The house itself is in a living area but close to the centre of Crystal Palace which provides many restaurants and a big supermarket. The area is very quiet, the garden with the old trees gives you a feeling of relaxation and so do the nearby parks. With their squirrels, different types of birds (You can see also parrots in Westow Park when you walk to the playground) and foxes (especially in morning and night time) the area can also be a zoological experience and very recreative.
From Crystal palace station there are regular trains to London Bridge and Victoria Station (app. 25-30 min ride) (URL HIDDEN)
The apartement itselve is in the basement. It consists of two small rooms with small windows towards the garden, one is equipped with a small single bed (not long enough for a tall person), the other one contains a bigger bed which could be used by a couple, the dining table and a television with dvd-player. All beds were comfortable. So was the bath-tub with the shower. The kitchen area is in the entrance area with no natural light. There you find an electric kettle, a normal sized fridge, a board with basic equipment of cups, plates, glasses, cutlery etc. and space to keep your foodstuffs. The kitchen doesn't have a hob but a microwave grill with which one can also cook. The apartment also provides a pressing iron and a small ironing board. There is a washing machine in the house which is free for use. The hosts respect privacy. Questions and wishes from our side were always answered friendly and promptly. All in all the stay was a very positive experience!
