Perfect getaways

Every booking has been amazing.
Search criteria doesn’t work
Alwaystraveling55 on 5/23/2018
Trying to locate properties where we can bring our pets and I click the pet option and get results that then say no pets allowed. Frustrating and time consuming which makes app not useable if the sorting features not accurate.
Cozy cabin
R and C Waeckerle on 5/23/2018
We have been thinking about retiring in a tiny home, this was a great test and it passed with flying colors! It Was cozy and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much for the great stay!

Love it!
Love the app
nXn Salon on 5/23/2018
Easy to navigate, love the ability to check dates and book through app.
Was once a great app, not now
Ohiodr on 5/23/2018
Use this app for trips approximately 6 times a year. Have loved this app for years. With the last update, it was supposed to eliminate bugs. Unfortunately, the app was made worse. We frequently travel with pets. The filter hasn’t worked in over a week. I don’t know anyone who has the time to view over 1000 available properties, only to find several hundred allow dogs. It is a huge waste of time. Until that is fixed, I will be using other apps and sites.
Lily672 on 5/22/2018
South Haven, MI - Torch Lake, MI - HILTON HEAD ISLAND (x2) - SANTA FE, NM - SAN DIEGO, CA. = 6 successful vacations through VRBO. The search takes time and patience because there are hundreds of choices. I can’t plan a trip in one hour. It takes me up to three days. Figure your budget by what a nice motel would cost for the same # of days including taxes. Use the VRBO “Filters” and read the reviews. Fill in the “hearts” for your favorites. You can thank me later.
Doesn’t save favorites
Sailorgirl20 on 5/21/2018
I spent 4 hours searching for a place Saved several in my favorites. Log in2 days later and the file is empty. What a joke
Hot/wheels on 5/21/2018
I love the HomeAway app. I use this for all my big vacations. I haven’t been let down yet.
The best
Broadkill Beach Broads on 5/21/2018
Even when it’s raining. Sit down dinners, gas fireplace on a chilly night. Great just playing games and relaxing with friends!!!! Now imagine the sun shining and you’ve got it all!!!

sjminkis on 5/20/2018
I don’t like that I have to enter my credit card information in order to be able to ask host a question about their property.
Pets filter not working
jhclttiger on 5/20/2018
Filtered to include Pets in rentals. Spent a long time reviewing results and all that I contacted said they do not allow pets.
Needs to improve Pronto!
Lolalluvia on 5/19/2018
There are things I like about the app, like saving my favorites, but I want to be able to delete the properties I don't want anymore or the messages in the inbox. I asked a question on one property and next thing I know is that the owner is requesting payment and it shows in My Trips even though I have not booked it. Need to improve ASAP

Always Delivers on 5/19/2018
HomeAway is the first app I reach out to when trying to book a home away from home. It continues to deliver the best properties.
Excellent App
Student Nurse moo moo on 5/19/2018
We’ve used Home Away several times and never had any problems. The accommodations have always been as expected, if not better!
Fake Listings
Brendan1632 on 5/19/2018
Home Away is endorsing fake listings for research. Complete waste of of my time.
Absolutely spectacular!
amymarieburke on 5/19/2018
We were blown away when we walked into this beautifully appointed guest home. There was nothing lacking and everything was pristine, new, and of highest quality. Joerg was an outstanding host and was gracious about letting us stay another night. We certainly hope to be back. Plenty of room for privacy and to stretch out with 3 full bedrooms and baths. The hot tub and sauna are in the guest house, although the salt water pool is part of the main house. Property is less than a mile from a wonderful breakfast and lunch cafe, although the refrigerator and pantry were full of breakfast supplies had we chosen to make it. There was both an Expresso and a coffee maker. Just cannot say enough good things about this wonderful place.
Pet Filters
YankeeGirl65 on 5/18/2018
Pet filters dog work, I have to click on each property to find pet info.
Use all the time so easy and have found the best properties
MissyMojo31 on 5/18/2018
I use VRBO/Home Away all the time. Have booked rentals in Puerto Rico, Pennsylvania, upstate NY, LBI and Manahawkin which is our summer getaway location! It’s so easy to use and the reviews are so helpful. I have yet to be disappointed.
Easy to book
PC joey on 5/17/2018
This app makes viewing and booking properties very easy!
No response
2doubledrops on 5/17/2018
Is it common to go through all of the steps and set up payment only to never here back from the property owner? Not cool.
All reviews don’t display in app. Only top ranked and most recent. Also can’t vote on reviews in app
SB76totheocean on 5/17/2018
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.
Renter can’t review property after 2 weeks
Prophetica on 5/16/2018
VRBO would not allow me to review a property after two weeks from the end of the vacation. This means a lot of people will be unable to accurately review a property if they’re otherwise traveling. I will use Expedia next time. My review for the property was going to be great.
Chastity 92 on 5/16/2018
Very happy using this app!
Can’t book
dkozee on 5/15/2018
App will not book. Keeps telling me to try again later
Pinksmiley on 5/15/2018
This apparently is a scam site! I booked a property got a confirmation email and 3 days later i got an email saying this property only did Saturday to Saturday. I searched more and found another one. It gave me instant confirmation. They took my payment of $2400. Got an email 2 days later they canceled yet again. I called to see what’s going on because the money was already taken out. The representative said she couldn’t help me I would have to call back in a few hours to talk to someone else. I asked if they could call me back and no they don’t do that. So now they have already taken my money, we have no where to stay and now I doubt they will have anything available. I would NEVER book from here again!
Nick Sterling
lefranco on 5/14/2018
As a whole I enjoy HomeAway and vrbo BUT as possible renters there should be an option to report idiots like Nick Sterling in Bogotá, Colombia for whom we submit reservations repeatedly and they never respond or accept. HOMEAWAY drop Nick Sterling’s property (ies) from your site!!!
Crash city
Jejdjdjdjdjddjdjjdjdwkalxnrjdo on 5/14/2018
App crashes frequently tries to force you to buy things you don’t want garbage.
Quick and Easy.
Rooferjosh on 5/14/2018
Love this app. It’s the fastest way to find what your looking for.
Great experience
Mami on Vacation on 5/13/2018
The site provides us with excellent reviews and is organized very well. I am not that savvy with new technology and I still felt comfortable in making my selection and trusting the booking process. Thank You. 😍
Low ball advertisement
Marvjr on 5/13/2018
Did search for no higher than 700 night the place came up for $500 night then when booking it changed to like $9600 for 7 days. Not good

