Thanks for info- helpful. But how can I find rentals as cheap as suggested? I've researched Air Bnb, Trip Advisor & all the usual hotel ad sites but can't find anything suitable for my husband &,me from about June 24 to August 31. We're age pensioners & need to keep costs down but live in a decent place with at least a small fridge & aircon. Thanks if you can help. Carol
