We have been trying to contact an owner with no sucess. We are unable to complete our travel as planned and the owner was very quick to take the down payment, but refuses to open the weeks to see if someone else will rent the property. She will not answer phone calls from our home number and when we tried with a cell, she said she was working and woudl call back. No call - oh what a surprise.
Did you send the money without seeing a contract? How did you pay for it? Did she state a cancellation policy? If so, what was it? I don't mean to ask so many questions, but it's helpful to know what your next steps should be.
