I’m trying to book an entire house in Costa Rica for next summer. Airbnb didn’t really have options that appealed to me but VRBO/HomeAway did. Three days ago I decided which house I wanted and it took 18 hours to find out they can’t reserve right now because of some problem with payments, etc. They will contact me in a few days when they are ready for the payment to go through, etc. I thought being willing to spend well north of $600 a night would get better service but apparently not. $6000+ tied up for a year in advance is a lot of money to me but I guess not to lots of people.

That same host who declined us, well the next day when I looked again, the place was available. I tried again, another decline. I suggested he might take it off the calendar.
That is infuriating.
