I use a cloud based Property Management System by name of Openhotel. (openhotel.com).
I don't recall exactly, but is is like $5.00/room/month. I have been with them for 6 years with very few complaints. I think they connect to airbnb, not sure.
In the Booking.com extranet there is a tab called Policies. There you can require and address. If you don't purposely request, BC wont require it. The bigger problem with no address is that Visa & Mastercard both use a system to verify that a Charge is Valid. It is called the AVS or Address Verification System. It uses the Numerical portion of the address and the Zip Code along with the CC number to verify the charge was authorized. If a guest files a dispute for any reason and there is no address, you loose the dispute.
I do believe you can enter the number of rooms you are giving OTAs to book. If you are using a giant calendar to record your booking on which is what it sound like, and you have 10 apartment available, only list 4 or 5 on the OTA. Then as you get a booking from anywhere, go into the OTA extranet and take on of the available rooms you gave them away. The other alternative is to find a decent Property Management System and a channel Manager. You enter the number of rooms you have into your PMS.
When a reservation comes in from one of the OTAs, that unit is subtracted automatically from your inventory so no one else including you can book it.
