Registered Guest must provide copy of ID, be at least 25 years of age and be present throughout entire stay.

Quiet Hours 10p-8a. You are vacationing in a residential area. Please be a good neighbor by keeping the noise to a respectful level during the day and night. Excessive and unreasonable noise can deprive neighbors of the peaceful enjoyment of their private property.

Reservations are typically taken for 7 night Saturday-Saturday stays. However, we can offer flexible stays with varying minimum night requirements and non-Saturday check-ins/check-outs during most of the year with exception to holidays and peak weeks unless city ordinances prohibit it. Always feel free to ask prior to booking to see if this is a possibility as we may not be able to accommodate changes after booking.

POOL & SPA (if any):
The pool is heated year round at no additional cost for the convenience and comfort of our guests. Pool temperatures are set between 82-85 degrees and will not be set higher due to keeping proper chemical balance, clarity, and cleanliness of the pools. Due to strict city noise ordinances pool heaters and filters do not run during the hours of 10p-8a. Please note that cooler ambient temperatures (>20 degree difference between water and air temperature) may result in pool heater unable to compensate the difference. We are not responsible for cold spells causing cooler pool temperatures or unexpected failure of equipment. Please note that a residential spa is a section of pool that once turned on provides relaxation, misting bubbles and warmer temperatures in the high 90s - low 100s but are not permitted to remain on 24/7 or will not reach temperatures like that of a commercial hot tub. Spas may not be operational during the months of June - September to avoid high temperatures of pool water which is detrimental to keeping proper pool chemical balances. Guests are required to read and abide by all posted rules, safety and operating information. Under no circumstance is any guest allowed to adjust pool equipment. Failure to abide may result in guests being fined or liable for any damages to equipment.

Please note this home may be equipped with Ring, Nest or other exterior cameras viewing front door, driveways, pool equipment, and entry/exits of backyard areas only. Cameras are only intended to keep property safe and secure, monitor deliveries, assure occupancy, and are not angled into any areas where guests would assume or expect privacy.

All our homes and linens are cleaned, sanitized, and inspected between each guest per industry standards.  A starter set of basic amenities, linens, towels, and bedding are provided at the beginning of your stay per home occupancy. Daily housekeeping or linen services are not included in your stay. 

Additional cleaning and laundry services are available by request mid-stay at additional charge. For stays of 28-days or more, a mid-stay clean will be required to be scheduled and paid by guest at additional cost.

This home participates in our Professional Linen Program. This ensures high quality linens and towels are provided according to the home’s occupancy at the beginning of your stay. These are professionally laundered at a commercial facility between each guest.  Please keep in mind extra sets are not kept in homes. 

Golf carts are a fun and easy way to get around the island! After booking, reserve one for your stay with our sister company, Once Upon A Beach Carts, for an exclusive discount for our vacation rental guests!

Baby equipment is not available for use at the home for safety and sanitation reasons. We are however partnered with local companies offering rentals of these items including pick-up and drop-off.

This home was absolutely superb!! It had everything we could have wanted and more. My children loved the foosball table, the ping pong table, and the ring toss, as well as the Xbox. The adults enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and the outdoor bar area. The house itself was immaculate and very comfortable. There was plenty of room for my family of four, as well as my parents. We will defiantly be renting Batemans again!!

Working with Nikki and Michael was excellent. The house is beyond beautiful, everything you could possibly think of has been provided. This is a MUST Go place, rent a golf cart and boat and live the best life. Owners are beyond accommodating , outside living space is perfect. We did Thanksgiving outside with family and it was PERFECT. Thank you for such a great experience, and my family and I cannot wait to go back!

This will be the house we book again! It greatly exceeded our expectations and the pictures do not do it justice. It was sparkling clean, much larger than expected and our welcome gift was so unexpected. The added bonus was the abundance of blankets, beach towels and toiletries. It was like being at home but of course so much better. The location is amazing and so relaxing. You are a short stroll to the beach and downtown, yet tucked away in your own private oasis. Anytime we had a minor question, Nikki responded back immediately. It was as if we had our own private concierge. I do not have a single thing I would change about this home and this house will be the reason we return to AMI as we often visit different location in FL to escape the cold of Ohio. I LOVE this house and we plan to return ASAP. Thanks for all!

