Boost your search ranking through calendar sync

  • Get to know the block time feature: Take time now to block days you know you won’t be available. It’s a quick and easy way to pre-qualify guests and save everyone (including yourself) time and energy.
  • Sync your calendar: Too many conversations begin with a question around availability. Keep your Peerspace calendar up-to-date by syncing your own and you’ll be one step ahead every time.

Prepare for your first inquiry by staying connected

  • Enable text message notifications: Hosts who reply to 90% of their inquiries within one day are 5x more likely to land bookings. Receive push notifications for new inquiries and booking requests (we promise, no solicitations!) and never miss a beat.
  • Download the Peerspace iOS app: Reply to inquiries, accept booking requests, and keep your information up-to-date — all while on-the-go. The Peerspace app is the best place to manage your guests.
