How PrimeLuggage started their web page design journey

Summary

Need a website designed and preferably coded for our vacation rental company. Can win 2 contests as I have two going for the same company..(see contest http://99designs.com/contests/15886)

Company name

Sunfire Resorts

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Sunfire Resorts is a vacation rental company located in the NW Florida coast.  We represent higher-end vacation homes and condos.  I'm looking for something unique, classy and effective to both the user and search engines.

Our logo was just created, and two versions can be found here - I'd leave it up to you on which you'd like to go with..

Blue Version:

Gold Version

Some sites that I like in our industry:

http://www.southernresorts.com/ - like the use of large pictures (rotating)

http://oceanreefresorts.com/ - like the placement of the "quick search" and again rotating pictures.  Like the background graphic as well, and also the color scheme..

http://www.allstarvacationhomes.com/ - site has a lot of function, but IMO has too much going on..

http://luxuryvillacollections.com/ like the use of color, again the larger pictures

http://destinvacation.com/

Main Content Area needs to contain the following:

Plus if you could include a few logos

Visit Florida (http://www.visittreasurecoastfl.com…go_307.jpg)

http://www.allstarvacationhomes.com…iliate.jpg

Also, a big plus would be if you could design a 2nd page template that can be used on the site for other pages (header, footer, etc would remain the same):

Wants

- If you have feedback/questions let me know I'll be very responsive..the more questions/feedback you can bring, the more I can clarify!!
- source files (psd) plus providing a coded XHTML/CSS page that is SEO friendly would be a BIG plus.
- cohesive with our logo
- blues, golds colors that emote luxury, professional.
- Not cluttered, need consumers to easily be able to find what they are looking for.
- "floating"  effect similiar to oceanreefresorts.com  I.e. the content floats over a background design that you create (i.e. the swirls on oceanreefresorts.com)
- Simple and easy to use..absolutely key
- Need a design that also would translate to other printed materials and marketing collateral.
- Vivid, colorful pictures on the home page (like oceanreefresorts.com and southernresorts.com) (you can find some pictures of the area at mooncreek.com/stock..to use as examples, needless to say I'll purchase the pictures from mooncreek.com if they work.  Alternatively, if you already have stock photos that works too.
- Our target audience are higher-end guests looking to vacation with their family - anything that can be done to evoke this through design style and pictures would be great.

Don't want

- Obvious, but something that doesn't look like I bought a template...cookie cutter themes, clipart, etc
- we sell vacations, so trying to get away from a corporate look..
