Guest number adults/children configuration

Level 1

I believe that the host should have the ability to configure combinations of maximum number of adults/children per reservation.

For example: I have a listing with a King bed and a Twin sofa bed, where a couple with 1 child would fit comfortably in the king bed and another adult would fit comfortably in the sofa bed. So the listing can allow 3 adults plus 1 child, but only 3 adults if there are no children, because 4 adults wouldn't fit comfortably.

Currently, airbnb doesn't let you discriminate between adults and children when choosing max number of guests.

@Iván140 you are always able to choose your maximum number of guests and if you supply accurate details and pics then the guests can also choose their modes of sleeping. i have had people message and ask if I can increase my numbers to six because they 'can see plenty of room' sometimes this is okay and I have an extra floor mattress which I keep under one of the queen beds sometimes used in summer for an extra child , which I make up on request .but to me there is no sleeping in the day rooms , if you fit in the bedrooms and people co sleep with their children or their grandmas or whomsoever then thats fine , but everyone should be counted .I also have a porta cot which I provide free of charge but each sleeper takes up space ,big or small.

We would like this feature as well.


Our apartments can sleep 5, but we only want maximum of 4 adults.



We have no way of offering to 2 adults, 3 children. For example. does offer this flexibility.
