"Thank you so much for your service. We have again found a great property to stay in at a fabulous price. We rented #108805, a four bedroom and 2.5 bath with pool for an amazing $95/ night. I couldnt have found such a wonderful place without your service. And we had a great number of responses too to choose from. We have used your service three or four other times and always had a great place to stay. Thanks again, "Jeanne
