The cabin was awesome. Beautiful view and the owner was great and responsive to all of my questions or issues I had. I will come back
Great App

Great app to find vacation properties!!
Needs a lot of work
J___. on 6/24/2017
No idea why but this app continues to show an email to an owner when I click on "check for availability" so I can see the total price for certain dates. Fix this nonsense.

This is my first experience with the app. I like everything so far. Virginia Bradshaw
Needs serious improvements
Nancy MacLean Davidson on 6/23/2017
On the negative side: App is often very, very slow to load; App crashes constantly; cannot upload pictures to customer reviews; after clicking to pay, get error message/page so need yo check bank statement to see if payment went through On the plus side: ability to refine search (e.g. for pet friendly properties, parking availability, etc.); ability to add & review customer reviews
Good App
TRIpositiveity on 6/23/2017
I have used this many times, even before they had an app. I have never been disappointed.

Love your APP! Makes it so easy to book reservations! Five Stat for sure!
Always great finds
Ktf42 on 6/23/2017
Genuine reviews and responses from the actual owner of the property. Much better than staying in a hotel chain where the front desk or management have very little interest in ensuring a memorable experience.
Love the app
Temple Shell on 6/23/2017
App is very easy to use and helpful
Great app
Jamesali10 on 6/22/2017
Very useful for booking good vacation rentals. One thing that would help is a defined fee structure for cleaning and other fees as they can range from $0 to $320!
Love this app!
Dajoway2 on 6/22/2017
We just discovered VRBO and Home Away last fall when we booked our first trip. It was a great experience & we will definitely do it again!
The Application never works
CurlieSue4u on 6/22/2017
This application never works. Will not let you update anything. I can use the website and it works just fine. Application is frustrating and seems useless.
Works and it has message to owner
De Fazio on 6/22/2017
This works beautifully and takes CC and message owner, photos and everything. I think I like it more than the website!!!!
Good app

No vacations without it!
Easy to use!
Jesslosee on 6/22/2017
Wonderfully simple and well executed app
Great App - Needs Some Improvement
Weekend Getaway on 6/21/2017
I overall really love the HomeAway app and find it easy to contact property owners and book stays. But there is no way to create new favorited lists within the app (for iPhone). I find that I need to login via a laptop to set up a new list. Frustrating when I am typically perusing between breaks in my day.
Good app
Doby3041 on 6/21/2017
Only complaint is that all costs should be listed on each rentals. No surprises or hidden fees by the owners or property managers.
Good app for renting
amaule on 6/20/2017
I've used this app for over two years now and enjoy the convenience of it. One thing that should be adjusted is the final fee per rental can be slightly higher than the suggested fee when searching for a rental.
Great app
Leskac on 6/20/2017
Love this app. Easy to use! Great properties, great customer service.
Good Service
Gringeiro on 6/20/2017
Only complaint is need to show all costs when advertising. Many of these agencies fool you when they advertise and when you go to actually rent the apartment it actually costs double what they advertise after adding all of the extra fees.
Great app
Mospete on 6/19/2017
Good stuff.

