MyPlace Story

In 2019, 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 during a global pandemic and was called the Raya of Homesharing.

Thousands of internet strangers reached 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 - MyPlace enables sharing that wouldn't otherwise happen on public rental markets.
