We are very excited at Different Planet Travel to have teamed up with an amazing company who have access to a large portfolio of privately owned homes in London, New York, Los Angeles & Paris. They are exclusively managed and serviced. You can enjoy 5* linens, towels and toiletries as well as the use of an iPhone for the duration of your stay. Compared to hotel rooms in the city, the homes are spacious, characterful, and good value. But most of all, you’re offered something for the insatiably curious: the opportunity to live like a local.
Besides character and comfort, all available homes are equipped with:
-iPhone loaded with local tips from the home owner, with free 3G access and local calls
-Iron and ironing board (London only)
-Welcome items (gourmet tea, coffee and confectionery)
-An equipped kitchen
I know one of the home owners personally so know the attention to detail included. I am confident that for someone looking to stay a little longer or feel a little more independent but with the quality assurance you would usually find in a hotel, this is the answer. Of course for families with younger children the sense of space is amazing.
The usual issue with renting homes is that you never know what you are getting and who you contact if you need anything but with this new luxury approach to actually servicing these homes (including a midweek clean for a week stay) the bar has been raised.
