Pool closed and no dockhands.

Marina Response:
Thanks for the note, John. We're working with a few pool specialists to get the pool open ASAP, we'd be happy to host your next visit so you can try it out! Since we are a smaller marina, our service and office staff work together in place of dockhands to assist in arrivals and departures, and other needs on the docks. Thank you for choosing DiMillo's in Oxford for this stay; we hope to see you again in the future!

Starting with the positive. The staff were helpful and responsive. A few issue: 1. When asking about details, the staff pointed us to the confirmation email. There is a link to amenities, but it leads to a "404 page not found." If you arrive after the staff has departed, you'd be hard pressed to get the restrooms code. 2. No WiFi. 3. Pool was closed on a very hot 4th of July weekend.

Marina Response:
We appreciate your feedback and certainly take it in to account as we grow. Thanks for staying with us!

DiMillo's Oxford was a great boating experience with an ample dock for our Catalina 42, a great pool, and clean, modern bath facilities. Use of the bicycles made exploring Oxford quite enjoyable.

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and there was nobody available (by phone or VHF) to direct us to slip D-33 and the slip was not marked. Even after we pulled in to a vacant slip (not D-33), we still couldn’t find it. Texting a map of the marina would have been a big help in the absence of anyone being available to assist.

Marina Response:
Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced upon your arrival. Ensuring our guests have a smooth and enjoyable experience is our top priority, and we're sorry we fell short in this instance. We're currently working with Dockwa to streamline our pre-arrival communications. We appreciate your patience and we hope to provide a smoother experience on your next visit.

Small independent Marina. Very quiet, close walk to Oxford ice cream, park, convenience market and restaurant. We really liked the quiet setting.

Our 2 night stay turned out good. But we arrived on a Sunday afternoon. There was no staff on site to assist and the slip we were instructed to dock in via an off-site phone call was already occupied. Fortunately we found an alternative and with the help of 3 local boat owners, we're able to dock and hook up to services. An appreciated apology came the next morning from marina management. This working boat yard is not quite ready for transient traffic but is trying.

Marina Response:
Thank you for sharing your experience. We're glad to hear that your stay turned out well despite the initial challenges. We apologize for the inconvenience you faced upon arrival and appreciate your understanding and patience. We're continuously working to improve our services and facilities for our transient guests. Your feedback is invaluable in helping us enhance our offerings. We hope to welcome you back soon and provide a smoother experience.

No information on bathroom/ shower facility location or combination. Reservation made with our loa and beam on Dockwa but we were shoehorned into a slip shorter a just wide enough to cautiously ease in (this in high wind). No office personnel available when we arrived (on a Saturday at 1530.

Marina Response:
Thank you for your note. I’m sorry to hear that we didn’t meet your expectations on this visit. We are always looking for ways to improve and take guest feedback into consideration in the quest to provide the best experience. We hope to have the opportunity to host your next stay in the area.

Pete and his team helped us dock and made our stay welcoming. The marina is a working boatyard so if you need any parts or service Sam can fix you up. The place is very historic and charming. It is not a resort marina but the facilities are clean and very nice. Oxford couldn’t be more inviting. Our favorite stop on the Great Loop so far!

Great communication and directions, we arrived after hours and had no problems finding our slip or difficulty using any of the amenities. We also liked the location because many of the places we wanted to go were walkable or easy to get to by bicycle.

Great marina that is very quiet and laid Back. The manger is a SUPER nice gentleman that met us at the dock upon arrival. Gave us his personal cell number incase we needed anything after hrs. Also supplied us with a few bags of ice free of charge. The pool was great, showers/heads very clean, a short walk or bike trip to town (marina had very nice bikes to use). Overall a great place, they really welcomed us in and made us feel right at home. Oxford is a wonderful little town, we will definitely be back for sure!!

Marina Response:
Wow! Thank you for the wonderful review. We are lucky to have Pete here to help all of our guests. We're looking forward to hosting your next visit soon.

Location Fine Info about the marina maps, bathroom codes etc great and nice to have in advance and gave us hope things were organized. IF you arrive on a Sunday - make sure you get a slip assignment before you arrive as there is no one at the marina to tell you where to dock. Wasted most of an hour trying to find someone via phone and VHF while circling outside the marina. Was suggested I had 50 alternative marinas if the lack of response on a Sunday was really an Issue by an employee on site at the office who did not respond to the VHF or phone we found once we tied up. T- Mobile Cell coverage ok No wifi Pump out a bit less than 5 ft at Low Tide ( I measured it) - they will bring a tank out to your boat if need be.

Great marina in the heart of Oxford - Pete and the team were super helpful - not just at the marina but also with local knowledge on waterways that might be too shallow for our draft. Clean restrooms, bikes for getting around and absolute silence overnight. Will definitely be coming back again.

The folks at DiMillo's Oxford are great. We were able to get two slips side by side which was very convenient. The location is ideal for exploring the town. The pool and heads were clean, and while the docks are a bit rustic, we were very comfortable and will return again soon.

This place has a lot of potential. We were wary about booking because we did not see any reviews. It looks like DeMillo took over a few weeks ago (from Hinckley) and has big plans to modernize. The location is excellent, in the heart of Oxford. The manager is super-helpful and personable. If you want something quiet and rustic, this place is good as is. We stayed one night this past weekend and only saw one other transient, and maybe 1-2 seasonal people. DeMillo is correct that a modernization is needed. The bathrooms and pool are good. The floating docks and power supplies need updating. If you want modern and busy, this is not the right place but if you want tranquil and basic, this is good as is and will only get better in the next couple of years.
