I would be a little leery of craigslist. My Future Father-In-Law AND Future Mother-In-Law rent a big vacation house every other year and have all their kids familys vacation together. They always go through a website http://www.vrbo.com  Vacation Rentals By Owner  and they’ve had alot of success with that. This last summer they rented a freaking huge house on the coast of South Carolina that was gorgeous, and we all had a great time. They have rented houses in Colorado, Florida, and at Martha’s Vineyard through there. Never in Hawaii through. I would still recommend going through this site as it is reputable.

Yeah I wouldn’t go for craigslist alone. Lots of scammers out there, and there’s no protection for you if you are swindled.

While I LOVE craigslist for many many things…I would be careful about vacations

I say that because a few years ago my mom went thru a whole mess where she was renting a cabin for a week and it turned out the lady was a total scammer and didn’t even own the house

I believe VRBO has a little more safeguards

What island are you going to? We LOVED Kauai 🙂

I’ve used craigslist to get leads on places since a lot of rental places coadvertise but I wouldn’t rely soley on craigslist.  Like they might include a link to their website and you can see it’s an actual hotel or they might link to a rental agency and I’ve found some good deals that way but I’d we wary of just some random person for something like a honeymoon.
