For calendars, the type of connection with this channel is a bidirectional ical synchronization. Ical sync means calendars only. See the explanation here.
That is, reservations and availability are synchronized, but it is not possible to synchronize prices with Homeaway / VRBO.
For prices & min. nights, as VRBO / HomeAway don't provide an official interface for price and availability synchronization for any channel manager software, Smoobu has developed our own innovative solution.
You can now connect Prices and Minimum stays for VRBO/HomeAway from Smoobu! The connection for availability/bookings are still managed via iCal as usual. We are always happy to receive feedback if something is not working as it should.
Step by step
Head to Smoobu settings - booking portals - VRBO
To connect Prices and Minimum stays via Two-way synchronization
1. Select the Base URL portal you wish to connect (If you log in on VRBO.com choose VRBO etc)
2. Store your login data of the portal (email and password)
3. Assign the Smoobu units to the portal units clicking "Please select" on the right-hand side.
4. Press "Save" at the very bottom of the page
If successful, head to the Prices calendar to see if the connection is visible for HomeAway
