Manhattan Beach, CA (July 2000) – SabbaticalHomes.com is dedicated to bringing academics on sabbatical leaves, research trips or exchange programs together on the web. It is a place where scholars can go to post their homes for rent/exchange/homestay or to search for what other academics have posted in the database.
This service is FREE during this introductory period, and will eventually have very reasonable fees.
SabbaticalHomes.com (CA) fills a gap between the university’s need to operate in a world community and the lack of universal services. Professors on sabbatical have very specific accommodation requirements. First, they usually need to rent/exchange property based on the rhythms of an academic calendar. Most rental services prefer not to accommodate these non-standard time requirements. Second, they are often looking for furnished homes with an office. Professors renting or exchanging homes from other professors are more likely to find suitable accommodations. The academic community can draw on itself to both find and rent properties.
SabbaticalHomes.com strives to add value to campus life by addressing a very specific need. The success of this focused service depends on the number of academics who know about SabbaticalHomes.com and use it. We need your help to spread the word.
We hope you will drop by the site and register your property. Please send this information to your academic colleagues and ask that they do the same.
We thank you in advance for your support and hope you will find value in using SabbaticalHomes.com
