Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Pass-a-Grille Beach - Island Charmer 1

1 Bedroom with 2 queen beds, 1 Bath Cottage

* Island Charmer 1 is the front half of our 1925 Craftsman Cottage, which is ideally located in the middle of the island, on a quiet residential side street in Historic Pass-A-Grille Beach ...just steps to the beautiful white sand beach and the bay. It is within easy walking distance to unique locally owned shops and restaurants, fishing, grocery/deli, nightlife and parks. Explore the area by cruising around the island on one of the beach cruiser bikes provided for you

*Immediately feel welcomed as you enter the cottage through a bright and airy enclosed front porch, perfect for that morning cup of coffee or enjoying a good book. Step into the open living and dining area where you'll find fun beach decor blended with vintage charm. Relax and enjoy the flat screen smart TV, DVD player with plenty of DVD's to choose, wifi, lots of windows, tropical ceiling fans, and plenty of comfortable seating. The glass top dining room table seats four, with two extra seats at the open breakfast/serving bar. Original pine hardwood floors, brick fireplace, coffered ceilings, glass doorknobs, and period doors and trim all add to the vintage craftsman charm of the cottage.

* Our kitchen remodel is complete! And we now have beautiful solid maple shaker style cabinets with soft close drawers, gorgeous quartz countertops, undermount sink, and porcelain plank tile flooring. It is fully equipped for short and long stays, and has a brand new full-size dishwasher, refrigerator, and range, reverse osmosis water filtration system, microwave, and pantry to store your food.

* Sleep well in the two queen beds that are in the bedroom along with two chests of drawers, two nightstands, a roomy closet and large window seat for plenty of extra storage.

*Outside is a lovely privately located tropical courtyard patio with chairs for relaxing, and a wrought iron patio table and chairs, for outdoor dining. We provide all linens, beach towels, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, four sizes of coolers, and two beach cruiser bicycles. A full-size washer and new dryer are located in the garage for your use, at no charge.

*Island Charmer 1 is light and bright and airy, and always professionally cleaned for your enjoyment!

*Please visit VRBO #686391, if the time you're requesting is booked for Island Charmer 1. Thank you!

Charming, immaculate, relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful, stress-free week in this adorable bungalow right in the middle of it all. Steps to beach, restaurants, pier, and lots of other great things to do. Saw manatees in the surf, found great shells, watched a flock of green parrots, ate great food and explored the area. Super friendly owners provided great information and an easy experience. Will be booking again!

A fan is born....

  • 5 of 5

Never thought Florida was a place I would enjoy but my husband is an ardent birder so where he goes I go and that meant off to Florida to capture ( on film) a reddish egret. My only input was where to stay. I wanted something off the beaten path, something "Old Florida", something quiet. My husband found Island Charmer in Pass a Grille. Perfect home with more than adequate space for him to do his editing at the end of the day's adventure and for me to go hang out in the courtyard or sunroom and read or knit. So peaceful. And when late afternoon came we moseyed down to the beach with our owner provided chairs and beach towels for a swim and a little sun. The beach, by the way, is at one end of this quiet block and the bay is at the other. Easy walk. The Paradise Grill has great food and is a whole three blocks away on the beach. They have a custom of ringing the old Ships Captains bell at sunset. Nice tradition. We also enjoyed "Sea Critters" restaurant. Be sure to eat outside at dusk or later so you can feed the fish that gather in the underwater lights. All the seafood that I cooked was from the little Deli across from the Wharf. A little pricey but delicious. I have been chatting up our new found treasure to all my friends. These owners are delightful and thoughtful and have a most comfortable, well-appointed home. We enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to go back next year. Can't say enough good about Island Charmer.

Adorable beach cottage experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beach cottage! It has an adorable beachy and homey feel to it. The beach is half a block away. Having access to beach bikes, beach chairs and an umbrella was a bonus. We would definitely stay there again. Owners were wonderful to work with.

Beach House Escape

  • 5 of 5

We are back to frozen, snow covered Ohio and our short fun time at Passa a Grille seems like a fleeting dream. We wanted you folks to know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your lovely, quaint little Beach House. We compliment you on your decorating and preserving the ambiance of this "old Florida" abode and keeping it part of the overall charm of unique Pass a Grille.

perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We found the cottage to be perfect for our fall get away. Location was ideal to beach & water activity. The cottage was outfitted with everything we needed. The owners thought of it all! Comfortable and clean, too. Very important to us! Pass a grille is quaint with a landscape we just couldn't get enough of..we hope to return again!
