$8+ / listing + 1% of revenue
Your content sells. Your images sell. Your reviews sell. And all of this is dependent on your actual Ad, or Listing. You need an easy way to create listings on the fly for all platforms. Tokeet doesn’t cover this need at all.
FantasticStay offers you to push your listings to Airbnb, Booking.com, HomeAway/VRBO family and Expedia instantly, plus fully edit and keep your listings and images up to date.
There are some cases when Airbnb hosts are actually co-hosts. Tokeet supports co-hosting but you will need to contact support for that for every single case.
With FantasticStay there’s actually no difference if you are a co-host, or the actual host. It works immediately out of the box.
The HomeAway / VRBO family gives your listings access to 70,000,000 travellers worldwide on a monthly basis. If your property is not there you are missing out on a huge revenue opportunity. Tokeet has no connection with them, not even for calendar availability, pricing and minimum night stay requirements. FantasticStay has one of the best connections in the world with the entire HomeAway Family and it is an official HomeAway trusted partner.
Tokeet has a robust MultiCalendar at first sight. It has infinite listing numbers, bulk edit of rates for multiple listings and a variety of possible views on your availability and overall calendars. FantasticStay only has one MultiCalendar view with no bulk edits. On the positive side we have the “Find My Availability” feature, which is useful for over the phone bookings. Tokeet is the clear winner here. But if this is a deal-breaker for you get in touch with us.
Tokeet offers Invoice generation, Expense tracking and some reporting functionalities. FantasticStay, currently, does not have any Invoice & Expense functionality. That being said we understand the need to account for your business so we have tremendous reporting already in place that will show you all the important metrics and KPIs for your Revenue, for your rates, and for your general income/revenue management. FantasticStay also offers Zapier integration, so you can easily connect Xero, Quickbooks or any other popular 3rd party accounting service and track your revenue live, issue invoices and regulate your expenses. Isn’t that awesome?
Some booking channels (OTAs) like Booking.com, VRBO/HomeAway and Expedia require you, as a host and a property manager, to process payments on your side. This could be very confusing, time-consuming and also tricky to be tracked down. Tokeet offers integrations with Stripe and PayPal for payment processing. However, they are manual, no automation at all. FantasticStay has a robust integration with Stripe with full payment capabilities: you can initiate a manual charge on any reservation (as long as you have the credit card details of the guest), create automatic charging rules for peace of mind and speed, pre-authorize (hold funds on a guest's card - either for a deposit or any additional services).
Both Tokeet & FantasticStay offer the ability to send a manual payment request link directly to the guest. This is used for additional services rendered like late check-out, early check-in, concierge services and others. On top of that FantasticStay tracks if the guest successfully paid and sends automated messages, emails and text messages to your Guests immediately after their payment, or follows-up with a reminder if they forgot to do so. Complete peace of mind and communication automation.
Tokeet helps you manage the communication flow with your guests and automatically sends them guiding messages…however, you definitely pay for this feature! FantasticStay also has a powerful automation system, which allows you to use one of our templates or create an unlimited number of your own, for FREE. You can now take care of your guests at every step of their journey and stop worrying about how much this will cost you. And yes, it supports all major channels and mediums, including SMS text messaging and WhatsApp (available as a paid add-on).
After every reservation, Airbnb prompts you as a host to leave a review for you Guest. Tokeet has virtually zero for this. FantasticStay has a robust automation system where you can use one of our templates or create an unlimited number of your own. After the guests check-out, you allow yourself some time to inspect the unit. If there’s no issue whatsoever - you don’t do anything and FantasticStay will leave a 5-star positive review for your guest, randomly, from your or our own templates. Easy, huh? But what happens when someone needs a bad review? We’ve got you covered. You simply open the reservation in FS and you will be able to adjust the review from there. When the time comes - FS will take care of everything else.
Want to hide your listing from nosy neighbors? FantasticStay has the option to Snooze your listings on Airbnb for specified hours and days of the week. Want it to be gone during the weekend? Or to be visible only after work hours? We’ve got you covered again! Tokeet? Nothing.
FantasticStay gives full automation for your payments. You want to capture or hold a deposit? No issue. You want to charge your guests certain days before check-in, or after check-out? No worries.
Reviews are critical for your business. That’s how users perceive your service. That’s how users perceive your brand. Better reviews mean more bookings and more revenue. The opposite means low revenue and bad occupancy rate.
FantasticStay has a reviews dashboard which compiles the incoming guest reviews for your listings across all connected Airbnb accounts. Moreover, we are working hard behind the scenes to add Booking.com and VRBO/HomeAway family reviews, which is expected to become available soon.
They absolutely dominate over FantasticStay on this aspect. They offer native iOS / Android apps that look very good and have full functionality. We can’t speak about quality - we never used the Tokeet family of products ourselves, but we are impressed. Congrats, Tokeet! On a positive note: - FantasticStay’s platform (FsApp) is fully responsive and mobile-friendly, via your mobile browser on any device. We don’t have native push notification capabilities, but we have an integration with a 3rd party service called PushBullet which resolves that. - FantasticStay just hired the biggest mobile development team in our industry. Let’s check our progress in a few months, shall we?
Tokeet is the clear winner here again.
Our honest opinion? We both suck. Here’s a link to an Tokeet website Here’s a link to an example website generated by FantasticStay . But we won’t let this flaw just slip away! We assure you that we’ll re-iterate on this feature and we’ll introduce the ultimate Website builder to market in 2020.
On top of Tokeet’s paid PMS you’ll have to pay more for the owner portal Add on.
Fortunately, FantasticStay offers this feature absolutely for FREE. Both are good and will do what they are intended to do. Congrats, Tokeet.
Makomi, one of our best New York City-based clients (280+ listings) is a good example of our platform’s capabilities. Own domain, own logo, own colors. Feel free to check it out on https://app.makomi.com. Tokeet, on the other hand, needs to work on their connections.
No one can be the best in everything. No one can build everything. It’s unrealistic to expect this from anybody. That’s why we have an abundant and lively Marketplace of 3rd party applications, services and offerings.
Tokeet has none.
Both FantasticStay and Tokeet are developer-friendly. We have Public API and Tokeet has the same. In all fairness, we didn’t bother to investigate what’s available on theirs. Our API has everything you will ever see in our User Interface. Nevertheless, this feature requires any of our Premium plans which are available here.

