Vacation rental owners lie. They post descriptions of their property filled with hyperbole and staged photos that use wide-angle lenses to make their homes look enormous. So how do the vacation rental pros find a better place?
I found myself asking that question after renting an apartment in Lisbon last week. The photos posted on various vacation rental sites made it look palatial, but it was small and cramped. I couldn’t blame the owner for putting his best foot forward, but now that foot was stepping all over my carefully-made travel plans.
