Sabbatical Homes, an online listing service for scholars needing to find or offer temporary accommodations, is proud to announce its updated website: sabbaticalhomes.com.

"There are multiple reasons people come to our site--some are searching for homes, while others are looking for tenants. We recognized the importance of having a strong search feature that truly answers the needs of all our users," Nadege commented. "We also know how important it is to narrow down search results based on what criteria is important to the user, so we spent a good amount of time and effort updating the search interface."
The easy-to-navigate search bar is featuring in the middle of the homepage and can now be found from any page within the site on the top right-hand corner. The updated search feature enables users to quickly and easily find what they're looking for, including: home rentals, home exchanges, home sitting, home share, home tenants, and house sitters.
