PASS-A-GRILLE'S WATERFRONT CHARMER, KEY WEST STYLE BUNGALOW

St Pete Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Delightful renovated cottage 3bedroom/2 bath + large cozy loft

Relax and get lost in yourself by lounging in the hammock on the front deck of this whimsical Key West style waterfront bungalow, situated in the heart of Pass-a-grille's historic district.

The comfortable cottage and cozy loft has everything you could possibly need for your vacation. Just bring a toothbrush!

NOTE: We've done it again! Look for our 'Sunset Charmer' and Mini Sunset Charmer coming in the fall of 2014! We are making it every bit as wonderful as the 'Waterfront Charmer'. More to come.

Pass-a-grille is a charming Florida Community of days past. We are perfectly located in the heart of Pass-a-grille, right next to 8th Ave. which is the 'hub' of this quiet spot.

We take great care to make sure you have all the comforts needed to make a vacation a memorable experience. We're fortunate enough to have acquired many repeat guests, we're starting to feel like a huge extended family!

Continually being updated, the cottage has 2 decks - one that looks at Boca Ciega Bay and a second intimate, secluded, covered porch between home and the garage (loft). A privacy fence surrounds the home. A red aluminum roof makes the cottage quickly identifiable! Original wood floors, a totally remodeled and updated kitchen, romantic fireplace, ceiling fans, central air, cabana striped awnings, bright tropical artwork and furnishings complete the charm of old Florida living with contemporary amenities. This is our personal guest house for our friends and family when they come visit, so we make sure it never starts looking 'tired'.

Our improvement for 2012 was a complete kitchen remodel. The 2013 improvement was adding Hardie Board siding and a color change! Our 2014

project is adding another old 2/2 Pass-a-grille bungalow and 1bdr apartment to the

business. We're havin some fun now!!

Because we are one of the original Pass-a-grille Cottages we have a bit of a rambling, add-on, footprint. The cottage sleeps 5, 1 queen, 1 full, 1 twin. It is 2 bdroom/2 bath and a small Florida room, with 1 twin bed, which can be closed off from the rest of the cottage. Additionally, the loft sleeps 4. It is an upstairs/downstairs with kitchenette configuration. 2 twins on top level, 1 full bed on bottom floor.

About Patricia Black

Tom and I love to travel, our preferred way to lodge is at VRBO properties. We still like B &B's, Inns and nice hotels! For some reason it always seems like we land on an island.

We have 2 big labs that we adore.

Empty nesters with 4 adult children living from NYC to LA. AND 3 grandchildren who we can't get enough of!!

Tom is considering retirement and I just love a new project!

Patricia Black purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Patricia Black chose St Pete Beach

Pass-a-grille is a step back in time, hidden in a bustling area. It is a true old school neighborhood.

What makes this cottage unique

So incredibly close to the beach! We can watch the happenings at the Merry Pier across the street, watch the dolphin, birds and fishermen from our lifeguard chairs on the front deck. Pass-a-grille is the greatest place to walk your dogs or just to take a walk. After the beach gets boring the sights along the sidewalk are entertaining; old homes, renovated homes and new ones. We are right next to 8th Ave, the historic street, with fun beachy shopping, not the typical tourist stuff. Action, but not too much. Nice place to relax and slow the pace. When you want action, go north of the Don Cesar Hotel and the action begins!!

A Fabulous Holiday Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
We have just had a fabulous holiday in Florida (late August 2014) and the best part was staying at the Waterfront Charmer. Pat the owner is delightful and the house has everything you want. It’s in a great location, quirky, peaceful, all amenities included and if nothing else sitting on comfy high chairs on the bay side porch watching the world go by whilst having a “tipple” is one of life’s pleasures. The nearby pier and bay side front kept us entertained with fishing and the fabulous beach was a very short walk away. Lots of nice places to eat in easy walking distance. My teenage daughter loved having her own space in the garage attic. I would recommend this place to everyone. Cheers Pat!

picture perfect

  • 5 of 5
This was the second year for our family get together and it was just as much fun as last year. The location of the cottage is fantastic for what we as a family like to do. The beach is a stone's throw away from the back porch so for our little ones it was easy to walk even laden down with all our beach supplies. There are several bars which serve delicious food and "umbrella" drinks just around the corner and from where you can enjoy the end of the day while watching the perfect sunset. Although my son docked his boat just down the street at another marina, the small marina across the street was very convenient for bait, and the kids had fun fishing off the pier at night. Of course the house is the best feature-clean, fully stocked, and cleverly decorated with care by the owners! It was the highlight of my summer vacation and hope we can do it again next summer.

Love the Waterfront Charmer

  • 5 of 5
My family had a great time at the Waterfront Charmer. We love Pass a Grille and have vacationed here for the last four summers.
The Waterfront Charmer had plenty of room for our growing family. The loft was a wonderful addition since we vacation with my nephew's family that has three small children. Our dogs love the near by park.
Best place we have stayed at Pass a Grille and the Blacks are excellent property owners.

Our Summer Place

  • 5 of 5
We have spent a month at the Charmer every summer for several years now. We love this piece of paradise. It's a perfect spot for our family and somehow it keeps getting better! The house and decor are beyond charming. The furnishings and linens are top quality. The kitchen is better equipped than my own. When the owners remodeled they turned a small "cottage kitchen" into a fully functioning kitchen in exactly the same area, it was magical!

We stay twice a year, every year

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful, well-equipped cottage is in the best part of Pass-a-grille. We were in love after the first day we stayed in it several years ago. It is even nicer than the pictures on this site show. The owners, Pat and Tom, could not be nicer, more gracious people. The furniture is comfortable. The house and grounds are perfectly maintained and the kitchen is well-equipped enough to cook a holiday meal from scratch -- should you wish to do that instead of enjoying all of the excellent restaurants on St. Pete Beach and in downtown St. Pete (only a 10 minute drive away). There are beach toys, umbrella, and chairs in the garage. You can buy fresh fish across the street. The beautiful white beach is one short block walk away. This cottage is perfect! Thank you Pat and Tom, for sharing this cottage with vacationers.
