Deposit at Casita Ylan?

Hi guys,

does someone know, if its normal to do a deposit by moneygram to this place?

Or did someone make bad experiences?

TIA

I have no knowledge of the casita. However, I would personally NEVER use moneygram. Too many scammers utilizing that service and there is nothing in place to protect you. Why not PayPal? If they are insistent on moneygram, I would be suspicious and go elsewhere.

I see it on HomeAway but I'd also be wary of sending money that way. Maybe someone local can speak of the place - looks like the owners are located in Puerto Rico.

We were taken by these people recently! I highly advise against attempting to rent from them. We thought we had a set reservation, only for the owners to rent to someone else! Our trip was only 3 weeks away. Our mistake, will only secure with credit cards from now on.

There is a very nice recent review for Casita Ylan. In seeing who the owners are, I would not be hesitant to rent from them. The issue I would have is Moneygram. Casita Ylan sounds like a very nice place and perhaps if you contacted them they would allow you to send a personal check and follow up to confirm so as to prevent any miscommunication.

Thank you for writing!

@ Mnsealovers:

What did you instead of going to this place?

The problem is that in my opinion the other vacation rentals are really expensive and not in our budget....
