Off course I contact them and did eaclty what this mail stated, I inquired again the property,
Except this time the "real" owner did reply! He said he had never answerd my mail since his home was not available for those dates. This is at least strange, the fisrt time even he knew ther was no dates avalable he didnt answer but on the second one the answer is on the same date.
From that ponit Ive boeng in contact eith Homeaway and I have no answer on how I am suposed to get my money back.
Of course I will have to rent another place since my hole trip is already paid.
