Just a total rip off! We booked through home away and then through direct stay and the price listed on home away was not what we paid with direct stay.
We were staying in Amsterdam. just avoid direct stay, totally shady business!!!! When I emailed several times to direct stay the emails back were never informative. If I were the homeowner using home away with direct stay I would be so embarrassed!
The confusion started when I would do the math in US dollars and then in Euros. We put a down payment down and then they asked for the remaining half but it was more than half! I would not be surprised if the quietly go out of business! How they remain in business I have no idea!
Direct Stay=Scam Stay. AVOID!!!!
