This is an American reality television show on Netflix that focuses on homes with unusual interiors. The show’s first season of 12 episodes was released on Netflix on July 20, 2018.
The show’s premise revolves around finding and showcasing homes that, despite their ordinary exterior appearance, have unique, custom interiors. The show often features homes that double as part-time museums, rooms where the owners do not actively live, such as basements, garages, a hockey fan cave, a bunker, and a backyard roller coaster.
Homeowners renting out rooms, or their entire abodes, to short-term renters is becoming an increasingly common alternative to vacationers staying at hotels. But the properties need to offer unique features or amenities for the property owners to maximize their earnings.
On “Stay Here,” designer Genevieve Gorder and real estate expert Peter Lorimer show property owners how they can turn their rentals into moneymaking showstoppers.
