Prevent guests on WiFi from printing to office printer

Hi - I have a customer who owns rental cottages which are attached to his farmhouse. He has a wireless network within the vicinity which he uses as well as the guests. His office printer is connected to the same wireless network.  A guest sent a print job to it the other day by mistake. Obviously this can't be allowed. How can I configure it so that the guests can't access the printer?
The wireless radios are EnGenius ENS202EXT units. They have multiple SSID and station separation capability but I'm not sure that would allow me to block access to the printer.

Printers are not particularly secured and if it is on the cottage network wired or wireless and the guest has the same printer, there is not a lot you can do.

If it is important, you may need to put the printer on a different network that only the cottage has access to.

you could use another SSID and assign a different IP block that is not routed between the cottage and farm house.  A lot of if's like router make/model comes to mind.  But you are basically wanting a separate guest network, may look at replacing the AP with one that supports this feature too, normally you see it in home equipment.
