Simple way would be a php widget and then use

if is_page('1') {
do something
} else if is_page('2'){

}

blah blah blah

or you could get more sophisticated and store stuff in arrays

A third option would be to use a widget, either php or one of many which are designed to output the contents of meta data.

Then on the posts concerned you could add some custom meta data for the calendar.

Ok i am not good with php, thought a widget might already exist but cant find one.  

I am trying your "if" code,

not sure how to specify the page?
 Url is: http://bookings.australianluxurystays.com.au/?page_id=269

would i use '269'

or 'page_id=269'

Have put the below code in a text widget,  I guess i need to start with something to let it know to read the php
if is_page('269') {
[booking nummonths=1 type=5 form_type='standard']
} else if is_page('270'){
hello page 270
}
else{

}

Open in new window

You need to be using a text widget that supports php

you should just use the numbers

Here are some good samples on conditional tags
http://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags

But lets go for a plugin solution
This will allow you to display custom fields

Now we need a way to add an interface for adding the data to each page
