Beach House, 1 or 2 bedroom, 1bath, sleeps 2-6, wifi & bikes
Amazing Sunsets, charming house, literally steps to the sandy white beach town called Pass-a-Grille! Its a small community and a subset of Saint Pete Beach, with lovely neighbors, restaurants within walking distance, clean and very comfortable houses with updated bathrooms, kitchens and new furniture. Clean lines with lots of light, & parking for one car. Completely redone, updated houses located on Pass-a-grille Island and it is only a few small steps to beautiful pass-a-grille beach.
Palm trees abound with outside shower areas, your own 2 beach cruiser bikes for each house and tons of peace in a restful setting complete with white powder sand, soothing sunsets, shells and birds galore!
There are eight similar houses to accommodate your stay. Three sit on the second floor and five are just a few steps into the house at ground level. Most have private porches and all have 2 personal bikes each, BBQ and patios and private entrances. The furnishings are similar and brand new and the layouts are also similar.
Please send me an email with the dates your are looking and I will send you back what is available.
I provide not only the basic amenities, but also the basic home supplies that are needed at vacation rentals, (garbage bags, soap a few rolls of TP and Paper-towels to start your vacation), so that all you need is to show up with your clothes. All to aid you with comfort, convenience and affordability. In each living-room there are very comfortable clean sleeper couches easy to pull out. I provide all linens and towels including beach towels.
Have your cocktail or glass of wine in proper wine and cocktail glasses, or if alcohol is not your preference, then prepare a milkshake or smoothie in the blender. Enjoy the outdoors and relax on your own deck while enjoying the beautiful beach and the palm trees. Either inside or outside you will find peace and relaxation. All the comforts of a home away from home. Comfort for everyone, be they parents or friends, children or pets.
In the bedroom there is a queen bed in the bedroom the 2 bedroom houses have one King and one Queen bed. Fix dinner and enjoy the kitchen, with all the utensils, pots and pans, needed to fix a gourmet meal or just a casual dinner. Do not let traveling keep you from that charcoal steak and baked potato. Whether it is less formal and more casual or eating outside that is desired, you can use the place mats and dishes and glasses for outdoors or for the relaxed supper inside. For the toddlers I have a pack 'n play with sheets that you are welcome to use with your reservation.
Great host and great place
About the Owner
We are a local family and offer our beach house to people who are interested in coming to Pass-a-Grille for a vacation. We are not a hotel and enjoy sharing our place to people who will love the area like we do! I teach psychology at a local college, have worked in Human Resources for years. I am a mom we have retail stores so I do stay very busy. However, I take pride in decorating and trying to make the house perfect for you. I know how important a vacation is and really do my best to make sure you can have a great time! I have hand selected (with my daughters help in many cases) all of the items in the house and hope you enjoy the tasteful decorating and smooth layout!
Guestbook comments from the owner
This is an amazing apartment at Pass A Grille, everything is very clean and new, the beach is beautiful with great sunsets and shelling. Lots of good places to eat within walking distance! My sister and I shared it but it would also be a romantic get away for a couple. Lisa took care of our every need!

Great host and great place
It is in an excellent location and Lisa is a great host. She is quick to reapond to any request and does everything she can to make your stay great!! Definitely recommend staying here.
Nice and Cozy
We enjoyed our stay at this Pass-a-grille property. The house is sort-of multi-unit, which was fine because I think there may have been only one other couple on the property during our stay. Lisa provides so many amenities--beach toys, etc., which was nice. The house was very neat and clean, bed was comfortable, kitchen was well-equipped. My only suggestion would be an air conditioner for the bedroom, as the unit in the front room did not adequately cool the bedroom. Although I turned the temperature on the remote down to 68, the temperature on the unit never adjusted below 72. The location is perfect--nice beach, easy access, and close to many restaurants, etc. We LOVE Sea Critters! If you're a fisherman, lot's of snook running the beach at this time of year (June-July) in knee deep water. Get up early and walk the beach or fish at the end of the day.
This was the perfect little getaway house! The property is well kept, clean, and the owner thought of everything you might need. We could walk to the beach or restaurants, also ride the bikes around PAG which is the cutest little town! We didn't want to leave!!! Thank you, Lisa!! We hope to return soon!
From the very first moment we clicked on the photos for the beach house, we knew this was the romantic getaway we wanted for our honeymoon. Lisa, is so good at what she does. She truly made our stay perfect with all her little touches. We went shopping to stock up the fridge before check in and once we put groceries in fridge we took off on the cruisers (bikes). We were able to get a closer look at Pass a Grille. You see so much more than you would in a car. Our first night we sat and watched the sunset with our feet int he sand and then grilled out on the very cute patio. The next day we woke up early and hit a day full of sunshine at the beach. We sat out at a local bar and had a few drinks and watched sunset that was breath taking. Our dinner at the Hurricane restaurant was cooked perfectly and exceeded our expectations. We were so closely located to so many local attractions. We took a day or two and went to the zoo and to visit some family but were aching for the "beach" life, so we couldn't stay away long. There were soo many unique shops, restaurants, and outdoor activities that we were not able to do everything during our trip. We could not have asked for a better honeymoon. We loved it so much we decided to make it our annual vacation spot! We are coming back this October and bringing our two children for their first Florida vacation. Lisa, we thank you for great memories! ~Lucy
My husband and I just returned froms Lisa's Pass A Grille apartment. We loved it. The apartment was clean, comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed the neighborhood and the neighbors. It was so nice to be able to walk almost everywhere we went. We went to the beach every night to watch the sunset and were even treated to watching a small wedding on Friday night. We look forward to returning to the apartment again. Lisa, thanks for such a relaxing retreat.
a week of r & r
had an awesome week..it was everything lisa the owner said it would be..the sunsets were beyond what we expected...rode the beach cruisers all over pass a grille everyday, all kinds of resturants, and cute little shops to see. shell key near by was beautiful.the dolphins and manatee swam right by us about 10 feet away. the water was great even though hurricane irene was going by on the east coast. and made the water rough the last 2 days it was fun to watch the kite boarders, take advantage of the rough surf and wind. up the road is honeymoon state park, very nice beach ...also the pier in st. pete is a must..the only issue which was minor. was parking, its a little tight if you have a full size car. due to a nice little palm tree cluster in the middle of the driveway, but there is parking a half block away if needed...all in all it was great we will return. lisa was a great host.

From the Owner
“Breakfast nooks. like the Seahorse Restaurant, are enticing and quaint and only blocks away. Cute shops and boutiques run along 8th Ave, one of the smallest shopping streets in the US, and are made for strolling along. Pass a Grille Beach is mostly a residential and very quiet beach. It is perfect for a life made for walking, rollerblading, cycling or swimming. The beach house is only a few steps from our beach trolley stop and the trolly can take you to wherever you want to go.. or you can just stay, enjoy the Sea Spray, the sea grapes and the local restaurants as they entice all who come to this area. Enjoy the local craftsman shop, Nancy Markoe Gallery, for local pottery or jewelry to take home. Above all enjoy the sunset and the sunrise as on a peninsula water is all around to reflect the suns rays and shine with warmth on each glorious day.”
