About the property

Charming PAG Cottage only steps to the beach & walking distance to the Don CeSar

This historic Pass-A-Grille cottage is a step back in time, when life was simpler and the beach life was even better still. Wait - the beach life still is better! Voted #1 Beach in the U.S. and #5 in the world by a major online travel company, Pass-A-Grille has sugary white sand and warm Gulf waters, both only steps from your front door. Located on a quiet street off of Gulf Blvd, this 1000+ sq ft home has lofted ceilings that have the same beautiful hearts of pine wood as the floors throughout. Banks of windows welcome the Florida sunshine and you need only step outside your door to witness the magnificent sunsets that herald the end of another beautiful day on St Pete Beach. The free-form pool has a privacy fence & lush tropical landscaping. It is the perfect retreat for enjoying the Florida lifestyle. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and the other with two twin beds. All bedrooms have new flat screen televisions, as does the living room. The updated kitchen has a range, refrigerator and microwave and overlooks the pool. The bathroom has a tub/shower combination and comfort-height toilet. The living room has ample seating for company and is nicely divided for those who want to watch television and those who would prefer to relax, read or visit in front of the wood-burning fire.

Though Pass-A-Grille is a sleepy beach town, it has a vibrant and eclectic downtown area with great spots for dining and shopping. From Evander Preston's custom jewelry to any of the many locally owned gift shops filled with unique gifts. There are no chain stores here! Diversity defines Pass-A-Grille and the lucky few who can call it home year round. For the rest of us, the ability to enjoy this charming location for a few weeks or months is a welcome retreat from demands of our real lives, hundreds or thousands of miles away. Join us and live like a local, eating breakfast at The Seahorse or Hurricane restaurants. Catch a boat at Merry Pier and enjoy a day of deep-sea fishing or go dolphin sighting. You are guaranteed to spot our aquatic pals, the ubiquitous dolphins, whose beguiling smile pretty much sums up what we all feel on Pass-A-Grille, 'Life is good!'

If you fancy a trip into 'The City', downtown St Petersburg is only ten minutes drive. The waterfront downtown area boasts many fabulous sidewalk cafes and shops, as well as several world-renown museums. St. Petersburg has the only permanent Dale Chilhuly exhibit and the purpose-built Salvador Dali museum which boasts the largest collection of Dali paintings outside of Spain. There is also the Fine Arts and History Museums, The Mahaffey Theatre and Tropicana Field, home to the Tampa Bay Rays professional baseball team. There is never a shortage of great things to do in Tampa Bay!

Our vacation rental has been carefully supplied with all of the essentials and many of the luxuries that a discerning guest would expect. We understand how important your selection of a holiday home is to the success of your vacation. That is why the Beach Time Team work diligently to ensure that every property we manage is well-maintained and ready for your check-in.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house was great! Really quiet, small, cute street and exactly 40 paces to the sand off the front porch! Neighbors were quiet and friendly when we saw them once. The pool was nice. Furniture is a little dated, but other than that the house has a really great retro, 1950's beach town and "old Florida" charm to it. The town is super cute and can't wait to go back!

A wonderful rustic cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great location, feet from the beach.

Short walk to convenience store and restaurant.

Quiet neighborhood. - parking no problem.

Swimming pool and spa loved by our grand kids

A little more rustic than we expected but still a lovely little cottage.

Some items a little weary and could do with being replaced, ie., drier and outdoor grill.

We've booked again for next year.

Very unique house and loved the backyard pool!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay for the most part and the home was one of a kind! Secluded pool and backyard were very nice. Inside the wooden walls and exposed ceilings were cool as well. Only things we didn't like were the horrible mattress in every room and the lack of a dishwasher. There were also two propane tanks for the grill but both were empty so we had to buy a refill for our one time grilling. Atleast the next guests will have a very full tank!

Overall, I would recommend this for a group of 4 and possibly stay again.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! We hope you come back and stay again. I checked the mattresses and they are not worn or sagging, maybe just a personal preference. Thank you for letting us know.

great location, nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

For the money, this spot is excellent. You are steps from the beach. Pass a grille is a quite area perfect for families. The cottage is comfortable and perfect for a max of 4 people. Could use a dishwasher, but has every other creature comfort.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We considered a dishwasher but don't want to change the character of the cottage to achieve it! I hope you found the dish supplies that we left for you.

Nice Location, Close to the Beach with a Pool that is Pet Friendly

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2 week stay. The property is in a great location, just a short walk to the beach. The beach was not crowded and provided a lot of privacy. The location is great if you like to walk. We walked every morning along the beach to the Pass-A-Grille Beach Grill for coffee.

The property was clean and provided everything we needed. Our only issue was with the pool heating unit located outside the bedroom window. Because of the time of year the unit ran about 80% of the time, the noise was very noticeable in the bedroom.

In all we were very satisfied with the property and would recommend for future visits.
