The 10 Best Rental Homes You Can Actually Afford To Vacation In

COURTESY OF TRIPDADVISOR

 

 

Summer is the ideal time to take a vacation, but hotel prices, on the other hand, are usually less than ideal. TripAdvisor recently released its second-annual Traveler's Choice Award winners, and these 10 rentals swept the "affordable" category. But that doesn't mean they're just low-priced — they offer some killer amenities, incredible views, and don't require you to sleep on stiff, cheap-motel sheets. Whether you want to go somewhere exotic, romantic, or adventurous, there's something for you on this list.
