Located on the Southern End of St Pete Beach, is this exquisite property known as, Turtle Run...This luxury 4 bedroom beach front property was built in 1936 and is one of the last 'real' beach houses in St Pete Beach, which was recently voted #1 by Travelocity in 2011. St Pete Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in The United States. The home is located on the Gulf Of Mexico on a white powdery sandy dune. It is very private and has all the amenities. In early summer, you can find turtle nests on the beach.
Imagine rising early in the morning and the first thing you see is the Gulf of Mexico and a long expanse of sandy white beach. Take your coffee and newspaper out to the deck or go down the pathway for a walk on the beach. Do some shelling or watch the pelicans dive for fish.
This lovely home has been renovated to make it more modern, however, the charms of a 30's Florida bungalow remain. This home is made of cypress and cedar woods. It is a wonderful home away from home, that will create life long memories for you and your family.
Come stay with us, and make it another fantastic day in paradise!!! The sun is waiting, see you very soon!
This beach house is owned by a young couple who reside in Arizona. We plan to make it our retirement home. We purchased it from a 'favorite' uncle's estate, he lived there for 42 years. We have updated and modernized the home and plan to retire here.

Why carolyn orndorff chose St Pete Beach
Pass-a-Grille and St Pete beach have the most beautiful beaches in the world. I spent many vacations as a child in this home.
What makes this house unique
Pass-A-Grille is a small friendly community. You can walk to 5 star restaurants or to a beach joint. The property is 30 minutes from the Tampa airport and downtown. Disney world and Orlando are 2 hours away. Downtown St Petersburg, has many museums, art galleries and entertainment venues, such as the Mahaffey Theatre, the Dali museum and many others.
The property has a paved sunning area, a balcony accessable by 2 of the bedrooms to sit on to watch the beautiful Gulf of Mexico sunsets. There is a lower deck with ceiling fans and plenty of seating for outdoor living. This is an ideal place for large families or 2 smaller families.
Turtle run is agreat place to stay it has lots of room. They think of everything you need for your stay I would recommend this to anyone. It is a very beautiful place to stay right off the beach with a great view. The pictures of the house do not do it justice at all. Love the stay and will do it again.
