Who’s talking about THIRDHOME


Whether taking to the sky, sailing the ocean blue, or just hitting the open road, at some point everyone answers the call to travel. If you’re a luxury second home owner, however, the options can feel limited when wanderlust kicks in. How does a second home owner justify taking a vacation somewhere other than their second home?

More and more, home owners are turning to home exchanges to swap their properties. However, if you’re a luxury second home owner, you might face a unique set of challenges when listing your home. As the owner of a high-end property, you might worry about strangers vacationing in the beautiful home in which you’ve invested so much time, money, and energy. 

Finally, there’s a solution. THIRDHOME is a bespoke, service-oriented, members-only network of luxury second home owners who feel the same way you do. Here are 5 reasons why our members love us:  

Why our members love us

The most trusted and exclusive member network

It’s one thing to say a home exchange network is large (which THIRDHOME’s is) but there’s more to membership than numbers. Each member is personally vetted and our US and Europe-based member experience teams make sure everything runs smoothly every step of the way. Our passion is personal attention—which luxury second home owners expect.

Simply put, when it comes to exchanging luxury vacation homes, THIRDHOME has the most options, from which to choose. Our network is worldwide, with private single-family home, luxury villas, and fractional resort properties in North America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The world is yours to explore in luxury.

Growing year over year

The best thing about being part of the world’s largest luxury home exchange network is that our inventory is constantly growing. More and more being part of THIRDHOME is a “must-have” for vacation home owners that meet our membership criteria. For you, that means more destinations, more options, and more ways to travel in style.   

Unlock hidden potential 

With over 12,000 properties in 1,700 destinations, THIRDHOME members exchange time in their vacation homes for freedom to explore the world. Leveraging your investment is easy. When fellow THIRDHOME members stay, you earn you “keys,” which is currency that allows you to unlock other homes on our network. The more you give, the more you get.


One of the biggest advantages to THIRDHOME membership is taking part in the THIRDHOME ethos. Our members are open-minded and spontaneous—and our member services team works tirelessly to help members find those moments to wander and encounter the world on their own terms, no matter where they are.

We were a small group but loved having so much space to enjoy. Sitting outside under the patio at night, relaxing in the pool, watching movies, playing games, and gathering around the kitchen island were all great memories of our time in this home. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

This home is a little piece of heaven in the snow. It was magical to look out the windows and see the beautiful views and snowfall. We loved relaxing by the fireplace at night and watching movies. We have so many happy memories of our ski holiday and enjoyed every moment of our stay. A very big thank you!

They say it’s the journey and not the destination. At THIRDHOME, we think it’s both.

Bon voyage!
