Your Mom always told you: NOTHING IS FOR FREE. This includes AirBnB and VRBO/Homeaway.
See the attached article (link below), which outlines some of the “hidden” fees from these sites, which really give you nothing in return. Try booking with the owner (Us) directly, and save on all of these fees. And, please feel confident in our many 5 Star reviews, and our lengthy rental history since 2011.
