About the property

Two Bedroom apartment with dock of Waterfront Duplex in Madeira Beach.

French doors off the living and dining room open onto a flowered yard and semi-private dock with a gorgeous view. This newly renovated, beautifully furnished 2 bedroom duplex overlooks the water and the beautiful, Gulf sunsets. Off the living room is your own deck surrounded by an oasis of beautiful tropical plants and at the end of the yard is a dock where you can tie up your boat, fish, watch the manatees or just relax. Our rates and availability calendar are at Pass-a-GrilleRentals com.

Our vacation spot can be perfect for those wanting a peaceful, relaxing time or for those who desire the activities of John's Pass

The two bedroom side of the duplex consists of two bedrooms; the master with a king size bed and a queen bed in the 2nd bedroom both with wicker furniture and flat screen TVs. The newly remodeled marble bathroom has a large tiled shower and granite counter. The fully stocked kitchen has also been remodeled with marble counters, new ceramic top stove, garbage disposal, new dish washer and large refrigerator. The living room, with a queen sleeper sofa, and dining room open up with two sets of French doors to the private deck. We provide high speed WIFI, large screen cable TVs, tile floors throughout and a telephone with free US and Canadian phone calls.

We have tried to decorate the apartments with tasteful, Floridan fabrics and interesting pictures and decor. The white tile floors give the rooms a clean and spacious feel, while the French doors and many windows offer a bright interior.

The duplex is in a quiet residential area on a dead end street with very little

traffic yet you are just a block from historic John's Pass and a short walk to the miles of sand beaches.

John Pass, a quaint turn of the century fishing village, is home to 'unique retail shopping, a variety of restaurants, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and shelling tours, para-sailing, and jet skiing tours.' We are only a short walk from the famous Madeira and Treasure Island Beaches with miles of sand. Enjoy the stroll to Madeira Beach to watch the sunset and perhaps catch the Green Flash. An evening stroll on Treasure Island beach will find you walking next to large flocks of sleeping terns, gulls, skimmers, and shore birds.

Step out to your own patio with table and chairs and a gas grill or wander down to the dock where you can tie up your boat, fish, watch the dolphins and manatees or just relax. Our guests often enjoy hours of fishing from the dock catching Spanish mackerel, red snapper, sheepshead, and the tough to catch snook.

As a special treat you'll get to meet Beggah, our visiting great blue heron. Fall asleep on one of those comfortable deck chairs and you'll likely wake up with him standing next to you. Our snowy egret has been known to come in to watch TV if you leave it on and the doors open. They'll patiently wait for a hand out ... no bread. No fool, Beggah flies north for the summer.

Our vacation spot is perfect for those wanting a peaceful, relaxing time at home, yet the activities of John's Pass are only a block away. Our guests refer to it as a tropical oasis with the surrounding trees and plants. Explore our mini-jungle of exotic tropical fruit and spice trees and tropical flowers. Grab a banana off the banana plant. Pick a gardenia and put it in your hair to enjoy its sweet perfume and the smiles of people noticing you walking by.

2 bedroom suite: 1 king size bed, 1 queen size bed, queen pull out sofa in the living room newly tiled bathroom & new marble kitchen

If available both apartments can be rented together. Check pagrent c o m for availability.

About Leslie Hollweg

Welcome to Pass-a-Grille Rentals.

We offer unique places to stay while enjoying the St. Pete Gulf Coast ... our own vacation homes.

Years ago our parents came to the St. Pete area to enjoy the Floridian respite from the Wisconsin Winters. Over the years, as each of us started spending more and more time in the area, we started looking for places of our own to stay.

We have found interesting properties that offer a quiet and relaxing pace. Each of our properties has been our own vacation home. They are all unique. Most reflect the cozy and relaxed beach atmosphere of the 1920's - 1940's.

Over the years we have gradually upgraded them while maintaining their historic nature. Of course with a family that includes an architect (dad), interior designers, gardeners, and, most importantly, handymen, we have upgraded our places and continue to maintain them ourselves with pride. Our emphasis has been to preserve the feel and historic aspects of the properties while modernizing the inside facilities.

Reflecting our interests in tropical fruits and spices, our gardens tend to be more out of the ordinary. We have exotic tropical and subtropical fruits, spices, and flowers. Look around and you may find our vanilla orchids, lychees, longans, lemon grass, cinnamon, passion fruit, pomegranate, kaffir lime, and macadamia along more traditional citrus and bananas. For flowering trees we have ylang ylang, michela alba, jacaranda, and royal poinciana along with the more usual fragipani, hisbiscus, jasmine, gardinas, oleanders, bird-of-paradise, and bougainvilla. Consequently, our gardens are not the trimmed and manicured standard of fancy Floridian estates.

As we explore and sample the area, we learn about those special places to enjoy and visit. We also learn what NOT to do and where NOT to eat. Each of our units has a guidebook that we have personally developed over the years with maps, restaurant menus and recommendations, and places to fish, shop and walk.

What makes this house unique

These two apartments are waterfront with a dock. They are on the ground floor so there is easy access. Our gardens contain many flowering fruit and spice trees and according to the season, you can sample our bananas, loquats, kaffir limes, rose apples, macadamia, pomegranates, and several others. Enjoy the shade of our flowering trees and palms.

Charming, Private Waterfront Getaway near John's Pass in Madeira Beach
average rating of 4.8 based on 20 reviews

Great location, great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This little house on John's Pass was the perfect spot for our girls vacation. It had everything we needed as far as kitchen utensils, grill and cooking dishes. This made it easy for us to cook dinner in a few of the nights. We enjoyed our coffee near the water and were greeted by the variety of birds each morning. Overall we really loved this place, but it was the location that made it perfect. We were able to walk to so many places from here. From the beach to the restaurants, the fish market and shops we spent most of our time exploring on foot. We were a little bummed that the wifi here was not great, but this was not a major issue for most of us. Thanks again Leslie & Tom!

The house was well furnished with everything you would need for a enjoyable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing! We could catch fish right off the dock! The birds were friendly, but they didnt like bread.....only our shrimp bait! The area was quite and peaceful! The house had tv in each room. The beds were comfortable. You could turn on the air conditioner if you wanted or open the windows. There was a place to sit on patio and dock. The kichen had all the utensils and pans you needed for cooking and serving. Daily walks were close to anything you needed or wanted. The house had beach towels, chairs and toys to go to the beach with, along with a cart for easy walking with gear. We would like to stay there again for our next trip to Florida!
