It is about just what you are talking about.

Yours was homeaway, others speak of AirBnB, both are probably affected by the crack down on marginally legal rentals.

If your owner was gracious enough to tip you off I would expect that she is trustworthy to you.

I'd believe her, but I'd have a plan B.
