So I had a dilemma a while back, we were heading off to Seville for our summer holiday and our neighbour had let us down at the last minute so we were left with no-one to look after our cats, let alone our flat.
I had the great idea of renting out my flat for the holidays on one of the many vacation rental sites. The idea seemed great in principal, it ticked all the boxes: the house would be occupied which is always a good thing in the summer, the cats would be looked after and have company, we would receive a good income from renting which would help with the holiday.
But I was left with a large niggling question mark – I love my cats and also my flat and would I really trust a stranger to look after them properly? Maybe they would decide to go somewhere else for a few days and leave the cats with no food or water? Maybe they would have a party or invite strangers back? Maybe they wouldn’t be nice to the cats. How could I know?
Wouldn’t it be so much better to rent out your place to someone you know or someone that knows someone you know? That way I wouldn’t be worried.
That’s why I decided to start MyFriendsRoom where members can rent their place to their friends and contact network. We have been working hard on the website for the past 18 months and I would really recommend that you check it out. Because we are a specialist website we are able to cater to the individual needs of our customers such as pet owners or those who are particularly precious about their homes, your home is special to us.
