Our recent stay at Lizzie's flat in Balham was perfect.
The street is adorable, with great restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs all walking distance. The flat is in a great location (very close to the train/tube station, within walking distance of Sainsbury's or Tesco express and lovely Wandsworth Common).
The apartment was a perfect size for 2 people, clean, and complete with everything you might need for an extended stay. We make most of our meals at home so we were glad to see there were pots and pans, knives, cutting board etc. Also, the place had all the other essentials like garbage bags, toilet paper, towels, soap.
Lizzie and her partner are fantastic hosts - very helpful, friendly and responsive. They even left us a welcome package (delicious chocolates!) which was very kind of them.
We would highly recommend them as they really are great and make the experience very pleasant and stress-free.
We are so pleased we decided to choose this place and not a hotel!
