As Spring Break is upon us, and summer is right around the corner, you might want to check out vrbo.com. Vacation Rentals by Owner is a great resource for thousands of rental properties throughout the US and beyond. From VRBO website:
Established in 1995, we’ve been in the vacation rental business for over 14 years. In fact, VRBO was founded by vacation rental owners who self-manage their second homes, like many of you do. We provide an online space for homeowners to advertise their vacation properties and make it easy for travelers to search 150,000+ rentals in over 100 countries worldwide.
I have a friend who always uses VRBO. She told me they recently rented a gorgeous tri-level home with 5 bedrooms and 5 baths for 5 nights for $1800 in Colorado Springs. Much cheaper than staying in a hotel! Plus you have the convenience of your own kitchen, a place for your entire family to get together and visit in a large space, not to mention the PRIVACY! So if you are looking for a large rental, or a small condo, I hope you include VRBO in your search.
