Now, if you are a bit nervous about rental by owner (VRBO) have a read through this story about Dave. Matt (from www.VacationRentalMarketingBlog.com”) tells us,
Dave McCormick is like a lot of people. As the Owner of Pro Kitchen Gear, Dave travels a lot. And whether for business or pleasure, he has been a hotel traveler all his life. He’s always liked the standardization, the amenities, and the comfort in knowing precisely what he was booking prior to arrival. As a matter of fact, he used to work for Sheraton a number of years ago. So to say Dave was opposite to a vacation rental traveler would not be an exaggeration. Until recently that is…
You can tell that Dave kinda wanted to switch to a vacation rental and forgo some of the conveniences of hotel travel. So Matt asked him what were the real concrete reasons he was happy he stayed in a rental.
We wanted to live like a local. We wanted to feel like we were coming home every day and being able to cook in our “own” kitchen. It made the experience unforgettable since we weren’t rushing around trying to find food every 4 – 5 hours and had remarkable views and half the price.
Dave goes on to explain all the details about living like a local in the vacation rental he rented. You can read the rest here…

In case you haven’t heard, there are scammers on Craigslist and other free vacation rental directories. Photos and descriptions of legitimate rentals are swiped, then the scammers create a free listing with the hijacked pictures and details. Potential vacation rental guests are asked to wire transfer money to bogus bank accounts and, ultimately, lose their hard earned money.
When you are looking for a great Whistler rental, always verify who you are renting from. You should have a written rental agreement, references from past guests, and contact with the home owner or manager.
