AIRBNB Booking Window

I have a booking window set at 3 months in advance but I still receive bookings 5 - 6 months in advance. Talked to an Air rep and she is clueless. I read the Air community forum and there seems to be mass confusion regarding settings, price tips and advance discounts.

Besides manually blocking my condos on Air does anyone else have a fix or another work around.

ALL these booking site have become a giant PITA.

Do you receive bookings or inquiries?

One thing I have noticed is that if you set rates out farther than your booking window, Airbnb will automatically reset the booking window. Could that be the case?

One of each. I declined the inquiry. The booking was OK as it was a mid week rental for a few nights.

They called me later and indicated that is the case and it's a known bug. I went ahead and updated my rates and changed it to a 6 month window.

Kinda funny, mid July, 90+ degrees and people in the DC area are planning ski trips for December.
