St. Pete Beach cottage description

Relax and get lost in yourself by lounging in the hammock on the front deck of this whimsical Key West style waterfront bungalow, situated in the heart of Pass-a-grille's historic district.

The comfortable cottage and cozy loft has everything you could possibly need for your vacation. Just bring a toothbrush!
NOTE: We've done it again! Look for our 'Sunset Charmer' and Mini Sunset Charmer coming in the fall of 2014! We are making it every bit as wonderful as the 'Waterfront Charmer'. More to come.


Pass-a-grille is a charming Florida Community of days past. We are perfectly located in the heart of Pass-a-grille, right next to 8th Ave. which is the 'hub' of this quiet spot.

We take great care to make sure you have all the comforts needed to make a vacation a memorable experience. We're fortunate enough to have acquired many repeat guests, we're starting to feel like a huge extended family!

Continually being updated, the cottage has 2 decks - one that looks at Boca Ciega Bay and a second intimate, secluded, covered porch between home and the garage (loft). A privacy fence surrounds the home. A red aluminum roof makes the cottage quickly identifiable! Original wood floors, a totally remodeled and updated kitchen, romantic fireplace, ceiling fans, central air, cabana striped awnings, bright tropical artwork and furnishings complete the charm of old Florida living with contemporary amenities. This is our personal guest house for our friends and family when they come visit, so we make sure it never starts looking 'tired'.

Our improvement for 2012 was a complete kitchen remodel. The 2013 improvement was adding Hardie Board siding and a color change! Our 2014
project is adding another old 2/2 Pass-a-grille bungalow and 1bdr apartment to the
business. We're havin some fun now!!

Because we are one of the original Pass-a-grille Cottages we have a bit of a rambling, add-on, footprint. The cottage sleeps 5, 1 queen, 1 full, 1 twin. It is 2 bdroom/2 bath and a small Florida room, with 1 twin bed, which can be closed off from the rest of the cottage. Additionally, the loft sleeps 4. It is an upstairs/downstairs with kitchenette configuration. 2 twins on top level, 1 full bed on bottom floor.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: Tom and I love to travel, our preferred way to lodge is at VRBO properties. We still like B &B's, Inns and nice hotels! For some reason it always seems like we land on an island. We have 2 big labs that we adore. Empty nesters with 4 adult children living from NYC to LA. AND 3 grandchildren who we can't get enough of!! Tom is considering retirement and I just love a new project!

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Pete Beach:
                  Pass-a-grille is a step back in time, hidden in a bustling area. It is a true old school neighborhood.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  So incredibly close to the beach! We can watch the happenings at the Merry Pier across the street, watch the dolphin, birds and fishermen from our lifeguard chairs on the front deck. Pass-a-grille is the greatest place to walk your dogs or just to take a walk. After the beach gets boring the sights along the sidewalk are entertaining; old homes, renovated homes and new ones. We are right next to 8th Ave, the historic street, with fun beachy shopping, not the typical tourist stuff. Action, but not too much. Nice place to relax and slow the pace. When you want action, go north of the Don Cesar Hotel and the action begins!!
