The name Chelsea is synonymous with two things - affluence and football. Characterized by historic, yet chic buildings, there’s no denying that this area’s history is strongly linked to the British aristocracy, a past that, much like the rest of the city, runs deep. Set aside some cash for a shopping experience like none other. As you stroll through King’s Road and Sloane Square, you’ll encounter plenty of posh stores, some with eye-watering price tags but others with prices closer to the ground. If shopping isn’t your thing, be sure to drop by Stamford Bridge, the iconic stadium that’s home to Chelsea Football Club. Whatever you intend to do, be sure to book the ideal home. Read on to learn about the best Vrbo accommodations in and around Chelsea, London.

1. Charming two-bedroom apartment (from USD 310)

The allure of this apartment lies in its vibrant aura, one that’s perpetuated by the bursts of bright color, complemented by the floods of light streaming in via the massive windows. All these work in cahoots to make this a very lively space, rubbing off this mood on all those who visit. The decor has been cleverly thought through and it features beautiful framed photos of famous London landmarks, hung on the walls of each room.

There are two bedrooms here in which, as the host puts it, there is high-quality Egyptian cotton linen on luxurious beds. However, the pièce de résistance is the rooftop terrace, a private space marked by stunning plants and tranquility, which makes it a perfect place to chill out at the end of the day.

2. Luxury executive apartment (from USD 291)

This apartment is modest in its size but emanates a luxurious appeal, perhaps because of the modern, chic furniture, the stylish fittings, or perhaps because of the breathtaking city view via the windows. Whatever the case, this delightful rental is bound to leave you spellbound. The interior, as mentioned, isn’t very expansive, with the living space also doubling as the dining area. However, the clever design makes it feel as spacious as any other Chelsea apartment.

There’s a dedicated kitchen, a compact space, but fitted with all you’ll need if you’re planning to prepare your own meals. And there are two bedrooms, each with a double bed. Combined with the sofa bed in the living room, a total of six can comfortably call this home. From here, simply stroll to the Natural History Museum or Hyde Park, which are both an easy walk away.

3. Stylish luxury apartment (from USD 183)

Minimalism is the word that comes to mind when you see this apartment.

Free from all the clutter of modernity, you have enough space to move about within. However, there are certain bits and pieces that give this apartment some character, for instance, the singular piece of wall art in the living room or the elegant vase with flowers on the dining table.

With one bedroom, this rental is ideal for couples and, from here, you’ll be able to easily explore London, thanks to the Earl’s Court tube station, found just two minutes away.

9. Opulent two-bedroom townhome

If history is what you seek, then this rental will give you a taste. Found in an 1830s-built home, there is evidence of the old English life, of course, now masked by modern design elements. However, you’ll still feel the essence of the past in the home, a feeling that’s present in the different rooms, from the living area to the dining room. If you play music, a grand piano is found in the living space, so you can enjoy a jam session with your loved ones.

Up to four guests can stay here, comfortably accommodated in the two bedrooms. Interested in cooking for yourselves? There’s a kitchen available, one that’s fully equipped, spacious, and one you’ll enjoy using.

10. Luxurious ground-floor apartment

This stunning apartment is found in St George’s Square at the heart of London. If you walk a few minutes, you’ll experience the splendor of Sloane Square and Oxford Street, two popular shopping destinations. This rental has an elegance that words simply can’t do justice. The entryway is a hall that’s exquisitely lit by a series of ceiling lights, reflecting off the sleek, tiled floor. On the walls, there are photographs, each encapsulated in a wooden frame.

There’s a lovely living room, spacious enough and furnished with rather rustic couches. And then there are two bedrooms, together sleeping four guests. However, the best part of the apartment is the courtyard, a private space where you can enjoy your meals or simply hang out.
