Luxury Holiday Houses

Sophisticated travel ecommerce

Amazing Accom LuxuryHolidayHouses.com is built from the ground up for luxury holiday house owners and property managers.

Amazing Accom are experts in worldwide luxury holiday rentals, and specialise in safe, fast and easy online bookings for luxury holiday houses, villas and apartments. They are renown in their niche and provide a high level of customer service.

Luxury holiday houses demand a high level of excellence from the photography, presentation, attention to detail and ease to book. We have crafted from scratch an ecommerce experience with countless moving parts and exceptions to the rule to avoid bothering customers, that make this web application extremely powerful for the admin, customer and property owner or manager.

FourthMedia has been intricately involved in the ideation, branding, design, user-experience, prototyping, software engineering, database and system design, server setup and management, and continual agile development.

Relax back in the spa and let us explain.

Automated, powerful, fast

Using Symfony as the underpinning framework, each business process is mapped and automated to a high level. This makes life much easier for everyone involved, from booking to listing a new property, or reporting on sales and payment history.

The web application has numerous powerful features that work quickly for the user, yet query thousands of properties and database fields to provide the best ranking of properties to the guest. Extensive caching work, yet keeping the website real-time, has gone into the project and optimisation for speed is a paramount focus.

Everything on this website we have built from the search, property listing and detail page, exchange rate support from a third party, currency support, booking details and payment gateway, tracking and emails, live help chat and a fully responsive website frontend, coupled with powerful administration areas.

Building a web application such as this has taken over 10,000 hours across 5 years. We are proud to continue to grow and support this luxury web application.
