Default Airbnb/vrbo accommodation documents

Hello guys,
So I am applying for UK spouse visa from Canada, and my wife and I unable to find anyone to help us with accommodation documents, so Airbnb/vrbo are the only options for us right now. I have 2 questions:

1. Does anyone have any personal experience, or know of someone who used one of these websites to fulfill accommodation requirements of the UK spouse visa? Also, what's the minimum duration I should ideally book it for? I can book it for any length of time because I am thinking of booking a property that comes with free cancellation option.

2. Assuming that this option can work, what all documents regarding the Airbnb/vrbo booking would I need to submit as part of the application?

Seriously, can someone...anyone help me figure this out? My wife and I have kind of hit a wall when it comes to relying on accommodation help from friends/family in the UK. Airbnb/Vrbo kind of websites are my only hope now. Has anyone here used one of these or similar booking sites to fulfill accommodation requirements? The things I am confused about is ideal duration, documents to include apart from booking confirmation page.

Thanks in advance!

Book something for 3 months..... present all the documentation proving you have done so ... confirmation booking, deposit payment etc etc

Thank you, Crawford (not just for this but also for answering some of the other questions I've asked in this forum).
One more follow-up question - Since my wife (the sponsor) and I travelling to the UK together, does it matter if the accommodation is booked in my name or her name? I just encountered a question in the online application form where it asks if the sponsor owns the property or rents it, and then there's the "other" option as well where in I could enter text as additional information. Logical thing to do would be to select "other" and then add a bit of context about the accommodation. Does that make sense?

Book it in the sponsor's name ...... yes, use 'other' to give explanation and other info.
