The term “you“ refers to the user visiting the Site, listing a property, and/or requesting a reservation on this Site. You are not authorized to use this Site unless you are at least 18 years of age and able to enter into legally binding contracts.
The Site is a Venue and We are not a party to any rental agreement or other transaction between users of the Site.
The Site provides an on-line marketplace to allow property managers who advertise on the Site (each, a “Host”) to offer for rent in a variety of pricing formats, a specific vacation or short term rental property to potential renter or renters (each, a “Guest” and, collectively with a member, the “users”).
We are not a party to any rental or other agreement between users. As a result, any part of an actual or potential transaction between a Host and a Guest, including the quality, condition, safety or legality of the properties advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings (including the content thereof or any review relating to any property), the ability of Guests to rent or the ability of Guests to contract for properties are solely the responsibility of each user.

The stay, the price, and the quality of the stay is the responsibility of the host.
Cancellations and refunds
At Oway, our hosts can choose between 3 cancellation policies; Flexible, Moderate and Strict.
