Our Story & Our Service

We founded Stay with the Montagues in 2009 following a career as a shipbroker here in London. I wanted to spend some time abroad, hoping to finance the trip with income from our apartment in West London. Since we’d be abroad, we wanted someone to handle the whole process for us, but we were unable to find anyone we felt happy entrusting our home to. Eventually we found a tenant through a traditional high street agent, but the let didn’t go brilliantly, essentially because high street agents don’t really focus on short lets and we didn’t feel the let was managed as well as it might have been. I imagine the tenant who stayed in our flat felt the same.

So when we were abroad, I thought about setting up the kind of company that I would want to deal with, both as a homeowner and as a renter. Back in London, I got to work and founded  Stay with the Montagues with the clear view that it would be a professional, friendly, highly competent, practical service to clients on both sides.

To start with, we had a few properties, but over time, we have grown.

To our hosts, we aim to achieve the occupancy levels they want, whilst ensuring their homes are looked after very carefully. To our guests, we want to provide a consistently seamless and enjoyable booking experience and stay, every single time.

We are always learning and looking to improve every aspect of the business, from our website to our booking enquiry responses, from the occupancy rates of our homes to the quality of our bed linen, from our housekeeping reporting systems to guest check in logistics. These are all important aspects which improve our clients’ stays each time, but the main reason that our hosts and guests use Stay with the Montagues is because they know they will receive a personal, responsive and highly professional service.

Our service is steadfastly human in an increasingly distant, automated age and we take pride in the consistent feedback we receive telling us how we’re a joy to deal with: friendly and responsive, reliable, attentive and caring. Please feel free to explore these for yourself. I hope we can serve you too and leave you similarly impressed!
