I host an apartment comprising 2 private rooms on Airbnb. I’ve created 3 listings for this apartment so that guests have the option to book either the entire apartment or a private room. For ease of reference, let’s refer to the three listings as “Entire apartment”, “Room #1” (private room) and “Room #2” (private room). I tried using the “Create Linked Calendar” setting on Airbnb with the hope that : (i) if I get a booking for Entire Apartment, it will automatically block those calendar dates for Room #1 and Room #2; (ii) if I get a booking for Room #1, it will automatically block calendar dates for Entire Apartment. While (i) and (ii) are happening seamlessly, what ALSO seems to be happening is that bookings for Room #1 automatically blocks calendar dates for Room #2 which is senseless.
While creating the Linked Calendar, I selected Entire Apartment when asked to “Choose a listing that contains your other listings” and selected Room #1 and Room #2 when asked " Which listings are in Entire Apartment?" Am I doing something wrong or is this is a glitch in the system? I vaguely read elsewhere that the linked calendar feature on Airbnb became dysfunctional after an update in August. Has anyone faced this issue or managed to use this calendar feature successfully?
