Vacation Rental Glossary

Orphan Gaps

Vacation rental metrics or key performance indicators are critical measurable aspects of your business that you can lean on to understand and manage your business better. From occupancy rates to referrals your vacation rental is getting, it can be helpful to track these metrics. “You can’t improve what you don’t measure!”

If you understand the business metrics, you and/or the vacation rentals’ manager will be able to analyze the return on your investment and return on revenue more accurately to improve your operations.

An orphan gap occurs when some nights are left unbookable due to minimum requirements set in length of stay. For example, if you require a 7 night minimum and bookings leave less than 7 nights open between the last checkout and next check-in.
