With people flying overseas on a more regular basis than before, staying at a hotel is no longer the only option when finding accommodation abroad. Couch-surfing, backpacking and now home-stays are becoming the newer, trendier and cheaper options for all those wanderlust individuals.

Wanting to design a space that would ignite their passion for travel within a secure community of friends – Behomm was born on the basis of giving what they call the “accommodation site of choice..for the most visually demanding of guests.”

Besides from swapping houses, owners are matched with one another by their similar interests, allowing them to not only share their space but also their ideas. A journalist passionate about design could stay at another’s to write a piece, an artist could visit another’s for inspiration… & so forth.

The two parties agree to exchange homes temporarily for a set price and then the trip begins. However, to be a member of Behomm, an invitation from either the founders or friends within the community is required, making it an exclusive hub for house-swapping for those involved in the creative industry.
