About Patricia Black (Pat)

Tom and I purchased this, our 2nd Pass-a-grille property, at the end of 2014. We have been renting out our Pass-a-grille's Waterfront Charmer, also in Pass-a-grille, for 10 years. We love the area, live in the area which makes it very easy to monitor and manage the rentals.

Patricia Black (Pat) purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Patricia Black (Pat) chose St. Pete Beach

This home was a mess when we purchased but it had great bones!!! We have been diligently dealing with contractors and getting the property up to CODE and to the beauty it can be. (i.e. 'shoveling money' into it ...please don't ask for a discount!!!) It is located in a quiet neighborhood, amongst people who live here year around.

What makes this cottage unique

The newly paved courtyard area has seating and beautiful foliage, with a small 'dipping' pool. The beach is a 2.5 minute walk from the back door. This part of Pass-a-grille Beach is hardly used since parking is a pickle, and it is beautiful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a fabulous oasis at Pass-a-grille! This place - with it's cool decor, the little beach house , the pool that's the perfect size, the location - have all been the perfect place for our family vacation. Thanks for such great attention to detail - I hope we can come back again and again.

Lovely beach compound!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this apt together with the garage apt for a family Christmas, and it was perfect for us. We had the right amount of togetherness and separation. The units are plain jane on the outside but both very well equipped and decorated and very comfortable. The small poolside bedroom with single trundles is a bit narrow, but perfect for teens and tweens to have their own hangout space. It is a separate building from the other bedrooms, so would not be appropriate for young children. The owner, Pat, was great to deal with. She even brought over a trike for our youngest to use. You'll have all the beach gear you need and two cruiser bikes. The large patio is a perfect gathering spot and the pool, although tiny, was great for the kids, even in December. (A guy came to clean it, but It could use some equipment available on site for us to vacuum up all the leaves that drop into the bottom of the pool every night). Rentals in PAG aren't cheap, but the pristine beach and general quiet retro appeal of PAG make it one of my favorites. Unfortunately, many of the modest, retro beach cottages are being torn down for McManions with very entitled occupants. The only downside of our stay was some unpleasant interactions with a couple of these crabby neighbors, who did their best to make use feel unwelcome. But other than that, this was a lovely stay for us!

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming, beautifully outfitted cottage in Pass-a-Grille which is in the most delightful community around St. Pete. The cottage is extremely comfortable with all the amenities one would want and Pass-a-Grille is the most historic, well preserved community without all the honky tonk that is the rest of the island. Convenient to St. Petersburg via the Bay Way, close to the Don Cesar ( the most wonderful restored original Florida hotel), steps from the most beautiful beach with white sand like velvet and the wonderful Suntan Art Center where one can do a drop in art class, who could ask for more.

Perfect Beach House Get-a-way!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay at this property. Owner provided every amenity we could think of. House was very cute-very beachy decor. Owner was extremely helpful and friendly. This is great spot for a stay on St. Petersburg beach, close enough to walk or bike to everything.

Perfect home, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

In a word: AWESOME. This home is beautifully decorated and so well-thought out. Every possible need has been covered-- bath robes, sunscreen, bikes, shaded patio with comfy furniture, ceiling fans, TV's in every room, music box outside around the pool, beach chairs and umbrella, etc. etc etc. It is a short and gorgeous walk to the beach. I have rented a lot of homes and this is definitely one of the best!

The Sunset Charmer is located in a quiet residential area just one block from the Gulf of Mexico. Though the back gate is lush foliage a dipping pool and a large newly paved patio area, some of area is is covered but most is open to the sunshine. Lounge chairs, an eating area, Restoration Hardware outdoor wicker chair/ottoman/loveseat make the area special. Outdoor fans help with creating a breeze in the hot weather. An outdoor shower - open to all- is in the pool area too.

Through the back door you are in the dining room, seats 6-8 with additional leaves for table.

New kitchen with new appliances, totally loaded with utensils.

Living area has flat screen HDTV with DVD player. 2 bedrooms each with a queen bed (good mattresses - from Macy's) are decorated in green and pool blue. Between the bedrooms is a full bath. Our 3rd bedroom with a twin and ensuite shower/toilet/sink is located next to the covered pool area (next to garage)

High thread count sheets, nice pillows, good mattresses, fluffy bath towels and beach towels are all included. Hair dryers, Webber grill, 6 beach chairs are all for your use.

We provide a complementary bottle of wine so you can enjoy the space when you arrive. We also provide you with your first breakfast of muffins, butter, jam, coffee, and OJ.

Pass-a-grille Beach -in this location- is pristine and not crowded because public parking is at a minimum. You will have access to the garage for parking. 2 mid sized cars fit in the garage, or if larger vehicles, one in garage and one parallel to garage. Parking passes are available for street parking but I will need advance notice.

We purchased the home and the apartment in May 2014, and did some major renovating. We have another property Waterfront Charmer VRBO 163627 which we have been renting for about 12 years. We love vacationers and hope you have a great visit.We are one block from the beach. As a bird flies the cottage is directly behind a large Gulf Front home.

Note: available but at an additional cost

Cottage has a full 1/1 mother-in-law apartment that can be rented with the cottage, or have guests while you are in cottage. They have a private entrance, the are 2 windows (in kitchen and corner dining room) look out at the back of the pool. They cannot see into the pool.
