"Wimdu consistently offer quality privately owned accommodation and provide a facility to contact the property owners directly. No fuss straight forward. I recommend giving it a try."
"I have read some of the reviews here and it is a joke. This company is horrible for both the guest and the host. All they want is their fee up front and they disappear. There is no phone number to call and you must write an e-mail. After they have their fee in hand they will pay the Owner only after the guest has been inside the unit.It the reservation is for one year in advance as is on many high end rentals the guest pays 100% up front and the owner waits a year. This after Wimdu has their fee in hand and full use of the money.
It would seem that protects the guest but it doesn't. If the owner has a cancelation policy the guest will lose much of what they paid. No one wins with this company except Wimdu. Stay away. There are much more reliable services such as homeaway.com which has a phone number to call 24/7."
"We found a flat via Wimdu but this was cancelled in the last minute. Wimdu apologised and specially recommended the "Comfortable and Cozy Room in Montmartre". It seems to have been taken of the market since our stay but we weren't happy at all. The location is wonderful. Other than that, with all respect to the host lady called Carina, it was not a good experience, she had made no effort at all. Long story short: Room wasn't ready by 2 pm as promised as it still needed cleaning but was still left dusty 2 hours later. Smallish room full of very personal belongings like photos, memorabilia, handbags, dirty gown on the wall and other clothing. Wooden shelves with books above the head of the bed hanging loose against the wall and felt unsafe. Her room next door separated by a thin wooden door, at night her coughing sounded next to the bed. I was hoping it was not TB. No mirror in the room, bathroom mirror small and high. Toilet paper ran out the first day and was never replaced!!! I'll stop.
Sorry Carina and sorry Wimdu, thank you but no thank you, never ever again. Rob Esser"