Having a partner like FantasticStay that has created a solution that matches our business needs has transformed the way we work. Before we would have to work around tools to do what we need, and now we are able to focus on executing our business. This has created the ability for us to be more efficient and get the information we need to execute our vision.

Been using the system for almost a year, Dimitar has been very helpful and proactive to help me understand the system better. Very happy with the service *****.
Great product, features & support for a fraction of the price of competitors. Absolutely love the integration with Asana - this is a real bonus for us. This is our third channel manager and hopefully our last! Really happy with these guys and would definitely recommend to anyone.
AM Adjeifor FantasticStay
I’ve used a few channel managers so far and this is the best I’ve found. I have found the guys to be responsive at adding new features and listening to what features I require.
There are still some things that need ironing out and developing, but on the whole this is the best solution I have found.
They are just introducing me to a flat rate payment option which should create savings for us which is a good thing :)
Ivan and the team are very friendly and amenable and aim to please and sort things out as quickly as they can. They also put up with my constant questions and Improvement suggestions.
The recent link with Zapier (although currently in Beta version) as it means we can link with other apps making life more simple (Google spreadsheets, Podio, etc). Especially pleased we can now link to Xero our accounting software via Zapier as well to create invoices and other payment options. This really will be a game changer.
Thanks fs, keep up the good work 😊

I currently manage 26 listings and am adding listings quickly. I needed a PMS that had a robust set of features that our company could scale with. After spending many hours researching different options, I believe I’ve found that with FantasticStay. Also, I refuse to give a percentage of my revenue to any software company so FantasticStay’s flat monthly rate works great for us. It is much more affordable than my previous software (Hostaway) and offers many more features. I’ve been using the software for the last nine months and am excited to continue as our company grows. Also I noticed on a previous review that someone said
“But if you're in the US and you charge a base rate for the room and add the local taxes on top, then forget this software, it doesn't support that kind of billing.... The tax fields are missing! And they cannot be configured by listing”. If this was accurate at the time of the review, it no longer is. I live in the US and add taxes on top of the nightly rate.
