About Kip.

We dreamed up Kip to make holiday-planning simple. Finding amazing, affordable rentals is incredibly time consuming, even stressful! How do you cut through the dross on enormous sites? Are the reviews reliable? And are you getting the best price? Something that should be fun can become a real headache.

We’ve worked in the boutique travel industry for years and realised there was a gap in the market for our expertise: a website that only features gorgeous self-catering hideaways for 2-4 people, in the £50-200/night price bracket. And through months of research and insider contacts we’ve found the very best ones.

We love their beautiful style, and we really love the thoughtful detail that make them so special. Perhaps a hand-drawn map of favourite walks. An outdoor hot tub where you can stargaze by night. Or a homemade cake waiting by the teapot when you arrive. It’s been brilliant finding owners who genuinely care that their guests have an amazing stay.

Our reviews are unique, honest and impartial – the things we’d tell our friends. We even highlight the potential drawbacks of each place to help you choose.

Then we hook you up so you can book direct with the owners.

Many of the hideaways fly under the radar (it’s part of their appeal), so to help keep them exclusive we decided on a membership site. But a very affordable one, to create a community of like-minded souls to share our discoveries with.

Membership is just £10 a year or £1.99 for 30 days (pay as you go). And no booking fees, ever.

But until 31st Dec 2019, you can get a year’s membership completely free!

About us.

Sarah de Vere-Drummond spent 10+ years in boutique travel marketing before jacking in the 9-5 to put all her creativity into Kip.

“We wanted to build a brand that connected to us and people like us. Kip is about more than just lovely little places to stay. It’s about going somewhere that sparks joy and connection, enjoying simple pleasures and taking the time to enjoy the beauty around us.”

Loves: warm sun, fresh flowers, lazy mornings and large pieces of chocolate cake.

Liz Simpson is the former editor of boutique travel website i-escape.com, and a magazine journalist by trade (Glamour, Elle, Wanderlust).

“Our standards are extremely high, because days off are so precious. We only feature places we’d personally love to escape to and spend time with people we love, disconnecting from the stresses of everyday life.”
