Interview with Camilla Shaughnessy- #travel
Camilla Shaughnessy is the founder of EventfulStays.com , a UK accommodation website which specialises in mid- to high-end home stays available for short term lets searchable by event. Camilla enjoyed the echelons of senior positions in corporate life before establishing her own consultancy firm in 1994. She went on to launch Eventful Stays in December 2010, inspired by renting out her Oxfordshire home to help generate additional income after the market crash in early 2010 when she and her husband lost their savings. While investigating ways in which to rent out her home which features a pool house, helipad and gym Camilla realised that, whilst there are numerous holiday rental companies, none specialise in major event-focused breaks or indeed personal events such as special birthdays, wedding anniversaries and hen weekends – and so Eventful Stays was born.
