Input on vacation rental

Hello TA community!

I was wondering if anyone has booked this apartment or worked with its landlord before:

http://www.vrbo.com/1088997a

I sent an inquiry to the owner, to which Agnes (the owner) promptly replied with reservation/payment details, and said to let her know if I had any additional questions. I e-mailed her back as I did have a few additional questions before making any payment. It has been 3 days and I haven't heard back from her yet. I'm not sure what to do. How long should I wait to hear back from the owner? Since she request the deposit to be made through HomeAway, should I go ahead and make the deposit before hearing back from her? I'm hesitent to make a payment towards an apartment when I haven't had all my questions answered, not knowing what kind of recourse there would be if something wasn't right. All the reviews of her/the apartment are positive, but it still feels like I am taking a risk. Any input/advice you all could offer would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

P.S. I have a phone number but have not tried calling it yet. Let me know if you think it best that I try to reach her there if she hasn't responded to e-mail.

For some reason, I thought that was June 14th. My mistake, thank you for bringing that to my attention!
