About the property

Historic Pass-a-grille Beach House w/ garden Patio, Wifi, 2 Bikes, Central AC

Relaxing Queen Bedroom Beachhouse- with garden patio & great layout-good for a small family OR perfect for two! The house is situated on the small island of Pass-a-Grille Beach that is only 5 houses wide with 7 miles of white powdery sand beach. It is just a minute walk to the beach! The "SeaShell" house has a new kitchen & a bathroom w/a step in shower, Travertine flooring, & glass tile.

NOTE the best rates are set at exactly a week intervals or exactly a one month stay- due to new VRBO/Homeaway algorithm- OR send me a message to quote you an off week stay price.

The kitchen is open concept with eat-in breakfast nook for 4 so it makes a nice early morning or later evening area for relaxing if anyone in your family likes to sleep in or go to bed early.

Pass-a-Grille beach is a predominantly residential area, the SeaShell House is a historic house built craftsman style in 1920"s and it offers a relaxing and secluded spot for those who enjoy sunsets, shelling early morning walks or just a simple quaint, small beach town atmosphere perfect for disconnecting.-

Updated clean kitchen and bath, with original 1920'S hardwood flooring down hallway, bedroom and living room. Calm and inviting paint and trim with modern furnishings & craftsman style charm!

Palm trees abound on this property with your own patio area, grill and an outside shower for your use! There is a ton of peace of mind in a restful setting complete with soothing sunsets, shells and birds galore! Completely bright, airy, clean and updated original beach home that includes new furniture and two great outdoor patios!

Patio porch is equipped with a bbq & sitting area and you have use of two bicycles to call your own while on vacation!

This house could work for up to 5 people as the bathroom is down the hallway and not through a bedroom- It is best for 2-4 but will work with 5 because I have a pull out queen couch and a pull out lounge chair that both convert to beds in the living room . 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 videos to see what the area is like and to understand the layout of the house so you can visualize your stay on Pass-a-Grille!

((NOTE the best rates are set at exactly a week stay and exactly month stay due to new rates algorithm. One month from current date, I do discount open days- if you can send a check- just ask me-please. 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 entire property is booked**)).

Awesome restaurants are just a few walking blocks away and Shaner's (voted best on the beaches for years!) gourmet deli with freshly caught fish, marinated meets, steaks, rubs for fish, poultry and veggies! It is the perfect place for groceries and its only blocks away- great for bbq items or a quick snack.

Please call me if you have questions. Brand new and very comfortable sleeper queen couch and brand new queen bed in bedroom.

Blocks away- rent a boat, go shelling on the beach, fishing, nearby golf and tennis. Minutes from shopping, museums, entertainment and nightlife for a satisfying and relaxing vacation.

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 compete in triathlons (swimming, running and bicycling) for fun. We have three dogs (poodle and a 2 golden retrievers) and try to live simply by enjoying all the wonderful activities in our area such as the Dali museum, bicycling on our 80 mile bike path, and windsurfing.

Lisa M. Charest purchased this cottage in 1975

Why Lisa M. Charest chose Pass-a-grille

I love this beach house. I personally redid most of the house. 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 easy to get to from the airport and an easy 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 vacation there, the shelling, walking on the beach or just listening to nature. 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 cottage unique

Small island only 5 houses wide 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house was light and bright and airy and everything was nice and clean. The kitchen was well stocked with all you would need for a stay. Everything worked and the AC did its job. And there were plenty of towels. The unit had been recently refurbished and some careful thought had gone into it as everything fitted neatly into its space and because of that, it gave an increase sense of space and tidiness. The location was terrific as it was a simple two minute walk to the beautiful sands of Pass a Grille Beach. Car parking was right outside the rear door. If you are after an agreeable rental, in a lovely quite location but no distance at all from all the amenities St Pete Beach offers, and easy access to the surrounding area, look no further.

Quaint, Clean and Close to the Beach

  • 4 of 5

This quaint, little beach house was perfect for our four day stay in Pass a Grille. Mere steps from the beach, it is tucked away with a private outdoor seating area, new kitchen appliances and has been updated throughout. If we were staying for a longer period, we probably would have preferred a slightly larger space, but it worked out really well and I would recommend it!

My husband and thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days at Lisa's seashell house! We were fortunate enough to experience high temps, sunshine and gorgeous sunsets every day. It was a very short walk to the beach which was awesome! The beach house was clean, well equipped and we couldn't have asked for more. This is one of the nicest beaches in the world and we walked every single morning before breakfast. We loved Sea Critters for dinner on more than one occasion and the Seahorse was an ideal breakfast stop. We will definitely return!
