Having a good looking site is important everywhere, but most of all in the rental business. Each part of the theme has been designed to look and work great.
Don’t rely on third-party services and scripts, enable bookings directly on your site. As admin you can approve or reject any booking claim submitted by visitors.
The beautiful Vacation Rental homepage is created with a number of custom widgets. Swapping elements or including new ones is as easy as drag n’ drop, literally.
Include the fields you want inside the front-end booking form. Apart from a few mandatory fields (house select), most of it is totally customizable.
Want to charge extra for stuff like parking or WiFi? Add service in the back-end, set the price and they’ll appear as options inside the booking form.
Use WPML to setup a multilingual website where visitors can change the default language per their requirements.
Enter different prices and “minimum stay” values for different dates of the year. Most owners charge extra during the peak season, you too can do that with this add-on.
In Vacation Rental each house you add will come with a matching availability calendar allowing visitors to clearly see which dates are taken and which are available.
The included coupon module will allow you to offer discounts on your regular booking rates. An optional coupon field appears by default inside the booking form.
No worries, we didn’t forget about the blog. Starting a blog with this advanced theme is as easy as creating a new category and adding some posts to it.
The primary way to make money with WordPress Vacation Rental theme is to charge for accommodations. This is achieved using a booking form which allows visitors to book a house and then pay for it. The theme can also be setup so it only charges deposits; visitors can then pay during check-in or check-out.
Second option is by selling products. Using the popular WooCommerce plugin (explained in detail below) you can turn Vacation Rental into a bona fide web store.
Third option is turning Vacation Rental into a Tevolution-powered directory. Create a post type of your choosing, setup a front-end submission form and then charge for submissions.
Love the Vacation Rental Theme. It was easy to setup, and the support was outstanding!

Tevolution is a plugin we use to power our advanced app themes. It can be used as a standalone product but works best coupled with themes such as Vacation Rental. Tevolution has the power to turn any theme into a full-blown directory.
It includes stuff such as the ability to create new post types. After that has been created you can continue with generating submission forms (so visitors can add content) and even monetizing the forms (so they pay before submitting).
On top of that there are features such as bulk import/export, custom register forms, transaction reporting and so on.
No manual price tables; generate a page which lists all your house prices.
Make certain dates unavailable for booking. For instance, during house repairs.
Each email sent by the system can be tweaked in the back-end. Some shortcodes are available too.
Set your tax amount and then choose for which houses it should apply to.
Don’t want to charge the whole amount online? Set a deposit and allow visitors to pay most of it during check-in.
Use the WordPress customizer to change the background. It’s all done in real-time.
The theme comes with an extensive customization back-end allowing you to easily change the theme’s appearance.
Allow visitors to share your content using Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ social networks.
Pressing just one button inside the theme back-end you can make your newly installed theme look like our demo site.
