Joining 3RD HOME’s world-class roster are Tucker’s Point Club – one of the finest resort communities in the world, set on 200 acres of rolling hillsides in Tucker’s Town, Bermuda, The Deer Valley Club, a private residence club in a beautiful true ski-in/ski-out location on the slopes of Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah, and CostaBaja, “A Whole World in One Place” on the Sea of Cortez with extraordinary vacation homes, international Marina and Beach Club, and a Gary Player Signature Golf Course.

“We are committed to increasing the variety of luxury travel opportunities for our members, and providing a valued service to the most prestigious residence clubs. Our partnerships with these top properties will allow us to offer 3RD HOME members an experience like no other, and increase the utility of owning at these great communities,” said 3RD HOME CEO / Founder, Wade Shealy. “We are certain that Tucker’s Point Club, The Deer Valley Club and CostaBaja will be popular destinations for our existing members. We are excited to work with these new partners and welcome their current owners to join 3RD HOME.”
“This is an exceptional opportunity for our owners to travel around the world and take advantage of 3RD HOME’s impressive portfolio of vacation properties,” said Tom Sleeter, Director of Sales & Marketing at Tucker’s Point. “It’s an ideal arrangement where everybody wins.”
Designed exclusively for luxury second homeowners, 3RD HOME provides a level of value that cannot be obtained through any other home exchange program or destination club. 3RD HOME’s partnerships with over 20 world renowned residence clubs and developments, ranging from the Trump International Hotel & Tower in New York City to Esperanza, an Auberge Resort in Cabo San Lucas, allow 3RD HOME members to exchange their homes for stays at full-service properties. 3RD HOME memberships are endorsed to affiliate property owners as well, which enables them to exchange unused time at their residences to access over 1,500 vacation homes and villas in the 3RD HOME portfolio.
Created to fill a need expressed by second homeowners, 3RD HOME affords members a safe and trustworthy way to “expand” the use of their second homes without the hassles of renting. By depositing weeks in their second homes into the club, members earn 3RD HOME keys, which can be used as currency to immediately reserve a stay in any other available property.
