Domus Stay, launching this Spring, will offer guests short-term rental access to London’s most outstanding homes. The properties, located in the capital’s most vibrant neighbourhoods, are so much more than simply accommodation. In addition to providing the rare opportunity to stay in the chicest of design-led homes, guests will uniquely benefit from a dedicated guest services specialist, committed to fulfilling every request, however big or small.
Combining the very best of residential living with the quality of a five-star hotel stay, exceptional personal service provides guests with a 360-degree seamless lifestyle and fuss free modern living. Personally rooted, the guest specialist serves to nurture and build a close-knit relationship with clients, to offer incredible itineraries, providing a holistic end-to-end experience. Bespoke services on demand – from entertainment and the very best health and wellbeing experiences, to everyday essentials such as housekeeping and scheduled travel – help to take care of every aspect of the stay, ensuring a one-of-a-kind tailored experience.
Celebrating the best of British throughout, cutting-edge interior design in the homes sits alongside thoughtful and nostalgic touches – well-chosen books for bedtime reading, cashmere blankets and bathrooms stocked with organic Bamford products to complete the make-yourself at home experience.
Whilst health and safety is paramount for travellers, exclusively designed face masks are made available through a partnership between Domus Stay and local female tailor Caroline Andew. This is just one element of the brand’s partnership with Caroline, which also offers bespoke guest services including private shopping and personal consultations. Supporting local businesses is one of many sustainable keystones that ensures Domus Stay is speaking to the future of travel and design.
More than just a luxury concierge service, a choice of dynamic partnerships will enable guests to tap into undiscovered and often inaccessible elements of a locale through Domus Stay’s distinct lens and network. The in-house team works with the most prestigious partners, to curate the very best seasonal and cultural offerings not available elsewhere. Guests staying with Domus Stay this season can benefit from exclusive access, rates and experiences including:
- A day of discovery with the ‘Queen of Thrift’ Bay Garnett exploring London’s best places to shop pre-loved and vintage items
- Country pursuits with British heritage brand, Holland & Holland, with complimentary British Fizz on arrival, access to the exclusive Grounds, and use of their prized equipment during a private lesson
- An arts workshop with illustrator John Booth in the comfort of home or at his studio. Known for his work with Paul Smith and FENDI, John will help master the perfect figurative illustration using his signature mixed media style
Rachel Angell, Chief Operating Officer at Domus Stay comments, “Our properties at Domus Stay are perfectly placed to offer safe experiences for guests and a home-away-from-home. One of the most important differentiators for us is our team’s warm service. Their specialised attention to detail emphasises privacy, security, access and convenience, which really sets us apart. Their bespoke management of the property, adding all the homely touches and customisation, is also to a level not seen in short term rentals before. We’re very excited to welcome our first guests this spring and offer an important new and differentiated voice to London’s luxury arena.”

Where to Stay:
Lower Addison Gardens – Ideal for business
This Notting Hill townhouse bursts with life with vibrant interiors and modern furnishings spread across all four floors. There’s plenty of space for family or friends in this property, with six uniquely designed bedrooms, two studies that provide the perfect hideaway for any business duties, and a tranquil garden allowing guests to relax together, in private. Local Holland Park boutiques, cafes and an abundance of open spaces are all within a stones throw.
St Petersburgh Mews – Ideal for friends
Reminiscent of a cottage-inspired retreat in the heart of Notting Hill, this secluded home is distinctly cosy. Effortlessly blending countryside interiors with the demands of a metropolitan lifestyle, this two-bedroom property is incredibly multifunctional.
With a built-in workshop, a home office and a spacious open-plan layout, it can serve as both a creative studio and the perfect entertainment space. Brimming with globally influenced oeuvres that celebrate fine art, each floor of this home inspires creativity.
The master bedroom is the pièce de resistance, spreading across the third floor to offer considerable living space, a walk-in wardrobe and a crisp en-suite.
Tucked between the upscale high street of Westbourne Grove and leafy Hyde Park, St Petersburgh Mews offers the best of both worlds from sunlit picnics to West London’s prime locales.
Westbourne Park Villas – Ideal for families
Colourful, stylish and full of character, this five-bedroom home pairs modern and mid-century interiors with eclectic furnishings to create a memorable and knockout space. Showcasing the best of British design and a creative’s dream home-from-home, statement artwork (to include any named pieces) can be found throughout and a separate music room provides a sanctuary to relax surrounded by audio tributes.
One of London’s best-kept secrets, this picturesque residential area is a firm favourite among families in the city. At the weekends they flock to nearby Kensington Gardens after a morning exploring Portobello Road where stylish cafes, organic delis and lifestyle boutiques sit beside traditional butchers and greengrocers.
Domus Stay has launched in the UK initially with plans to extend its property portfolio to European hotspots by the end of 2021.
