Hide Park was a luxury accommodation destination located right on Mountain View Rd in Maleny. Recently, the property reverted to being a private residence. This portfolio is retained only to demonstrate some interesting aspects of the website/
It is conveniently close to everything that the township of Maleny and the Sunshine Coast hinterland has to offer. Along with the many on-site features of the property, it is the ideal luxury get-away retreat.
The property offers two self-contained suites and the purpose of the website was to make these suites available for on-line booking.
The site uses the WooCommerce platform along with a selection of extensions to enable accommodation booking and follow-up emails.

Image Map Navigation
Bec Eddleston was commissioned to create the image used in the opening screen of the website as well as a “dollhouse view” of the home.
The dollhouse view became the backdrop of an image map that enables visitors to take a tour of the various rooms. Hovering over the image map highlights the featured areas and enables an active link.
WooCommerce is a customizable, open-source eCommerce platform built on WordPress. It is the most popular eCommerce platform for WordPress and was used on this project to handle bookings.
Through the use of a couple of WooCommerce extensions, visitors are able to check availability of the rooms against a calendar; make bookings and payment; receive a sequence of informative emails about their booking; and finally receive a personalised Thank You email from the hosts with a request for a Google Review.
