Pros: Easy to use and once it is set up, it almost runs itself. John is great at quick communication and providing solutions if needed. I sell cabins and recommend Bookerville to all my clients when they choose to turn their cabin into a vacation rental.

Cons: There are several payment options built into the software, but I would like to see Venmo added as another option as well. Overall, the product is phenomenal, especially for the price!

Pros: Automated reminder email notices going out with ease (ie cleaner reminder, welcome email to guests, etc)

Cons: Subscription Price keeps going up. Also the coupon codes do not work very well. Would like potentials renters to be able to use a variety of coupon codes to book directly on my website. Have asked for changes but no luck

Overall: organizing rentals, running reports at the end of year

Pros: It makes property management automated where limited manual interaction is needed.
The Reporting function is terrific and much needed since the typical rental sites have very poor reporting.

Cons: It takes quite a bit of time to setup initially, especially if you do not have any HTML experience. The support staff is great to work with though and once it is setup, things are very automated.

Overall: The ability to manage our rental property with very limited manual involvement. The typical rental sites have very limited functionality and reporting. This software fills the big gaps left from those rental sites.

Pros: Cost - great value!
Features -
- channel manager available
- integrates a calendar and booking feature into my website
- calendar sync
- how to videos
- easy to use
- cleaners have access to their schedule on line

Cons: - The software is set up for 90% of all properties. I've only got 5 properties but between my main 2, they sleep over 40 people. To keep these properties booked I base my rates on a few different features. My main Con, is on Guest count, in summer, my base rate is based on 22 or less on my larger property. In spring and fall, based on 18 or less, and winter 12 or less. Above those counts, there is a per person rate, summer, because of pool maintenance its higher , winter its less. Bookerville's allows me to set one guest count allowed under base rate and one rate per person per not above that. So the rates aren't as flexible as I'd like

- its a bear setting up the Rental Agreement.. especially if you've got a detailed one... sleeping over 40 people, with pools, hot tubs, water front.

- no phone # to call. Got a question, you'll email and get an answer, usually pretty quick. But is not always easy to explain the issue which kind of makes it difficult.

- my cleaners have IPhones. The schedule is available in calendar form, but for the iPhone, it is not clear the exact check in or out dates.

Even with these cons, the software is well worth it. The Pros far outweighs these and are some many features, I've still haven't begun to use.

Overall: It makes my Life easier

Bookerville saved me life!

Pros: The fact that while I am sleeping, all my emails are sent every day! Love this. I also love having all 7 property calendars in one location.

Cons: That it doesn't integrate w/ Quickbooks. That would make it ideal. I knew going into it it didn't. I did about 3-4 didn't Free trials w/ other companies before settling w/ Bookerville. The pros outweighed the cons in my eye.

Overall: That my life is not so complicated. I used to carry around paper calendars for each property. I had then. But going to Bookerville let me expand & now we are about to open up #7!

Pros: Bookerville is very easy to use/user friendly and has a comprehensive overview of our lettings business,

Cons: sometimes bookerville is offline
if a guest has more than one apartment with different dates it can't be all added to the one booking. A separate booking request has to be completed.

Truly amazing and so easy to use. Reports and Taxes are the best function for sure.

Pros: The reporting is probably my most favorite feature about this software , you can pull reports for just about anything from vacancy reports to how much one property produces in revenue vs/cost. Its a huge time save.

Cons: I wish it had a more robust calendar syncying system within bookerville not a pay for service for managing multiple rental sources to eliminate any overbooking.

Bookerville has been perhaps the most responsive consumer experience i have ever had.

Pros: We are a small company and needed a few plug ins (such as a sync'ed calendar) to work with our website. Bookerville has gone out of its way to offer very flexible features but the most impressive thing is the fact that they get back to you at all hours of the day and are very flexible to work with.

Overall: As used previously, i was avoid development of calendar support by using Bookerville. Not only was it a calendar it synchronized with other applications.
We are about to under go phase 2 where we will take advantage of all the other features to include billing, notification, etc.

I am really happy with the software and would recommend it to anyone.

Pros: The software is very easy to use and update. The features with being able to synchronize calendar with Airbnb and other listing sights is very helpful. Our office staff had no problem learning the program and the technician support is excellent and they are terrific about adding new features and report functions that make our daily tasks more efficient.

