I have 11 vacation rental cottages in Finland. I wish to have a modern, simplistic and responsive website with style of [url removed, login to view]
What I expect from you is:
1. A proposal how to improve the website. I want to see some of your previous projects and how your ideas would be implemented.
Some musts are availability calendar, contact/reservation forms and easy-to-use photo/video gallery.
2. A good look and feel, responsive template design or proposing some ready-made template
3. Existing information from existing websites transferred to new site.
(Existing information in [url removed, login to view], and [url removed, login to view], these two sites will be merged into one)
Existing information from 10 cottages, additional information from 1 new cottage will be sent separately.
4. Availability calendar and availability search
Final site will bi bilangual, Finnish and English, site must support these languages so if you are using some ready-made solutions, please take care that these languages are supported. Manual language selection should be available on all pages footer or header, text or flag.
Here is some examples that I would like you to look to see what kind of behaviour and look&feel I am looking for.
General guideline: I really like the approach from [url removed, login to view]
Landing page could be something like this: [url removed, login to view]
What I like: Big seamless background, clear message, clear navigation.
What should be different: I would like to have logo, a search for available cottage feature a bit like [url removed, login to view] : Arrive, Leave, Persons ==> Search. Also when scrolled down there should be main pictures of 11 properties and link to property presentation page.
Search results page
Search results could be presented a bit like this: [url removed, login to view] --> Search results
What I like: Picture and brief presentation of the property, price for the stay
What should be different: Not so much of small texts with plenty of annoying distractions
Property presentation pages (11 pcs)
Property presentation should be done a bit like this: General look & feel: [url removed, login to view] Included information and items: [url removed, login to view]
What I like: Tesselate: Clear, simple: VRBO: Information clearly, map, Book now button, price clearly
What should be different: I want a clear photo/video gallery, for example like this: [url removed, login to view]
The selected property information should be passed to booking form with propery info, dates of stay, price, amount of persons (if given in search), or then could be chosen freely. Booking page should be looking very attractive and forms should be formatted looking nice.
Also additional items like bed linen, boat rent, etc. should be possible to add on the price.
What I like: vrbo
What should be different: more straightforward, not too many steps, just hit book now and pass the information and additional services.
We will need template for general page, so this should be available with different elements that can be used later. Like [url removed, login to view]
I want fast loading and very lightweight site, so you may propose what to use, plain HTML or some publishing platform e.g. Joomla, Wordpress etc.
Everything should be made so that it can be easily modified
1. phase: Landing page and property presentation template for comments, technical evaluation --> modifications --> approval
2. phase: Search engine and pricing engine template for comments, technical evaluation --> modifications --> approval´
3. phase: All pages (in English) and functions ready made
Make proposal of milestone payments of these three phases
