Reviewer31784 on 2016-02-04
We recently booked a reservation through VRBO for a ski vacation in Snowshoe, WV the week between Christmas and New Year's 2015 (VRBO#273113). Due to the extremely mild weather, the resort was closed due to lack of snow. As in no skiing. At all. We contacted the owner to try to move...

Shari Fitz-Patrick on 2015-06-24
BEWARE OF HOMEAWAY.COM. Most rentals are now being booked through Homeaway.com. On Sunday I tried to book a rental and had to give my credit card, thinking that once the rental was confirmed they would debit my card. NO, they took the money $2, 000 out there and then and five minutes later...

Homeaway/VRBO.com / Arm-bending tactics

Danbury on 2014-12-11
I've been advertising my house as a vacation rental on vrbo.com for two years, and I really dislike this company. They are fixated on getting homeowners to sign up for the online booking program. Constant emails about it. Finally, they've decide to actually punish those of us who...
