View The Entire Checklist
- Envision your ideal property.How many bedrooms do you need? Bathrooms? Do you want a house within walking distance of town? On a waterfront? Must it accept pets?
- Determine your price range.Rates vary from roughly $1,000 a week for a two-bedroom in the United States to up to $10,000 a week for a staffed villa in Europe. Remember: Cleaning charges and security deposits may be tacked on.
- Consider calling an agency.Renting through an agency is generally more expensive than booking online, but it guarantees that the property has been officially screened.
