How can I rent a whole house with four rooms

How can I post to rent whole house with four rooms. What I describe doesn't tally with my price and number of guests. Whole house can fit in 9 people, instead the post show with 4 rooms of 2 person each, 4 bookable rooms. The price is for example 100 per house instead it show each rooms is 100 each. Please help, I'm stuck with this rate for quite sometime. Thanks

Hi. we have a channel manager to manage the booking from other sources and all channels have their own way how you can set up rooms only. On booking.com we had to signed up the property as a home stay and add the rooms individually in our extranet as we wanted to also be able to rent the entire property and this was the only way it would work. If you need more info let me know.

It is complicated if you have a restriction on total guests. We dont like having more than 8 people at the time in the property but two rooms can accommodate 4 people and two can fit 3 people so i have to watch the bookings and close rooms. This is done from our Tokeet channel manager as all the pricing is. They ask for $29.99 up to 5 properties/rooms

I just spoke to them. To rent a whole house (i.e. with 2 bedrooms) you just go to your calendar and in ROOMS TO SELL you must press edit and choose the number 1 (ONE). Voila. That's it!! You are renting 1 unit, i.e. the whole house. Room configuration is then detailed in PROPERTY/ ROOM DETAILS where you specify the number of rooms, beds etc. Hope this helps.

We rent our B&B by rooms on Booking.com but how do you show to prospective customers the "whole house" is also available upon request? All the pricing in the property section is stated per room and not for the whole house. Is it possible to show both approaches on Booking.com? Very curious about this question. JN

I'm running a villa with 5 rooms. And we are offering it as a whole 5-bedroom villa with a discounts or by rooms. We have few rates at Booking for rooms and a separate rate for the whole villa.

In our channel manager setup (Effective Tours) we set a whole villa as Virtual room which depends from 5 rooms. When at least one room is booked - villa is not available and all connected channels updating accordingly. When the villa is booked, all 5 rooms marked as not-available.

The only one thing you have to keep in mind regarding the Booking listing, is that in case if you list rooms & all villa at once, you have a small chance of overbooking, cause a potential guest can book whole villa+ rooms. Frankly said. it's quite rare, and you can always contact the guests immediately after the booking and manage the situation.
