Barrier Island Tetreat

Barrier Island Retreat is a wonderful place to stay. Two of my daughters and I enjoyed our long weekend getaway so much. This apartment is adorable as well as comfortable, and the owners Deby and John are awesome. They do not hover around, but are always available and very knowledgeable about the area. The location is great, access to the beach very easy and just a short drive to St. Augustine makes Barrier Island Retreat the perfect place to stay. Not having a full kitchen was no problem for us. A very nice grill was available if we had chosen to cookout, but the refrigerator held all the cold foods we brought along and we brewed tea in the microwave. We do plan on making this place one of our go to, home away from home. Thanks again for a wonderful visit!

Have some issues

I love this app but after the last update I am a little disappointed with it. I used to be able to name/change the name of my different favorites folders and now they all just say “mobile favorites” which is a bit annoying. And I agree with some of the other reviews, there should be a way to see all the fees and get a grand total, that way there’s no surprises.


Booked this property thru Evolve back in March for the week of thanksgiving and now I get an email canceling my reservations with no explanation what so ever. Don’t book this property. Owner is inconsiderate.

Charming decor in a comfortable home

The charming decor inside and out is wonderful, but the home also is very roomy and comfortable for a large group. My sisters and I, and our families, were very pleased and we highly recommend it as a great place for your family to stay when you visit Branson.

Rate review

I have used him away before once I’m in using again hopefully my second stay is as enjoyable as the first

Still not working after a YEAR

I havent been able to contact owners in over a YEAR. It shows that I am sending a message and says its "processing the message." Then the message disappears never to be seen again and the owner never receives it. Ive tried app support three times. I give the tech guy all the info he asks for, his advice doesnt solve the problem and he stops emailing back and gives up. Great, no trip for me. I have the most current version of this app and still after a YEAR this is still a problem


The fees are truly becoming out of control! We pay $500 per year for their advertising and our guests are paying outrageous service fees

Someone hacked me and I can’t change the name

I’m sure it’s a fine app otherwise, but I can’t use it if I can’t just click the My Account button and fix my information.

Love it

I have been using this app or Vrbo for 10 hrs and absolutely love it. I have never had a bad condo yet. The reviews are from real renters.

Awesome experience

Very easy and simple to book

Hotels? WHY?!

I notice hotels are now allowed to post their available “rooms” on “Home”away. Why? If I wanted to stay in a hotel, I’d go to a different site! 😡

Doesn’t let you list

Keeps saying I have No Listings. I listed a property and when it didn’t appear I tried again and again and again, says that I already have a listing for that day but won’t show it. Waste of time.

4 stars only

Site lags too much and often doesn’t pull up the most up to date information regarding homes

Easy, peasey

Such an easy app to use. Booked a trip in less than 5 min!


First user of this app Great service and excited my reservation approval

Rental Frustration

We wanted to rent this place at the beach. I messaged the woman, who was handling the rental, and never heard back from her.

House paid for

I went through home away as I had an awesome experience when I rented for Kissimmee in Florida. I have paid on full a house in Temecula California and have not heard back from owner or property manager. Getting very nervous and can not find how to ask home away itself

Bad deep linking

You make me download your app to view a property that was shared to me via sms... and then when I download it you also make me login or sign up???? That’s a horrible customer experience ... just link to mobile web instead don’t be lazy

Please don’t book through this site

We dealt with an issue on our stay with cleanliness and then with our safety and being harassed by an employee on the property after trying to address the issue of the house not being clean. Home away security and customer service have done absolutely nothing to resolve this issue. they could not get me any kind of refund even after hours of phone calls and emailing back-and-forth with customer service sending in photos of The employee harassing my personal Facebook weeks later. I am blown away by the lack of customer service. this is a hospitality industry you should care if your customers stay in a clean and safe environment. Home away claimed they are just a online booking platform and have no responsibility to anything that happens to the customer during their stay. Very concerning.

