Earn More Income with Your Vacation Rental

At Amz Getaways we know vacation rental marketing. When a new owner comes on board we input our listings in over 100 well-known vacation rental marketing websites, including ours. (e.g., Expedia, HomeAway, VRBO, Airbnb, etc.), in addition, we’re always promoting our rentals to our database 10,000 travelers who have stayed or inquired with us in the decade we’ve been in business. At Amz we’ve also introduced a revenue management system specifically designed for the vacation rental industry to maximize booking profitability. When you join us we work hard to make sure your vacation rental is properly marketed with HDR photographs, virtual tours, and an outstanding listing. With our combined marketing and social media presence, we’ll make sure you stand out above the crowds.

Multiple Owner Plans

Amz Getaways is a full-service real estate company, and with many clients, we understand some are more DIY or hands-on than others. At Amz Getaways that’s okay as well. We offer a full-service concierge plan, and a self-service plan for the owners that want help in marketing, collecting/paying taxes, and booking guests, but can handle the other details themselves. With the two different options, we believe our owners have choices and are never locked into one specific plan as with most vacation rental property managers.

What owners can expect

Dedicated Owner Representative

Our owner representatives are available to you whenever the need arises. You can call, text, or email your questions or concerns.

Detailed Itemized Month, and Annual Statements

We process payments via electronic ACH once a month and email a statement to you with a breakdown of bookings made, expenses if any, and the owner’s net income.

Always ready for Guest with our Housekeeping app and procedures

Ninety-nine percent of our guest give our housekeepers a four or five-star service, and housekeepers often are incentivized to provide the guest with the ultimate first impression.

Owner Stays

As an owner with Amz Getaways owners can have spontaneous trips and weekend getaways. With long-term rentals, your home is never available to you, your friends, or family. A vacation home is always available for you, your friends, and your family (provided it’s not already reserved). Our owner representatives make reserving your own vacation simple and easy. (Fine Print: We ask you to leave major holidays, and peak season open if possible to maximize profitability)

Exceptional Listings, and Marketing

Owners properties are listed in our system and then syndicated to over 100 different vacation rental marketing websites including Airbnb, HomeAway, VRBO, Tripadvisor, and more.

HDR Photography

Each property is professionally photographed and staged with your existing furnishings. Once a listing agreement is entered Amz will schedule a photography session and provide a worksheet to properly prepare the listing.

No Long Term Commitments 

While retaining homeowners through our excellent service and proven financial results is our goal, and not long-term agreements. If you aren’t happy with our performance, you can stop renting your home with us at any time with notice. We ask that you honor any future reservations on the calendar and give the property team some time to wind down the marketing.

Detailed Support Staff

Propane tank refills, housekeeping, BBQ grill cleanings, hot tub cleanings, mowings, and more. With our conceirge plan, we can schedule, arrange, and meet with vendors on your behalf. (terms and conditions may apply)

We are Amz Getaways

At Amz Getaways we’ve been in business for a decade, and have seen many things change in this industry. We treat every home as if we owned it, but don’t personally own any vacation rentals as many other vacation rental property managers do. We believe this affords Amz the opportunity to unbiasedly book owners properties without a conflict of interest.

Gain Peace of Mind

Dedicated Account and Homeowner Representative

At Amz we encourage owners to utilize their dedicated Account Management team and contact us, adjust your listing inputs, view your statements, payments, ask questions, and communicate with us anytime, anywhere.
