Overview

Pass-a-Grille Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Beach cottage, 1 Q Bedroom + pull-out bed in livingroom, 1 Bath

Situated on 7 miles of powdery white beach. It is only a few steps to beautiful white sand beach called Pass a Grille! -

Completely redone, clean and updated home that sits above un-used garage and has hardwood floors, modern furnishings with craftsman style charm.

Palm trees abound on this property with an outside shower for your use, two beach cruiser bikes and tons of peace in a restful setting complete with soothing sunsets, shells and birds galore!

Very clean house with Central Heat and A/C Original 1920's Hardwood floors. Bathroom is made with Marble & pebble and glass tile. Upstairs porch/patio equipped with patio chairs, table. Downstairs there is an private totally fenced in patio with a BBQ and an outside shower you can use when you come home from the beach. The house also has off-street parking for one small car (only small cars will fit- you will also be given a parking pass- to use on any street on PAG!)

The house has a brand new, and very relaxing, Queen bed in the bedroom with large drawers below for storage. The extra bed is a very comfortable pull-out sleeper king/Queen in the living room (very comfortable thick foam mattress- no bars or beams to mess up your slumber) couch.

This house also sleeps only up to 4 people- its best for 2 but will work with 4. I try my best to make the vacation great for you so your stay means a lot to me I want to make it as perfect as it can be!

TIP: watch the video to get an idea of the house and the neighborhood.

((**Please only request days that are available in the Calendar of this house. Also, I do have a 5 night minimum for dates greater than 30 days away. Three weeks from current date, I do discount open days. It is a quiet area meant for relaxing and not meant for parties or gatherings so I typically will not allow weddings etc unless the whole property is booked**)).

Awesome restaurants and gourmet deli are just a few walking blocks away and part of the beach scene, which is perfect place for groceries, BBQ items or a quick snack.

The house sits off the beaten path and above an unused garage. It has a private porch and the furnishings new and modern. Please call me if you have questions.

About Lisa M Charest

Greetings! I grew up on Pass-a-Grille but I now live in downtown St. Petersburg where my daughter goes to school. I work full-time daily and have these rentals as my side passion. I compete in triathlons (swimming, running and bicycling) and have completed 5 Ironman races. We try to live simply by enjoying all the wonderful activities in our area such as the Dali museum, Ft De Soto- rated 1 beach in the world, bicycling on our 80 mile bike path, and windsurfing. Our next adventure is to learn to Stand-up-Paddle a popular activity in our area. I lived for awhile in NYC, CT (Fairfield county) and NY (Westchester County) during graduate school and for ten years I lived in the Northeast until I returned home to FL. I hope you enjoy your stay!

Lisa M Charest purchased this townhome in 1970

Why Lisa M Charest chose St Pete Beach

I love this beach, & I love this house. I personally redid most of the place myself. We lived there for a while as it is such a wonderful area, however daily demands called me away from the beach so I chose to make life easier and move closer to my daughters school. The beach house is within driving distance to my home, its easy to get to from the airport and an easy day trip to adventures in downtown St Pete, Tampa or Orlando. The best part of this beach house though is the peace that it brings to those who live there, the shelling, walking on the beach or just listening to nature. I look forward to moving back in a few years but for now I invite you to live in this beautiful setting and enjoy the comfort of Pass A Grille Beach.

Even if you only stay for a week you will leave with sunsets on your mind and the horizon and open air in you heart. Enjoy!

What makes this townhome unique

Nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and the Tampa Bay, Pass-a -Grille Beach is a gem with water and white sand beach everywhere in an underdeveloped little island. There are ten restaurants that are enticing, yummy and only a few blocks away. Cute shops and boutiques run along 8th Ave, the smallest downtown in the US which is perfect for strolling. Pass a Grille Beach is mostly a residential beach- It is perfect for a life made for walking, relaxing, cycling or swimming. The beach house is only a few steps from our beach trolley stop and the trolley can take you to wherever you want to go.. or you can just stay, enjoy the water, the sea grapes and the local restaurants as they entice all who come to this area. Above all enjoy the sunset that has made Pass a Grille/St Pete Beach the 'sunset capital of FL the water is all around to reflect the suns rays and shine with warmth on each glorious day.

A Wonderful Gift

  • 5 of 5

I contacted Lisa about renting this place for my sister as a gift to her. Lisa was so timely on her responses and so accommodating. The booking process was so easy and she communicated everything, anticipating questions before I even thought of them! My sister stayed a week here, said it was the best time she's ever had and said she wants to stay with Lisa at this spot every summer! My sister and I are planning to visit again next year and stay with Lisa. I would highly recommend her and her properties!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage is just perfect for two people. It is small but very comfortable and nicely decorated. I loved to sit on the patio and drink my morning coffe or to share a glass of wine with my husband.

The beach and many restaurants are just a short walk away. Try the Sea Critters and Gennaro's for a Pizza!

We had a small problem with the parking pass but Lisa got us a new one within the next day.

We hope to be back for another week soon. Thank you Lisa!

Great for a little get away time

  • 4 of 5

This small house was perfect for a little beach time before facing the winter blahs. It is well planned out and we felt right at home. We enjoyed having a place to sit outside and watch the birds and chameleons. The house has everything you need to feel at home. On a rainy day we enjoyed the board games and watching a movie. We rode bikes to breakfast and to the store for doughnuts and walked to a terrific dinner at Sea Critters (really good). We drove up to John's Pass to shop and watch the dolphins. We plan to return.
