App Reviews

  • Unacceptable customer service experiences

    By jtr03c
    The app is okay at finding rentals. However, my first experience with VRBO was so terrible that it will certainly be my last unless they improve their customer service support and fix their cancellation policies to protect renters who get ignored by the rental owner/manager. We unfortunately got a rental that was manage by someone who did not respond for days. I VRBO directly first through the website online chat support, which seemed to be positive, but then I was told to call the corporate customer service hotline number to speak with an agent to “escalate” my grievance about the lack of communication from the rental owner/manager. Because of the lack of contact from the manager and a negative review on the property I was confused about how to proceed and whether or not this rental was legit or a scam. I requested to cancel, and the manager finally responded by cancelling the rental and keeping the $1,700+ for 4 nights. So now we are out $1,700+ and have no rental! The agent from VRBO kept referencing policies and sounded cold and unable to make any changes or even partial refunds. At times, the agent could barely be understood. The customer service was abysmal at best. Apparently, VRBO does not do a good job at quality control and keeping property owners/managers in check to ensure customer satisfaction and good communication.
  • Top Notch !

    By clemson mother
    This home was amazing! Everything brand new and top notch from the furniture to kitchen pots and pans to towels and linens. The view of Lake Keowee was breathtaking from every room and porch in the house. My family came in from Europe, Cleveland, OH and California for my sons Clemson graduation. Plenty of room for all to spread out and have private bathrooms and wildly comfortable sleeping arrangement. This was the perfect place to enjoy our time together. We soaked in the hot tub overlooking the lake, paddled around in the kayaks, went fishing off the dock, sat around the fire pit at night, used the big green egg for dinners on the deck. we rented a pontoon boat and jet skis from nearby Lake Keowee Marina. The coveted dock was large and accommodating. Being 30 minutes from Clemson allowed our son and his friends to join us on the water during the day. We did not want to leave. The owner Tyler was great. He was available before our trip as well as the entire weekend to answer questions and make sure we had everything we could possibly want. It was a privilege to stay in this fabulous lake house with my family. Thank you.
  • Works pretty good, but needs improved features

    By JPmays
    Not buggy at all, but functionality could be improved. The map feature is pretty limited - would be nice to be able to switch to satellite view, get directions, see what else is nearby, etc. The rate display is not great either - even though you enter in the date range when you search, you still have to select an entry and then select again to see what the total will be. And even though it shows the nightly rate when scrolling through the search results, just because one entry has a lower per night rate doesn’t mean the overall stay is cheaper, because taxes and fees are not factored in. So you could see one place for $200/night, and another for $215, but the total for the latter could end up being less overall. And lastly, when you share a property with someone, that person has to get the app to see it, instead of opening the website. P.S. While writing this review, I tried to select a word and “Look up…”, and then was locked out of the keyboard. I could select text but not type anymore. Not sure if that’s iOS or the app…
  • Incredibly Beautiful Vacation Home

    By Allenorgan01
    My family and I recently spent time in the beautiful vacation home of Katherine and Jason Mitchell in Panama City Beach, Florida. This is the most stunning condo I have ever stayed in. It’s actually more like a home than a condo. The colors are so easy on the eyes, and it was immaculate. The furnishings and appliances were all new and in excellent working order. The owners of this condo went way above the normal in the things they provide. They have thought of everything....things other condo owners have never thought of. There was nothing that we needed that wasn’t already there waiting for us. Both Mr and Mrs Mitchell were so accommodating. We have a new vacation home in Panama City Beach, Florida. After spending time in the Gulfcrest Condominium, I would never want to stay anywhere else. If I could rate it higher than a 5 star, I certainly would. Can’t wait to get back down there.
  • Not helpful, poor customer service

    By ericagreenhills
    I wanted to vacation in palm spring for my birthday and my daughters 1st birthday in July. Planning ahead, I booked a home that had everything we wanted and needed to have a nice stay. The owner of the home pulled the property from the program and is no longer available. There were only a few homes that fit the criteria for what I was looking for, and they only suggested 3 homes that didn’t meet that criteria. The prices were higher, less beds, less space. Highly disappointed. I did some searching on my own and found a home that I really liked but was slightly out of price range and I discussed this with costumer service to see if they could help me find a home similar to the home that i was interested in or honor the price I previously paid since this experience was such an inconvenience and unprofessional.. they wouldn’t even transfer me to the re-booking team.. they wouldn’t even let me speak to a manager or assist me in searching for another home since “I can do that on my own” is what I was told... I wish I was making this up.. what an awful experience.
  • Less than pleased

