i think i need to go somewhere with a spade! i'm really angry for you Michelle I know how much planning you have put into this. Hope everything works out
Really nice of people to offer to help you out though
It looks like Michelle is going to go with Trading Standrads to sue the villa owner - she has checked her travel insurance and isn't covered for the cost.
I don't think he has booked anywhere else for them to stay and she no longer trusts anything he says( he's only contacted them via e-mail and text and won't take Michelle's calls)
I'm sure she will be on to update once she has more info.
Is this person/villa owner/manager/management company located anywhere in the greater Orlando area????
Is there anything as a local, I could do? I must confess that I'm not truly following what the problems are, but if there is something I can do, let me know, ok?
At the least, there should be some agency to report this person to (if it's a US person, I mean).
Sorry for being such a dunce, but as I've demonstrated, I don't follow the "villa lingo" very well.
Oh Michelle, I'm devastated for you . What an.
How dare people do this, ohhhhh l am so cross on your behalf.

Lots of villa owners have offered help and I think Beth's food is being delivered to an owner who is already out there and has offered to take delivery.
Hopefully things will turn out ok.
Thank you for your kind thoughts. I had given up all hope of getting Beth there earlier and just wanted to curl up.
With the help of a dibb member who is a villa owner, i think we have a villa. The nasty guy said he will pay in $ tomorrow by cc but who knows. I hope he does. The villa is beautiful and i have told the owner the issues. If not i will take him to the cleaners. The villa has everything we need but pool hoist, we will struggle but manage. Its in Indian creek. It really looks beautiful.
So i need lots of the magical dust that we get it.
