new website design for Waiheke House Rentals

Purple Dog Design is proud to present the new website for Waiheke House Rentals.

The client exhibits upcoming rental properties on Waiheke Island and aims to match them to tenants who are looking for a new home on Waiheke.

Waiheke House Rentals needed a corporate and professional webdesign that was approachable and inviting. The clean colour scheme, no-nonsense layout and effective font styles and headings all combine to make the website clear, concise and consistent.

The site design is practical, mobile optimised and SEO friendly while maintaining a fluid webdesign that compliments the beautifully showcased Waiheke properties.  A typical Waiheke background shows off the New Zealand Pohutakawa in bloom, against another typical feature of island life – the beach and the pure blue sky.

The new Waiheke website was delivered, as always, with a user-friendly, open source Content Management System (CMS) that allows the client to modify and update content on the site. This was particularly important for Waiheke House Rentals as they need to be able to add and update upcoming rental properties on the site with ease-of-use.

In addition to the CMS, the client also needed the website to “talk” to their internal systems so that property details and availability would be updated across their sites.  Purple Dog wrote and integrated a data conversation application so that the client need only update their internal system once.  The new website continually listens for updates and upon receiving any changes to the listings, it updates them automatically. Magic!

As anyone who currently lives – or has ever lived – on Waiheke will know, rental properties on the island can be hard to come by, especially at the pre-Christmas time of year! Good rental properties are constantly in demand and there’s typically slim pickings! If you visit the property website during a period of when housing is in demand (usually July – December), you’ll notice there may be only a handful of listings available.

Nevertheless, the client now has an excellent communication tool to showcase available rentals – and locals can visit the site daily, knowing that it’s updated whenever a new property becomes available.

I found Sol very easy to work with when he recently created our fabulous new website. He had a clear understanding of my brief and was extremely patient with the unpredictable issues. He worked far harder and longer than we both expected all for a very competitive quoted price. I totally appreciate his work and the result he achieved for Waiheke Property Rentals
