Now in Los Angeles, New York, London and Paris, onefinestay is similar to Airbnb and allows travelers to book time in other people’s homes but branches out in a fantastically posh direction. The site offers luxury listings, hotel-like amenities (including luxury toiletries and a maid service, if desired) as well as 24/7 phone and in-person service from their “unhotel” staff. Onefinestay claims to have “sifted through some of the most decadent, elegant, quirky and surprising houses and apartments, and curated a collection of wonderful places to stay.” Prices can range from around $230/night for a smaller Santa Monica 1 bd apt, all the way up to a cool $2,159 for a five bedroom, 8 bath paradise in the Venice Canals. Check out the links below for information on their site and also HuffPo’s write-up of their fun, high-style apartment publication called Guestbook which contains fabulous apartment photos and profiles of the even more fabulous folks who own them.