I am extremely thrilled about the work order feature and housekeeping applications that have been recently added. The staff at Bookerville are very competent and my vacation rental business with 65+ properties has had many daily tasks and functions made more efficient and productive since I have started using the Bookerville Reservation Software Program.

Cons: I would like to see the owner statement reporting section with more features and capability and the software technicians at Bookerville have already provided feedback that they are going to be enhancing the reporting features.

Overall: Reduced work load
Less scheduling errors
Easier payment features
Better able to advertise and synchronize calendars with other listing sites

Cons: Training on the platform from setup to new features is limited.
No actual website... there are widgets that you can insert into a website but you have to have your own site and know how to set it up and use it.

Overall: I have been using Bookerville for nearly 2 years. In that time I have seen many progressive changes on the platform and while it doesn't offer everything I need it provides 90% of the functionality. For the owner/property manager you will find the software relatively intuitive and with integrations to channel managers you can get visibility that the big guys have. Certainly a recommend for me.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try.

Pros: If there are issues customer service agent will find them. Usually they are the users issues. You really need to look close, don't rush and take your time.

Cons: Most of the time its ME the users issues. I always try to rush things, and if I read closer I can find the solution. If you cant find the solution an email to customer service agent will fix the issue

Overall: I at times have issues with what I am doing on bookerville. The issues are my issues. If I hit a wall I emailmy rep and he finds a way to send me in the right direction.
Bookerville has what I need. I am now trying to offer a 1 night weekend stay but I need to increase the rate. customer service agent showed me how to get this done.
Once you work this engine a few times it becomes easier and easier.

Pros: It was pretty much dummy proof, the instructions to set up were step by step, numbered and when there was a question, management was very quick to reach out to answer questions. We used the software primarily for reservations, and intend to use it as we grow to monitor housekeeping

Cons: When you select the date, sometimes it is hard to know if you are picking the day or the day after, need to edit every once in a while.

Overall: I manage 15 vacation rental properties and have tested three properties this year with Bookerville as we worked to overcome obstacles created within the Homeaway/VRBO market. The software after a slight learning curve was easy to operate, offered basic functions as well as very good integration with our credit card processing company. As with any software there is a learning curve, the management was very quick to get back in terms of customer support. This year we will be adding another 20 properties once we open our new tiny house resort.

Recommendations to other buyers: I am not a computer rocket scientist and it is very manageable to get your property up and listed and allow guests to self pay.

Overall: I was looking for an automated way to manage our vacation home in the Outer Banks when HomeAway started with booking fees last year and negatively impacted my bookings. Bookerville was just what I was looking for. From managing our rentals, to creating automated emails for our guest, to creating an easy to use calendar for our prospective renters to book our home to the easy credit card integration, Bookerville has greatly simplified our lives. In fact, I recommended it to our management company, and now they are using Bookerville.

Pros: auto mailing

Cons: Not South African friendly with our local marketing channels.

Overall: I use 2 programmes to run my apartment rentals. The property is in South Africa and I was going to discontinue using Bookerville as it is unable to update my calendar on the marketing sites that I use in South Africa.
However, the other property management tool that I use does not have the auto e-mail capability of Bookerville and this is such a vital part of efficiently communicating with guests. In fact I would say it is the most essential part of the property management.

Pros: Makes it possible to manage rentals without a rental agency.

Cons: It is expensive and a typical user probably won't need all of the features. Subscription rates has been increasing every year.

Overall: I have been using this software for the last four years for a single vacation property I own. Every feature that I needed was in the software plus many features I never used. It does make it possible for a typical owner to manage rentals without going through a rental agency. The annual subscription fee has gone up by 32% over the last 3 years. They should offer a lower price version with less features for those with only one property. Wasn't planning on renewing for the fifth year unless I get a better rate.

Recommendations to other buyers: Offer a scaled-down version with a fixed subscription rate .

Vendor Response

by Bookerville on February 16, 2017

This otherwise excellent customer (we love you Stephen!) is unhappy that we were gradually raising prices on older (grandfathered) accounts. But the price we offered him is still less than half the current rate, which is itself well below our competition's pricing, per our research.

