About the property

1 bedroom cottage ideally located so close to the beach

* Island Charmer 2, is light filled, bright and airy, and is the second half of Island Charmer 1. It is comfy, inviting, and a beautifully decorated beach cottage, with a privately located tropical courtyard patio. It is one of the original homesteads on historic Pass-a-grille Beach and is ideally located in a nice neighborhood on a quiet residential side street. And!...it is just steps to the beautiful white sand beach and to the bay!

*With it's location in the middle of the island, you will have an easy walk to locally owned restaurants and unique shops, a small grocery and deli market, the beach trolley, our local beach museum, 2 parks, fishing off the seawall and piers, and swimming, sunbathing, shelling, bird and dolphin watching at the beach!

*The cottage welcomes you in with its colorful purple door and friendly gecko. You will have your own private entrance and off street parking in the driveway. It has recently been renovated and decorated in fun coastal style, while still retaining its vintage charm. There is a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, open to the living room with a new queen size sleeper sofa, two casual chairs, entertainment center, original heart of pine hardwood floors and a tropical ceiling fan. The bathroom has new fixtures, and new ceramic floor and tub/shower surround. The bedroom has a serene, relaxing color scheme, a comfy queen size bed, natural wicker chest of drawers, nightstand, vintage chair, tropical ceiling fan, and a roomy closet for plenty of storage.

* We hope you will relax and enjoy the large privately located courtyard patio with lush tropical foliage, while sitting around the wrought iron table or in one of the casual patio chairs. It's a great outdoor space to eat, read and unwind. Be sure to watch and listen for the wild green parrots flying overhead!

*Located in the garage for you are two beach chairs and beach umbrella, 4 coolers, and 2 adult size beach cruiser bikes. There is also a full size washer and dryer for your use, at no charge.

*The cottage and all linens are always professionally cleaned for your enjoyment.

*Island Charmer 2 is our "home-away-from-home", so we strive to make sure it has all the comforts and amenities you will need for a long or short term enjoyable vacation.

* If the time you're wanting is already booked, please check out Island Charmer 1,

which is VRBO #566058. Thank You!

average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Absolutely Lovely...

  • 5 of 5

Musa, & Demetrios have created a cheerful, comfortable, cozy beach retreat. Everything is well maintained, furnishings appear to be new, great bathroom, & everything you could need is provided in the kitchen. Decor is calming, along with interesting pictures, & beach themed nick knacks that give a homey feel unlike some other sterile rentals. Garage has washer, dryer, & everything you could want for a great day at the beach. Courtyard very private, nice setting for a drink or two in the evening. We have stayed at other more expensive rental homes in Pass-a-Grille they have nothing on this charming cottage. Had a few conversations with Musa via phone, & email, always a quick response, & a pleasure to deal with. We had the pleasure of meeting Musa, & Demetrios when we arrived, very kind people that couldn't have been more helpful...Thank you both for a great week!

Wonderful cottage in Pass A Grille

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I both loved our stay in the cottage.The cottage is neat,clean,comfortable and perfectly located in the heart of Pass A Grill. Demetrios was very kind and accessible whenever we needed to communicate.

You can tell he and his wife love their home. We have stayed in Pass A Grille many times and this was our

favorite place. Can't wait to come back!

Precious & perfect

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness, this unit is adorable! Even better than the photos! It is comfy (even the bed), spacious yet cozy, and so tastefully decorated. Calming yet happy! I felt like I was on retreat, which was in fact my goal. The owners have thought of every little thing: bathroom storage, makeup mirror, tons of hangers, hooks in all the right places, potholders, grocery list pad, you name it! I felt so at home! They communicated freely and appropriately, and showed as much hospitality as if I were visiting at their own home. The stress melted away! And the location cannot be beat--remarkably quiet, walking distance to shops, restaurants, beach, bay view, local museum, parks, and playgrounds. Best beach house I have ever rented!!! I intend to become a repeat customer.

We have found our "Home-away-from-Home!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I traveled as a child, and throughout my life every spring vacation to the St. Pete/Treasure Island area. I can remember as a little girl saying "when I grow up I'm going to stay on Pass-a-Grille."

I am now grown up (retired), and my husband and I have discovered where we plan to stay every year on Pass-a-Grille, and that is CHARMING COTTAGE 2!!!!

By just walking into the door, my husband immediately said "book us here for next year". As we continued our way through, we loved the beautiful decorating, comfortable seating, and the exceptional cleanliness of the cottage. We could tell that the owners take great pride in providing everything guests would need. With Airlines having weight restrictions on luggage, it was nice to not have to pack beach accessories. It was all provided for us during our stay.

We enjoyed our morning coffee, and then our snack/beverage in the early evening in the patio area. It felt so good to set outside (after a long northern winter) in the comfortable seating.

We found the the location of Charming Cottage 2 to be perfect!! A half a block away, and you are at the Intercostal Waters for fishing. My husband fished daily, and caught a variety of fish. But, unfortunately "the big one" got away.....

Even though we were unfortunate to not meet the owners, I feel we have developed a friendship within our phone conversations, and correspondents.

To: Demetruis & Musa, Thank you for sharing your "home-away-from-home" with us.

We truly "loved it" !!!!!

See you next year.....

Gary & Joan

P.S. This is the 1st Review I have ever written. I felt our experience at the Cottage Charming 2 was a "great" place to start!!!!
