About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Blue Water, White Sand! Come to our little corner of paradise, an easy 28 minutes from Tampa Airport or 15 minutes from St. Petersburg and Clearwater Airport. Our two-bedroom, one-bath apartment, built in 1944 and completely renovated, is just 100 paces from the sugar-like sand beaches of the Gulf and just 70 paces from the Intercoastal Waterway. Be prepared for your breath to be taken away, as you cross the sand dune walkover and see the bluest-blue and greenest-green Gulf for the first time. Think Corona beer commercials.

Rent a car if you want, but you will find that you can walk everywhere you need to on our little island. Great restaurants like Paradise Grill, the famous Hurricane's, and the Seahorse will have you believing that you have just stepped out of your parents' 1955 Chevy. Go deep-sea fishing or take a shelling or sunset cruise from little Merry Pier, or rent a pole, buy some shrimp bait and catch sheepshead, grouper, or snapper off the jetty. Grab a cone at our local ice cream store, Paradise Sweets, and stake out a bench on the sea wall. Wait for the daily parade of dolphins leaving their safe intercoastal environs and heading out to the Gulf for hours of play and eating – you might even spy a manatee poking its bristly nose up for air!

When lazing your days away eating grouper and shrimp – so fresh they are still salty – gets old, you are only a short drive from Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, the Salvadore Dali Museum, and the Ringling Museum. Orlando is only 90 minutes away and Sarasota, for a great day of shopping and dining in St. Armand's Circle on Siesta Key, is a simple day trip. Of course, there are outlet stores along the way, or you can go native at a beachy fish joint on Anna Maria Island.

Completely renovated in 2007, our second-story apartment with its own private entrance is full of our favorite tropical art and the colors of the Gulf. A large Great Room blends seamlessly into the brand new kitchen, with a king Tempurpedic bed in one bedroom and two twin beds in the second. A full sleeper sofa in the living room and a yard to call your own will all make you feel right at home. You'll want to invite everyone you know for a sleepover, but we're sorry to have to limit you to those you mentioned in your initial inquiry. Enjoy breakfast or dinner on the deck inside our landscaped and fenced yard. The owners live right on the property - separate from your space, of course! - so your wish is our command. We will answer your initial inquiry within 36 hours. Finally, our property is a smokeless and a firearm-free zone.

Just one thing, you have to promise to leave when your stay is over. We have more guests arriving!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Midwesterners Ann and Chris 'found' Pass-A-Grille in 1990, traveling here for vacations with our mothers for almost ten years before purchasing our home which we call Blue Water White Sand. We are proud and happy to say that we were married in 2014 and plan on spending the rest of our days right here! Ann is a Benefits Consultant and Chris is retired and manages the property. We have two Australian Shepherds, Scout and Ben, and love to travel, sail, play golf, kayak, fish, and spend time just chilling with our PAG friends.

Why the Owner Chose Pass-a-Grille Beach, Saint Pete Beach, FL, USA:
We first came to Pass-A-Grille in 1990 and immediately felt as if we'd stepped back in time. Our little town typifies the 'old Florida' feel. We call it 'Mayberry on the beach.' Everyone knows each other - from Andre the mailman, to Rebecca and Julie at the Salon, to Debbie at the Seahorse Restaurant, to Bruno the Turtle Man - it can take an hour to walk your dog just because of all the conversations with friends! On the other hand, we are minutes away from major league baseball, terrific museums and restaurants, and all the beach life you could want. We can be fishing in five minutes and setting off on our sailboat in ten. Every sunset is an art show and it's tough to beat the cornhole tournaments with a beer at the Paradise Grille. Life is pretty darn good.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The most pleasant by-product of staying in Pass-A-Grille is how your spirit finds quiet again. Walking the beach or the endlessly interesting alleys, a peace descends on you, washing away all your stress and worries. This is the Florida that many of us knew as children - beaches full of sea life, a convenience store, knotty pine tables at the local breakfast spot, nights so quiet you can hear the waves from a block away, and one and only one stoplight. Come and enjoy riding your bike down the middle of the street again!
