Listing a vacation home or lodging house for rent just got easier, thanks to an innovative new website. The site, Villa-World announced its launch to the general public according to Stephen Frieze, President and CEO of Villa-World.
“We spent several years and quite a lot of money researching the existing vacation home rental market” says Frieze. “What we found was that there was a lot of room for improvement, and that’s where Villa-World comes in.”
According to Frieze, Villa-World takes the concept of online vacation rental bookings to a much more sophisticated and user-friendly level, both for the consumer and the property owner. “Many of these other sites are a mess—difficult to navigate and even harder to book from,” says Frieze. “That can be a real turnoff for someone who wants to rent a home, and if they sign off without booking, that hurts the homeowners as well.”
Frieze says that he and his team of seasoned Web designers and developers went through a troubleshooting process on rival sites, identifying weak areas and developing solutions to improve them. “It was our goal to create a streamlined, easy-to-navigate site that would generate maximum bookings,” says Frieze. “Visitors to the site can search for properties by a wide number of means—location, number of bedrooms, types of amenities and even available dates, to name a few—and then review all the properties that meet those criteria. When they find the perfect property, all it takes is a few keystrokes and clicks and they’re done.”
“From a homeowners point of view we wanted to give them the ability to custom-tailor a Web package that suits their needs and budget” says Frieze “Property owners who wish to list their properties on the site can now make use of the Villa-World universal booking management/reservation system and take advantage of being able to display individual rates and dates for a property together with automated calendars, letters, email alerts, tax rates, deposits, payment methods and a host of other features all designed to take the hard work out of property management”.