    By beds are terrible
    We have stayed in another floating house at Whitman Hollow in the past and have really enjoyed our stay. I would have to say that we are leaving this time and cannot say the same. The house is advertised that it can sleep 14 people. There were 10 of us, and yes there was plenty of room for us to sleep but there was very few places for everyone to sit together. There is a small futon in the living room, 5-6 stools at the kitchen table (1 was too loose to sit on), 7 chairs on the deck. The grill was in very bad shape and did not work properly. All of the beds need to be replaced, they are very uncomfortable and make noises when you roll over. There is a TV that we were not able to get the cable to work on. There is no wi-fi, and very little cell phone service. It was raining and we were all stuck inside with no TV and no service. Overall, the house itself wasn’t that bad it is nicely decorated and has potential to be a very nice place!!
  • Horrible experience

    By wuvcookie
    I will never stay or recommend this apt to anyone. I have never in my life of traveling experience such horrible customer service, poor response time, and lack of communication. The apartment was not ready when we arrived. We had a wait outside of the house for 15 minutes until someone arrived to let us in. I reached out the to the property management office several times prior to my arrival and a day before we arrived to give them my arrival time and no one ever responded back to me. I had to call twice to finally get someone on the phone to let them know we were heading to the apartment. I asked for the head of the property management office to call me and see if they would accommodate us for all the hassle we experienced. No one ever called us. There was mold in the bathrooms, the downstairs bathroom leaked water out of the tub. The toilet upstairs lid was broken. The door to the apartment was so hard to open. We just had a horrible experience. Never ever will I stay or recommend this apt to anyone.
  • Tedious and incorrect messaging

    By jrdhw
    As I worked through the challenges presented by my credit card company's fraud department (canceling and then delaying purchases for rentals in multiple countries), VRBO sent a message to the owner of a property that I desired to rent stating that my transaction was denied due to insufficient funds. That was not the case, and if it wasn't for the grace and patience of the property owner, my family and I may have missed out on a vacation home we desired to rent. VRBO has made communications with the owner exceptionally difficult and with its less than truthful descriptions of actual events has made me question the veracity of their processes and marketing material. Can any message you receive from VRBO be trusted? It would be great if this business connected owners with potential renters in a smooth and reliable process...I wouldn't mind paying for that. But as it stands now, my last two rentals via VRBO have been nothing but hassle. Will consider using other connecting businesses with future vacation rentals!
  • Oceania 515 Palm

    By cat and mike
    Well read this review for a sense of how it went. The trip started poorly as the Airlines lost our luggage. It was returned the next day to the wrong location but out rental agent got it and delivered it for us. We had a condensation leak in AC and Richi sent someone in a hurry to check it. It resolved that day. Now the thing is the place was beautiful. Very clean and had all you would need. It has dishes and pots and pans as well as soap, laundry soap a supply of towels, linens, paper products and the place was very comfortable. The view was incredible from the balcony and the sunsets were picturesque. The three pools and the grounds were extremely well maintained and the security guards were very friendly and accommodating. We are going back next July and can’t wait.
  • Exceeded expectations!! Julie and Pong

    By Julie and Pong
    I was looking for a place to unwind and relax, well I found it!! The pictures don’t show how picturesque it is in person. We were greeted by the owner, Gunther, who showed us a tour of his beautifully decorated house. I loved waking up every morning before my kids woke up and having a cup of coffee on the dock while listening to the loons and was treated by seeing a bald eagle. Lake is so clean and surprisingly warm. Kayaks, canoes, and a awesome fire pit were there to use, so convenient. You never wanted to leave, always something to do. However if you do want to leave for a day trip, Ogunquit, Portland and Kennebunkport is just an hour away. Great location. So blessed to find this place. Thank you again Maggie and Gunther PS...best rum cake ever!!!!!!
