What is a master-sub property set up in Hostfully? Please refer to this article: Managing calendars for a house and its sub-units

Step 1: Create a Booking.com account, property listing, (optional) room types, and enable Hostfully as the Channel Manager

Booking.com admin account page: https://admin.booking.com/

One listing or multiple listings? It depends on your tax rate and cleaning fee.

Only one tax rate and cleaning fee can be applied to one Booking.com listing. If your master and sub properties have different tax rates and cleaning fees, and you want to keep them that way on Booking.com, you'll need to create separate Booking.com listings in your account in - one listing per property - and continue to Step 2.

If you'd like to list both the whole house and the individual rooms on one Booking.com listing, for example: in Hostfully you have 5 properties: the whole house is Hotel Malibu, and the individual rooms are Room One, Room Two, etc... , on Booking.com you'll need to have 1 property listing for the whole house Hotel Malibu. On this property listing, create 6 room types - 5 for the individual rooms and 1 for the whole house Hotel Malibu.

Finallly, enable Hostfully as your Channel Manager. Please see the following article on getting this set up.
