Lisa Charest for StarFish purchased this Cottage in 1985
Why Lisa Charest for StarFish chose Pass-a-grille
This property was where I grew up! It has been annual rentals then I began updating the property and making it for vacationers! This area is paradise and it is wonderful to own a small part of an island!
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 and above all enjoy the sunset that has made St Pete Beach & Pass a Grille the 'sunset capital of FL'.

Short walk from the beach
Property is very close to the beautiful white beach. Place was kinda dingy. Bedroom was too hot as we later found out that a window unit could have been installed. If you're planning to cook, make sure to bring a sponge for the dishes and spices for your cooking as there is pretty much nothing in the house. Place is not very clean either.. If you will be spending time in the house you may want to rethink as the couch is not very comfortable either. But if you will be spending most of your day outside and eating outside but usine the place only to sleep at night then you should be just fine.
Simply letting me know there were issues all of this could have been resolved quickly. 2 Dish rags are provided for each stay and one kitchen towel- my cleaner simply forgot to add them for her stay. I could’ve had it remedied within an 15 min of her letting me know. She came during some very hot days & no other guest previously or after has ever mentioned issues about the AC? However, again I could’ve easily given her one of my extra air conditioners- Another quick fix -(however, without letting me know until the review, there is nothing that I can do) I’m sorry she didn’t find her happiness with the house I hope during her next vacation rental she simply lets the owner know about any issues/concerns so they can be remedied early on and then she can enjoy a wonderful beach vacation .
What a nice vacation.

PAG beach visit
We stayed at Starfish 9/2016 with our dogs and had a wonderful trip. Dogs enjoyed doggie beach area every morning. We were disappointed the dogs weren't allowed on the main beach, but they had a great time anyway. The bikes and paddle board were great to have available! I recommend using both! There are several outdoor spaces on the property each with a grill. There is an outdoor shower and hose for rinsing off - very nice to have to bathe dogs! The property is in a great location and we were able to walk or ride bikes everywhere we went. We even rode the bikes to Publix, which was only about 2 miles and there is a back road to avoid the current construction area. Sunsets are amazing at Paradise Grille! Merry pier is great for fishing. Really enjoyed dining at Sea Critters, Wharf, and Brass Monkey! And evening sunset sailboat excursion on Fantasea was wonderful. I would recommend this property (Starfish) for couples at most (and maybe one small child). Consider bringing a few more bath towels and/or several beach towels. Laundry can be done on property for small fee (I believe was around $1-2), but for me, there is no laundry on vacation! The beach is beautiful and water is fabulous! The beach is literally an easy walking distance to the left of property and the bay is to the right...I'm guessing 150 steps or less! Lisa has a fantastic reference guide available for area review including grocery, dining, shopping, adventures, etc. We really had everything we needed and are very grateful to Lisa for allowing us, and our doggies, to stay in her home!