This beautiful home has everything you could ever need. It is gorgeous and looks like it should be in a magazine. The four bedrooms are huge and my teenagers appreciated having their own space as well as bathroom. The beds are comfy and there are tons of extra blankets. There are plenty of regular towels, pool towels and beach towels. The location is perfect and we were able to walk to the pier, Bean Point or Pine Avenue for an ice cream break. The garage is fully stocked with everything you need for beach as well as fishing gear. My daughter even caught a 26" fish off the dock in back of the house! We can't wait to book our next trip to Anna Maria Island!!

Lovely, comfortable, private home that is fully stocked from the kitchen to the outside amenities (especially liked playing Corn Hole in the evenings). We enjoyed the opportunity to boat and kayak from the dock, and our main mode of transportation was golf cart. The beach at Bean Point is expansive and beautiful and is about a 10 minute walk from the home or quick golf cart ride. Visiting Egmont Key was a favorite plus enjoyed seeing the dolphins on the way there! We encourage all to take in a gorgeous sunrise from the pier area and a sunset from the beach. If anything, there is so much to do here, there is simply not enough time in a week span to leisurely do it all! We were also thrilled to see a manatee from the dock!

Absolutely amazing! Our first visit to AMI! This home featured ample space for 4 couples to have private bedrooms/bathrooms plus areas to dine/cook/entertain in different areas of the home. We enjoyed the outdoor area, pool/hot tub and fishing! Beautifully appointed with all the amenities! Excellent location! We will be back!! Thanks!

Yup, we'll be back! This house was perfect for our party of 8 (4 couples). All of the living area/bedrooms/laundry room were located on the main (upper) floor. The living room, kitchen, and dining room were open and great for group meals and hanging out together! The King bedrooms were perfect for each couple with each having it's own attached ensuite. The decor was current and lovely. The house was clean and well cared for...and the outdoor space....AMAZING! Such a fun outdoor area under the house blending into the back yard/pool area. The pool is heated, the spa gets hot, the sectional seating area has a fire pit table, and the dining/bar area has a TV for watching football games. There's also a hammock, foosball table, and ping pong table. What else could you ask for?? The house was well equipped with everything we needed, including plenty of beach chairs, beach buggies for hauling beach gear, coolers, beach towels, umbrellas and tents, and even fishing gear for fishing in the canal behind the house! When I reached out to the rental company for help with the Spa, they responded quickly and the information was helpful! We enjoyed sitting on the back porch in the mornings drinking coffee and watching the fish splash in the canal. We LOVED this house and had an amazing visit to AMI!

If you are looking to relax in a beautiful and fun fill spot, then this is the place for you. The apartment is outstanding and well equipped, set in a peaceful and private setting and the local places to eat and drink will not disappoint. We were amazed by the beaches with their white sand and clear blue seas. Nothing is too much trouble for Once Upon a Beach and our stay was a perfect mixture of slowing down and sightseeing. A big thank you from our family for making this stay special.

This house is truly marvelous! Our second visit to the Bateman's and AMI. We absolutely love the house and all that it offers. A massive kitchen and dinning area, large living room and very elegant bedrooms makes for an extremely comfortable stay. The outside area is awesome, the swimming pool, spa, table tennis, foosball and bar area with TV are perfect for hanging out at the house and firing up the grill. The dock on the canal is great for fishing off of (fishing gear in the garage) and spending hours just watching the manatee's go by. The house is in a wonderful location within walking distance to the local stores and restaurants, there are also many golf cart rentals near by. The beach "Bean Point" is amazing and only a short walk from the house, beautiful white sand, aqua color water and never very crowded. The house even has, beach chairs, coolers, canopy and a beach buggy to haul the gear to and from the beach!! We LOVE this house and the local area!
