About Nikki & Mike Kaleta - Once Upon A Beach
From the property managers: As frequent visitors to Anna Maria Island, we quickly fell in love with the small town feel of this beach island paradise. We relocated here for the purpose of being able to enjoy this gem full time and inspire others to visit as well. It is our utmost goal to make every one of our guests instantly feel at home as a 'true local' in one of our unique, pristine, meticulously designed and luxurious accommodations. From one bedroom bungalows to a premier private beachside oasis to sprawling multi-story single family homes. We take great pride in ensuring our homes are maintained with the highest standards in quality and care. We know planning a vacation can be stressful so we are dedicated to providing a personalized and stress free rental experience from booking to departure for all of our guests. As a small boutique short term vacation rental company, our guests experiences are everything and we look forward to helping you write the first chapter of your vacation story with us and welcome you back for years and years to come.
Nikki & Mike Kaleta - Once Upon A Beach purchased this house in 2015
Why Nikki & Mike Kaleta - Once Upon A Beach chose Anna Maria
Sea Life Happy's location, larger size and stunning finishes made the decision to purchase easy. Located in the coveted North End section of the island, is just a short walk to the beaches, restaurants, shopping, the Anna Maria Pier, Rod & Reel restaurant and all the other amenities that this wonderful spot has to offer.
What makes this house unique
From the owners: Our story started with our first vacation home, Surf’s Up! It was our little Florida dream come true. After years of searching for the right warm weather spot we discovered Anna Maria Island, a true “Old Florida” town with fantastic beaches, incredibly friendly people, great restaurants and shopping, and the type of ambiance we had long been trying to find. Now with our friends and family visiting often with us, Surf's Up became too small and we were excited to purchase Sea Life Happy that can fit everyone under one roof. Sea Life Happy is newly renovated!!! The owners have lovingly renovated the exterior with the goal of making it one of the best backyards to enjoy in Anna Maria. Adding a tropical secluded paradise in the backyard, complete with a large Cabana, plush seating area, outdoor bar and pool area that is fun for entertaining or simply relaxing. Their goal is not just to provide a rental spot for you, but rather a home away from home that you’ll want to come back to year after year. They find nothing to be better than spending a day relaxing or walking on Anna Maria’s pristine, white beaches and then retreating to the porch area or the pool, soaking in the sun, enjoying the casual company of family and friends, followed by a short stroll to take in one of the gulf’s spectacular, breath-taking Gulf sunsets. Life doesn’t get any better than that!
