Car: Recommended

The Sunset Charmer is located in a quiet residential area in the heart of Pass-a-grille 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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Pass-a-Grille Beach, Saint Pete Beach, FL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
