Since my search function does not work, I cannot determine if this has been discussed here before.
Has anyone swapped houses with another family in order to take a vacation? I saw it on the news and it is supposedly the hot thing to do in order to save costs on hotel/car rental, etc. I know someone who recently did it with another family in Hawaii and he swore his house was cleaner upon his return than when he left.
I am seriously considering it as I live in a desirable tourist area in California and want to travel back east to see some sites (and don't have a ton of cash to blow). Has anyone done it? Care to share a good (or bad) experience? Can you recommend a good website to register with?
