YOU BOOK DIRECTLY WITH THE PROPERTY MANAGER!
With our company, you are not just another Reservation Number. Each of our homes is managed by a specific Property Manager. When you book with us, you will be making a reservation with that home's Property Manager directly. From the initial inquiry, to the day you arrive until the day you depart, and after that, you will only have to deal with one person. You will have your agent's cell phone number and email address so that you may always contact them. No more call centers, no more re-explaining the situation to every new person to answer the phone. Unlike large hotels, or large property management companies, where you make a reservation through a call center with employees that have likely never been to the home or room they are describing to you, your agent with AMI Locals knows their property inside and out. They want to make sure you find the right home for you - and they use their product knowledge to ensure that happens. 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.
WHAT OTHER SUPPORT DOES AMI LOCALS OFFER?
We have office staff members that provide support for both our Property Managers 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.
"We pride ourselves on ensuring that our guests enjoy every aspect of their vacation here on our island. We are here to assist them in any way we can help!"-AMI Locals Staff
OKAY, I FOUND MY VACATION HOME, WHAT'S INCLUDED?
Our Property Managers and staff really go above and beyond to make sure your home is stocked with all the amenities you could want. If you are visiting for a special occasion or holiday and want to know if a house is stocked with a certain item that you need, just reach out to your personal Property Manager and ask. They know their home's content extremely well and can give you a full up to date inventory.
ALL of our homes are equipped with High Speed Internet Access and Wifi at no additional cost to you, so you can make all your friends jealous when you post all of your amazing vacation pictures!
Our Kitchens are ready for you if you want to cook a special island style dinner for your family and almost every property has a grill onsite. Our Kitchens are fully-stocked for you with dishware, cookware, bakeware, silverware, cooking utensils and barware.
Linens and Bedding, Bath Towels, and Beach Towels are all included; all of which are professionally & commercially laundered off-site.
Games For The Whole Family
Many of our homes even have fun extras like Ping Pong, Pool Tables, Foosball, Arcade games and video game consoles for the kids (or even the adults) to enjoy on a rainy day.
Head To The Beach
Many of our homes are well stocked with beach chairs, beach carts, toys, rafts, umbrellas, and whatever else you can think of to haul to the beach!
Swim Year Round
All of our pools are heated! So no matter what time of year you visit, you can enjoy a nice dip in the pool!
I HAVE ARRIVED, NOW HOW DO I GET IN?
When you arrive to your chosen luxury vacation home, the check-in process is simple. You will be given an entry code that is specifically generated for your reservation only and these codes are never duplicated. 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, your Property Manager will be available to answer any questions that you may have about your stay with us. They will also send you a pre-arrival email that will contain your entry code and any other pertinent information regarding your reservation. Your personal Property Manager will also leave you a welcome package and binder at your chosen vacation home. This binder will include useful information about the house and flyers or maps for you to use during your stay.
We are there for you if you need us
Once you arrive to your freshly inspected home, your personal Property Manager will always be available to you. While we are always very respectful of your privacy, if you should choose to meet your host in person, they would be more than happy to visit you within the first 24-48 hrs of your stay. Otherwise, please make yourself at home!
THE HOUSE IS AWESOME, BUT WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO DO?
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 AMI LIVE videos on our YouTube Channel 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. Being that we are all locals to this area, we are able to inspire you with all kinds of tailored activities to entertain your party. 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!
