House rules allow you to display what is and what isn’t allowed at your property prior to a guest inquiring or booking. Communicating these rules upfront helps you to avoid awkward conversations or unexpected surprises during the guest’s stay. 

There are six predefined house rules: 

  • Maximum overnight guests
  • Minimum age requirement of primary renter
  • Events allowed
  • Pets allowed
  • Children allowed
  • Smoking allowed

Note: You can also add up to three custom house rules. 
Add details to your rules
Some house rules let you add specific details about your requirements. For example:

  • You can add information like the pet type and size permitted at your property. 
  • You can add more details for guests with a custom note (up to 50 characters) in each rule. 
  • You can add information about local regulations: for example, if you need to request an ID from your guests before check-in.
