OwnerRez offers an open API that allows any other system to integrate with us.  If you know anyone at Hipcamp or Glamping, please suggest this to them, and ask them to write in to our Helpdesk for assistance and more information.

A growing number of users have STRs that fall into the 'glamping category'. Main stream glamp OTAs have popped up; the two biggest players being Hipcamp and Glamping Hub. I have assisted a number of OwnerRez users with their setup that have this exact need but are limited to iCal currently. There are already other PMS systems with API connection to Glamping Hub while Hipcamp seems to be iCal only at the moment.

So I would like to appeal to the forward looking nature of our developers and make OwnerRez continue to be the most robust PMS out there!

I actually had a Zoom meeting with the new CEO of Glamping Hub, CJ Wolf, at the end of July and I did bring the need for an API to PMS software to his attention. I'll reach out to him again.

Just received a reply from CJ Wolf, CEO of Glamping Hub...

"We are in the process of integrating with Lodgify and Guesty then we are going to work on Cloudbeds followed by OwnerRez. I hope to have OwnerRez done by the end of the year."

Thank you for the update! I just wrote to Hipcamp for API integration with OR. Hopefully more hosts will request that of them as well.

I will also write in! I’ll look for where to send in comments. You should do a social media post in the group to get more people to write in.

Glamping Hub Integration
Update as of 12/20/2023


I messaged the CEO to ask for an update and here was his reply:

"Hello Patricia- thanks for checking in and we are getting very close to releasing OwnerRez. It is code complete and will be entering our QA stage next week so we hope to launch a few pilot hosts (of which you can be one of them) by the 2nd week of Jan. You are on our list, and we will notify you when we are ready to kick off the pilot program.

Have a great holiday!

CJ

I'm still waiting for a reply from the CEO of Glamping Hub as to when it will be open for beta testing before it gets officially released.

Hi Karen,

Glamping Hub is currently in the final stages of beta testing and the public release should be soon!

Quick question on Glamping Hub: I just added my cabins to Glamping Hub.  I assume that I need to set up my templates and triggers for "channel" communication as opposed to "email" communication, similar to Airbnb.  Is that correct?  Thanks!

No, that's a misunderstanding - Glamping Hub does not have an internal channel messaging system like Airbnb and Vrbo do.  OwnerRez communicates with Glamping guests in the same way as it does with direct-book guests - email and (perhaps) SMS texting.
