I know, I know…shame, shame, shame on me for not wanting to stay on property but I’m very spoiled by my King size bed at home and just can’t sleep in a double with my husband…anyway.
I’ve been looking for a house to rent on the VRBO website and I finally found one to book then I got to reading the cancellation policy and quite frankly, it scared me. We’re not going until November but this particular person’s policy states that if you cancel 30 days out then you will still have to pay the full amount of the rental. Frankly I can’t afford to lose $1600 just in case some type of emergency would come up between now & then. Even the 60 days out states that you will have credit toward a home to use within a year.
I’m sure this is all very customary and I can completely understand the owners wanting this but it really scares me.
Has anyone ever stayed in one of these homes before? If so, I would appreciate hearing your experience. If anyone knows of any other sites to rent from or knows anyone that does rent in the Kissimmee/Orlando area, please let me know.
I DO NOT WANT TO STAY IN A TIMESHARE!!! VERY BAD EXPERIENCE LAST TRIP AND WE REFUSE TO BE HOUNDED OR GO TO PRESENTATION WHEN WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO DESIRE (OR MONEY) TO PURCHASE.
I appreciate anyone/everyone’s input. I know that it is quite a ways away but we’re kinda anal about getting our plans laid out/booked/tickets purchased (which they are), etc.
