The home has two grills, gas and charcoal, as well as an outdoor shower! This home also has a large private dock so you can bring your own boat and store in your own backyard!

With clearly marked signage, accessing the water for kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and more is a breeze. If you're looking to soak up some sun on the beach, Bayfront Park on the bay side or a leisurely stroll down Magnolia to the Gulf of Mexico (a mere 15-minute walk) provides picturesque waterfront settings for your enjoyment. For added convenience, our location boasts easy access to the nearest free trolley stop, just a 7-minute walk north, allowing you to explore the Gulf side of the island with ease. Embrace the coastal lifestyle and make the most of your stay with us!

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.

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.

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.

Wonderful Time
This house was perfect in so many ways. It had great views, beautifully decorated, comfy beds, and all the essentials we needed. The location was great too. Close to restaurants, shopping and beaches. Would definitely rent this one again.

This was our first visit to AMI. We loved this house. It is beautiful and convenient! The ping pong and corn hole in the garage were a big bonus. We were traveling with teenagers, and they used this space everyday. The house is spotless and has all that you need for a wonderful vacation!

We loved our vacation at Seaswept. My family and I stayed there for Mothers day and had such a great time. The house is perfectly located to everything and there is a beach across the street that we walked to every day. The house is very clean and has everything you would need including a fan in one of the bedrooms. (Thank God). I cannot sleep without the noise of a fan :-). We created memories that will last a life time and we have already booked our next vacation here in October. Onceuponabeach was great to deal with and I give this house 5 stars.

We have been staying in VRBO properties for 15 years. Seaswept Mermaid is in our top THREE. The house is immaculate, has all the amenities you need for adults and kids, steps away from a beach, a short walk or golf cart ride to food and shopping, and the pool/hot tub/decks are just what you need in a Florida home. We were two families in this house and never felt crowded. You can sit on the front deck and watch the sunrise, or watch the afternoon/evening thunderstorms. You can sit on the back deck and enjoy the peace and quiet. You can easily paddle board or kayak on the ocean or canal. The amenities that they provide including ample cooking utensils, pots, pans, dishes, beach/pool towels are by far the best of any VRBO we have stayed in. The communication from Once upon a beach from booking to departure was top notch. HIGHLY recommend checking out this property. You will love it.

We traveled to AMI to have one last family vacation before dropping our son off at IMG. While I cried MANY times during the week prior to saying goodbye, WE ABSOLUTELY HAD A BLAST!!! The house was perfect for us and our three teenage boys....the pool, hot tub, paddle boards, bocce ball, bikes and the kayak provided hours of fun and so many LAUGHS for us! The location was extremely convenient--such an easy trek to the beach and dining. The beds were extremely comfy, stocked kitchen and grill made for easy meals, and modern furnishings and decor provided a lovely atmosphere to kick up our feet and feel right at home. Zero complaints about this house and truly hated when we had to leave.

The photos for this home were spot-on. Our family members loved everything this house had to offer including the spacious decks, pool/hot tub and so many games and activities that we all loved. Having the kayak and paddleboards clean and ready right there allowed many of us adults and kids to try it for the first time! House was clean and spacious and had such beautiful views. Appreciated having two refrigerators. Very walkable to the beach. Great gathering space for our special celebration. No issues with bugs this time of year near the dock. Rental company was very easy to work with. Only suggestions I would make are the stairs between the upper floor and main floor are very slippery and could use some grippers or runners; also a few more pans for those who cook a lot; child alarm in the bunk bed room like on the other deck doors. Would love to return again if we are able. Thanks for the experience!

This property is not only functional but beautiful as well. On an inlet and the older kids paddle boarded or kayaked near daily. We had dolphins show up in the inlet as well so fun to watch them play! Tons of room and hit with the kids to be able to play video games at night yet no need to be on screens during the day with so much to do. We also rented a golf cart from them which was ideal for exploring the island :). So much in walking distance. Heated pool and hot tub were a hit for the cool nights and one rainy day! Thank you for the amazing time. We will be back!
