The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was so much more than we had expected! It had many of the comforts of home, yet still the feeling of a vacation sweet! We spent a lot of our time by the pool relaxing and enjoying the tropical foliage the view of the popular Don Cesar day or night was simply breath taking! We were but minutes from the beach and could walk with beach chairs to enjoy a foot soaking sunset every night. Minutes from shopping, many popular restaurants, including Critters and The Hurricane. The night clubs with live music were wonderful. A quiet cozy place for an inexpensive honeymoon, anniversary or vacation!!! Both my husband and myself, got more than we expected through our brief understanding over the internet. We have agreed to rate this place a 9, we would of given it a 10 but we are afraid it may cause it to be occupied the next time we wanted it at our finger tips!

Alittle slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The little mother-in-law suite is a perfect distance from the beach. The beautiful and well maintained pool is right outside your door and acted as an oasis to have breakfast. The unit itself is very clean and set up nicely for one or two people. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom shower was big enough, and the air conditioner worked great when needed. Possibly the only drawback is the size of the refrigerator, the kitchen sink and there really is no cooking facilities. But I did make do because of the close proximity to a great carry out and tons of eateries. You can grille food on their gas grille and Shainers land and sea market has great meats for grilling. The owners were very nice. I felt very safe there also. I would love to return!

We had a super time in our studio rental. We are always rushing at home and we truly relaxed in Passe a Grille. The owners and rental agents were very nice and accomodating. We have decided to book next year.
