Luxury Villa Website Introduces New Search Tools for State of the Art Vacation Search Experience

NEWPORT, RI, October 2008 -- Wimco Villas announces that its already award-winning website may well be setting new standards for how to make it easy for time-challenged folks to plan their villa vacation.

It has just lavished a year of development time on making sure that from start to finish the trip through is both pleasurable and efficient.

Stiles Bennet, Wimco Villa's director of marketing, says that the website's newly enhanced villa search tools now allow visitors to input their travel dates, number of bedrooms and desired price range to search for villas in their destination of choice that both meet their criteria and that are currently available. Guests can also use the advanced search tool to search by special features like swimming pools, WiFi access, air conditioning, satellite TV, child-friendly and much more. The other industry first is our "villa compare" tool, allowing you to select several different villas and compare their features side by side before making a reservation or calling an agent for details.

For those who take the few minutes to "Take a (flash) Tour" and see firsthand how the new enhancements work, the rewards are several-fold:

  • an appreciation for how Wimco Villas makes it so easy for clients to find the right match from an international portfolio of 1,400 private villas in sun-splashed places;
  • a chance to fill out a survey that then gets entered into a drawing for a week of free villa rental on trendy St. Barts;
  • and via this same survey a Wimco gift of $100 worth of complimentary villa provisioning when making a villa reservation for travel in 2008 and 2009.
