We're planning a return trip for a two week stay, can't wait to go back! The first time we went, we stayed at the W - mostly because of the unknown. Now that I've been there, there's no way I want to do a "resort" - I really want to rent a house, especially since we're bringing a crew of family with us this time. My question is - how do you know that who you're renting from is reliable and reputable? It's easy with hotels, but there's a bit of the unknown for me with houses. We're specifically looking at Vista Dos Mares, but the advice would be applicable to anything we're looking at. We've been able to read a few reviewers comments, but that's about it. Any advice?
Thanks so much!
