What people say

The Room Xchange is a great way to use your spare room that is unoccupied for most of the year. My house mate Li helped me with my daughter so I can go back to work and get some personal space back. House sharing with Li has really changed my life.

Using The Room Xchange to find our housemate Sheryl-anne was simple and the benefits over the last 18 months have been huge! It's a much easier process than trying to find occasional outside help. I had more time for myself and got to spend more quality time with my son. We went through lockdown together and forged an extra strong bond. We'll miss her so much when she moves overseas; she'll leave a big gap in our household!

Our kids have grown and left home. Having someone sharing our house has filled the empty void. It also feels good knowing that the space is being used and the rent for the room helps as well.

Lou and Harry

Professional couple

I didn't want to go to a nursing home. I wanted to stay in my own home with my wonderful friends and neighbours around me. Sharing my house with Lyndsay gave me peace of mind knowing I have someone here should I need it.


Elderly retiree

I'm a busy professional, working long hours and always coming home to an empty apartment. It's great having someone here who I can enjoy meaningful conversations with at the end of the day. It's also good to make better use of my spare bedroom.

It’s been so refreshing dealing with the team at The Room Xchange. Their business model, genuine care factor, and super friendly vibe were awesome - I highly recommend them.
