Location based booking settings

Is there any way to prevent locals booking my property? It's in a small town where local people don't tend to go on holidays. We've had two bookings from locals in a row now that caused problems with neighbours that we don't get with people who are on holidays. I'd like to be able to prevent locals from booking my property as a party pad. People seem to gladly ignore that it is not for parties which I have added to the property description.

I am pretty sure you can't do this.  Other option is to increase price but then offer discounts (using Promotions) for other people, ie. per country.  Or a minimum stay so your locals don't just come for 1 night but that also depends on how long people on holiday stay.  if you need to contact booking.com help team to check with them, use Inbox icon on Extranet.
