Host to Host is a private community for talented hosts to swap their places for vacation

 

I see you fellow host.
You are loved and celebrated by your guests. You are also tired and overworked after taking care of them. And let's face it, you can never fully relax as a guest at your rental - there's always something to do.

The truth is you love being a guest just as much as being a host.  After all, it was being a guest that inspired you to create your own.


Fortunately, there's another way for you to enjoy beautifully crafted hosted homes, just like yours.
Let's just say, your property has more to offer you than you realize. 

Let me show you how...

Traditional Travel/Swapping
Can Be...

OVERWHELMING

There are SO many rentals out there, you can easily find yourself endless scrolling for "the one" that's perfect for you and your family.

COSTLY

Average nightly rates for carefully curated places can be pricey. You can expect to pay thousands for a week getaway.

NERVE WRACKING

Leaving your beautiful place to a stranger without knowing their guest behaviour is stressful.

What Our Members Think

"After staying at our place, they only wanted to spoil us in return. It was so nice to be taken care of when we stayed at their gorgeous rental for just the cost of their cleaning fee".

Tarah, The Loft House Co

"Host To Host is perfect in the way it connects hosts with similar values." 

Christine, Alpenglow Cabin

The Story

As a busy host, I knew I was in need of a getaway to reconnect with what really love to do - experience iconic rentals.

After many hours of traditional searching and only finding places over of my budget, I reached out to a fellow host on Instagram. 


I offered our sweet little updated rental for a few nights in their treehouse, and they said YES! It was after this that I wondered if other hosts would be interested in the same exchange. This was the beginning of Host to Host.

 

Not only are we able to take dream vacations for much less, but we get to serve the best guests - fellow hosts!

Frequently asked questions

What if I'm not ready to swap?


You don't have to swap as soon as you join. Think of this as more of a planning app. You connect with hosts who are interested in swapping with you in the future, and you work out the details that fit around your schedule.




What if I don't want to trade with someone who offers?


First, you're under zero obligation to accept any offers made to you. That being said, it's very unlikely you will say no. We want you to be excited about who approaches you. We never wanted you to have an awkward conversation with someone who isn't up to standard asking if you would trade your beautifully crafted space for their pullout couch.

That's why we have created a carefully curated community.




Do we have to trade at the same time?


No - that's the beauty of it.

Unlike other home sharing platforms, you don't need to figure out when your schedules will synch up. Since you don't live at your vacation rental, you have the flexibiltiy of your schedule. You could swap during a quieter season or set time aside to swap in the future.




Who can join?


All applications are thoughtfully considered. We accept hosts who have intentionally designed boutique rentals.

Our members care for their rentals as if it were a work of art. Their creation represents their heart and soul. It is not just a place to sleep. It is a destination of its own making. Our members have a strong passion for vacation rentals; both hosting and guesting.




How do you make a swap?


Inside our platform, you are able to send private messages to our members to negotiate swaps.How you swap is up to you, meaning, we don't get involved with your swapping arrangements. This gives you ultimate flexibility for you and the host to create a swap that makes sense for you.

You can get creative here. Check out the How to Swap page on our website for more ideas.




Who is this not for?


This membership is not for the host who doesn't want to travel and experience epically designed homes.If you would rather not trade your availability for an amazing place to stay, and instead leave it all booked up, we might not be the best fit.




How many members are there?


​We have dozens of properties from around the world: USA, Canada, Bali, and Australia. Inside our community, you'll find an ever-evolving map of the properties that we have. We want to make sure every member reflects the standards of an iconic rental. This means we have a carefully curated community, instead of an overly saturated list of vacation rentals.




What is HostGPO?


HostGPO is a Group Purchasing Organization who have partnered with elevated brands you already know and love to negotiate HUGE savings for rental property owners. And we have partnered with them! Usually, you have to own three or more properties to get in on these amazing deals, but that qualification is not needed when you have a Host to Host Exclusive. This is a GAME CHANGER. You can maintain your rental for 50% off! Available in Canada and USA
