"I am not a techie on the computer. For years, my husband and I have been running a small summer cottage rental business on Prince Edward Island. It used to be that most people made their reservations by phone. Then dawned the computer age. Thank heaven for Rentalo. I had tried many sites with very little return. Then I found Rentalo. Their site was easy to navigate, very easy to update AND I got a lot of inquiries from lookers - people just wanting to rent a cottage on PEI ! It gave me a chance to talk to real live prospects! It gave the lookers a chance to hear from me and compare me to others! What a switch from being a needle in the haystack listing. To this day, and I think Ive been with Rentalo for over 5 years, its still my favorite advertising site! Sue Smallwood www.lyonscottagespei.com "Suzanne Smallwood
