Benefits of staying at a vacation rental

There are numerous benefits to staying in a vacation rental property managed by a professional.  The members of AMIVPA have all made a commitment to proactively work towards ensuring Anna Maria Island continues to provide a safe, fun and authentic Florida family vacation.  Our proactive education further ensures guests have fun but do not disrupt our neighborhoods.  After all, what makes Anna Maria Island so special is the mix of residential and visitor accommodations.

Don’t be scammed!  You can be assured any of our members are responsible vacation rental managers.  Anna Maria Island is no longer the sleepy vacation rental town of the past.  Once a month we hear heartbreaking stories where Anna Maria Island renters are scammed out of their money and more important their trip to paradise.  If using Craigslist or even on occasion single property vacation rental pages like VRBO you could be scammed.  If you do book via a third party vacation rental website make sure the rental has been verified by the listing service and/or uses a payment term through a legitimate third party to ensure your money is safe!  Scamming has become a big problem in our industry and of course the safest bet is to use a professional property manager when scheduling your vacation to Paradise.  You can rest assured if you are renting a property through one of our members your vacation is in safe hands.  Our members are active in our community and understand what responsible renting in our community means!

While our offices are not open 365 days a year, we do have 24/7 services in cases of emergencies.  Better yet, on business days you have the confidence you can physically walk into our brick and mortar office and discuss your vacation rental details with a polite, professional, vacation rental staff member.  Property professionals have a large resource pool to handle any and every opportunity for improvement quickly and efficiently.  Property professionals have equipment on hand to handle all varieties of emergencies.  A great example is the dilemma created when a refrigerator no longer works and is under warranty.  Anyone ever deal with a warranty company and how quickly they respond?  Property professionals often have full size loaner equipment on hand to handle emergencies quickly and efficiently.  Think a non professional property manager keeps spare refrigerators on hand in the case of emergencies?

We hope you will visit our piece of paradise soon and be sure to patronize a member of AMIVPA that is proactively working to ensure Anna Maria Island continues to stay authentically, old Florida!
