Those fortunate to own luxury second or holiday homes are in for some good news, with Elite Resorts of Asia Pacific brand extension Elite Living securing an exclusive arrangement with the world’s most luxurious private exchange program, 3RD HOME, for 12 Asian Countries.
3RD HOME represents the elite end of the property exchange concept for travel, enabling luxury property owners to leverage the value of their own holiday home, by using unoccupied time to travel to different destinations, without the hassles or high cost of renting.
A members-only club, 3RD HOME is open exclusively to those who own a second home in desirable locations with quality furnishings, appointments and amenities.
By depositing available weeks in a holiday home into the club system, members earn ‘Keys’ relative to the value of the property that can be immediately used to stay at a whole host of other premium properties in a huge variety of international holiday destinations. All of this in real time, online.
While the concept of property exchange isn’t new in itself – first there was couch surfing, then house swapping – the introduction of 3RD HOME means that the concept is no longer primarily the remit of backpackers and travelling empty nesters looking for extended stays in primary residences.
As a “Friend of Elite” subscriber and upon joining 3rd Home before end March 2012, Elite has arranged for you to have your first reservation transaction Free Of Charge if made within the first 90 days of membership and stay during the first membership round of 15 months. This represents a saving of US$495. To sign up for this fantastic 3RD HOME offer, please visit the 3RD HOME and Elite Site.
3RD Home has over 800 exchange properties opportunities in its portfolio including the following:

Heaven-sent for lazy family gatherings and also landmark celebrations.
