Visit an online vacation market rental site such as VRBO.com, FlipKey.com or HomeAway.com to find a cottage for rent. Each site offers a range of tools to search for cottages among thousands of vacation rentals throughout the world.
To find a cottage for rent through VRBO or HomeAway, enter your vacation destination, dates and number of people in the search box on the home page. When the results appear, click Edit beside More Filters, check Cottages under Property Types and click Apply Filters to view all cottages available for your chosen destination and dates. FlipKey offers a similar search tool. When you have located all available rentals in your location, navigate to Rental Types in the menu on the left side of the screen and check Cottages to narrow your search.
Each of the sites offers a range of information about each rental property, including rates and availability, internal and external photographs, and user reviews with ratings. Other information includes a map showing the location of each property, amenities and information about the owners, including their response time and rating. The site can be used to reserve and pay for a rental online or to contact the owner for further information.
