My reply is usually the same...book the first night so there's no stress or panic, then freelance the next day when your fresh and rested and you will find your little chunk of paradise that fits your needs.
I have a lovely but small (3 rooms only) guest house that I will open officially on March 1st. I do have space available for the dates you are requesting. Rooms are $50 U.S. per night and are quite nice and charming.
Please let me know if I can help you with your lodging.
