Tiki Suites Key West
Project Role:
- Website Design
- Custom Rental Bookings Integration
- Cohesive Brand Strategy
- Iconography

After exploding in the Key West market for vacation rentals and earning the status of "Superhost" with AirBnb, Tiki-Suites realized their need for expansiveness beyond the limited capacity of AirBnb and their sole reliance on a third party platform to generate business. Tiki suites reached out to the expert team of Orlando web designers - Dark Matter Digital to help expand to their own independent , sole platform.

Challenge & Solution

The Challenge

With Tiki Suites realizing that their business solely depended on a third party, high-fee platform, Tiki Suites needed another solution to showcase their amazing rental properties, local amenities, and draw attention to their brand and offerings.

We brought to their attention that AirBnb was benefiting  from their popularity and a lack of a website of their own, as market trends and keyword data indicated that Tiki Suites was being searched 2,400 times / month on average.

The Solution

Dark Matter Digital brought together branding experts, web designers and marketing strategist to develop a solid digital presence for Tiki Suites. From the ground up - we curated a brand strategy, branding guidelines, and a custom developed website with a custom rental property solution integrated. With the work done by Dark Matter Digital, Tiki Suites can move their business to their own independent, fee-free platform.


branding + style guides, custom iconography

Thoughtful branding and style guides paired with custom graphics and iconography complement the voice of Tiki Suites. As a pristine, Caribbean-like vibe, the branding experts at Dark Matter Digital needed fonts, icons and colors to match.

The color palette of Tiki Suites is unique, yet subtle but keeps the brand voice and feel throughout.


full Rental managment system

We knew that presenting a custom, easier to use rental management system would suit any owner, office manager or staff member. Cutting down the office work and focusing on other aspects of the Tiki Suites business.

Our developed rental management system provides an intuitive, easy to use system to track reservations, income, issue pre-authorizations, and easily integrate with big name lead management tools such as Salesforce.
