    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!

  • Amy

    People Like Us is unlike any other traveling community I have ever been a part of - I feel such an innate trust for everyone on here. It's really quite incredible. Thank you, Drew, for setting the tone and remaining so engaged!

  • Alexandra et François

    People Like Us is not an ordinary exchange platform : it's a spirit, a community and a lot of friends everywhere! We've been exchanging home for a long time now and we found again here what we were searching for in the beginning : the real "Share". Try it, you won't see your house and your holidays the same way you did before!

  • 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!

  • Laura

    I've never really been a "joiner" (like Groucho Marx said, "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.") but PLU changed that. After serendipitously coming across their Facebook page and joining just to see what it was, I loved these people! Adventurous, trusting, fun, and friendly, they were the people I followed during Covid. When Drew (who I feel like I know personally) created a way to officially join, I joined--and I'm so glad I did!

  • 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.

    Scrivo la mia testimonianza in italiano perché purtroppo in Italia viaggiare scambiando casa é ancora un modo di viaggiare poco conosciuto, invece credetemi è fantastico: visiti luoghi che non avresti mai visitato, lontano dalle mete turistiche, sei ospite in case piene di comfort, incontri gente accogliente da tutto il mondo e spesso rimangono in contatto con te nel tempo, risparmi e a volte scambiando anche l'auto è comodissimo, c'è sempre qualcuno a casa tua per bagnarti le piante o dar da mangiare ai tuoi amici animali. Tra tutte le comunità a cui mi sono iscritta questa é senza dubbio la migliore, super organizzata e piena di gente simpatica!

  • Lois

    New site with old philosophy of exchange. we have added this site to our exchange options and have only had good experiences of communication so far. Our first exchange is in process now as a non-simultaneous exchange and we look forward to completing it next year. Everyone so far has been friendly and open in their communication. We will not renew our listings on one old site and lo replace it with People Like Us.

  • 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.

  • Ingrid & Bjørn

    This is a friendly and welcoming group of home-exchangers. It has been easy to find people interested in exchanging with us. Due to Covid 19 we have only had one echange close to home so far. In the future we have several options available.

  • Carlos

    Great site for home exchange. It is more attuned to the original values for home exchange, a true community of people that respect this way of travelling.

  • Sylvana, Richard, Merijn & Livia

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

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • Núria

    PLU has returned us our faith in home exchanging. Drew and his platform embody everything we value in home exchanging: closeness, familiarity, trust... Besides that the response time to any issue is astonishing, and Drew is open to hear our opinions when he introduces any change (however small). He has given us the sense of belonging to this huge adventure and this is just awesome.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Anna-Lena

    Best échange site ever. I have met so many nice people that I never would have met if it’s wasn’t for People Like Us. I can highly recommend this site.

  • Janine Ruth

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

  • 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!

  • Michelle

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

  • James

    We had exchanged many times in a previous exchange program and were wildly supportive of it. When that program disintegrated, we learned of People Like Us. Wow! PLU has the benefits of the old program before the ownership change, but, in addition, has Drew, its dynamic leader. He has made a personal commitment to make this not only work financially, but work in the best interests of the members. Vicki and I are all in, both for the friendships we’ll make, and for the opportunity to share our bit of paradise with you.

  • David and Sheree

    Joined this site to expand our home exchange options, expecting the normal impersonal interaction with other exchangees and invisibility to site administrators. Found instead, a community who are dedicated to principles of friendship and respect, and an administration team whose motivation is not commercial, but genuine interest in, and concern for, the satisfaction of members. I cannot recommend this site highly enough.

  • Magnhild

    A beautiful community!

  • 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.

  • Betsy

    Love PLU!!! Keep it up Drew!!! I look forward to many more exciting exchanges!

  • 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!!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Debbie

    We joined the site in 2019 and quickly organised our first swap with another dog-friendly household.The website is easy to use ( well done Drew) and everyone seems friendly and welcoming. No experience with other sites but this ticks all our boxes so far. We are looking forward to travelling further afield and can't wait for our rescheduled exchanges in Canada and France. Hoping to earn a Globe this year by offering our home when we are on a non-exchange staycation. We love it!

  • James

    People Like Us is a very personable home exchange web site. Newly created and very much a small business approach to the concept. Virtually all the major home exchange web sites have turned professional and increased charges accordingly. Like real estate MLS sites, these web sites provide a marketplace for people to meet and negotiate exchanges; none of which they own or manage. Nice to see someone trying to keep costs (and profits) low.