Easy and affordable

Easiest way to book a nice vacation at a reasonable price.

We are so spoiled

Every time we travel we do Home away. Started in 2015. Have been to Prescott Az, New York City, Chicago and San Diego. We are off to Vegas this weekend to see my nephew get married. We love,love HomeAway.com

4th of July Vacation

What we liked about this little place was it was within walking distance from the beach and many different restaurants. You don’t have to worry about trying to find parking or pay for parking. I would highly recommend this place to any couple that is looking for a nice getaway. We’re a couple that likes to be on the go and this location gave us easy access to the main Highway which enabled us to travel to all our activities. We would defiantly recommend this rental to our friends and family members. I would also like to say that if you have any questions, just send a message to Fabrice & Sabrina and they will respond well within an hour. Our trip to Florida was filled with adventure, meaning our fights were not on time and the whole time I keep in touch with them. They also checked in on us to see if we had arrived at their rental okay. Great people to work with. Ralph

Buck Creek

Great location in country close to Indy, with great hosts, great accommodations.

Love Home Away every time I travel!

The app is easy to use and user friendly. The only thing I've noticed that I can't do from the app on my iPad is add another saved group of favorite properties. You would have to do that from a computer. I can add to an existing group though.


The best and safest way to book a rental house or condo!!!

Love this place

This will be the second time staying here. We love it here.

Baseball week

This house is perfect for 2-3 families. Lots of space inside and out. About a 25 minute drive to the All Star Village.


The picture off the balcony was so deceptive. Maybe the water was that high on a full moon with a storm surge. Otherwise it was a 1/4 mile trudge to the water.

Misleading Pricing

Even when putting in specific dates, the average price per night is no average. Example: condo shows average of $125 a night for 4 nights. Grand total with fees? Over $4000. Deleting app, can no longer trust this service.

Needs more features and doesn’t sync with desktop website correctly

There needs to be other features besides favorites. It would help tremendously to be able to eliminate homes when looking so you don’t have to keep seeing them and trying to remember why you didn’t want (without looking through pics and descriptions again). It would also be useful to add notes to a particular house as well so you can use that when trying to narrow down houses. Also, when you favorite a house on the desktop website it goes on it’s own list instead of combined with others

Great App

Great app. Very user friendly and easy to use.

Needs improvements for consumers

From a consumer stand-point, the following needs to be improved, as they are interfering with effectively searching the properties for what one is looking for. 1. Need an option to sort by total price, not price per night. The various fees considerably change the total cost, making price per night daily useless. 2. Bed configurations. The listing owner needs to be required to clearly state the bed configurations and how they they are arriving at the number of guests their property will accommodate. I frequently see hotels list 2 queen beds but sleeping 5-6.

Please show actual prices per night for search dates

It’s so annoying the app doesn’t always show the price per night for the dates you are searching. It’s very frustrating to find a place you love and the. Find out the price listed was the lowest price of the year and the price for your dates is triple. Please fix this, it’s ridiculous.

Wonderful Vacation Rentals!

I have reserved several vacation destination homes, cottages, condos through both Vacation Rentals By Owners and HomeAway over many years! I always read the reviews and base my choice on the review! My hubby and I have never been disappointed in any accommodations. We have reserved in Maine and Aruba! This is the way to travel! I hope to continue to use both booking sites for as long as we are able!

Home Away

I have stayed at several places through home away. Every experience has been great. Homes are clean and have been as pictured

Never Staying in a Hotel Again

We have used HomeAway all over the country and we are in love! You get the comforts of home, meet awesome people, and know your money goes to a person not a corporate chain! Love supporting small businesses and I love being able to go “home” after an adventure!

So thankful

We love this app ! So thankful for the HomeAway options available for travel !

Absolutely Superior!

