Overview

About the property

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, friends, or children.

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.

About Lisa

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!

Lisa purchased this house in 1970

Why Lisa chose St Pete Beach

This property has been our family for a long time. In 2013 we began updating the property! This area is paradise and it is wonderful to own a small part of an island!

What makes this house unique

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 trolley 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. 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.

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!

Perfect vacation property

  • 5 of 5

I very much enjoyed my stay! The property is literally across the street from the beach. The house itself is very livable. I love the master bedroom the most....surrounded by windows...just like a Florida sunroom.

It was as advertised

  • 4 of 5

Perfect spot , steps away from the beach . Bedroom is very small and the one side is hard to get in and out of bed as it is very close to the wall . Other than that it was a great place to stay .

Amazing house in an amazing environment

  • 5 of 5

So thrilled with our choice for a vacation home! Pass-a-Grille is a fantastic quiet beach community and it was a perfect house. We loved using the bikes, we walked on the beach everyday and just had the most wonderful vacation! Thank you so much Lisa for the fantastic home away from home.

Lovely beach cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We would love to come back to this same spot next year. The fleas are a bit of a problem. Fortunately the dogs are on flea control, but I still see them everywhere.

Owner's Response: After the guest departed (because I was not notified of an issue while she was staying at the house) I found an area outside ofthe property where there was some sort of infestation (no idea why). I had Terminex treat the area and they explained that when her dog walked by it he picked up the fleas-they were never in the house nor on the property - unfortunately it was just took a bit to research where the problem was coming from.. The area has been cleared and cleaned and treated by Terminex and there is no longer an issue. No fleas at all were found in the house however I had the house treated anyway just to be sure. Thanks for your review- I have always tried to accommodate pets in the past making sure they are on comfortis or trifexus with vet documentation however due to this issue we will will no longer be accepting pets in the future. I can assure everyone the problem was figured out and resolved. Thanks again and Hope you have a wonderful 2017.
