Staying in a Luxury London Townhouse with OneFineStay

Staying in a Luxury London Townhouse with OneFineStay


Let’s face it, there are so many choices when it comes to booking accommodation for your hard-earned holidays. From hotels to apartments, villas, bed and breakfasts’ and everything in between, it can get quite overwhelming. And since the pandemic, people want the comforts of home now more than ever during their travels which is why I turned to OneFineStay on my recent trip to London. 

Any luxury and family travelers out there will be smart to consider OneFineStay for their next trip. They offer the finest homes and villas around the world in the most desirable neighborhoods, all while delivering a one-of-a-kind service to guests that is both personal and professional. They were established in London over 10 years ago now, and have since expanded their collection of curated homes, villas, and chalets throughout the world. 

You can be sure that each property listed on their website has been curated and inspected by their expert team. OneFineStay works directly with homeowners to ensure that everyone is getting the best service and care. They have support available around the clock before and during your stay, plus someone will meet you in person to show you around your home-away-from-home to ensure that you understand and feel comfortable in your new surroundings. 

We actually arrived early in London and although they were still finishing up cleaning our gorgeous 2 bedroom, 2 bath townhouse in central South Kensington, they arranged for us to drop our bags off and still use the facilities while they finished up. I particularly loved the welcome treats waiting for us, which included delicious snacks and teas, but I noticed that everything was made locally since OneFineStay strives to support small businesses in the area. These thoughtful touches are always appreciated. If you wanted groceries or the basics waiting for you in terms of food (especially if you were enjoying a longer stay), then there are several different types of services you can arrange with OneFineStay to be sure that your stay is as comfortable and convenient as possible. This is more than just a vacation booking website, their concierge services go above and beyond.

Speaking of these services, you can have OneFineStay help you as much or as little as you want regarding details beyond your accommodation. Consider using their expertise to find you the best restaurants to eat at, or even hire a private chef for a special occasion. They can also arrange car services, childcare, spa bookings and so much more. 

Our townhouse in London was on the most charming and quiet street in the chic South Kensington neighborhood. This is the absolute perfect location to be while visiting London, especially if you want to visit all the best museums and parks which are nearby. My favorite sights like the Victoria & Albert Museum, Kensington Palace, and Holland Park were all so close. But no matter where you book with OneFineStay, they are ALWAYS in the best locations – that is a guarantee. 

For those interested in booking our specific townhouse, Donne Place, it has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, outdoor space which included a side yard as well as a rooftop terrace! So if you go in the warmer months, this is such a treat. The living room, kitchen, and dining room were so spacious as well and had an amazing flow. While this is a historic townhouse, everything is updated with all the technological amenities you’d need as well as a modern kitchen. 

Having so much space is such a treat, but especially for people traveling in bigger groups or with kids. Also, you just feel so much more relaxed in a home setting. In fact, several people use OneFineStay properties as transitional accommodation while they’re waiting for home renovations to be finished or if you simply want to test out a neighborhood that you’re considering moving to. 

So whether it’s for business or pleasure, OneFineStay is also offering monthly rentals now in London, Los Angeles, and New York City (coming soon). And depending on the length of your stay, you can save 10-25% per month. 

I always know I’m taken care of when I book with OneFineStay, and that each home has been personally inspected before even being allowed to be listed on their website. You can always expect comfort, luxury, personal touches, and incredible service. So if you desire all the comforts of home but in exciting and exotic locations with that five-star element, then OneFineStay is definitely for you!
