@Caroline-Benzel Wow - I was ready to get in on this thread and look at some websites again - but now I just want to come to Baja and make and eat tamales with you!!! (Great job on the blog I will go thru the VR stuff later this week as I'm on the departure countdown from my Greek properties and have 1.1 million things to do before my flight to Chicago leaves .... But for now I am dreaming of your tamales! So I'd say that's a good thing.

RE: Website Critique
Combined properties, how to test it before going live
I have the same problem discussed earlier this summer and I would like to test this out.
However I do not want to mess up my live calendars with my current properties, but I have 10 properties already.
I do not want to pay for extra properties to just try this. Is there a way to create "test properties" that I can use to try this?
Remove "starting at ...price" ?
I just lowered my rates for winter weekdays and I've had a rash of inquiries that are expecting rates that are more than half my normal rates.
I finally asked someone about it and they said that my website is very misleading - how can I remove the "starting at ..." from each property page?
RE: Change company name for VRBO/HomeAway synced props?
Just following up to share what I learned:
It's editable by going into the HomeAway/VRBO account dashboard and under >>Account, then >>Personal Details then >>> Contact Information
It's pulled from Company Name and Display Name.
Note it takes about 24 hours to update once you change it.
Change company name for VRBO/HomeAway synced props?
My Owner name on the synced VRBO properties is Greek Vacation Rentals.
Where do I edit this info in order to make it resync with my name. I assume that it is pulling my company name - but since it will use the same data to fill both my Chicago props and my Greece props, I would prefer it just say Carole Heiman Kezios.
RE: Deleted Airbnb import, what to do with reservation?
HI @Danny Thanks ! I had actually expected that, I just didn't expect that it would leave the reservation listed as a reservation. The toggle worked.
Deleted Airbnb import, what to do with reservation?
I have had ongoing issues with the Airbnb connection to myvr - their import keeps blocking dates that should not be blocked.
I don't take very many Airbnb bookings so in an effort to stop this from happening I deleted the Airbnb "import" to MyVR under the Calendar only channel mgmt.
I have one Airbnb reservation and while it remains in the system and is labeled as a Reservation - it is actually showing up as a blue inquiry and not a reservation. I can't convert it to a reservation from an inquiry because it is already a reservation.
The calendar now shows these dates as available - but the reservation remains in my MyVR system:
Activating Instant Confirmation (VRBO/HomeAway channel)
Is it possible to activate Instant Confirmation for a property listed on VRBO? I currently have channel management but I cannot find anything on MyVR that refers to Instant Confirmation (as opposed to instant booking.
