Traveling these days is about experiencing a new place like the locals do. Nobody wants to walk around with big fold-out maps feeling lost or fight one’s way through hordes of people just to gawk at the same old tourist sights. Now there’s a way for you to live and wander through your next city like a local. Enter the ‘unhotel’.

Onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in the homes of people who live in the city and are out of town for the duration of your visit. It’s like Airbnb, except the service is actually run like a hotel, so you still get the luxuries and ease of staying in one. The booking process is easy. On their website, you get to select your dates, choose the homes you want, and make the payment online. They also have different folios based on your needs, whether you are traveling with a family or for work, or if you’re just looking for an extravagant travel experience (look in the “Prestige” folio).

The service promises homes full of character, quirks, and decadence, without sacrificing your level of comfort. Every home is given a thorough cleaning before and after your stay, beds made and bathrooms stocked with high quality linen and fancy toiletries, just like a hotel. You also have the option of a maid service. The homes come with personalized recommendations from the people who live in them – where to eat, what to do, sightseeing spots, and more.
