Features of Family Vacation Home™


Family Vacation Home™ is a feature rich program designed to assist families in the management of collective vacation property. Below is a list and explanation of the major features included in the program.

Reservation Calendar


The reservation calendar on Family Vacation Home™ is a simple calendar that allows family members to book the family vacation property without conflicting with each other. Also, the home administrator can set rules that dictate how members may book reservations. For example, the home administrator can specify a minimum amount of time that must elapse before a member may book a second reservation. The home administrator can also specify a requirement for the number of days a reservation must be booked in advance, and how much time must be allowed for cleaning after a reservation.
