Call it a quirk, but I love searching short term rental properties online. If you ask me, sites like HomeAway have been the best thing to happen to travel since the commercial flight. Why stay in a boring old franchised hotel chain when you can post up in an actual home? Even better, if you know how to search for them, you can end up finding fantastic properties that are experiences in and of themselves. Our entire team is headed to Italy this Friday for a week in Tuscany, and we’ve teamed up with HomeAway to take our trip to the next level by staying in a couple of dream Italian villas while we’re there. Half the fun of planning our trip was searching through all of the incredible properties available through their site! I’ve included four of our favorites below (along with four of my tried and true tips for finding your perfect vacation rental). It was clearly a tough decision, but can you guess which one we’ll be checking into this Friday?
