|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Park your flip flops and beach gear in the welcoming foyer, venture upstairs and slip into some comfortable furniture while drenching in exclusive resort like decor punctuated by cheerful coastal colors. Two bedrooms and two baths, located on separate floors, afford a sense of quiet privacy for sharing the house with children or guests. Beautiful Brazilian Cherry wood floors in the living areas and bedrooms are complemented by ceramic tile in the kitchen, bathroom and foyer.
High end kitchen appliances will make it a breeze to prepare a simple snack or a gourmet meal in style. This brand new kitchen is fully outfitted with glassware, dishes, cooking vessels and creative kitchen tools.
The first floor bedroom is large and cheerful with a walk in closet, a queen size bed with pillow top mattress and adjacent bathroom. The incredible master suite, sporting a king size bed with pillow top mattress, is on the top floor of the house and features bay to gulf views from two balconies. Down the hallway, find a commodious dressing room/master closet on your way to a well appointed Master Bath featuring dual sinks, tub and massive tiled cylindrical shower. Enjoy the sunset from the Master Bedroom balcony while sipping your favorite cold drink ensconced in tall Island Time tropical chairs offering a spectacular, unimpeded view. Late at night, revel in the silence and privacy afforded by the insulated glass windows or open up the doorwall and listen to the gently lapping waves.
The foyer is designed to be your one stop beach access point: Beach towels, totes, sunscreen and beach chairs are situated so that you can keep all of your beach essentials within easy reach on your way out the door to the beach. Your car is easily accessible from the rear of the foyer nestled in a one car garage with automatic door opener.
It’s difficult to imagine a better home to stay in while enjoying all that the area has to offer and will make your stay one to remember.
THE FLIP FLOP LIFE
Nicknamed the “Flip Flop Beach House”; you can exist quite nicely in this wonderful historic beach community with only flip flops and shorts. Park your flip flops on any one of 3 spacious balconies or front patio area and enjoy an unequalled panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico.
Come to the Flip Flop Beach house to while away your time relaxing and enjoying life in the slow lane of the Pass-a-Grille National Historic District. Paddle boarding, shelling, beach walking, basketball courts, tennis courts, bike riding, dining, shopping, fishing, shuttle to Shell Key, and much more are all within comfortable flip flop range. On weekends, catch the Island Troubadour style music and art fair action on the beachfront patio directly across the street (weather permitting). Paradise Grille shares the patio and features good beach food and provides a great spot from which to enjoy the spectacular sunsets with like minded sun worshippers. Flip flop a few more feet directly onto Pass-a-Grille Beach! Named one of the top beaches in the USA, The Beach received a 2013 Travelers Choice Award. Or, flip flop 100 steps over from your front door to the famous “Hurricane” restaurant for fine food and soothing libations.
Looking for a day trip? Flip flop onto the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) bus and explore all of the Gulf Beaches. Take 20 or so flip flop steps from your front door to the Trolley stop and go all the way to Clearwater with access to hundreds of shops and restaurants along this route.
Use your Flip Flop abode as a convenient home base for a “Tour de Florida”. You’re just 2 hours to Orlando, a little over 4 hours to Miami, and 40 minutes to Tampa International Airport. In a mere 10 minutes, you can access I 275 via Pinellas Bayway at the North end of Pass a Grille.
When you tire of all your flip flopping, settle down into a comfy chair and enjoy a Blu-ray disc or Brighthouse Cable selection on the 42” LCD TV. Or curl up on the couch with your favorite laptop or tablet and wirelessly surf the web. Just before you retire for the evening, catch the late show on HDTV in the Master Bedroom.
We have a lengthy relationship with the St. Pete/Pass-a-Grille area. After renting numerous vacation residences ourselves we dreamed of purchasing our own home.
This is truly a unique home in a unique location. We love the nearby Hurricane restaurant, but the view from our balconies is just as good!
