HomeAway – Cool Rentals in the Suburbs of Mainstream

Posted on Monday, August 16th, 2010 by

HomeAway – Vacation rentals galore, this great site lets you tap into special accommodation options outside the mainstream B&B scenario. Quite similar to Airbnb which was previously featured here on All My Faves, HomeAway matches more independent tourists and visitors with local property owners seeking to rent their place for short periods.

Aside from searching for rental properties by location, date, number of guests and price, HomeAway also allows you to compare rental places by stacking all your checked selections horizontally, showing you the benefits and drawbacks of each rental property. HomeAway is a great solution for the more savvy tourist who is looking for a more local feel. See the screen shot below of the comparison option, applied to a vacation destination in Cyprus.
