Vacation Rental Website Development

Luxury Villa Collection holiday rental website

Why create my own website?

You want to reach out to guests before they’ve started looking for accommodation. But you can only do that by delivering a total holiday experience.

Creating your own website to promote your holiday home can be the best investment you make for the long term success of your holiday rental business. It will put you firmly in control of your marketing, create a trustworthy reputation for your rental, and makes you far more effective at converting enquiries to bookings.

  • The Social Hub for your business
  • Easily share what’s great about your holidays
  • Attract more of your ideal guests
  • Becomes the ‘control room’ for your marketing
  • Turn prospects into paying guests!

Case Study

We have a vacation rental business in British Columbia, Canada and contacted Louise to help us.

She developed a new Cadder House website for us and wrote new content for our site. She also helped us with marketing strategies for our VRs.
She did an excellent job in all of the above and we cannot thank her enough for all her help. She was very professional and prompt in everything that she did and answered all our questions.
I would highly recommend Louise and truly believe that her expert knowledge and services are essential for any vacation rental owner wishing to take their business to a new level.

A Holistic Approach – Your Website is Key

A Holistic Marketing approach takes your whole business (you, your product, your systems and marketing) and tailors a solution to align to your ideal guests and customer touch points. The objective is to make the customer experience across all your holiday rental marketing – website, advertising, social media – as seamless and consistent across all channels. At Rental Tonic we encourage and teach holiday property owners how to think in terms of a Holistic Marketing and Web approach.

At the centre is a great website in which you can build the holiday experience, this is supported by a presence on social media and fuelled by the right selection of holiday rental portals and agents.  This structure will let you quickly build a reputation as the perfect holiday within your ideal niche holiday market.

One of the biggest advantages of having your own website is to build up a mailing list of guests, enquiries and future prospects, then keep in touch and nurture that list. Email is still one of the most effective forms of marketing for client acquisition, conversion and retention.

Once you have a mailing list linked to your website, the real power of social media comes in to play.  You can deliver visitors to your website from Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or your rental listings, where they can opt-in to join your list and voila! You open up an ongoing communication channel with future guests. In fact the more you can find out about your clients – through guest profiling – the more personalised information you can deliver to them via email marketing.
