Accommodation for 2012 Olympic Games to be provided by new service

A new service, providing accommodation during the London Olympic Games, has been launched by London Property Rental 2012. The properties provide accommodation for both families and groups and are located within fifteen minutes by train of Central London.

Set up by experienced property professional Carol Fox, London Property Rental 2012 provides a home-from-home experience by offering fully vetted, high quality private homes in highly desirable areas of London – all within walking distance of excellent transport links. The properties, owned by affluent families who have chosen to be away from the capital during the games, are comfortably furnished, well-equipped and provide added benefits of free parking, fast broadband and digital TV.

According to Carol Fox, Director of London Property Rental 2012, “We were approached by a friend in the United States who asked if he could rent our house during the Olympics. We saw immediately how families and groups would benefit by renting a quality family home during the 2012 Olympics rather than standard hotel rooms - especially those groups who need multiple rooms and have arranged their own travel and tickets to the London Games.”

Up to 350,000 foreign tourists are expected to visit London during the eight weeks of the 2012 Games, estimates the European Tour Operators Association, while Lord Coe has talked of up to ‘a million’ extra visitors. This far outstrips London’s estimated capacity of 100,000 hotel beds.

Says Fox, “Families and groups who want to stay together may find it difficult to find accommodation during the Olympic Games that offers the benefit of an intimate environment but which is also cost-effective. In setting up London Property Rental, we will provide a quality ‘home-from-home’ experience where guests can relax and unwind away from the games yet still be in the centre of London within a 15-minute train journey, to explore tourist attractions or access the Olympic venues.”

She added: “It’s not too late for Londoners to put their property with us for rent during 2012 Olympic Games. We are always on the look-out for high quality family homes in excellent locations with good transport to add to our portfolio.

“We are finding that a large number of London home-owners are opting to go away during the Olympics and are accessing our service to earn money by making their property available for a 2012 managed let during July and August next year. And, in a lot of cases, the rental income generated will more than cover the cost of their summer holiday.”

London Property Rental 2012 offers private homes available for rent near the Olympic venues in Dulwich and across South London for visitors to the 2012 London Olympic Games.

London Property Rental 2012 is part of the Fox Vision family, a privately owned company run by Carol Fox and her husband Nick that has been trading for over 10 years. Based in Dulwich, Fox Vision provides a range of services including London property rentals, Home Energy Inspections, floor plans, lease plans and Energy Performance Certificates.

Fox Vision has launched London Property Rental 2012 to showcase private houses available for let in Dulwich for visitors to the London Olympic Games during July and August 2012.
