Home exchanges, worldwide

Live in London rent-free… was it too good to be true? “Yes, I would be interested in a home exchange… I have a two-bedroom apartment less than a mile east of Tower Bridge. The Tube station is opposite – one change gets you into central London easily within half an hour … it’s remarkably quiet for London.”

Welcome to the wonderful world of home exchange, where a smart London apartment – or a Sunshine Coast beach house – becomes your home-away-from-home for little more than the cost of getting there. And we’re not talking about taking in tenants, their valuables are as precious to them as our are to us. House-swapping is a two-way thing and that’s why it works wonders.
