  • Bed bugs

    By KimmyO123
    We stayed at Solare Tower room 706 and I woke up to multiple above bed bugs and blood stains on my sheets. When we reported it and employees came to inspect they found more bed bugs crawling around and they took pictures as well. I have video and photos. We came from San Antonio to celebrate my uncle’s 45th birthday and it was ruined because of this experience. There were no other vacancies so we had to find other lodging on our own and were turned away by many places because we only needed two days now and most will only rent for a 3 day stay. We spent hours looking for new lodging. I have bed bug bites on my body and scalp. My mother also has bed bug bites on her body. My uncle’s partner also has bed bug bites on her body. I already have sleep issues and this experience has aggravated those issues. Now I’m afraid to sleep at our next rental because I’m afraid of bed bugs. I’m also concerned about the three households that we will return to. Will we bring bed bugs back home with us? I hope not, but it’s possible. We, a family of four had to inspect every article of clothing and spend hours in limbo. We didn’t have a place to stay. Staff was unhelpful. We had to find a new place on our own. Our first trip to Padre was ruined because of this experience. We drove five hours to get bit by bed bugs.
  • Hawaii

    By Marshin4
    Went in a trip to Hawaii that has been booked for months. Stayed at a beautiful ocean front house. Unfortunately a category 5 hurricane is heading directly here now. When we were discussing the matter with the agent trying to find a solution because we are scared for our lives. The gentleman has the audacity to say we can not accommodate for inclement weather. All we wanted was to have him find us another place to stay. The gentleman then told me to speak to him with respect completely disregarding the worry in my voice. Mind you the house is less than 25 yards from the water and currently the direct impact for hurricane lane. Inclement weather is rain, snow or just non-vacation weather. Inclement weather is not a category 5 hurricane. The person I spoke to should be striped of his job because he is the poorest customer service representative I’ve ever spoke with. Now me and my family are sitting 25 yards from the beautiful ocean waiting and hoping for a safer place inland. The best quote from this foolish man was there is nothing we can do. There is nothing we can do.
  • Property owners and calendars

    By R Starling
    The HomeAway app is convenient, but there are a few things that could make it better. One very important thing that HomeAway needs to do is punish owners w a fee for not updating their calendars on a regular basis. The calendar/app says the property is available, so you submit a request. It can take a day for them to get back to you to say, “Oops, sorry, our days must be crossed. Can you shift your plans ahead 3 days?” Sure, I’ll just call the conference and tell them to postpone everything. And this happens over and over and over until you’ve wasted a week trying to book individual properties. In addition, the search function needs to be improved. It doesn’t include all possible properties, even though they make you think it does. For example, Pasadena & Altadena CA are adjacent cities. If you do a search for Pasadena, you might have 5 Pasadena properties & 1 from Altadena. This leads you to believe that there’s only one in range in Altadena. But then, do a separate Altadena search, and it gives you 4 additional properties! There’s got to be a better way to do the search on your phone.
  • All reviews don’t display in app. Only top ranked and most recent. Also can’t vote on reviews in app

    By SB76totheocean
    There is no way to scroll down in the app to read ALL reviews. You have to go on a pc to the vrbo site to see all the reviews. This is a critical feature that is needed because not everyone has a pc and depends on the app. Very important review information is not seen and this is supposed to be one of the features that’s makes your site appealing. Also you can’t vote on helpfulness in the HomeAway app like you can on the vrbo website. This too is very important as owners can upvote good reviews by using other email addresses to push the good ones to the top. This is what is first seen when you go to reviews in the app. Again another reason why expoaing all reviews in the app is critical. We now have to pay a fee just to book with the site. So it’s time to start delivering features that allow a traveler to make the best informed decision. At some point not exposing all the reviews in the app is likely going to result in liability to homeaway if a decision is made on a property that had the information in a review that homeaway didn’t expose.
  • BEWARE, They are not looking out for you

