Our Private client Services delivered by your Citrus Private Client Relocation team:
Serviced Accommodation are a great alternative to hotels or AirBnB and let you stay at the location of your choice, secure and safe, while enjoying high quality self-catering accommodation. A serviced apartment allows you greater privacy and comfort and allows you to relax and become acclimatised to living in London or the UK. The prices vary from location and quality from a good executive standard to opulent penthouse accommodation and provides excellent value for money and more space when compared with similar specification hotels.
The number of UK serviced apartments in London and the UK continues to grow rapidly, with more and more cities and towns having temporary serviced apartments as an alternative to traditional hotels. We demand a certain level of quality and facilities for our clients and many of our properties are pet friendly, have cable or satellite television, fast broadband and housekeeping services. Many of our Serviced Accommodation properties are suitable for quarantine purposes.
Before we begin a rental search we highly recommend an orientation tour as it’s a great way for you to look and see different locations and view sample quality properties within your budget and agreed criteria. Our clients often change their criteria once they view sample areas and properties.
We then use this feedback to fine tune your property viewing days. In addition, if you have children, we can include visits to suitable schools too. For many of our clients this is a fantastic introduction to London or the UK. It also means you have a better idea of where to choose to live before committing to an area. You will be taken around by our Citrus Relocation local agent who knows the area and will give you great advice on property, leisure, parks and healthcare facilities
