Houfy is now integrated with vacation rental channel manager Hostaway! Streamline rental management, boost visibility, and optimize revenue from one dashboard.

We are thrilled to announce a significant enhancement to your hosting toolkit—Houfy is now seamlessly integrated with the channel manager Hostaway, making your hosting journey smoother, more efficient, and rewarding.

As a vacation rental host, you juggle multiple tasks for running a successful business. With so much already on your to-do list, manually managing bookings to multiple channels becomes daunting. This integration promises to alleviate those challenges, giving you more time to focus on delivering an exceptional guest experience and growing your business.

Why Do Property Owners Need a Vacation Rental Channel Manager?

Managing a vacation rental property involves numerous responsibilities, from maintaining the property and ensuring it's guest-ready to marketing it across various platforms and managing bookings. Handling these tasks across multiple online travel agencies (OTAs) such as Airbnb,Booking.com, and VRBO can lead to several issues:

  1. Double bookings: without a unified system, there's a high risk of double bookings, leading to customer dissatisfaction and financial loss.
  2. Time-consuming processes: updating availability, pricing, and property details across different platforms is time-consuming and prone to human error.
  3. Mis-communication: juggling communications with guests from various platforms can be overwhelming and lead to missed messages or delays in response time.
  4. Inefficient workflow: without automation, running your vacation rentals becomes inefficient, ultimately affecting guest satisfaction.

A vacation rental channel manager like Hostaway centralizes these processes, allowing you to manage your business from a single dashboard. Enjoy peace of mind knowing your guests are supported at every step of their booking process while your business runs smoothly without your presence.
