Welcome to Mighty Big Beach, your “home away from home” during your Panama City Beach getaway! As you know, this is our personal home and not a hotel. So please treat it as you would staying at a friend’s or relative’s house. By following these simple Mighty Big Beach House Rules, you’ll surely have a comfortable and amazing stay at our beach house!
Check out our Mighty Big Beach House Rules below:
Only the guests registered for your booking can be on the premises during your stay. At most 24 people, including children and day visitors, may use the house at any given time. In addition, we will charge $100 per guest per day for all guests above the maximum capacity.
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. We will also charge an extra cleaning fee if you leave butts in the yards or the driveway.
Mighty Big Beach House Policy on the Use of Property
House Appliances + Features: Use all appliances and house features only as intended. Any evidence of damage and/or destruction from misuse or abuse will result in repair/replacement costs.
Linens and Towels: Please DO NOT use the white towels for the pool or hot tub, on the floors, to wipe spills, to remove make-up, and/or for dyeing your hair (yes, this happens sometimes). Also, please DO NOT wash any of our white linens and towels with your colored laundry. We would hate to charge you extra to replace stained linens and towels.
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, and wet wipes.
No Garbage Disposal: Use the sink strainers when washing dishes. 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: Throw your garbage into the trash cans 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. They can cause bodily harm and possibly death if not used properly. You are responsible for supervising ALL guests, including anyone on the property, whom you directly or indirectly invited. Use at your own risk. Be vigilant at ALL times in looking after children and anyone who cannot swim. You are also responsible for the safety/maintenance of pool equipment. You must inform us if you suspect anything is not functioning properly. An electronic door lock shall secure the interior access to the pool area. This is to keep children from accessing the pool unsupervised.
Swimming Pool Use: The swimming pool undergoes cleaning and maintenance every week. 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. We prohibit the use of glass dinnerware and/or drinkware in the pool area. Rinse off before using the pool.
Pool Heat: The pool heater is available for use only during the cold winter months of November to March. Per our listing, we charge an extra fee per stay to warm the pool up to 83 degrees. Note that we do not heat the pool above this temperature in order to optimally maintain the pool’s system and energy use. Kindly note also that our pool IS NOT a hot tub. If you would like to soak in hot water, please feel free to take a bath in one of our many bathtubs!
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. Keep the hot tub covered when not in use. Do not place the hot tub cover on the ground. Doing so will likely damage the cover and/or contaminate the hot tub water with dirt and grass. This will result in extra cleaning fee charges. Please rinse off using the outdoor showernext to the spa before using the hot tub.
Energy Use: Turn off all TVs and lights when not in use.
Close Doors and Windows: 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 and beetles, particularly the Asian cockroach and the Palmetto Bug (a.k.a. the American cockroach). Both of these species are outdoor roaches and strong fliers. They tend to follow you into the home because they are attracted to the light. This home undergoes professional pest control maintenance every month. However, please keep the house bug-free and cooled by closing doors and windows.
Clean Kitchen: Clean dishes, kitchen counters, and dining tables after every meal. Keep all food in sealed containers or in the refrigerator to get rid of pests (e.g. cockroaches, ants, and rodents).
Be Respectful: This home is located in a residential neighborhood with permanent residents. Hence, 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: Storms may cause electricity, internet, and/or cable service interruptions. However, 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, running from June 1 to November 30 every year. We will not give refunds for travel cancellations due to weather conditions. Please plan accordingly, and avail traveler’s insurance, as you deem necessary.
