Gratuity for a vacation rental?

Jump to last reply

Last February we rented this wonderful home on Maui. We want to rent it again next year. I found the place on vrbo.com , but it is no longer listed there. It is listed on homeaway.com also where much to surprise in the area where cost are mentioned it says "15% Gratuity".

I have never seen this before. Have you?

There is no daily maid service at this home and nothing else that would warrant a tip. It seems like a rip off to me and I wonder if they wanted more money why didn't they just raise the rent by that amount? That would make more sense to me,

I emailed the owner and asked her about it and have not heard yet, but it will be interesting to see what she writes back.

They also added a $150 cleaning fee and there wasn't one before and they did raise the rental rate by $25 a day.

Has anyone ever paid a gratuity for a vacation rental?
