Why let your home sit empty while you're away? With onefinestay, you can share your home safely and securely while you travel, not to mention earn a little extra scratch for souvenirs. onefinestay is a one-of-a-kind concept that adds extra securities and hotel services to sharing your home. This allows guests to experience the city like locals in some of New York's most distinctive and characterful homes, while hosts return to a clean home and a little extra income - without the hassle. And because demand is already huge for this fall and winter, now is an ideal time to sign up.

Unlike other companies, onefinestay screens all guests before they book, meets them on arrival, and checks in on them throughout their stay. Your personal items are stored safely (and put back in place before you return), and private spaces can be sealed off with tamper-evident tape. The company manages everything from marketing and insurance to cleaning and maintenance - they even take care of the linens.

onefinestay works with over 500 distinctive properties in the city. Find out if yours could be next here.
