Home details collected include address, city, country, geolocation (for mapping purposes), property type, bedrooms, bathrooms, number of guest accommodations, as well as places of interest and photos of the property. Some Stay4free members also upload pictures of their cars that are available for exchange and of other members of their traveling party.