    By Xmas0421
    After booking previously without issue I found a rental through Home Away for a trip to Vancouver this past summer. I booked and was approved, then the renter contacted me outside of the app and asked to transact directly. It’s a VERY long story but I found this suspicious and asked Home Away for advice and if this was against their policies. Home Away responded that it was not against their policies and that the renter had great reviews and told me not to worry. Long story short, the renter is a HUGE scam artist who took me and many other Home Away customers for a ride. I was able to get a refund, and found other accommodations at 10:00pm at night in a strange city. I did however lose a lot of extra money due to a last minute desperate situation, I was put in harms way because of my dealings with some seriously shady people, and Home Away did NOTHING to help before or after the fact. I have contacted them after the event and sent details and further proof that they had done me and other customers a disservice. I guess they are too busy to be bothered because they never even followed up about my concerns. I will never use this service again.

    NOW HOME AWAY! Expedia aka Home Away charges a “service fee” to the renter(s) based on the price/day x total days you’re booking it for. VRBO let owners post vacation rentals & renters could contact owner directly. We did this for many years for 2 condos in Maui. I recently booked 2 different condos (prior condos were sold) and one owner used a Real Estate company’s property management to handle payments & other “vacation rental” needs on the island as they reside in Washington. Unaware of this till way later. I HAD to enter my cc info to reserve, Home Away bam gets their fee. It also said full payment due at time of booking. Done. NOPE! Got confirmation email from Home Away stating payment received a few times. Days later I get email from H A requesting payment. Then from the property management that I knew nothing about! What a hassle. Because H A stated “full payment at time of booking” and I had a difficult time getting direct contact info for the owner from H A I just found this to be such a hassle! HOME AWAY, owner info needs to be easily accessible with their rental posts! You don’t own these properties!! Just be careful fellow travelers.
  • Communication

    By Smith's From FL
    We don’t care for having to put in our credit card info, just to confirm dates with property manager, then getting charged for each property inquiring on. We had to provide the info, in order to hit send for our message. Originally, we booked & paid for one property. Money came out, we got a confirmation & we thought we were booked/confirmed. But, we got a notice of a refund & a message from property manager/owner that the dates were actually not available, even though the online booking system said that they were & allowed us to book it. Not very happy that happened & that we now have to wait for our refund. So, that is why we are now asking for date verification!! We should not have to have our credit card info charged, until we’ve settled on the property we want. They are booking fast for June and we had to do multiple date availability confirmation requests. Has to be a better way, like it used to be.
  • Easy to use!

    By Roadtrip Steve
    HomeAway is my go to app for all vacation rentals. I have used the app for several years for houses in the Rocky Mountains on ski trip to beach getaways on the East Coast. The app is incredibly user friendly and makes communicating with rental owners about payments, check in procedures and check out a breeze. Recent searches, favorited properties and past trips are saved automatically which helps when looking through the endless options available. Other user reviews are extremely helpful when scoping out your next vacation spot. All properties I have rented through this app have been exactly, if not better, than advertised. In short...I’m hooked on HomeAway. Thank you for making a potentially stressful activity the last thing I worry about every time!
  • Wonderful app!!

    By misslouleelou
    I have a large family and we do our share of traveling. If you require more than one hotel room things get very pricey. I'm top of that, there are no "common areas" to visit with family in most hotel rooms. I love this app because it allows me to reserve homes or condos with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate my family for a fraction of the cost I could pay at any hotel. Every reservation I have made has turned out wonderfully! The reviews are very helpful, and the rates are astounding. I recommend this to anyone traveling out of their home area for more than a couple of nights. You will save money and recognize so many more benefits over staying with a hotel! App is very user-friendly.
  • Barrier Island Tetreat

    By LandreyB
    Barrier Island Retreat is a wonderful place to stay. Two of my daughters and I enjoyed our long weekend getaway so much. This apartment is adorable as well as comfortable, and the owners Deby and John are awesome. They do not hover around, but are always available and very knowledgeable about the area. The location is great, access to the beach very easy and just a short drive to St. Augustine makes Barrier Island Retreat the perfect place to stay. Not having a full kitchen was no problem for us. A very nice grill was available if we had chosen to cookout, but the refrigerator held all the cold foods we brought along and we brewed tea in the microwave. We do plan on making this place one of our go to, home away from home. Thanks again for a wonderful visit!
