The themes listed below are the best of the best. They’ve all been recently updated, so they work with the latest versions of WordPress and are all highly rated by their customers. What’s more, every theme here is fully responsive, so they look fantastic on mobile devices too.
Here are my top tips for the best WordPress themes for holiday rentals.
Bellevue is a stunning theme with beautiful templates and profit enhancing features. This theme offers you a complete solution from customizable templates and landing pages to a booking system with payment processing.
All of the themes here can be used for a single property, but most have designs and features best suited for a website with a few dozen rental properties. Bellevue will be very accommodating if you have a holiday property to rent or perhaps a property with a few rooms.
Bellevue uses a live drag-and-drop page builder built into the Customizer, which allows you to create completely custom page layouts. There are also lots of settings in the Customizer for things like the colours and typography. The eCommerce booking system is highly flexible and well designed for tenants and your back-end management.
The themes in this collection all have amazing features. It’s impressive how many options and tools they contain, but the only problem with most of them is that their designs are complex. Homey is the only theme with a truly minimalist design and it looks fantastic. It’s the perfect theme for anyone who wants to create a website like Airbnb.
Homey doesn’t just look like Airbnb; it works like it. With Homey, you can easily add advanced search and booking options to your website. Visitors can select the length of their stay, the location they want to stay in and the number of guests to start their search. There are all sorts of layouts to choose from, but you can replicate the same design as AirBnB with the map on the left and the listed properties on the right. Each property has a pin on the map that is highlighted when you hover over the property information.
The accommodation pages contain every detail a guest could want. There is a photo gallery, description and basic details, features, terms and rules, guest reviews and a booking request form.
Homey is a great theme for holiday homes and an excellent theme for anyone wanting a minimalist aesthetic for their website.
RealHomes is an extremely customizable WordPress theme for estate agents and all property owners. The RealHomes theme can be used to promote a single listing or multiple rooms and properties at once. In the screenshot above you can see the demo site prepared for holiday homes. This demo site can be imported into a new WordPress installation to automatically recreate it on your domain .
This real estate theme has been around for years and the developers have put a lot of work into improving it. The most important change was the Elementor integration. Elementor is the most intuitive and powerful page builder plugin ever developed, and it works flawlessly with RealHomes. Even better, the developers have added many of their own widgets that you can use with Elementor. This way you can create fully custom page templates with property and agent information.
RealHomes also includes built-in relationship management tools and a custom dashboard for creating and managing properties on the site. Overall, it’s a highly flexible theme and a great choice for anyone looking to rent out multiple holiday homes.
Kastell is the perfect theme for listing individual properties and flats. Here’s why…
First of all, the most important elements of your website are the pictures. Photos of your property will sell better than anything else, and the Kastell property theme includes photo galleries, video embeds (including 360° videos) and beautiful full-screen background images.
The property page can include all the relevant details you need to sell your property. It is kept separate from your other pages and posts, so you can still keep an active blog and publish all the other important pages you need. Kastell even includes two premium plugins, making it great value for money.
Luviana is a premium WordPress theme for holiday rentals and hotels that showcases accommodation of all sizes such as resorts, B&B, guesthouses, hostels, etc. This is a perfect choice as it has an integrated booking system for properties. With the booking feature, you can take payments from customers directly on your site and manage your online business professionally.
Luviana comes with a premium hotel booking plugin from MotoPress. This is a premium solution for any online rental business as it allows real-time bookings, online payments, multiple types of booking confirmation, up-selling of additional services and more. With this plugin, you can set different rates depending on the season, days of stay or number of guests. Owners are free to add any custom attribute to the search form to make UX more error-free.
In addition, the Luviana template allows you to display accommodation on external online travel agencies such as Airbnb, Tripadvisor, etc. without fear of overbooking. Thanks to the Hotel Booking Plugin, reservations from external
Villagio is an uncluttered WordPress theme for holiday rentals with an integrated ultimate WordPress booking system. It is a perfect theme to showcase multiple accommodations in different locations, accept online payments and manage your accommodation business on different levels
Using the free built-in MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin, you can create a real-time availability search form, accommodation listing with all images, descriptions, amenities, maximum occupancy, bed types, additional packages and more. You can enable any of the payment gateways to accept online payments – either an integrated one like PayPal, 2Checkout, Stripe or the built-in WooCommerce bookings. Optionally, you can disable bookings and create a listing of rentals.
The property management system for all individual rentals is quite flexible: seasonal rates and prices, different confirmation modes (manual or automatic), blocking of accommodations for reasons like maintenance, tax and fee information, discount vouchers and more.
If you rent your accommodation through online travel agencies, you can link them to your direct bookings on the website via an integrated channel manager supported by iCal .
Overall, Villagio is a solid, constantly improving WordPress theme with balanced layouts and a powerful all-in-one WordPress rental system.
Real Estate 7
Real Estate 7 seems like an odd name for a WordPress theme if you don’t know the history of Contempo. No, they haven’t skipped any iterations – their first real estate theme launched in 2008! These theme developers have been at it for almost a decade, and it shows.
Although it’s just my personal taste, I find Bellevue more attractive than Real Estate 7. However, this theme has an absurd number of features. No matter what kind of real estate website you need to create, this theme has you covered. You can use it to list a single property, an area with multiple rooms, or an entire collection of holiday rentals. You could even create a hotel website with this customizable theme
If you are the pioneer type, you can create a membership on your website and allow others with properties to list them with Real Estate 7 on your website. You can invoice them directly for the listings and accept payments via Stripe or PayPal. In fact, you can even accept wire transfers when customers pay for rentals through your website. You don’t need to install a separate real estate plugin for this .
If you expect to create multiple websites or have a broader vision for your website, try Real Estate 7. It is the most flexible and advanced real estate theme on the market.
8 The Happy Inn
The Happy Inn integrates with the same live page builder used in the Bellevue theme. It also includes a premium slider, custom colours and Google Maps embedding, among other features.
In terms of design, The Happy Inn is elegant and sophisticated. Unlike some themes here that drive properties, this theme sells visitors first to the hotel itself. Then it goes to the rooms available. This theme is an excellent choice for your holiday home site if you prefer to rent out individual rooms rather than the entire property to a tenant.
There are image galleries and many “content blocks” that you can use with the Page Builder. You will easily be able to show your visitors what is amazing about your property, whether it is a holiday home, beach house, ski resort or forest bed & breakfast.
9 WP Rentals
WP Rentals is designed to work well with both single and multiple accommodation websites. Be sure to check out both demos as they have highly differentiated designs.
The aesthetic of this theme is clean and modern. It’s attractive enough to build trust and credibility, but without a lot of frills and distractions. Visitors will find it easy to navigate and use.
The WP Rentals theme has a full booking system and many ways to increase profits. There are Google Maps embeds, filters to find rooms based on your desired location and number of guests, and calendars so visitors can easily select a date.
WP Rentals also offers some advanced features. You can set custom prices based on the day so you charge more on weekends, set cleaning and maintenance fees, and integrated payment processing with PayPal and Stripe
Estate is a clean and straightforward theme for advertising and selling real estate. It can be easily customized to manage properties for rent and/or sale.
You will notice the filtering options immediately on the home page. There are eight settings available to filter properties by attributes such as number of bedrooms, price and location. With the included Visual Composer plugin, you can create fully custom page layouts to showcase any number of properties.
Estate comes with many features, but does not have a booking system like some others here. If you prefer prospects to email or call you, Estate is great for displaying your contact details on property pages. There is a wide range of layouts available. If you like the overall style, check out some of the demos to see what this theme is capable of.
