How about a simple public search function? Being able to search by number of bedrooms/bathrooms plus amenities (i.e. hottub, oceanfront, etc.) would be awesome. I would think it would be a fairly easy integration by including, for example, a number of bedrooms module (via drop down menu selection), etc. in the property set-up tab that would then connect all of your properties with that number for that field. The search function could then be integrated into a website via iframe as some of your other features are. This would then enable a guest to search and narrow all of your properties by pool, hot tub, number of bedrooms, sleeps #, etc.

I'm glad you brought this up. We are in fact developing such a feature, and I would like to take this opportunity to ask the community to help us build a list of property features that should be included in this "amenities" list.
Here's what we have so far:
- Hot tub
- Basket Ball
- Ceiling Fans
- Hair Dryers
- Coffee Maker
- Iron and Board
- Distance to Water (covers beach, lake, river)
- Distance to Ski Slopes
What else? Please list more here if you have ideas. Also, if you have ideas for how to further describe each feature. For example: for "Pool", do we want to specify heated or not? Size? Diving board? Slide? Lighted?
Thanks for your feedback in helping us shape this new feature.

Glad to see this coming, soon I hope!
Ocean view (or water view) in addition to Ocean front (water front) would be nice. You can be a block away and in some cases not see the water. Also somehow being able to distinguish between distance from which body of water you are referring when you say distance (sound side or ocean side).
Also, add elevator
