Location description from owner
The England region
South East England is a very lively corner of England and contains London, the capital city of the United Kingdom. London is a world class city, is massive, is diverse, is extremely lively and has something for tourists whatever their interests. London has a tremendous number of historical sites which include the Greenwich Maritime Village, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, The Tower of London, and Westminster Abbey, to name just a few. For a modern attraction there is the London Eye. This is two rail stops from Croydon East railway station (change at Clapham Junction for Waterloo East).For music and theatre goers there is Covent Garden in London's West End which teems with life at night. The West End has innumerable restaurants serving cuisines from many countries.. China Town, near Leicester Square, is just around the corner.For quiet interludes, South East England has some very pretty countryside; most notably in Surrey, Kent and Sussex.. These counties are extremely well served by East Croydon rail station. For fishing, canoeing or sailing there is nearby South Norwood Lake and Grounds - a large oasis of tranquility for those who wish to "get away from it all".

- Very Good
The stay was great. Terri and Anita were the best hosts that a person could ask for. They made the accommodations great. The location was stellar as well. About a 6 minute walk to the overhead train which takes you directly to central London. The full working kitchen helped to save us money versus eating out. Thanks Terri and Anita. We hope to return in a couple of years to see everything we missed this time :)
“Lovely flat, nice landlords”
On seeing this place from the outside, your impressions aren't great - a flat over a closed shop with whitewashed windows. But step inside and it's a whole different story! Lovely place. Great decor, awesome kitchen with all mod cons, flat-screen TV with cable, amazing bathroom, and, to top it all off, a nice roof terrace, ideal for a few friends and a bottle of wine. Very nice and accommodating landlords, free parking outside, a couple of decent takeaway food shops 5 minutes' walk away, and the bus into Croydon stops right over the road (this bus stops at East Croydon Station - a 5-minute ride - which will take you anywhere you might want to go). Overall, highly recommended. We'll be staying there next time we're in town. :)
This is a balanced, honest and accurate review of our property. We always strive to please our customers and we believe we have achieved this with the standard of the apartment's decor and its facilities. We are very welcoming and always available to help guests during their stay should they call on us.
