I rented a beachfront condo from Joni's Beach Rentals of Panama City Beach, FL. The advance weekend beach weather forecast turned very bad a little over 3 days before the weekend, so I called to cancel.

According to Florida Statutes 559.932, all terms of the deposit must be clearly stated on all offerings and receipts. They didn't prominently state a cancellation policy on their web site athe time of booking or on their receipt, which means that I have the right to cancel anytime I want and receipt a full refund as I didn't use their services, and also because they are in violation of the law. Many resorts allow a full refund if cancelled at least 48 hours prior to arrival. I'm contesting the deposit charge to my credit card as a result.

Got almost a full refund after I filed this report

AUTHOR: Ripped off & pissed off - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, May 27, 2009
After I filed this report, only a day later I got a refund of $125 of my $150. I don't have a problem with this except that they owe me a whole refund, but I'll gladly settle for this. The case is closed and I'm moving on minus $25. I still suggest you don't do business with Joni's Beach Rentals of Panama City Beach, Florida regardless as I shouldn't have to file reports like this to get my money back.
