** If you would like to have your pool heated, we kindly ask that you please contact AMV at least 10 days prior to your arrival so that it ensures us ample time to fulfill your request. We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools and pool equipment are closely monitored by the pool company for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with- most of the systems are locked for this reason. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs (some properties have a spa, some have a hot tub). Generally speaking, our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, please be aware that even in Central Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down into the 30's for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to draw down to in the 70's and a pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool back to 82, which may take several days depending on the severity of the cold spell. Ultimately, these situations are beyond our control. Other issues such as severe weather conditions, equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes or other items do happen for time to time. Please be aware that AMV cannot issue refunds during your stay based on acts of God. However, please know that in the rare event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, AMV will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we certainly want you to enjoy your heated pool and Florida sunshine to the fullest extent possible! Anna Maria Vacations thanks you in advance for your understanding on this issue.

Absolutely Perfect! 2020-10-08

By: Kim S. Trip Date: 2020-09-14
Loved this home. Had everything we needed for a weeks stay. Large enough that we could all spread out, have our own bathroom, rest and relax. The pool and outdoor kitchen were amazing. Why would you use the elevator? To get your heavy suitcase from the entry in the garage up to the third floor.. My grandsons lived in the pool. Beds were super comfy. Plenty of towels (even beach towels) and linens. Nice laundry room that was used non-stop. Every amenity needed in the kitchen. The separate ice-machine was awesome. Location was a 10 minute walk to the famous Rod and Reel Piet where we fished every night. Five minute walk to the beach. We rented golf carts and never used our car. Only recommendation would be to have a sink in the outdoor kitchen and a half bath on the lower level. You can’t go wrong renting this beautiful home. -- Kim, thank you for your very kind words about Once Upon A Tide. We are thrilled that you found it comfortable and your family enjoyed the home so much during your stay. I will be sure to pass along your suggestions to the owners for their consideration. We hope that you and your family come visit us again soon!

Family Vacation 2020-08-11

By: Joyce Briczinski Trip Date: 2020-07-18
Enjoyed the whole property.. from the large house that gave everyone a space of their own if they so desired it or the large outdoor space outside the pool where everyone could gather. It provided all the beach chairs, toys anyone could ask for. Our Family Enjoyed our stay here and would come back! -- Thank you for the 5 star review, Joyce! We are so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Once Upon A Tide and the large outdoor space around the pool! We hope to welcome you back as guests of Anna Maria Vacations in the future!

Once Upon A Tide! 2020-08-03

By: Virginia Craig Trip Date: 2020-06-27
This was our second stay at Once Upon a Tide with the first time being so grand we wanted to stay for two weeks this year. The house is absolutely gorgeous - the pictures do not do it justice. We never ate out the entire two weeks - the kitchen had everything we needed to make wonderful meals for our family of 6. We have two small grandchildren and the beach cart/chairs/umbrella were perfect. The pool area is like a spa retreat and the kids couldn't get enough of it. The location cannot be beat with just a few feet away from the gorgeous white sand and the pier. The house was so clean and well taken care of. Best vacation we have ever had and we can't wait to return. -- Virginia, we are so thrilled to hear that you and your family enjoyed your second stay at Once Upon a Tide! We are happy that everyone was able to enjoy all the amenities this home has to offer our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back to AMI for more BEST vacations EVER! ==

Fabulous even in the rain! 2019-09-11

By: Jo Anderson Trip Date: 2019-08-10
This was our fourth visit to Anna Maria and we were very particular on location. Once Upon A Tide did not disappoint. Perfect for the beach. The villa was lovely and one of the nicest we have stayed in on the island, with a great kitchen and everything we needed for the week. Our only gripe was the beach equipment was rather tired and the bikes a bit shabby. When I emailed the Property Managers about the bikes being broken they were very quick to come and repair although one of them was definitely past the repair stage! For the cost of the villa we would have definitely expected newer equipment. Apart from the property was superb and even 5 days of rain did not dampen our relaxing holiday! -- Jo, thank you so much for taking the time to write us a 5 star review! Since your departure we have replaced the beach chairs and purchased 4 new bikes for the home! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Once Upon A Tide and that the home did not disappoint! We are glad that our Service Team was able to help as quickly as possible. Please let us know when you are ready to book with us again, we would love to welcome you back to AMI as our guest in the future!

Once upon a Tide Storybook Vacation 2019-07-10

By: Mike and Toni Durham Trip Date: 2019-06-15
What an amazing vacation story created at Once upon a Tide rental home. There were six adults and one 15 month old baby. We choose the home, because we knew the baby would be at the house with naps and early bedtime. It turned out to be amazing with all the amenities. I cooked breakfast every morning and we grilled one evening for dinner. It was so much fun with the well equipped kitchen. The pool and outdoor kitchen area was so enjoyable everyday. I broke my foot two weeks before vacation, so the elevator was the best thing ever for me. I was able to hold the baby and ride up to the third floor to put her to bed. We rented a golf cart and the parking was spacious. We loved the location, and went to see the sunset every night. The ice maker was awesome! We will highly recommend this home to everyone. -- Thank you for the wonderful review, Mike and Toni! We are thrilled to hear about your amazing stay at Once Upon A Tide! We're so glad that you enjoyed the amenities such as the fully equipped kitchen, the private pool, the elevator, and the great location! We would love to have you back for another storybook vacation!!

