In order to achieve our goal, we decided to give Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO) a try. We knew that we needed to find a place to rent for at least a month. It had to sleep 6 people, be kid friendly, and have amenities such as a kitchen and laundry facility. We found VRBO to be a very user friendly website chalk full of great pictures and reviews of vacation rentals. From sprawling ranches to urban flats, VRBO offers much to the shelter seeking traveler.
We were surprised at the ease in which we were able to identify a property of interest, contact the owner, and secure a rental agreement. The whole process was seamless and we found a gem of a place to "live" for the summer! I recently was asked by the owners of the property to write a review of our experience.
