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.

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.

wonderful stay, found a bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

first time at this property and was wonderfully satisfied. location was wonderful, rooms very clean and maintained and supplied with everything. it was like staying in someones home. i would recommend this property to my friends all already have. in fact plan on other trip back there soon. restaurants were were good, hurricance and monkey bar were two we visited. best of all was the location to the beach which is what we were looking for. this was my birthday present and one of the best treats i ever had. loved the bicycles to get around. everything was perfect and not a thing i would change except staying longer. will go back for sure.

The place is quite adequate.

  • 3 of 5

The space is small, but quite adequate for one person. It was clean and efficient. The most convenient entrance from the car on the alley is to step down into the bathroom - a new and clever space, but just an odd entrance. No views - my car in the alley blocked the kitchen area window, and people walking along the living and sleeping area windows compromise privacy/security. The 2 air filter machines the owner wants to operate 24/7 are not quiet, but do work as the place was not damp; also the AC worked well. TV placed well for viewing on the loveseat or from the comfy double bed. Clothing storage units most efficient. Kitchen had all one needs for a week stay. 2 minutes walk from the glorious beach, and also quick access to shops, bars, etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! This house is perfect for two people (or in this case one person). This updated and nicely furnished house is a cost-effective way for one to visit a Multi-million dollar area on a budget. The house does have an air purifier that could be turned off anytime..however I do ask that one tries to keep the humidifier on whenever possible. Both are tucked away to the sides. If it needs to be turned off while one is sleeping totally OK.. Had the tenant let me know this was an issue I would have explained that perhaps it could be just turned back on while away from the house. Unfortunately is is an original BeachHouse and older houses can be quirky -in this case the dehumidifier helps get rid of any dampness from the old exterior mortar walls

Great property in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to Pass-A-Grille beach and most definitely will not be our last! This property is very convenient to everything in Pass-A-Grille and the bikes were a great way to get around, we thoroughly enjoyed riding around and watching the birds and lack of action. Being a dead end to St. Pete beach there wasn't a lot of vehicle traffic which made the area very quaint and relaxing and I didn't have to worry about getting run over on the bike. There are plenty of restaurants nearby all of which were good and the Paradise Grille on the beach was a cool place to hang out in the evenings and listen to some live music.

As for the Sand Pearl, we enjoyed the room it was a good size for the two of us and we enjoyed the outdoor areas in the mornings watching the birds and drinking our coffee.

We can't wait to get back!

Only reason 5 stars weren't given was the shower could use a door or curtain and an exhaust fan. It got hot quick in there and the floor/rug would get wet. That was minor and beyond that it's an excellent property!

Great location, close to beach, bars and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

Had a very nice stay in Pass-A-Grille! House was what we expected, had all the amenities and very close to the beach. For this price, you can't get any better. Took the bikes out shopping and touring. We've never been to Pass-A-Grill but we will be going back! I would recommend this place to everyone

Quiet back street, close to the beach.

  • 3 of 5

Smallish, bed is low Euro style. Everything clean and organized. Great spot for two. Had allergy issue so unplugged the loud scent on the wall plug. Owner has lots of instructions. Owner has a binder with good information on places to eat, shop things to do.

Owner's Response: Hi thanks for writing, yes as noted since its a small place the house is best for a single visitor or 2 people. Please share with me if a lightly scented oil is a bother; I would have made sure to remove it. I try to leave a lot of info for anyone visiting restaurants, best beach bars, best shelling, top places to vist etc.. any instructions are so you know where to park, where the bikes are the keys etc.. I find it better to share as much information rather than assume everyone knows the area or the house. Thanks and I hope you return to my home!