Happily Ever After with Once Upon a Tide 2018-12-04

By: Blanca and Geoff Little Trip Date: 2018-07-28
We loved our week at Once Upon A Tide. The house is luxurious and clean, outfitted with modern appliances and all the recreational equipment you would hope to find on a beach vacation. Our group particularly enjoyed the ping-pong table and the fully-equipped barbecue area next to the pool. Inside there are ample common spaces for group gatherings and lots of nooks and crannies to get away from everyone else. The kitchen and bathrooms were well-stocked, and the concierge service responded promptly when called to replenish supplies. The location on a residential street at the far end of the island puts you near enough to restaurants and stores you want to visit but away from the congestion of a commercial throughway. We recommend Once Upon A Tide without reservation. --
Hi Blanca and Geoff Little,
Thank you for the review of Once Upon A Tide! We're so glad you enjoyed the home along with the amenities such as the ping-pong table. We're happy it was roomy enough for everyone and that you enjoyed the location being near local restaurants and stores. Thank you for staying with us, we hope to have you back soon!

Perfect Oasis 2017-06-21

By: Emily Trip Date: 2017-06-10
As we drove up to Once Upon a Tide my eyes lit up as I was dazzled by the exquisite setting. A large balcony was calling our names and made me realize this was going to be the perfect tranquil escape. The home is situated just a short block and a half walk from the lovely white sands of Anna Maria Island. Each day we walked the beach and watched the sunrise and in the evening returned to enjoy the colorful sunsets. The home is fully equipped from a simple sand pail to bicycles to cruise to the local restaurants. Heading to those restaurants is quite easy when residing at Once Upon a Tide. Every place is nearby and the island makes all who journey, there feel welcome. If you are not one to want to venture far from home, Once Upon a Tide has its own pool and a perfect area to read, play, and escape. I highly recommend this home for your next Florida get away! --
Hello Emily,
We are excited to hear that Once Upon A Tide was everything you expected it to be! We would love to have you stay with us again for your next island getaway.

Paradise! Lifetime memories for our family! 2017-05-24

By: Lori Rademacher Trip Date: 2017-05-06
This home is absolutely beautiful, tranquil, decorated to the hilt! Our family agree that its our all-time favorite vacation! The kitchen is stocked and the facilities are luxurious and in fantastic shape, the beds are absolutely the most comfortable we have ever had, the linen service is outstanding. The pool and outside living space is the best on the island as far as we can see and we used it all of the time. The beach is steps away and so is the pier where we went every evening to watch the sunset. We were happily surprised to find that they furnished coolers, chairs, bikes, and everything you needed for the beach! The elevator is so convenient and awesome as this is a big place. We would recommend it to anyone. We never had to call for any help and the AMV company has a special app that makes check in and check out a snap - so cool. This was worry free - absolutely beautiful - relaxing and allowed us to make lifetime memories! Cannot say enough about our experience! --
Hello Lori,
Thank you so much for sharing your amazing experience at Once Upon A Tide. We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed your vacation and all of the wonderful amenities the home has to offer. Please let us know if you are coming back to the island, we would love to have you stay with us again!

An amazing house 2016-06-28

By: Tweedie Family Trip Date: 2016-05-07
This is our first time renting a house on Anna Maria Island. We choose Once Upon A Tide from a friend's recommendation. It is in a great location, quite street and only a two minute walk to the beach. The house has a beach wagon, comfortable beach chairs, umbrella and beach toys. We loved riding the bikes down to the pier for ice-cream. Riding the bikes around the island was one of our favorite activities! The outdoor living area is fantastic. The private pool provided an ideal location for relaxation and it also provided shade for those of us who had enough sun! It is a great place to cookout with the large grill and warming tray and it was great to have a refrigerator outside. The kitchen is a dream!! It has everything you need and more! The house is beautifully decorated and well maintained. To top it all off, the owner of the house was above and beyond when it came to accommodations and making sure we had the best family vacation. We were very impressed!! We will definitely be back next year! The Tweedy Family --- Thank you for letting us know about your stay with us at Once Upon A Tide. This really is a wonderful home in a great location! We are happy to hear that your stay was an enjoyable one and that the home provided you with all the necessary amenities. Please don't hesitate to contact us about your next years vacation plans, we are looking forward to hearing back from you!

Great location for morning & evening 2016-06-11

By: Ethan Minkel Trip Date: 2016-05-22
You are 2 blocks away from some of the best sunrises you will ever see, and 1 block away from the gulf beach that is immaculate, and shows off the the sunset. Home is beautifully decorated, and is easy to adjust to....Kitchen is awesome, and additional living area down by the pool was wonderful, especially with TV. Towels a plenty..only suggestion would be to have more cooking essentials: spices, oils..etc.. ___
