It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing Waddington Flats 😍

These flats are located in Victoria, BC, and we a. love that they have direct booking site linked in their instagram bio and b. that on that website, there is an option to watch a video tour, right there above the fold! This video tour looks like it was professionally done, because it’s so top-notch!

We think that video is going to be HUGE int he future for short-term rentals and vacation rentals, and what better way to really show potential guests your space!? So, dear readers, this is your sign to incorporate more video into your digital real estate! 🎥

As far as design goes, we LOVE what they’re doing here. We love the pops of color, the grandma chic wallpaper of one of the flats (Sarah is a huge fan)! And we also love that they have really diversified the style of each flat and showcasing many different design styles and themes!

Which one would you stay in? 👀

Well done Waddington Flats! 👏🏼

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!
