About Owner

We are Mike & Nikki Kaleta with Once Upon A Beach Vacation Rentals & Property Management, full-time island residents, and a husband and wife team who solely own and operate our boutique luxury vacation rental agency on Anna Maria Island, Florida. We currently manage 30+ throughout the island on behalf of our owners. We relocated here in 2016 after we fell in love with the small town feel of this beach island paradise and built our small business from the ground up with the passion to share this beloved island with others. 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.

"This was our second time staying at Island Girl. We love it! The management company has changed for the home, which is a big plus, as the new company was responsive and very easy to work with. The house is bright and spacious; nicely furnished with a welcoming feel. It has everything you need beach towels, beach wagon, beach chairs, umbrellas, a cooler, and even floats & sand toys for the kids. We've stayed in a lot of VRBO's, but this one has it all... plus there's bikes in the garage! There's a propane grill @ the pool, with an extra tank so you won't run out, a nice touch. The kitchen is well stocked too, with both a Keurig and a regular drip coffee maker. The kitchen and baths are modern and clean, and the king bed is super comfortable. The location is perfect, in a nice neighborhood away from traffic/noise, but still close to town shops & restaurants. The beach is a block away, a 3-minute walk. The free trolley stop is just a block away, too, we took it to Manatee Beach and the Pine Ave shops and the city pier. We rode the bikes to The Creamery for ice cream and shopped for Tshirts and said Hi to the parrots at the Sun and Surf! There's also a cute little park across the street from the house with a lake where you can watch the sunrise. The Best part of the house is the pool area, it's beautiful! Just very private and surrounded by palms it felt like we were on our own Caribbean island! Comfy lounge chairs, and there's a hammock under the trees, the best reading spot! We'd go to the beach in the morning and come back home to the pool in the afternoon...It's a perfect place to relax and recharge. When the pool is lit up at night it's magical! We'd walk or ride the bikes back to the beach in the evening to watch the amazing sunsets... gorgeous! Even though it's a duplex, the way it's laid out, it feels like a separate house. We had a wonderful vacation, and we'll definitely come back to Island Girl!"
