Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Really spacious, well located garden flat. New bathroom and new furnishings.

Crystal Palace is quite arty- with a 'village-like' feel to it. There are some great cafes, bars, restaurants and little boutique shops. There is free parking.

It's a spacious, light flat. You should have everything you need for a great stay. Bed linen and towels are supplied. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a new bathroom and a new boiler. There are lots of books and magazines at the flat. There is even a hairdryer.

You will have access to every room in the flat, including the garden where you can have barbecues in the summer.

I live in Balham, which is a couple of stops on the overland train so you can call me at any time if you need help.

Crystal Palace is fab. There are lots of new bars and restaurants opening. There is also lots of greenery and wide open spaces. You have the amazing views across London too. I am sure you will love it.

One of the joys of Crystal Palace is that there's no need to venture far to eat, drink and shop.

There's plenty of choice on the Triangle: Domali is a relaxed all-day café; the Sparrowhawk is a recently renovated pub with a gutsy, European-influenced menu; Mediterranean is a welcoming Sardinian restaurant; and Edo does great sushi. Joanna's restaurant is great. A favourite bar is Numidie. Grape and Grain have live jazz on a Sunday evening and people go and jive the afternoon away.

The Paxton Arms in Gipsy Hill has great pies. Green and Brown's at Crystal Palace station is good for coffee and breakfast.

Shops include vintage furniture emporia and much-loved bookshop The Bookseller Crow. For edible treats, there's a Saturday food market, and deli Good Taste specialises in cheese and charcuterie

Crystal Palace still retains much of its impressive Victorian architecture.

The "Crystal Palace Triangle", formed by Westow Street, Westow Hill and Church Road, is the place to go for restaurants and many independent shops.

Lastly, don't forget Crystal Palace Park which is great for a run or a walk. If you are interested in football, you could visit Crystal Palace football club.

A regular service to Highbury & Islington supplements those to Victoria and London Bridge, making it easy to get right across London. Crystal Palace is in Zone 2. There are 6 stations that are a walking distance or a short bus ride away.

From Crystal Palace train station:-

It's 16 mins to London Bridge Train Station

It's 26 mins to London Victoria Train Station

It's 41 mins to Oxford Circus tube station

To Gatwick Airport:-

It's 58 mins in a taxi

It's 42 mins on the train (every 30 mins)

The 157 bus is at the end of the road. The buses run every 10 mins and take you to Crystal Palace station in 6 mins.

About Karen

I am a Marketing Consultant who has lived in London for 17 years. I can share with you lots of tips on things to do to make the most of your stay here.

Why Karen chose London

The flat is really spacious and in a great location. The neighbours are my friends! It is a really friendly road. It is decorated in a contemporary style and I have a great cleaner who keeps it spotless. There are all the modern conveniences that you need:- TV/ microwave/ wifi. The kitchen is fully equipped so that you can cook from home. The bathroom and the washing machine are new. The beds are super comfy. There is a lovely garden where you can enjoy a beer or a glass of wine in the summer. What's not to love?! Best of all, there is easy access into central London. There are x4 stations close by:- Anerley, Penge, Crystal Palace and Birkbeck. There is a bus stop at the end of the road. You could walk to Anerley station through leafy Betts park and it's a 10 minute walk. Alternatively, a quick hop on the bus will take you to Crystal Palace station in 5 mins and from there, you can get to London Bridge in 16 minutes.

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is extremely well located on a quiet, residential street. There is free, on road parking. There are two grocery stores that are a few minutes walk away. There are x4 trains stations nearby. There is a bus stop at the end of the road.

The perfect place for a perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I visited London for the first time and had an amazing holiday! Karen's flat was everything we hoped it would be, and more! The neighborhood was charming, peaceful and friendly. The flat was spacious and clean and very accommodating. We did not have a car, but we're able to get literally anywhere by means of the accessible public transportation. We walked to the Aldi and Tesco Express for shopping. We also walked to the Marlow Fish Bar around the corner, for fish and chips, and the Mega Cafe for breakfast. We enjoyed Brown & Green Cafe in Crystal Palace, for coffee and tea. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay and would definitely choose Karen's flat again, when we make it back to London!

sehr schöne Wohnung für eine Woche London

  • 4 of 5

Das ist eine schöne Wohnung für einen Aufenthalt in London. Alles, was man benötigt, ist vorhanden (Handtücher, Bettwäsche, W-LAN, Geschirr und sogar einige Steckdosenadapter (trotzdem welche mitnehmen!). Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Gaststätten sind zu Fuß gut erreichbar (max. 10 min zum Tesco-Express oder Aldi). Zur Overground Station Anerly (Zone 4) dauert es zu Fuß etwa 15 min durch einen kleinen Park. Um zum Zentrum zu kommen, hat man mehrere Möglichkeiten. Bis Bahnhof London Bridge benötigt der Zug rund 25 min.

Bei Problemen (der Geschirrspüler funktionierte nicht) sind die Vermieter per Telefon erreichbar und kümmern sich um Besserung. Lediglich der Außenbereich könnte gepflegter sein.
