I recently wrote about how to save money on hotel costs by using some of the discount sites online. Another way to save money, or to get more for your money, is by doing a vacation rental.
I've always wanted to do a vacation rental. I think it would be really neat to stay in an apartment, with two of the big amenities apartments have to offer: a kitchen area and lots of space. As I was thinking about it, I realize we have already done just that. Our hotel accommodations in Reykjavik was a studio, a huge room with a sitting area, a dining area and a galley kitchen. It was great!
Friends of ours just returned from renting a villa in Tuscany ... another item on my bucket list. And other friends rent a condo in Florida very February. Whether Tuscany, Reykjavik, London or Barcelona vacation rentals, or just heading to Florida, consider an apartment for your stay.
