Been looking for several months to find a place for this late 50's Arts-oriented couple to escape the NY cold for a month.

Important factors are Walkability, good restaurants, Arts, beach, safe neighborhood, warmth and a social environment for people our age.

Been looking on Homeaway, VRBO & Craigslist, but not having much luck. The good places we've seen in Delray are 3 month minimums, or they have had pets in the units whch presents a problem due to allergies.

Can someone suggest other sites, and/or other areas to look?

Thanks

Most communities HOA require at least a 3 or 4 month rental. I work with seasonal rentals even finding a 3 month rental can be difficult. Most communities ask for 30 days to review applications. Anything less than 3 months can be difficult depending on what you are willing to spend. Do you have any communities in mind?

I rent my home with a one month minimum......but you are asking for a month right in the middle of peak snowbird season. My place rents usually about a year in advance, and during "season" I turn away scores of folks and will always take a 3,4,5 month or more renter over a one month rental.

You may find a last minute, (I consider now last minute) rental from a cancellation due to health reasons, etc......a consequence of renting to snowbirds........

It may be different in other areas, I only know my situation. Good luck!

Frank

Some of the ones that are on craigslist for example may say 3 months but may work something out for you. Last year I found my mom a home to rent for 2 weeks. It was last minute plans and the place was open so the onwer did it. On craigslist are you looking under vacation rentals and sublets/temp part?
