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.

⚠️ As the feature to have multiple room types is no longer available, new rentals cannot be created with multiple rooms types anymore. They can nevertheless be modified, and it is possible to create new room types within an existing rental.

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

Set up rental overview without room types

To set up your rental's general information and amenities in case you don't have any room types configured, go to your Main Menu in the top left corner and select Rentals. Then click on the rental you want to edit, and go to Overview.
Here, you can edit the following sections:

Section Notes
Rental name & description

Enter a rental name, and create a description of the rental.
 💡 Note: You can automatically translate your rental description.

 

Additionally, you can give your rental an Internal Name.
The Internal Name is used only within Lodgify only and will not be shown to your guests.

Rental Type Select a Rental Type from the drop-down list.
Rental info

Let the guest know about the size of the rental, how many people it can accommodate and how many units you have (don't confuse Units with the number of rooms your apartment might have). 

💡 NoteIf your Bookable Units App is not activated yet, you will see a warning, that even though you fill in more units, only one unit will be made available in your calendar. Find out more about the Bookable Units App.2020-01-13_1146.png

Sleeping arrangements Select how many beds you have of which type.2019-10-22_1408.png
Rooms Give details about your room distribution.2019-10-22_1410.png
Rental amenities

Click on Edit Amenities to manage which amenities are available in your rental. Click on Show to the far right to see the options per category. Alternatively, you can use the search bar.

Some amenities may display Airbnb and/or VRBO logos for rentals that are connected to those channels. These logos inform you that the amenity can be synchronized. Furthermore, if you hover over the logo, you can see the name of the amenity on the external channel.


💡 Notes: 

  • Once an amenity is selected, it may take up to 24 hours to synchronize with external channels.
  • Amenities can only be synchronized with Airbnb if you're using "Synch Everything".
  • Amenities that are synchronized may have different names in Lodgify versus the channel. To give you as many options as possible, Lodgify amenities are mapped with the most comparable amenity on external channels. If no comparable amenity exists, the amenity cannot be mapped. In this case, we recommend adding the amenity to your rental's description.
  • Amenities do not synchronize with Booking.com nor Expedia, as these channels do not offer synchronization of rental information.
