Plan your best vacation ever with this company that's helping people swap properties all around the world
At one point or another, we’ve all daydreamed about seamlessly slipping into someone else’s life and walking in their shoes, if only for a short period of time.
What it would be like to escape to a far away city in Europe and wake up in some grand countryside estate while you let someone else swap lives with you and experience your hustle and bustle lifestyle in Manhattan.
Turns out this daydream is more than just a fantasy (or a plot line in the Cameron Diaz classic ‘The Holiday’), thanks to the game-changing home rental site Love Home Swap.
The premise is pretty simple — a global home exchange program where members swap homes with one another for designated periods of time, granting them the ability to become locals in whichever city, town or country they choose to travel to.
The London-based company currently rents over 10,000 homes across 100 countries in every kind of location you could possibly imagine — from grand poolside villas in St. Lucia to central-city lofts in San Francisco.

If you’re having serious FOMO and want to get in on the action (and let’s face it, who wouldn’t) here’s how you can become a member of the Love Home Swap family.
You choose between one of three memberships (lite, standard and platinum) which all have varying benefits (for example, a standard membership will get you four free airport lounge passes while a platinum membership can get your home promoted in search results for maximum visibility and pay an annual fee.
Potential members are thoroughly vetted and if accepted, you’ll fill out a profile about your home, its features, prices and a valuable dates — think of it as an AirBnb or VRBO listing except instead of making cash, you’re swapping where you’re staying with someone else.
Members can choose whether or not they want to do a simultaneous exchange or space out their stays at different times, allowing for maximum flexibility in planning and utilizing the platform.
So whether you’re craving of a beach bound holiday or just want an out-of-the-box way to explore that city across the country that you’ve always imagined visiting, there’s no better way to do it than by fully immersing yourself in your long-held daydream and making it happen with a few clicks of your computer.
