Discover how onefinestay select the finest villas

Wondering what makes a onefinestay villa? Deciding that a home is remarkable enough to become part of our portfolio is a process we’ve honed to perfection. We check everything from style to location and only those exceptionally well maintained homes make the cut. For a little more insight into exactly what we look for in a home, just read on.

It’s all in the detail

We’ve crafted an extra-thorough 215 point checklist that makes up a onefinestay home and villa. We spend over 2 hours reviewing each room carefully and inspect everything from the bedroom décor to the kitchen equipment, the water pressure to the WiFi speed. Only homes that meet our exacting quality standards, that is having a score of over 90% will make the cut – this is how we can be certain that every home we add to our portfolio is as remarkable as the last.

Looking for the wow factor

Whether it’s an art-lined loft in New York or a rustic villa in the South of France, every onefinestay home is a unique and striking space. This is because character is one of our must-haves, as is great style. All of our homes have ample storage space and come with a fully equipped kitchen, perfect for those family get togethers. It goes without saying that you and your nearest and dearest can enjoy an additional level of privacy when you book a home or villa with onefinestay.


The homes we choose aren’t just beautiful – they’re exceptionally situated too. They’ve chosen to make life as simple as possible for our guests. You’ll find all our homes and villas in the most charming and convenient neighbourhoods that you will enjoy exploring. We not only check views and outside spaces, but consider the wider area too, making sure that we’re in the know when it comes to things including safety, noise and local amenities.
