Other Things to Note
Considered one of the most pleasing beaches in the area, Pass-a-Grille has fine white sand and shells backed by waving dunes of sea oats and palms protecting the colorful cottages from nature's fury. The gradual drop-off of the firm sand into the low waves makes for safe swiming for kids and miles of excellent walking or jogging at sunrise or sunset.

Most importantly Have a great vacation and enjoy the house and pass-a-Grille!
Loved the cute beach house! So many things to do and so little time. While my stay was short I was so happy to stay at Lisa's Beach House - she was so organized by sending all the details and recommendations prior to my stay. The house was very charming and accommodating and included every thing we needed, the only suggestion I have is to have an umbrella for those rainy days. Enjoyed breakfast at the Sea Horse, shopping on Main Street and the best margaritas at the Sea Critter (happy hour price $2.98!). I really didn't want to leave! Especially knowing I would be returning to snow and cold. I will be back but for a longer time, Pass-a-Grille beach will be my get away destination. Thanks Lisa for your sharing your wonderful beach cottage.
Warmly, Lisa from Minneapolis
The house is very quaint and was very clean when we arrived. There were bikes we could use to explore the town, floats to use in the gulf and even a longboard. We were very pleased with our choice.
It was so close to the beach! I loved it. Lisa was great and the place was very clean. It was so nice I can't wait to go back!
Would stay anywhere in the world that Lisa had organized!
She was so easy to work with. Lisa had the apt fully ready to go, very clean, very easy, wonderful instructions and "guide to the area". Thought of everything.

About the Host, Lisa
Greetings, thanks for checking out my beach houses! I grew up on Pass-a-Grille Beach and now lead a very busy life as a mediator, educator and bicycle store owner. For fun I compete in triathlons (swimming, running and bicycling) and have completed 4 Ironman races. I have two dogs (poodle and a golden retriever) and try to live simply by enjoying all the wonderful activities in the St Pete area such as the Dali museum, Ft De Soto- rated 1 beach in the world, bicycling on our 80 mile bike path, and windsurfing. I have lived in New York City, Connecticut, (Fairfield county) and NY (Westchester County). I love this area and am thrilled to share it with you. When you book I will send you details about places to see and things to do in the area so you can create fantastic memories!
