Have you ever used Airbnb.com? I have not but I have friends who love it and tell me that I should stop staying at hotels and try it. Since they kept raving about it, I decided to check it out, starting first with homes that are listed locally.

I found this two-bedroom, quaint and cozy home in Olivebridge that I had to check out because of the price to rent it for a month. The price is $117,395, or more specifically the listing is for $117,395 per month and that is with the 10% discount for renting it for the month.

Here are a few things about the home: it has 2 bedrooms, a pool, a fireplace and, if you're a pet owner like me, the listing says that it is no problem to bring a dog. (That's good, because Scrappy does not like it when I leave him at home with the pet sitter). It also has wi-fi and access to a washer and dryer. Things that are huge perks when traveling.

In fact, here is a photo of the pool. It is beautiful, is it not?

Check out the rest of the listing, look at the photos. What do you think? Is it right on target for your vacation rental budget of something under $120K?