Pros: Pretty much everything! The fact that you can set it up in such a way to automatically generate and send documents and secure bookings practically all on its own is just incredible

Cons: That you have to RE ENTER all the scheduled payments after you have taken the time to build out all the scheduled payments. We wish there was a way to adjust the payment schedule instead of knocking all of the out. The booking amounts have a recalculate button. We wish we could just add the additional scheduled payments to match the recalculated total :-)

Overall: Bookerville has completely changed our lives for the better in so many ways! We are a small corporate housing company that has always operated out of QUICKBOOKS over the years to manage our properties and our rent and bills etc. We never could find a property management system affordable enough until we found BOOKERVILLE! Its incredible. Would and do recommend it to everyone in Property Management we know!

Recommendations to other buyers: Not at the moment. But as I think of any suggestions I will email them.

Pros: Ease of function. There is a small learning curve but not difficult even for my 48 year old brain. The videos and forum is helpful

Cons: Not really a con but I do like how Airbnb treats its calendar. I like that they will block off a day prior or after every reservation for cleaning..etc automatically. As it is now in our 4 bdrm because I don't check-in a guest the day someone departs I have to manually block off that night as a maintenance booking so no one tries to book it.

Overall: I was on the fence about getting software. I'd been doing fine via Word and manually inputting/adding/organizing everything myself for 10+ years on 2 properties. Was it going to be worth the additional cost yearly? Well I've had the software a year and would NOT want to be without it. Its such a time saver and as a mom of 3 who runs her own business that is worth its weight in GOLD! I love the simplicity. I love that everything looks professional. I LOVE the GATEWAY with PayPros/Authorize. I love that the info is in the cloud and no matter WHERE I am, I can access what I need. I just can't say enough. The price is perfect for us. We don't make a mint off our rentals and don't charge a fortune so I appreciate the pricing Bookerville offers. I'm still finding new things along the way with this software and each new discovery makes my life a little bit easier. I've had a few questions along the way and both times my questions were answered within 24 hrs. The videos have been helpful as well. I just did my quarterly taxes and WOW! So much easier inputting needed dates and pushing a button. Time Saver!!

Recommendations to other buyers: No but I'm happy to share as ideas come to me ;) I like the idea of the mobile app and that they've even put one out. I wish it were a bit more streamlined but that may be above this pricepoint and could very well be more due to user error (my lack of knowledge). Its one of the things I'll be tinkering with using over next couple months....

Pros: flexibility to customize it to my exact needs for each booking if needed

Cons: setting up the rates, length of stay and check in date restrictions - I only do it once a year so I have had to write instructions to remind myself of the steps involved - a bit cumbersome

Overall: I have been using Bookerville since 2014 and I cannot say enough good things about the software, my workflow using their software and the customer service I receive. Bookerville allows as much or as little customization as you want for most templates. Automatized e-mails are easy to set up and safe me tons of time. I only have one property and I manage it myself, but I would hate to go back to doing it all without Bookerville! The only issue I have with the software is that setting the rates, length of stay and rules for check in days is always a bit cumbersome but I only do it once a year so it is no big deal. Customer service is fast and personalized and in the USA!

Recommendations to other buyers: I would like to receive a notice when someone posts a review rather than having to run the review report to see if they did.

Cons: Would love to be one stop shop - to be able to upload my signed rental agreements into the guest page so everything is there. Also DO NOT like the change on the notes section where you now have to click to edit. Liked it before when you can just type and save ----- Would love to see a "Refund Security Deposit" yes or no box? When I get bookings from say Airbnb I don't need to send the guest the SD when they book say thru bookerville or VRBO I do have to send them the SD I am constantly going back and forth checking .. then I am just writing over and over in your note section send or don't send. A box would be great! also with that, a box as to where the deposit is/with for example deposit is still in paypal or deposit is with airbnb etc.. or checking account... does that make sense?

Overall: I have been with Bookerville for over 2 years now and I love it. The automatic email sent takes the worry out of forgetting to send guests their welcome packet and payment reminders. The booking process on my website looks professional and it is really user-friendly for my guests! If I ever have an issue with the program (one time and it was my issue, not theirs) or not understanding how something works I get a response via email within 10 min! I have even called and they pick up! I love the integration with PayPal again making it really easy for online bookings! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE !

