Lead Product Designer

Posted on Tuesday, April 25, 2023

In 2019, Founder Zach Bell created a no-code website over a long weekend to make his two places available to a small circle of friends. His friends asked if they could add their homes and one thing led to another and that Squarespace site ended up on the cover of the travel section of NYT.

Thousands of folks started reaching out to see if they could access the site to share their homes with their own friends. At that moment we realized that many more people would make their houses available to their friends if they didn't have to offer them as public rentals. By connecting friends and private groups.

We know that sharing can change the world becuase it's real magic. Regardless of what you have, when you share you have more.