I rented the Flip Flop House for several weeks--spending time there alone, with my husband, with a group of girlfriends, and with some of our children/young grandchildren. It was perfect for every purpose. The house is beautiful yet comfortable and practical for guests of any age (we ranged from 4 months to 63 years). The layout of the house provided gathering space yet plenty of privacy too. Everything you need is thoughtfully provided--well equipped kitchen, large bathrooms, laundry, multiple furnished decks, bright and sunny space throughout. The location is fantastic--the beach is right across the street, restaurants/ice cream/coffee/happy hour/groceries/entertainment are very convenient and walkable, too. Finally, I loved working with the Flip Flop House's owners--great communication, quick responses, and very considerate. I've already reserved our next trip!
We had such an excellent time at Flip Flop, and Pass-a-Grill. This house is gorgeous and made our vacation extra wonderful. From having all the needed extras: every cooking gadget, beach towels and accessories, great parking, plus much more. Too having the beach literally across the street, steps away from the front door. You couldn't ask for a better beach house. The beach in itself was delightful, and not crowded.
Everyone in our party agreed we will be back!!
After the selling of a family home in St Pete, we wanted to find the perfect location to return to the beach that holds many memories for us. Boy, did we hit the jackpot! The location was perfect for all of us. Right across from the beach, right next to the Hurricane restaurant. Everything within walking distance. Restaurants, shops, rentals, fishing..... Our teenagers had tons of freedom. And with all of these options, it quiets down in the evenings.
The house was perfect! Updated, clean, felt like a home! Loved the kitchen and living space. Loved the balconies. New washer/dryers! Great entrance to leave your flip flops after returning from the beach. Towels and sheets all included. Great big closets. Plenty of parking for our 2 cars and a beach parking pass. Good grief, they have thought of everything!
Owners great to work with and very pleasant.....
Oh, and I have to mention the elevator. Perfect for groceries and luggage. Loved the key-less door lock - so easy to use and never had to worry about losing the key at the beach.
The grounds were so pretty and loved the foot showers! Like I said, the owners have thought of everything!
I hope to rent again next summer! and the next! and the next!!!
I had been looking at this listing for several weeks before I booked our trip. This was my first experience with VRBO and I was a little hesitant. I had been to the Pass-A-Grille area before and loved it, so we decided to go for it. I'm so glad we did! This property has a prime location, central to everything Pass-A-Grille has to offer: shopping, dining, beach. We walked everywhere and only drove when we wanted to explore the St. Petersburg and Clearwater areas, which were short and easy drives. The Flip Flop Beach House had upscale and well maintained decor and was extremely clean, which made us feel as if we were home. The owners were pleasant to work with and accommodating to our needs. We plan to rent the Flip Flop Beach House again and feel blessed that we found this gem. We would absolutely recommend The Seahorse for breakfast (and lunch), which is a short, pleasant walk. We enjoyed ice cream every night at Paradise Sweets, just around the corner. The beach is just a few steps away. There are nice, upscale restaurants within steps, and also other nice establishments that offer burgers, tacos, etc for lazy lunches or quick bites without having to walk far from your beach chair. The owners had a very informative Guest Guide with valuable information, including local menus. I really appreciated that the essentials were available (toilet paper, hand soap, paper towels, trash bags) upon check-in. I was able to get my family right to the beach without feeling the need to rush to the grocery store (just a few miles away). I highly recommend The Flip Flop Beach house and can't wait to return!
Awesome -great decor-best mattresses-steps from the beach and restaurants-yet very quiet and peaceful-you will not regret staying here.
We stayed a week in this home for my daughters graduation from eckerd college. We had an amazing time. The location is stellar and the home is the perfect place for a beach getaway. It was amazingly stocked. There are 3 amazing patios for enjoying the sea views at different times of the day. The sunsets are fabulous, we loved staying here and actually felt very depressed to have to leave. Spacious, clean, well appointed. Highly recommend!!!
Casual to fine dining restaurants and shopping within a short stroll. Weekend art/craft show right across the street. Unlimited leisure and cultural activities a short drive away.
