Updated over a week ago

💡 Important to know:

  • For assistance, click on the small information icon (i) next to the fields.

  • If you have further questions regarding Airbnb, please contact their support team.

House rules

  • Suitable for children (2-12) — select Yes or No depending on whether or not children under 12-years-old can stay in your accommodation. If No is selected, you will be able to add an explanation for guests.

  • Suitable for infants (under 2) — select Yes if infants under 2-years-old can stay in your accommodation; otherwise, select No.

  • Events allowed — select Yes if parties and other events can take place in your accommodation; otherwise, select No.

  • Pets allowed — select Yes if your accommodation is pet-friendly; otherwise, select No.

  • Maximum number of pets — if Pets allowed is set to Yes, select a maximum number of pets allowed between ‘1’ and ‘5’. If nothing is set, the default value will be ‘5’.

💡 The Smoking policy will be synced to Airbnb as a part of the house rules, as it is inherited from the room type settings. If no Smoking policy is set on the room type, the listing will default to Non-smoking.

Additional fees

💡 If you do not want to charge any of the below fees, you can leave them blank.

  • Pet fee — if applicable, enter a fee to accommodate a pet, and make sure it is between ‘0’ and the nightly price. (This field is only editable if you have set Pets allowed to Yes.)

  • Cleaning fee — if applicable, enter the cleaning fee charged per reservation. The minimum value must be USD 5 (or equivalent), while the maximum value should be USD 600 + 25% of the nightly price.

  • Short-stay cleaning fee — if applicable, enter the cleaning fee charged per 1- or 2-night-stay reservations, and ensure it is less than the general Cleaning fee. (The Short-stay cleaning fee can only be set when a Cleaning fee has been configured.)

  • Linen fee — if applicable, select how the fee per linen and towels used in your accommodation should be charged (Per reservation or Per person) and enter a specific amount.

  • Resort fee — if applicable, select whether the fee charged to guests for amenities or services provided by others within a resort or hotel should be a Percentage or an Amount, then enter the value.

  • Community fee — if applicable, select whether the sum charged to guests for building, community, or homeowner association (HOA) fees for short-term rental properties should be a Percentage or an Amount, then enter a value.

  • Management fee — if applicable, select whether the fee charged to guests for general admin and business expenses should be a Percentage or an Amount, then enter a value.

💡 You can enter a specific amount between ‘0’ and USD 6,200,000 (or equivalent) for the Linen fee, Resort fee, Community fee and Management fee.
