ResortQuest Charleston Unveils New Website with Easier Navigation, Advanced Search and Improved Booking Capabilities

The vacation rentals company has updated its online presence, revealing a new look and numerous enhancements for both guests and property owners on Seabrook Island, Kiawah Island, Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island and Wild Dunes, S.C.

ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, one of the leading vacation rental property management companies in North America, recently unveiled a new look and a wealth of functional enhancements for www.ResortQuestCharleston.com, the official website for the company’s Charleston-area operations.

Guests can now search all of ResortQuest Charleston’s properties from a single site, filtering by a number of criteria including property type, location, number of bedrooms, and available amenities. Packages and special offers can be immediately booked online by entering a specified Promo Code. The site even suggests similar properties nearby.

“With captivating imagery and a clean, contemporary design, guests will find the site immediately engaging. But the improvements transcend mere cosmetics,” said Ian Harris, Director of Sales and Marketing, ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, Charleston. “Availability is displayed in real time for every property. Rental rates automatically factor in current specials, giving guests the best possible price. We even implemented OwnerNet® to reinforce our commitment to the property owners.”

ResortQuest concurrently launched OwnerNet®, a custom online interface that will allow the company to better serve its property owners. The secure OwnerNet® website allows owners to log in anytime and view a calendar of booked reservations for their unit, book their own property online for personal use, run statistics reports, and much more.

ResortQuest Charleston is showcasing a Spring Getaway lodging special in conjunction with the launch of their new website. Visitors can receive a fourth night free when they book a three-night stay this spring in select vacation rentals on Seabrook Island, Kiawah Island, or Isle of Palms. This special offer is available for stays in March, April and May 2012, but reservations must be booked by Sunday, January 15, 2012.

ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals professionally manages an array of villas, cottages and houses on the barrier islands of Seabrook, Kiawah and Isle of Palms, which skirt the southern coast of South Carolina. Kiawah is a private gated community featuring celebrity-designed golf courses and more than 30 miles of paved bike trails. The private island of Seabrook is one of the only places on the East Coast where you can horseback ride on the beach. More world-class golf courses are found on Isle of Palms, as is a full-service marina and Front Beach at the Isle of Palms with its assortment of waterfront restaurants, boutiques and bars.

“The new ResortQuest Charleston site is our first step in a company-wide process to build a robust website experience that performs on a national and local level for both guests and homeowners,” said Amber Mayer, Sr. Director of Web Design & Ecommerce, ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals. “The intuitive and streamlined user interface allows guests to search and book online in as few as four clicks.”
