The space

Lovely double room in a Victorian house in Streatham Hill, SW2,
the room has a very comfortable double bed with new mattress, huge sash windows, lots of storage space, a desk and internet access.
There is a brand new small fridge, and tea and coffee making facilities.
Although this is a double room I am very happy to have single guests stay in it.
There are several supermarkets, cafes , bars and 2 gyms nearby as well as 3 cinema's
We are in zone 3 , within walking distance( 10-15 minutes walk) of Balham underground station on the northern line, or 5 minutes walk to Streatham overground station, where trains go to Victoria and takes 17 minutes to get there,there are also several buses that go into the centre of London.
We are close to Brixton with it's vibrant market, a food critic recently stated that Brixton market is now one of the most exiting places to eat in London. The Ritzy is an art house cinema,with a great bar and cafe where you can hear live music, also nearby is the Hootenanny that was voted best live music venue in London recently places host to some great reggae artists, the Brixton Academy is a short bus ride away.
Just around the corner from the house is Tooting Bec Common, great for picnics in the summer and has an outdoor swimming pool/lido.

Living in the house is myself and my 22 year old daughter ,who is a nanny, and my older daughter who is a yoga teacher. We have a cat.
We prefer female guests .
We have internet access, washing machine , 2 toilets, all the usual mod cons, the kitchen could be used for light meals, breakfast not included, there is an Italian deli just around the corner that sells fresh croissants and pastries, tea and coffee provided. (Website hidden by Airbnb) We only have a few reviews for this room as we don't rent it out all the time, but have several reviews for our single room in the same house .

Had a wonderful and welcoming experience at Shirley's. Throughout my stay, Shirley was really great about checking in to ensure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. The room was spacious and cosy at the same time. A positive experience all around!

Shirley was a great host. I told her that it was my first time in London and she provided me with directions to her house, and even suggested some places for me to visit. The house is lovely, and is very accessible to train stations and bus stops. I would definitely recommend her…

I had a fantastic stay here. It suited my needs perfectly whilst I was working in London. I enjoyed my morning walk to the station and particularly appreciated the peace and quiet in Shirley's house. Definitely recommend.

Shirley was a very sweet and welcoming host! Her house is quirky which can be good and bad at times. It is very creaky, and we were woken up several times by her housemates walking around. We found it difficult to cook in the kitchen at times because of clutter. Overall the house…

I have lived in this part of London for 22 years, it is constantly changing and there are always new things to discover. I have 2 daughters, both at home at the moment. One of my daughters teaches hatha yoga so it would be possible to have yoga classes , while she is here. …
