    Property Description

    Luxury for Less - fully self contained studio with no shared spaces. Fabulous newly renovated Studio apartment, now available at introductory prices!
    Combining the perfect blend of Victorian elegance and London opulence our ‘Luxury for less’ Studio is true luxury living. Offering not just style and comfort, but convenience too! We are very well connected and a short train ride from East Croydon station takes you directly to London Victoria station, right in the heart of London.
    This studio is just one of several in splendid Victorian Mansion owned by us for many years and tastefully converted into separate apartments, each with different specifications for varying budgets and individual needs. Our guests include a mixture of short term holiday lets, slightly longer stay for career or academic studies and longer-term tenants who enjoy living here and working in London.

    The space

    A delightful self-contained studio apartment in a period residence. This recently refurbished apartment has been completely remodelled but manages to retain all of its period features and charm. From the high ceilings and generous Victorian windows to the original exposed brickwork all combined with concessions for modern living which make any length of stay a pleasure. 

    As with our other apartments great care has gone into choosing the interior fittings and we have made a special effort to ensure that everything you will need for you stay, from bedding to pots and pans to hairdryers and ironing board….are provided for your use. 

    This residence features a communal laundry room, with washing machines and tumble dryers, which although not free are heavily subsidized and you can wash a load from just £2. 

    This particular Studio features a separate kitchen and bathroom so it feels particularly spacious. As you can see in the photos there is the comfort of a leather sofa and the additional convenience of a table and chairs for dining. 

    The flat screen TV is 50’’ and the picture quality is excellent, it’s mounted on a special bracket so as you can see it from where ever you are in the room. 
    Free WiFi is included and the code is made available in the guests welcome book which you can find in the apartment, together with a host of other information which we consider you may find useful.


  • The following is information on how to get to the apartment from various Airports, it’s up to date and accurate so you can use it to plan your journey.  

    Instructions for travelling to the apartment from London's Heathrow Airport. 

    There are several ways to reach the apartment from London’s Heathrow Airport and of course it's up to you (and your budget) to decide.

    Private car hire/taxi is a great option and I can recommend an excellent car service which you can easily book online.  When you at the airport they will be waiting with a placard with your name on. 


    They will take you directly to the apartment and the drive takes around 50 minutes or more depending on the traffic. 
    Expect to pay around £55 for up to four people. Larger vehicles are available for those with lots of luggage or larger groups. For four persons with minimal luggage this works out at less than £15 each so is well worth considering particularly when you factor in the hassle of getting on and off trains with baggage and/or children.
    Another option is by underground from Heathrow. Take the Piccadilly Line from the terminal 1-2-3 and get off at ‘Gloucester Road’ underground station. This takes about 36 minutes. Change platform for the ‘Victoria Line’ board the train and get off at ‘London Victoria’. This takes about 6 minutes.  
    Victoria is a main line station and here you must leave the underground part of the station and go to the main overland part. You can board a fast (14minutes) overland train directly to East Croydon. Remember there is no underground train to East Croydon but a fast and regular overland service. 
    Check the board at the station for you next fastest train to East Croydon and take that train. When you arrive at East Croydon, exit the station at the FRONT entrance/exit that is using the ramp at the end of the platform not up the steps in the middle.

    Turn left out of the front and you will see a taxi rank, you can take a taxi from here if you wish, costs around £5 or make the 12-minute walk to the apartment. 
    The journey takes around 1hr 15mins and will cost around £12 each person. 

    There is also an option by bus. The X26 runs from Heathrow Airport terminal bus station and goes to East Croydon Station.  This apparently costs around £2 and the journey takes 1hr 40 minutes plus, depending on the traffic. Great value but a bit slow.  

    Instructions for travelling to the apartment from London's Gatwick Airport:

    Although you can travel by taxi from Gatwick airport (see link above) I recommend that you travel by train, it is fast, inexpensive and very convenient.

    When you arrive at Gatwick Airport follow the signs for the train station. If you are in a different terminal you may have to make a short hop using their shuttle. 
    Once at the station purchase a ticket for East Croydon Station and check the departure board for the next fastest train and the relative platform. 
    The journey normally takes around 20 minutes and most trains go directly to East Croydon or make very few stops. 

    Instructions for travelling to the apartment from London's Stanstead Airport:

    Once again please consider the taxi company I recommend; www.airporttaxis-uk.co.uk using this company a taxi from Stanstead airport is around £70 excellent value when you consider that the journey by train involves several changes. 

    If you do decide to travel by train this is what you need to do:

    When you arrive at Stanstead Airport follow the signs for Stansted Airport train station, purchase a ticket for East Croydon.  
    Take the train to Tottenham Hale Underground station, trains run every 10 minutes and it takes around 32minutes. 
    Change here for the underground to London Victoria takes 20min and runs every 5 minutes. 
    Once at London Victoria check the departure board for the next fastest train to East Croydon and proceed to the relative platform, takes 14 mins and they are every 5 minutes. Cost is around £25. 

