What ex-students in our properties say about us            

 


“15 Mayfield Road has been a place I have been fortunate enough to call home for four years, while studying at the University of Bath. The house is very spacious, a luxury for most students coming from University campus accommodation. The house is situated in a great location, close to many shops and takeaways on Moorland Road. It is within walking distance to the town and very close to the bus stops that serve the University. Alexander and Sharron, treat the house as their own and ensure that all the appliances are updated and are of good quality. Whenever there is a problem, they are easy to contact and usually resolve the problem swiftly, which is a benefit of living in one of their houses. Both Alexander and Sharron are very friendly and approachable. I certainly will miss the many great conversations I have had with them on a variety of interesting topics. Note, both are very knowledgeable and you can learn a thing or two from them and that isn’t included in the rent, a bonus if I say so myself. Not many students can say that they have known their landlords on a personal level. I will certainly miss them and 15 next year”.

“I really enjoyed my two years at 13 Hungerford Road! The house is a really nice size for three people and there's plenty of storage space. The heating is good and warm during colder months and the house is generally nice and cozy. There are also less students around than in Oldfield Park so it's usually very quiet. The landlord and landlady are fantastic and friendly - any issues were fixed very quickly and they always informed us if they were out of Bath for any period”.


Joshua Tenn, 13 Hungerford Road. 2017-2019

“Thank you for the wonderful time at 13, I greatly enjoyed my time there. I can quite easily say that it is a very conveniently located house, with great transport links (providing First bus is nice) and close convenience stores. It also has a good kitchen (great gas hob), large rooms and great furniture, and it really felt comfortable and homely”.


Michael Collis, 13 Hungerford Road.2017-2019

“Finally, I just wanted to thank you for your helpfulness and your kindness during these last two years - this was the first house that I rented, and I definitely will remember 13 Hungerford Road fondly”.

“I have been renting from Alexander and Sharron since my second year of University (4 years ago) and with good reason; initially in Combe Down and later in Woodland Grove, the properties are perfectly located to get to Uni without having to rely on the bus service but having access to it if needed. This, coupled with the high quality of the houses themselves and straightforward and human approach to letting offered by Alexander and Sharron from initial viewings through to maintenance and emergencies, I do not think I could have had a better student rental experience and that is a major part of why I stayed with them for so long. I would recommend renting with them to anyone!”

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at 47 North Road. The house is well-furnished and excellently located to commute to the university by bus, bike, or foot. What few problems arose during my tenancy were dealt with very quickly by the landlords. All in all, I would absolutely recommend renting from Alexander and Sharron, and would gladly do so again myself”.


Linus Head, 47 North Road, Combe Down. 2018-2019

"It has been a great pleasure to stay in 51 North Road during my second year, while studying at Bath. The university is only a 15 minute cycle ride away, on flat terrain. Combe Down is a nice area and the house is robust and well equipped. Alexander and Sharron are kind, competent and understanding landlords who made our stay trouble-free. Any quandaries  during our tenancy were swiftly addressed proficiently . We will all be looking to rent with these landlords again."

"I really enjoyed my stay at 13 Hungerford Road. The house is really comfortable & cozy. Alexander has always been very happy to help us, giving us plenty of notice when he will be visiting; & when he goes abroad he always reminds us of the contacts we can speak to in his absence".

"We all had a great year in 13 Hungerford Road. The house is well furnished and everything works perfectly. Any issues we had were sorted out very quickly by the landlord".

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at 26 Alpine Gardens. It is a great place to live and in a very convenient location. It is well furnished and looked after by the Landlords. In the rare event of a problem, the Landlords were always on hand to get the problem resolved quickly and without stress. I can highly recommend 26 Alpine Gardens as a place to live".

George Barnes. 26 Alpine Gardens. 05/07/2017

" Living at 24 has been an absolute joy, a great place to live in with all the amenities you could ask for. The Landlords have been very responsive, helpful and understanding in relation to my requests".

"Staying at North Road was a real home that allowed us easily to get to uni without queuing for buses! The space, local co-op and large park made our lives so much easlier; as well as being the envy of our friends for having convenient parking & a great kitchen. We wouldn't want to live anywhere else".

