Best Options 5/5
VRBO has the most, and best listings compared to other sites. I like the ease of plugging in my filters to narrow my search down.
Works well for reservations, but msg issues 4/5
This app works well finding information you need, is intuitive, and is straight-forward. I had an issue with the app when arriving to our rental. While other parts of the app worked, the message section wouldn’t open, and critical checkin information was unable to be opened. While the cell signal was weak, it didn’t make sense the other parts of the app worked at the time. Seems like messages could be available offline or in a cache.
Much better than AirBnB 5/5
Many more filters than ABNB. Easy to use.
Misrepresented rates 2/5
It is so frustrating to put a max nightly rate in to have properties come up, only to find that not one night during the whole year is the advertised nightly rate. That or the extra fees that are tacked on doubles the nightly rate. This is why I booked direct last year and saved a ton. So disappointing when owners lie to get their homes viewed.
Don’t do it!!!! 1/5
Very misleading info on property now I’m being told there are NO refunds on bookings!!!
My vrbo owner won’t return my email and when I contact customer service it is automated and I cannot get help.
No response 1/5
By Dolores Maya
No answer from owner
The website shows all the amenities but then you find out because I went through you all there is no access to the water park for my grandbabies
Great app 5/5
By Love solitair
It actually lets you search for exactly what you want
Love the options 3/5
This app is great for searching for vacation rentals, but could be so much better if you could see the total cost instead of the daily rate. The daily rate means nothing when the fees are so high.
Wedding celebration 5/5
We stayed four nights at Walker Key F17 and it was perfect. We took our six year old with us to enjoy my sons wedding. It was quiet, as if we were the only ones there. Very beautiful inside. Exceptionally clean. Everything was well stocked for our “home away from home”. Easy check in and check out. We loved the layout of the bedrooms and the large master bath with a jacuzzi type tub. Plenty of storage space as well. Very modern. We are planning to go back in the fall and we will certainly check to see if this is available first! There was a beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony, “off the beaten path”. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a larger condo at a great rate!
Great place 5/5
Totally nice to rest and relax.
Site is frustrating to use 2/5
By #1 ScrabbleMom
We used to enjoy the VRBO site and used it frequently. Now the site is frustrating to use. Would be much better if it only showed you places that are available for your selected dates
Vest traveling site 5/5
I have uses this website for years and have always been pleased
Dr. B. Scott & Melinda Winkler 5/5
By BIG DADDY WINK
Looking forward to once again using VBRO, who had yet to fail our annual vs actions.
More transparency please 3/5
It would be very helpful and beneficial for me to easily see the name of the condo, the floor and Until # ! I don’t like being in the dark and have to jump through unnecessary hoops to know what the condo number is and where in the building it’s located. I know Panama City Beach and Destin and Pensacola very well since I have been visiting the Gulf for 30 years ! I just need to know the name of the resort, unit #, location within the building and the price and availability so I can quickly see what’s available for me when I want to visit.
Gotten good results. 5/5
A few years ago, our son suggested I check out VRBO and I did and have used them since. Haven’t had a bad experience yet and that says a lot. We have had terrible results a couple of times with other ‘big time’ places.
Limited selection, prices are outrageous, Airbnb is ten times better. If you select a price range be prepared to pay at least 5 times that. I thought some of the cleaning fees on Airbnb we high. The “management fees are more than the actual rate of the place! Then all the other fees on top of that!
Makahuena. E-1307 5/5
By hip senior
We’re really enjoying our stay at this condo in Poipu Beach, Kauai. It’s quiet, comfortable, well equipped and maintained. I listen to the waves crashing at night as I fall asleep. There’s no a/c but plenty of fans and 3 large ceiling fans that keep the 2 story condo comfortable. Also it’s nice to have a washer/dryer on our 12 night stay.
Could be a lot better 2/5
It’s not as good as the Airbnb app. Should have refund policy viewable.
Also should make owners describe the bedding of each room aka queen/ twin/ pullout bed.
Always find what you want where you want ! 5/5
The VRBO app is a great addition to the website it’s very easy to navigate extremely easy to contact homeowners and to make a reservation !
App keeps going black and closing 1/5
I have deleted and reinstalled. Nothing but issues!!!
Missing some key search features 3/5
This is a pretty good travel app overall. I’m frustrated about a few things, however, and want to pass them on to the developers. (1) Add a button next to the heart (favorite) symbol to allow us to remove a property from a list if we’ve already ruled it out. I would suggest an “X”. I can’t remember which properties I’ve already considered, especially if I cant return to my search for several days. (2) Add the dates for travelers reviews. I take recent reviews more seriously than reviews that are a year old, for example. I think the property managers would like this as well since it allows them to recover from a bad review. (3) Break down “washer dryer” into two pieces - in unit and shared. I won’t stay someplace without a w/d in the unit and there is currently no way to find this out without contacting the property managers. (4) Break down the “free parking” filter into free onsite, on street, and valet. Again, it is nearly impossible to know the parking specifics without contacting the manager.
