About us

Getting Started

Inspired by Sydney homeowners who helped meet the shortfall in affordable rental accommodation for visitors to the 2000 Olympics Matthew Parker designed and built a short term rental internet marketplace, londonrentmyhouse.com, targeting the London 2012 Olympics. The continuing demand has been such that sporteventsrentmyhouse.com was set up to provide a service to homeowners who are able to offer a place to rent close to a major sporting event.

What is sporteventsrentmyhouse.com?

Founded in 2010, sporteventsrentmyhouse.com provides a community marketplace for people to list, discover and book unique, convenient and comfortable home rental accommodation close to and during major global sporting events.

The site has become your established alternative to expensive commission charging home rental sites

Why choose us

Although many sites have followed our lead we have the experience and a proven track record. Importantly we are able to offer a commission free service whilst maintaining quality and the integrity of the site. We do include an option to make a voluntary payment at your discretion if you feel the service has been of particular value. We do ask for a nominal fee to list as experience has shown free to list sites merely attract scams and fraudulent postings.

How it works

sporteventsrentmyhouse.com puts together homeowners who can offer rental accommodation with a global audience of visitors looking for value, privacy, independence and a taste of life as a local.


To create an advert please register first and then complete our simple listing process. Remember, we do not charge commission so rental money is yours to keep.

The journey so far and into the future

We are amazed and excited at the global response to the site and the entrepreneurial spirit shown by London homeowners as private rental opportunities are recognised.

Due to the success of sporteventsrentmyhouse.com the site recently underwent a makeover and rebuild using new and exciting technologies. All with the intention to improve performance and user experience.
