"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."

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 all in the 8 months I've been Xchanging. I highly recommend it."

Guest - Melbourne
"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."
Harry and Ludwina
Hosts from Melbourne
Hosted four Guests
"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."
Guest from Richmond
"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."
Host from Glen Waverley
"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."
Guest from Canada
"I was going through a separation, finishing my PhD and had no job or accommodation lined up. I found The Room Xchange and moved in with my host family a week later.In just six weeks since, I’ve 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."
