Hosting Hotline: Beginner Steps to Host a Parent-Child STR Listing (Episode 336)

Get the Basics on Parent-Child Short-Term Rental Hosting

Welcome back to the Hosting Hotline! This is an Ask Me Anything where each week we’ll answer your questions on Airbnb, STRs, real estate, and everything in between.

Whitney asks:

Can I create a parent-child listing for two homes that are next door to each other? I own one of them and my neighbors own the other. I’m the co-host for their house. I would like to create a parent-child listing to accept large groups that can stay in both homes, but I’m also aware that there may be tax consequences or other complications I may be missing by accepting a booking for both homes at once.

I’m wondering if there’s a way to create a parent-child listing and accept inquiries – and then when they do visit the page to book both – direct them to each individual listing. Any insight would be really helpful.
