Check out the local forum. There you will more likely get a response as more people read and react to local forums than some specialised forums like this one

Just be careful if you use VRBO-I have rented through vacation rental by owner(VRBO) three times. The first two worked out beautifully-the last time was a nightmare-make sure you are clear about what you want and expect and make sure there are plenty of positive reviews about the rental-I see from this thread that there are other options so I may check these out as well-

I would advise doing the due diligence with ANY rental listing site, whether VRBO, homeaway, flipkey or any other - you aren't booking through the site, and they don't vet the owners/managers - just have conversations with them to make sure they are above-board, and always pay by Credit Card, because that offers you and them the best protection in case something isn't on the up-and-up.

That is great all around advise...As for payment, I actually paid with check as they did not accept credit cards-perhaps going forward I will focus on that area more for the extra protection-Thanks-

So long as you do your homework, paying by check should be OK. Many private owners of single vacation homes do not accept credit cards because of fees involved.
