"Dr. Paul Weinberg, here, owner and operator of Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. I have been using Rentalo for 4 years and most recently, during tough economic times, Rentalo has exceeded my expectations 3 important ways: 1.. A referral from Rentalo resulted in a client couple renting a vacation villa for 4 months; they loved our resort and visited countless waterfalls, hiked the Highlands and themselves referred 8 more guests to Cabot Shores. 2 Rentalos search engine promotion got Cabot Shores in December to the top of AOL travel recommendations 3 A number of prospects/guests saw our lobster fishing video as a result of Rentalo promotion and booked adventure packages with us and extended their stay at Cabot Shores. My business results are up 40% during a recession. I give Rentalo thanks for helping our business excel during what are otherwise tough times. "Dr. Paul Weinberg
