Vrbo No Reviews Villa

Hi guys,

Saw a villa on Vrbo that we like but it doesnít have any reviews, is this worrying? There is nothing suspicious about it I.e. cheap price etc but just worried that it has no reviews. Itís managed by a company called Dreams Vacation Rentals and I emailed and asked if there was a reason the have no reviews on Vrbo. They emailed back to say that they receive the majority of their rentals elsewhere. They have a website and some reviews on Google but just want to know if anyone would be put off this villa?

Thanks

This is probably true, some management companies are also using sites now for owners to get guests who will definitely be able to travel, lots of owners who only took brits are now taking guests from other countries

We only joined VRBO at the end of last year so even though we have been renting out our home for years we had no reviews.
A couple of potential guests contacted me about it and I could point them in the direction of a couple of UK sites we have always advertised on so they could see those reviews.
Luckily we now have 5* reviews on AirBnB and VRBO.

As a long time user of VRBO / Homeaway Iíd be reticent to pick one with no reviews. As above though everyone has to start somewhere.

Try Googling the name and area of the villa you may find reviews on a different site. I would contact the owners/ management company and ask.

I like VRBO as a site

We have the same problem with the Dibb actually. Once people have a lot of reviews it's hard to break through. On the other hand we have many many reviews on VRBO and fortunately they are our main advertising platform which has certainly worked to our advantage this year.

Same here... we have a few reviews from Dibb guests but over 70= reviews on VRBO. We have also found in the past that sometimes guests have been unable to submit a review because the platfform didn't allow unless it had been booked through VRBO.

Yes but that guarantees all reviews are absolutely genuine and we can't do anything about them.

Very true however I have to submit all my external bookings onto the VRBO calendar it would be nice if guests could submit their reviews as well through the platform.
