A few years ago Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet starred in a mostly forgettable rom-com called The Holiday. Poor loves, one from the USA and one England, were both having a terribly, pathetic time with the men they loved. Yet what was memorable was what they did to get a new lease on their lives. They swapped homes.
They found their life-changing home swap on a website and on Love Swap Home you might do the same.
Love Swap Home allows you to swap or rent stylish homes in over 150 countries. It’s easy to become a member: list your home and start contacting other homeowners whose home you’d love to stay in. They’ll also list their dream swap dates and dream location, and if you find a match after reading previous guest’s comments, jump on Skype to finalize the swap.
You could stay in the swanky one-bedroom Manhattan high rise looking out over the Hudson River or the laid back beach-side home on the island of Crete. We can’t promise that Jude Law or Jack Black will show up with the house you choose, and to be honest, we’re not sure why you’d want them either, but with potential savings of up to $3,000 per holiday we’ll happily take the chance.
Swapping houses sounds like a blast. Which homes would you like to swap with?
