Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013 (TripAdvisor)
Our stay was wonderful with comfortable accommodations. We were met upon our arrival by Mike who accompanied us to the flat. While there he took time to explain everything about the flat, the surroundings, including restaurants, and getting to London on the tube. One thing that stood out about the flat was that he had a folder that covered all the topics he had spent with me about in the event I forgot. In addition, about half way during our stay we were contacted by Mike in person, as well as Julie via email making sure everything was going well. Our accommodations were perfect. Very clean flat with all the necessary items to make the stay just right. The neighborhood has everything you need...great restaurants with a variety of food to choose from, two grocery stores, a park near by to jog, and the tube is convenient as well. About a three minute walk to flat from tube.
I highly recommend this flat for your stay while in London. Mike and Julie are great and would definitely stay there next time in London.

This property is just a 2-3 minute walk from Balham Tube & Mainline Station.
Located just 12 minutes from central London in South West London's Borough of Wandsworth, Balham is close to other popular areas such as Wandsworth Common, Clapham, Battersea, Wimbledon, Streatham and Tooting.
Tube & Train:
Northern Line with regular service every 2 minutes to central London from approximately 06:14 until 00:52.
Access to London's South East is very easy thanks to service by Southern Train Lines. Southern Trains offers frequent service to Victoria, Clapham Junction, Gatwick and Croydon.
Although parking is available a car is not necessary.
What Balham Offers:
Balham, with its higher than average population of residents who work in London in managerial and professional roles, is a safe suburban area with a relaxed neighbourhood feel. Close to central London, yet without that 'city rush', Balham seems to have a comfortable pace that is refreshing after a long day of sightseeing.
Peter Sellers immortalised Balham many years ago when he performed 'Balham, Gateway to the South', a comedy sketch parodying a short travel documentary about the suburb.
Just outside the apartment begin all of the bars, restaurants and shops of Balham's trendy town centre. Balham has a mixture of high street names such as Pizza Express and Starbucks along with independent names such as Harrison's Restaurant, a modern British brasserie with celebrity TV chef Rick Stein as an investment partner.
There is a large Sainsburys supermarket, the up scale Waitrose supermarket, independent organic food shops and Hildreth Street Market. A street market since the turn of the century, pedestrianised Hildreth Street comprises a small regular group of stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables, flowers and also offers special stalls in the Balham Farmers Market held on many Saturdays throughout the year.
The Bedford Pub, which is THE central community hub of Balham with its popular live music and Banana Cabaret stand-up comedy club is conveniently right next door to the apartment!
But if you feel like venturing past next door, Balham offers a very wide choice of venues for food and drink. Included amongst these are 'The Lounge', a Spanish tapas bar & restaurant that is across the street, 'Tagine', an authentic Morrocan restaurant, 'The Paddyfield' Vietnamese/Thai restaurant and the 'Cattle Grid' steakhouse.
Balham offers a range of services too, including many hair and beauty establishments, financial services and the Balham Leisure Centre with pool, sauna & steam room, gym, squash courts and exercise classes.
Tooting Common, Wandsworth Common and Clapham Common are all within walking distance. Nearby Tooting Common boasts the UK's largest open air swimming pool and has tennis courts, a children's playground and plenty of space for outdoor activities.
