Booking email notifications then the booking process will flow in such a way:
  1. User books a house for rent in the House Details Page
  2. Manager receives a notification mail as well and approve the request in the Booking Manager.
  3. Once the Booking is approved, the user receives an email confirmation stating that the request has been approved and the house is ready to rent. If the Booking is declined, the user will receive an email saying that the Booking was not accepted.

The user's emails are clickable in the Booking Manager, so admin can easily send reminders to the users from there.
