My parents rented a 5br house with pool in Orlando near a popup shul for Pesach 2005. $200/night.
Wonder what it would cost today?
We paid under $200 a night for a 7 bedroom in Champions Gate this past Sukkos. When I checked for Pesach this year it was $500 a night for 5 rooms.

My mother had contacted the person a few months ago who everyone is now saying was doing this. He was officially offering good prices and was basically contacting the owners, offering 2k over what they got and then making 2k himself. She got wary of him then and got a nasty text message from him and decided to just book through Jeeves which is the big management company there.

So...I guess this didn't happen after all?

I didn't read the YWN story, but there is definitely stuff happening, and it is on a large scale.

For Pesach?
Yes. In one of the resorts. Maybe the larger homes are significantly more, IDK.

Owners probably didn't realize it's a busy season when they booked months ago and now have charata. probably using every loophole they can to cancel and rebook at a higher price. My question is, do people booking now realize they are probably taking the house from someone else, albeit indirectly?
Trolls will always post stupid replies

Most people? Probably not.

That's the issue with vacation rentals. Very little recourse for the consumer as opposed to hotel chains that have walking policies.

Oh, I know. But a joke is only as good as the truth it's based on

I'm hearing that this was made significantly worse because they were booked when many people were scared to travel, so there was an excess. Now people are traveling more and it's pesach season.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Weve been going for the past five years never paid more than $300/night. Parents decided not to go this year and they are very happy they didnít book. We found a place for 4k for the whole pesach on vrbo

From YWN comments. Hope this guy hasn't paid for 120 rooms already. I assume people need full kitchens if they were planning on cooking or warming up food for a large family...

Orlando/Miami - Hotel/house? Defiantly nice if its true, but not really solving the problem at hand.
