Beautiful and completely private self-contained studio with double bedroom, own kitchenette, shower room/WC. Attached to large Victorian family house in quiet residential area.
Situated in Zone 3 - only 3 minutes from Streatham Common station with trains into Victoria (16 minutes)
Laundry facilities upon request (small charge of £3 per load)
A very comfortable apartment room with double bed, seating area, en suite shower room and private kitchen. Situated on the ground floor of a double fronted Victorian House. Free WiFi is available along with with Freeview TV.
We are a family with 2 children and a very friendly West Highland Terrier dog called Jasper, that loves people. You are highly likely to meet him in the garden.
The apartment is self contained and situated at the rear of the house with its own entrance, making it very peaceful and quiet. You will have access to the large garden with your own seating / dining area to use when the weather is nice. There is also free on street parking available should you require it.
We are usually available to help with any questions or problems you might have during your stay and would love to have a cup of tea with you when you arrive, and tell you all about the local area and how best to get around London.
There is a great local pub called The Railway which is literally round the corner which serves tea and home baked cakes during the day and has a gastro-pub menu in the evenings, as well as serving some fine local beers and ales. For a late evening's entertainment there is The Hideaway Jazz and Comedy Club which is as good a venue as anything in central London.
In terms of restaurants, there are lots to choose from - The Bull pub does great food and The Moorish does delicious Moroccan food cooked in a traditional terrine. Whether it's Chinese or an Indian curry, whatever you're looking for, you can find locally. Or for cheap and cheerful we have a number of local cafes, one of which is situated on the beautiful Streatham Common.
However if you really want to experience what the tourists don't usually see, we can help you with that. We have some fantastic green spaces locally, and hidden gems like the Rookery gardens on the Common. Great 'bring your own' local restaurants that won't cost very much but the cuisine is to die for.
There is extremely good local transport. You will be in travel zone 3 which is very convenient to get into central London.
3 minutes walk away is Streatham Common Railway station. The train takes only 16 minutes to London Victoria.
There are also trains to London Bridge and several local buses.
Just one stop from Streatham Common will take you to Balham, which is on The London Underground (Northern Line).
Streatham Common trains:
London Victoria - 16 minutes
London Bridge - 30 minutes
There are also trains to Milton Keynes and Watford Junction from Streatham Common
We have another local railway station nearby called Streatham Station (not to be confused with Streatham Common station) which is only a 10 minute walk away. Thameslink trains from here will take you through the City of London to Kings cross and Milton Keynes (and as far as Luton).
Buses to connect you to The London Underground in Brixton where you can take the Victoria Line into Central London.
Private kitchen with fridge and dishwasher, shower room, access to the garden and a private seating area. Breakfast items provided for the first couple of days of your stay to help you settle in.

- Ground floor access, no stairs.
- Your own front door, so come and go as you please.
- No smoking.
- Respect the neighbours.
- Other than that we would simply like you to feel at home and have a great stay.

Friendly family house in quiet residential location. I will do my best to make sure your stay is as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. I have stayed in several airbnb houses on my travels and have a pretty good idea what makes me feel at home. I hope to provide that for you here if you come and stay.
