Housetrip.com is a great site to look for places to stay for short (or in some cases longer) visits. Various local apartments are listed for review, and you can pick location, amenaties, price, size, and other options that are important to you. Best of all you know that there is a company backing you up, so your deposit and payment money is not going to disappear into the unknown and you have someone for recourse if your plans change or there is an issue with the place you are staying or the host, be it a language issue, contacting them, or a problem with the place you are staying.
I like the fact that there is a middleman because it makes me feel safe in monetary transactions. And that all the hosts have been verified and checked out as trustworthy people.
Everything went extremely well on my trip, like clockwork, host was wonderful, no issues with the monetary transactions, and i would use housetrip.com again in the US and elsewhere. Staying in an apartment locally beats a hotel everytime. Highly recommended.
