What we offer

Finding people, just like you...

Home Around the World offers more than just home swaps. Our worldwide members discover imaginative and unique solutions to create perfect holidays in some of the world's most popular vacation spots. Whatever it is you are looking for, we'll help you find someone just like you.

Home Exchanges

Discover the key to staying for free

When you exchange homes on Home Around the World you always travel safe and secure in the knowledge that your home, your pets and plants are being cared for by another member, just like you.

Home Exchange

By simultaneously swapping your home with another member, you'll stay in comfort and enjoy being a tourist whilst living like a resident. Some members with second homes often find it easy to make non simultaneous swaps.

Hospitality Exchange

If you are new to home swapping and are hesitant about making your first direct swap, why not stay with another member first and then return their hospitality at a later, mutually convenient time?

Vacation Rentals & Hosts

Perfect places to stay for gay travellers and their friends

Be a vacation rental owner and promote your comfortable rural retreat or perfect city rental apartment rental to gay and gay friendly travellers. By offering our HATW guests a warm welcome you’ll be joining our HATW rentals that suit all tastes and pockets, from the simple and basic to the simply luxurious.

Be a host and rent out a spare room in your home. Whether you offer other home exchange members a full B&B service or simply a cosy bedroom and share of your kitchen you will find hosting, at times and with conditions that suit you is a great way to earn a few dollars whilst making friends with other HATW travellers. If you'd like to offer hosting, add the details into your home exchange listing.  

How do I start?

You are only 1, 2, 3 clicks away...

Your key to discovering some of the best gay homes around the world is quick and easy.

1 Create your Profile

Your Profile is your opportunity to tell our members all about you, your family composition and your holiday likes, preferences and what you are looking for. This is your opportunity to put yourself in the spotlight. Upload some personal or holiday images ... this is about YOU, not your home or property. That comes next. 

2 Add your property listing

Select your listing type - Home Exchange or Rental. Fill in the details, add some images, preview and publish your listing. You can upload an unlimited number of photographs, allowing you scope to show your home and area to the best advantage. Photos of your property are one of your strongest marketing tools and always encourage other members to contact you.

3 Contact, connect & agree

This is the fun part! Think of places you know and love and places you’d love to know, then browse our listings and contact our members. 

Through emails and phone calls you'll soon get to know your Home Around the World partner and you’ll soon forget that you started out as strangers. Once you feel secure knowing that your own home will be in the safe hands of another member, make whatever arrangements suit you best, grab a flight and enjoy your vacation! Just don’t forget to tell us all about it by leaving a review. All reviews earn the writer a free month's membership.
