BRADENTON, FLORIDA -- The majority of the guests stated that this was the most relaxing wedding reception ever! The house is perfectly placed on the Manatee River and we thoroughly enjoyed the use of the dock. The game room was amazing and the rest of the house was very well kept. What a memorable and wonderful week of memories you allowed us to create with the use of your house. This will be a definite place to rent again in the future. Thank you so much for everything!Add reply
CHATHAM, MASSACHUSETTS -- Owner very blasé about communicating during rental process. Made it seem like I was renting her place and when pressed to do the deal over the span of 10 hours, never returned phone calls or emails. Finally sent an email at 9:30 pm saying her broker already rented the place. Very bad business and interpersonal skills. This is eight days prior to rental period. I guess it never occurred to her that time is rather important when trying to do last minute scheduling. Obviously I would not recommend trying to deal with her.Add reply
Not Pet Friendly

I posted on VRBO for a couple of years, but it really became impossible - they do not have a phone# for customer service, and when you send them an email, it's takes at least a week for them to respond. However. their fees grow with an astronomical progression: it more than doubled in 2 years.

I say - stay away!
GILBERT, ARIZONA -- [The] owner of the residence on 1000 block of N. Sparrow St, Gilbert, AZ, is a poor reflection on how VRBO attempts to conduct its business. After repeated complaints that he had not refunded our security deposit, he finally said he sent it. Weeks later, after further complaints, he said he would reissue a check. He took the cost of the stop check and the overnight express delivery of the check, for a total of $60, out of our refund. Why was it that he had to charge us for these issues? Why was it that he had to send the check in the most expensive way possible, after dragging his boneless heels for MONTHS? I will never do business with that shady man. He is to be pitied.
We are to be reimbursed $60. Thanks for listening. Now, can you do something to help us? Thanks, T.S.
