We consider a unit to be the bookable space within any property.
Single-unit properties are any properties in which you have a single bookable unit, be it a house, a villa, or a condo. Multi-unit properties are, by nature, a little more complex. These are typically hotel, hostel, condominium, and apartment buildings, or any other space that offers multiple bookable units.
We treat the two differently to save you time. Direct was built with independent hotels, hostels, condominiums, and other multi-unit properties in mind, and with the understanding that you shouldn’t have to recreate property details every time you create a new unit for a multi-unit property. Nor should you have to do the same for any identical (or nearly identical) units you have within that property, like hotel rooms or condominiums. To this end, Direct makes it easy to clone these details, dramatically reducing the need for time-consuming data duplication.
