Exclamation Woo-Hoo!! Final payment on rental... but I am so-o-o-o-o nervous!!!!

Well, we made payment today for a rental at Encantata Resort.
It feels great to have it finalized, but at the same time, I am so nervous about this!!

Last year we stayed off property for the first time in a condo, and we loved it!
Having so much space to move around and being able to cook meals was awesome!!
But our sellers couldn't rent to us this year, so we had to find another place to go.

I did as much research on this rental as I could, and doubled checked things to the best of my ability.
Still, going into the unknown is scary!!

Pictures look great and everything seems to be on the up and up, but I just can't help but worry.
Someone please shoot us some pixie dust so things will go well!!!

Glad to know I am not the only worry-wart!!! It's hard to throw so much money to someone on blind faith!!
I hope your accomodations turn out to be great, and you don't have any issues!!!

I rented 5 times in the past and all was good. I would hate to go back to a hotel room now.

Oh, I know!!!
We stayed off-site in a 2-bed condo last year, and swore we'd never go back on-property!!
I am just worried, because this year we had to find another owner to rent from. So we are starting over again with the whole faith and trust thing. That's why I need someone to add the pixie dust!!

I think we need something like an Angie's List for vacation homes so we would feel more comfortable renting from a stranger.

Been doing this for a lot of years but there's still that concern about whether you've picked the right place. It's not as bad as it used to be. Hoping all will go well with you (and me) this time.
