Connecting/syncing a listing that was imported from Airbnb

Once your Airbnb account is connected, the listings will be pulled from Airbnb and displayed in Guesty. After you've completed the initial account connection, you'll need to sync your Distribution page dashboard in Guesty to view new listings created in Airbnb — meaning the dashboard won't automatically sync the updated list of listings.

The next step is to connect and/or import your Airbnb listings to Guesty — this includes existing listings, as well as, future/new listings created in Airbnb after importing to Guesty.
To connect a listing to Guesty, the listing must be listed, active, and not suspended.

Follow the instructions below to import, sync, and/or connect additional listings from Airbnb to Guesty.

Before you begin

Below is some important information to help you prepare your listings for the importing process.

  • Guesty is unable to import guest details from reservations that have check-out dates prior to the date you connected your Airbnb account to Guesty
    Airbnb restricts this information for privacy reasons. 
  • Make sure to check that your property type in Airbnb is supported and syncs with Guesty
    Some property types on Airbnb aren't supported on Guesty.
    Learn how to change your listing's property type.
  • Photos will be imported from Airbnb into Guesty with a lower resolution, and won't sync with Guesty after the initial import
    If additional pictures are added later in Airbnb, they will need to be added manually into Guesty. We recommend removing any images that were imported from Airbnb, and manually adding them into Guesty.
