Maryann and I live on 4th Avenue, just two doors down from The Berkeley Beach House. She is the owner of Mise en Place, one of Tampa's finest restaurants; I'm a corporate lawyer, specializing in the representation of private equity funds.
The Owner purchased this house in 2008
When the property was listed for sale, we viewed it as an opportunity to restore a great old beach house, to preserve our neighborhood's charm and village character, and to share the magnificent Pass a Grille beach experience with family and friends (some of whom we hadn't met yet).
Berkeley Beach House is located just steps from the beach, at the very quiet southern end of the peninsula but only four blocks from Pass a Grille's lively 8th Avenue shopping/restaurant district. For those looking for more nightlife, the bars and restaurants of the many beach communities are minutes away on Gulf Boulevard and beautiful downtown St. Petersburg is just a short (10 minute) drive.
My boyfriend and I recently stayed here. It was a studio with the perfect space! We could see the beach from our bathroom window! Such a wonderful location for the perfect price. We have decided to make this a tradition and will be back every year!
We have stayed a number of times in the Blue Dog Suite and the Pass-a-Grill Suite, and found both to be very nice, clean and comfortable. The location is perfect for us, at the far end of St. Petersburg Beach, very quiet, walking distance to good restaurants, and only a few steps to both the beach and the inland waterway. Elaine is a joy to deal with, and has proven flexible and accommodating. We love this place, and will return again.
This cottage is in a great spot right near the end of Pass-a-Grille with an "almost" view of the beach. Perfect for our family of four and our dog. The cottage was clean and well stocked with kitchen and bathroom necessities. This attention to detail is appreciated. We would love to stay here again! Constructive feedback: The beds need attention- they are creaky and uncomfortable and the guest user book needs a simple updating with clear instructions (not handwritten in margins). The payment and scheduling 'scenario' the owner has chosen is also a bit uncomfortable. He/she would be wise to review this choice to make it easier and more streamlined for the renter. That's it!
My family and I have stayed at the beach house for the last four years in both the 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom units. They both are great values. Great location; comfortable and really close to the beach. We will be back every year!
Tucked in back of the house, the Mango Suite is perfect for 4-6 people. It is located in a quiet neighborhood literally steps from the Gulf or Bay. Truly wonderful! The gazebo out back is perfect for morning coffee or an evening cocktail. My family of four -- my husband, two teenaged children and me -- were very comfortable in the suite. It is stocked with everything you'd need in the kitchen plus linens, towels, etc. It was absolutely perfect for our needs. We renewed our vows for our 25th anniversary on the beach, and our set up was at 4th Avenue -- we popped right over there from the house. I can't say enough about the space, or the ease of dealing with Elaine. She answered every one of my questions and made sure everything went smoothly. I can't recommend this property enough!
This was our second time to stay in the 1 bedroom Pass A Grille Suite. It has all the comforts of home and works out wonderful with our little Westie by our side. The kitchen has everything necessary for making meals and snacks. This beach house is really cute, very clean, has everything you need to be comfortable and is just steps away from the beach. This our favorite beach in all the world and can't imagine going anywhere else.
