Bromley Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4).
Quick and easy travel to London without the expense and congestion of a central location! Our home away from home is a clean, roomy and comfortable two-bedroom flat with separate living and dining areas, a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, and free high speed wireless internet. There is a new flat screen HD TV that receives over 100 channels, and a 'multi-region' DVD player that will play your DVDs, no matter where they are from. Our DVD collection includes many movies with an English theme.
We are located in a quiet SE London suburb, facing a lovely park and surrounded by Victorian houses. An easy three minute walk leads to the rail station, where frequent trains take you to Victoria Station in central London in just 18 minutes. From Victoria there are extensive Underground links to virtually anywhere in the city. An inexpensive “day travelcard” pays for the round trip train ride to London and also allows unlimited travel on the Underground and on all buses.
A short walk from the flat brings you to grocery stores, restaurants, and pubs.
Why is the price so low?
Apartments like this in the city center typically rent for substantially more than what we are charging. So why is ours so much less? Though we actually prefer living a bit outside the hassle of central London, many tourists want to be right in the thick of things. So our fees are considerably less in part to make up for the 18-minute train ride to the city. Secondly, the decor and furnishings are traditionally British, not upscale and touristy. And the common areas aren't plush--the stairs aren’t carpeted, there is no elevator, and at the entrance you'll be greeted by recycle bins rather than a doorman! When we travel in Europe we always seek 'value apartments' like ours--we’re looking to rent our flat to like-minded people who appreciate a clean, comfortable and very well-equipped place to stay as a base for exploring London but don't require upscale, luxurious accommodations.
We're one floor up
Note that the flat is on the 'first floor,' that is, one floor up from the ground level. There is no elevator so you must be prepared to walk up a flight of stairs with your luggage.
We maintain a strict no-smoking policy..
- wheelchair inaccessible
- non smoking only
- children welcome
- pets not allowed
We lived in London for five years before moving to Seattle, Washington, USA. We like to travel back to London at least once a year--this flat is our cherished second home, not an 'investment property.' While at the flat we often rendezvous with family from Germany and love to have our grown kids come too. While we're not there we like to make it available to others at a very favorable rate.
Beckenham, Bromley is a quiet, safe suburb near to downtown London. It's a real community that's not at all touristy, so it's a nice antidote to the bustle of central London. Because it's so close to a rail station, with frequent service directly to central London, it has all the benefits of a convenient location with less noise and expense than living right in the city.
We love being in a small vibrant multi-cultural community with a park directly across the street and grocery stores, ATMs, pubs and restaurants within easy reach. With only a three-minute walk to the train station it couldn't be more convenient!
