St. Pete Beach house description
Between Pass-a-Grille Beach and Fort De Soto Park that features sunbathing, swimming, shelling, kayaking with the dolphins, picnics, kite flying, ship-gazing, this is a most-idyllic area. Add to that the museums, art galleries, parks, and yacht basins of St. Petersburg (15 minutes), and the Opera and shopping of Sarasota...perfection!
Then come home to courtyard breezes, screened pool, and fenced backyard!
This beautiful private home is located on peaceful, residential Vina del Mar key, just over the picturesque bridge from historic Pass-a-Grille. The key is narrow, two blocks wide at the most. It provides water views and all the sounds of the gulf and the intercoastal waterway. Our home is in the center of the key, facing a quiet shady park that includes a fenced playground, basketball courts, and tennis courts. Stroll with your morning coffee for ten minutes and you will be among the dunes of beautiful Pass-a-Grille Beach, facing the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Walk the beach, do some shelling, buy a paper, pick up excellent meat, fish and wine at Shaner’s market at the end of the bridge, and head back to your own private oasis.
At home the glass wall between the living room and the lanai rolls back to let the outdoors in. The aqua pool and screened lanai, surrounded by greenery, become a part of the great room. The spacious house interior has been recently redecorated, and features floors of polished hardwood and tile. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances including refrigerator with ice maker, glass top stove, microwave, dishwasher, and disposal. The home features ceiling fans and central air conditioning. There is weekly pool service, lawn service as necessary, and a sprinkler system. The master bedroom with attached bathroom w/shower has a queen-sized bed and large walk in closet. The second bedroom is equipped with two twin beds. The third bedroom also is equipped with two twin beds as well as a computer desk serviced by High Speed Internet. All linens and furnishings in the house are new. The main bathroom opens onto the pool, and provides excellent changing space for guests and wet swimmers. The pool is equipped with a heater which can be used for an extra charge. The tile floored bonus room, adjacent to the pool, provides space for hobbies and indoor play. Next to it is the laundry room.
While restaurants, beaches, and shopping are just a few minutes walk from home, the charming trolley is available for further exploration of St. Pete Beach. By car, Fort De Soto Beach - consistently named the most beautiful beach in America - is a ten-minute drive. Tampa International Airport is 20 minutes, Busch gardens 40 minutes, and Orlando’s Disney World is an easy 90 minutes away by Interstate. Spring training camps abound, the New York Yankees are in Tampa 20 minutes away. Pass-a-Grille is an historically protected area harkening back to the 1920’s. Enjoy its elegant homes and appreciate the height restrictions due to its historic status - no new buildings over 3 stories high! Fishing is free at the Pass-a-Grille pier, and local fishing and sailing charter services abound. All of this makes it a most unique and delightful Florida experience - you’ll love it!

My family was fortunate to connect with the owners of this home and rent it during our yearly vacation to Florida. The description of this place is spot on. It is very clean and in tip top shape. Having a pool just outside the living room was the perfect way to keep the kids off the computer and away from the tv. The owners are fantastic people to deal with also. Communication with them never left me with any questions or confusion. Beautiful, quiet, clean neighborhood. 10 minute walk to beach or 1 minute drive with 2 fresh seafood markets within blocks also. We can't wait to return!

What a great location! We had a wonderful time in this house and neighborhood. The park across the street is great for dog-walking or tennis, Passe-a-Grille is charming, and there are good restaurants within walking distance. The house is plain and practical - just what you need when you're vacationing with either children or pets. The area around the pool is perfect no matter what the weather. The pool is smartly covered so that you can always have a bit of shade. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. We hope to enjoy this great house again. Thank you so much for allowing us to use your home.
