Recently booked on Plum Guide

Hand-selected by our critics

Perfected by humans, not algorithms

The internet is awash with millions of short-term rentals, and millions of opinions, and yet no one seems to really know what they are booking. We’re here to change that. So thank you internet for the quantity, but it’s high time we turn the corner to quality.
