High Country Properties

This website is built on our own framework and uses WordPress for content management. Originally built in 2005, we completed a rebuild in 2013 to optimize it for speed, upgrade it to MVC with file caching and pretty URLs, and to remove Flash.

High Country manages several hundred vacation rental properties in southeastern British Columbia. Property data is managed through a custom content-management system built by us. Page content is managed through WordPress. Availability information is pulled from the client’s in-office reservation system.
