The Challenge

When you are on the 3rd design for a long time client and have been pivotal in their success, you don’t embark on a custom redesign lightly. You pour blood, sweat and tears into the development of this new site because YOU KNOW you have to create something far better than the last two iterations. Technology advances at an accelerated pace so you have ensure your design keeps pace in both sophistication and relevance. To say that Port d’Hiver, a hotel in Melbourne Beach, is one of my all time favorite inns would be an understatement. I cannot overstate how impressed I have been over the last decade with their operations, their level of service and their all around exceptional hospitality. In fact, they were named the #3 Small Hotel in the US by TripAdvisor this year! Thus, we were tasked with outdoing ourselves once again and developing an engaging and revenue producing website suited to the #3 small hotel in America!

The Answer

Take a look for yourself! I think we accomplished our mission. To really stand out in this crowded field, you need a custom website design by White Stone Marketing. To cover our bases and bring to life all the special nuances of hospitality Port d’Hiver is known for, we needed a unique design and layout. With the expert oversight of the Rydsen Family, our team worked hand in glove to create the customized masterpiece you see before you. Of particular note is the masterful photography by the acclaimed Jumping Rocks duo who utilized professional models to add sophistication to the site. I love the nature tours section as well as the amazing photo galleries. If you are in love, Port d’Hiver is a not to be missed bucket list accommodation. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Design: Custom

This incredible new custom design just went live late August 2017. Port d’Hiver is closed for about a month (right after the launch) because they are building new rooms. Check back soon for updated statistics of their success. Early statistics are looking promising!

“Our previous White Stone designed website was beautiful. Technology changes compelled us to do a redesign, so this was more function than form. But White Stone delivered an even more beautiful product… thanks!!!”
