"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."

Lonely and costly living on her own
10 Month Xchange
"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."

Your spare room is costing you money whether you rent or have a mortgage.
It’s a resource that already exists and has the power to change the way you live.
Simply by sharing it with one of our Guests, you can benefit in so many ways.
Get your weekends back
Stop spending your spare time doing the odd jobs or housework and start spending your time doing what you love to do. Like…have an afternoon nap, read a book or binge watch your favourite TV series. After all, weekends are for relaxing aren’t they?
Keep your family home
Just because your kids have flown the coup doesn't mean you have to downsize. You’ve worked hard for your family home and have built years of memories. Why not fill the house with a fresh perspective and an extra set of hands to help maintain your home.
Have more family time
It's tough juggling the kids, work and maintain your home. Not to mention the endless drop offs and pick ups. Get an extra set of hands and have the space to enjoy the time you have with your family. Or go to the gym, get your hair done; the possibilities are endless.
Tick off your wish list
Having an Xchanger means you can start doing the things you always wish you had time to do. You can start planning your adventures on the weekends, get your wish list ticked off and leave the worries of the world behind you.
If you're working long hours and have little time to maintain your personal life, get an in-house concierge who can take care of things for you. They can sort your to-do list, tidy your apartment, book your weekends away and cook a few healthy meals for you.
Help for your elderly parents
If you're sandwiched in-between caring for your elderly parents and your own family, use your parents spare room to get some help. A Guest can share meals, drive them to appointments, help with chores, cook some meals and keep them company.
Why not Xchange your room and share your food and become a Room Xchange Host? You’ll utilise that spare room that’s already costing you, get your weekends back and have more precious time with your loved ones. Is this you?
Don't downsize - share
Even though your children have grown and left, you're keeping your family home. However, it's a big job keeping the house clean and maintaining the garden. You just need an extra set of hands to keep it on track.
Working long hours
You're working very long hours, building your career and often come home to an empty, cold apartment with no food or company. It would be nice to have some company along with an extra set of hands to help you manage your personal life.
Elderly and need some support
The Sandwich generation are parents with elderly parents and young children. The dual responsibility and managing work is often too much. If your parents have a spare bedroom, help them find an Guest and get balance back in your life.
With the high cost of living, high mortgages, limited and affordable child care, it doesn't leave us with many options. Unless you have a spare bedroom. Use that room and get the affordable, in-house childcare you've been craving for.
