The safest and easiest way to rent a room for 1+ months

Find reliable and considerate renters who stay for months, not days. We screen for safety, compatibility and social intelligence. So you can spend time enjoying the company.


Finding quality renters is simple and easy

  • Your house, your rules

    Open your home without upsetting your balance. You set your rules, your price, and choose who to accept. Everything is documented and transparent so there are never any grey areas.

  • Background checks and more

    We require references, background checks, and proof of employment from renters. We also handle leases, collect monthly rent, and facilitate settlement of disputes amicably.

  • Good on paper and in-person

    Our team is dedicated to bringing you the highest quality renters. Once you have an offer, use our secure in-app chat and video call feature before arranging to meet face-to-face to make your final decision.
