A new way to stay in a city.

For many of us, travelling is a way to experience another lifestyle, another way of life.  And where you stay is nothing short of a deciding factor in your experience.  If the opportunity allows it, I love the concept of renting another person's home.  There are a few sites now that offer this service, and one I recently discovered One Fine Stay takes it one step further by offering you that little bit of extra service and luxury that you may expect from a hotel. 

One Fine Stay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights... Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.

Whether you’re staying with us for work, rest or play, you’ll get the fluffy towels, five star linens and fancy toiletries you’d expect from any hotel. And one thing you might not: an iPhone brim full of local knowledge, which you can also use to call us 24/7. It’s your first step to living like a local.

Awesome right? From what I can see, the site offers accommodation in four major cities at the moment: New York City, London, LA and Paris.

Avenue de Malakoff, Champs-Elysees - Paris.

Rue Lhomond, Latin Quarter - Paris.

There is an endless supply of stunning homes to live in. And with their essential iPhone travel guides available on arrival, you are ready and set to explore each city like a true local. Now that's the way to travel right?
