• Tracey

    We have been registered with People like us Home exchange for just over a month and already have organised our first successful exchange. Looking forward to seeing the world from the comfort of a new friend's home.

  • Cathy

    This is a fabulous site to find for someone who loves to travel, can show trust and hospitality, and who wants their travel to be about more than seeing things through a tourist’s eyes. The concept is simple, but the details can be complex, and the site has been constructed to ease members through the process of identifying potential swaps, negotiating how and when it might happen, and planning ahead on the practicalities. Better still, the site owner has built a community of interesting and interested people, welcoming sharing of ideas - and later - the experiences gained through home exchanging. I’m very happy to have found this site - and this group of people - and hope to have years of swapping ahead.

  • Kristin

    I believe that People Like Us is by far the best home exchange platform out there. The PLU members are the friendliest and most welcoming group of exchangers and the founder, Drew, has done an excellent job of creating an outstanding website and giving life to this beautiful world-wide community of people like us!!

  • Nadine

    A new platform quickly expending, friendly people, a very active director.

  • Jeanne

    We definitely prefer the PLU platform to the other platform we have used in the past, and it is wonderful that Drew is so accessible to help with questions! We are glad to be involved! We have hosted one PLU family and have stayed at the homes of 3 PLU families and have had great success! The people involved with this website really care!

  • Judith and Tim

    While we are experienced home exchangers, this is our first exchange finalized on the People Like Us platform. We have been members for about two years and love both the website and the community behind it. The website is intuitive to use and offers all of the facts and photos you need to make an informed decision. This community is made up of kind and welcoming people who are serious about home exchanging and willing to put their own properties out there. The site owner solicits feedback from members before making any major changes that would have an impact on the community. We love exchanging here, and it is the only site on which we feel enough trust and confidence to exchange.

  • Jakob

    Meget venligt og velfungerende system. -- Very friendly and well-functioning system.

  • Melinda

    Great service and community

  • Eva

    I’m new to the platform but I’ve only had positive experiences so far while communicating with people and exploring the website.

  • Kit

    I had a first experience of home exchange with People like us... and it was a great experience and will continue usage . Easy communications, easy to search for homes and participants very warm, quick to response . Our host had local transport maps arranged for us The home was exactly as posted in the website. Our exchange home was a Croatian home in Zagreb, we stayed almost 2 weeks and a great cultural experience staying in Zagreb and went walking round the city to experience local culture and atmosphere Our host even helped is with a tour contact to go sightseeing in Plitvitz Lakes Highly recommended to use People like us services, ethical,effective communications, empathy, courtesy with homes established in many countries We are already looking forward to our next exchange! 😊

  • Samual

    This is our favourite home exchange site. We have been a member of 5 other sites over time but PLU is the site we refer people to when they ask us about home exchanging.

  • Jose

    Yay first exchange ! I just organised my first exchange with PLU and it couldn’t have been easier. Started the process yesterday and all confirmed today!!

  • Janine Ruth

    I just schedule my first exchange and found it a very easy process.

  • Linda

    I've been a member of People Like Us for about 10 months and have organised 3 exchanges so far. I have been on other exchange sites and the "vibe" at PLU is something special. Everyone is so friendly, helpful and happy! The comments on the facebook group are supportive and helpful. You really feel the sense of community and trust, which is needed when exchanging homes. The best thing is that the "owner" of the site is very responsive to ideas, so if you have an idea of a feature, filter, etc that you would like, you just ask and he gets it done asap. (this is a huge change from my previous site where they were totally unresponsive). If you are thinking about starting home exchange come and check out PLU.

  • Sacha

    Great platform to organize home exchanges. Has all the need to have featueres and more and is very easy to use. The owner/developer is very client friendly, responsive and helpful.

  • Laurence

    Site qui porte très bien son nom... basé sur le respect et la confiance. Je ne peux que recommander car c'est le site de mon premier merveilleux échange. Merci à Drew pour le temps qu'il passe afin de toujours améliorer ce site.

  • Lisa

    The best home exchange site out there.

