VRBO History

vrbo 1

VRBO, which is an acronym for Vacation Rental By Owners, was founded by David and Lynn Crouse in 1995. The couple had a condo that they decided to rent out, rather than sell. What began with a single condo offering, has turned into one of the largest vacation rental sites in history. After Lynn was injured in a car accident and David lost his job, the couple decided to move to California for improved job prospects. They purchased a house in northern California and decided to rent their condo.

The internet was in its infancy, so the couple began with an 800 number and a picture of their condo on the back of skiing magazines. Later, Dave built a website and the company was actually run from the couple’s basement.

VRBO 2    Today, in combination with their parent company, VRBO operates a vacation rental marketplace with more than 2,000,000 vacation rentals in 190 countries. VRBO was acquired by HomeAway in 2006 for $160 million. The company operates as a subsidiary.

VRBO has headquarters in Austin, Texas. Along with its parent company, VRBO had annual revenue in 2014 of $448.6 million

We are not sure what to do. We manage 7 properties, two we advertise on VRBO. We went to add another property and it is still pending approval for over a month. We had closed a bank account and added a new one, filled out the docusign, was assigned to a Emmet Fey of Yapstone. Still waiting on approval. Our other two properties are fine and are going to the new bank account. What is Yapstones problem? First, nobody can help you, nor can you talk to anyone directly that can do anything. FYI, we put same property on AirBNB, changed bank information on that as well, took less than 24 hours and we have rented 5 times already. Any assistance would be helpful,. Thank you.

Subject: Property #914928
This property is operating in violation of the Town of Exeter Zoning Laws. The owner has repeatedly attempted to secure approval of a “special use permit” and has been denied on all three attempts; Independent B&B, AirB&B and Duplex, over the course of ten years. Our town ordinance is specific; Section C.1.3.3.F.C and denials on all three efforts were opposed unanimously by the Exeter Zoning Board. By allowing this property to be advertised on VRBO, VRBO is complicit as a willing and active particiipant In the violation. The neighborhood has vehemently opposed the petitions and has provided both oral and written testimony, including a petition, to the Zoning Board. As such should any situation occur, including but not limited to, crime, police action, damage, fire and/or trespassing, VRBO and its parent company, Homeaway may be involved in legal action for monetary damages and/or media inquiries. A letter is being sent to Melissa Fruge, Chief Legal Office, Robert Lindsey, Corporate Counsel, John Kim, President and Trent York, CFO
Please advise within 7 days of this email regarding actions taken.
Thank you for reading this message

I have used vrbo for years and like the convenience and have never had any problems.’\

I have one now. I signed up with 998045 and paid at one price listed on the sight and now the owners came back and decided to raise the price. Can they do this?
Thay are “blaming VRBO” and some internal problem.
If you bought something in a store and the price tag said one amount and you go to pay and the cashier decides to charge more? Not good business.
Thank you
