Read Andrew’s full testimonial below:
We have been members of THIRDHOME for more than eight years. In that time, we have enjoyed 21 home exchanges (needless to say we are retired), and had to cancel a further seven due to COVID pandemic travel restrictions. It has been an amazing experience and in many cases, not accessible through other means.
Their favorite trips?
Picking favorites from such wonderful experiences is difficult. We both agree that the best was a game lodge (unfenced!) in a private South African game park. The following were also amazing:
- Our very first stay, which was a colonial house in Singapore opposite the Botanical Gardens
- The Daintree House in far north Queensland
- The Rye House on Mornington Peninsula
- A three-story stone rectory at an historic church in the English countryside
Owners have been wonderful – many outstandingly so. Hiccups have been few, mainly because THIRDHOME was very proactive in resolving the few issues that arose.
Their experience as Hosts…
Likewise, the members who have stayed at our property in Sydney were wonderful, appreciative, and respectful.
Traveling with THIRDHOME is like no other.
THIRDHOME’s appeal to us is that it is global, cost is offset by credits earned by making your property accessible to other members, and because it is not driven by a profit-focused management company. Members are free to join or leave at any time. Staff have been invariably wonderful.
THIRDHOME’s website is second to none. It is great fun to explore the world or just an area you plan to visit for other reasons to see if there is a THIRDHOME property available.
