The luxury AIRBNB alternative is here: VEEVE

Whether you frequently travel or enjoy escaping the city in the summer, there's an opportunity for you to earn extra income by renting out your home, minus the hassle of managing bookings. The Veeve home rental service, facilitates this by leveraging its team of experts who handle the entire process. This allows homeowners to make money while they are away.


This sounds like AIRBNB, right? Well, not exactly. Veeve is vetting the properties that go on its books to ensure high-end listings that can range from a few hundred to thousands of pounds per night.


Most of their listings are for multi-bed properties in affluent areas across London and Paris, that can make the perfect holiday rental for large family gatherings.


What is the Veeve Service?


Their mission is simple: to make short stays as effortless and rewarding as possible, allowing hosts to unwind on holiday or concentrate on their business, while Veeve takes care of everything else.


Veeve can offer a dedicated account manager who will manage your bookings and calendar to maximize your home’s earning potential and guide you as you prepare for your guests’ arrival.


Taking the guesswork out of the whole process, Veeve also vets guests before arrival to provide maximum reassurance your home is in safe hands. Guests will also be welcomed on arrival at check-in and provided with a tour to acquaint themselves with the property and any house rules.


What's more, if guests have any queries during their stay then the Veeve Guest Services team will be on hand to manage these, to enable you to enjoy your time away in peace.



What do the Veeve properties look like?


From artist studios to large properties that can host more than 10 people, each listing offers something unique, from location to size or amenities. Let's have a look at a few that caught our eye.

Does my home qualify?


If your home is uniquely designed, spacious, and in a desirable central location then it may be a suitable property to list on Veeve. The agency focuses on key events that take place in London throughout the year, such as Wimbledon and London Fashion Week so there is an opportunity to rent your home outside of peak times like summer and Christmas.


The majority of their listings are in central London locations such as Belgravia, Knightsbridge, and South Kensington, although Wimbledon, Richmond, Clapham, and Wandsworth are increasing in popularity.


How should I prepare my home before a holiday let?


Ensuring that you protect your personal belongings during a holiday let is paramount. You cannot take all your belongings with you while you are away so if you have valuables, like art of jewellery, these need to be safely stored away.


If you have home insurance that covers your personal belongings, check with your insurance company if they will provide cover for anything damaged or stolen while you have guests over. Always read the small print and check with the rental agency what cover they offer should the worst happen.
