Introduction

In the competitive world of vacation rentals, having a modern, user-friendly, and secure website is paramount. Lake Ouachita Vacation Realty (LOVR), renowned for its luxurious condo rentals at Mountain Harbor, Arkansas, faced a significant challenge when its existing WordPress website hosted on GoDaddy was compromised by malware. The cost of fixing the issues was prohibitive, prompting the need for a fresh start. This case study explores the journey of LOVR’s digital transformation, culminating in a new website that not only meets but exceeds the expectations of the client and their guests.
