Is there anything that I need to check up on or ask the hosts before I select a place? How do I make a decision when there are multiple options? [more inside]

Inspired in part by this thread I want to rent a villa in Tuscany. I am reluctant - perhaps needlessly - to do this all over the InterWebs.

But really, any insights from actual experience would be helpful.
