Project Description

Project Brief : Vacation rental website dedicated to Apartments in Paris France ([url removed, login to view]). My website is NOT a subscription site where owners pay to adverstise their properties, but a partnership between property owners sharing a same site (that makes a big difference on the programming).

Create:
Property Search Engine
Calendar
Property Page Template
GuestBook Form
Property Basket/Selected properties
Mail Server
2 Flash Scripts (showing apartment pictures)


1) Conditions:

- PHP programming & MySQL Database
- Use Open Source
- The codes have to be clean and easy to update.
- WebSite readable on most Internet Browsers.


2) Design/Graphics:

The following pages should look like these:

You will provide a Flash Script for both of these pages:

- Index Page: [url removed, login to view]

I will provide all logos and pictures. You will make the first property page and I should be able to prepare all the other ones.
All property page will offer "Easy Printing".


3) Search Engine/DataBase:

I need a "STEP by STEP Search Engine" to avoid a NO RESULT. Will ask first Booking dates+Number of People.
Result will show NUMBER of PROPERTIES available and offer additional limitations (District...price...amenities).

The Search Engine should be able to handle GO BACK request (very important).

A Basket/Property Selection should appear on each page (Up to 5 properties). At the end of the visit, the guest will send the same booking inquiry to all selected apartment owners.


4) Administrator Access:

- PassWord acccess.
Allows to create/modify NEW PROPERTIES.
- Follow Inquiries and Bookings.
- Manage Online Calendar.
- Access to all Owners accounts.
- Validate/Modify Testimonials-GuestBook.


5) Online Calendar - linked to Search Engine and also separately readable.

- An INDIVIDUAL property calendar / Example: [url removed, login to view]
- A GLOBAL one with all Properties /Example: [url removed, login to view]


6) Owners Access:

- PassWord acccess.
- Check received inquiries from Guests.
- Use "Easy tool" to reply to the booking inquiry (2 templates available YES or NO).
- Manage Calendar.
- Email the Webmaster


7) Mail Server:

- None of the emails or forms on the website will use Strong Emails. Only dynamic - non spam needed.
- All messages received and sent by the owners will copy Administrator.
