About Lisa M Charest

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.

Lisa M Charest purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Lisa M Charest chose Pass-a-grille

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!

What makes this cottage unique

Nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and the Tampa Bay, Pass-a -Grille Beach is a gem with water and white sand beach everywhere in an underdeveloped little island. There are ten restaurants that are enticing, yummy and only a few blocks away. Cute shops and boutiques run along 8th Ave, the smallest downtown in the US which is perfect for strolling. Pass a Grille Beach is mostly a residential beach- It is perfect for a life made for walking, relaxing, 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 water, the sea grapes and the local restaurants as they entice all who come to this area. Above all enjoy the sunset that has made Pass a Grille/St Pete Beach the 'sunset capital of FL the water is all around to reflect the suns rays and shine with warmth on each glorious day.

Cute beach house on best beach ever

  • 5 of 5

Pass-a-grille has always been my fave Florida beach and our stay at Lisa's Sea Breeze was perfect. The house is on the end of the beach that I prefer and is just the right size for 2-3 people. My daughter and I had gone down to reminisce and a friend came down from Tampa and stayed one night. We feasted a couple of times at the wonderful Seahorse restaurant and shopped Shaner's Market for an in-beach house feast. We were only there three days so we had to pick our overall favorites, but there are other great restaurants as well. Roaming around Ft Desoto beach and taking the ferry to Shell Island rounded out our excursions. Also, the best frozen Pina Colada in the world can be found at the Don Cesar. We enjoyed ours near one of their fire pits since it was a bit colder out than usual. Our visit back to PAG was great and it was so nice to head home to the Sea Breeze after our beach activities!

pass a grille in october-Lisa M Charest property

  • 5 of 5

Quaint little beach town of pass a grille was so charming, as was the beach house. Perfect get away for our anniversary. We parked the car and walked or biked everywhere. Steps from the beach, we practically had the beach to ourselves. Comfortable clean quiet rental supplied all we needed, such as linens, dishes, and even coffee, as well as beach chairs & bikes. Quiet peaceful paradise. Excellent experience as a first time VRBO renter and Lisa couldn't have been more helpful or easier to work with. highly recommend!

Great time!

Our one bedroom apartment was perfect for my wife and myself, a short walk to Sea Critters restaurant and the beach. Construction on Pass a Grille Way was a real pain, but couldn't be helped.

Quaint, laid-back beach community; Lovely dog-friendly bungalow

  • 5 of 5

My husband I really enjoyed our first visit to Pass-A-Grille and our stay at SeaBreeze. Lisa, the owner, was great to work with and very prompt with any questions prior to our arrival and also gave us great suggestions of things to do and places to go before and during our stay. The bungalow was only a few steps from the beach---making it easy to set-up for all day and walk back and forth whenever necessary. It very nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. A nice comfy, cozy place for two! Highly recommended!
