Im looking to create a website using wordpress and was wondering if theres such a plugin that allows users to subscribe to create an account and create listings for rent with a calandar that shows availability and whats already booked.

i could possibly manage it using multiple plugins but ones ive seen are all back end and ideally id like it front end so users dont see the wordpress back end.

also forgot, which i probably doubt it possible, but it would be good if visitors can place a booking and make payment which goes to the subscriber and not owner of the website.

SHORT ANSWER:
Here's your first problem: Wordpress.

LONG ANSWER:
Wordpress and most other "building-block" CMS' are very limited with what you can do without code, and Wordpress also has another problem with most good plugins being paid. I suggest, for your purpose, you either look into not using Wordpress, make the plugin yourself, or hire someone to do it.

Wordpress might be clunky but it can get the job done these days and be managed once it is by mere mortals (probably installed by someone half versed in computers).
Custom work then will always need custom work.

There are various things that will function as a booking calendar (I did one for a restaurant, a spa and a hotel). Something aimed at a timeshare might be a better plan.
As far as sign up and list things. You might be able to use one of the above type things, manually confirm new users.
