It would be hard to count the many ways that we love the charming neighbourhoods where our London Perfect vacation rentals are located. We hand pick our properties for their comfort and style as well as their location in the very best spots like Kensington, South Kensington, Notting Hill and Chelsea. London exudes historic charm and we want you to experience as much of the city’s atmosphere as possible during your holiday. One of the best ways to do that is by staying in a vacation rental where you’ll experience the London lifestyle in classic Victorian buildings and stylish homes. An added perk is having some outdoor space, where you can enjoy stepping out onto a terrace overlooking a historic garden square or rows of classic London buildings. Private gardens, patios and terraces are a rare find in central London, but we love finding the gems and sharing them with our guests. Here’s a look at just a handful of our lovely London vacation rentals with coveted outdoor space!
