Paradise Found !
Paradise Found !
What a find this is - we almost don't want to write about how absolutely wonderful this Beach House in Pass a Grille is - in case it becomes too busy!! However it all has to be said. We were so impressed with it - the comfort - the décor - the lovely feel of the place - the closeness of that awesome beach - 2 mins ! You can walk for miles and miles on that beach. It doesn't get any better than that. And so many other amenities. Lovely restaurants and shops. It really is a gem. All the information in the guidebook to the area that Lisa has compiled is amazing. We will definitely return - as soon as we can ! For a much longer stay next time. Thank You Lisa for creating such a beautiful corner of the world. We absolutely and definitely will return. Ian and Diane.

I was looking for a vintage cottage away from the packed hotels and crowds, and this definitely was it. It's an older (updated) property, like most of the houses in PAG, but that's the point. I chose to not rent a car and got where I needed to go via the bike provided and the St. Pete Beach trolley. There are several good restaurants to chose from under a mile away from this cottage. There's a great deli, a 7-11, and beach access, all of which are very close. I had poured over the reviews of many properties and I'm glad I went with Lisa's rental. It was as advertised. I had breakfast at The Seahorse every morning (a nice local favorite where they treat you as if they've known you for years), enjoyed The Hurricane, and spent many hours swimming in the ocean because it's that close. I even got a haircut at the salon downtown on 8th Ave. Pass A Grille is truly quaint, and if you're looking for clean, charming, happy, cozy, and laid back, this is the place for you. The unit is perfect for couples or singles.

It was perfect!
It was perfect!
My wife and I spent the month of March here and we couldn't have been more pleased with the place. Everything was as described and better. We travel often and get fussy if there aren't shelves in the bathroom, quality kitchen ware, a comfortable bed, good bedding and towels, and a clean shower curtain. You can put a check mark beside all of these. Lisa, the owner, has put a lot of thought into this place. As for the location, it's ideal. Being in a dead end ally you miss the beach and road noise. Yet if you walk slowly you'll be on the beach in three minutes. We'll rent again without hesitation. D & D

My husband and I went for our 9th anniversary weekend. It was great, just enough room for us, loved the bikes and the house was comfy and cozy as well!!! I would recommend this to a younger or older couple for any length of time stay. If coming with kids they should be older because the space is tight for little ones. If 55+ and not in great health this is not the place because you have to climb steep steps to get to the house. The couch does pull out to a bed so it would comfortably sleep four people.

We stayed here for the week and loved every minute of the stay. The apt is just like it is picturesd; it is small, but very nice and clean and with everything you need for a beach stay! Rode bikes (included) around the area very comfortably, using the back alleyways and sidewalks. Walked everywhere, too, including the short block to the beach. Seafood (the Hurricane) was great, beach is clean and so pretty with a great sunset each night! You feel like a native after a day or so, it is a very relaxing/old beach type area with tourists and full-time residents in the area.

Great Option rather than a hotel room
Great Option rather than a hotel room
I made the mistake of booking a trip to Tampa during the GOP Convention. Hotel rooms were either very expensive or on the low end of the scale. I found this great spot for two nights. Clean, well furnished, and comfortable. Lisa was great to work with. Coffee and many other essentials were already there. Great area of St. Pete. Walk to dinner and beach.

Four of us went to St Pete and this apartment was absolutely perfect for what we needed. The location is perfect and just steps away from the beach. It is in walking distance to shops, restaurants and coffee :). You could walk the beach half a mile in either direction and find something to do. Lisa is amazing. She was so easy to contact and helped us anytime we needed it. She gave us tips on where to go, what to do, where to eat. She offered for us to move to another house if we got stranded due to Hurricane Isaac. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and better owner to work with. My husband and I have already decided to stay in one of her rentals for our anniversary next year.

Adorable Beach Cottage with PERFECT location!!
Adorable Beach Cottage with PERFECT location!!
Cottage was cute, clean and had everything we needed for our week-long adventure! We explored Pass-a-Grille on the beach cruisers (provided), kept cool under an umbrella (provided) while fishing, and lounged on the beautiful beach with towels that were provided! The unit including all of the essentials was important to us since we flew in stand-by from AZ and used carry-on luggage only! The washer/dryer was pretty handy, too. We didn't have to pack much at all! Our biggest challenge each morning was which direction to walk at the end of the driveway -- one minute east and we are at our fave fishing spot, one minute west and we are at the beach - decisions, decisions!! Used the rental car only once to go to St. Petersburg museums; otherwise, you can walk to Merry Pier, restaurants (try the grouper sandwich at Hurricane's!), beach, park, church, convenience store, deli - just about anything you need is a short walk away. Lisa has done an amazing job decorating this unit and is a pleasure to rent from! Very attentive, great communication and so friendly - we will DEFINITELY be back to stay in this Pass-a-Grille charmer!

About the owner: Greetings! I grew up on Pass-a-Grille but I now live in downtown St. Petersburg where my daughter goes to school. I work at the local college and teach Psychology. I compete in triathlons (swimming, running and bicycling) and have completed 4 Ironman races. We have two dogs (poodle and a golden retriever) and try to live simply by enjoying all the wonderful activities in our area such as the Dali museum, Ft De Soto- rated 1 beach in the world, bicycling on our 80 mile bike path, and windsurfing. Our next adventure is to learn to Stand-up-Paddle a popular activity in our area. I lived for awhile in NYC, CT (Fairfield county) and NY (Westchester County) during graduate school and for ten years I lived in the Northeast until I returned home.
Why the Owner Chose St. Pete Beach:
I love this beach house, & I love this apartment. I personally redid most of the place myself. We lived there for a while as it is such a wonderful area, however daily demands called me away from the beach so I chose to make life easier and move closer to my daughters school. The beach house is within driving distance to my home, its easy to get to from the airport and an easy day trip to adventures in downtown St Pete, Tampa or Orlando. The best part of this beach house though is the peace that it brings to those who live there, the shelling, walking on the beach or just listening to nature. I look forward to moving back in a few years but for now I invite you to live in this beautiful setting and enjoy the comfort of Pass A Grille Beach. Even if you only stay for a week you will leave with sunsets on your mind and the horizon and open air in you heart. Enjoy!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
