We host each other

We're a local community of people who let each other camp on our land for free. It's like having a friend-of-a-friend to stay with wherever you go.

Built on reciprocity

Reciprocity builds trust. Every night you host you earn a credit to stay a night as a guest.

Everyone hosts

Reciprocity builds trust and community. Every night you host you earn a credit to stay a night as a guest.

Hosting is easy

All you need to host is a parking spot and restroom access within walking distance. You approve every guest.

Renter & owner friendly

Unlike short-term rentals or subleasing, no cash changes hands. Hosting is like letting a friend swing by in their van.
