Recommendations for a London Connection type of company

Now that London Connection is gone I'm looking for a recommendation for a similar type of company for my new search for a place in London. I'll resort to AirBnB or VBRO if I have to, but I really liked the personal customer service I was given by LC when it was still in operation. Are there other vacation rental management companies out there?

We’ve used Coach House Rentals and were very happy with everything.

We have rented two different properties from London Perfect. Both were very well equipped, nice linens and towels too. The best thing about them is their customer service. I recommend them highly.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I'll start looking.

2nd trip to London, it was scheduled for the last 2 weeks of September, 1 week in London then up to York for a few days and then somewhere else tbd. Our first trip 2 years ago we stayed in Conventry and loved the location, but the place wasn't available. This time we had booked a 2 bedroom in Mayfair. Traveling with my wife and Mother-in-Law. Budget tbd but I think the Mayfair apartment was about £240/night. Higher than I'd like, but not a deal breaker.

My flight hasn't been cancelled yet, but I'm patient and continue to see how things are shaping up. If we cancel, we'll likely book for the same 2 weeks next year.

Do hope you don’t have to cancel but like hearing you’ll reschedule if you must.

Since you’ve have reserved a Mayfair apartment and this is your second trip might a suggest a few things that might be of interest to the 3 of you.

Royal Academy of the Arts - check on line to see what is showing
Mercado Mayfair church turned into a food hall
Peek into Liberty
Berkeley Square
The Cartoon Museum
The Wallace Collection
The Rose Garden in Regent’s Park
Old Bank of England Pub
Coach and Horses Pub
Brown Hart Gardens
Mount Street Gardens

Just a few spots you might enjoy.

Thanks Claudia, you've given me some more things to look up. On the list for this trip; Imperial war Museum to see the WW1 exhibits, National Portrait Gallery, a second visit to the London Museum, British Museum-Medieval Europe Gallery and Windsor.

Thanks Allan. Happy to help.

Been visiting London since Nixon was in office. It’s always changing yet always the same. Simply love my trips there. Still have not visited all of the free museums. Restaurant scene went from zilch to brilliant. The area near St Pancras Station went from the dregs to the inviting Coal Drop Yards.

Cannot wait till next year so I can return for another Christmas stay.
