water during certain times of the year which could hinder swimming. There is also public access to the Oxford Beach off of South Morris Street. Owner recently added both a martini shaker and muffin pan to their kitchen! The ice maker was recently replaced. Thanks for the feedback!