Nothing intuitive about this site...
Seriously Frustrated Traveler on 5/13/2018
If you have enough patience, you will eventually find your way. If you leave the page and not book immediately, you will find yourself having to resubmit all the required information before reaching your goal. Tedious. After spending hours to book a simple 4 day rental, I realized I need a vacation... I considered leaving no stars, but gave them one only because they have some great properties.
420 Mountain Air-Franklin
lovetheplace on 5/13/2018
An absolutely perfect place to relax and enjoy quiet time. The property is very clean and modern/rustic. Bathrooms are new and all amenities are there, towels, travel size shampoo etc and all cooking utensils (even though we didn’t use any). Would highly recommend this as a great place to stay....
Best app for booking vacation homes
ChiGalBlu on 5/13/2018
I use a number of travel apps and this one is my favorite. It’s very easy to use and I love that it saves my preferences so I don’t have to enter them every single time I start a new search. It’s also nice that you can search by a general area (ie Florida Panhandle), which is not something I’ve found on other popular apps.
Bait and switch
Sempreoral on 5/13/2018
My wife and I, both in our 70’s, bit on a $200 per night apt., all fees included, for three nights and then awaited confirmation from the owner. An hour later an email from the owner said, sorry, but another $500 security fee would necessary. We declined, and received a quick reply offering to drop the security fee. We are definitely NOT interested. Also, this review is the only way I found to let Home Away know what happened. Their customer service is not transparent. I had a good experience with Home Away a few years ago, so I am hoping they can return to functionality.
Pay screen
radoxey on 5/12/2018
Seems to be a rush to collect a payment. I needed more info, but it took me three visits to this property before I found a screen that would simply allow me to ask a question. VERY annoying.
Best app I’ve ever used
Too much to click on! on 5/12/2018
This may be the best app I’ve ever used. The filters work flawlessly, give all the right options, getting a rental was quick and easy, no unnecessary steps. Great experience!
Not allowing booking
Schatzie1 on 5/12/2018
Continuously tried booking on-line; server must be down. Customer service # not answering either. Painful experience
Property Details
tw-dub on 5/10/2018
It would be helpful if property details were still available for viewing after the property is booked. When I click the property details link it says “The property is unavailable. We’ve removed this property at the owner’s request.”
Inaccurate prices
eeveer on 5/9/2018
Why aren’t the actual prices per night listed ?
Easy to use vacation rental app
Nanadw on 5/8/2018
I put through my reservation quickly and easily. Many thanks!

Apple Pay not working. I called my bank everything was good on there side but not processing on theirs

We are trying to find a big enough cabin with no luck. Praying for one to be available for us.
HomeAway app
minkeyo on 5/8/2018
I have had to submit request 3 times because your site was not working correctly. Very frustrating for the owner and myself.
Simplicity is my style!!!
Creativechristina on 5/8/2018
So easy and reliable!!!
The App is great, customer service call in not so much
cdgcdgcdg3848 on 5/7/2018
I tried to reserve a place online and began having issues every time I went to hit “book now”. I then proceeded to call the number that was listed on the webpage. After 20 minutes of talking to 2 different people and not even getting past spelling my name 8 different times, I hung up. Jumped on the app on my phone and had the place booked in less than 3 minutes. Guess technology really wins here.

Renters minimum age
alkosnf g on 5/6/2018
Love the convenience of being able to rent homes through an app did not like that minimum age requirement was not posted on our main page for renters.
sjmeador on 5/6/2018
We have stayed at 5 homes now and have been pleased with each home. There is not one complaint about any of the homes. The owners have been great!
