Villa Rentals: Call the agent

Pictures on websites certainly help, but it’s always best to speak to an
agent by telephone. (Some companies won’t even work with clients they
haven’t vetted themselves.) Those we recommend here have firsthand
knowledge of the properties and can answer questions you might not have
thought of: How far away is the grocery store? Is emergency help nearby?
Does the local host speak English? How new are the appliances? Many
agents also have access to more rentals—either in a private portfolio or
through other contacts—that they can offer once you’ve outlined your
needs.
