About us

In the beginning

Having a fascination of all things Australian from his backpacking days in 2001 founder Matthew Parker took inspiration from home rental success stories during the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Initially with the London 2012 Olympics in mind, Matt set about creating www.londonrentmyhouse.com to put together London homeowners with guests looking for a place to rent. The site is now open for any form of private rental, short or long term.

What is Londonrentmyhouse.com ?

Founded in 2007 Londonrentmyhouse.com is a community marketplace for people to list, discover and book unique, convenient and comfortable home rental accommodation in and around London.

Why Londonrentmyhouse.com ?

Londonrentmyhouse.com puts together homeowners, who are in a position to offer a short term or long term private rental, with potential guests.

With a growing community of users and unlike other sites with NO commission charges, Londonrentmyhouse.com is the easiest way for people to monetize their extra space and showcase it to a global audience. Following free signup there is only one small payment of £20 to get your advert online.

It is free for guests to signup and contact homeowners.

The journey so far

We are amazed and excited at the response to the site and the entrepreneurial spirit shown by London homeowners as private rental opportunities are recognised. The site is now in full swing as we monitor the interaction and exchanges between visitors and homeowners and our range of adverts continue to grow.

Growing home rental community

We have included a social aspect to promote interaction and security between hosts and guests. To create your profile you need to be signed in.


Due to the speed that the site has grown we are able to offer useful commercial exposure to businesses that would benefit from space on the site. Please contact the webmaster for further details.
