OMG!!! Sorting out a rental is a nightmare from the UK.
We are hoping to fly at the end of October. All of the long term rentals are 'available now' and if you apply for a short term furnished you don't know if the pictures are a true depiction of the place. IE the Midway Apartments look FAB on their website but have a look on google earth street view (what a hole!!).
Think we'll go to a holiday park or motel for a week or two and have a look in person.
I know these places are expensive but we don't want to end up in a dump for 6 weeks!
