The Costas Family
Click to book The Costas Family now: from £155 per night The feeling of staying in this home which has been so well cared for is truly unbeatable. Balancing modernity with historical pieces is often hard to get right, but not in this home. The space has been newly renovated, but many repurposed materials have been included wherever possible, such as the coffee table made from the parquet flooring of another room. There's attention to detail at every turn, with an array of books, art and objects that act as a windows into the stories that have created the home. If you're a larger group of five or six, take a look at The Costas Siblings. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

It offers all the quirky perks of the city in a beautifully designed, soundproofed home. So, even if the kids are noisy, you can guarantee to find a spot that won't be.

Click to book Newington Green now: from £120 per night Couples seeking an off-the-beaten-track London stay will adore this hideaway home. It’s located in the leafy streets near dinky Newington Green, and a growing collection of artisanal bistros. Great pubs, trendy Dalston and Stoke Newington’s boutiques are also in strolling distance, and buses run direct to Oxford Street. You might just prefer to hole up, though – snuggling in the spacious log-burner lounge or sunbathing in the garden. The country-chic kitchen impresses, too, while a rear bedroom means you’ll wake up to birdsong. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Confectioner’s Sugar now: from £100 per night We hope you’ve got a sweet tooth because this pastel pink home is all sugar, spice and everything nice. The host has created an utterly unique aesthetic with a candy-coloured interpretation of classical Art Deco style – even the bathroom is decked out in blush pink and buttercup yellow tiles. But despite the colour scheme, there’s nothing saccharine about this home. Modern furniture and clean architectural lines avoid frilliness or fuss, and the light spilling through the huge windows makes the flat feel bright and breezy. It comes as no surprise that this home is located in oh so trendy Hackney, just a five-minute walk from the overground station and within seconds of cute cafes, flower shops, and vintage boutiques. In under thirty minutes by public transport you can shop along Oxford Street and dine in Shoreditch, though with countless bars and neighbourhood restaurants just outside your door, you’ll have everything you need around your Hackney home. We’re not sugar-coating it when we say this home is a treat. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
