Properties - Check-in & Check-out

This support article is under construction 👷

Please pardon the incompleteness while we work on this. We have made the article visible in the meantime because the content may be useful.

Configuring your check-in and check-out times is an important and required step in setting up your OwnerRez property. If check-in and check-out times are not specifically set, the default times are a 4 PM check-in time and an 11 AM check-out time.

Change Check-in and Check-out Times

Users can change their property's check-in, including a check-in window and check-out times, by navigating to their specific Property < Rules < Change < Defaults < Check-in and Check-out.

Check-in Window

While not usually a problem with smart locks, coordinating guest check-ins with keyed locks can be challenging if guests arrive after business hours to pick up their rental keys in person. It is important to inform guests about the specific business hours during which they can collect keys for their vacation rental.

OwnerRez users who are Airbnb API-connected may have noticed the availability for guests to request a check-in window on Airbnb's platform.

Users can set their check-in window times while setting their regular check-in and check-out times and selecting the Latest check-in time.

Early Check-in or Late Check-out Times

It's important to note that Airbnb guests have the option to request early check-in or late check-out times. Therefore, it's wise for hosts to review their bookings regularly to be aware of these requests.

Individual bookings will note the early check-in or late check-out times noted in orange boxes in the Overview < Dates section. This indicates that a guest has been granted early check-in or late checkout.

Individual Booking Early Check-in and Late Check-out Times

When viewing bookings in the Month and Year views, users can hover over the booking to see the early check-in or late check-out times that are noted in orange boxes.

On the Booking Ribbon view, bookings with early check-in or late check-out time requests will display a small vertical red bar at their beginning (check-in) or end (check-out).
