Hale Nalo Beach Rentals

HalaNalo.com is a local beach vacation rental. The owner needed to move the existing site from the old host, and thus decided was a good time for a redsign for more modern functionality.

Basic requirements include:

  • Hosting with email
  • Site built in WordPress with ease in updating
  • Total responsiveness from desktop to mobile devices in the same design
  • Platform independent design and interactive features
  • Cool, comforting design
  • Custom fonts (Google Font Implementation)
  • Local time & weather conditions, room availability and a feedback form are to be present at all times on all pages (with exception to actual reservation pages)
  • Full integration of Google Analytics into WordPress install
  • Integration with RezOvation site software

The original site was a boxed-in, fixed design that had served the owner well. The owner wanted to keep the minimalistic, “zen” feel of the old design, but give it more modern functionality.
