Is there a feature to set guest arrival dates to at least seven days apart?

I just found out my condo association doesn't allow anything less than a weekly rental. They don't care if my bookings are less than a week, but they're telling me I cannot have more than one booking in a seven-day time period. I initially thought about having a fixed arrival day, but some people like to arrive on Saturday, some on Sunday.

To adjust for this, I'm currently setting a minimum stay to six nights with a forced turnover gap of one night. I would like to set my minimum nights to four or five.

The feature I think I'm looking for is a way to set my guests' arrival dates to at least seven days apart. Is that possible?

Yes, you can require a gap of a specified number of nights in between each booking:

That's sort of what I'm doing now with a six-night minimum and a required gap of one night. How can I make that required gap variable based on how many nights they stay?

In other words:

  • a six or greater night stay would have a required gap of one
  • a five-night stay would have a required gap of two
  • a four-night stay would have a required gap of three
