Reviews

Great Plugin backed by great support

I couldn’t find the url’s to embed the calendar on my site. Emailed support and had the links sent to me within minutes. Thanks Lucian.

**update** now they automatically email the embed code when you create a new calendar

Perfect free solution (and to update in the backend) for your availability calendar needs. Take a look at http://balsamlakecottages.com/property/kingsview-cottage-2-for-rent/ (under availability tab) to see the plugin in action