  • Estela

    Such a well run exchange platform full of positive vibes. Drew is always improving things and really listens to the needs of users.

  • Cathy

    We've just agreed our first two exchanges with PLU and couldn't be happier with the whole experience!

  • 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.

  • 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 contacted us! The site is easy to use and the web Master is always working to make it easier.

  • Tamara

    People Like Us is more than just a home swapping website - we love feeling part of a community that offers opportunities to make meaningful connections with people around the world.

  • Kim

    People like us have been a dream to deal with Very nice people and a wonderful creative team!

  • Donna

    Fabulous home exchange community! So many places I want to visit, mainly because of the beautiful people on here.

  • Donna and Scott

    Just completed our first exchange and we are hooked! I had looked into it for years but never felt fully comfortable until connecting with members on PLU. We were excited to become Founding members as soon as the option was available! Its money well spent! We already recouped the expense of the 3 yr membership with our one exchange! We could have not found a hotel room for the night for what we spent. We are so thankful to Drew and all the wonderful people who have built this special community!

  • Meredith

    People Like Us is a very friendly community. The exchange process is easy and the layout of the website is very user friendly. Kudos to PLU!

  • Jakob

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

  • Anna Maria

    Il sito è fatto bene, velocemente si possono contattare le persone per proporre lo scambio, le persone iscritte sono cordiali e aperte, si ritrova lo spirito giusto per affidarsi a delle persone serie e motivate.

  • Melinda

    Great service and community

  • Jessie

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

  • 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.

  • Eloïme et Yoann

    Nous n' imaginons plus nos vacances sans PLU. Déjà 2 échanges et tellement de souvenirs. Nous avons gardé contact avec les 2 familles en UK et Pays bas. C est un excellent moyen de faire des rencontres et de montrer à nos enfants des endroits incroyables. We can no longer imagine our vacations without a PLU. Already 2 exchanges and so many memories. We have kept in touch with the 2 families in UK and Netherlands. It s a great way to meet new people and show our kids amazing places. Elo & Yo

  • Eulalia

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

  • Amy

    Extremely happy with the website People Like US for home exchanging. The members are truly caring and the founder is hands on and listens to the members. IT is a great way to meet people as well! Highly recommend.

  • Anke & Ye

    Love the PLU website! Very easy to use even on a mobile. Very interactive!

  • Lisa

    The best home exchange site out there.

  • Natalie

    I'd seen 'home exchange' websites before and thought they were a great idea, but once I'd viewed the 'mansions' and 'luxury villas' available to swap, I figured It was something I couldn't be involved in. I stumbled across a very friendly page on social media, checked the website and thought, "Hey these are people like me!" I immediately created a profile and started chatting with people. Everyone is so helpful and kind. It's a real community. I received help and suggestions to improve my listing and it didn't take long to arrange our first exchange. It's not happening until next year but I've been in regular contact with the exchange family. Drew, that created the community is a great guy who is always willing to help anyone and everyone. He tries to be as fair as possible.I'm so happy I discovered People Like Us and am addicted to browsing the listings!

  • Ginger

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

  • 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!

  • Ed

    The website is constantly upgraded with added features and functionality to make it more user-friendly. The site seems to be a labor of love for the management.

  • Eileen

    This is the friendliest most user interactive site available. The owner Drew and PLU members fully represent the TRUE home exchange philosophy of trust, sharing and openness. We have been members of other home exchange communities for a number of years. We joined Peoplelikeusworld (PLU) recently after it started. Definitely the best decision we made.

  • 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.

  • Maurice

    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.

  • 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!

  • Mélanie et Johann

    L'échange de maison est une formidable façon de voyager, à la fois très confortable et très proche des gens. PLU est une communauté de personnes avec les mêmes valeurs de partage de respect et d'envie de voyager et de découvrir !

  • 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! :)

  • 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!

  • Malin

    People Like Us is so much more than just an exchange platform - it’s a community. Not only have we found exciting exchange destinations and fantastic homes and locations, but also made new friends across the globe. And we constantly learn more about other countries, customs, local food, handcraft, languages and so much more through the lively Facebook feed. It has given an international touch to our everyday life!

