Airbnb makes deal with apartment owners

Lease restrictions often prevent people from renting out their apartment on Airbnb. Many apartment owners prohibit subletting of any kind.

Home Exchanges 2017 Year in Review

In total this year I attempted 11 house swaps, and ended up successfully completing 10. (You can read about the one failure with the Bali link below.)

What to do with home exchange listings if you’re moving

While the typical house swapper might be a bit more established in their life and lodging, many of us won’t stay in the same home forever. And once you’ve planned a move you need to figure out what to do with your home exchange listings. This isn’t as straightforward as I thought it would be.

Hosting a house swap guest for one night

I’ve managed to find a few home exchanges for one night stays. For instance, my recent stay in London. But I’ve never hosted someone for just one night. To get a one night home swap I think you have to be open to the possibility that your host might be home. Be prepared to stay […]
