    Who we are

    At Love Home Swap we’re on a mission to transform the way the world travels. With thousands of members worldwide, we connect like-minded home lovers with beautiful properties in a host of desirable locations.

    We’ve always been keen on the idea of home comforts. Following a disappointing holiday in a cramped Caribbean hotel room with two small children, we were determined to find a way to enjoy vacations without compromises - and Love Home Swap began. You’ll find everything you need, from spacious beach-side apartments and busy city bolt holes, to private country retreats and idyllic family villas. Our members have access to unique homes all over the world.

    It’s a super simple idea. Members choose a home they want to stay in, make the swap either directly with another owner or through a clever Swap Points system – and then enjoy amazing home from home holidays without the hefty bill of traditional travel accommodation.

    Love Home Swap was acquired by Wyndham Destinations, a US listed business, in 2017 but retains its start-up mentality and ethos.

    We believe travel transforms you. It makes you happier. It makes you healthier. It gives you new things to think about. It gives you new things to talk about. It makes you more interesting. It colours your life with new sights and sounds and fills your head with new ideas. It sparks new friendships. It generates memories that will last as long as you do. It takes the ‘you’ you know into different contexts and bathes it in a new and wonderful light.

    We’re a group of travel-loving and home-loving enthusiasts who are on a mission to maximise the benefits of travel by transforming travel itself. We’re bringing new thinking that will turn the old way to travel on its head by helping you transform time in your home into unique, unrepeatable worldwide travel experiences.
    We’re dropping the key to a whole new world of travel right in your pocket. It’s a staggeringly simple idea that has epic scale and endless possibilities.

    Our home swap travel experiences are already being enjoyed by thousands of people worldwide. We’re packing all our energy and passion into this vision and won’t rest until home swap travel experiences become the norm.
