Easy to use!
Roadtrip Steve on 8/20/2018
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!
Bad Changes
dmkharris on 8/20/2018
Now when an owner blocks dates on the app, you are NOT allowed to unblock them or make changes on the app. This is not acceptable.
Realizable

Been using this app for a few years now. It has never let me down!

I love having options other than hotels!!
Help
Nancosh on 8/17/2018
Can’t get any information for help. We spent an hour in urgent care due to wasp stings at the house we rented. Can’t find a number or chat or email to get help.
Easy to navigate, plan your lodging in minutes
PennsylvaniaJackie on 8/17/2018
My title says it all - have fun!
Misleading Includes chain hotels and no lodging locations!!
PlasmaNM on 8/17/2018
In addition to the exorbitant fees that other reviewers have noted, the listings include event hosting locations that sleep NO-ONE, but misrepresent the capacity as lodging. Absolutely unacceptable.
Who cares about the app is their customer service is ATROCIOUS!!
Metatron32 on 8/16/2018
2nd attempt to use: We could not make our reservation due to the wild fire smoke since my husband was recently hospitalized for respiratory illness. The booker REFUSED to even ATTEMPT to re-book the house in the middle of August at the height of tourist season!!!! I find it maliciously UNETHICAL and am astonished that the booker and homeowner would be so foul!!! How Pathetic!!! 1st attempt to use this co: I rented a vacation rental through this app and the renter would not respond to my request for a refund so I contacted customer service for support. It took them a couple of weeks to respond to my inquiry!! And then their response was lame saying that they were busy! The only reason why I would book through a third-party like this and not directly with the property owner is for a sense of security. However, given this absolutely disgustingly atrocious customer service, I cannot recommend them or an app that supports them!
Dont use these app its a scam!!!!!!!!!
Yaisbelis on 8/16/2018
Please dont use these app i had the worst experience with this people. I rented a home with my family and i received a confirmation and everything in my email and when i got to the home i could not get in because these app had not notified the people that i was coming or that i rented that home for the weekend and i was sitting outside the property with my family for 5 hours until 2:30 am and they still didn't get me into the house after i had already paid. DO NOT USE THESE APP ITS A SCAM !!!
Bait and switch
742ontherd on 8/16/2018
I hate lies and bate and switch people. Almost every listing i looked at said no min stay. When i hit ck the dates all of them forced a min stay of 3-7 nights. Wasted my time and unethical.
Not user friendl
Bevy621 on 8/16/2018
This app use to be very user friendly. Since they updated I can’t seem to such browse in different locations without settings dates. If I do set them it tells me Oops!! Try again. I am not happy with this app. I will find another app to use.
Best Way to See the World
Feelin' Fine on 8/15/2018
My wife and I used to think we needed to move abroad to truly experience life in different cultures. With HomeAway, you get the chance to live, dine, and explore cities around the world with a true sense of place.
Good but...
Sparty27 on 8/13/2018
Should be able to select more options and requirements like the web site.
Good App
Chino112233 on 8/13/2018
It's a really good app and the prices and offers wonderful.
Angry renter
parkermat on 8/12/2018
I’m not posting much. But I do want homeaway to know that I don’t appreciate them not posting the review I already posted. Seeing that I booked a week stay at the beach. And someone else booked it under a listing that was supposed to be removed. Needless to say...I had no place to stay when I arrived at the beach and homeaway claims NO RESPONSIBILITY WHATSOEVER!!! If you don’t post, I will post on websites you advertise on that will get this point across. And I am persistent for sure. Especially after this incident!!!
Improving
Sam91344 on 8/12/2018
At one of your listings the price per day is shown to be $177. For a fourteen day stay the owner wanted a total of approximately $4,000. The price per day should be closer to reality.
Annoying
Wbpi on 8/11/2018
You put in dates to search and it gives you results that may not even be available. You have to renter the dates, what’s the point. Looking at Msp view doesn’t change the search.
Parking
spottspott on 8/11/2018
I always need a parking space everywhere I go. This needs to be included in the filters. I will not rent a place if I don’t know the parking situation. S and the nick name is annoying
Easy App!
Amyoddo on 8/10/2018
I love the HomeAway app! So easy to book your vacation on the go!
Dates
marti428 on 8/10/2018
I would appreciate a general search for the dates that I select, only showing me units that are available on the dates that I select. Not show me all available units and then having to see if it’s actually truly available for the dates that I need.
Big Bear Lake Home @ 523 Paine Ct. 92315
Jr the Balley Guy on 8/9/2018
I normally don’t complain about accommodations that I rent for vacations. But this time is an exception. I would not rent this property ever again. Our extended family (14), rented this property for a 4 day stay, and wound up leaving after only 3 days due to the condition. Was not clean by anyone’s standards. Floors and floor coverings were dirty(floors) stained and dirty(floor coverings). Although advertised to accommodate 16, there were only 6 place settings of dishes, I guess we should eat in shifts! The property had no air conditioning which we weren’t told and we had a new born and the daytime temp in high 80’s-low 90’s. Some windows didn’t have screens so we couldn’t open windows due to mosquitoes! Very disappointing experience!

