We are always looking for wonderful places to stay, while traveling. I eschew hotels for the most part, and prefer homes in which we can relax (and have a yard, if possible), especially if we are to be gone for long periods of time.
I recently had a chance to sit down and talk with the founder of a service that can help with just that ...
Nadege Conger, of SabbaticalHomes.com. She was quite gracious, and obviously interested in all aspects of international education!
WE: Tell us a little bit about sabbaticalhomes.com....How did you get started?
NC: SabbaticalHomes.com was established in 2000 as a way to provide the academic community with a means of participating in home exchanges, rentals, or house-sitting across the globe. The goal was to enable scholars to conduct research away from home or go on sabbaticals without spending a lot of time and money on housing issues. No suitable services existed
when I created SabbaticalHomes.com. As the spouse of an academic, I sorely needed such a service and decided to create it. The Internet was the perfect vehicle to make it happen.
WE: What geographical range do you have for your properties?
NC: The site offers both national and international services, with opportunities in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Asia, South America, the Middle East,and parts of Africa.
