We’re delighted to announce the release of our latest vacation rental website template and our brand new vacation rental booking engine! Our design team focused on one major objective while designing these new features: Turning lookers into bookers.
Have a look at these demo websites to see the redesigned Tideway template in full action:
- Single Property Website (e.g. villa, cabin)
- Multiple Properties Website (e.g. vacation rental property manager or agency)
The New Tideway Template
The new Tideway design remains a photo centric template with the objective to beautifully showcase your property photos in high resolution and impress potential guests with a modern and smooth design.
Our beta users have already experienced an increase of their booking conversion with the new template and therefore we highly recommend that you utilize the new design when creating your vacation rental website with Lodgify.
Tideway is mobile responsive and fully optimized for desktop, mobile and tablet. So no matter what device guests use to visit your website, they will always have an excellent browsing experience.
The New Booking Engine
Tideway is the first vacation rental website template to use our new booking engine. The new booking process guides website visitors step-by-step through an easy booking funnel, promotes any additional services that you may have and summarizes costs and amenities in an overview.
Further, the mobile experience of the booking flow has improved drastically so that it has become even easier for guests to make an online booking quickly via their mobile phone.
Below is an example screenshot of the new step-by-step booking process viewed from a desktop:

How to obtain the new Tideway template
Lodgify users can easily switch their current website design to the new Tideway template without losing any current data, content or configurations (see “How to switch my template”). Before publishing the design changes you can preview the new template and check that everything is displayed correctly (see “How to preview a template”).
If you have not created a vacation rental website with Lodgify yet, get started now and make sure you benefit from beautiful and modern vacation rental website design that attracts more guests.
We are happy to inform you that we are currently redesigning all our other templates, i.e. Brooklyn, Livingstone and Capucine. These will also be using our new booking engine. We will keep you informed about the release.
Meanwhile, we’re excited to hear your thoughts on the new Tideway template and the new booking engine. Leave your comments below!
