What is it like to become a onefinestay member? It’s a question we often get asked, and one we love to answer. Aside from the financial benefits of renting your home out to guests while you are out of town, our members get to experience the onefinestay community – and the additional benefits that brings. Read about what it’s like to be a onefinestay member.
In a recent interview with MyDomaine, Evan Frank, onefinestay co-founder and Vice President, Americas, spoke about one of our members and their passion for their home and neighbourhood, “They travel fairly regularly for both leisure and work but love coming back to their home, which they’ve worked on over the years to really make it their own. It’s a labour of love, as they call it, and they are so happy to be sharing it.”
Our homes come in all shapes and sizes – from Brooklyn brownstones to Notting Hill mews houses – we love them all and all for different reasons, and they are all exclusively available at onefinestay. When we evaluate a home, we judge it on charm, character, location and of course whether it’ll meet our guests’ high standards. The most important question we ask ourselves is, “would a guest love to stay here?”.
Once our members have joined, all they have to do is ensure that their home’s availability is kept up to date. We manage all enquiries and bookings, from the start of a guest’s research right up until the end of a stay. We prepare everything for the guest’s arrival, including cleaning, putting things away, making the beds, and stocking the bathrooms with our towels and toiletries. And we’re on call 24/7. After the guest leaves, our team returns everything to its rightful place and cleans the home again.
There are a number of perks and benefits of becoming a onefinestay member. We hold local events in each of our cities, so from art exhibitions to dinners to cooking classes, members really join the onefinestay community. In some cases, our services are tailored to local needs, like in New York, where we’ve just launched a new service for townhouses. We know that taking care of a multi-storey townhouse can be hard work, so townhouse owners have a personal home manager and bespoke maintenance services to help with whatever they (or their homes) need.
Our members love the unique hospitality service we provide for our guests, so much so that a lot of them want to try it for themselves, taking advantage of the unique 30% discount for stays in onefinestay homes.
