"Rentalo is really amazing - only hours after I first submitted an inquiry, I began receiving responses; even a phone call. Such has not been the case with other websites offering apartments: even those recommended by Frommers and Time Out (Im thinking of letting them know how difficult these other folks make it by comparison.) Ive now consulted at least a dozen purveyors of apartments and am in a quandary: one of Rentalos owners has made me a fantastic offer which I am considering, but only if two friends (a married couple) with whom Ive travelled extensively in South America come for part of the stay to occupy some more of the beds. I promised myself at the start that I wouldnt book TOO much space when travelling alone. So I give you and your owners five stars for prompt and very good offers to rent and thank you all very much. Best regards. Cath Schoen"Catherine Schoen
"Wow. I certainly wish I had used you sooner. I looked at 100 properties, most booked, some not quite qhat we were looking for. After submitting our info to you, we had a number of offers by that evening and booked a reservation the next day. I will definently use you in our future plans. "Scott Hollingsworth
"Just thought Id let you know what a brilliant idea I think this site is. Its just a pity I had to trawl through so many web pages before I found it. It will go in my favourites and Ill be sure to pass it on. No need to reply, just felt the architect needed a pat on the back. "Bev
