Kookooning is a service gathering "thematic" accommodations online.
Hosts can create an account as well as a listing for their accommodation on our service. Inside this listing, they can fill in up to 5 thematics. These thematics help categorize the accommodation in our search engine when travelers are looking for a sport-oriented stay, a monument-oriented stay, etc).
Since the beginning of May, hosts can add activities as well as accommodations (these activities can range from table d'hôtes to introduction flights, and more). These activities will be bookable, like the accommodations.
Once you are registered and your listing is published on our site, you can receive information and booking requests from our travelers, who looked for an accommodation using either the locality, the dates, and/or the "desire" feature of our search engine.
These information and booking requests are sent both to your KooKooning inbox and your personal e-mail (the one you provided for the creation of your account). Furthermore, an SMS will be sent to you each time you receive them, in case you cannot access your mailbox.

KooKooning allows travelers to sort accommodations depending on their "mood" (for example, the traveler feels like discovering canyoning: they can choose to only browse the accommodations having the "sport" thematic), and this independently from the location or the dates of the stay.
If you do not have any thematics associated with your accommodation, it will not be visible in our thematic search engine, and you might miss a part of your public.
The registration as well as the listing creation are totally free.
