What Users Say: (From the Better Business Bureau)
I own a property management company in SW Idaho. Red Awning is responsible for multiple double booking issues in my homes. I recently displaced a guest to another vacation rental that was nothing like the home they thought they were renting. I let them stay there for 5 nights with no revenue because Red Awning had their money. They have now refunded the guests credit card and I have no revenue to show for them staying in my condo for five nights. It is near impossible to get anyone at the company to communicate with me. RED AWNING IS HORRIBLE DO NOT USE THEM, you can find the same homes for cheaper on plenty of other websites just do your research. They actually mark up my homes to make money and don’t want me to tell the guests about it. TOTALLY UNETHICAL!!
