Our history

Jean-Baptiste de La Mettrie and Estibaliz Martinez founded Homeforswap.com in 2009, in New York. Both are great travelers and had traveled the world, always staying in private homes.
Jean-Baptiste and Estibaliz realized that the few existing exchange platforms were outdated and needed a boost. For instance, a modern and friendly website which could help travelers to organize their exchanges in an easy, fast and safe way. That's how Homeforswap.com was born, a great portal translated into 6 languages, bringing together a community of over 10,000 members from 120 different countries looking for that alternative accommodation.

Our mission

Our mission is to promote home exchange between people and provide them with a different way of travelling. Further from mass tourism, closer to local people... the idea is to allow you to immerse yourself in the culture of a region or a country and build new relationships across international borders. By exchanging houses you will actually take part in the protection of the environnement by opting for an environment-friendly way to travel. You'll feel at home anywhere in the world!