"Thank you for the past two years at 49 North Road; you have made my first time renting a house a very easy & pleasant experience. It has been incredibly convenient for Uni & Combe Down is a wonderful place to live. Alexander has always been very accommodating, easy to talk to and has always sorted out any problems quickly; so thank you for this".

"It was an absolute pleasure to live at 26 Alpine Gardens; having a landlord who clearly takes a lot of pride in providing quality student housing is very refreshing. For the final years, the house was perfect, we had three large rooms & Alexander was very happy for us to bring our own double beds. When we arrived, the house was spotless, the furniture was all absolutely fit for purpose (two really comfy sofas) & the appliances in the kitchen were all modern. We didn't really have any problems throughout the year but whenever we contacted Alexander, there was always a swift response.

At the end of our tenancy, we had no problems with deposits being returned with the charges for damage that we had caused being very fair (I would say lenient in fact). Overall I would recommend Alexander & Sharron as landlords to anyone & will be telling my brother to get in contact with them when he gets back from placement".

"I found 47 North Road to be a spacious, comfortable and well-furnished house, set in a pleasant location, making it the perfect place to study and relax. It is a short walk or cycle from Bath university, a quick bus ride from the city centre and there is plenty of car parking space outside. I lived at 47 for two years during my undergraduate degree and after a year away I decided to return for another two years when I started working in Bath, as I enjoyed living there so much. Alexander and Sharron are the perfect landlords and are always there to help if needed."

"I spent two comfortable years at 15 Mayfield Road, with very little to worry about. The few issues that did arise were dealt with quickly and without hassle. Alexander and his wife are very friendly and personable, understanding also that students will likely be living away from home for the first time and so offering helpful advice for what should be done around the house. We were given due warning any time Alexander wished to visit the house. Our full deposit was returned promptly".

Christopher Wade. 15 Mayfield Road. 15/07/2015

"I found the landlord very helpful in everything concerning the house, such as fixtures. I was allowed to leave our boxes for summer, which helped to save on storage. The house was of excellent quality all the way through. We even had a hoover already given to us. Never I encountered any problem with the landlord. Alexander was also very helpful when it came to giving references."

"Great spacious house with newly fitted kitchen and bathroom, three good size bedrooms and lounge/social area. I lived in the house for two years whilst I was studying at Bath Spa University and if there were any problems, the Landlord sorted them out very quickly with minimum fuss but maximum efficiency. The landlord is really friendly and helpful, I would definitely recommend no.13 as it is a good student house."

Jessica Shoemack. Hungerford Road. 28/09/2013

"The house is in an excellent location for students at the University and a short bus journey from the city centre. The landlord was excellent. For example, when there was a problem with the boiler, the landlord sorted it out immediately. It was great to know that if anything did go wrong, the problem would have been resolved quickly. We made great use of the bike shed, the kitchen was large enough for 3 people and the bedrooms were spacious with plenty of room for storage. I would definitely recommend the house to others."

"I stayed at 51 North Road as a student for the last 3 years of my degree and found it to be the ideal location to base myself during my degree. The house itself is well equipped for students wanting a fully furnished setup and has fantastic facilities to securely store bicycles. The house's location surely couldn't be improved for students with a desire to live in a location near the university (within walking distance and a 5 to 8min cycle) but also live in an area with the feel of a village lifestyle and the potential to immediately enter the stunning countryside surrounding Bath to escape the pressures of your degree. In addition to this there is a Sainsbury's just down the road and a Co-op very close by. Probably best of all, the house is situated opposite a massive village green which is great for leisure activities with flatmates.

Provided you take care of the property, you can expect to have a friendly and non-intrusive relationship with the landlord. Since he is interested in cycling he was very helpful in showing me some of the nicest places to cycle locally. Any problems that were addressed to the landlord throughout my tenancy were dealt with promptly or permission to go ahead with repairs granted without issue."

Nicholas Tawn. North Road. 27/09/2013

"Absolutely fantastic landlords. Approachable, easily contactable, friendly and genuine couple. You won't go wrong in one of their houses."
