Who has the best website?

Style or substance? Don't be misled by more stylish, flashy home exchange sites. HomeLink has the fastest site, offers the most features, and has been designed to make reading and navigating the website both easy and enjoyable for our members, many of whom are retirees and/or people who are less confident using the internet.

We maintain separate websites for (currently 27) major countries around the world. These sites are in the domestic language(s), and run by HomeLink Coordinators who are native to that country. These are real sites run by real people. Each site is tailored to the needs of citizens in that country, while allowing access to the central home exchange server databases.

Every HomeLink Coordinator in the world has complete 24-hour access to administer the central database. New listings may be uploaded, passwords administered, and listings edited 24 hours a day, seven days a week from anywhere in the world.

HomeLink offers the best search facilities. We have several distinct search engines, each designed to match your preferences in searching. We also offer 'Key Word' searches that allow you to specify your requirements in as much detail as you choose. During your database searches, you may 'Tag' listings that interest you by clicking on a button. Later, you may retrieve such listings for review. You may add notes, such as a correspondence record, to any of your 'tagged' listings. Of course, listings that no longer interest you may be deleted from your private file.

Canada - Ontario
Toronto (DowntownAnnex)

We are a small family of 4. My husband will be 65 this year and I am 43 and we have two kids 7 and 10 years old. We love to travel and are looking to travel in August 2014 around Canada. We are travelling in Europe in the October of 2014 and Caribbean in Winter 2015.

We live in Downtown Toronto in the Annex area near Bathurst subway station. We are a 1 minute walk to Bloor St. restaurants and shops and TTC. Toronto has so many things to offer for every kind of family including; arts, cultural, film, architecture etc. All major Toronto attractions are within walking distance or subway (no need for a car really) including the Art Gallery of Ontario (see the Frank Gehry re-design!), the Royal Ontario Museum and the CN Tower. Toronto has lots of ethnic neighbourhoods with fantastic restaurants.
