Some websites provide the opportunity to see user comments about the houses and sometimes even talk to the owners so they can provide you with extra information about the surroundings and details.

It is also good to start searching for a property for the summer as early as January, if you prefer safety and assurance, book early – you might stumble upon some good early booking offers and discounts.

Know what you want

You have to know what you want, how much you want to spend, how large of a property you need, where you want to go… These are some basic details you must fix. Besides that, you may want to bring your dog – or other pet, may have a toddler, a baby or elderly family member who needs some special amenities or equipment that the house should have.

Make sure you have the contact of the property owner, not just the agency. Also, make sure you know all the details of the property so you will not be surprised. It is very important as well that you read the whole contract, all of it, even the finest print!

Hope this helped a somewhat with your vacation planning if you have decided to go on a holiday with a vacation rental, whether you prefer a hillside villa somewhere in Italy, a gite on the bank of a lakein France or a beach house on Hawaii.
