About the property

Spectacular Gulf And Beach Views From Three Balconies

Park your flip flops and beach gear in the welcoming foyer, venture upstairs and slip into some comfortable furniture while drenching in exclusive resort like decor punctuated by cheerful coastal colors. Two bedrooms and two baths, located on separate floors, afford a sense of quiet privacy for sharing the house with children or guests. Beautiful Brazilian Cherry wood floors in the living areas and bedrooms are complemented by ceramic tile in the kitchen, bathroom and foyer.

High end kitchen appliances will make it a breeze to prepare a simple snack or a gourmet meal in style. This brand new kitchen is fully outfitted with glassware, dishes, cooking vessels and creative kitchen tools.

The first floor bedroom is large and cheerful with a walk in closet, a queen size bed with pillow top mattress and adjacent bathroom. The incredible master suite, sporting a king size bed with pillow top mattress, is on the top floor of the house and features bay to gulf views from two balconies. Down the hallway, find a commodious dressing room/master closet on your way to a well appointed Master Bath featuring dual sinks, tub and massive tiled cylindrical shower. Enjoy the sunset from the Master Bedroom balcony while sipping your favorite cold drink ensconced in tall Island Time tropical chairs offering a spectacular, unimpeded view. Late at night, revel in the silence and privacy afforded by the insulated glass windows or open up the doorwall and listen to the gently lapping waves.

The foyer is designed to be your one stop beach access point: Beach towels, totes, sunscreen and beach chairs are situated so that you can keep all of your beach essentials within easy reach on your way out the door to the beach. Your car is easily accessible from the rear of the foyer nestled in a one car garage with automatic door opener.

It’s difficult to imagine a better home to stay in while enjoying all that the area has to offer and will make your stay one to remember.


Nicknamed the “Flip Flop Beach House”; you can exist quite nicely in this wonderful historic beach community with only flip flops and shorts. Park your flip flops on any one of 3 spacious balconies or front patio area and enjoy an unequalled panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico.

Come to the Flip Flop Beach house to while away your time relaxing and enjoying life in the slow lane of the Pass-a-Grille National Historic District. Paddle boarding, shelling, beach walking, basketball courts, tennis courts, bike riding, dining, shopping, fishing, shuttle to Shell Key, and much more are all within comfortable flip flop range. On weekends, catch the Island Troubadour style music and art fair action on the beachfront patio directly across the street (weather permitting). Paradise Grille shares the patio and features good beach food and provides a great spot from which to enjoy the spectacular sunsets with like minded sun worshippers. Flip flop a few more feet directly onto Pass-a-Grille Beach! Named one of the top beaches in the USA, The Beach received a 2013 Travelers Choice Award. Or, flip flop 100 steps over from your front door to the famous “Hurricane” restaurant for fine food and soothing libations.

Looking for a day trip? Flip flop onto the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) bus and explore all of the Gulf Beaches. Take 20 or so flip flop steps from your front door to the Trolley stop and go all the way to Clearwater with access to hundreds of shops and restaurants along this route.

Use your Flip Flop abode as a convenient home base for a “Tour de Florida”. You’re just 2 hours to Orlando, a little over 4 hours to Miami, and 40 minutes to Tampa International Airport. In a mere 10 minutes, you can access I 275 via Pinellas Bayway at the North end of Pass a Grille.

When you tire of all your flip flopping, settle down into a comfy chair and enjoy a Blu-ray disc or Brighthouse Cable selection on the 42” LCD TV. Or curl up on the couch with your favorite laptop or tablet and wirelessly surf the web. Just before you retire for the evening, catch the late show on HDTV in the Master Bedroom.

Why Marty chose Pass-a-grille

We have a lengthy relationship with the St. Pete/Pass-a-Grille area. After renting numerous vacation residences ourselves we dreamed of purchasing our own home.

What makes this house unique

This is truly a unique home in a unique location. We love the nearby Hurricane restaurant, but the view from our balconies is just as good!

