Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013 (TripAdvisor)
I loved staying at this property. It was light and airy. I liked the fact that it was on a main road and I could see all the activity on the streets, and that it was so close to the station and the shops. The flat was very very clean and very well equipped. Julie, our letting agent was really brilliant. She showed us good customer care.
I'd stay there again but not with family. Perhaps with a couple of good friends because the flat is a quite small.

This property is just a 1 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.
