Welcome to our new spacious beachfront Apartment on Historic Pass a Grille Beach, directly overlooking the glistening Gulf of Mexico. You will enjoy stunning sunsets and a magnificent moon lit ocean view.

Feel free to call with any questions-941-544-7440

The apartment is situated above the garage to our other rental property. It has its own access. Very private. Approx. 500 sq. feet. One bedroom one bathroom. Street parking with pass. Private washer and dryer. Secluded sitting area in back of the house. We just installed central air. Great views of the beach.

What—Never heard of Pass-A-Grille Beach? Well, then, before we tell you about our house we’ll have to educate you about the first beach community on the Gulf of Mexico to be developed as a weekend get-away location for successful Tampa and Saint Petersburg residents.

The area is a small spit of land merely 31 blocks long and one block wide at the south end of St. Petersburg Beach, starting just south of the historic Don Cesar Hotel. Pass-A-Grille got its name from Cuban fishermen, called “Grillers,” who would camp on the island to smoke their catch of fish before heading home. As you traveled through the pass you could see their fires, hence the name Pass-A-Grille.

Pass-A-Grille is NOT your typical Florida “beachy” beach town with hotels, motels, swimsuit stores and fast food stores wall-to-wall, If you are looking for this, you’ll have to go further north, past the Don Cesar. Pass-A-Grille is more sedate with a convenient grocery, quaint shops, inviting bars and restaurants, and a more relaxed style. And, everything is within easy walking distance, because the blocks are short.

22 blocks of beachfront and walkway a few steps to a nearby dune walkover. Once you cross the dune you’ll be presented with a wide, sandy beach stretching in both directions. It's like having your own private beach. There are never big crowds. A locals secret.

You’ll find some good bars, restaurants, and ice cream shops on this (the west) side. The Hurricane Restaurant is one of the most popular places, and you’ll get a great view while sipping a drink at the third-floor bar. By the way, there are no high-rise hotels on Pass-A-Grille—there are a couple of 7-story condos, but that’s it—

Or, walk one block to the other (east) side of the island, where you can dip a line in the water, arrange a fishing charter or scenic cruise, or merely stroll along the marine sites to some rather excellent restaurants. .

Less than an hour from the many attractions in Tampa and St. Petersburg. Our house is 2 blocks from the southern end of the island, and as close to “on the beach” as you can get. To the west there is the Gulf of Mexico, the beach, the street, and our house.

About Katie Kerr

We live 30 minutes away and love spending time at the beach when its not rented

Katie Kerr purchased this Cottage in 2017

Why Katie Kerr chose Saint Petersburg

We love Pass A Grille. We owned a condo 3 blocks away since 2011. We just sold it recently and bought this house. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Please feel free to call with any questions. 941-544-7440 Katie

What makes this Cottage unique

Sleepy little town. No swim shops. Not crowded. Its like your own private beach. Best ice cream shop around is 6 blocks away. Paradise Sweets. Yum Our house is situated in a residential part of town. Great for an easy going relaxing stay. Stroll across the street to the beach with your morning coffee or sit on the couch at side of house and watch the sun set.
