  • Video Training: If you would like to review a video of this scenario, click here.
  • Purpose: Using Shared Inventory to sell both a whole house or separate rooms within that house.
  • Recommended Property Types: Vacation Rentals, Campgrounds, etc

Things To Keep In Mind:

  • You may want to rearrange your linked room types on the calendar so that they are organized in a specific order, read our article about how to do that.
  • The split rooms must all be of the same accommodation type.

How Shared Inventory Works with Houses and Other Split Accommodations:

  • In some cases, shared inventory can be used to sell one degree of split rooms.
  • The split rooms must all be the same accommodation type.
    • Example: You can split a house into two identical duplexes, but you cannot split a house into a king room and three studios.


Linking Accommodations Steps:

1. Click on the settings gear icon to go the settings menu

2. Go to the "Accommodation Type" section.

3. Create any needed accommodation types

As an example, we'll be linking an accommodation so it can be sold as either a house or two duplexes.

  • Set "number of units" to the amount of houses you have for sale. Note: Each housing unit will need to be linked separately in shared inventory.
  • Set the correct max occupancy for the whole house. Note: If your houses have separate max occupancies, you should create each house as a separate accommodation type.
  • Write an accurate accommodation description if you plan to offer this unit on your booking engine.
  • Click Save.

Make sure the occupancy for your accommodation types is correct

4. Navigate to the "Shared Inventory" page
