Trading One Luxe Accommodation for Another

Rather than let your vacation home sit unattended for weeks at a time, 3rd Home[1], a premier private club for owners of luxury second homes, lets you exchange that time for stays at top destinations worldwide.

With 3,600 properties across the globe, 3rd Home allows second home owners to stay at elite properties[2] without the expense of villa fees and hotel rates. While traditional home exchanges require a direct or simultaneous exchange with other members, 3rd Home does not. When a 3rd Home member makes weeks available at their second home, they earn 3rd Home Keys. These can then instantly be put toward reserving a stay anywhere in the network, be it a luxurious private home or a residence within one of 40 3rd Home affiliates like The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club, The Reef Atlantis, Calistoga Ranch and The Residences at the Chateaux, to name a few.

The process is simple. First, list your home and have it approved. Second, earn key credits based on the amount of time you make available in your second home. And finally, redeem your keys for an available stay anywhere in the network of properties—even at the last minute. Your only required expense is a nominal exchange fee that ranges from $395 to $995 per week.

“The club is made up of like-minded individuals who each have their own luxury vacation home in the club, making it a trusted community for sharing,” says Steve Zacks, CMO of 3rd Home. “Reviews are solicited from the host and guest on each stay ensuring that it stays that way.”

Are you a wine lover? Do you like to take the occasional ski outing? Maybe it’s golf that’s at the top of your mind. Whatever drives you to your escape, 3rd Home lets you customize your search. And with home locations everywhere from Vietnam to Uruguay, the 3rd Home network puts the world right in your hands.
