Live Like a Local

Did you buy your Powerball ticket? Well, I think London may be on my new bucket list for vacation houses.

I came across these amazing images, then realized these are actually like hotels on steroids, or as OneFineStay refers to them as "unhotels". I think I have spent countless hours going through these homes and haven't even seen 1/10th of them!

One Fine Stay 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, in other words, Live Like a Local! Currently, they offer these in NYC and London!

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 8am 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.


  1. A simply stunning post in love with all the rooms

  2. Nice! That third shot helps me envision how slate floors might look with our pale grey walls in the kitchen.

  3. It would be nice to stay in one of these homes. They all look cozy.... Wish they had room service!

  4. These are gorgeous! I bought 10 tickets and was actually thinking last night I would buy a house in London if I won lol

  5. ummm... INCREDIBLE! so much cozier than staying a hotel and these homes are gorgeous!

  6. Those homes are absolutely stunning! Thanks so much for the insight. I can see I will be spending far too much time drooling over those images.
    Thanks too for your kind comments on Barbara's blog- much appreciated!

  7. We did not win the lottery but I will still be dreaming about Princelet Street in Shoreditch for a while!

  8. Playing the lottery (and gambling!) stresses me out way too much. I can't help myself from fantasizing about what I would do though. Those homes are positively droolworthy!
