Like the idea of Airbnb but want the creature comforts of a hotel? You might want to look to Onefinestay, which recently raised $40 million. The company rents luxury homes in London, New York, Paris, and Los Angeles, but adds some extra touches that Airbnb doesn’t offer. Onefinestay has a staff to clean homes before and after stays and provides guests with linens, towels, and toiletries. Compared to how Airbnb screens its hosts, Onefinestay is stricter, rejecting the vast majority of people who apply to use the service. All this comes at a price. We found 10 places that would cost over $1,000 a night to rent out this weekend. Some of these places could house a party, but others only have a few bedrooms. If you think you can pass the vetting process and have a few grand laying around, you can see how the other half lives … for a couple nights, at least.
- 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
- $1,285 per night
Not far from the Jardin du Luxembourg, this apartment can serve as the home base for your Paris adventure. It has six rooms and sleeps five guests, but you’ll have to flip for who gets the single beds. Owned by art collectors, the apartment is home to some interesting work, including unusual statues of Mickey Mouse and Batman.
- 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms
- $1,887 per night
Go big or go (to your own) home: Pack in 15 of your favorite people, and this place starts to look affordable. Give your least favorites the trundle bed. There are seven bathrooms, too. For those who aren’t afraid of heights, the little “studio” has a loft bed and kitchenette. Whoever’s lucky enough snag that better sleep avec un œil ouvert.
- 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms
- $1,197 per night
Just don’t call it a garden apartment: This home has five floors and patio doors that lead to a lawn. With room for nine people, the apartment’s only bedroom with a single bed is the one in the attic. Let’s just hope that zebra skin rug is fake.
- 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms
- $2,293 per night
By far the most expensive place on this list (which can be shared by up to eight people), this Chelsea apartment has several rooms with views of the Thames River. There are three floors, including a basement that houses the au pair’s quarters. There are also Babar pictures in one of the bathrooms, which is always a bonus.
- 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
- $1,364 per night
You can fit seven people in here, but with only two bathrooms, that could lead to unluxuriously long waits. And whoever sleeps in the kid’s room will have to fight for the top bunk; it’s only fair that the loser get to play with the awesome toy castle first. If you can’t get enough of Paris landmarks, you’ll be glad to see how close you are to the Eiffel Tower.
