About Leslie Hollweg
Welcome to Pass-a-Grille Rentals. We offer unique places to stay while enjoying the St. Pete Gulf Coast ... our own vacation homes. Years ago our parents came to the St. Pete area to enjoy the Floridian respite from the Wisconsin Winters. Over the years, as each of us started spending more and more time in the area, we started looking for places of our own to stay. We have found interesting properties that offer a quiet and relaxing pace. Each of our properties has been our own vacation home. They are all unique. Most reflect the cozy and relaxed beach atmosphere of the 1920's - 1940's. Over the years we have gradually upgraded them while maintaining their historic nature. Of course with a family that includes an architect (dad), interior designers, gardeners, and, most importantly, handymen, we have upgraded our places and continue to maintain them ourselves with pride. Our emphasis has been to preserve the feel and historic aspects of the properties while modernizing the inside facilities. Reflecting our interests in tropical fruits and spices, our gardens tend to be more out of the ordinary. We have exotic tropical and subtropical fruits, spices, and flowers. Look around and you may find our vanilla orchids, lychees, longans, lemon grass, cinnamon, passion fruit, pomegranate, kaffir lime, and macadamia along more traditional citrus and bananas. For flowering trees we have ylang ylang, michela alba, jacaranda, and royal poinciana along with the more usual fragipani, hisbiscus, jasmine, gardinas, oleanders, bird-of-paradise, and bougainvilla. Consequently, our gardens are not the trimmed and manicured standard of fancy Floridian estates. As we explore and sample the area, we learn about those special places to enjoy and visit. We also learn what NOT to do and where NOT to eat. Each of our units has a guidebook that we have personally developed over the years with maps, restaurant menus and recommendations, and places to fish, shop and walk.
What makes this House unique

Our gardens contain many flowering fruit and spice trees and according to the season, you can sample our bananas, loquats, kaffir limes, rose apples, macadamia, pomegranates, and several others. Enjoy the shade of our flowering trees and palms.

Madeira Beach Cottage
The property had a beautiful view and you could see it from the family room and kitchen. The home was very well kept up and clean. It was adorable. We loved watching the birds and feeding them. The only reason I’m not giving it five stars is the location. My husband and I weren’t crazy about the shops and restaurants at Adam’s Pass. There were a lot of t-shirt shops and mediocre restaurants. If that were to change, the area would be incredible!
Great place to stay!
We stayed here over Christmas and I was so impressed with the special touches provided. There was a little tree and some holly and a centerpiece with a candle and glass ornaments. It made it seem more like home. We spent Christmas Eve baking cookies and Christmas Day we cooked a roast! Cooking amenities were good - sunsets were even better! Highly recommended!
Fantastic vacation week.
We booked this property, basically, because of it’s location and proximity to Johns Pass Village and we were not disappointed. A short 5-minute walk took us right to the boardwalk in the heart of the Village. There is also ample parking (although it is quite expensive to park there) and on occasion, we did take the car.
The unit itself was wonderful. The decor was beautiful and had a nautical theme. The seating in the living room was adequate for two people to stretch out after a day of sightseeing, but would have been a little tight for two couples. The kitchen was well supplied and we ate several of our meals there saving us the cost of eating out every day.
The outdoor seating was very comfortable. We enjoyed watching the water birds, who were eager to come and get the fish my husband was catching off the dock. The vegetation surrounding the house is very tropical and provides a lot of privacy from the neighboring houses.
Thank you Leslie and Tom for sharing this little bit of heaven with us.
Welcome to our newly renovated, furnished, two bedroom, sides A and B, waterfront duplex in Madeira Beach, just a block from Johns Pass and 4 blocks from the beach.
John Pass, a quaint turn of the century fishing village, is home to "unique" retail shopping, a variety of restaurants, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and shelling tours, parasailing, and jet skiing tours." We are only a short walk from the famous Madeira and Treasure Island Beaches with miles of sand. Enjoy the stroll to Madeira Beach to watch the sunset and perhaps catch the Green Flash. An evening stroll on Treasure Island beach will find you walking next to large flocks of sleeping terns, gulls, skimmers, and shore birds.
Step out to your own patio with table and chairs and a gas grill or wander down to the dock where you can tie up your boat, fish, watch the dolphins and manatees or just relax. Our guests often enjoy hours of fishing from the dock catching Spanish mackerel, red snapper, sheepshead, and the tough to catch snook.
As a special treat you'll get to meet Beggah, our visiting great blue heron. Fall asleep on one of those comfortable deck chairs and you'll likely wake up with him standing next to you. Our snowy egret, "Cotton," has been known to come in to watch TV if you leave it on and the doors open. "Feathers," our great egret is now bringing his friends. Other regular visitors are a black-crowned night heron, a little blue heron, and a green heron. They'll patiently wait for a hand out, hot dogs preferred ... no bread. . No fool, Beggah flies north for the summer.
Our vacation spot is perfect for those wanting a peaceful, relaxing time at home, yet the activities of John's Pass are only a block away. Our guests refer to it as a tropical oasis with the surrounding trees and plants. Explore our mini-jungle of exotic tropical fruit and spice trees and tropical flowers. Grab a banana off the banana plant. Pick a gardenia and put it in your hair to enjoy its sweet perfume and the smiles of people noticing you walking by.
Our boat dock is 14 feet long and limited to 20 foot boats or less by prior arrangement at booking. The dockage fee is $50 per stay.
