Featured this morning on World Home Swap https://www.facebook.com/groups/1952476815051268/ and People Like Us is a new listing in the middle of the UK. I hadn't heard of it either but you're going to want to take a look. 🇬🇧️It is a market town in the Upper Calder Valley in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, nestled in between 3 valleys in the Pennines. It's really beautiful and it's the location of this morning's feature home from Adelle. Adelle may get the Photographer-of-the-week award 🏆. Her photos are truly stunning. She should win the award for her handbags alone! 😄🍾👜 Afficher plus

This morning, come with me to member Caroline's place Pallisters in Midigama on the south coast of Sri Lanka. https://peoplelikeus.world/properties/517 It's approx 2.5km from the coast in a little village, but close enough to the ocean to still hear it. There's a walled and private garden, which is full of fruit trees and spices and birds. There are two spacious bedrooms with large ensuite bathrooms. Each having, air conditioning and hot water showers. Each room has its own outside area, with courtyard gardens, and a fish pond.

New member Marc has listed his home overnight and, in doing so, adds our 27th country to People Like Us. https://peoplelikeus.world/en/properties/537 Bulgaria is only a few hours from anywhere in Europe, and this property is delightful.

It also has hammocks, so maybe more! :) Take a look and tell your friends. Let's get the Bulgarian community growing on People Like Us!
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...Afficher plus

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.
