Welcome to Mighty Big Beach house, our “home away from home.” As you know, this is our personal home and not a hotel, so please treat our beach home as you would staying at a friend’s or relative’s home by following these simple house rules.
Only the permitted number of guests registered for your booking may be on-premise during your stay. No more than 22 people, including children and day visitors, may use the house at any given time. For all guests above the maximum capacity, you will be charged $100 per guest per day.
No illegal activities allowed on the premises.
No drugs and fireworks allowed on the premises.
No large group events, parties, or gatherings on-site.
No smoking/vaping of any kind indoors. Guests may smoke outside only (with doors and windows closed). Throw away all cigarette butts and waste into the outdoor urns. Any evidence of smoking/vaping inside the house will result in a forfeit of the security deposit in its entirety. You will also be charged an extra cleaning fee if you leave butts in the yards or driveway.
Use of Property
Furniture Use: Do not move any furniture, especially the pool table. Any evidence of the pool table being moved will result in a forfeit of the damage deposit in its entirety.
House Appliances + Features: Use all appliances and house features only as intended. Any evidence that guests have damaged and/or destroyed any part of the property from misuse or abuse will result in repair or replacement costs in their entirety.
Toilet Use: Do not flush anything other than toilet paper into the toilet. Prohibited items include, but are not limited to, feminine products, diapers, paper towels, tissues, wipes of any kind, or trash of any kind. This house uses a lift pump. Any foreign matter may cause damage to the pump and back-up the sewer line. Any evidence that guests have damaged the pump and/or sewer main from misuse or abuse will result in repair or replacement costs in their entirety.
No Garbage Disposal: Use the sink strainers when washing dishes, and dispose of all food scraps into the trash because there is NO garbage disposal.
BBQ Grill: After using the gas grill to cook, remove any food pieces to reset it for next use.
Trash Pick Up: Trash cans are located on the LEFT side of the garage. Please put the cans out on Monday and Thursday evenings for early morning pick-up the next day. Once emptied, please return the cans to the side of the house.
Swimming Pool Safety: Swimming pools can be a potentially dangerous feature that can cause bodily harm and possibly death if not used properly. You are responsible for supervising ALL guests, including anyone on the property that was directly invited by you or not. Use at your own risk. Children and anyone who cannot swim must be vigilantly supervised at ALL times. You are responsible for the safety/maintenance of pool equipment and must inform us if you suspect anything is not functioning properly. All doors and window access to the pool area shall be secured to keep children from accessing the pool unsupervised.
Swimming Pool Use: The Swimming pool is cleaned and serviced weekly. During your stay, you will need to empty the skimmer daily. Keep all floaties out of the pool when not in use. Do not bring pets or any sharp/small objects into the pool. Use of glass dining or drinkware is strictly prohibited from the pool area. Rinse off at the outdoor shower before using.
Hot Tub: Do not use the hot tub if you recently consumed alcohol, are pregnant or have pre-existing health conditions. There are health implications to using this facility. Use at your own risk. Store the cover next to the hot tub when in use and keep the hot tub covered when not in use. Do not place the hot tub cover on the ground because it will likely damage the cover and/or contaminate the hot tub water with dirt and grass, resulting in extra cleaning fee charges. Please rinse off using the outdoor showerlocated next to the spa before using.
Be Eco-Friendly: Turn off all TVs and lights when not in use.
Close Doors: Keep ALL external doors closed at all times to prevent unwanted pests from coming inside. Florida is a tropical state with many large flying bugs & beetles, particularly the Palmetto Bug (a.k.a. the American cockroach). This home is maintained on a professional pest control service every month. Keep the house bug-free and cooled by closing doors.
Clean Kitchen: Clean dishes, kitchen counters, and dining tables after every meal and keep all food in sealed containers or refrigerators to avoid pests (e.g. cockroaches, ants, and rodents).
Be Respectful: This home is part of a duplex, so your excessive noise and music will disturb your neighbors. Please keep your noise levels respectful and observe quiet hours outdoors from 10 P.M. CST to 8 A.M. CST.
Utility Disruptions: Electricity, internet, and/or cable services may get interrupted from time to time. These disruptions are rare and services usually resume after a couple of hours.
Hurricanes & Storms: The Emerald Coast of Florida has a widely known hurricane season that runs from June 1 to November 30 every year. NO refunds will be given due to weather conditions. Please plan accordingly and purchase traveler’s insurance, as you deem necessary.