  • Ali

    PLU is a great home exchange site with opportunities to make friends across the world. We are from the UK and have completed an exchange with New Zealand and have had a family from Italy stay in our home. During covid, we have taken the opportunity to travel within the UK and have done, and are planning some great, more local swaps. Our experiences so far have been extremely positive. I would recommend PLU to anyone interested in travel. Not only is it a great way to travel sustainably and with less costs, it is an enjoyable way to connect with others from around the world. During covid, the PLU facebook page has come into it's own and i have treasured the connection with others. Through it i've seen pictures of wonderful places, learnt about culture, enjoyed learning about different foods etc. We have even had the opportunity to do zoom calls, one of which was a Spanish lesson! Please come and join us :)

  • Sheena

    A simple and friendly way to organise a home exchange.

  • Catherine and Eric

    Amazingly well run website, fantastic feedback and help from the moderator(s) super friendly community! Only positive things to say!

  • Mark and Carrie

    Love, love, love this site and all the people on it! We have our first exchange planned in a couple months, and I look forward to many more!

  • Bill & Sophie

    A great new site! We have been with PLU since it started and they really consult members and respond to their needs. Many people were very disappointed when an existing, large Home Exchange company changed out of all recognition and PLU has developed the sense of mutuality and delight that we all missed.

  • Elena

    Hay un gran espíritu de intercambio entre los miembros. Mucha amabilidad y cordialidad. Y Drew es genial. -- There is a great spirit of exchange among the members. Much kindness and cordiality. And Drew is great.

  • Susan

    People Like Us has an amazingly friendly and supportive Facebook Group and a great website to find and plan exchanges. The owner Drew is proactive with suggestions and changes, quick and timely with responses. “Tinkering round the edges” is ongoing, for the benefit of website efficiency and client satisfaction and ease of use of the system. Feedback is actively encouraged and frequently acted on, later if not straight away.

  • Ginger

    Kindest community in the world! Excited to be a part of such a great group.

  • Joy and Andrew

    Fabulous site. Currently growing but with a large number of homes that makes it worthwhile joining now. I love the friendly vibe and really like that it has an active FB group that delivers some accountability and a real community vibe! Sign up! You won't regret it!

  • Laura

    I’m not sure how PLU popped into my life but I have enjoyed feeling like I have been a part of it. Now that my usual study abroad class has been cancelled for this summer, I’m willing to take a chance on PLU because I feel like I’ve gotten to know Drew through his posts and that I can trust a site he has created and maintained. I’m not a member of any other home swap organization. Fingers crossed!

  • Annemette

    We’ve homeexchanged since 2004 and of all the homeexchange websites we have used PLU is be far the best! Fantastic customer service and the most friendly, positive and supportive community. Drew, who runs PLU, listens to all suggestions from members, answers all queries immediately, and consults all members before making changes to the website. PLU may not have as many listings yet as some of the big homeexchange sites (claim to have), but we’ve found it far easier to find exchanges here because people are more active and committed. Highly recommend!

  • Padraig

    I've been swapping homes for quite a few years now and it has become for me the only way to travel (I've done over 40 to date). The financial advantages are obvious but there are so many other reasons why it really is the best way to experience another country, another city, another culture. Staying in someone's home, in their community, is a very enriching experience. I can honestly say the 'community' which People Like Us has gathered is a friendly, honest and trustworthy one. I find the members to be like-minded people who just want to share their homes in return for a stay in mine. It's a simple, easy, win-win exchange.

  • Klaas

    We -experienced exchangers- joined People Like Us earlier this year and we have not regretted that step for one second. It really is the best exchange site on this planet. It’s members are kind, friendly, passionate, hospitable and always ready to step in with suggestions, help and advice. Drew Seitam, the owner and founder, really listens to the members and is creating a platform that everybody is comfortable with. He does a marvelous job. I more than strongly recommend joining PLU and start the art of exchanging.

  • Lora

    Awesome community, awesome homes! I can't wait to see how it will grow in the future. I have done 3 exchanges via People like us so far and they have been great and very positive experiences. Keep up the good work!

