onefinestay (www.onefinestay.com), the world’s first unhotel, today announced the appointment of Australian travel sales agency Masstige Moments. This partnership is the latest stage of the company’s campaign to roll out a worldwide sales organisation and build relationships with the global travel industry following the appointment of John Clarke as onefinestay’s first Head of Worldwide Sales in October 2012.
onefinestay is a novel innovation in upscale accommodation, redefining the experience of city travel. Guests live like a local in a distinctive private home while the owner is out of town, with all the comforts and conveniences of a hotel including 5* linens, towels and toiletries, a dedicated Guest Services team and even an iPhone for the duration of their stay. The concept has proven popular in both London and New York which positions the business well for further market expansion later in 2013.
Masstige Moments, a boutique sales agency specialising in premium travel products, has been appointed to raise awareness of this unique concept within the industry in Australia. Run by co-founders Margi Jansma and Juanita von Stieglitz, who between them have more than 50 years’ experience in the travel industry, Masstige Moments is tasked with strengthening onefinestay’s presence in this key international market by building relationships with travel agents and partners on behalf of onefinestay.
John Clarke says about the launch, “We’re excited to work with Masstige Moments in our continued bid to tell the world about onefinestay’s distinctive proposition. Margi and Juanita have a wealth of experience in the Australian travel industry, and they’ll be spreading the word about onefinestay on the ground in one of our most important markets.”
onefinestay (www.onefinestay.com) redefines the experience of city travel: live like a local by staying in a distinctive home while the owner is out of town, with a service which offers all the convenience and comfort of a hotel. Guests enjoy luxury amenities like 5* hotel linens and toiletries and every guest is also lent an iPhone for the duration of their stay which is stocked with local tips from the home’s owner, and from which they can make free local calls. Members benefit by earning an income from a house or flat which would otherwise stand vacant, without the risk or hassle associated with alternatives like holiday rental or short letting. Since its launch in 2010, onefinestay has signed up over a thousand members, and today manages an exclusive portfolio of over $2.5bn of beautiful upscale homes in London and New York.
