A year and 218 posts ago, I promised to spill vacationhomerental.com’s secrets on the best travel deals, from Florida vacation homes to Hawaii vacation rentals and everywhere in between–and beyond.
We’ve been to Oregon, the Philippines, Thailand and Maine. We’ve talked log cabins in Wisconsin, ski chalets in Colorado, thatched cottages in Ireland and ooh-la-la flats in Paris. Every single property–even the budget ones–has stirred wanderlust in me, and perhaps in you, too.
And while it’s been a trying year in so many ways for the nation, the urge to dive off a cliff in Greece and play flag football on a lawn in New England hasn’t waned. To want to be on vacation is only human.
I know, I know: If I only had the money. If I only had the time.
Well hopefully the blog has helped you make it happen with last-minute deals and value-priced condos and estates. I look forward to surfacing more.

Let’s go find another pearly white beach to twinkle our toes in.
Valerie Moloney is your resident blogger and the Expansion Markets Editor for Citysearch.com, who oddly enough, feels panicked when asked, "What's the best place to eat in Chicago?" or her favorite, "It's my birthday. Where should we go with a party of six?" No stranger to travel--and traveling with kids--she is a young mom who ODs on the Internet when it comes to planning family trips or buying clothes. Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
