Rome Apartment - Scam or Real Deal?

Jump to last reply

Ciao fellow travelers, just wanted to get some feedback from some other seasoned travelers before I move forward with my plans. I'm going to Rome for a couple weeks and it's kind of last minute. I found an apartment that I'm very interested in renting but it seems almost too good to be true. Here is the link: http://www.vrbo.com/408084. I found it on vrbo.com, but I know that doesn't guarantee anything. There are two things that are making me a bit wary. First, the cost of the apartment is half of the cost of most of the other places I've looked at. Don't get me wrong, it would be AMAZING to save some money here, but it seems almost too low to be real (500 Euro for 12 days). The second issue is that the owner wants the deposit sent directly to his bank account. Don't most owners use Pay Pal or something? If anyone has any thoughts or feedback, I'd really appreciate it. I have to make a decision quite soon, so please respond soon! Thank you in advance for your advice!
