My home is quiet, cosy and spacious and you will be made very welcome. I live with my son who is 22 and two cats. I am semi-retired and he works most days for Marks and Spencers. There are local buses to Croydon, Bromley and beyond plus you can be in the centre of London within the hour with train stations around 20m walk away. Shirley is quite rural so has lots of lovely walks around as well as good restaurants and bars. An ideal base for solo adventurers and business travellers alike.

Jen is friendly but not intrusive. The room is comfortable and as picture. Location is quiet and good value for money. Easy access to shops, pubs and restaurants. Came and went as I wished.

The place was ok, Jen is easy to communicate with. The room is spacious, the bed is comfortable. Easy to get to East Croydon station. However, the bathroom, shower, sink in the bathroom and kitchen were not clean that disappointed me.

Booked with Jen. Booking was confirmed and paid for. She then cancelled at very short notice with no explanation. It meant that I had to find alternative arrangements at very short notice causing lots of inconvenience

Response from Jen:
Apologies for the inconvenience Zahir but I did sent a text by way of explanation but I think the text must have been an airbnb notification of a message from you. Airbnb did however tell me that they were going to phone you and explain that I felt uncomfortable about you having various guests to visit some of which might stay overnight. As a private house it is not really suitable for visitors unless paying. Regards. J
