Tripadvisor receives the "Summary" and "Space" description fields as one field, combined together.
The fields share the character count and must be between 300-5,000 characters long.
Failure to meet this requirement can cause the listing to become unlisted from Tripadvisor.


  • Must be 400 to 10,000 characters long
    When Guesty sends the description to Vrbo, it combines all of the listing's description fields and sends them as a single description.

    • Summary
    • The Space
