New user here, but wondering whether anyone can help me out.

When I tried to test out my listing/ get my friend to request a booking, it says 'dates are not available" even though I've got them listed as available.

@David7982 Yep it says that for me as well.

Not sure what could cause this I am afraid. Perhaps call Airbnb and ask them.

honestly, I've never seen the message "these dates are not available" here on Airbnb.

If dates are not available, or check-in is not allowed on some days then they are light grey on the calendar and impossible to select.

If there is a minimum stay it is shown in a bubble (yours is set to min 2 nights)

So , yes, you should contact Airbnb through Twitter, Facebook or Contac- us link

@David7982  one thing came to my mind... did you set the prices? Bc if you didn't it would explain why it is impossible to book

It is rather simple:

Your listing is not (yet) in the search system, so it is not bookable.

Wait until this link gives a result:

If you published the listing very recent, wait for at least 24 hours after publishing.

If still "no result" then something is wrong and you need to call  Airbnb

Maybe your listing hadn't finished fully propagating through the internet earlier.  I entered dates over the Canadian/US Labour/Labor Day weekend, and the dates were available.
