We currently list our properties on a number of vacation home web sites including http://www.vrbo.com (our listing numbers are 55322 and 68593 and 19036). This has been very effective for us. It includes a calender (it would be great to link our new site to each calender), 16 photos (we want to include a minimum of 16 photos), a slide show (we want to include this in the site), and a very details description of each unit.
The challenge is that guests that find our individual units may not know that we own other properties that may appeal to them as well. Thus the idea of having one site that shows all three of our properties
I want to convey high end for our Deer Valley properties and our New Smyrna Beach property yet also that each unit is very family friendly as well as perfect for a group of adults only. I want to show that our guests offer more amenities than other comparable units and list them as well. I also want to show that we have been doing this for close to 10 years. Also, I want to include our many guest comments on how they have been raving about our 3 properties.
This new website will then be linked on our listings at http://www.vrbo.com.
Creativity is key to helping us stand out from the rest of the vacation homes available in each area. I have many photos (at least 16 per property) that I can showcase. Plus short videos/slide shows with music as well.
