Website Design for a holiday apartment in Cornwall.
Sea Spray is a holiday apartment in St Ives, Cornwall. The two bedroom apartment is based in the popular area of Porthmeor and is currently listed on HomeAway and Airbnb.
Richard Leedham, the owner of Sea Spray, wanted to create a website for the apartment which would eventually allow users to book without going through one of the third party sites above. As St Ives is an extremely popular holiday destination, Richard stressed that SEO and Google rankings were top priority on this project.
The website was to be image based with the majority of information available immediately on the home page. There were some other websites Richard liked and he requested that we take inspiration from these. He wanted a darker colour scheme which allowed the images to display more prominently.
Although a booking system was not required immediately, an availability calendar was requested.
Sea Spray’s new website incorporates a full width image slider, homepage gallery and dark colour scheme to reflect the luxury feel of the apartment. As requested, the apartment rules and location map are included on the home page.
The website is fully SEO optimised and links to the third party booking sites. The availability calendar is also displayed on the home page and this is updated by Richard using the website’s content management system.
Richard can also edit other aspects of the website including the image gallery and review system.
Of his new website, Richard was very pleased and said “I’ll definitely pass your name on to anybody looking for a website”.
