There is no denying the benefits of owning and operating an independent vacation rental website. We regularly spotlight property managers who have done a great job of promoting their properties through an independent website. This week we are excited to provide spotlight to our trusted client, Berlin Habitat who provide vacation rentals in Berlin.
Berlin Habitat offer carefully selected apartments at top locations across Belin Mitte. Whether you are looking for a holiday apartment, corporate rental, short term rental or executive suite, Habitat Berlin have a range of furnished apartments to cater for your needs. They pride themselves on safe, quiet and clean modern apartments equipped with free wifi, DVD players and flat screen TVs etc. Berlin Habitat showcase their modern vacation apartments set upon the beautifully historic Berlin Mitte through their website.
Berlin Habitat have opted for a simple yet bold website layout with everything you need neatly presented in front of you. Their straightforward style makes it easy to navigate yourself around and encourages potential guests to proceed with a booking quickly and smoothly.
What immediately caught your eyes as you land on their homepage is how Berlin Habitat present their professionally photographed apartments with a visually appealing scrolling tool. It is a great way for showcasing all of their properties in the hope that one will appeal to a potential booker, without bombarding the visitor with too much information. Another nice touch is Berlin Habitat's simple logo that uses the famous Brandenburg Gate monument, it reinforces the location of the apartments and adds personality to the simple logo design.
Berlin Habitat have made special effort to ensure that their guests have all the information they need in two languages, English and German. They provide useful information on how to get to and costs of travelling to Berlin Mitte and include a brief section on Berlin culture; making it easy for the guests and further reinforcing a smooth, easy booking.
Berlin Habitat have made sure it is easy for guests to make bookings throughout their website; users are greeted with the property search tool as soon as they land on the homepage and again on the apartment listing page.
With Berlin Habitat's embedded search tool, potential bookers can define property availability by check-in/check-out dates, number of guests and number of rooms. Users are then presented with search results that cater for their vacation rental needs. Before you even click on the property, each listing includes a brief description, total cost of stay and a list of the main amenities in the form of logos; an excellent way for users to filter out properties before they look any further.
Once selecting a property, you can add any additional services such as use of the garage for parking and instantly book through the website with payment options from internationally recognised banks e.g. Paypal, Visa, Mastercard etc.
The feature that stands out the most is the offering of booking discounts. On the homepage, Berlin Habitat promote discounts linking to more information. Providing long stay offers or last-minute booking deals and integrating the offer on the homepage is an excellent way to attract bookers and fill any gaps in your availability calendars.
