Renting Houses on Vacation

Would you rent a house on vacation? We really like to rent places, since they’re typically less expensive and more spacious than hotels (which is especially great when you have a child), and staying in a real home makes you feel like a local. Here are three amazing places, just for fun…

Here’s Paris with a balcony…

And this San Francisco apartment is just a block from Dolores Park.

We usually scout places on Airbnb, Homeaway and VRBO. If you’re feeling wanderlusty, Airbnb has really fun round-ups.

Where have you rented houses or apartments before? Any recommendations? Any funny (or horror) stories?

P.S. Remember this California spot and this Hudson Valley home? Dreamy.

  1. I remember when some of my classmates did something similar to this for a senior trip in California. Before that, I didn’t even know that this was something you could realistically do. I think this is a great way to approach a vacation though. It would definitely be much nicer than staying in a hotel. I wonder ho comparable the costs are though. That could be a big thing to consider.

  2. SO these are just little homes you can rent while on vacation? Are they in neighborhoods? The fences make them look they are neighborhood homes. That wouldn’t be a problem for us, though. Thiago |

  4. We deal in all type of properties in Israel. If you are looking for Israel property for sale and apartments for rent then we are only solution for your all property needs.

  5. For a young college student like myself, I like the idea of renting a home. You got fifty other things you got to worry about, and when your renting a home, all you have to worry about it paying your monthly rent to your landlord. If your on top of it, it’s a very easy process, and saves you a lot of stress.

  6. While much has been written on its influence on contemporary living, its influence on western cinema has not been given proper recognition. It is an unfortunate consequence of our civilizations history that Vacation homes for sale is rarely given rational consideration by the over 50, who form the last great hope for our civilzation. Relax, sit back and gasp as I display the rich tapestries of Vacation homes for sale.

  7. To delve deeply into Jerusalem real estate is an exciting adventure. Many an afternoon has been enjoyed by a family, bonding over the discussion of apartments for rent . Indispensable to homosapians today, it is impossible to overestimate its impact on modern thought. It still has the power to shock those politicaly minded individuals living in the past, obviously.

  8. Renting your house on vacation is a nice idea. One can get the same price of money they need to spend for their vacation. The only thing which is to be taken care is of rent and tenants. That can be overdone by the professional rent takers.

  9. I’m going to the US for the first time ever in a few months and I’ve been looking at Air BnB and VRBO – looking at places in NYC, they’re a lot cheaper than hotels. Anyone have any personal recommendations of something cheapish and central for 2 people? <a href=”

  10. We rented a house on top of a hill in the jungles of Costa Rica for our honeymoon. It had privacy, it was spacious, and we could see a dramatic view of a volcano from our windows. It was 20 minutes down a dirt road in a remote little town, which added to the adventure. We loved it! Highly, highly recommended! jual lingerie murah lingerie indonesia lingerie online juallingeries vannie shopia lingerie seksi toko lingerie jual lingerie online lingerie import jual lingerie online murah

  13. That is a perfect sized place to have when you are on vacation. It is not too big and it is not too small. It is there to do exactly what it is suppose to when you are on vacation and that is to keep a roof over your head when you are going to sleep. The things that people come up with can be so amazing and helpful towards people too.
