15 Jaw-Dropping Homes You Can Actually Stay in

Yes, these fifteen homes could be all yours (for a few nights, that is).


Here at Plum Guide, we search for the most spectacular homes in the world. Whether your thing is sweeping city views, fairytale-esque decors, or architectural wonders, we’ve got you covered.

The Glamper, Los Angeles

A gorgeous infinity pool, endless vistas of the rugged mountain terrain, and a laid-back feel and look that embodies the magnetic LA lifestyle, what more could you want? 

Mottisfont Hall, London

Mottisfont Hall isn’t your run of the mill London home, it’s actually more like a museum or a modern castle. It boasts not one or two, but eight grand living spaces – and let’s not forget about the sauna, cinema room, and orangery.

The House In The Hill, Sardinia

The House In The Hill, Sardinia, Italy
Costa Smeralda in Sardinia has the reputation for next-level luxury, and that plays out at this incredible home. So incredible in fact, it has featured in The Best Places To Stay On The Planet.

A Royal Affair, Copenhagen

A Royal Affair is your chance to live it up like a royal for a couple of days. Not only is it swanky, decadent, yet modern, it’s also right next to Amalienborg Palace, the home of the Danish queen.

Centre of the Universe, New York

We love a good view, and Centre of the Universe has plenty. Just take a look at the Manhattan skyline vistas from the bathtub, do we need to say more?

Las Cornisas, Barcelona

Emblematic of a different time and place, Las Cornisas is the kind of home that always amazes us with its grandeur, no matter how many times we look at it.

The Big Sleep, Berlin

Whether you’re perched at the bar, sweating in the sauna, or enjoying the views from the jacuzzi, The Big Sleep is the place you don’t want to leave, even when all of Berlin is right at your feet.

Paolina’s Chambers, Rome

It’s not every day you get a chance to stay in a genuine palace, but here it is. Paolina’s Chambers is in the Palazzo Borghese, the seat of one of the most storied families in Rome, with a history that includes popes, dukes, and even a Bonaparte.

The Moat, London

The Moat, Plum Guide home in London
Based in a glorious neo-Gothic building on the grounds of the Fulham Cemetery, and next to a pretty moat, this home has origins dating back to 1865. Walking into this home, you will truly feel like you’ve stepped foot in an interior design magazine.

The Mirrored House, Joshua Tree

The Mirrored House, Plum Guide home in Joshua Tree
The Mirrored House left us (almost) speechless. The walls are entirely made of glass, bringing the desert inside in a mesmerising, one-of-a-kind way. Rural, unspoiled, rugged, you’ll love the surroundings that are similar to what you find in the nearby national park, but here you have it all to yourself.

The Elevado, Los Angeles

Tucked away in the Hollywood Hills, The Elevado oozes casual glamour. Complete with a picture-perfect swimming pool, it’s your chance to live like the stars.

Technicolour Voyage, Copenhagen

It’s hard to put a home like this into words, it simply needs to be experienced. The host is a gallerist, so you’ll live among his personal collection of dynamic, interactive pieces of art.

The Big Splash, Tel Aviv

The Big Splash is pretty extraordinary. Firstly, you get a hammam to yourself. And best of all? The terrace, it’s bigger than the home itself – and it has a jacuzzi.

Choreography, London

Choreography, Plum Guide home in London
Choreography is the epitome of luxurious London living. Found in the heart of Knightsbridge, you’re moments away from Harrods and the museums of South Kensington. The home itself is by the same interior designer as Annabel’s, so expect lots of lavish textures, opulent materials, and swanky decorations.

Kipling’s Tales, Paris

A fairytale come to life, Kipling’s Tales has a certain fantastical quality to it. The area is peaceful, to the extent that a stay here feels like a royal’s retreat to a summer palace, and you can lose yourself exploring the magical rooms and the landscaped garden.
