Great location and apartment!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great apartment with everything you need. The location was awesome and close to everything. Lydia and Kim were lovely and respected your privacy. When we needed help with the tv they were there very quickly. Fun time! Lots of great places to eat and the best beach ever! We were very happy with Pass a Grill....maybe too much construction on the roads!

Owner's Response: We were so honored to have you! We think Pass A Grille is pretty special and love to share it with our guests! The road construction is dreary! It will be done someday! Love to have you again!

Perfect getaway for married twenty-somethings

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a getaway from the cold Minnesota weather, and I'm thrilled we found this VRBO in Pass a Grille. It was clean, updated, and only a 2-minute walk to the beach. We are a young married couple in our late twenties and this was the perfect little place for us. I wish we could have stayed there longer! Pass A Grille is a perfect location, too. It's a peaceful neighborhood far away from the bustle of St. Petersburg and Tampa, but close enough to get there via Uber or the trolley (no need for a rental car). We even partied at the bars in downtown St. Petersburg for St. Patrick's Day! We found a really fun bar with an outdoor dance patio. :)

My only complaint is that the owner never came to meet us and let us know where to find things like the grill, washer/dryer, etc. As a result, we didn't learn where the grill was until our last day when the renters upstairs told us. That being said, she was very responsive via text with our questions so I'm sure if we'd asked she would have told us. Regardless, we'd love to return!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed our place. We are so sorry we did not get to meet you. We were living off site while our house was being renovated. We are back on site and would love to have you come visit again and meet you. Thanks again for staying with us and hope to see you again! Lydia and Kim

AMAZING little home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING home away from home… Everything you could ask for plus more. It’s a really nice little cozy place. With excellent upgrades there was a washer/dryer in the apartment that came in very handy, the description is very accurate and Ms. Lydia and Ms. Kim are extremely nice and welcoming !! As well as quick to respond when trying to reach them. We had an amazing time on our fishing trip and there are plenty of nearby locations to go out catch some great eating fish… In addition the beach is within walking distance and they have bikes and beach items for you to use if you choose to. We can't wait to come back and stay at this lovely apartment.

I will start with the bad news: At some point, you are going to have to leave. There. I said it. Fair warning, because you won't want to.

What a lovely place in a wonderful location! Everything is "just right" with this property. Thoughtfully appointed, decorated and stocked. Nice and well kept while being very comfortable. Hardly used my car because I walked everywhere. Locals are friendly, the owners of this place are wonderful (friendly, warm, good communication).

The bed is very comfortable; the space very nice - enough space to make it feel open and easy to move around, but a cozy feel as well. Very nicely decorated/finished. What a great place for a relaxing time in Pass-A-Grille! I can't wait to get back!
