High-end vacation rental service onefinestay is looking for new hosts and properties downtown. onefinestay allows visitors to “live like a local” while staying downtown, so the group is especially interested in properties that bear some unique character. They describe themselves as the “un-hotel,” which is a different approach than the rapid influx of other lodging alternatives seen in the neighborhood.

In addition to picking up some extra cash while on vacation (hosts in London and New York are already making tens of thousands of dollars a year,) hosts also get the added bonus of professional housekeeping and having the finer details of the process handled by onefinestay. It is a full service that includes meeting and greeting guests, insurance, marketing your home, and handling any issues that may arise during a guest stay. People have gotten married for fewer perks.

At the moment, the website offers homes all over Manhattan and Brooklyn with rates varying from $180-$1,500 per night. For example, visitors wishing to stay in the neighborhood can do so for $600 per night on Bond Street.

As for the guests, they get to enjoy the comfort and space of a home, but with all the benefits of a hotel. Each guest is greeted personally, ensuring they are introduced to the home—and neighborhood— they are staying in. onefinestay lends guests an iPhone packed with useful tips that hosts provide as well as additional information about the area.

Who knows? Hooking up with them could pay for your vacation(s). To discover how much you could be earning as a onefinestay host, click here.