My wife and 17y/o son stayed at Casa de Banta for the second time during the last week in June 2018. It was the BEST HomeAway experience we have ever had. David & Libby were very accommodating and had some great restaurant recommendations. There were plenty of kitchen appliances, towels, and very comfortable furnishings. The outside patio area was a great place to have breakfast every morning and a glass of wine in the evening. It was nice having parking that was onsite in the middle of town. Walking distance to everything except to the beach. We will definitely be returning as St. Augustine is one of our favorite getaway places in Florida. I couldn’t of asked for a better way to spend my 60th Birthday!

Nice Home

We enjoyed our stay at this home. It was very nice and clean. Specious and comfortable. Close to Restaurants, Stores and Bush Gardens etc. Plenty of dishes etc were available for those who choose to cook and not eat out. J.D

Beach Life

Wonderful Condo!! Close to everything and quiet. Enjoyed the comfort of home Away from Home Rena

Pricing problems

I used to use Homeaway and VRBO all the time. The last couple times though have been very frustrating. The fees aren’t obvious... and aren’t a small matter... a $250 a night (2 nights) charged my credit card for $1259. Of course that includes a cleaning deposit that will be refunded- but since I am not staying until next summer... that is a whole year where they get to use my money. Second, and more importantly, this is the second time in a row that I have been notified by the owner that their fee schedule wasn’t up to date. So instead of $250, it is $450 a night with a 4 night minimum. Meanwhile, I am getting confirmation emails from HomeAway and telling me I am booked. Can the owner just arbitrarily increase the price like that? Am I booked or not??? This is not worth the hassle.

Truly The Only Way To Travel

We have used Home Away for years and I wouldn’t vacation any other way!! You can put in what you’re looking for, take a virtual tour of the properties and pick the one best for you. Plus you get to communicate with the owner so it’s more personal, you can ask questions so there are no surprises. I love Home Away!!!

Girl trip

Beautiful home with breathtaking views! Even with 100+ temps there was a nice cool breeze in the morning so sitting out on the porch to enjoy the view was a must. The pool in the evening was very refreshing. Everything was clean and felt new while keeping the character of a 1909 home. Would certainly recommend!

Love HomeAway!

Been using HomeAway for a few years now. It’s so much better than staying in a hotel. So far, I’ve had great experiences with the owners and homes I’ve rented. The only thing I don’t really like is it seems the service fees are a lot more now.

Are My Dates Available?

The only issue I have with Home Away is that I have to give credit card info before I know if I have the rental. Other rental sites show what dates are available and I like that transparency. Home Away feels a bit like the owner can discriminate if there are multiple applicants for the same request. I have been turned down more than once for- “I have another party also interested in these dates”. Then I have to wait to hear that my credit card wasn’t charged...but my info is out there.

Nice homes good service

I have used HomeAway for many rentals over the years. South Carolina, Texas, USA and Tuscany, Lazio Italy. So far the various owners I have dealt with have provided a house that corresponds with the pictures or has been even better. Can recommend to use this service with no doubts.


Rented home in SanDiego. What a filthy mess. Kitchen was not cleaned oven with dried food, dish washer with standing water and full of mold. We have to clean it with bleach. Sink was discussing small plastic kid bowls full of dried food. Cabinets has some bugs. Grill full of dried food, small pool had not been cleaned in a long time Advertised sleeps 8. It sleeps 4 adults and 2 kids. 4th bedroom out doors. 6 chairs in kitchen. 4 chairs outdoors. Did receive deposit and cleaning fee back from STACY.

Show total price during search

I use home away all the time, but the worst feature is that you can see two $150/nt houses with fees are so different they are not even close to comparable. Please add the ability to search by total price before going into the booking screen.


We had a great stay in this home the third week of June 2018. There was plenty of room to spread out and loads of beds. Everyone had one. Home was well-equipped with all the essentials, including an extra dryer for beach towels. The beach is an easy walk, and there’s a nice pool too. If you are having a family reunion or larger group gathering of any size, then you will be pleased. It is an exceptional value!!!

Love the Ease

Our group uses this every year we go to the Ozarks. We love the ease of booking!
