About the owner: Hi, My name is Doreen. I am a young 51 yr old. I use to do property developing and interior designing. Although I am quite a shy person, I love socialising and regarly go out for a social drink or dancing. I have 2 grown up children who are doing well for themselves. I live with my partner and have a very happy relationship. He is a jolly person and is liked whereever he goes.
Why the Owner Chose Croydon: I had no idea that I would end up doing holiday letting which I enjoy immensely. It started with a friend of my other half who was celebrating a big birthday. He had a lot of relatives coming over from abroad for the party. He know we had a huge place with plenty of extra rooms with ensuites and kitchenettes etc. We where happy to have his relative stay for a small fee. My partner and I enjoyed it sooo much that we decided to do it as a business. The rest is history.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: The benefit of this business is meeting so many different kind of people from all over the world. I enjoy making sure that they are comfortable and happy with their stay. I get great satisfaction receiving compliments on the apartment and the fact that the guest like me as a person. Always looking forward to meeting my new guest. Overall I couldnt have picked a better business.
