About us

What is Londonrentmyhouse.com ?

Founded in July of 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 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 currently only one small payment of £20 to get your advert online.

It is free for guests to signup and contact homeowners.

In the beginning

Having a fascination of all things Australian from his backpacking days in 2001 founder Matthew Parker took inspiration from private rental success stories during the Sydney 2000 Olympics. In 2005 when London won the 2012 Olympic bid the media recognized and reported the problem which will arise in housing millions of visitors that will flood into London.

Matt set about creating www.londonrentmyhouse.com to put together London homeowners, who would like to offer private accommodation, with visitors looking for a convenient and comfortable alternative to expensive hotels rooms. The site opened to the public in December 2007.

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.
