Hostaway

Hostaway is the all-in-one vacation rental software you already love. TIDY integrates with it to automate your cleanings and take your business even further. 

Benefits of Integrating

Connecting them is straightforward and gives you the best of both worlds, plus:

  1. A bird’s eye view of all your properties, reservations, and cleanings 
  2. Save time by automatically setting up cleaning requests. That’s right—no phone tag with cleaners. 
  3. Bring all the cleaners you work with and love to TIDY and make their life easier, too. Yep. It's free for them.
  4. Get all the tracking you want and need: upcoming jobs, completed ones, and what turnovers need to be done. 
  5. Integrating is as simple as clicking a couple of buttons; see below.

To integrate TIDY with your Hostaway account:

  1. Log into both accounts, if you haven't already done so
  2. Copy your Account ID and Hostaway Private API key
  3. On your TIDY home page, look for and click on "Integrations" in the left menu bar
  4. Click "Add Integration" 
  5. A new screen will pop-up, select “Hostaway” among the available options
  6. Paste your information in the indicated fields
  7. Now TIDY will pull all of your listings as addresses into your TIDY account.
  8. Under each address, select "Automatic Booking" and configure it according to your specific needs, such as check-in/check-out time and types of cleaning.

How the Integration Works?

  1. After you integrate, TIDY will pull all your listings from Hostaway to create them as properties in TIDY.
  2. When a new guest reservation appears on your Hostaway account, it is also automatically added to your "Reservations" tab within TIDY
  3. Now TIDY knows the reservation details and when to automatically book a cleaning between guests check-in and check-out
  4. The turnover cleaning follows the instructions you set under "Automatic Booking"
  5. The Pros you already have listed under the "My Pros" section in the app each will have the opportunity to accept the job in the order you previously determined
  6. Once a Pro is assigned the job, they will receive your instructions, access the To-Do List (if you have one), and communicate with you through TIDY.
  7. TIDY will push the cleanliness status to Hostaway after each cleaning is done.
  8. Done! Now your property is ready for the next guest, without you having to worry about a single thing.
