What people say

"Half of our property is listed on Airbnb which has created a lot of additional work for us and were finding it hard to manage it. Having an Xchanger here helped us to prepare our Airbnb space which enabled us to better manage our property. It's also a great way to use resources, meet new people, try new things and open up a new world of friends and family."

8 Month Xchange

"As an ex-housesitter, it is glorious to have a permanent spot, not moving every week and I've achieved more in my business in one month than I had in the previous six months put together. I finished my book; released and launched it all in the 8 months I've been Xchanging. The best thing is, I had a place to call home. I highly recommend it."

Tracey Hunt - Author and Business Owner

Tired of house-sitting

8 Month Xchange

"We both work from home, in a rather large house that takes a lot to maintain and little time to maintain it. Instead of downsizing, we'd prefer to share so Xchanging suits us. We're able to share what we have, get the help we need and at the same time, we get to learn more about people from other cultures and lifestyles. The support is amazing and we get to help someone at the same time."

"Being a guest is a wonderful way to share your life and passions with other people. Whether you can speak another language, are a secret home Master Chef or just love connecting with like-minded people, it is a great opportunity to expand, share and learn from those around us. Plus, with the high cost of living and housing, The Room Xchange is offering a way to live better and smarter."

"If you've got a spare bedroom and you need some extra help around the house, then The Room Xchange is a great solution. It's so wonderful to come home from work every night to a tidy house. It also gives young people a way of having some independence without the high cost attached to it. If you've got a spare room, I'd recommend giving it a go."

6 Month Xchange

"You get to make lifelong friends and create a second family. They're there to take care of you and you're there to take care of them. I've got a second set of parents. They were really kind to me and literally transformed me in ways I never expected. It's a very special bond and an extraordinary experience that everyone should have."

Guilllaume - International Traveller from Canada

Backpacker needed to save money

18 Month Xchange

"I was going through a separation, finishing my PhD and I had no job or accommodation. I found The Room Xchange and moved in with my host a week later. In the 8 months I was Xchanging I finished my PhD and gained a part-time job in my host’s business. I've recovered from a difficult situation, saved myself a lot of financial grief and the best thing is, I feel like I’m part of their family."
