"It's a great way to use resources, meet new people, try new things and open up a new world of friends and family. It helped us to better manage our Airbnb rental."
"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 all in the 8 months I've been Xchanging. I highly recommend it."
"We don't do housework anymore. My wife and I spend our evenings relaxing and weekends doing what we want to do instead of the dreaded housework. Maintaining our family home became a chore once the kids left, but no more."
"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 room and you need extra help, then it's a great solution because you come home from work every night to a spotless house. It also gives young people a way of having some independence. If you've got a spare room, give it a go."
"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."
I was going through a separation from my partner and I needed a soft place to land. At the same time, I was finishing up my PhD in astrophysics, my scholarship was running out and I didn’t have a job lined up. I needed somewhere affordable to live so I searched on Google and found The Room Xchange. I knew it was exactly what I needed. I moved in with the Dautovic family a week later, and they made me feel welcome right away. In the six weeks since I became a Guest with The Room Xchange, I’ve finished my PhD, gained a part time job with my Host’s business, they introduced me to a publisher in Europe who has since asked me to be a contributing writer for their digital magazine, recovered from an emotionally difficult situation and saved myself a lot of financial grief. And the best thing is, I feel like I’m part of their family.
