Find a Place for the Whole Family: HomeAway
Click Factor: Focused on privately owned vacation rental properties, HomeAway—along with its sister sites VRBO and VacationRentals—is a great first stop for group travelers. The more than 250,000 properties on offer are particularly strong in popular destinations such as Cape Cod and Paris.
Drawback: City listings are uneven—a search for apartments in Tokyo yielded only 11 results.
T+L Tip: HomeAway’s Carefree Rental Guarantee protects you if the property is double-booked or drastically different from what was advertised.
