Many Kalkan property owners are being forced to accept online booking systems and credit card payment services and their associated high costs. An alternative to this is required where owners can communicate easily directly with their visitors, the personal touch.
A website is required where owners can list for an annual fee. Enquiries go to them direct and no money passes through the website. The site should be an information source for holidaymakers with some advertising opportunity for car rental companies, tour companies and the such like. Guests should be able to post property reviews. It should be attractive with lots of fabulous imagery and sell the Kalkan holiday dream.
The large showcase image on the home page immediately sets the scene. Upon loading the page is very simple with the logo, menu and the Kalkan Holidays search. The visitor need not scroll further but should they decide to scroll down more beautiful photos and featured properties will tell them what it is all about. I created the information boxes with a gradient background rather than a flat colour for more depth. The font is Proxima, which is contemporary and easy to read.
Delving further you come across the property listings, which give at-a-glance information about the properties. Custom designed icons and graphics are used throughout the site in the brand colours to build brand recognition and trust. Featured property carousels, filter search and useful maps appear on all pages.
Each property has a full-page including stunning thumbnail galleries, property overview and lots of sliding sections giving different information about the property including facilities, availability calendars, map and pricing. The sliders are used so that the visitor is not bombarded with huge amounts of text or information in one go. Property enquiry forms go direct to the property owner to enable them to manage their own bookings. visitors can leave reviews online and share on social media.
Property owners upload properties to the site via a user-friendly front end form. They can manage listings, availability calendars and galleries ongoing.
