Mighty Little Beach House Rules

Check out our Mighty Little Beach House Rules.

Welcome to Mighty Little 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 Little Beach House Rules, you’ll surely have a comfortable and amazing stay at our beach house!

Check out our Mighty Little Beach House Rules below:

Maximum Capacity

Only the guests registered for your booking can be on the premises during your stay. At most 5 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.

Prohibited Activities

  • No illegal activities are allowed on the premises.
  • No drugs and fireworks are allowed on the premises.
  • No large group events, parties, or gatherings are allowed on-site. Anyone who is NOT a part of your reservation may not use the home and its amenities or be on the premises.
  • No smoking/vaping of any kind indoors. Guests may smoke on the decks (with doors and windows closed) and outside areas only. Throw away all cigarette butts into the trash or ash trays. 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.
  • No pets are allowed on the premises, unless authorized as part of your reservation at the time of booking. Please refer to our Pet Policies and House Rules for more information. Any evidence of an unpermitted pet(s) found in or about the rental property will be grounds for expedited eviction and/or forfeiture of all monies paid, including your security deposit. You will be responsible for any and all costs for enforcing such a termination from the property and/or any related services required to bring the home back to its original condition.
  • No parking on the lawn or public right-of-ways (e.g. street or sidewalks) in the neighborhood per City Code. As stated in our listing, you may only park in the designated driveway(s) in front of our home. Due to complaints, the City of Panama City Beach has started to enforce local ordinances to stop illegal overcrowded street parking throughout the city. Fortunately, the city does offer 3 overnight parking lots you can pay to use during your stay. For contact Panama City Beach for more parking information re: the city lot locations, operating hours and parking fees.

Mighty Little Beach House Policy on Use of Property

  • 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.
  • Keep All Doors and Windows Closed: To keep the bugs out, house cool, and control the interior humidity levels, it is very critical that you keep all doors and windows closed during your stay. Due to our area’s high humidity and your constant use of air conditioning inside the home, leaving the doors and windows open may cause the HVAC system to freeze over AND cause water damage to the walls, ceilings, and electronic door locks with condensation build-up. We would hate to have to charge you for these damages.
  • Thermostats: If you need the temperature changed, please contact us and we will be happy to update the thermostat for you. We’ve had to lock our thermostat because multiple guests have accidentally caused our HVAC system to freeze and break, rendering the unit unusable for weeks as we waited for parts. Let’s avoid that and just buzz us if you need to change the temp.
  • Beds, Daybeds, Trundles, and Sofas: DO NOT jump on any beds, daybeds, trundles, and sofas. These furnishings will (and have) broken when guests have left their kids to jump and play on them. You will be charged to replace any damaged furniture that shows misuse.
  • Linens and Towels: Please DO NOT use the white towels for the beach, 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, 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: Throw your garbage into the trash cans on the right side of the garage. Please put the can 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.
  • Energy Use: Turn off all TVs and lights when not in use.

Nuisance Avoidance

  • Bugs: 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 keeping doors and windows closed and the house clean of food debris at all times.
  • 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.

Unforeseen Circumstances

  • 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.