Comments: Bookerville allows me to pay an annual fee and not a % of my bookings. Which is alway preferable in my opinion. The support staff has always been available when i have a question. He responds in less than an hour, usually within 5 minutes. I am glad I discovered this software. I have been a devoted Bookerville client for over 5 years and will always depend on him and his exception product.

Pros: Ease of use, dependability, and customer support

Cons: None

Overall: The ability to customize Bookerville to have it manage our three properties is unbelievable. Only one of our properties is jointly owned while the other two are owned separately and each requires different options to meet the needs and goals of each property owner. Despite that, we are able to individually set options, including custom emails, and even payment options on one dashboard. Managing a reservation from pre-booking to requesting a review after departure is now a simple act of checking the dashboard each day.

Recommendations to other buyers: Highly recommend using this software.

Pros: Easy to read calendar & automatic emails.

Overall: I started w/ one vacation rental....had a paper calendar...then I had 4 a few years later. I was always seen carrying around my 4 paper calendars & would drop everything to respond to an inquiry no matter where I was...then I day I thought, there has got to be a better way! I felt like I was always typing out the same emails with quotes, directions etc.. Then I researched booking software, did 2 other 30 day trials w/ other companies & I didn't like it. My world was changed the day I logged onto Bookerville & started my 30 day subscription! It took about a 1/2 day to get familiar w/ it & enter my 4 properties! I was absolutely besides myself when I woke up the next day & 10 emails were sent out on my behalf! The owner, was a phone call away & helped me get it going when I had a question. I know run 6 properties, there is no way I could've done it w/out Bookerville! I've had other companies contact me to switch. That will never happen. I love when guest book directly on my website & say that my booking system is so easy! Thanks Bookerville,
Signed, One happy customer in the Smoky Mountains!

Pros: Ease of use, price is great considering what you get. Guests really like that they can make a reservation so simply.

Cons: Sometimes guests have had trouble seeing the online calendar but I have never personally had a problem.

Overall: My husband researched many reservation software and found that Bookerville would fit us best. That was 4 years ago and I can't begin to tell you how profound the change has been. Bookerville has made it so we are not tied to the phone, and the guests love it. It is so easy to use and functional. The owner is quick to reply if we have an issue and is constantly making improvements to better meet managers needs.

Comments: We've been using Bookerville for many years to manage our 25 vacation rental properties in the Catskill Mountains, NY . Bookerville's software is a big company product with small company values. Like... suggestions are always listened to and frequently incorporated into the software. Emails are returned quickly. Questions are answered and followed up on.
The software is constantly evolving (with user input along the way!) and the changes have turned out to be typically very good and very helpful.
we've looked at others, we like bookerville the best.

Pros: It's web based, and affordable, exports to accounting programs, links to vacation rental listing site calendars. Has automated emails to guests, owners, and staff.

Cons: Very little. The size of email template preview doesn't allow size change.

Overall: I have been managing vacation and annual rentals for over 10 years. I have used several different software packages over the years, but when I needed to get a more mobile solution I went searching. (Side note - I am a software developer and if I had the time I would have written my own.)

I found Bookerville and was intrigued with the easy to use interface. Then after the free 30 trial I bought it. I haven't been disappointed yet. The company support is outstanding. Bug issues are addressed promptly. Product enhancement requests are encouraged.

What I love about it - it's very easy to get your properties setup and start scheduling your guests. It's also affordable, entry level costs with full features that you could pay so much more....I know I did it the hard way for too long, now I have automatic emails to guests, cleaning crews and owners, calendars that link to my listing site calendars, income and expense tracking, etc. There so many other features that I needed and it met the requirements.

I highly recommend it, although to use all of the features will take some time to set up. The default email templates are ok to use and customizing them is simple. Online help is good, and the forums are helpful. Most set up questions have all been asked and answered and are available to review.

Recommendations to other buyers: Ease of setup and use. Novice users can be productive quickly. Online help and forums are available.

Overall: BookerVille is an awesome start up platform. The customer service is great and they always get back to me right away. They are constantly evolving the software and adding new things. Once they can get 100% integrated with VRBO, FlipKey & other online rental sites they will be the best bang for your buck out there!

