We highly recommend that you use a laptop/desktop computer to work on these instructions.

The 6 steps of the installation MUST BE FOLLOWED IN ORDER.

■  STEP 1 - Format your OwnerRez Property Information

  Follow the instructions below to make sure your property’s info is complete and formatted correctly in OwnerRez.

A.  Property Photo

     Follow instructions in the

     screen shot.

B.  Property URL - Make sure that Property URL is configured in OwnerRez

(Do this for each property you are adding.)

• Under Properties > Select property > General Info > Property URL 

• This URL should be the page where the booking widget for YOUR property is located.

     (This is the widget where guests can enter dates and inquire/book your cabin.)

C.   General Property Info
• Under Properties > Select Property > General Info
• Make sure your minimum and maximum occupancy, bedrooms, amenities,  and minimum/maximum rates are set up in OwnerRez.

■  STEP 2 - Install the Shared Widget HTML Code on a Sub-Page of your Website



•This custom widget was created by OwnerRez for our group. The widget code will not be found in your OwnerRez settings. You must use the custom HTML code provided here.


•The widget will automatically update on your website whenever new properties are added. You will not need to update the html code. HOWEVER, you may need to manually resize the container which holds the widget if your website builder doesn’t do so automatically.


•  You can see examples of the Tile View Property Search Widget installed on these websites:


•  The tiled widget should display 12 property "tiles" if you have made the widget container the correct size.
