Men are from Mars

Truth is we never read that book, figured we knew men do everything backwards, or, should we say--differently--than women. This certainly is the case when our significant other goes to book his boys' trips. JSG does it like this: pick a city, then search out the coolest, chicest, fanciest hotel within our budget. Our guy on the other hand goes straight to Vacation Rentals By Owner. This site boasts thousands of properties listed by owner for properties all over the world. According to the website, the advantages over a standard hotel room, are more space, less expense, kitchen facilities and flexibility in price and booking. Sounds pretty good...
On our guy's last ski trip to Park City, he rented a two bedroom house which slept 6-8, where they walked to the lift and to the town. Not a stand-out from the outside, it was completely redone and updated on the inside (gourmet kitchen, gas fireplace, and a big new bathroom with whirlpool tub): all for $300 per night. JSG can't personally endorse VRBO, however the S.O. has used the site three times now, and each was a great experience.

Maybe we can learn something from these guys after all? If you act really quickly maybe you can still rent a house for the Sundance film festival, in Park City today through January 27th.