  • Jessie

    Very professional, easy-to-use and handy tool. Beautiful lay-out!

  • Pete

    PLU is an incredibly well put together website and FB Page which delivers Responses to queries are super fast, friendly and non corporate I'm happy to recommend PLU to anyone who will listen! :)

  • Kiley

    It has been great being a part of this community from the very beginning. I appreciate that Drew is trying to make this an amazing community of friends who respect and care for one another. He is the most responsive "customer service representative" you will ever come in contact with. PLU is his baby and he is doing a magnificent job of raising it well!!!

  • Sally

    I am on at least 4 home exchange sites and People Like Us is the best! Friendly, communicative, with a great choice of homes in many countries and areally excellent personal service from Drew and his team. The swap system is simple and the response time if you need help and advice is very quick! Well done PLUkeep up the good work!

  • Katherine

    PLU is such a welcoming place for finding a home exchange. Highly recommend!

  • Eulalia

    Fantastic home exchange site based on trust and friendship between members and not house value.

  • Michel

    Magnifique, Un site avec des gens comme nous, comme son nom indique. Inscription gratuite, deux semaines après 2 échanges pour notre voyage prévu en Australie. Excellent

  • Hilde

    We find the People like Us platform very pleasant to work with. It gives us peace of mind that you can choose to make all information only accessible to members. This dynamic platform is open to suggestions for improvement and we find it a joy to experience that the site is constantly being refined. All the members give a lot of friendship through the facebook group. We are very confident that the first home exchange that we have arranged with PLU will be a success.

  • Karen Niamh

    The most welcoming home exchange site that I am a member of. Great community.

  • Rocío

    Wonderful community and well managed by Drew Seitam, who listens at the members and take care of their needs.

  • Joy and Lisa

    We decided after a change of life circumstances to travel differently than we had travelled before and plunged in to the world of home exchanging. We joined two sites in January 2019 and quickly discovered that People Like Us was filled with people like us.....vibrant, kind, generous, trustworthy and passionate about travel people. We listed our home on the website and quickly joined the Facebook site of the same name which is wonderful for inspiration, friendship and information. We had 10 exchanges planned for two seperate three month trips for 2020 🙄 to Europe and the US/Canada and our first guests were to arrive early 2020.....I am now officially addicted and delighted! All of this through PLU! I’m so happy I accidentally found this home exchange, it embodies the true spirit of home exchange and is opening my mind to a million different travel possibilities .... post Covid19!

  • Joanne

    Fantastic site, members give you ideas of places to visit that you haven’t even considered. Drew has listened to his members to improve the site to what it is today. I have managed to finalise 2 swaps to areas I’ve been trying to exchange to for 5 years. Thank you! & keep up the fantastic work.

  • Andrea

    This is my first use of the Globe system and it really was so helpful in this instance. I had had an exchange offered during January on a different site. They then cancelled at short notice, due to ill health. The Globe then came into play when I saw a blog who was offering accommodation ,non reciprocal. It meant we could go ahead with our plans. Thank you!

  • Sean

    Having been a long term exchanger with another site it was devastating when that site destroyed itself and I had nowhere to turn. However by chance I saw PLU and the rest is history (new). A wonderful site offering camaraderie as well as homes.

  • Pim

    Good platform to use to arrange exchanges. Simple and comprehensive. Facilitated communication easily and the instructions etc are clear. Recommended.

  • Kira

    People Like Us is making it possible for my family to spend the month of July in Denmark this year. It is very easy to get your house posted on the site with all the needed information. The site also has a great search tool to help you narrow down your search and help you find families to possibly exchange with. Making and excepting a proposal through the site was easy as well. It’s all very clear and laid out nicely. We are so glad we found this site and can’t wait to start exploring the world!

  • Kaye

    We are enjoying the difference this home exchange site offers, compared to another one we have used for many years. Members are genuinely interested in the home exchange experience. The site is easy to use. We have just locked in our first exchange and have two more under discussion.

