Live Like a Local in London
*This is a guest post*
When visiting a city like London, there is only one way to truly experience it – like a local, not a tourist. Hotels can be sterile, expensive and bundled together in one location, creating a ‘cookie cutter’ experience and not allowing real immersion into the culture of a city. If you only have limited time, it can take days or weeks to get a feel for a place if you limit yourself to the tourist trail.
A company called onefinestay has created an exciting new venture, turning homes in London and new York into stunning short-term accommodation. For the discerning traveller with no time to waste, their extensive variety of properties will turn a weekend away or a business trip into a one-of-a-kind experience.
More and more, the travel industry is trending towards unique, bespoke short-term accommodations in fabulous neighbourhoods. onefinestay boasts London properties in Shoreditch, Primrose Hill, Kensington, Chelsea and more, ensuring a local London experience every time you book a room through their comprehensive website.
It’s as easy as booking as a hotel, only instead of booking a room, you’re gaining exclusive access to some of London’s most luxurious apartments and homes. Take this 3 bedroom home in Shoreditch, which is beautifully designed with exquisite furnishings (like an antique aluminium bath tub!), and located in one of the hippest neighbourhoods in London.
Family Travel Made Comfortable
Many of onefinestay’s clients are travelling families, who prefer to stay in a home rather than a hotel room. Imagine having a garden for the kids to play, as well as their own bedroom. Families need no longer fear travelling with their brood, with a wide range of spacious and child-friendly accommodation options available.
This 4 bedroom home with a garden in the leafy neighbourhood of Clapham, in London’s south is prefect for kids, being located close to the river and parks. It also boasts a backyard with lawn, and a cute Kid’s bedroom to ensure a good night’s sleep for all!
New York, New York
There’s also a wide range of equally beautiful properties available in the city that never sleeps, to ensure you are the exception to the rule. Although it may be difficult to leave the house with deluxe beds like these…
Imagine staying in a traditional brownstone and adopting a local coffee shop during your stay in New York! With properties from Tribeca to Brooklyn, onefinestay have the city covered, ensuring couples, families and singles have a pleasurable stay in some of the best neighbourhoods in the big apple.

5 Star Service
Guests also receive complimentary use of an iPhone during their stay, uploaded with various apps to ensure they can hit the ground running and know the best local spots to eat, drink and visit. onefinestay also have a team of attentive and on-the-ball staff to cater to your every whim and fancy. Booking a home away from home on onefinestay will ensure that for the cost of a hotel, you get more space in a better location with excellent service. Sounds like a fine idea to me…