  • Jean-Claude

    Bravo pour l'évolution récente du site Web . Il est convivial et accessible.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Dora

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

  • Bee and Derek

    People Like Us is a very special home exchange site. The owner, Drew Seitam, is an absolute gem; incredibly helpful, friendly and patient. The site seems to attract the cream of active home exchangers who understand that communication and a courteous approach to other members is the way to go. A comprehensive guide is included on the site, explaining to both newcomers and "old" hands how to put together listings which will be attractive to others. We've been exchanging for 19 years, are most impressed with PLU and have just organised a fabulous swap in the South of France through the site. So if you've been thinking about trying home exchanging, don't hesitate, take the plunge and join People Like Us.

  • 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.

  • Marjon

    Geweldige website. We kijken er naar uit om de eerste ruil via dit platform te organiseren.

  • shawn and bill

    We love the vibe of PLU! Friendly, accessbile, and trusting. We've exchanged via another site and we are looking forward to exchanging via PLU soon!

  • Katherine

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

  • Theresia

    A very niece community where everyone care way beyond just houses. An extended family basically!

  • Gary and Chris

    We have organised our first exchange through PLU. The exchange has been accepted and our globe has been transferred. We have made arrangements to receive the key to the apartment. So far, so good. Painless.

  • Marisse

    Good site with great people on it! This is still a smaller comunite to swap your house, because of that it feels more personal :)

  • Carol

    The PLU wesite simso much more user friendly than The platform we previously used! Hoping for more Exchanges with PLU!

  • Catherine and Eric

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

  • Peta

    Great site, great people, beautifully managed.

  • Eva

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

  • Mandy & Kai

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

  • Barbara and Glenn

    People Like Us is a warm, welcoming community. In it we have found kindred spirits who view the world with the same enthusiasm and curiosity as we do. We have opened our front door and found the whole world waiting on the other side. It's an absolute joy! One thing we've found here that we don't have on our other exchange site: a vibrant Facebook community. It feels such a privilege to be connected to so many people who also have what we call 'an exchanger's heart', people who understand what is at the core of swapping homes: a genuine desire to travel, share and grow. As Susan Sontag once said, "I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list."

  • Judy

    I find this group to be so friendly and helpful offering such wonderful exchanges around the world. It's a terrific way to travel and meet wonderful new friends as well!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Nadine

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

  • 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!

  • Emily

    I love this group. I travel every chance I get and love finding the same community spirit of sharing.

  • Pim

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

  • daniela

    Excellent site ! I recommend 100 % !

  • Carey and Peter

    A fabulous site with help and advice freely given.

  • Lone

    I love PLU :-) I first learned about the PLU community around New Years 2018/19 when I came across the Facebook group. I followed the communication there for some weeks and felt it was just what I had been looking for being a big fan of the original home exchanging spirit. I signed up January 2019 and listed my home and within 10 days I had organized my first exchange with an English family, that I had already "talked" to via the FB group. And since that January I've had several offers from all over the world and have organized different kind of exchanges - simultanious, non-sim and hospitality. This is by all means a site and community where people take ownership in the best possibel sense and there is always a great tone when people communicate both "behind the scenes" as well as in the FB group. Also an amazing willingness to help out each other if/when people reach out no matter what the issue is. I can only give my highest and best recommendations to PLU - join us!

  • Sheila

    Just a great place to meet new people experience different cultures!

  • Cathy

    Je n'ai pas encore voyagé en dehors de la France avec PLU, mais j'espère pouvoir le faire bientôt et je recommande !!! I have not yet traveled outside of France with PLU, but I hope to be able to do so soon and recommend !!!

  • Marc & Elena

    Nous avons effectué plus de 40 échanges au travers de différentes plateformes spécialisées et affirmons que People Like Us, non seulement est un outil extrêmement efficace pour choisir des partenaires dans pratiquement tous les pays du monde, mais People Like Us est aussi une Communauté de personnes qui ont en commun le même sens du partage et de l'amitié. Nous vous invitons à nous rejoindre au sein de cette merveilleuse communauté et de goûter au plaisir de l'échange. Marc & Elena (Espagne)

  • 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!

  • Marie-Amélie

    Plus qu'un site, People Like Us cache une véritable communauté bienveillante, curieuse et ouverte! -- More than a site, People Like Us hides a real benevolent, curious and open community!

  • 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.

  • Pat

    People Like Us is a friendly community led by the irrepressible Drew Seitam who really listens to the community and has developed the platform in a way that reflects the ethos of true home exchanges -- respect and trust.
