We found over 20 vacation properties available for rent in Princeville with surprisingly inexpensive rates, typically ranging from $150-$300 per night. We also found some properties with more advanced amenities: for example, a three-bedroom condominium that sleeps eight, with a two-car garage, pool, bonus room and hot tub for less than $400 per night. We also found VRBO to have lower cleaning and service costs in Princeville than other areas.
booking. com is known for its affordable hotel accommodations, but the site also offers a growing number of condos and other private rentals. Activate the “vacation rentals” filter to exclude hotels and see only condos and other vacation rentals. This site has fewer listings than our top choices, however, there are still some deals to be found. When we listed condos on VRBO and Booking.com, we found the average rates on this site to be slightly cheaper. We also appreciated their prepaid pricing, instant confirmation and flexible cancellation policy.

This locally owned vacation rental company has a large selection of condos available for rent in Princeville. Their easy-to-navigate website is also full of helpful information, which is especially useful for out-of-state visitors. You can search for rentals by name, features, or location, and each listing has a robust photo gallery, reviews, and more information about the property, such as its location and amenities. We especially like the “Availability” option, which lets you see all the dates currently available, and the “Today’s Deals” section, which has rotating specials. Many hotels also offer 3D virtual tours so you can “see” the hotel before you book.
