THIRDHOME has discontinued its Luxury Rental Program due to efforts to refocus on its business model and long-term goals. The decision was made after careful consideration and with the company’s and its members’ best interests in mind. While the Luxury Rental Program had been a successful part of the company’s offerings in the past, THIRDHOME believes that focusing on its areas of true expertise of providing quality luxury home exchanges and amazing travel experiences aligns with what its members want.
As the luxury market constantly evolves, THIRDHOME is committed to evolving with it. The company understands that its members value convenience, trust, and variety and is continuing to explore ways to expand its offerings to meet these needs. In addition, THIRDHOME’s focus on real estate opportunities, luxury lifestyle offerings, and other areas of the luxury travel industry will allow the company to serve its members better and provide even greater value. This move aligns more closely with its mission and vision and will be better positioned to provide exceptional service and support to its members.
If you own a second home and want to learn how to become a member of the fastest-growing and largest luxury home exchange that includes resorts, private homes, and even yachts, we’d love to meet you.
THIRDHOME Rentals is more exciting than ever! Exchange members can now use Keys for up to 10% off their rental booking.
We are excited to announce a new way to maximize your THIRDHOME membership! Even with the thousands of options available on the Exchange site, there may be instances when you’re unable to find a stay that meets your travel needs. Luckily, our Rentals program is the perfect alternative for uncovering more stays within your desired location or time frame. Now, best of all, members can enjoy up to 10% savings by using Keys to book a stay on THIRDHOME Rentals.
About THIRDHOME Rentals:
THIRDHOME Rentals gives you more options for finding your next dream vacation through our platform of luxury-only vacation rentals. Discover new properties, new destinations, new experiences, and new opportunities for one-of-a-kind travel.
What’s new with THIRDHOME Rentals?
Aside from offering members up to 10% savings when they book with Keys, the THIRDHOME Rentals’ portfolio has significantly increased over the last few months. Now, there are more than 1,600 properties available in 27 different countries.
Furthermore, our property searching tool has also been improved with filter options. Plus, it’s easier than ever to find a vacation rental:
When members browse on Exchange, if there are no available stays matching their search criteria, a module will appear showing properties available on THIRDHOME Rentals for the same destination and dates selected.
What are the benefits of THIRDHOME Rentals?
- Members enjoy the same elevated standards as the Exchange: THIRDHOME Rentals program is much like the Exchange Club in terms of the quality and caliber of homes and resort properties available. All homes must meet our community’s standards: ideal location and well-appointed, with a minimum home value of $500,000.
- Properties are carefully vetted: All THIRDHOME Rentals properties undergo a vetting process and comply with the verification steps set by THIRDHOME, so members can list or book with confidence and without compromise.
- Choosing our rentals over Airbnb or VRBO: Unlike traditional short-term rental sites like Airbnb or Vrbo, THIRDHOME Rentals offers a network of luxury-only, hand-picked vacation rentals. Our Rentals platform does not offer “shared spaces” like private rooms within a house. You will never have to worry about sharing common areas such as bathrooms and kitchens with other guests not in your group.
- Exchange members have the chance to use Keys for up to 10% off rentals: After you log in to your account, navigate to THIRDHOME Rentals, and enter your desired destination and dates. Once you select a property, you will find a total quote for your stay, including the number of Keys you may use and the amount of money saved by using those Keys. You can enjoy up to 10% savings, which will be deducted at the time of payment.

Designed to capture refreshing sea breezes, this home was built with large seaward openings and a focus on the garden and pool area. With room for 12 people, Villa Dolce Vita’s spacious interior includes a warm combination of stonework, wooden beamed ceilings and a collection of historic antiquities.

With the addition of THIRDHOME Rentals and Adventures, the THIRDHOME brand has been updated to reflect our evolution as a travel brand.
Logo Evolution since 2009
Since 2009, the definition of “THIRDHOME Luxury Property & Travel Club” revolved around home exchanges and basic travel concierge services. In 2018, THIRDHOME evolved into a Luxury Property & Travel Club that offers Exchange, Rentals and Adventures.
THIRDHOME Exchange invites second home owners to join an exclusive community of like-minded members to trade time in their home for stays in spectacular destinations. THIRDHOME Rentals empowers owners to list their home with confidence and allows travelers to book without compromise. THIRDHOME Adventures elevates travel experiences with uniquely crafted journeys around the globe.