  • Corinne et Jef

    Totally addicted to PLU. We love this Home exchange website, we found the spirit we were dreaming of. Because of Covid our swaps have been cancelled or postponed but i know we will be able to meet all these exchange partners very soon. While waiting for better times we stay in touch in a very easy and friendly way through PLU Feed or Facebook. Go for it and enjoy !!

  • Kimberly

    Wonderful home swap group!

  • Veronica

    People Like Us has quickly become my favorite home exchange site and online community. The site is so easy to navigate and I’m 100% happy with everything it has to offer. It is easy to get in touch with all the friendly members. The response rate on exchange propose really is excellent in comparison to what I have experienced before. We have already completed one exchange and have two more lined up. I love chatting with my fellow PLU’s in the Facebook discussion group and think that Drew Seitam, the founder and owner of this website, has done a terrific job so far!

  • Laura

    Already love PLU and looking forward to being able to travel again!

  • Gema

    I’m not new in exchanging my home, but only few months ago I knew People Like Us. In this time I have arranged one exchange, but many people contactes us! The site is easy to use and the web Master is always working to make it easier.

  • Sylvana, Richard, Merijn & Livia

    Great home exchange site, nice community, great owner, clear and well working platform growing in members. Highly recommended to join.

  • Eileen

    People Like Us is more than a home exchange...it's a FAMILY of like minded people who want to experience the world.

  • Ryan

    We have had great experiences with 2 exchanges so far on People Like Us. It seems to have a very active and friendly community and the website is pretty easy to use. This was our first experience with home exchanging so I can't compare to some of the other sites out there but I would highly recommend PLU.

  • Kirsty

    A life changing website! Amazing community and opportunities. People Like Us has changed the way my family travels, and introduced me to lifelong friends. The globe system is a favourite feature of mine. Highly recommend!

  • Mirka

    Old school home exchange, many friendly exchangers, beautiful homes. Very recommended!

  • Cristina

    Il nostro ex sito preferito per lo scambio casa è stato ceduto ad un altro gruppo che ne ha cambiato l’impostazione e la filosofia. In questa fase di transizione abbiamo trovato su Facebook un messaggio di Drew Seitam, che presentava il proprio sito People Like Us. Ci siamo iscritti sia al sito che alla pagina Facebook e da lì è stato subito tutto perfetto! Il sito è bellissimo ed è in continua evoluzione (Drew è proprio bravo); la ciliegina sulla torta è il gruppo Facebook sul quale gli utenti si scambiano consigli e idee di viaggio: sembra come un piccolo paese dove tutti si conoscono e si aiutano. Cinque stelle sono poche, aggiungiamo anche tanti applausi ed un grazie a Drew che ha reso possibile tutto questo.

  • Ana

    Great site based on trust and respect. A perfect way to enjoy your holidays.

  • Andy

    Our family just completed a non-simultaneous with a family in New York. People Like Us has attracted such great like minded families. The site is so easy to use and if you have a suggestion to make the site better, Drew really listens to your suggestions and implements them when possible. Great site, friendly Facebook group. Don't hesitate to join today.

  • Jacquelyn

    This platform is great for connecting people interested in circular economy & enjoying new places without spending a fortune.

  • Andrea

    A fabulous home exchange community – welcoming, openminded and supportive. The founder Drew takes excellent care of keeping the community's good vibe and is most responsive. Upcoming questions are met in no time. The site is easy to handle and – in contrast to many other homeexchange platforms – privacy settings are excellent. Come and join People Like Us!

  • Peita

    I love everything about People Like Us. Drew has done the most wonderful job in creating this group. People are friendly, kind and helpful. Houses are exciting, stories shared by new friends so nice it really feels like family.

  • Luis

    The site seems to us very well designed :)

  • Mandy & Kai

    Really nice platform to exchange with other people and familys. It's easy to fix a home! It's definitely the best thing to travel around the world !

  • Michelle

    So far so good ! Meeting wonderful new people and finding out about a new way to share the world and make Connections .

  • Ruud

    PLU is the home exchange site with a great community feeling. This is home-exchanging in it's purest way. Home exchanging is about trust and PLU provides and deserves it.

