Best websites for finding vacation rentals

These sites also offer vacation ideas and arrange rentals by theme.

HomeAway.com provides “some 230,000 listings” of rental homes around the world, including in the Caribbean and South America. Its catalog of European properties is “especially strong.”

VRBO.com is an easy site to remember once you know that the acronym stands for “vacation rentals by owner.” There’s no middleman; you’re renting directly from homeowners. It has lots of listings, but searches can be “tedious as the site doesn’t have sorting options.”

TheRightVacationRental.com “has experts vet homes” to keep standards up. Prices are generally good, but listings are limited primarily to Europe.

VacationRentals.com emphasizes the perks that come with each listing, from vehicle use to a complimentary bottle of wine. The site is smaller than many rivals, though, with only about 35,000 listings.
