Specialized Property Management

Being a boutique rental agency, we are able to hand pick the exact homes we wanted in our portfolio. We offer high-end, luxury vacation rentals which beckon the best clientele. We have chosen homes to suit all group sizes and specifications without compromising the highest standards that we hold ourselves to. Being this discerning has earned us the trust of many vacationers who have come back year after year. We are happy to help our guests with whatever they need before, during and after their stay.

Unlike some of the larger rental agencies, we know each and every property inside and out. We know all of the sleeping, eating and playing arrangements of each property and can answer any questions our guests have.

Our Owners also know they are in good hands with us managing their vacation rental. We have a proven track record of renting our properties for 40 + weeks a year. Our annual rental revenue is higher and our owners expenses are lower than many of the agencies on the island. We don't "nickel and dime" our owners.

We work for our commission! We walk each property before and after a guest's stay. We have trusted, bonded and insured maintenance and cleaning crews and staff who will alert us of any maintenance issues that need addressing. We are available any time for our owners.

LOOKING FOR A CHANGE? Our personalized service and honest approach to property management is exactly what you need. Give us a call for a one on one conversation to find out what Beach Retreats can do for you!

What makes us Different?

Any successful business is born out of necessity and/or the desire to simply provide a higher level of service that differentiates it and satisfies customers like no other. In this case it was both.

Beach Retreats was formalized in 2015 by two Canadian sisters, Emma and Claire -

"We grew up vacationing on Anna Maria Island and immediately fell in love with the beauty and old Florida charm. After 15 years of visiting with our parents, now having families of our own, we decided it was time to make our vacation paradise our full time home." - Emma Stringer

It was a huge leap of faith - a 1500 mile move to a brand new country, a new community, new schools, new friends and a brand new life. And it was worth it! We LOVE what we do. Making vacation dreams come true is our passion and there is no better place to do that than ANNA MARIA ISLAND!

Having owned vacation rentals on the island since 2009 and successfully managed them to the point where others asked if we might consider taking on more, Beach Retreats was born.

What People are Saying

Mike & Debbie W


We are most thankful for Emma & Claire and the wonderful job they do to insure that everyone's visit is all they hoped it would be, and more!! We love our little place in AMI and we feel very lucky to have Beach Retreats running the show!!

I have three vacation rental properties managed by Beach Retreats and have been very happy with the results. They provide exposure for my properties on all the major internet booking sites and they also have a loyal clientele who book directly with Beach Retreats because of prior experience with the company. Their size of operation allows a level of personal service to both owners and guests that larger, corporate operations lack. With increasing competition in the marketplace their nimble marketing has maintained a record of strong bookings.

I have had my property with Beach Retreats for almost 3 years and could not be happier. I have seen my annual rental revenue increase by approximately 15 % year over year and seen many repeat guests come back to stay. On the rare occasions when I personally use my rental property it is always meticulously maintained, clean and ready for my arrival. I love that I can contact Emma or Claire directly any time and they are quick to respond to any requests I have. The boutique feel of their agency gives guests an intimate feel and is so different from the "big box" agency I used to be with.

We were fortunate to purchase our first home in Holmes Beach in 2015. The builder gave us Emma and Claire’s contact information . That was a great decision to have them manage our home for all our rentals needs. In 2016, we purchased our second rental . At the time it was in a realtors hands and we stayed with them for a short time. It didn’t take us long to move that property with Beach Retreats as well. We enjoy spending time in Holmes Beach each year, but feel very confident that our guests needs are addressed promptly and efficiently when we aren’t there . It’s always been a pleasure working with them and we hope to purchase another property soon with the hope that they will take on another rental for us.

I'm on my 3rd year of being a vacation rental owner and, at the beginning, was concerned about how the rental revenue would be for me as I needed to generate at least $100,000 to cover all of my expenses. The girls assured me that it was possible and that they would work hard to fill my house. Well, 2 years in and my property is making $140,000! I am super happy with the experience I've had with Beach Retreats. There are so many agencies on the island that it's tough to decide who to list your property with. I have to say that I feel like the owners of this agency are honest and trustworthy - these are very important qualities for me and should be for anyone entrusting such a large investment with someone. I 100% recommend Emma & Claire at Beach Retreats!
