    @indecisivebride89:  We rented an AMAZING apartment from Flipkey in Florence with friends in May 2011 and my parents rented the same place in September 2012! Here it is: http://www.flipkey.com/florence-condo-rentals/p212739/ It was perfect and the owners were absolutely lovely. The apt is a little outside the main tourist areas, but a great, safe neighborhood totally walkable to everything. We took the bus to see Chianti during the day. We took a trip to Vernazza in Cinque Terre and stayed here for 2 nights: http://www.booking.com/hotel/it/affittacamere-tonino-basso.en.html Also great, but a little expensive. The hiking in Cinque Terre was truly incredible.

    I’ve also used Airbnb to rent in the states and we’re renting a cabin for our honeymoon from Airbnb as well!

    We’ve used VRBO and Airbnb, but only in the US. My friend moved to Europe last year and actually rented an apartment for the past year that she originally found as a VRBO listing.

    For at least one of the websites (maybe both, it was my dad who had done the bookings and left reviews), you have to definitely have stayed (ie, booked through their system) in order to leave a review, so I think you can trust them. I’d research carefully if it’s a person vs. a company (I’ve done both, and they were both fine) so you know what to expect.

    It saved us *so* much money, so I definitely think they’re a great way of doing things. I’d look for something on VRBO/Airbnb before booking a hotel for any future travel.
