Host Tools does not currently have a feature to support this, but there is a way to set it up with iCals for Airbnb and VRBO. Follow the steps and drawing below in order to link together an entire home listing, and multiple rooms.

In this example, there is a house (Whole Home) listing that can be reserved by itself and two, one-room listings that can be reserved individually (Room A and Room B). If someone makes a reservation on the Whole Home, both the Room A and Room B listings should be blocked or if someone makes a reservation for Room A, the Whole Home should be blocked but Room B should remain open.

For all manually created reservations, you need to manually block or create another reservation on the other listing(s) as well. Those won't carry over.

Requirements:

  • You must have availability syncing enabled on Host Tools for all the listings involved

  • This will only work on Airbnb and VRBO but can work with other channels, please reach out to [email protected] if you have other channels you would like us to support.

You can set up linking like this for Airbnb and VRBO if you follow these steps:

  1. Export the iCal from Room A on Airbnb and import it into the Whole Home listing on Host Tools

  2. Export the iCal from Room B on Airbnb and import it into the Whole Home listing on Host Tools

  3. Export the iCal from Whole Home on Airbnb and import it into both the Room A and Room B listings on Host Tools.

  4. Repeat these steps for VRBO.

Note: iCals can be delayed and this can leave your listings available after a booking for a short time while the availability syncs. You may want to disable instant book if you are using this method.