Comfortable, well-appointed home in a quiet neighborhood close to Kelly Beach via bicycle, 2 new bikes provided by owner. Enjoyed sitting at the picnic table watching rabbits, listening to songbirds in AM. Highly recommended! JHochman
Pet filter
whattheheck222 on 8/9/2018
I selected in the filter for places that allow pets. Then, upon making a selection it says pets aren’t allowed. Filtered should have tossed this property out of population. Very frustrating.
Protects Scam HomeOwners
Home of Scammers on 8/8/2018
Someone needs to sue this company. They have provided a way for scammers to scam the public out of millions of dollars with no recourse. It is shameful.

Have been impressed with the app and the suggested places for vacation spots that fit to what we are looking for...makes lining up very easy and plenty of info on the places ...
Bad app

Home Away is the Best!
Rachel and Danny on 8/7/2018
Have used Home Away in the past, it’s much better than other vacation rental sites and user friendly. Always have had a positive experience with both the property and the owners.
Map view
Jordamaniac on 8/6/2018
Your map view does not connect to your show listings on the iPhone. Please fix.
Cavanaugh Bay Rental- Coolin, ID
Suze - Washington state on 8/6/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It was so comfortable and homey and you could tell that the owners take great pride in making their home beautiful for renters. It is spacious and well stocked. Our grandkids played the board games every day. They especially enjoyed lively games of Life and Monopoly. They brought their inner tubes and floated down the stream and swam and fished at a secluded beach. They were especially competitive golfing at Priest Lake golf course. Oh, yes, we are now addicted to huckleberry milkshakes. What they said when we left?....”This is what memories are made of!”.
Deeplinking is poor
Monet599 on 8/5/2018
Not only does it force you to go to the app, it also doesn’t open it from a link sent via email in the app when you already have it downloaded. It makes you go to the App Store, open it there, then doesn’t even take you directly to the property the link is for. Poor user experience.
Booking fees are outrageous
Fr8ho on 8/3/2018
I booked a condo for 10 days through HomeAway the total for rental $8k including fees paid directly to VACASA which I found out about after I did the book now. Then I got a second charge from HomeAway for and additional $400 in booking fees. I’m sure HomeAway is charging the owners to post on their site and also charging travelers fees too. #ripoff.
Glitching
Kate2950 on 8/3/2018
Lately the app is glitching. I click on a name and it comes up with a blank on the conversation page and overview page. The payment page says the traveler didn’t arrange a booking. However she did and paid and checks in two days from now. I don’t know what is going on but please fix to make it easy to work with our customers!

