OK, not THAT kind of "sleeping around!!!"
Planning a getaway vacation??? Do you want a choice that is a bit more affordable and Eco-Friendly?
Try renting a house or "house swapping."
The folks at Ideal Bite have this great tip...
Fooling around with all the conveniences. More than the average hotel - fully loaded kitchens, laundry rooms, backyards, and general coziness.
Getting it (on) for free. The average rate for a midprice hotel room worldwide is $166 per night. Exchanging homes is free.
Saying "screw it" to high resource use. Those half-used shampoo containers, always-on hallway lights, and daily bedding changes in hotels add up to a lot of waste.
Getting up close and personal with locals. After all, if you wanted to hang out with your own crowd, you'd just stay home. This way, you'll get a more authentic feel for the area."

Honeymoon potential? maybe!
Also, I saw this cool site the other day called Coastal Nest. Looks nice... "A vacation cottage in Pacific Beach Washington. Stay & play & getaway!"
Remember what Dorothy always said: "There's No Place Like Someone Else's Home!"
