Navigating Stars: Rating Vacation Rental Homes

  Connecting the Stars The Internet has transformed many industries including, of course, the travel industry.

Wiley Coyotes and Resolute Roadrunners

Some of us spent our earliest years watching Saturday morning cartoons with their host of irresistible animated characters such as Bugs Bunny, Yogi Bear and Huckleberry Hound. One of my family’s favorites was Road Runner with the zany but somewhat lovable Wile E. Coyote and the marathon racing Road Runner.

Choose To Be Happy: Reserving the Right Vacation Home

Where You Stay Matters I’ve traveled worldwide and stayed in eco-lodges, bed & breakfasts, hotels, campgrounds, condos, suites and possibly every combination of “rent someone else’s home via the internet.” Five stars or minus five stars, it’s all been a learning experience. Some vacation rental history like the “mouse house” and the “reappearing frogs in the commode”  make for great story telling (once I’ve recovered). However, stuck in those rental...
