HomeAway is great 5/5
No issues. I recommend HomeAway.
I've used Homeaway for several years and have rented around 10 times. I have never had a bad experience. It is the way to go if you are traveling with a family!
Excellent application 5/5
Easy booking apartments.
Love it! 5/5
Easy to use and navigate!
Great for families 5/5
I have rented homes through HomeAway several times. Usually ends up being cheaper than the 2-3 hotel rooms we would need. If we stayed in 1 room all together, wouldn't be much of a "vacation", lol!! I can't imagine vacationing without HomeAway.
Wonderful and Easy to Use 5/5

Love it. Used it now for 4 years. Wish more people knew about and put their properties on it.
Never had a problem.
Using it again for winter/2018.
Terrible and dangerous 1/5
This is the first time I'm using this app.
I've tried booking a property (1000 usd/night, 4 nights). Without any reason, it timed out and it was unable to complete the reservation. So far so good, bugs happen. Next, I tried again. The app didn't let me, saying the dates are now reserved. Fine, another bug. Up to this point, my credit card has now pending 600 usd, but I have no trip reserved. Fine.
The owner now contacts me, saying he can actually make the reservation for me. Fine, let's do it. And here is the terrible and dangerous aspect: the owner had access to all my credit card information, and was able to charge the full amount without me providing any extra information to him. Airbnb never gives credit card information to owners!!! This guy received it and charged it directly, from a FAILED transaction!
Now, I have about 5000 usd pending on my card, but no receipt whatsoever, and of course no trip appears as "booked" in the app. Keep in mind the owner and property are in Greece. If he "forgets" that I made a reservation what recourse do I have?
Greeks are generally honest and helpful people, but still, whoever designed this app, oh boy.

Complete and Easy to Use 5/5
By Dr. Noel
We have had nothing but positive experiences with HomeAway lodging and customer support, and Infeel this app is easier to use in some ways than the website. I never have to go to the website to find details, everything is always there, and once I have viewed the options and made a decision, I have a reservation request in under 2 minutes every time. Thanks, HomeAway!
Easy to use, great pictures, and maps 5/5
Love the Home Away app and experience!
Couldn't sign in. Error 1/5
Downloaded ok but won't let me sign in.
Awesome. Way better than AirBnb... 5/5
Love this app. Best functions.
Bad Experience 1/5
I'm currently in Buenos Aires staying in an apartment brokered from Home Away. It clearly states under the property description that it includes a clothes dryer and dish washer. Both are non existent. I contacted the property manager and was told that because the wash machine has a good spin cycle, this counts towards a dryer and that I can hang my clothes outside. This is absolutely unacceptable.
I sent an email to Home Away and have not received a response. In my opinion, this reflects very, very negatively on Home Away. I would not recommend their listings to anyone.

By Pedro Amaral
The App is what you expect and, since the date of the rental info is present, it is easy to see what owners are paying attention.
Best site for vacation homes 5/5
I have been using HomeAway for all our vacation planning for many years. It is the best source out there for finding vacation homes!
Great app 4/5
Although the stock of housing is not necessarily always as sterile as Air B&B, it is easy to find something that works for us when we go on vacation.
First time user 5/5
I love how user-friendly this app is and how simple it was to make my first reservation. Looking forward to many more.

Like a sheep on limestone. Ewe Rock!
Better quality of listings 5/5
I've now used homeaway over Airbnb and booking.com twice now because of the quality of listings and personal contact I've got back from the owners or whomever is taking care of the house. The information on the listings and the willingness to work with groups is fantastic. I would like for more PayPal acceptance. Because sometimes like if I'm booking for Greece, the charge is in Ireland. My CC company doesn't think it's fraud. But. Still love the site.
Best way to book 5/5
I fully agree with folks who say this is better than AirBnB. More listings and better selection through this app!
Great Options Worst App 1/5
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.
Very impressive 5/5

Great app! fast and convenient
Great app! 4/5
By Sally B
Works easily. If I could ask for one thing, it'd be to add trips I've already booked to the 'my trips' page. Currently I only see past trips there.
Use another provider 1/5
By Chris O R
Booked a rental property through HomeAway, but after taking our booking and payment the lessor insisted on additional and not previously stated costs (as "lessee insurance"). HomeAway's response was basically, too bad, speak to the lessor, here is her phone number... This is very poor service - and poor support for renters.
Get this app if you are an owner - as then you can potentially run roughshod over potential clients, if there are any left (because they haven't had the sense to switch to AirBnB or another provider...).
If you're looking to rent then find another service provider, one that wants a longer term relationship with its user base.
Awesome app!!!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 5/5

The best app out there!!!
Great App 5/5
Very easy and convenient to use.
Makes my vacations so easy 5/5
The app helps me find great places to stay wherever and whenever I travel.
App is awesome. Since it updated every time you click on your trip and try to go into the information it says "error submitting request". Annoying! Please fix!
False Advertising!! 1/5
The app itself is simple enough to use but the site is very deceptive. Every time I've tried to book a property the price doubles and sometimes triples. Every. Time. Not once has the price advertised been the actual price. They also charge a fee so if you contact the seller directly, you will get a significant discount. Very disappointed with the shady way they conduct business.
