One of the reasons for villas appearing more expensive is the $ to exchange rate which has dropped dramatically over the past couple of years..was 1 = 1.5 $...now 1 = !.3$ or lower..owners have to pay all bills in $ of course

As for the add-ons...some companies have cashed in on adding on all sorts..homeaway being one of the worst for this
US sites will always show prices without tax and clean ..to be added to final figures..standard procedure

the Dibb is the best site...friendly owners...you can build up a good rapport...

We have just booked a DIBB Villa on Sunset Lakes.
Lakeside Haven.
Never thought we would be able to afford anything as nice on our budget.
Absolutely over the moon....

Dollar rate today is $1.30.

There is a large part of the answer.

Also bear in mind that sites like a Homeaway dont even do any checks to see if the villa is owned by the person who says they own it! All they check is that the person placing the advert is the name on the bank account listed!

The exchange rate is certainly part of the issue, but as OPs say booking direct with an Owner can certainly be price advantageous.

One other thing that I have noticed with HomeAway (other than their fees going up) is that many of the listings for Orlando are now what appears to be Management Companies rather than the owner. As a result I'm sure that the price is inflated.
