Mobile If no dibb villa then where?

Not having a whole lot of luck on the request page, where do people look for villas do you go through the owner or a company? And what do I need to look for to make sure they are above board etc?

We went with homeaway/ when we booked a villa. Found one in Davenport which was absolutely great. We searched for the amount and no of bedrooms and did a couple more criteria:
  • Had to be rated 4*
  • Needed to have more than 20 different reviews (all of which at least 4*)
  • Needed to be a Premier Partner
  • Owner was willing to answer queries within 24hrs

We then looked through all of those that fitted the bill and then filtered with a couple of other things we wanted:
  • Private Pool
  • Games Room
  • Air Con
  • Satellite TV

The owner of the villa we found also had other property over the world and we looked through those reviews so we felt pretty happy with what we picked. When we arrived it was even better than we thought it would be. We emailed first to discuss the property and went from there. Booked it through the website. All good.

I have booked one for august with vr360 villas , I looked for ones with reviews and I wanted a British owner (not sure why just easier to pay I guess) , I did the checks I could and also asked if the villa was up for sale as we got caught out by that once before. I will still worry until I get there but fingers crossed it will all be ok .