The app won’t let me scroll down as I type a message to the owner
Cottage on Fifth in Black Mtn. NC
KathyandPaul on 8/2/2018
Perfect cottage to stay in. Owner is sooo nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The cottage was cute and extremely clean. We had a wonderful restful getaway. I will attempt to stay there again!
Availability
Groupie SB on 8/2/2018
I don’t recall having this challenge with VRBO before, I set my dates - which is 3 nights, number of people etc in the filters, the properties coming up say they’re available but then when I try to book it says 7 night minimum! Or on the first place it’s listed it says no minimum and then when you click into the details it says there is a minimum. Frustrating!! It’s Florida and I’m trying to book during hurricane season And now many of the listings have a no refund cancellation policy, how ridiculous is that?
Best way to book a vacation
DMG Granite on 8/2/2018
I have booked three trips through the app... super easy and all trips were flawless. Loyal customer!!!
Booking rentals
snoopy1jo on 8/1/2018
I cannot book a rental on my phone OR my laptop if I am logged into my account on Home Away. I have used VRBO for many years and never had a problem before. The last 4 bookings I have made, I had to either call for the reservation or log out of my account and book it without being logged in. I contacted customer service. Their reply had me clear cookies etc, which I did to no avail. I am disappointed in this app at this point. JoAnn Langford
Bad property owners
SJP9000 on 7/31/2018
Renter cancelled my booking on the grounds of needing more money app does not screen their property owners well enough. I have also ran into scam rentals on here too.
Recent stay at 1099188
angie0598 on 7/30/2018
Would highly recommend this place! Just enough for two couples or parents and two children. Right across from public beach Access and can view the beach from the porch. Very clean and owner is exceptional to work with. We will definitely be back!
App is set up silly!
jimmythom2003 on 7/30/2018
Can’t flip through listings via map like Zillow, very annoying. But the worst part is if you are looking at cost it doesn’t really arrange it to include fees so there’s no way to know the difference in price unless you click on the request to book or calendar, makes it very inconvenient. They should have the price per night includes by all fees and taxes, otherwise it’s just silly!
Easy easy easy...
Simp2coo on 7/29/2018
We almost exclusively use this app and have been very pleased in every situation with every owner and the personal touches. It’s pretty cool to be able to talk to the owners of the different properties and read the reviews and check out the properties. We have a lot of favorites and a lot of properties that will definitely go back to. Thank you home away!

water board on 7/29/2018
Washer was being worked on when we arrived .Apartment size washer for 12 people. We had no washer while we were at whiteshell. Huge hole in floor of swimming pool deck along with the pool deck needing to be painted because of splinters. If it had not been for management on n. Captiva we would have really complained No outside shower . One shower head was in the mud . The shower had been torn down. The second outside shower was for washing sand off feet .this shower had three sides Kayak s did not work. Also smell of sewage as you drove into our yard
Booking Easy
LaKamib on 7/29/2018
Booking this trip was fast and easy!! I will write another review after my trip to let everyone know how the checkin, location, home and everything else goes.
Inconsistent Service
LightAxe on 7/29/2018
Homes are listed at a price and then owners charge more in person or demand high deposits that weren't disclosed in advance and HomeAway censors negative reviews.
First time using app
ZTE94zae00 on 7/29/2018
It's simple way to book a place! Love it and look forward to using it again!

Love it

Sister Bay Condo
E & A Meyer on 7/28/2018
We have yet to be disappointed by any one of our stays. I will continue to highly recommend Door County to anyone who asks about our trips here. Quiet, peaceful, walking distance to all of our favorite places!
Not transparent & HomeAway not accountable
Olympia98502 on 7/28/2018
Not only is there lacking transparency but when there is a problem with property ...the frustration is neither the “owner” nor the corporation /care & one has already paid everything upfront so there is no recourse. Soon after “the owner” declared bankruptcy & I list $2500 for rental & of course HomeAway had never even gone to inspect property with list of my complaints...including cameras, no heat, $ everything but child-friendly.
Issue
