London, England Luxury Vacation Rentals & Homes

The perfect stay
in London, England

Cutting-edge street fashion. History. Pageantry. It could only be London. There’s something for everyone in this vivacious, characterful city, from world-famous sites, art galleries and museums to bustling street markets and foodie hotspots.

Our London homes and apartments are as unique as the city itself. Whether you’re searching for a sleek penthouse apartment in the heart of Covent Garden or a stately Georgian townhouse in leafy Kensington, let us match you to your dream London hideaway.

London embraces every single world culture and gives it a unique spin. You’ll get the best bagels in Brick Lane, or go totally organic in Shoreditch. Ask any Londoner where the best Chinese food is to be found and they’ll point you towards a tiny side-street just off Leicester Square. Ghost tours of East London are always great fun, taking you to the lesser-known spots that are well off the tourist trail. Just ten minutes from Paddington Station you’ll find Little Venice, a charming waterside community along the Grand Union Canal and close to the artist’s haven of Camden. Or seek out a peaceful spot to eat your lunchtime burrito next to St Olaf’s Church, the oldest Medieval building in London and surrounded by the glass skyscrapers of the City.

At the end of a busy day sightseeing, our luxury vacation homes in London welcome you with sublimely elegant interiors filled with bespoke touches and contemporary artwork. Your dedicated concierge will take care of your every need, from childcare to booking theatre tickets for that must-see show on Drury Lane.

Things you can't miss
  • Tuck into an afternoon tea - a traditional English pastime.
  • Explore the London skyline on a private helicopter tour.
  • Browse the boutiques along Burlington Arcade.

Best time to go

  • During spring: it has to be a trip out of the city and off to the world-famous Kew Gardens to see the cherry blossom in full bloom. Head to the river for the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, or to Chelsea for the Flower Show.

  • During summer: it can get pretty hot in London in the summer with the temperatures climbing into the mid-80s°F (mid 20s°C). Cool off with a touch of wild swimming at Hampstead Heath’s Swimming Ponds or Hyde Park’s Art Deco Serpentine Lido.

  • During autumn: a great time to visit and stay in one of our homes in London. The crowds have gone and the weather is still warm. In September there’s the Totally Thames festival, a month of celebrations of the city’s artery, the River Thames. The London Restaurant festival runs through October and is a wonderful opportunity to taste food from around the world.

  • During winter: don’t expect much in the way of snow in the capital, that’s a rare event. But that doesn’t stop Christmas markets from popping up all over the place. There’s plenty of availability for show tickets in the West End, too. You’ll need a warm coat and an umbrella, but there are always lots of cafés to pop into for a hot chocolate or coffee.

How to get there

Make the journey as memorable as the arrival. Your dedicated Concierge can arrange transportation from the closest airport or train station to your London home.

By plane

London is served by multiple airports including Heathrow, Gatwick, Stanstead and London City Airport. Your dedicated concierge can arrange either Premium or Standard transfers to your home in London from any arrival point.

By train

The city’s rail service is exceptional, with an international terminal for the Eurostar in the heart of the city, and the London Underground system covering all parts of the capital.

By car

The local roads are notoriously congested, so if you’re staying at a home in London then it’s best to avoid driving. However, if you want to explore a little further afield and head to the Cotswolds or the South Downs for a day, your dedicated concierge can arrange car hire for you.

Local Tips

  • As you may be taking the tube (that’s the London Underground for those who don’t know!) we recommend that you pay with your contactless credit card - it's the same price as an Oyster card and much more convenient.
  • Like many European capitals, the best way to discover parts of the city (and especially the parks) is on foot. You can also go horseback riding in Hyde Park.
  • Some of the popular attractions of the city get crowded, especially during school holidays. Booking well in advance or ask your dedicated concierge to arrange passes to avoid the long queues.
