Little Beach House Rules

Welcome to the Beach

Welcome to Mighty Little 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. 

Maximum Capacity

Only the permitted number of guests registered for your booking may be on-premise during your stay. No more than 5 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.

Prohibited Activities

  • 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: A trash can is located 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.
  • Be Eco-Friendly: Turn off all TVs and lights when not in use.

Nuisance Avoidance

  • 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 any excessive noise and music will definitely disturb your neighbors. Please observe quiet hours outdoors from 10 P.M. CST to 8 A.M. CST and be respectful to your surrounding neighbors. In the event that your neighbor is too loud or disruptive during any part of your stay, please notify us IMMEDIATELY so that we may resolve the situation as soon as possible.

Unforeseen Circumstances

  • 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 due to weather conditions. Please plan accordingly and purchase traveler’s insurance, as you deem necessary.

In the event that the unit is found in any of the following conditions upon your departure, you will be charged extra deep cleaning fees and/or replacement costs. 

  • The unit is left extremely dirty with trash, unwashed dishes, cigarette butts littered on decks or grounds, etc. An extra cleaning fee of $150 shall be charged.