Recommendations to other buyers: Make it so you can upload more than one photo at a time and you can move them around easier than one up or down at a time (takes forever is you have a lot of photos). Keep up the great work!

Pros: I like that it automatically sends my clients email informing them of payments, updates, and check-in information. Everything is neatly organized and all within a click of a button. I can set up a form and have it send email x amount of days before my client checks in. I also like that it automatically updates my other calendars on Homeaway.

Cons: Having so much to choose from sometimes gets confusing but with so may different people using the software it caters to all. I would also love to see an app for owners to be able to use on the go.

Overall: We have been using Bookerville for many years and love the support that they give us. They are always quick to answer emails and will give a call if it is needed. I have told others who are just getting into the "rental" world about Bookerville and they agree that it is a great booking site that has everything that you need. If it doesn't all you have to do is suggest it and who knows your idea might be the next big improvement! Excellent service, excellent site!

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't be overwhelmed by all that is available. The tutorials that they have come in handy are great!

Comments: I have been using Bookerville for almost a year now, and I love it! I can have my guest either go directly to Bookerville to book their reservation, which by the way, they all say it is very easy to do, or when I get bookings from other sites I can easily go in and add that booking to Bookerville. I love that you can set up all the automatic emails; from sending the rental agreements to sending the cleaning crew a new scheduled cleaning! I have automatic emails set up for reminders on payments and I have my welcome packet go out.. I don't have to worry about a thing!!! I love that you can track where you got your bookings from and the notes box, so you can remember discounts etc that you may have talked to your guests about. On all of my marketing I have them go directly to my website and book through Bookerville, before I would have to field all the calls and do quotes by hand, I had a printed calendar that I used, so if I got a call I would have to find the calendar to first see if it was even available. A real pain!!! I don't have to do any of that now with Bookerville. It is so sweet to see an email from Bookerville that someone has booked your house and you didn't have to do a thing!! If I do have a question about the use of the Bookerville, there are so many great tutorial videos that you can use or I email them directly and they ALWAYS respond, the customer care is absolutely wonderful! It is by far worth every dime!! A little dime at that.. it is a great price!!

Comments: The individually customizable properties are equally more and less convenient, depending on how you look at it. Ultimately, we joined Bookerville because of this capability, and the flexibility allowing us to use multiple managers (and individualize their content). However, it takes an overwhelming amount of time if you're trying to move an already established organization (and all of its contents) over.

FAVORITES:
Easy reporting,
***multiple user set-up (managers, home owners, emails, etc.)
customizability, affordability
***customer service.

CONS:
- I think automatically scheduled emails are great. But, certain things need consideration and/or clarification. For example, if the "status" of a reservation is customizable, then we should be able to use those statuses to trigger email responses. Also, none of them mention last-minute bookings and its implications. Without a predictable outcome, the convenience of auto-trigger can have an opposite effect.

There are a few other nit picks I have, but the point is that we're VERY PLEASED with this product, its user friendliness, and the available staff (besides, we can address our issues using the forums provided to us).

Comments: Bookerville can't be beat! The cost is right and the quality is AWESOME! I can't say enough about this company. I'm not the only one: I recently just built a vacation rental website for a friend and integrated Bookerville for them...they LOVE it! I could go on and on and on, but I'll just say that Bookerville gets an A+ from this girl!

Perfect for managing 1 or several Vacation Rentals!

Comments: I am a VR owner and manage it myself. Bookerville was very easy to set up and when I had a question, John and his team were very responsive. Bookerville provides everything I need to manage my property myself including auto-response emails, scheduled emails to my cleaning crew and monthly reports (for transoccupancy tax and vacancy reporting). I don't have a dedicated website for my rental anymore, but I don't need one. I use a couple of the popular VR websites and I can sync my calendar with those. The only drawback is that some of the VR sites now make it very hard to respond to inquiries or book outside of their system. In some cases, Bookerville has a work around for that, but in some cases not. I use this for just one property but I can see that the features Bookerville offers would be valuable for management companies that manage several properties. And the price is right too! I would recommend Bookerville to single VR owners or management companies.

Wish I had found this sooner!

