Our interest is the creation of a sleek web 2.0 website similar in look to the website www.airbnb.com.
We are looking at creating a new format for an existing travel site business similar to [url removed, login to view] but for villa properties. This is known as "Opaque Sales" What we are looking to do is to offer clients flash sale deals on villas that are not being rented. The property owners will be reducing their nightly rates by up to 50% properties in order to fulfill occupancy.
The most important thing here is that the client would not know the property name until they commit to the booking. This way the property owner does not publicly devalue the property in the eyes of its other clientele.
What we would need would be a back end interface based on an interactive calendar where partner property owners can enter in the following;
* Property details including number of bedrooms, pool, beachfront etc. What the full price per night is and what they are willing to rent out at for the period that they have availability (Eg $250 a night instead of $500) We would be able to show clients these details as well as photos that are not tagged with the villa name.
* Dates that the property is available for.
A client would then be able to visit our site and request information on, for example any properties available in July with 4 bedrooms and a pool. They should be able to fine tune their search by location and max/min dollar amount etc. We could then show them details of properties within their range.
Additional features would include;
-Payment engine for listing the properties only.
I have a step by step process flow for the property management back end which i can send to you to better understand what would be needed.
And many of the other features found on the airbnb website. Please take a close look at this site for features and specs.
A similar site offering hotel flash sale deals is [url removed, login to view] however the client is able to see the names of the properties on this site.
Let me know if you think that this is something that you would be able to assist with and also examples that you may have already worked on. The most important factors here are sleek and functional interface for both the property managers/owners and the clients and the ability to gather the clients information and send them regular valuable information.
Ultimately, the properties have to look great on our site and the user experience for both the property/villa owner and the client should be great.
