About Lydia M Runkel or Kim Henson

We purchased this property a little over three years ago. Lydia is a retired educator from Michigan and Kim is a fishing captain who is a fifth native Floridian. We both love fishing, the beach, yard work, our dog, and believe in a life of service to others.

Lydia M Runkel or Kim Henson purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Lydia M Runkel or Kim Henson chose Pass-a-grille

This property is so special because it is in such a quiet neighborhood in a part of old florida.Pass A Grille is one of the oldest coastal communities in the state. Our love of fishing drew us to this property. This home was built in 1924 and appears to have been an old fishing shanty. We love this property as it is a place of healing and love. We love sharing it with others and welcoming people to our place of heaven.

What makes this apartment unique

We have updated the apt with a new kitchen, bath, shower flat screen tvs. While visiting you are welcome to ride bikes and explore our island, take a walk on the beach, do your laundry, grill on the patio gas grill, and just let go....We fell in love with this property because we feel like we are on vacation while we are working...doing what we love.

great place to have a quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at La Surfin Parrot. Kim and Lydia are great. The place was very clean. Just a half block from the beach. Quiet neighborhood.

Sunsets were great on the beach every night.

Within walking distance of several places to shop, eat and drink.

We booked for next year before we left.

A great little place!

  • 5 of 5

So glad we chose to stay at La Surfin Parrot. Great area just a short block walk to the beach. The downstairs unit that we stayed in was perfect for us. Very comfy bed. Nicely furnished. Very clean. Felt like a bit of old Florida, safe quiet area. Lydia and Kim were very welcoming and great to talk with. This place will always be on our mind the next time we visit and certainly hope it's available. 100% satisfied. Great place.

If you want a friendly, clean and warm rental this is the place! Lydia and Kim go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need or want. Because of it's location it is within walking distance of anything you need, yet quiet and relaxing. We haven't had a vacation in years. We had such a good time that we rebooked for next year. The people in the area are very friendly. Highly recommend this rental !!!!!
