You can also add requirements for certain months (seasons), specific dates, or Fridays and Saturdays (weekends).  To do this select "Add a requirement for seasons or weekends".  You can set multiple requirements.  Also, for most, you can set the specific date of the week the guest must check in on.

I do not have Fridays and Saturdays as an option, only during specific dates or during a time period far into 2018.

As well, I do not have "Friday and Saturday" as an option. Only three month date ranges and 'Specific Dates'. How do you set a weekend two night minimum stay?

why is there no ability to set a maximum stay for specific dates.  I am trying desperately to allow people to book for a minimum of 3 nights but not to be able to stay through the changeover date.  I.e. our cleaner can only come on a Saturday and ideally we have Saturday to Saturday bookings, so we have a min and a max booking of 7 days.  I want to open this up so that someone, for example can check in on Monday and stay until Friday.  There seems to be no way of doing this at the moment, because if I open up a Monday check in they then have a maximum stay of 7 nights, but I don't want them stay any later than Friday night - any ideas?!

 

Thanks!
