The service that's been described as "the Airbnb of luxury homes" has launched in Sydney, with Melbourne, Noosa and New Zealand to follow soon.
A Victorian terrace in inner-city Potts Point, a sleek beach house in Bronte and an architectural family home in harbourside Mosman (pictured above) are among the Sydney holiday homes available as luxury private rental brand Onefinestay enters the Australian market.
The company, which is owned by AccorHotels, offers a curated selection of more than 10,000 luxury homes in over 200 destinations ranging from London, Paris and New York to Hawaii, Bali and rural Tuscany.
Concierge services and tailored experiences are available, and each property comes with thoughtful extras such as someone to greet you on arrival, hotel-quality linens and bathrooms stocked with toiletries.
Onefinestay's initial offering of 22 luxury homes in Sydney will soon be augmented by properties in Melbourne and Noosa, with New Zealand expected to follow in June.
Among the most eye-catching Sydney rentals available on the site is the South Coogee Castle, a five-bedroom house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Designed by award-winning architect Renato D'Ettorre, it's available from $4000 per night.
Not all of the properties are quite so pricey, though: there's also a Darlinghurst apartment with skyline views that costs from $270 per night.
