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 The 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.

Everest, Paris

Everest has too many highlights to count: an indoor pool, gym, massive rooftop terrace, library-like book collection, eye-catching art. It’s a true cabinet of curiosities.

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.

Upside Down, London

We’re big fans of industrial-style homes, and Upside Down is just that. Located in what used to be a dairy-barn, it inspires creativity with all of its art, an abundance of original features, and a staircase that’s out of the ordinary.

Noho Art Gallery, New York

MoMa is great, everyone knows that, but the crowds can be a pain. That’s where this home comes in. It’s a gallery in itself, just one that’s completely at your disposal. Thankfully, you’ll no longer have to crane your neck to see around the selfie-taking masses.

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.

The Talisman, London

A stand-out in our London collection, The Talisman packs plenty of unique, eye-catching features. Keep an eye out for the sheep. 

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.