Comments: + customer rep has been an extreme pleasure to work with, as have their whole support staff
+ The ease of use of the website makes it simple to train and educate others
+ Love the additions and notifications of them
+Price point per property is perfect and best I have seen

I would recommend Bookerville to anyone. In only one year of use, their auto-responder alone has increased our web-bookings by 68% year over year (2013 vs 2014).

Bookerville competes with the big software giants at a fraction of the cost!

Comments: Bookerville has helped me to take my small vacation rental business to the next level without breaking the bank. I feel like we place a lot of demands on what we expect out of the software and it often outperforms my expectations. The software is easy to train employees and contractors to use and it gives you options to customize and "opt-out" or turn off those features that you don't need or use. I stumbled across the software while searching online for something to help me organize my new rental business and after speaking at length with the owner about all my questions, I decided to give them a try. I have never regretted the decision since. The last thing that I want to mention is Bookerville's forums/blog/FAQs. It really is an open book to discuss issues and feature requests. Bookerville, in my opinion, is the best software out there for the money!

Comments: I've been using Bookerville for a few years now. The features that I like about Bookerville are to name a few:
-the email templates
-the email triggers
-total control I have over the estimates
-the add-on features that allow me to add for pets or over guest bookings
-the reports to help me pay for taxes and see where I am at financially as well as bookings
-the powerful rate-setting features
-the Paypal integration that allows customers to book and pay.

The only drawback are that there are so many features, it is sometimes hard to wrap your head around it all.

Can Not Live Without "Bookerville"

Comments: I have a portfolio of around 50 properties. Some Rental properties, some just privately owned holiday homes. For over 10 years I struggled to co-ordinate and manage these properties, whilst looking for a suitable Property Management software to cater for all my needs. Then I found Bookerville.

I have been using Bookerville for the past 10 months and it has enabled me to not only improve the service I supply to my existing clients, but to take on new clients without hesitation as I know that I have a Management system that I can rely on.

Although US based, the support and service received from John & Cindy Amoto (owners) is second to non, especially as I am based in Spain, with clients from varying parts of the world.

I chose this system, not only based on price, but also its adaptability. Other software's are so rigid. The Set-up process is so simple & straight forward, but John is always willing to help and even to install new and specific enhancements to meet my individual needs, to the point of liaising with other 3rd party suppliers to ensure processes like calendar synchronization are working correctly.

The plus sides to Bookerville are endless, and they are improving all the time. I would recommend this software to any property manager or individual. I look forward to the on going improvements that are always just around the corner.

Bookerville rocks!

Comments: Bookerville is amazing. As a vacation rental property owner, I used to spend a lot of time coordinating the bookings for our guests. Bookerville has changed all of that. It allows our guests to see available dates and book them, all without multiple phone calls/emails. I am able to quickly and easily set rates and automatically send emails to our guests and cleaning staff. All of this has made my life much easier, freeing me up for other property management duties. The features and flexibility that Bookerville offers are better than any other booking system out there. The customer service is incredible, too. Very responsive and accommodating! Thank you, Bookerville!

Comments: Good software starts with a thorough understanding of the market it serves. Bookerville knows vacation rentals. If you want to escape total reliance on HomeAway, VRBO, etc. and build your own branded website with interactive calendars and bookings - then Bookerville is the best I have found. It has the breadth of features to cover most needs and the depth of functionality to be flexible and mindful of the nuances of the business.

The interface is well thought out. The how-to videos let you learn to operate the software quickly and in bite-sized chunks. Support is responsive and no question is too dumb.

Comments: We own vacation rental properties and I have been looking for a reliable and easy to use booking system for a very long time. We looked at several systems and tested a few and nothing really worked well. When I found Bookerville and was at first pretty skeptical. We have been using it now for two years and I can only say that it is a terrific system. Flexible to cater to just about every situation you encounter and very easy to use and if you have a question, they answer you right away. It certainly is not like that with almost all other providers.
We even had a situation where I wanted something which the system did not allow and just with a two emails back and forth, they built my wish into their system.
I think that because of Bookerville, our bookings have gone up 25 to 30%
There is only one word, BRILLIANT!

