Kindred is a closed network for home exchanges between vetted residents, not a vacation rental or short-term rental platform.

On Kindred, there is no financial exchange between guest and host. Members are trusted peers looking to travel more vs. professional hosts running a rental business, and the homes are real residences vs. investment properties.

Kindred seeks to connect members who have something in common (like a mutual friend, a shared network, or similar quality homes) who welcome one another as guests. You can swap homes 1-for-1, or earn nights by hosting and use those nights to stay somewhere else later.
