Villa Rental Photography – Photo Of The Week – No 13

Here’s a great idea this week. Raising the bar to it’s limit. Oh boy, if I had a luxury villa, condo, penthouse or whatever…

Two birds with one stone

As you know by now I’m a huge advocate of using Pinterest to promote your vacation rental and showcase your photographs.
I’ve written 4 articles about how to go about it (you can read them here, vacation-rental-owners-raise-interest-with-pinterest/, vacation-rental-marketing-nailing-more-bookings-with-pinterest-part-two/, vacation-rental-marketing-using-pinterest-and-video/ and vacation-rental-marketing-and-pinterest-update/.

Anyway the reason that I’m mentioning this is that Villa Punto de Vista dropped me a line in connection with these articles to show me how they are using Pinterest.
Have a look at what they have done so far – http://pinterest.com/costaricavilla/

I had a good look around and not only did I see photos of the hotel, it’s stunning bedrooms and surroundings. I also learned about the available activities, the national park and the wildlife AND I came across this photo which really fired up my imagination.

Here’s the photo

Now I will be the first to admit that there are better photos on the boards that costaricavilla have put together but I love this idea.

An interactive welcome note that adds a huge degree of class, style and trust.

Then I started thinking about further uses. Such as showcasing the Pinterest photos on the tablet. A folder of local maps. The menus of, and directions to, local restaurants. The instructions to the television and cable box, the washing machine, etc. Emergency phone numbers. An Eguestbook. An alarm clock app. Skype (they can call friends and relatives and tell them all about your fantastic property). Facebook (ditto). Links to the local tourist office and info on the best attractions. Bla Bla Bla.
