Discussed the pros and cons of a Cottage Rotation for those who call in to book (who don’t already have a cottage preference
Decision -- Most people know which cottage they want when they call in. For anyone who does not, rental office does suggest cottages with low rental rate. No further action needed by committee.
Office Remodel: - complete. Receiving great feedback
Booking interfering with checking in on same date as someone checking out.
Guesty has been advised, and has said they’re working on it. Donnie/Brandy to reach out to them again.
Issue – when adding a new cottage, if created in Guesty, it will sync to booking, etc. The only way to get cottage on Airbnb is to create on Airbnb and then it feeds back to Guesty. This creates a duplicate on our site.
Donnie to reach out to Guesty.
