The newest and most user-friendly villa rentals website Villa-World.com
which was launched only last month has been an immediate success following its take-up by hundreds of villa owners from all around the world.Built with the aim of being the easiest to use and most comprehensive villa rentals site in the world, the website also gives holiday-makers great savings when sourcing a villa to rent as owners don’t pay commission to agents when renting their properties directly through the site.
Villa-World.com is the brainchild of villa owners Liz & Stephen Frieze, who became frustrated by the unimaginative and low functionality design of existing rental accommodation websites. Often demanding costly advertising rates, many of these sites also produce poor search engine results, says Liz, who lives in Florida where she manages the rentals of her own family’s luxury villas.
“We were constantly frustrated that managing rentals through the existing web advertising sites was really hard work, and decided there had to be a way to use technology to make the process more efficient and less painful,” she said.
“Working with some of the UK’s best web designers, we have developed a site that is really simple to use and is actually more of a rentals management tool than just a shop window for overseas property” she added.
As a product Villa-World.com is state of the art, and after a long period of research and development, has been made as user friendly as possible. The pages constructed for each individual villa advertised are extensive, and you can even print a detailed colour brochure. They may contain a range of photographs of the property, a full list of amenities and the terms and conditions by which the villa may be leased - giving the holidaymaker much more confidence in avoiding any unexpected shocks on arrival at their chosen villa.
The site is being heavily promoted to millions of US holiday-makers, a market where villa and apartment rentals have taken off in recent years, as well as to owners and renters across Europe, Australasia and Africa.
