London is an incredible city and there are a plethora of luxury options when choosing a place to stay; but none of them quite match-up to immersing yourself into the fabric of the city like a local by renting an apartment through UK Sotheby’s International Realty. Offering some of the most beautiful apartments (flats) and homes for rent, you can choose from a melange of options on their website to make your stay as personalized and special as possible. And, with luxury being a part of Sothebys International Realty’s DNA worldwide, you can expect professional service and an easy rental process before, during and after your trip.
On a recent trip to London, I rented a stunning two bedroom flat in the Belgravia neighborhood, near Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Knightsbridge shopping and international embassies. This flat struck me most of all their properties because of the astounding art collection that graced the walls of every room. At nearly 2,000 square feet and offering two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a private entry, terraces and a backyard – I couldn’t have found a more peaceful and elegant respite in a city that is bustling 24-hours a day. The owner is an avid art collector and staying here really felt like sleeping at the Tate.
Renting through UK Sotheby’s International Realty is very easy. After locating your property on their website, you simply send an inquiry and their prompt team will respond from an office almost immediately. The agents working with UK Sotheby’s International Realty are kind and thoughtful, as mine asked me about my plans while in town and offered to help me find the best property to fit my itinerary should the one I chose be unavailable. Luckily, this property, at 2 Halkin Street, was available.
Renting through UK Sotheby’s International Realty is a different experience when staying in London. Some prefer hotels with over-the-top services, which none can argue as a bad thing. But, if you’re coming alone or as a family, or in a group of friends and would like to stay as a local – in some of the best locations in the city, UK Sotheby’s International Realty has you covered. I loved unpacking my bags into my bedroom’s spacious closet, putting a few bouquets of fresh flowers in vases and running around the corner for a couple bottles of wine, fresh cheese from The Fine Cheese Company on Motcomb Street and snacks from WaitRose market. It’s a different experience, entirely. I can’t recommend it enough.
