Welcome to 
Host to Host

A place for short term accommodation owners to
feel inspired, valued and supported.


Host to Host is a full service community that can help guide you through the initial set up of your rental, elevate your current offering, and provide a host to host swap service for the upper echelon of short term stays.

There is no other platform that offers this level of immersive experience for hosts. We provide a comfortable place for hosts to facilitate connection by creating an environment that allows for the
same level of respite they want for
their guests.

Our community allows owners to share their wins, their problems and be inspired by their peers doing great things across the world and in their backyard.

Hi, I'm Sam

Host to Host started when I was in need of a break myself. After managing multiple five star rental properties, over the course of a very busy summer, I was burning out. Don't get me wrong, I love to host, but I also love to be a charmed guest. I knew I was in need of connection with others and a break! 

One night, 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 knew 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 reap the rewards of the hard work we've put in by trading with others who care as deeply as we do. AND we get to host the best guests - fellow hosts - in return! This really is the best mutual exchange. 


Host to Host has evolved to so much more by now offering a course and a larger inclusive community for all who are curious about the curated vacation rental world. 


You are what makes this space beautiful. Thank you for joining us.
