Nice clean basic apartment. We were welcomed by John who was very helpful. The location was ideal as we were visiting Purley. My only gripe is the shower wasn't working properly.
Recommended. Andrea's place was a really convenient location for us (a family with two children) having flown into London Gatwick. This was a nice, spacious and well maintained place. It was also really close to play ground and walking distance to shops. Andrea's friend who gave us the key was very friendly and flexible.
MY ONLY CAVEAT: Don't put the address into (website hidden) maps - it can't find 'Court", instead it directs you to a road which is in the opposite direction past a Tesco's down Brighton Road.
The apartment was comfortable and accurate to the description given.
We loved our stay at Andrea's flat in Purley. This was our first experience using AIRBNB and since we have been back, it is one of the first great things we tell our friends and family about.
After the first couple of days getting used to the transit system, the flat provided an accessible jumping point for our travels - spending time in London (using the transit system) and along the Southern coast (using rental cars).
We really could not have had a better time.
As for the apartment, it is exactly as written. The only suggestion I have would be to supply wifi, as it has become an essential planning and communication tool. We ended up using several wifi cafes and restaurants which were no more than 10 minutes walking distance.
We was spent lovely time in London, great location, easy access to central London. Nice area and very quiet:) We will come back for sure. Thank U so much
very nice place to stay in london. This is our second time and we really enjoy it! thank you very much Andrea we are looking forward to stay at your place again!
We really enjoyed our stay. Lovely and comfortable apartment, very convenient to London
A lovely flat and a great location! Well-kept, plenty of room. We also liked that the flat is the same price regardless of number staying there (makes more sense to me, anyway). We'd definitely stay there again!
We had a great stay in that flat! everything was very nice! we would love to stay there again when we will be back in London!
We had a very pleasant stay in Purley. Although we never met our hosts, they made sure we could find the flat, had a neighbor call round to check that we were OK, and answered all questions very promptly. The flat was scrupulously clean and very comfortable. As we had a 4-year-old boy the bunk bed was great, not to mention the collection of childrens' books, games and DVDs. The kitchen lacked for nothing (except perhaps a cheese grater) and the Miele appliances were a quiet, efficient treat. The heating also functioned perfectly. Internet access was fast and reliable.
The location is handy for trains and buses; as well as the obvious routes north into London or south to Brighton, Purley is a good base for walks in the Surrey countryside around e.g. Epsom. It's also a good spot for runners, as the large green areas on the old Croydon Airport are only five minutes' jog away; there is a parkrun every Saturday morning. There's a public swimming pool between the flat and Purley station.
The local supermarket (Tesco) is very large but far enough away to make it worth planning the day's shopping in advance. Up on the Purley Way there is Costco and all the big electrical and furniture stores. Try the Surrey Street market in Croydon for more personal shopping.
All in all, a great place to stay.
Andrea was an enjoyable person. We had some nice converstation at breakfast and she is always welcome to come back.
