What are some websites you use to find summer apartment rentals?

I'm only looking to rent an apartment for 1 month.

Any suggestions for websites to find rentals for as short of a duration of 1 month that have more than just big family style vacation homes, but small little apartments for rent for a weekly or monthly basis?

Thanks!

Start on craigslist for private listings, also consider the option of house sitting for a month, which can be a sweet situation. Then there's Marriot's Residence Inns. http://www.marriott.com/residence-inn/travel.mi Whenever I stayed somewhere over five days, I called them first to wheel and deal.

It depends on where you're looking, but a lot of college students have yearly leases but want to leave in the summer, so they sublet. Craigslist has a sublet section.

Thanks for the tips.

I'm heading to Rhode Island for a month or perhaps 5-6 weeks. I'll be there in a few weeks.

I saw a number of sublet options on Craigslist and I'll be there soon to check things out too.

Thanks!

Airbnb.com is great. Its not just for bed and breakfasts, a lot of them dont even offer that. Its short term renting apts or rooms. Check it out myman. You jive ass turkey!

Another vote for airbnb. I just used it to find a short term rental for a week and it was great - lots of thing that weren't on Craigslist.

yeah couchsurfer.com is actually really great. Forgot about Padmapper.com for sublets... Its cool it combines a bunch of sites like google maps and craigslist to show you on a map all the available apts that come up after you enter your search criteria. I guess there was a major debacle with them recently but I think they are still up and running.

Okay, just googled, they are still up and running however they had a cease and desist notice and they no longer work with craigslist. Still should be a resource worth using though I believe.
