HomeAway

Hi.

We are still searching. Has anyone used or booked thru HomeAway.com?

Many do not have any ratings or guest comments.

All advice appreciated.

There are numerous rental places in Palm Springs if you hesitate to go direct. Google some and look at their web pages.

You may get a better deal going direct!

HomeAway and VRBO are actually owned by the same people and will soon be combined. They are used by thousands of people every day and are generally very highly thought of. But, as with any public site, do your homework. Email the property owner, ask specific questions such as:

Are the photos on your website current and were they actually taken in or from the unit?

Do you use a professional management company; if not, how are problems emergencies handled?

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

When and how is payment due?

Does your price include cleaning fees, security deposit, and tax?

Many owners will also list a phone number where you can talk to them in person. If you're not completely comfortable with the answers you get, look elsewhere!

Hope you get all the answers you want and have a wonderful trip!

We used Homeaway for a holiday above Soller Majorca this year and I can tell you if all the villas are like this then we will never need a hotel again! We arrived late and next morning we awoke to the most spectacular views. The pool was incredible and also the surroundings . We had to rent a car but you really cannot miss the splendour of Majorca. The villa had just about everything you could want.

Glad you got a good deal on VRBO. We've been using them for years. Just got back from Maui using a condo, and this weekend booked our week at Thanksgiving. We always talk directly to the owner.

All I can say is that we had one of the best holidays with a villa in Mjorca. It was lovely and for once no stomach bugs!

Homeaway is certainly one of the better vacation rental by owner sites and has a huge selection of properties. However, in the event you don't find what you are looking for there, you can find a list of alternative sites on All Holiday Rentals.

http://www.all-holiday-rentals.com/

There are more than 50 different sites listed, including Homeaway, VRBO, Flipkey and many others.
