Half the UK population now owns a pet. A growing number of shops and cafes will say yes to dogs. Yet so many UK landlords say no to renting with pets. At Pets Lets, we work with lots of clients relocating from the US to London with their pets. They all cannot believe what a ‘big deal’ it is to rent with a pet. If you are coming to the UK for a short stay with your pet, Phonenix Luxury Stays is South West London’s leading pet friendly short term accommodation provider. A pet friendly style airbnb or vrbo in London. They really do go that ‘extra mile’ for pet owners. A more dog friendly personal property service.

Why South West London?

We all have our favourite parts of London. For someone flying to London with their pet, it is difficult on where to focus. Everyone gives their different opinions. At Pets Lets, we have found that a lot of our American clients are split between North West and South West London. What they have in common is lots of green space to let the dogs run about. As a ‘Southerner’, I feel South West is that bit more green and open. Just a personal preference.

The parks and commons are endless and you are close to Central London. Battersea Park is picturesque and Chelsea is just across the river. Clapham Common is vast and lost of the surrounding shops, cafes etc are dog friendly.

Pawsome Putney

Situated in leafy South West London by the river, Putney faces Fulham across the Thames. It is in Wandsworth borough, just within Zone 2. Putney is perfect for those who want a little peace for their city lifestyle, characterised by stunning architecture, plenty of greenery, and the knowledge it’s a safe environment. With a quick overland railway service to Waterloo, busy high street and the family scene’s vibrancy, Putney manages to maintain a small-town feel and charm of its own.

Putney main line station is located around 7 minutes’ walk away and connects to Waterloo in 15 mins on a direct overground train. It is a 10 minute walk from East Putney underground station on the district line.

Phoenix Luxury Stays, South West London’s leading pet friendly short let specialists, with a growing portfolio of dog and cat friendly rentals, have just opened their latest building in Putney called Hague House. The apartments are a 7 minute walk from Putney High Street which is lined with shops/restaurants/bars. Walking to the river there are pubs and restaurants. Just a wonderful place to sit and watch the world go by with your dog.

A scenic and yet central location, the building has a communal garden, two of the 9 flats have a private balcony, 9 parking spaces available. All pet friendly. The owner of Phoenix Luxury Stays has a dog called Alfie and is all pro pets in his properties. Great to have a pet friendly landlord. A rare ‘breed’, excuse the pun!

Alfie is in charge at the office. As they say at Phonenix Luxury Stays. We love the fact that they pick the locations that are great for walking the dog.

In fact, at any one time, over 40% of their tenants have dogs. A large proportion fly into London from the US with their dogs and cats. The appeal is the close proximity to Central London, yet that feel of being in the ‘country’ by parks commons and even the River Thames. Cross the river and you have the stunning Bishops Park which is Grade II listed with English Heritage.

We had a Pets Lets, US client rent long term with their 2 dogs last year in Putney. An awesome split-level maisonette off Putney High Street. They love the location:

”Furbabies are happy and we are loving Putney. It’s an excellent fit for all of us!”
