The Sunday New York Times – Practical Traveler has another article about vacation rentals, this one in response to their earlier article “Skirting the Pitfalls of Private Rentals (read my blog about this). This followup article includes some of the comments from the earlier article, including my comment about SlowTrav.com being a great place to read vacation rentals reviews. It also quotes some good and bad experiences with vacation rentals, including one very bad experience renting a Paris apartment from an agency. There are some good tips for finding good rentals.
“Several readers recommended Web sites where travelers can find reviews of vacation rentals, like www.vacationrentalscommunity.com and www.slowtrav.com.” New York Times, Practical Traveler, Readers Sound Off on Private Rentals, by Michelle Higgins, Nov 2, 2008
SlowTrav.com is the website and community that I started eight years ago, but sold last year. Maybe, a few years from now, this new site Slow Europe (when it launches in a few weeks) will be mentioned in the New York Times!
