Renting a Vacation Home

A couple of weeks ago you might remember that we drove out to Palm Springs with three other couples and our three kids combined.  Our first pilgrimage to the desert was four years ago when one of our friends found a great deal on HomeAway and, childless, we all packed our bags a couple of weeks later.  Last year we found our house in St. Thomas the same way and enjoyed a week in the caribbean in a pretty sweet abode (albeit without air condition– read the fine print, people.)  This was this year’s house.  (You should also …
