Baggage Nanny partners with It’s Borrowed

Most of us want to make life easier and Baggage Nanny solves a problem many of our It’s Borrowed customers have faced, including myself. When I go on Southwest.com or Kayak looking for a flight it always seems like the flight that gets me to my destination at the perfect time to check into my hotel is outrageously priced. I don’t know if the airlines price their flights based on the hotel schedule of check in/check out but it sure seems that way. I then find myself booking a great deal on a flight putting me in at 7:00 a.m....

What kind of Pizza is your Short Term Rental?

Do you like pizza? I do love pizza myself. I don’t always get the same kind and many times I try out new toppings and styles that look intriguing. Now you may be wondering what pizza has to do with short term rentals? When I look at STR listings, it’s very much take it or leave it. Some listings have a plethora of amenities that have been added by the owner to draw the guest in. Everything from snow sleds to surfboards, cribs and more can be thrown in.

Vacationing with your kids doesn’t have to be a drag!

As a mother of two young children I know firsthand how difficult it can be to get organized and remember to take everything but the kitchen sink with you when you travel to your awesome vacation getaway.

If you’re the vacationer, you’ll want to pack enough wipes, bottles, baby food (in...
