THIS ROOM IS NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL 18 SEPTEMBER 2014
I am offering 1 private room in my very clean and comfortable apartment. It is a lovely Double Bedroom. The apartment itself is a two bedroom apartment but I live in the other room so I can only offer the one room. The apartment is in a beautiful and peaceful area of South Croydon. The Room is very clean, cosy, with neutral decor, huge wardrobe and mirror. It is ideal for professionals, travellers, commuters from around the world or UK or anyone seeking a peaceful safe experience in London. Fresh linen, towels, breakfast, tea and coffee will be provided. There is free internet access.
Croydon is one of the greenest boroughs in London. There are many parks and woods for walks, cycling or just relaxing with nature. The Coombe Wood is over 5 hectares of woodland about 5 minutes walk away from the flat. It has a great variety of Rhododendrons and Azaleas, a lovely pond, terrace garden, stables and cafe. Lloyd Park is just 10 minutes walk away, it also has woodland, tennis courts, a free outdoor gymnasium for various cardio and muscle toning exercises. The park is home to many fairs and festivals in the spring and summer time. South Croydon is also a major shopping destination with two adjacent shopping centres both a very short bus ride from my apartment.
For evening leisure there is Croydon's recently zoned restaurant quarter - the South End area, along Brighton Road with all variety of restaurants you could want – Indian, Italian, Greek, Spanish, Turkish, Chinese / Thai. There are variety of pubs, clubs and cocktail bars too and very nice ones. They are all 10 mins walk away from my flat. This area actually links with the Central Croydon restaurant / Leisure area with wide variety of clubs and a cinema too.
South Croydon station is just 7 minutes walk away from my apartment, maybe less - depending on how fast you walk! London Bridge is 17 mins away on the fast train and so is London Victoria. There are two bus stops at the junction of the flat for East and Central Croydon if you fancy a spot of retail therapy.
For those travelling from abroad Gatwick airport is 15 minutes away by train.
A little about me - I'm a professional myself. I work in the City and travel to work on the train everyday. I love it in South Croydon because it provides me with a peaceful and beautiful living while I get quick and easy travel to Central London via the good transport connection in Croydon. It takes the stress out of living in London for me. However, I do like to take full advantage of the buzz of Central London with all the fun and interesting things it has to offer, I enjoy being able to return to my 'South Croydon retreat' after a lovely evening out.
I am happy to help you with any information you need to make your visit enjoyable. If you are interested then please let me have some information about who you are and what you plan to do.
All the best and enjoy London!

"Very clean flat and lovely landlady. It really feels like home!"
Bunmi was very nice and kind to us and her flat is perfect. I wish my own flat were like hers!! She keeps it very clean&tidy and this makes you really feel at home when you come back after a long day at work or sightseeing.
Croydon is a bit far away from London city but well connected and the flat is located in a quite residential area.