  • Martina

    I have been on other house-swap platforms before, but People Like Us is different. It's a real community of like minded people that know what exchanging means. The Facebook page where people exchange (freely, no censorship) tips, experiences and look for swaps is really a plus. And the technology, thanks to the owner, Drew Seitam, is working, user friendly and improving, in perpetual collaboration with the members (Drew really takes our suggestions into consideration). The platform is smaller then others, for sure, but I found it easier to find swaps here because people really try to make it work when they can. Highly recommended.

  • Delphine

    A Homeexchange site with a soul. We will never travel differently again. We exchange our house since a long time and are so very happy to have found People like Us community and his founder Drew to be able to continue exchanging and meeting beautifully people.

  • David

    Great website. Thanks Drew! People on here are really like minded. It works and the general human kindness shines through from the set up of the site and the people that share their homes on it. Right now writing from a beautiful houseboat located in the southern part of the Netherlands. Great hosts!

  • Geoff

    We are members of another exchange website and have organised a number of successful exchanges through it. But for our upcoming trip to Australia PLU had far more properties and had some filter options that really helped in locating potential exchange partners. I really appreciate all the work Drew has put into the site and am looking forward to our exchanges. Thanks!

  • Michele

    Communication has been great and the process has been easy. Just getting started with PLU, but so far, so good.

  • Lorrie

    We have had a wonderful experience connecting with people all over the world. Because of someone reaching out to us for the sunshine we offer in December we get to spend Christmas right downtown Paris. How great is that?!! The platform is incredibly easy to use and such a true home exchange community. We love it!

  • Katja

    I am new to home exchange. As newbies, we've felt welcomed and taken care of by the wonderful community that is PLU. We already got two exchanges organized with wonderful families and so looking forward to traveling more this new way.

  • Doramelbourneclunes

    What a helpful and friendly bunch. I love being part of this caring and friendly community.

  • Anastázie

    We followed PLU on Facebook for some time and were very pleased about how actively the people communicate there and get to know each other, so it gained our trust for home exchanges and we are really looking for our first experience.

  • Anne-Julie

    Very friendly and easy to share our house with another family over the world. -- Un site vraiment convivial et chaleureux pour partager notre maison avec une autre famille partout dans le monde

  • Leanne

    It is absolutely wonderful connecting with fellow exchangers on PLU. Truly, it's the most rewarding experience. I would highly recommend "crossing over" at least a night with your exchange group. The connection and local information you learn is invaluable. What an awesome tribe:)

  • Roxanne

    I don't often take the time to write reviews, but PEOPLE LIKE US (PLU) is awesome! The management is friendly and accessible and has cultivated a kind culture that I'm glad to be part of and I enjoy participating. I highly recommend PLU and will continue to list my homes and enjoy travel without paying lodging fees. Thank you Drew & Team PLU!

  • Annemiek

    Very friendly community! A great experience which generate friendships and unforgettable trips.

  • Nicole

    I have been a part of this community for a little over a year now and my, how I love it! The people in the community are what make it so fantastic. It’s like a huge family, where all of us can share our experiences and accomplishments with one another and support each other during downfalls. When my home was facing a category 5 hurricane, I had over a dozen people offer their homes to me and my family. I love hearing about the adventures of other exchangers and gathering ideas and connecting with one another. This site has given thousands of people all over the world, a home away from home(or maybe even a few). What an amazing community!

  • Eva

    Easy and wonderful!

  • Alison

    So glad we found this website to begin our home exchange journey. The website is great and there are so many homes to look at, it is a really friendly community of home exchange partners.

  • Bonnie and Graham

    We’ve been home exchanging for 15 years, and have been members of several sites. When People Like Us started up, we were ready to try something new. What a pleasant surprise to find a friendly and active Facebook group, and a user-friendly website with a rapidly expanding range of homes for exchange. Within a few weeks of joining, we had arranged our first exchange, and more have followed. Everything has gone smoothly with our exchanges, and the support network on the Facebook group is amazing. The website has all the features we need to find our perfect exchange opportunities, with a few extra fun features as well. For new starters on home exchange, and for experienced swappers, People Like Us is the place to be!

