Add all your listings with amenities, bed types, sleeping arrangements, pricing, and more categorized details to help guests choose the needed property quickly and easily.

Resort website templatesAccommodation Booking System

Ciestra Property Rental WordPress theme is powered by our custom plugin – the popular WordPress reservation system. It’s a built-in powerhouse for all your bookings, properties directory, seasonal prices, rates, taxes and fees management and the whole array of tools for the lodging business.

The real-time search availability form enables guests to automatically search through all rentals and book online instantly or leave a booking request.

The premium MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin is included for free!

Beautiful Galleries & Slideshows

This real estate WordPress theme gives you a lot of space for images and calls to action. Keep your website up-to-date with what travelers want: provide helpful info about nearby bars and attractions, services, landscapes, events, and more.

The WordPress rental theme is equipped with unique, easily editable Elementor builder content modules for providing an unforgettable pre-vacation experience for your guests.

Sync Bookings to OTAs like Airbnb

Don’t miss on other popular listing websites! Rent out the properties elsewhere and sync bookings to your independent website built with the Ciestra Property Rental WordPress theme.

Thanks to the iCal support, the reservation system is able to automatically sync your hotel bookings to external OTAs without overbooking (make sure the medium platform supports iCal). Forget about channel managers and third-party commissions!

Prepayment or Pay at the Property

You are free to enable guests to pay online safely at a full or deposit price (fixed / percentage) or charge them after arrival.

There are several out-of-the-box payment gateways you can enable: PayPal, 2Checkout, Stripe, Braintree, and Beanstream/Bambora. Need more methods? Purchase our Pro WooCommerce Payments add-on to add a desirable gateway without coding.

Weekly and Monthly Rates

Need to set up a complex & dynamic pricing system? Simple. Discount your hotel rooms or other resort accommodations automatically for a longer stay with weekly, monthly, or other customizable rates. Designate price variables based on the room’s capacity.

With the integrated WordPress Hotel Booking plugin, you can set any number of days and apply any per-night price for the set stay-in duration and the number of guests.

Simple & Advanced Booking Rules

For each property and season you can set up min/max days to stay, available check-in and check-out dates, block chosen units for a certain period of time, and more.

Availability calendars of all properties will display available and unavailable days in real-time according to your rules.

Free & Paid Bookable Extras

An easy way to entice guests to buy more extras along with the property bookings: offer extra packages and services and eventually find a bigger sum in every check! They can be added to the cart on the checkout page.

Set the price per accommodation/guest; once or per night. You can also offer free services that must be booked in advance, a feature which is rarely seen in other property rental website templates.

Instagram Gallery

Instagram is a perfect medium for hotels and vacation rentals to engage with guests and project their stories.

With Ciestra, you can focus on image storytelling with a lightweight and beautiful Instagram gallery that automatically displays a feed of your latest Instagram uploads. Generate leads easily and turn them into clients.

Created with Elementor Builder

One of the main strengths of this WordPress hotel template is 100% user-friendly customization: tune in every piece of Ciestra with Elementor visual page builder and other WordPress tools. Intuitive drag-and-drop content manipulation, inline editing, and more things non-tech users love.

Customize and employ the unique Elementor content blocks we created on other pages with several clicks.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I set up a WordPress rental site?

Setting up a WordPress rental site can be done in several steps. Here’s a general overview of the process:

  1. Choose a domain name and web hosting provider: The first step is to select a domain name for your rental site and a reliable web hosting provider to host your website.
  2. Install WordPress: Most web hosting providers offer a one-click WordPress installation process, making it easy to set up your website.
  3. Choose a rental theme: Next, you’ll need to choose a WordPress theme designed specifically for rental sites. You can find several options in the WordPress theme directory or through third-party marketplaces. The Ciestra theme mentioned above is a great solution for a property rental WordPress website.
  4. Install and configure necessary plugins: Depending on the features you want on your rental site, you may need to install and configure specific plugins. For example, you might need a booking plugin to enable users to book your rental property directly from your site. And the WordPress Hotel Booking plugin by MotoPress is an all-in-one plugin to build a property management system.
  5. Customize your site: Once you have your theme and plugins installed, you can begin customizing your site by adding content, images, and other elements to make it visually appealing and user-friendly.

It’s worth noting that there are many rental-specific WordPress themes and plugins available that can help streamline the process of setting up your site. You may also want to consider working with a professional web designer or developer to ensure your rental site meets your specific needs and is optimized for search engines.

Customer & Technical support are both awesome 5/ 5stars

I have mistakenly bought the wrong plugin from their website and still they give an option to have an exchange to the right plugin, and they assisted me all through out the process. Unlike my previous plugin used from other provider that has a lot to install and setup, this is the only template that does all you need.

Very good 5/ 5stars

The theme it’s simple and you can have all the function that you need for a booking property.
The suport was good and profesional.
You can find the tutorial for each function from webite about the booking.

Many thank’s

A complete package for renting apartments 5/ 5stars

First of all I was afraid of building a rental website via WordPress, because it requires a lot of features and settings and there are always a lot to customize. However I think I chose the best possible solution that I was able to find. I don’t need to pay for any third party software so no monthly fees or commisions are required. Other templates didn’t have calendar sync feature and for me that’s the most important thing.

Just to know, if you have the same listing on and, you will have to import both calendars as each of them syncing only their own reservations.

It takes time to get used to work with the Elementor but then it doesn’t require much knowledge, I would say only CSS to make it look the way you want.

The only plugin that I use except ones that are recommended is Justified Gallery, which makes galleries look more professional.

Last, the support is great so far, I always get a quick response.
