Have you ever wanted to be in a rom-com? Well, now you can! “The Holiday” (2006) is a romantic comedy starring Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz. The plot follows Rose from England (Winslet) and Amanda from California (Diaz) as they escape their current troubles, swap homes for Christmas and end up finding love. As idealistic as it sounds, Time + Leisure reports that swapping homes is now a real thing! In operation since 2011, Love Home Swap is a global home exchange program that allows users to list their homes and then browse other properties owned by those who want to swap.

Per Time + Leisure, Love Home Swap offers everything from cozy cottages in Wiltshire, West Sussex and Oxfordshire to luxurious Los Angeles villas in Hollywood Hills, Calabasas and Pacific Palisades. However, the site’s options don’t stop there. They have options in Thailand, Australia, Italy, Spain and Paris as well.

In the movie, Winslet and Diaz agree to switch “home, cars, everything.” The site, however, takes a much more realistic approach to the swap. There is a $240 membership fee per year and those who sign up must have their house available to swap. There is no limit on how much you would be able to travel. Members can either participate in the “Classic Swap,” where travelers simply switch homes, or the “Points Swap,” which allows members to collect points to allow them to swap whenever and wherever they’d like.

Love Home Swap gives travelers the option to explore the world by immersing into another country’s culture without the hassle of hotels. But, would you be comfortable living in someone else’s home, or rather, would you be comfortable with someone living in yours? Read the full story from Travel + Leisure here.
