Share your spare lair when you're elsewhere. Without a nightmare or hot air.
As homeowners like you, we want to feel good about the people we invite into our place. When we first envisioned Private Porch, we wanted something that would enable us to share how we want and with whom we want.
So we created Private Porch to give people control and flexibility, plus a way to discover new places to rent, share, and trade with friends and their friends as well.
