Anybody who travels a lot of work will tell you: staying in hotels ain’t always what it’s cracked up to be. Yes, there are some fabulous places to stay: boutiques hotels, classy five-start joints and the like, but more often than not, you’re left wanting a few of the home comforts that most hotel rooms simply can’t provide.

That’s why staying in self-catering accommodation proves so popular when it comes to families looking to escape for a while.

At, you’re seeing one of the best collections of rental properties that we've seen online. Here you can book with confidence, knowing that you’re dealing with an operation that’s set up just like a conventional travel booking site, but you’re dealing with the owners of the properties themselves.

If you’re a host, it’s free to sign up and advertise your property. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay you’ll find some great places and the prices are attractive too.

Definitely something to consider if you're yet to book your summer getaway.
