We have a new member, Jude, who signed up on Monday and who has a charming place in Marrickville, Sydney. If you don’t know Sydney, Marrickville is only a few minutes out from the city centre and, as Jude says is “multi-cultural, multi-generational area with friendly, open-minded, open-hearted neighbours”. The area is full of restaurants with all sorts of cuisines and public transport is excellent. There are two bedrooms available but they will do their best to accommodate more than 4 if you have a larger family (see the listing) and is large by inner Sydney standards. The space includes: A double bedroom upstairs and a children's bedroom downstairs with a single bed, two singles or a bunk, depending on your preference. Lounge room with TV, large kitchen/dining/sitting room. Fully equi...Read more

Today's Feature Listing is in one of our more unusual locations: Kenya, but in a truly stunning location on the edge of the Indian Ocean. https://peoplelikeus.world/properties/410 "Takaungu" is a "smidge of heaven", as described by owner and member, Philip. It's a single story, three bedroom, self contained home, fully equipped and staffed. The listing is a little light on information and photos but the main photo is amazing.
I've spoken about http://sharetraveler.com/ before. It's run by a nice lady named Dawn who has invested a LOT of time over years to provide information to people like us who enjoy the sharing economy. It's an amazing resource, full of original research and information. Dawn posted earlier in the week that she's going to do a redesign of her site: "It’s time to start thinking about revamping my website. It’s been a few years since the last re-design. And inevitably the content becomes less organized and the usability less optimal." http://sharetraveler.co...Read more

This morning's feature listing comes to you from the west, near the city in Perth. Member Rheanna listed her home with us 2 weeks ago and, if you've thought before about going to Perth, you really need to take a look. https://peoplelikeus.world/properties/483 "Open plan living with combined or separate alfresco dining options overlooking plunge pool and city views. Large kitchen with adjacent ample preparation area. Five large bedrooms over two levels with three bathrooms including spa in main bathroom. Additional theatre on ground floor and study upstairs." Rheanna and her family are looking for a swap within Australia over the upcoming Christmas holiday.
Members logging in yesterday morning may have noticed a very small but significant change on the front page of our site: the addition of two flags in the navigation bar, French and English. We have many new French members and this will both help them and hopefully attract lots of new members in that wonderful country in which so many of us like to spend our holiday swaps! We have commenced our translation process into French and will roll it out progressively across the site. If you care to try, you'll see that the front page can be translated and about half of the property edit screens so far. More will be completed each day. French speakers, please message me (Read more
