My husband and I will be there in early October and have found a wonderful looking web site that rents apartments in Venice - www.veniceapartments.org. Some of the deals we found are excellent - 300 Euros for three nights. But, being the suspicious soul I always am, I'm wondering if this is too good to be true.
Anyone heard of any scams associated with apartment rentals or this agency in particular? Their booking request is very reasonable (need either credit card number or personal cheque to confirm booking but nothing is charged until we arrive there where we then are to pay in cash and the initial booking fee is just over 100 Euros) and seems quite safe (they offer 4-5 methods of booking payment, many of which are extremely secure methods if you chose to use them).
Anyone with any thoughts, experiences, or problems in renting apartments or this organization?