Comments: I have been using Bookerville for a couple of years now. From the very beginning, after a long research into a booking system which would allow ease of communication between guests and the owner of the property I manage, I came across "Bookerville".
All features are a indispensable help for me to manage quotes for enquiries, manage confirmed bookings with ease of invoices. Reminders sent automatically to guests for payments, receipted immediately through the system. Automated reminders to the owner and cleaner after guest departure.
The accounts can be set up, which I don't use a great deal, due to the fact that I only look after the one property for a friend. However, it is a great tool to have.
As long as the user keeps up to date with all the improvements, it is a wonderful programme.

Comments: I have 4 vacation rental homes and spend a lot of time providing the same quotes over and over. So I needed a way to provide professional looking email quotes. I can finally do that with Bookerville. Of course Bookerville provides many, many more features, but what I find incredibly helpful is the fact that I can incorporate the Calendar and the ability for my customers to get quotes right from my website, then follow through right to booking. It is very seamless for my customers and that's what works.
The email templates are also very helpful. I have used Google Canned Responses for years but this is what I really needed.
It was simple to set up, and help is just a few clicks away. I have found the Bookerville staff more than helpful.

Comments: I have been using Bookerville for almost 3 years now. I do not know what I would do without their service. I starting using them because I was getting overwhelmed with reservations (I have 1 home only) and I was getting scared that I was going to double book my home, so I searched online and found Bookerville. If you have a Vacation Home Bookerville is required.

Comments: I was looking for a product that would allow me to modify it enough to make it exactly fit my needs. Bookerville was the answer! I have 3 properties that I rent out for weekly vacations. I have setup Bookerville to automatically notify my vendors when to clean the houses, turn on/off pool heat, and perform maintenance. In addition, I have 10 automated emails that go out to my guests. These include driving directions, welcome emails, reminder of departure checklist, etc. It does all of this flawlessly. I am expecting about 120 weeks booked this year and with approx. 15 emails per booking, that's 1,800 automated emails. I also use Bookerville for all of the payment processing. My guests can pay through paypal or a authorize.net and I don't have to be involved at all.

It is an amazing software. The best part is John and Cindy(Bookerville owners) are available if you need anything and are constantly making improvements to the software.

Happy to have switched to Bookerville!

Comments: I recently purchased a 7 unit B&B whereby the previous owner/manager utilised a very user unfriendly and expensive short term rental property management software. After countless hours of my time being consumed to perform even the simplest of property reservation and reporting tasks , I set upon looking for something better. I evaluated close to 15 online vacation rental management software applications before choosing Bookerville, and have never looked back. Bookerville ideally suits my reservation, online payment, state tax and income tracking needs. It is simple to use yet contains a high number of very useful features, making it perfect when managing single or multiple unit vacation rentals. The customer support team is responsive and the price is affordable. I highly recommend Bookerville to anyone managing short term rental properties.

Comments: I just survived my first "busy season" using all the features of Bookerville. I am very happy I made the switch from another management system! I really like how simple it is to set up email templates that are particular to my booking process. I also really have appreciated how available the owners were to answer the many questions I had on the way to understand the process.

There are probably additional features that I can implement in the future and I am looking forward to a long relationship with Bookerville. I now have new emails in place that I didn't use before that make our guest's process seamless and communication a breeze.

Thanks to Jon and Cindy Amato for a great product!

Comments: I have been a customer of Bookerville for over a year and I have to say that it has simplified my interactions with prospective renters as well as keep my guests up to date on payment due dates, and arrival/departure instructions, etc. I am able to automate the responses from popular listing sites like VRBO/Home Away, FlipKey, etc. So I don't spend all day just informing people of no vacancy/vacancy to my properties. I can send FAQ;s and automatic notes to my maids. My maids use a handy app on their phones to tell me the place has been cleaned and inspected for damages so I can confidently tell a guest if they are able to check-in early or if I need to withhold a guest's deposit for incidentals. It has also given me an ability to report off of the income I have made for taxes, or compare the income from different marketing channels and compare that to the expenses incurred for the properties. It would be helpful to have a more responsive design on their application to use it on a mobile device more effectively but whenever I needed help Bookerville support has been outstanding in servicing my request and have been open to my enhancement suggestions. They are always announcing new features right when I need them. It has really helped me manage my rental business more effectively.
