YOU BOOK DIRECTLY WITH our reservations team!

With our company, you are not just another Reservation Number.  
Our homes are all unique, have amazing features, and are in beautiful locations - and our amazing AMI Locals Reservations Team knows the ins-and-outs of each property.  Unlike large hotels, or large property management companies, where you make a reservation with employees that have likely never been to the home or room they are describing to you, your Reservation Agent with AMI Locals knows the property.  They want to make sure you find the right home for you - and they use their knowledge to ensure that happens.  Call us today!  We get to know you, we listen to your questions and feedback, and we always try to make sure we put you in the exact home that will best suit you.


We have fantastic Guest Services staff members that provide support for both our Reservations Team and our guests.  We also have a dedicated in-house Maintenance staff (not outsourced) to always lend a helping hand and to keep our properties in tip-top shape before you arrive; as well as address any unexpected situation that might occur.  Also, our cleaning crew adheres to the strictest guidelines to make your home is "hotel fresh" for your stay.  Lastly, we have all of our linens commercially laundered off-site, to ensure the highest sanitation standards possible.

When you arrive to your chosen luxury vacation home, the check-in process is simple.

You don't have to pick up any cumbersome keys or wait in line in our office. Your vacation can begin right away! This is your time, and we don't want to waste a second of it! 

Prior to your arrival, we will be available to answer any questions that you may have about your stay with us. We will also send you a pre-arrival email that will contain your unique entry code and any other pertinent information regarding your reservation. The in-home Rental Binder will include useful information about the house and flyers or maps for you to use during your stay.

We want to use our local knowledge to help you enjoy your stay. Shoot us a text, give us a call, and we will help you vacation like a local. All of our team members live on or around Anna Maria Island. We are local through and through! Not all of us were lucky enough to be born here, but we are all lucky enough to call this area home now. We LOVE spending time enjoying all that our island has to offer just as much as our visitors do. We fish, we dive, we bike, we surf, we kayak, we beach it, we boat, we eat out, we shop, and we do it all locally. You can see us in action by checking out our videos on YouTube and watch us enjoying our island lifestyle. This will give you some good ideas for sure. You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest for vacation motivation and tons of videos and pictures of Local Life on Anna Maria Island. We have advice and suggestions for anything from area excursions to island dining to our favorite spots to just chill out on the beach! So please do not hesitate to ask!
