My hospitality For you and always

Founded by Ed May, Ed’s career started in America working in luxury independent hotels, including the #1 hotel in the world in 2003 as voted by Conde Nast, followed by managing chalets in Courchevel 1850, France.

Ed started his first private home rental service company in 2008, being the first company in England to offer hotel services in homes no matter where guests stayed. Ed still travels privately with clients and continues to expand the group structure to support and develop the luxury private rental market.

To date, Ed has developed three brands that all work within the luxury and exclusive property rental sector and is well respected by Michelin Star chefs, Global Travel Agents and some of the finest properties in the world. 

Money has always bought luxury, expensive destinations and 1st class travel, but we wanted to create a business that went beyond what could be bought.  Since 2008 we’ve had the pleasure of hosting clients’ celebrations, travel and hospitality. Clients who seek the very best, expect the highest levels of privacy, attention to detail and transparency from enquiry through to execution.To weave that invisible thread of authenticity that could be felt throughout every part of every heartfelt stay.
