Thanks for a thorough clean Kelly, you did a great job and so courteous while I was working. Thank you

Lucy - Hither Green, 1 month ago

Delroy did an excellent job and left places in the flat that previous housekeepers didn't cover completely spotless. He was so kind, arrived right on time and was quick and efficient. Five stars for a great clean!

Sophia - Hither Green, 1 month ago

Catalina is amazing! Always on time (and gives a heads-up before arriving!), and the flat is sparkling. Would wholeheartedly recommend her!

Paula - Hither Green, 1 month ago

Monica was excellent and very thorough. She even helped to clean the fridge for me, going above and beyond.

Location information about New Cross

New Cross, in south east London, is a thriving and well-connected part of Lewisham.

The area is notably the home of Goldsmiths, University of London, an institution famous for its contribution to the arts. Damien Hirst, Damon Albarn and Vivienne Westwood are all household names that have graduated from the college.

There’s plenty of entertainment for locals in New Cross, with pubs such as the New Cross Inn and the Amersham Arms both hosting live music regularly. New Cross is in close proximity to Deptford and Peckham where an array of other daytime and evening entertainment can be found.

Along the main road, it’s mostly flats on the housing market, often above retail space. There are also plenty of Victorian terraced houses across New Cross, many of which are divided into flats to suit the student demographic. Developers have also moved into the area in recent years, so new-builds feature prominently on the market now too.

New Cross and New Cross Gate both offer easy access in and out of the area via the London overground service. These trains come every few minutes and New Cross Gate is even serviced overnight at the weekends.

The Housekeep platform takes many bookings across the SE14 postcode. All cleaners on the platform are background-checked and have at least 6 months domestic cleaning experience, to ensure a 5-star experience!
