Veronica has made my day! She arrived on time and maximised the time she had. She went over and beyond with ensuring all areas of my home were cleaner and also helped entertain my one year old at the same time. Will definitely be booking again. Thank you!

Candida - Addington, 5 days ago

Professional, friendly and hard working. She worked non stop for 5.5 hours. and was very prompt with her work. Im extremely pleased with her work. Thanks Carly

Shaud - Addington, 1 month ago

Monica was absolutely amazing! Her hotel cleaning experience really showed. She left my bathroom looking amazing and her attention to detail is fabulous, moving beds to clean behind / underneath them etc. Overall Monica went above and beyond to leave my flat spotless.

Natasha - Addington, 1 month ago

Danielle was lovely, super friendly and did a brilliant clean - the flat is sparkling! Thanks, again

Susannah - Addington, 1 month ago

Monica was brilliant - she stayed late (beyond when she needed to) just to get the job done and my flat is pristine. Will welcome her back with open arms, thank you.

Susannah - Addington, 2 months ago

Danielle did an amazing job, leaving the place in a pristine condition. She was effective and fast. As i am working remotely while she is performing her duties, I also appreciated how she managed to deliver while keeping a limited noise level. Thank you very much

Location information about Shirley

Situated on the southern edge of London, Shirley is an area within the London Borough of Croydon.

Shirley is known as the former home of the Lloyd's Monks Orchard House, which has sadly now been demolished, and the current home of Shirley Windmill, which is widely thought to be the last large windmill that was built in Surrey. In pop culture, Shirley is known as the home of Ronnie Corbett, of 'The Two Ronnies' fame.

Much of Shirley was built in the twentieth century, with many of the flats and houses that stand today being erected during the interwar years. The wide selection of detached and semi-detached houses in the area has made Shirley a popular destination for those looking to move out of the city to a quieter area.

For those looking to travel into Central London, Shirley is just a short bus ride from East Croydon station, which has frequent Thameslink connections into the city.