Funtime in the sunshine

  • 5 of 5

Such a welcoming and relaxing house! This was our first time staying at The FlipFlop house and it was Wonderful! The furnishings were lovely, comfy beds, sofas, plenty of space for all 5 of us and the upstairs chaise lounges facing The gulf...amazing! Beautiful, modern and very well equipped kitchen, anything you might need for a day at the beach which was just across the road and even an elevator to carry our luggage to the upstairs bedrooms! We loved the 3 balconies too and we were able to see both the sun rise from one and set from the others 🌅 Beautiful! The owner, Marty was a pleasure to deal with, we certainly are looking forward to our next visit!

Perfection on Pass A Grille!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our families stayed here for a week and had an amazing time! The house is beautifully maintained and provided every essential and fun beach item you could have thought of. It's in a perfect location aross the street from the beach, Paradise Grille and The Hurricane Restaurant and other popular restaurants. The owners were lovely and very accommodating, staying in touch with me before our arrival so I had a run-down of everything. Overall, it is the perfect beach house with everything you need for a relaxing vacation in St. Pete Beach and Pass a Grille. We will definitely be back!

Great stay at the Flip Flop House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Flip Flop House. The house was in perfect condition, very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of plates, glasses, appliances..everything you would need. The elevator was a real plus if you or your family member cannot climb the stairs. They had plenty of beach supplies (chairs, umbrellas and beach towels) for a day on the beach. The location was perfect, across from the beach and just steps away from dining choices. The view of the gulf was lovely and we enjoyed watching the sunset from the upstairs deck. Passe-a-Grille is a real jem, an old time Florida beach town, quiet but with plenty of dining options and a friendly atmosphere. I would highly recommend the Flip Flop House.

This is the BEST Home on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

The Flip Flop House is by far the best home to rent in Passe-a-Grille. We've stayed many places over the years in Passe-a-Grille so we know what's available and the Flip Flop gets it so right! It's an immaculate home with all the amenities to make you feel as if it's truly your home. It's very quite yet so convenient being just steps away from the beach and the Hurricane restaurant. If it's available, we highly recommend renting the bottom floor so that you'll have 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. The views in the morning and sunsets were just perfect. Believe us when we say that it's the best place there is and rent it while you can. We plan to return again and again.

Shhhhh....don't tell anyone but...

  • 5 of 5

this is the perfect beach house get-a-way! My family & I stayed there for spring break. The location couldn't be better. In Pass a Grille, near St. Pete beach, without the St Pete beach crowds. It's right across the street from the beach and within walking distance of some of the best restaurants in PAG. But it doesn't feel crowded or "touristy". You can listen to live music playing at the food shack across the street while you sip your fav beverage from the upstairs balcony as the sun goes down. The decor is beautiful; beach chic meets clean and modern. The owner thoughtfully provided beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and even sunscreen! This home away from home has everything you could want and then some! They really thought of everything. The owners are friendly and very easy to work with! My apologies to them for not writing this review sooner, but I was being selfish! I want it all to myself! Dreaming of the day when we can visit again, hopefully for a longer time!

Flip-Flop House is Fantastic!,

  • 5 of 5

The Flip-Flop House is a fantastic home on Pass-A-Grille. We stayed 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. The location is excellent with the beach steps away and very close to all the shops/restaurants. The views from the three porches are all gorgeous. Viewing sunsets from the 3rd floor porch is spectacular. The house is really well appointed, updated and decorated. It has a great beach/tropics vibe. Kitchen is all new and has everything you need. Televisions, internet, laundry, etc all worked great and plenty of beach towels, chairs & umbrellas. Plenty of parking in driveway & garage. Keyless entry system is brilliant. Landscaping is beautiful with additional great private ground level patio seating area. You will be very happy renting this home, we definitely are. We would definitely return. The owner was very easy to work with and always responded very timely.
