On your next trip to London, Paris, New York or Los Angeles wouldn’t it be marvellous to side step the hotels and stay in a characterful house instead? Pretend it was yours for a few days and live like a true local? You can, with onefinestay. Simon has previously contributed vibrant, evocative copy to help bring their homes to life.

Essentially onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in an unhotel – someone’s place while they’re out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights. See what they’d see and, if you like, do what they’d do.

You get all the advantages of a hotel, like the nice smelly stuff in small bottles. And with none of the downsides, like somebody bothering you at 8.53am to fold your toilet paper into a triangle.

They have sifted through some of the most decadent, elegant, quirky and surprising houses and apartments, and curated a collection of wonderful places to stay. Every single one is different. But they all offer the same delicious levels of comfort and character.

And if you become a onefinestay member, not only will you get to join possibly the world’s most exclusive and alluring club, but you’ll be in line for some serious discounts when shuttling across the pond.
