Know what you want and need before you begin looking. If you plan on spending most of your time on the beach or in town instead of inside the house, then you might want to look for something that doesn’t have a lot of amenities because it will likely be money wasted. Time your vacation when there aren’t as many people in the area. If you’re going on vacation to an island in the middle of summer, then you’re going to spend more money on the rental. You’ll also spend more money if you vacation while there’s a special event taking place in the area, such as a tournament or a festival.

Read reviews about the person or company renting the home. Look at recent pictures, not ones that seem like they are a few years old. Call the person who is responsible for renting the home to get an idea of how the person maintains the property. There are some owners who don’t allow anything inside the rental home while others don’t mind a pet or two or even smoking as long as you clean the home before you leave. Find out if there are additional fees for guests over a certain limit or if there are fees if the owner has to provide linens, toiletries, and towels so that you are prepared before you arrive.
