    • For the most part, I love VRBO and AirBNB. With a few select exceptions, they are my first look when it comes to lodging.

      But as with most things, stupid/lazy people get involved and it goes to ****. More than once I've requested a booking, only to be told that the property is "unavailable" for the requested dates. Each time its because the property has been rented out via a different site than what I use (I'll request through VRBO, but the property was rented through HomeAway and the owner never removed the VRBO listing for example) and the owner never updated the availability on other platforms. I really wish there was a way to leave a review regarding this. It would go a long way in showing which owners have their crap together vs those that are running a Gong Show.

      • Not sure what I'm missing, but you can leave detailed reviews by property on airbnb at the very least and would be surprised if you couldn't with the others.

        [edit] now that I look this is the same for vrbo.

        Perhaps you meant a shared review that sticks with the property which yeah out of luck. You'd have to do it separately at each site.

          You can only review if you actually stayed at the property. So the owner being lazy and not keeping their availability tight and updated basically goes unmentioned. You can't say anything beforehand or without actually renting. So my experience goes unnoted to others.

            Ah Roger - yes they makes sense and I agree.

            • I'm not sure a public review process is needed, but there ought to be a way to report it to Airbnb/VRBO and owners with enough strikes should be disciplined by the platforms. Had this happen over the winter when I was trying to rent a ski condo and the first one I tried to book I was informed by the owner that he wasn't renting due to the pandemic and proceeded to go into a long, lecturey diatribe about COVID. Okay fine, you don't want to rent to anyone, then remove your listing man!

              I suspect he left it up just so he could try to discourage people from coming at all.

              • For some my reason my bookmarked link to USCHO isn't working, but if I search through google I can connect and I can't see a difference in the www address. Nothing major but weird at least.

                  If you use IE, there's a bug that just erases the actual link within the bookmark.

                        I don't even think IE users use IE anymore. Even Brent didn't use IE...

                            I knew they were dead when even my USG sponsor finally banhammered them.

                            My sponsor still used Lotus until a few years ago.

                            IE/Edge is the worst product I have ever used. And I've had Michelob.

                            • Isn't Edge just an MS branded Chrome browser?

                              My company still uses IE because that's all apparently our web version of Deltek (for our timesheets) uses.

                              Then again, they also deployed two different versions of Firefox to all users and then blocked the ability to update them...
