It is the perfect place for groceries and its only blocks away- great for BBQ items or a quick snack.

This house also sleeps 4 people better than most because the bathroom is via the living room and not through the bedroom. 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!

Please call me if you have questions. Brand new and very comfortable sleeper Queen/King (very comfortable thick foam mattress- no bars or beams to mess up your slumber) couch and new Queen size bed in bedroom. One nice additional point about this house is that the bath is off of the living-room so one wouldn't have to awaken the person sleeping in the bedroom to use the bathroom.. nice for a small family or a girls trip .

Three weeks from current date, I do discount open days.

About Lisa

Greetings! I am work and teach at a local college and have years of experience working in Industrial Psychology and HR in NYC and CT. I grew up in PAG (pass a grille) and love it so much that I had to move back to FL. I take pride in decorating and trying to make the house perfect for you. I have hand selected all the items in the house and hope you enjoy the tasteful decorating and smooth layout!

Lisa purchased this house in 1981

Why Lisa chose Pass-a-grille

This area is paradise and it is wonderful to own a small part of an island!

What makes this house 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.

Location is Key

  • 5 of 5

Our location was perfect for us, we could walk down the street to the beach, restaurants, and we are morning walkers, Pass A Grille is perfect for the walker or just to ride a bike.

Relaxing retreat by the Beach

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Pass-A-Grille. The Beach house Northstar, was clean, comfortable, and well equipped. It was only a stones throw from the beach, which meant we could easily walk there and back. The beach itself is so beautiful, with white sand and lots of shells.There are no big towering hotels, and the road is obscured by sand dunes and sea oats. We would be happy to stay there again.

Bright beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This bright and clean house was everything we needed for our weekend getaway. The complex offers many amenities for relaxing outside as well, including a hammock and grill. The house was just steps away from the beach and parking was easy as well. Lisa offers very easy directions and was very easy to work with. I hope to return again!

Perfect pet-friendly escape!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I must commend Lisa on always promptly getting back with any question or concern I had. Secondly, I was very happy to find a pet friendly place in Pass-a-Grille and her pet fee was extremely reasonable (She does require proof of heartworm and flea medication, but I very much appreciate that!)

I thought North Star was incredibly cozy, quaint and comfortable. (For people looking to nitpick, the stove leans and the Ikea lamp leans and a few pieces of countertop laminate had chipped off, but I thought it gave the place character.) Lisa had plenty of cute dishes, mugs and cookware. She does start you off with coffee. Condiments, possibly left by other guests, were well within the use-by date.

She supplied a hair dryer, hand soap (yummy Mrs. Meyers lavender scent), paper towels and toilet paper to start you off.

Her place is bright and airy and makes you feel comfortable.

The location can't be beat! You are right in the heart of quaint Pass-a-Grille. You can walk to the beach, the bay or Merry pier where different boat tours take place. She also supplies beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas and various beach toys for kids!

The common areas were well kept. The grills were being used by other guests and seemed great. Her patio furniture and hammock were inviting.

There are a few restaurants and ice cream shops within walking distance. Grocery stores or pharmacies are still only about three and a half miles up towards St Pete. (Be warned -they are doing construction so try to appreciate seeing houses and back streets on your detour, but it does add to the time it takes you to get in and out of Pass-a-Grille)

I thought her rules were very minimum and appreciated. Check out was not complicated in what she asks of you.(Some places require so much that you wonder what you're paying a cleaning fee for)

I had a wonderful stay and can't wait to return!!

Thank you Lisa for sharing your space with me!! You are doing a great job!!
