Beach Retreats.


A Comprehensive Website Rebuild for Beach Retreats

Founded by the Watergate Bay Family, Beach Retreats is quickly becoming the leading name in Cornish holiday rentals, with a curated collection of exclusive properties, each carefully chosen for its unique charm, breathtaking views, and luxurious amenities.

Their passion for the laid back Cornish lifestyle is reflected in their local knowledge and dedication to first class service, providing unforgettable holidays against the backdrop of Cornwalls’ stunningly rugged coastlines and sandy white beaches.

Beach Retreats approached us, looking to make the move from Umbraco to a powerful WordPress site with super-fast SuperControl API integration, supporting their expanding number of properties and providing a better experience for their users.

A powerful site rebuild from Umbraco to WordPress and SuperControl API

To ensure the continued success of Beach Retreats amid its rapidly expanding portfolio, enhancing page speeds and optimising site user-friendliness became paramount.

With this goal in mind, we undertook a comprehensive website reconstruction from Umbraco, to WordPress implementing SuperControl caching to facilitate a faster browsing experience. Additionally, we incorporated their thoughtfully curated content.

While retaining Beach Retreats’ distinctive branding and aesthetic, we focused on enhancing usability and accessibility for an improved overall experience.


Insightful development pages that showcase select properties

Beach Retreats’ expanding portfolio of property developments takes centre stage with dedicated individual pages. Each page is meticulously crafted with compelling copy, enticing imagery, and captivating videos, offering a comprehensive view of each development.

Furthermore, to enhance user experience, every page incorporates a dedicated property section. This section includes direct links to the respective properties, eliminating the need for users to undertake unnecessary searches.


Comprehensive blog posts that inform and engage

Ensuring user engagement is a top priority for Beach Retreats. A strategy for achieving this goal involved delivering valuable local insights through informative content and extensive blog articles.

Prioritising user experience, we seamlessly migrated their captivating blog posts, strategically incorporating links to related properties on each page. This approach not only enhances bookings but also contributes to a more personalised and engaging user experience.


A user-friendly booking experience that makes browsing a breeze

With the integration of SuperControl calendars and search, finding the perfect property is simple.

These calendars feature real-time availability and pricing information, giving users peace of mind that they’re receiving the latest information. We also integrated map search, providing greater insight into property locations and local attractions.

For longer, more content heavy pages, the option to display or hide pages has been included, making browsing a quicker, smoother experience.
