What is SabbaticalHomes.com?
It is an online listing service that we created to help academic and scholarly-minded friends find home rentals, home exchanges, home sitting, and sharing opportunities all over the world. We created the site specifically for academics, but welcome all who love to learn!
Why should I choose Sabbatical Homes over other websites?
Living in a home is more well-suited to the scholarly traveler. Besides being more affordable than a hotel, it truly helps one discover and understand the place they’re visiting. Trust and integrity are important components of home rentals and exchanges. Oftentimes, there are only a few degrees of separation between academics. We offer low-cost listings and instead of taking commissions, we ask for success-based contributions to sustain our service knowing that not all academics can afford the same amount.
What makes Sabbatical Homes special?
Our service is geared towards helping scholars who travel for research and to help make the world a better place through education. We service a group of like-minded people.
