Rental Services

Homelike London is a rental service that lets you rent out your home while you're not there. You can choose to rent out a room in your house, or the entire house. The best part? The travellers are from all over the world!

Expanding into Europe and Beyond.

Homelike London is based in the UK, but it's expanding into Europe and beyond. Homelike London is a rental service that lets you rent out your home while you're not there.

The idea behind Homelike London came about when founder Liam Murphy was traveling through Europe and couldn't find any apartments or houses to rent for less than $200 per night--and he didn't want to pay that much! 

So, he decided to create his own solution: a platform where homeowners can list their properties on an online marketplace where people looking for accommodation can browse through available options by location, price range and other factors like whether pets are allowed or if there's access to Wi-Fi.

Available Properties

The company currently has 500 properties available on its site, with more than 200 of them in London. The rest are spread across Europe, the US and Australia.

The idea behind Homelike is simple: it lets you rent out your home while you're not there. You can do this by listing a room or entire property on its website, where anyone from students to families can book rooms at competitive prices that include cleaning and laundry services as well as access to communal spaces like kitchens and living rooms.

The service was created by four friends who wanted to share their homes with travellers. They had a shared vision: they wanted to create an alternative way of travelling, one that involved staying in people's homes and getting to know them as well as the city they lived in. The founders were all from London and knew each other through university or work.

Rent Rooms in Shared Flats

If you are looking for a place to stay in London, there are many options. The company can rent out rooms in shared flats or apartments. They also have the option of renting entire houses, flats, or apartments for people wanting a longer stay. If you are on a budget and need somewhere cheap to stay then this may be a good option for you.

Concierge Service 

If you're in London and want to know what to do, the concierge service can help. The concierges are available 24/7 and can recommend restaurants, bars and clubs based on your tastes. They'll also be happy to book tickets for shows or events--and if you're staying at Homelike London during the British Open golf tournament, don't worry about getting a tee time: the hotel has its own private course!

Additionally, guests who aren't sure where they want to go for drinks after work can ask one of the concierges for advice on nearby pubs that serve good cocktails or wine lists (or even both).

Note: Guests pay a booking fee of 30 pounds per night and then pay Homelike £50 pounds per night after that (plus 8% VAT).

  • Guests pay a booking fee of 30 pounds per night.
  • They then pay Homelike £50 pounds per night after that (plus 8% VAT).

Renting out your house while you're away can earn you some extra cash. The amount you can expect to earn depends on the location and time of year, but it could help pay off a mortgage or make improvements to your home.
