How has THIRDHOME changed the way you travel?
We have been able to travel to places we never thought of at a fraction of the price.

Each place just feels like “home” with very relaxing atmospheres.
How is staying in a THIRDHOME different than other types of accommodations?
You are staying in someone’s second home which is sometimes better than your primary residence!
How would you describe THIRDHOME to a friend?
If you have a second home you NEED to be in THIRDHOME! It’s just that simple!
What’s the most memorable restaurant you’ve eaten at during one of your trips?
Our favorite restaurants are probably the Lavender Bistro in LaQuinta, California, and Asolare in St. John U.S. Virgin Islands, which sadly was very badly damaged in a hurricane last year.
