Set up your rental overview and general information

To set up your rental's general information, you need to create your rental description and provide information about size, distribution, and amenities.

⚠️ In case you have the legacy feature of room types you can decide to set up your rental with Multiple room types. In case you have several identical units of the same room, you can purchase the Bookable Units App. Find out more about which option best suits your needs in this article.

The setup of your rental overview changes depending on if you have configured room types or not.