Hope this helps. I love VRBO and have been an owner and traveler for 20 years.
I love going thru VRBO to find our vacation rentals. They're easy to deal with, the VRBO site shows you all the information needed to book a property suited to individual needs!
Chat is HORRIBLE 3/5
That is all.
This website is virtually worthless. I have already booked a week and cant get answer on house code parking or any arrival information.
Life of Riley 5/5
I’m booking a condo two months out for a golf tournament with my brothers
This was beyond easy it was simple and explainable
If only I could play golf as smooth as this experience
I would be breaking par all the time
By Bruce 1954
Working with Douglas was a great experience. He was very helpful and went out of his way to correct issues with VRBO process. He would be great to rent from too.
Great time. 5/5
The house is very nice and plenty of sleeping space. We all had a great time. I would definitely rent this one again.
Don’t use VRBO 1/5
I have been an owner and renter and no longer recommend this app. In the beginning, five years ago, it was great. Now, there are so many restrictions on how and when an owner/renter can contact guest/owner. It is all designed around profit for VRBO. Owners have become merely pawns to help make VRBO profits.
Love Vrbo 5/5
By Blessed 37 Ways
Love how easy vrbo is to use
Beware of Additional Fees 3/5
Boarding on deception the price per night often is 50% or more once fees are added than what Vrbo advertises on the page. Renter beware. VRBO this would be an easy fix if transparency was of value to your company.
VRBO fees are too high these days! 4/5
I’ve been booking with VRBO for several years now. I like the ease of use. I just think VRBO has gotten greedy with its fees.
Love the app hate the fake reviews & censorship 1/5
I want to say I love vrbo, it’s the best app to pick a rental. However I am irritated that the home I rented was not as it was described, even though they have only 5 star reviews. So I get back from staying in this dump that was actually a downstairs apartment & after getting my $1000 deductible back I write a lengthy, accurate review and it never gets posted. Had I seen actual reviews I would have never paid $1300 to stay here for the weekend. Please stop allowing the home owner to approve which review gets posted. Or go and check the home out yourself because I WAY OVERPAID. I wish I could post pics here.
We have a home booked in RI this summer and so far nothing related to that trip is saved in the app!! I have received communication from the owner but I can’t simply click on “trips” or even the mail icon to see my messages. THEN I had to re-signin which required changing my password (I never even logged out!)! Great app for finding a rental but NOT for much else! So disappointed!
No credit 2/5
By insensed mark
Not getting credited with paying the exorbitant security deposit of $3000 which was paid on May 6. No communication from the owner LeBlanc or VRBO. Not happy about this lapse in communication.
By Far Best Rental Unit on the Beach 5/5
By Florabama Luxury Unit
I’ve rented several units for many years but this Luxury Unit is just as advertised. Will put as priority to plan our trips around this units availability.
Quick easy way to go on fun family adventures 5/5
Great homes, affordable, reliable service!! Highly recommended
Need more details as to locations of properties. Most are very obscure
Lack of review transparency 2/5
we are very disappointed with the removal of the dates from the reviews.
Why hide the info? It is disappointing to both owners and travelers a like.
I am both.
Why hide this info?
Say Where 1/5
Absolutely horrible trying to see these places without addresses. Done with HRBO
I can’t get in contact with the owner I’ve asked 3 times to be contacted and nothing I’m trying to book but I won’t book without some type of contact first. Smh
The Hardens 5/5
VRBO is our go to for traveling!!! We have used this site for stays in Galena IL, Maui HI Lake of the Ozarks numerous times as well as Waco TX. The properties are always better than advertised. Best idea for travel with friends and or family.
I love it 5/5
By Taken by Guerra
I’ve used this app last year an I found a really good house to stay in on my vacation it’s real easy to use but you can’t really book a month in advance on a house that you want to book
VRBO WEBSITE 5/5
It was easy to check rentals out and check on the map where the rentals were located. It was really nice that they gave you a total for the amount of time you were staying so you didn’t have to wonder.
New update 1/5
I hate the new update
Too many add-on fees. 3/5
Will reconsider before using BRBO again due to amount of additional feed more than doubling the actual rental cost.
Polly Pope 3/5
By Polly Pope
I have found the app to not be very user friendly. The chat feature was unresponsive. When I checked my booking it indicated the reservation was pending but when I checked the account it indicated that payment was due in the full amount yesterday. My booking indicates no deposit is due until the request for the booking is accepted. I have not received a confirmation from the owner yet. There is an inconsistency and there is no help desk available for me to resolve the issue.
Would be nice to filter by minimum night stay