    A cheaper way to travel is by taking the bus or express coach from Stanstead Airport directly to Victoria and taking the train from there. Coach is normally about £10 and the train from Victoria is around £6. 
    Instructions for travelling to the apartment from London's Luton Airport:

    Once again you can take the taxi but the train ride is relatively painless given that it is a direct route to East Croydon station and the trains are frequent.

    Once at Luton Airport find a train ticket vendor or machine and purchase your ticket for East Croydon. 
    Proceed outside to the bus station where you will find the shuttle bus which will take you directly to Luton Parkway rail station and normally takes just a few minutes. 
    At the station check to departure board for the next fastest train to East Croydon, normally platform four. 

    When you arrive at East Croydon, exit the station at the FRONT entrance/exit that is using the ramp at the end of the platform not up the steps in the middle.

    Turn left out of the front and you will see a taxi rank, you can take a taxi from here if you wish, costs around £5 or make the 12-minute walk to the apartment. 
    It's a direct train and normally takes around 1 hour 15 minutes. Cost is around £17. 

    Alternatively, you can take a coach to Victoria but there is not a lot of point to this other than if the trains aren't running or you feel a strong desire to sample London's famous traffic! :-)

      My partner and I absolutely loved our stay My partner and I absolutely loved our stay. The studio was very clean and warm and had everything you would need for a comfortable hoilday. The Kitchen is well equipped and included complimentary tea, coffee and a few basics such as oil. Big TV with lots of channels, comfortable bed and lots of space. The best way to central London is by train which is a 10-15min walk away with pubs, cafe and a convenient store along the way. The train ride is about 15min to Victoria station and London Bridge. There is also a supermarket (waitrose) 2min walk from the train station (turn right) which has hot chicken and cold salads if your not feeling up to cooking. For the international Pokémon Go hunters there are Mimes at the train Station! Would recommend to all

      Everything is just great there The location is great. direction to the listing is clear as well. Gary is a great host! He even prepared a SIM for us when we arrived. Gary came to our rescue very quickly when we were lock outside the listing in the middle of the night because we left the keys in the listing. Thanks Gary! Everything is just great there.

      Our stay was wonderful Our stay was wonderful. Gary was great to deal worth and even arranged for a car service from the airport. He always answered our questions immediately. If we needed something either he or his partner, Lain, were there for us. The apartment was just like the photos and had everything needed to get us started. The apartment is only about a 12 minute walk to the train station which gets you in to London Victoria Station in 15-20 minutes. There some good pubs in the area and a great Vietnamese restaurant also

      It was a pleasure to stay at his flat The room was very clean and beautiful, the description and photos are very accurate. The bed was comfortable, the TV was amazing that you have plenty of channels to choose from, you can connect your Netflix and YouTube to it too if you want. There was no disturbing noise from outside, though there is a main road in front of the flat where the bas stop is. Gary was very kind,friendly and always responsive. It was a pleasure to stay at his flat, and you cannot ask for a better host!

      Easy access to public transportation Gary's flat in Croydon was the beautiful, quiet oasis I was looking for! Easy access to public transportation & within walking distance to a neighborhood grocery store. The flat itself is absolutely lovely! Just like the pictures! And the bed was incredibly comfortable! I would definitely stay here again when I come back to England!

      Gary is a great person This is our first experience with Airbnb and it could not be better. Gary is a great person, helping us with great diligence and even he sent us the money that we forgot in the apartment demonstrating his enormous professionalism and honesty. The apartment is spectacular, modern, with a huge TV, induction cooker, and a 5 Stars bathroom. It is clean, neat, identical as seen in the photo and has everything you need for a good stay making us feel at home. It is also very close to a bus stop from which you can move to anywhere in London. The area is quiet and cozy and has a supermarket near open until very late in the evening. We are truly grateful for having stayed at this wonderful place and to have had so lucky to have a host like Gary. Thanks a lot for everything. Super recommended and we would definitely stay at this wonderful place again.

      The studio was very clean and tidy Gary was a very kind host. He picked us up from the station and on our day of departure brought us back there. The studio was very clean and tidy. There was even some basic food, like salt and tea in the kitchen. There was no noise in or around the house. Concerning the location there was a bus station just outside the house, so we could get to the train station easily. There were supermarkets just 5 minutes in walking distance. At the station we did not need to wait long for a train since there was basically a train leaving for London every 5 minutes and it did not take any longer than 20 minutes to Victoria Station. It was our first stay with Airbnb, but everything went well and we had no problems whatsoever. If we ever came back to London, we most likely would contact Gary again.
