we're on a mission
to meaningfully improve people's lives

Lyvly is built and run by Londoners based in King’s Cross, working to create a better renting experience for young professionals all across London.

We believe people deserve to live in a space they love where they can make meaningful connections. More than ever, this is the time to make life at home a truly amazing experience.

it all began 5 years ago...

We decided to start Lyvly after seeing first hand how incredibly lucky you need to be to find a home with housemates you actually like.

‍We wanted to create an environment where people could easily get together and connect, and we knew that the best place to do it was at home.

Fast forward 5 years, and over 1000 members later, we’ve collected a fantastic set of stories and fundamentally changed the way people live in London.

‍We’ve seen our members become best friends, find new partners and get new jobs. Last year, some even travelled to their housemate’s wedding in South Africa!

We’re now working hard to bring the Lyvly experience to thousands more, not just in the UK but also all across the world.

See you soon,
Phil, co-founder
