Both Iain and I are very keen travelers and have experienced all sorts of levels of accommodation in other countries, with that in mind our goal here is to try and provide quality, self contained accommodation with a high level of privacy and independence.
Croydon town center is a fifteen minute walk or short bus hop away and the area is very well served by public transport.
The iconic Whitgift shopping center has 140 retailers under one roof, is open seven days a week and central Croydon has an abundance of restaurants and bars.
There are convenience stores and super-markets within a few minutes walk.
Croydon has the largest population of all the Boroughs in London, and with Croydon Town acting as the heart of the borough; it could almost be a city in itself.
The area has always been a leader in financial, business and cultural sectors and is considered to be very well balanced with great living and working opportunities mixed with a bustling town center and many green open areas. It also has a great alternative/arts scene, making living or staying in Croydon an increasingly attractive choice for anyone not wanting to pay higher London prices.
The Borough of Croydon formed in 1965 and the name derives from Saxon times, meaning “valley of the crocuses!” – Crocuses are a plant in the iris family, for those wondering!
As mentioned above, Croydon has always been a leader in financial and business sectors; this dates back to when the area boasted the city’s first and only airport of its time. The now defunct airport is a Grade II listed building and a tourist attraction.
Looking forward, Croydon has a large regeneration plan running. The plans aim to make the area London’s “third city” by 2020 and are pumping £3.5 billion into major “master plans” in East, West and Mid Croydon as well as Fairfield and Oldtown.
Croydon acts as a gateway from South London to Central London and has many major roads running through it, including Purely Way – great for commuters. The Borough has so many great opportunities of its own that you don’t have to see it only as a commuter choice for London (despite the fact it is), but also a great place to live and work.
The Brighton Mainline rail links Croydon with Sussex, Kent and Surrey
We were with four people (parents and two adult children from the Netherlands) and felt very much at ease in this practical/functional apartment. A good kitchen/diner, spacious bedrooms and a nice living with tv etc. We only had mailcontact with the owner, but he responded quick and friendly. The journey to London Bridge, Victoria or Blackfriars station took about three quarters of an hour (minimum) by bus and train, but hey, where else do you get such a luxurious apartment with your own garden?
Voor de Nederlanders: zeker een aanrader!
We stayed in this lovely South Croydon garden apartment for 10 days and absolutely loved it. It was perfect for our family of 4. Very clean, organized, and with even more space than pictured. It also had a dishwasher, clothes dryer, and shower with plenty of water-pressure... all which were an amazingly wonderful surprise for us.
We found the location very close to 2 different double-decker bus lines (403 and 412), both which came with great frequency, were quick rides, and dropped close to either the East or South Croydon Rail Stations into London. This property is in Zone 5 but the weekly unlimited travel-passes were perfect, convenient, and affordable. Express trains came regularly to East Croydon with routes to Victoria Station, London Bridge Station, and Clapham Junction. We barely ever waited more than a few minutes to board.
There were plenty of restaurants and carry-out options nearby (both right by the house and a TON near the station in East Croydon -- Wetherspoons became our family favorite as after a long day of touring, we could get 4 dinners, all with pints and sodas for 26 pounds!!). If you need a haircut, I highly recommend Rush on George in East Croydon. Lovely experience. There were also many grocery stores and shopping options. I would not hesitate to recommend this VRBO to anyone. We felt very safe and loved this home. It was airy and bright and a really delightful home-base for all sorts of adventures.
SINCERELY THANK YOU GARY.
Wir haben im Juli 2016 eine wunderschöne Zeit in dieser Ferienwohnung mit 2 kleinen Kindern genossen. Die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet, was das Herz begehrt. Besonders erwähnenswert ist die Klima-Anlage, welche uns trotz heißer Tag immer geholfen hat, einen kühlen Kopf zu bewahren.
Gary war immer erreichbar und konnte uns alle Fragen beantworten (z.b. auch Fragen nach dem nächsten Spielpatz).
Tipps zur Erreichbarkeit:
Von Gatwick mit Southern oder Thameslink bis East Croydon. Von da entweder mit Taxi weiter, kostet ca. 10Pfund. Oder aber bis zur GeorgeStreet laufen und dort die Busse 403 nach Warlingham oder 412 nach Purley nehmen.
Lebensmittel kann man fußläufig nicht einkaufen. Wir haben immer den 403-Bus nach West Croydon genommen und sind in der Swan-and-Sugar-Loaf ausgestiegen (2 Stationen ab der Unterkunft). Dort ist ein Tesco Express, welcher auch Sonntags geöffnet hat.
Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!
Wir waren zu dritt in dieser wirklich komfortablen Unterkunft. Alles war wie beschrieben. Die Bushaltestelle lag um die Ecke. Besonderes Highlight die wirklich gut ausgestattete Küche und das herrliche Doppelbett. Abends konnten wir dann noch gemütlich bei Bier und Wein im Garten sitzen. Was für ein Luxus! Die Wohnung war sehr gepflegt und sauber. Der Vermieter gut erreichbar. Ich kann diese Wohnung nur empfehlen. Das Haus ist ein originales englisches Wohnhaus und der Ort Croyden sehr urig. Ein Einkaufszentrum ist in Westcroyden an der Bahnstation zu finden.
Wir waren vom 4.- 10. Mai zu Gast in Garys Wohnung. Da wir vom Wetter verwöhnt wurden, konnten wir den kleinen aber wunderschönen Garten wirklich genießen. Wir waren zu dritt und hatten somit ausreichend Platz in dem Apartment. Der Kontakt mit Gary war wirklich sehr hilfreich. Er meldete sich immer sofort zurück und war uns in jeglicher Hinsicht behilflich. Die Wohnung liegt nahe einer Bahnstation , die man zu Fuß in ca. 10 Minuten bequem erreichen kann. Man fährt dann ca. 20 Minuten bis zur Victoria Station. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es in der Nähe nur sehr begrenzt. Wir haben uns immer vor der Rückfahrt in London mit einigen Dingen versorgt , das war eigentlich in Ordnung. Alles in allem waren wir sehr zufrieden und würden jederzeit wieder bei Gary buchen.
