Recently, we made a discovery. A discovery that inspired us to no end. You could even say it changed our lives.
We discovered a new type of art. An art form as creative, inspiring and emotive as music, architecture or film.
You see, emerging from the depths of the sharing economy, is a new breed of host. The ones that have thought about every piece of furniture, colour scheme and choice of bedding; who carefully craft end-to-end experiences for their guests, and are passionate, creative and totally plugged into their city.
These hosts are not amateur flat sharers. Nor are they managers of dull apart hotels. They are artists.
Our goal is to shine a light on these artists. To show the world that the best of them are as talented and inspiring as a Michelin-starred chef or an accomplished composer.
Yes, our site takes bookings. But what we really do is give those hosts that are doing something truly amazing a “seal of approval". Hosts can use this quality mark on all their listings and all the sites they list on. For hosts, this gets them recognised wherever their guests like to find them. And for guests it is ideal, as we help them find the best, wherever they prefer to shop.
That is what The Plum Guide is all about. Kind of like the Michelin Guide of the sharing economy.
