This view for $99 a night via craigslist? Photo by Karen Glenn.
Interested in renting a one-bedroom cottage with a pool in West Palm Beach for $85 per night? Or maybe a two-bedroom apartment in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco for $150 a night? Or perhaps a studio in Rome near the Trevi fountain for 85 euros ($119) per night? They were among the hundreds of vacation rentals posted today on craigslist.
In case you haven't noticed, the popular online classified site offers much more than just roommates, jobs and used cars. Every location that craigslist serves has a list of vacation apartments, homes and timeshares, many with pictures. Since most of these ads are placed directly by the owner, there are no booking fees, just a deposit.
The best reason to shop here is value, because prices can be far less than a local hotel. So if you've got your heart set on Hawaii, you can find a studio apartment with an ocean view in Honolulu for $99 a night. Or a studio apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side for $80 per night.
Just remember, this is craigslist, so it’s buyer beware. And if you don't find anything you like? Try looking again tomorrow.
