Accommodate London Posh London Home Rentals

How much will we get in the Olympics gold rush?


The London Evening Standard published a nice feature by Ginetta Vedrickas in their Homes & Property section, including an interview with Joanna Doniger.

The feature has some good tips for owners who are thinking of renting for the Olympic Games.

‘Many are seen but few are chosen’, Doniger says she looks for homes with good transport links, WiFi, a flat-screen TV, cleaning and linen changes offered and a meet-and-greet service.

“It is expected and the personal touch means that they are more likely to take care of your property,” says Doniger who, on the thorny issue of rental rates, cautions: ‘Owners must not be greedy. London has many hotels so you must be competitive.’

‘They like space where they can relax, kick their shoes off, maybe have a barbecue. These are people who want to save money on expensive hotels and who also feel that hotels can be a bit claustrophobic and soulless.’