  • Sandra

    PLU is as much a global family as it is a home exchange site. Other members feel like friends, especially the ones we have exchanged with. Members care about each other's welfare and we even have a Secret Santa at Christmas!

  • Martine

    Très heureuse d'avoir pu finaliser mon premier échange avec PLU. Nous irons à Tours pendant que nos hôtes viendront à Annecy. Je suis sur 2 autres sites et impossible de trouver donc mille mercis PLU. -- Very happy to have been able to finalize my first exchange with PLU. We will go to Tours while our hosts will come to Annecy. A thousand thanks PLU.

  • Tina

    Whoo hoo! Just booked my first home exchange through PLU! The founder, Drew, has done a fantastic job in creating a space where a diverse international community can come together and share our love of travel. There is a huge sense of community here that isn't found on other exchange sites. Check out the Feed and PLU's Facebook group for fun posts and discussions. Drew is an upstanding individual! He is so nice and helpful whenever I reach out to him with any concerns or questions. He really listens to his members. Give PLU a try. You won't regret it!

  • Carmen

    I´m an active member of People Like Us since January 2019. I love being part of this community of homeexchangers. It´s a community that is growing every day that I feel I can trust made up by newbies and experienced exchangers. We all learn new things everyday and exchange information about our experiences through their very active Facebook page. Join is! You won´t regret it.

  • Sarah

    People Like Us is a very user friendly website to use with a great map feature which really works and also has a very friendly Facebook group too!

  • Narda

    I have just received a couple of folks interested in an exchange. It seems that this site has people on it who are more committed to it, as compared to some other sites. I also get a much larger percentage of replies, instead of just being ignored.

  • Eduardo

    muy buena pa todos los que somos intercambiadores de casas . felicitaciones a DREW Y a su equipo . gracias.

  • Luís

    Excellent for home exchanges!

  • Rene

    I have always wanted to home exchange and my husband was always reluctant. Then I found “People Like Us”. It is a community of people that are just like me! Adventurous, generous, flexible and eager to travel. I planned a trip to Ireland which I am on right now. Three separate exchanges traveling the Irish countryside. My trip and PLU have far exceeded my expectations. Bravo PLU!

  • Berge

    Very impressed. The right kind of people with the right attitude, a system and communication that generates trust. This is the place to be for home exchanges.

  • Diane

    We have been home exchanging for over 15 years and have belonged to two other organisations both which we have had some great exchanges through. However, neither offered the community and personal touches which Drew Seitam does on People Like Us. The community he has created is unique and I am so delighted to have arranged my first exchange though PLU. I know this is going to be one of the best and one of many exchanges through PLU.

  • Elizabeth

    This was not only our first exchange on PLU, but our first home exchange ever. From this experience, I can honestly say our expectations were surpassed; we were thrilled with the opportunity and delighted to have met new friends. What an incredible community of like-minded, worldly, kind, and generous people that Drew has built. We look forward to years of travel with our children. Thank you Drew for all your efforts, your commitment to life experiences, and your love of people and travel.

  • Jane

    What a fabulous home exchange platform this is! I am very much looking forward to going on my first exchanges this year and more planned for next year. The friendly inclusive platform created originally by Drew Seitam, and supported wholeheartedly by its members, is testament to how supportive positive communities can evolve and thrive. I would not hesitate to recommend People Like Us and look very much forward to many wonderful home exchange experiences ahead.

  • Natalia

    We are new to home exchanging and we met here many wonderful and kind people. Last year we did cat-sitting exchange with a lovely family in Hamburg which was a life saver during covid times. We can't wait for more exchanges in the future!

  • Charlotte

    Love this group and its communitive. Everybody is friendly and helpful and so many people offers their help if somebody needs it. We have had wonderful exchanges trough this group and have found new friends for life. We recommend this group to everyone who knows are interested in home swapping. The founder Drew Seitam is doing an amazing job. The group just gets bigger and better each day.
