Wander is on a mission to help people find their happy place. We’re building a network of smart homes across the globe guests can access with the tap of a button. Come Wander with us.
Wander was born after our founder was struck by the frustrating experience of trying to work while traveling (uncomfortable beds, choppy WiFi, more disappointments). He knew there had to be a better way. There was.
Today, Wander offers smart homes in inspiring places across the United States, from Southern Oregon to Joshua Tree, and Hudson Valley to Surfside Beach, with new locations launching every month.
