Hi Everyone!

Planning a trip for 2 couples 5/19-5/26 and would love to find a reasonable 2BR vacation rental and avoid the resort/hotel life. I've been searching on and TripAdvisor but it is hard to tell which reviews I can rely on.

Anyone know of a reliable site for AC rentals or have any suggestions? Any info would be greatly appreciated! Cannot wait for the trip.

vrbo and flip key - the vacation rental section of trip adviser - now only allow reviews from people who stayed in the house, so reviews should give an overall accurate picture with the odd obvious anomaly here or there.

As a home owner if I get a new review I get an email from each asking if xxx stayed in the house prior to them posting the review, but I don't get to see the review. If they did stay they post the review, if they didn't they investigate it further and won't post it if they didn't stay. it's a much better system for all concerned.

Previously - like a year or two back - anyone could submit a review, from your jealous neighbor/competition to your upset ex husband/wife. It was tough and I don't have an ex wife..........

Thank you Phil, I really appreciate the feedback. There were a few properties that I found mixed reviews once I searched the name of the property and the difference in the review from the ones on VRBO made me a little cautious. Thanks!