Virginia Grandma on 6/19/2017
I am having difficulty with manager/owner contacting me after receiving verification that property is available. Had excellent success a few years ago renting through VRBO. Would love opportunity to write positive review.
It's like vacation porn!
emeryzane on 6/19/2017
I love the app. It makes looking for and booking trips so easy and enjoyable.
Can't view an email without the app! Really?!
miss'n something here on 6/19/2017
I apparently can't get the necessary info about my upcoming stay without an app it really does not seem to get easier
Great Options Worst App
BB68668 on 6/19/2017
There are many great options when you try to find your dream property for your vacation. However there are a few things to be aware: the cancellation was externally difficult- I haven't figured out how to do it; I followed the instructions but when opened my booking details, there is no cancellation button as said in the instructions. They made it difficult on purpose I guess. The owner was kind enough to cancel my booking from her side. For this reason, I won't use it again unless I am 100% sure that I won't cancel. Second, there are hidden fees you need to know: sheets, towels. Most European property allow smoking so be careful. Third, your credit card will be authorized when you simply want to ask a question before making your decision; Forth, no way to get help. I tried to email them and ask for help with my cancellation, the email always failed !!! Think more before you have to use them.
The best
LarryBettag on 6/19/2017
Love the rating system. Makes each owner accountable and each visit perfect
Shows wrong prices
MondoX1 on 6/18/2017
Time after time, even though I entered my check-in and checkout dates, the app kept showing me average prices for locations that were MUCH lower than the actual prices on my dates. Pretty useless!
This app is useless. Save yourself and use the browser.
Plimsoll on 6/18/2017
There is no apparent way to navigate through. If I am looking for housing, I would like to be able to share the listings I found so we can talk about the possibilities. Finding listings is not hard, nor is adding to 'favorites', but you might want to create a new list for each trip and there is no apparent way to create a new favorites list from the app, and thus no way to email your specific list. You wind up back in the browser if you want to collaborate. If you just want to book for yourself, add a star or two to the rating. I am not getting that far.
Easy to use, but would like edit option
tcollinskeo on 6/18/2017
It is easy to navigate the site. I like the list to return to favorites, but I do wish I could delete selections. Once I have eliminated them as a choice Also it would be nice to make a note if you are comparing places, like this one only has 2 twins beds, or this one no elevator, etc, rather than having to go back to the list of amenities.
Bfogle on 6/18/2017
Love this app
Useful mobility
acemanuel1 on 6/18/2017
I've been using Home Away for years. Decided to download the app for an extensive search I'm doing for a friend. I love the large photos and uncluttered interface. I wish you could apply more than one filter for the type of place or the type of location. I'm sure it'll get better.
Great App!
Sabrina1255 on 6/18/2017
Definitely would recommend this app to anyone.
Works great
Polly329 on 6/17/2017
Easy to navigate and never crashes.
Amazing what apps can do these days
Bevo87 on 6/17/2017
Used this app to look for vacation properties to rent for family trips. I like the details provided and ability to communicate with property owners.
Easy to use
hygienist05 on 6/17/2017
I love this app. It is easy to use and provides all the info you need.
So Simple

Works great
JMGerber on 6/16/2017
Easy to navigate
Love this app
AmyM14 on 6/16/2017
Easy to use and perfect app to find the perfect place!
Great app
JuliaD the awesome!! on 6/16/2017
I used the app and actually prefer it to the web site, quite usable and user friendly.
Love the App BUT...
Kingiscmn on 6/16/2017
The App works as it should and my only complaint really isn't an app issue except you can't trust the "available" dates. We searched found our perfect getaway spot it was available only to get an email saying is hasn't been available that week for months. We found another one and then ANOTHER on and all 3 had the same issue. Great app to find places but you better call directly for dates.
Love the site, not the app.
Travelin' Deb on 6/16/2017
I have resented through HomeAway and VRBO at least a dozen times. Now I have the app. I cannot even see the rooms of the accommodation. Make the app. More like the site.
Haven't had any trouble yet!
The_pug_life_Eyjafjallajökull on 6/16/2017
I haven't had problems with the app. but I love the ease I have been able to find places for my Thanksgiving get-aways
Love it!
Psycho Beast on 6/16/2017
Haven't had a problem in the last two years of using Home Away. Great app!
Handy app
5hell91 on 6/15/2017
Great app
Cost Pricing
1SG Joe on 6/15/2017
No explanation of fee's. How does an average cost of 133.00 equal over $1000.00 for three nights? Not enough honest info to assist in decision making.
Love it
Wismell on 6/15/2017
Very helpful!
The worst
Juan Moore Beer on 6/15/2017
First three properties we tried to book had actual costs between 3 and 7 times the advertised costs
Very useful
Nanderson8185 on 6/15/2017
Great app, very easy to use. Easy to communicate with rental owners and book a rental all in one place. Intuitive app.
