about home made stays

Founded in 2013, HMS concept began from a couple of close friends sharing each other’s accommodations for their holiday needs and from that, our initial idea and services has begun.

Following our early success, more and more friends wanted to join  us on their holiday adventures and to offer their own properties to stay at respectively.

Our objective on our holiday itinerary was, and still is; to experience beautiful and unique accommodations in very interesting, sometimes in quite remote areas without breaking the budget.

Our goal is to only showcase properties on HMS that the founders themselves would choose to stay at. The properties on offer on HMS  are chosen after careful and thorough scrutiny, while our ethos is all about quality – not quantity!


We would be very happy to answer any of your queries, whether it is listing or booking related. Home Made Stays is extremely attentive to all your holiday needs from organizing transfers, advice on places to see and things to do! We look forward to welcoming you soon!

  • “An absolutely stunning property in a gorgeous location! Within easy walking distance to Bangalow and short drive into Byron. Casa Bamboo had everything we could have asked for in a holiday house and comfortably fit 8 adults. Justin was incredibly helpful and attentive throughout our stay. Even in rainy weather this house is still relaxing, but in the sunshine it is just magic. We will definitely be back!”

  • “The flat was spotless, rooms and facilities very clean, well maintained and had every convenience we needed to make it a most comfortable, relaxing and adventurous, fun stay - including the use of the property’s pushbikes to wonder about. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful with all of our enquiries and gave us great suggestions of places to eat and explore. We will definitely be booking another stay at this gem of a place in Sicily!”

  • “I can highly recommend this fantastic place for a great summer holiday. This freshly renovated and fitted house itself is located in a cute, historic village of Riposto - walking distance away from the Mediterranean Sea. Its convenient location enabled us to explore the surrounding areas such as the famous towns of Taormina, Catania and other local villages, as well as some amazing sights unique to Sicily and the island’s history!”

  • “We are a party of 6 and enjoyed our stay at Casa Marco Polo. The house was clean modern and very comfortable especially the beds, which can be an issue in Italy as they can be hard. No daggy Italian furniture here! The 2 bathrooms both with showers and one with a bath made it convenient. Love Sicily and will definitely come back! This property is the best we have stayed at on Airbnb. Looking forward to our next adventure.”

  • “Michael was extremely helpful and was always available to contact if we needed him. The apartment was beautiful, even better than the pics. Everything was provided and was a perfect place to stay in St Kilda for the weekend, close to local bars and shops, but still on a quiet and peaceful road. I will definitely be recommending the apartment to friends and family and would love to stay there next time I am in Melbourne.”