To communicate the differences between our offerings, the THIRDHOME logo has been color coordinated to match specific services.
THIRDHOME Master Brand: Platinum
Anything having to do with the overarching THIRDHOME brand will include a touch of platinum. Platinum is a color associated with prestige, wealth, sophistication and modernity. It evokes the shiny chrome of a technologically advanced future while also calling back to traditional elegance. As the color of the master brand, platinum is meant to illuminate the way ahead as we continue to disrupt and innovate the travel space.
THIRDHOME Exchange: Blue
The color of the sky and seas, considered strong and stable, blue embodies the trust and stability THIRDHOME Exchange Club members expect. Exchanging your second home online requires a great deal of trust, from the Exchange and the accompanying members. Blue represents the health and vitality of our Exchange club membership while also reminding members of THIRDHOME Exchange’s integrity as an intermediary for cherished and privately-owned properties.
THIRDHOME Rentals: Gold
Gold is a charismatic color showing wealth, extravagance and prestige, while also illuminating the colors around it. That’s how we see THIRDHOME Rentals, a spotlight illuminating luxurious properties for other members to enjoy. Gold also reflects the quality of said properties, each one as eye-catching and brilliant as the last.
THIRDHOME Adventures: Orange
No other color could capture the vitality and enthusiasm of Adventures quite like orange. A color of energy and happiness, orange reflects the extroversion and excitement that the THIRDHOME Adventures brand offers with its trips and tours. THIRDHOME Adventures include small group and custom tours that are meant to change perspectives and open hearts. The refreshing glow of orange invites open-minds to gather around the ember of THIRDHOME Adventures.
These logo and THIRDHOME brand updates were made to more accurately reflect our mission to disrupt the luxury travel industry and become the premier private travel club in the world. By building a uniquely curated collection of luxury Exchange, Rentals and Adventures, THIRDHOME will inspire members at all levels to explore the world like never before -in style, with confidence, comfort and camaraderie.
New logos and colors may seem like small details in the grand scheme of The Club, but it’s an important step towards defining the special relationship between Club and Member.
Being a great guest for a home exchange or rental means treating the host’s home like your own.
The Golden Rule, do unto other’s homes as you would have them do unto your own, is the foundation of being a gracious guest. But as we discussed in our accompanying post, How to be the Perfect Home Exchange or Rental Host, it’s the small things that really leave an impression. Be sure to consider the following before, during and after your next THIRDHOME stay:
- Host Guest Manual: Did the host leave a house manual with a detailed description of amenities, contacts and procedures? If they did, follow this document to the tee. If it’s absent, reach out to your host to make sure you have a clear understanding of the property during your stay.
- Feedback: Did you leave an account of your experience in their guest book? Did you review your host’s property page? Delivering positive or constructive feedback to your host is key to making sure that the THIRDHOME experience remains consistent for both guests and hosts.
But being a perfect guest doesn’t end there. Keep reading to see how each stage of your trip should be approached as a guest.
Below we’ve outlined some of the most important things to consider when preparing for your stay at a host member’s property.
Before Booking your Stay
- Read the property page to see if you need to ask additional questions about the home
- Check for any additional fees before making a reservation
Directly After Booking your Stay
- After receiving your confirmation email reach out to your host to confirm arrival and departure details
- Make sure you know how to locate the home and have instructions for entry upon your arrival
During your Stay
- Treat the home as you would (or better than!) your own
- Upon arrival, if you see anything that is broken/damaged, be sure to let your host know right away
- Should anything be damaged during your stay, notify the owner so compensation can be discussed
Before Departing your Stay
- Tidy up after yourself
- Load the dishwasher and wipe off kitchen counters if dirty
- Collect and dispose of trash
- Follow any departure instructions left by the host (such as stripping beds, taking out trash, etc.)
- If your stay included staff or housekeeping, be sure to leave an appropriate tip for their services
- Bring a “thank you” gift for your host (bottle of wine, a souvenir from where you live, etc.)
- Leave a note thanking your host for opening their home to you!
- Leave a property review for other members! You will receive email/dashboard review prompts after your stay.
