Get Your Goldilocks On!
Is someone sleeping in that bed? It could be you, if you rent through one of AskMelissa’s Best Kept Secrets.
|Find the rental that’s “just right” with one of AskMelissa’s favorite vacation solutions—Vacation Rentals By Owner, or VRBO. Access to VRBO’s listings is free for renters; owners pay a small annual membership fee to post their properties.
At VRBO’s home page, you just click on your destination. For listings you love, check the home’s availability on the calendar, then fill out the “Email Owner” form. Conditions, including time limits, guest capacity and pet friendliness, vary by property.
And just like our fair-haired friend, we love to try something new. With over 120,000 listings worldwide, retreat to a Mediterranean-style villa in Santa Barbara with mountain and ocean views for $5,200 a month. The city’s more your thing? Then try this three-bedroom Barcelona flat on the 18th floor with breathtaking city views from its terrace for $400 a night. Should you want to stay closer to home, there are plenty of local listings at your favorite summer hot spots, like the Hamptons and the Jersey Shore.
Unlike Goldilocks, you can’t test the beds. But VRBO can. Go to the top of their home page for rentals receiving their stamp of approval—a bear! Your vacation will end happily ever after.
