This is the time of year when a little sunshine is very cheering. So why not take the family to Florida for a long weekend or even a week in a vacation rental house or villa that will cost a lot less than a hotel room and provide a lot more space and privacy, not to mention a kitchen. Travelers who book a vacation rental with Rentalo.com, the leading on-line vacation rental directory, can choose the destination, price, number of bedrooms, amenities, and nearby activities--ensuring that the kids can enjoy Walt Disney World, dad can play golf and mom can swim laps in the pool.

Rentalo's new website design makes it all easy and fun to arrange. It features a photo slide show of each rental property and gives a complete property description, a property map, prominent contact information and even an availability calendar--all on the same page. There's a "Special Offers" box that gives access to hundreds of listings with amazing discounts. And there's even an inquiry form that makes it easy for travelers to send one inquiry to multiple property owners, who then "bid" for their business.
