"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
"Im delighted to have found your service. I waited too long to find accomodations for an upcoming visit and it was great to be able to do one stop shopping in looking for an alternative to the chain hotels. I will definitely recommend your service to others who may be visiting the area. Thanks so much! "Marcie Murphy
