So I wasn’t aware of these sites until about a year and a half ago, but since then have used them about 4 times. These 3 sites i’d recommend to anyone looking for an affordable getaway to anywhere around the world. Instead of paying for a hotel, which are both boring, simple, and cramped, you can rent condos and homes for REALLY low prices. They often offer multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, private yard, BBQ equipment etc.
Adam and I stayed in a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house on cape cod with my inlaws and sister-in-law a couple months back and I think we paid around $300 for the weekend. Basically what you’d pay at a hotel but with WAY more space, privacy, full kitchen etc. And we split that 3 ways and BAM. $100 bucks for a weekend! (there were cheaper options but we liked this one.) You can sort by price or amenities. It’s great. We already got a place in Hawaii for 5 days for $320! Private beautiful condo.
