Looking for a vacation rental near Richmond

My family (a group of five) will be visiting my sister and brother-in-law living in the Midlothian area in May. We'd love to stay in a vacation rental rather than a motel or hotel. There is only one listed on VRBO and I can't get a response from the owner. Can anyone recommend anything with 2 or 3 bedrooms?

You might check craigslist. I see at least one that is 30-minutes from Richmond. Be careful though - one ad is actually trying to SELL "cheap" homes. Yeah, right.

There are lots of timeshare/condo rentals in Williamsburg if that isn't too far away.

I agree with Wendymath that I would be extremely careful dealing with individuals; vacation rentals are not something that is normally done in Richmond, so you will be quite lucky if you find something. Even the residence hotels I know of in the Richmond area are either studios or 1 bedroom.

I don't know how long you're staying, but if it's an extended visit, an alternative for you might be corporate housing. Oakwood has 3 facilities in Midlothian and a facility in the Bon Air area, which is not far from Midlothian that you might want to check into. Do a search at:
