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 2-8 people, in an affordable 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 £19 a year or £3.99 a month (rolling subscription). And no booking fees, ever.
