Interaction with Guests
About a week before check-in, we will email you a welcome letter. This will have everything that you will need to get into the unit. Of course, we're just down on Corey Avenue, so stop by and say "Hi" while you're here!
The neighborhood is quiet and the people are very friendly. Located nearby is GiGi's Italian Restaurant, the Bon Aire and the Undertow beach bars, places the locals go to relax and catch the sunset. Also, a 1/2 mile south is the world-famous Don CeSar Resort, where DiMaggio and Monroe once strolled and it is rumored Mick Jagger wrote "Sympathy for the Devil."
The local transit authority has a trolley that takes you from the southern end of PassAGrille to North Clearwater Beach & downtown St. Pete. Also, Island Ferry Boat Tours provides a ferry service to bring you to downtown St. Pete from the beaches for $25 round trip! This new service coordinates their schedule with Free Beach Rides, which is very popular with the locals, to make your sightseeing outing a breeze!

Really nice cottage, exactly as described. Hosts were really helpful both before and during the stay. We would visit again!
Good communication before our arrival. We found the house easily, and our way in. The house is well taken care off, inside and out. Beach time is a professional agency. We did not know that we would not have the whole house. In the left wing, probably the garage at one time, there is a small studio. It was rented out to another party. We shared the the laundry room. For us this was fine: we had nice, quiet neighbours, and the bedrooms of the main place are in the right wing of the house. Future renters should be aware of this situation.
The location of this house is ideal. It's only a few houses down from Gulf Boulevard and easy access to the beach. We had the chance to meet the owners and they're wonderful people. We had a few minor issues with the Internet and it was quickly fixed within 24 hours. You are very well looked after at this place. Paul at Beach Time Realty is on top of everything. The house does come with some beach supplies for example beach chairs & umbrellas that guests are free to use. The barbecue had plenty of propane for one month we didn't need to refill. We had extra guests for a few days and we rented out the bachelor apartment that's attached to the house and it was perfect. The renovation was just complete including an ensuite bath and we were the first ones to use it. The king-size beds were so comfortable. There was plenty of room in the kitchen to get people involved in cooking. The hot tub was a real treat and the backyard is beautiful. The owner really has put an effort into making it feel like a true beach home. The house has plenty of room for 4 guests however if you have anyone over for dinner the table only has seating 4 people. We overcame this by bringing two outdoor chairs inside and they fit around the table. If you're looking for a beachside home and are staying either short term or long term we highly recommend this place. We went to this place for a month and we definitely would be back.
This IS the best place to stay on St Pete Beach! VERY clean place and all the peace/calm you will need for a getaway. Cross the street to the beach that is not crowded at all (even on weekends). All the amenities you could ask for! I will be staying here every time I go to St Pete!
The place was the perfect home away from home; you feel like a local straight away. It's only 5 minutes walk to the beach across Gulf Blvd. and the beach is fantastic! You're a 1 minute walk away from a big Wahlgreens which is awesome. And even though you are so close to Gulf Blvd. it is still very quiet and peaceful. And judging by the neighborhood it feels very safe. If we were to move to this area permanently, this would definitely be one of the houses and neighborhoods I would consider. The small garden in this place is also amazing, with the outdoor spa. The person that decorated this place definitely has good taste :)
I am so glad that you loved this house and the area! St. Pete Beach is a wonderful place with plenty to see and do, and I'm so happy that you had the opportunity to enjoy our home! Please give us a call the next time you're planning a St. Pete Beach getaway!
Great place! 100 feet from the Ocean. Great real estate company that helped with anything we brought to their attention. Spacious, great backyard space, and within a few miles of anything you'd like to do while on vacation. My family and I are very happy with our decision to stay here and will most certainly stay here again.
very nice property, well maintained and nicely situated. the host was responsive.
